Everyone must have been a fan of the WWE at some point or the other and would have followed it passionately for a while.
The options for professional wrestling and lists are nearly limitless. The most prestigious lists, on the other hand, are limited to a few classified hierarchies. The list referring to the best wrestling encounter of history stands out as arguably the most significant of these hierarchies. In WWE lore, great fights are marked by well-written feuds, historical significance, excellent commentary, and flawless storytelling. These are the criteria used to choose each match on this list. This top five list covers decades and highlights some of WWE’s most iconic scenes and fight
5) Mick Foley vs The Undertaker (King Of The Ring 1998)
This was one of the matches of the decade back during the time
One of the iconic clips that helped define WWE’s most popular period in history is Mick Foley falling off a 16-foot jail through an announce table. The Undertaker’s longstanding feud with Mick Foley’s Mankind character resulted in a number of violent gimmick fights, however none were bigger or more spectacular than Taker and Mankind in Hell in a Cell’s second match. Foley’s fall from the top of the cage would not be his only perilous stunt, as the hardcore icon would later be chokeslammed through the top of the cell. Foley would eventually be chokeslammed on a slew of pushpins on way to the most agonizing defeat in WWE history.
4) Hulk Hogan Vs Andre The Giant (Wrestlemania III)
It is still unknown how Hulk Hogan managed to slam a giant like Andre
Despite not being a form-fitting classic wrestling bout, Hulk Hogan and Andre’s WrestleMania III battle delivered in the department of spectacle. The main event involving Andre and Hogan was among the most important and high-profile fights in WWE history. The match catapulted Hulkamania and WWE to unprecedented heights, ushering in a radical golden period of pro wrestling. Hulk Hogan’s slamming of Andre the Giant, who gets larger every year based on Hulk Hogan’s narrative, could be considered one of WrestleMania’s best moments. Hogan’s historic triumph over the late Giant paved the stage for WWE’s eventual prosperity, which continues to this day.
3) The Undertaker vs Triple H (Wrestlemania 28)
There was no denying why ‘Hell in a cell’ was considered to Undertaker’s playground
At Wrestlemania 28, this was the battle of the night. The much-anticipated Hell in the Cage match did not disappoint, providing fans with lots of intense action. For the majority of the first half of the fight, the Undertaker dominated. For the first five minutes of the bout, he bludgeoned Triple H with strong attacks to the face and upper body.Much of the action took place outside the ring as well, with chairs, steps, and sledgehammers, and the atmosphere was nothing short of fantastic. As Shawn Michaels was the special guest referee, it appeared that Triple H would be the one to beat the Undertaker and end the streak.
2) Royal Rumble Match (Royal Rumble 2006)
Rey is the perfect example of height doesn’t matter if you have the skill and ability to perform
Rey Myesterio unquestionably had one of the finest Royal Rumble triumphs in history. Rey began the 2006 Royal Rumble at number one, devoted his effort to the honor of his late friend Eddie Guerrero, and made it all the way to the end. Randy Orton lifted Rey on his shoulder to attempt to throw him out, but Rey hung on to the top rope. Rey eventually sat on Randy’s shoulders, resulting in a hurricanrana over the top to the floor. Orton did a fantastic bump there. With the victory, Rey gained the chance to compete for the World Championship.
1) The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels (Wrestlemania 25)
The ‘streak vs career’ match is still the greatest match of all time, undoubtedly
Wrestling fans of all ages have been clamoring for a showdown between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker at this point in their careers. Despite the fact that both living icons were nearing the end of their illustrious careers, each had masterfully tweaked their in-ring technique to be capable of adapting to today’s wrestling world. Nobody who witnessed the battle between the two Texas-born superstars at WrestleMania XXV in Houston will ever forget it. Michaels’ stomping out of the tombstone piledriver was described as “divine intervention” by commentator Michael Ross, which reminded viewers of Michaels’ religious upbringing in a match where he was battling a persona who emanates Hellish attributes. The match was highlighted by a series of nearfalls that put the Undertaker’s WrestleMania streak in serious jeopardy. The Undertaker would go on to win an instant classic, and popular demand prompted a repeat the following year, in which Michaels would fail to beat the Undertaker once more, effectively ending his career. The second match between Taker and Michaels was nearly as good as the first and, in many ways, tied for first place with Taker-Michaels I. However, the absence of iconic announcer Jim Ross in favour of an inadequate three-man booth comprised of Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, and Matt Striker detracted from the rematch, which was already hindered by the original’s unrivalled brilliance.
