vs Warrior is ***** for me. Just adored it
Savage vs Warrior. I enjoyed it more for the entertainment aspect than the actual Wrestling. It's still a solid ****3/4 for me. The 5 elbow drops were just epic, and having Warrior kick out of them added to the entertainment of it. Same goes for Savage kicking out of Warrior's Splash, something I believe only Hogan had done.

I legit thought first time I watched it that Warrior was walking away from the match.

Re: What is the best match of all-time?

Either Austin/Hart from Mania 13 or Austin/Rock from Mania 17. If I had to pick one I'd say Austin/Rock is the best match of all time but it's damn close.

Austin vs Hart featured the birth of the most successful character of all time in a match that is perfect in every way from start to finish.

Austin vs Rock is also a perfect match between the two biggest stars in wrestling history and includes the most shocking heel turn of all time.


By the way the Savage/Steamboat match being under/overrrated debate is getting very old very quickly.

Sorry, didn't know it had been debated before. I was just voicing my opinion.

Besides, it doesn't matter. Greatest Match of All Time:

Warrior/Helmsley, Wrestlemania XII.

EPIC.

Re: What is the best match of all-time?

Ultimate Warrior vs Hulk Hogan (unbelievable hype and energy in this match) deserves a mention in this thread.

But Bret Hart vs Stone Cold - WM 13 right after Bret Hart vs HBK WM 12 - What a tragedy that Bret went to WCW..... would have had some incredible matches and been known as Mr. Wrestlemania. vs Owen Hart WM 10, vs Roddy Piper WM 8.

Re: What is the best match of all-time?

Royal Rumble 2003 - Angle vs Benoit.

The backstory as simple as you like. The 2 best wrestlers at that point, both ridiculously evenly matched. No interferences at all and over 20 minutes of pure wrestling for the biggest prize in wrestling. 3 years of rivalry over who was better and all the matches they had whether they be submission matches or ladder matches came down to this. Hard to see which as a wrestling spectacle could top this ...



Our Saviour!


Simply waiting for Aries and Roode to end up with all the gold ...

The Danielson/McGuiness match where they unified the pure title and ROH world title, that was perfect imho.

Bret Vs. Austin WM 13 by a LANDSLIDE. Close second would be Hart/Hart at WM 10 or Hart/Perfect SS 91.

Re: What is the best match of all-time?

Actually Bret vs. Perfect/Owen/Austin/Bulldog/HBK could all be considered the best in WWE history. And the funny thing is he had 5 star matches with all these guys atleast on separate occasions.

Austin: SS 96/WM 13
HBK: WM 12/SS 92
Perfect: SS91/KOTR 93
Bulldog: SS 92/ IYH 95
Owen: WM 10/ SS 94

I also agree with whoever said Bret would have been Mr. Wrestlemania had he not left. By WM 13 he had 3 of the greatest matches of all time at the event and a 4 plus star match with piper. Just his matches with Owen/Austin and HBK could still make him arguably Mr. WM.
