Best of both worlds. Later this month, WWE will present its annual Survivor Series event, featuring a series of champion vs. champion matches. While no titles are likely to be on the line, a lot of these matches might seem like they’re not as important as others. That hasn’t always been the case though, as some champion vs. champion matches have been huge. Cue the retrospective music.
WWE has released a new Top Ten list looking at Classic Champion vs. Champion matches in company history. Most of them are from more modern times though at least one is from older days. This is the second such list that WWE has put out recently, following a Top Five video posted on its Instagram page. The top three are the same and the other two are also included, but the Top Ten video has some extras in between.
Opinion: These things are often a lot of fun, but it helps when both titles are on the line. Otherwise, what’s the point in fighting? Bragging rights? Shouldn’t having a title be enough bragging rights in the first place? Anyway, they had a better selection here, but it’s kind of interesting that so many of these are from modern times. It’s rather telling to see how much differently titles are treated today than they were in previous eras.
Which of these is your favorite? What did WWE leave off the list? Let us know in the comments below.
