30 Best WWE Matches of All Time
They may not have created professional wrestling, but the WWE has certainly revolutionized the business. The WWE knows they can create an amazing match by putting the best stars in front of a huge crowd. While there have been thousands of great matches since the WWE was created in 1980, these are the 30 best WWE matches of all time:
30. Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect – SummerSlam 1991
Bret Hart was primarily known as a tag team wrestler prior to this match for the Intercontinental Championship. Everyone in the WWE knew that Bret Hart was clearly extremely talented in the ring, but they did not know if he could become a major star. The ultimately decided to give him a chance as a singles wrestler at SummerSlam 1991, and it turned out to be the best decision they could ever make. Bret Hart and Mr. Perfect put on a wrestling clinic as Hart started his climb to become one of the greatest wrestlers of all-time.
29. Randy Orton vs. Mick Foley – Backlash 2004
While the previous match was all about displaying technical wrestling ability, this match was all about brute force. Mick Foley was known for hardcore matches, but his match for the Intercontinental Championship at Backlash 2004 may be his best. The carnage displayed in this match was a staple of Mick Foley’s career, but it also proved that Randy Orton can headline the company. This match turned out to be Mick Foley’s last big match, and the first of many big matches in Orton’s career.
28. The 1992 Royal Rumble Match
The Royal Rumble match is always one of the best matches held by the WWE each year, but it has never been better than 1992. Since there was not a champion at the time, the winner of this Royal Rumble match automatically became the biggest star in the WWE. Every major superstar wrestler at the time was featured in this match including Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair and Randy Savage. Ric Flair lasted in the match for over an hour on his way to winning the WWE title for the first time. This remains the best performance in Royal Rumble history, and it will probably never be topped.
