Many compare that with Flair's 2 year NWA championship reign during that time. He defended it over 350 times a year and a LOT of them were 1 hour long matches. Edit: and would defend it traveling from territory to territory.
I'd say Hogan is in the discussion. Short matches, w/e, Rock and Triple H were never great technical wrestlers, either, but they told stories. WMania I-III (lost it soon before IV?). Come on. I mean, come on. You know? Come on.

WWE favorites: Punk, Sheamus, Lesnar, Ambrose, Rollins, Reigns,
