Re: What is the "BIGGEST" Championship match WWE has ever gave away on free televisio

It wasn't a championship match but giving away Jericho v Undertaker on Smackdown for free in 09 after keeping both guys from each other for over a decade was a huge blown opportunity IMO.

I would say Mysterio/Cena from RAW last year. Never before happened and a rare face vs. face match for the WWE Title. I think they should have waited and did it at Summerslam or even made it a 3 way with CM Punk.

personal opinions differ...I think that match was absolutely terrible.
I don't think it was a great match either but the question is what is the biggest match, not the best.

I always thought that RVD/Edge/Cena on RAW in '06 was pretty big, and it was also a solid contest. But definetly between Austin/'Taker '99 or Angle/Brock Ironman(Y)

The 60-minute Iron Man match with Angle vs. Lesnar for the WWE Championship on SmackDown 2003. Would've said Cena vs. Michaels on Raw 2007, but it wasn't for the title.

Not sure how to post videos, but I came across a rather HUGE WWE Title match that didn't take place on PPV.

Don't know the year but it was back when Rock was champion. He faced Triple H and Brock Lesnar in a triple threat for the Undisputed Championship at a special event in Australia.

Seems like that would have been a big time PPV match.

That was a show taped for DVD release called Global Warning Tour Melbourne. Would have loved to have seen that on a big 4 PPV.


Rock vs Mankind EAM, Halftime SuperBowl 99
Forgot about that one - HUGE.
