1. mankind - this was the first feud that made mick foley a great wrestler scince he was the 1st to taker look human, also he was the 1st person to not only beat taker in the 1st two matches (king of the ring 1996 and summerslam 96, boiler room brawl) these two had but to do it with the mandible claw is an amazing thing to do and was unheard of back then.


2. kane - no explanation needed here these two have cost each other title shots set fire to one another and on 3 different occasions kane has helped to have taker buried alive.

3. HBK these two have had some of the best matches ever which include a casket match two wrestlemaina matches and competed in the first ever hell in a cell.

4. hhh again same as shawn 3 great matches at wrestlemania hell in a cell and no holds barred match

5. yokozuna - he would have to be the biggest threat to taker before the feud with mankind these two have competed in casket matches one of which yokozuna beat taker with help of 15 guys at one point. he has also helped to break takers face along with mabel in 95 so some major history here.

But which feud launched Hulkamania into the stratosphere? I would argue Hogan/Andre, Hogan slamming Andre is probably the greatest Wrestlemania moment of all time.

Nice list, I personally would put Kane first, easily one of the greatest feuds in WWE history. You could also put in his feud with Hogan or Orton, but I'm just nitpicking, nice list.

This year olng rivalry is one of the greatest slow burn wrestling angles of all time. From Randy Savage taking the title at Wrestlemania 4 in the tournament finals, the rest of 1988 was a fantastic example of brilliant storytelling. The friendship and then jealousy issues between Savage and Hogan was told brilliantly, and the way Savage reverted to his crazy, paranoid old self was brilliantly acted. This whole storyline, right up to Wrestlemania V, was amazing.

2. Jake 'The Snake' Roberts
Two men operating at the peak of their potential. Roberts brought a sauve and psycotic darkess to the angle whereas Savage played all out crazy. The pay off matches weren't as great as the storyline, which is a shame, but the feuds gets bonus points for provoking some incredible fan reactions (the snake bite on Savage, Roberts slapping Elizabeth). Compelling stuff.

3. Ultimate Warrior
Savage and Sherri asking Warrior for a title shot, Warrior refusing and Savage fucking him over to cost him the title was a great way to build to their epic showdown at Wrestlemania. These two were such charasmatic performers that their chemistry in the ring was electrifying. You genuinely couldn't look away whenever these two were together. Their match at Wrestlemania 7 is also Warrior's best ever match, hands down.

4.Ric Flair
Their rivalry in early 1992 coincided with the time that I fell in love with WWF. I loved Flair's OTT performances, Savage's jealousy and the way the angle was played out over such a long period of time (almost a full year). Their animosity towards each other was portrayed so convincingly over their feud that I believe they could've been having their back and forth matches based on it for years, if both men had stayed with WWF. Their WCW matches were also pretty good.

5. DDP
Savage excelled in lengthy rivalries and his eight month classic with DDP is fondly remembered as the best of his WCW work. He never fully lived up to his potential in WCW until this barnstorming feud. It's the only WCW that I can rewatch and still care about.

It's a shame that Savage never remained with the WWF. They totally misused him. In 1993-1994 he did nothing, whereas he could've been raking in the big bucks in main event feuds with Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker and even a Hulk Hogan feud in mid-1993.
I think Lawler has to be here somewhere, their fued lasted for years, in and outside of the ring. It was also probably the first ever inter promotional angle. Made even better because there was legitimate animosity. If you have never seen some of the Lawler v Savage stuff it is worth a watch. Way more intense than any of Savages WWF fueds.

I'll check them out. I've been looking at a lot of Laweler's stuff lately.

Default Re: Top rivals of some of the classic stars

sorry guys I am not giving this a rest I just really enjoy listing this stuff about the classic stars. So forgive me if I keep adding...

Jimmy Superfly Snuka

1. Ray Stevens: Probably his hottest fued although not the greatest Superfly moment
2. Don Muraco: No one will ever forget the image from MSG of him jumping off the cage onto Muraco in an era where that was the highest of spots. Mick Foley and the WWE history machine have not let us forget for sure, and rightfully so in this case.
3. Roddy Piper: Coconut anyone?
4. Jesse Ventura: Their early career fued in the Pacific Northwest elevated them both and got them noticed by rival promoters.
5. Bob Backlund: Few people remember the heel Snuka, he was great. Fewer people remember that in this case Snuka missed the death leap from the top of the cage during this fued.
HM: Bull Ramos, Ripper Collins, Lou Albano

Kamala

1. The Undertaker: Probably his most well known angle. He will always be remembered as one of the Takers WM foes.
2. Andre The Giant: Totally forgot this one on the Andre list. I should have had Kamala there. Their fued climaxed with an awesome cage match where Andre sat on his chest once and Kamala kicked out. Before a second sitting did him in.
3. Jerry Lawler: Lawler helped create the Kamala character, and then had several epic runs with the big man.
4. Brusier Brody: As for many of the monsters of that era, he was put up against Brody and chaos ensued.
5. The Von Erichs: As Akbar's main hand in Devastation Inc. it was a given he would tussle with the "chosen family" of World Class
HM: Jake Roberts, Great Kabuki, JYD

Here's mine.

Dusty Rhodes

1. Ric Flair - So many great bouts and moments, especially during the Horsemen era.
2. Superstar Billy Graham - Their three matches sold out MSG and had the fans screaming for more.
3. Randy Savage - Not a whole lot of great things happened for Dusty in WWF. This however was great both match and story wise.
4. Terry Funk - Two creative geniuses at work.
5. Harley Race - You gotta be a tough sonovabitch to work Broadways with Race. Dusty did many times.

I really like how this match is shot. It's really dark and has a cinematic film noir quality to it. Thanks for the recommendation.
