There are a lot of candidates. It takes a lot of different things to make a wrestling show work, but ultimately it all comes down to the matches. Over the years, there have been countless wrestling matches to see, but only some of them are the kind that stand out above the rest. It takes something special to be a match that makes a difference, and now WWE is trying to figure out which did the most.
During this week’s edition of the Bump, the three hosts discussed the most important match in WWE history. The three matches discussed were Hulk Hogan and Mr. T. vs. Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper in the main event of WrestleMania 1, Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant in the main event of WrestleMania 3 and Hulk Hogan defeating the Iron Sheik to win his first WWE Title. The hosts then moved into a discussion of the matches which had the most influence on them as fans. These choices were their opinions rather than a definitive choice from WWE.
This was a heck of a discussion. Check out the talk, plus some of the options:
Opinion: There are endless options for a discussion like this and it really could go in a variety of ways. If nothing else, it is going to be highly generational, as a fan who came up in the 1980s is going to be heavily influenced by Hogan while someone ten years younger would probably pick someone like Bret Hart or Steve Austin. It is the kind of a debate that can go on forever, which makes for some interesting discussions.
