WWE Championship PPV Matches : 1985-1992

Hulk Hogan vs Roddy Piper TWC 85 : ** 1/4
Hulk Hogan vs King King Bundy WM II : ** 1/4
Hulk Hogan vs Andre The Giant WM III : ** 1/4
Randy Savage vs Ted Dibiase WM IV : ***
Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage WM V : **** 1/4
Hulk Hogan vs The Ultimate Warrior WM VI : **** 1/4
Warrior vs Rick Rude SS 90 : * 1/2
Warrior vs Sgt. Slaughter RR 91 : ** 1/4
Hulk Hogan vs Sgt Slaughter WM VII : *** 1/4
Hulk Hogan vs The Undertaker SS 91 : * 3/4
Hulk Hogan vs The Undertaker TTIT 91 : **

The earlier WWE Championship PPV matches featured some very basic wrestling action, best represented by the Wrestling Classic encounter between Hulk Hogan and Roddy Piper. Here we had an under 10 minute long match that featured some good character development (especially by Piper with his heel tendencies) but very basic wrestling moves with a big atmosphere behind them. Hogan usually wrestled basic style matches, and it seemed like he had his own formula for them, especially against monsters like King Kong Bundy and Andre the Giant. The Bundy match is a legit decent match, while the Andre match is a pile of garbage that has the biggest boost when it comes to historical significance EVER.

Randy Savage and The Million Dollar Man managed to wrestle a good match at WM 4, however I feel it was burdened down by the fact that we saw these guys wrestle multiple times earlier in the night, and neither man really broke out anything special for the match, sans the ending of course (FUCK why did Hogan have to hog the spotlight?). I'm probably one of Hogan vs Savage's biggest fans, as I love the simple story being told in that match and I truly do believe it's an all time classic match. As a matter of fact, because of it's simple story and heel vs face intensity that I feel it has, I have it rated higher than Warrior-Hogan, which I feel gets too much love from time to time. Don't get me wrong ; It's a fucking awesome match, it's just I feel that it gets more praise for the drama in the match and being the first big time face vs face matchup, instead of getting praise for being a well paced big time fight.

The Warrior title defence at Summerslam 90 in the cage, is a very very underwhelming bout. Just an uninspired , incoherent mess that I didn't enjoy at all. Never saw the next year's fuckfest tag, but I'm willing to assume that it could potentially be the worst main event in Summerslam history. The Slaughter match is actually a clever booked match that is pretty decent for Sgt Slaughter 1991 standards, besides the long rest holds and a pretty bad pace behind it. Using Savage interference to get the title off the Warrior was a smart move IMO. That match of course set up one of the most underrated matches in Wrestlemania history : Hogan vs Slaughter. The dynamic of this match that makes it for me is this ; What we are witnessing in this match is SUPERHOGAN ... Only he's more motivated than ever and somewhat impervious to pain now. The whole breaking the Camel Clutch pt. 2 was awesome.

The Hogan-Taker 91 series was very... Bleh. I found both to be slow, HOGAN PACED contests with lots of basic action and a few decent spots. The ending to the Survivor series match really pissed me off, while I actually kind of liked the ending to the Tuesday in Texas match because it basically told the story that Taker can't be dominated or decisively BEATEN, he needs to be CAUGHT to lose, and I feel that this carries on throughout different matches in his career (NWO 06 vs Angle to be specific).

Don't worry... Things would get ALOT better in the coming years.

Me too. Anybody else doing it would make it look goofy but Brock makes it look awesome because he's awesome. His smirks are win too.

Trips going after the stomach was indeed him smelling blood. Too bad he didn't figure it out before he got his ass handed to him lol.

I loved HHH quote about Brock.

Miz/Swagger vs Mysterio/Riley - Raw 6/27/11 - Tornado Tag

Why the FUCK don't we see tornado tags more often? This match owns and I'm gonna keep it as my TV MOTY for 2011. Mysterio is the still the top guy in the company when it comes to match quality, imo. He really never fails to disappoint. I'm not a big fan of Miz or Riley at all but they manage to impress. And I feel Swagger's work has declined since '09 but still a good performance on his behalf. Match is full of own! ***3/4

Best TV matches of the last 5 years...

2012 - Punk/Henry April 2nd
2011 - Swagger/Miz vs Mysterio/Riley June 27th (Cena/Mysterio honorable mention)
2010 - Edge/Jericho/Orton July? (Having trouble thinking of one at the moment) (Punk/Mysterio from earlier that year works too)
2009 - Punk/Hardy Steel Cage (September, I believe. Maybe late August)
2008 - HBK/Hardy or Hardy/Jericho

When was Morrison/Mysterio for the IC title on SD? Was that 2009 or 2010?
