Professional wrestling is one of the greatest forms of entertainment. I had been a huge wrestling supporter during WWF’s “Rock ‘n’ Wrestling Connection” era of the 1980s, NWA/WCW of the early 1990s, The Monday Night Wars, and “The Attitude Era” of the late 1990s to the new millennium. During those twenty years, it was a great time to be a wrestling fan. I witnessed so many classic matches and the memories are deeply entrenched in my head. Most of the wrestling matches I saw were some of the best wrestling action ever.
I present my personal Top 25 Greatest Matches in professional wrestling history. They are classic matches from the WWE and NWA/WCW. I enjoyed watching them repeatedly. I aspired to become a professional wrestler because of the action and athleticism the wrestlers displayed during that time. Too bad, wrestling fans of today do not see wrestling like this anymore.
1. Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat (WrestleMania III) was arguably the greatest match in WWE history. It was a masterpiece in front of 93, 173 attendees at the Pontiac Silverdome Arena. “Macho Man” Randy Savage and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat were two of the most athletic performers in the WWE at the time. They stole the show with a brilliant performance. It was fast-paced, exciting, and very entertaining to watch. In the end, Ricky Steamboat rolled up Randy Savage and won the WWE Intercontinental Championship. It defined Ricky Steamboat as a true superstar!
2. Mr. Perfect vs. Bret Hart (SummerSlam ’91) was another great match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. It was Perfection versus Excellence. These two great technical wrestlers delivered a grand performance. Mr. Perfect had a bad back and he still managed to outperform 99% of the top stars in the WWE on that night. In the end, Bret Hart defeated Mr. Perfect to win his first Intercontinental Championship.
3. The Steiner Brothers vs. Sting & Lex Luger (SuperBrawl) was my favorite tag team championship match of all-time. This match intrigued me because the four of them were best friends and top stars in WCW. When they collided, it was an instant classic! Their match consisted of high-risk moves, power moves, and action, which never fail to excite me. In the end, The Steiner Brothers defeated Sting & Lex Luger to retain the WCW World Tag Team Championships.
