Match of the Day
« on: January 19, 2009, 08:37:10 AM »
I'm going to try to post a new classic match every day. This is one of my favorites of the recent era. TLC 2 at Wrestlemania 17

Good shit, man. Those TLC matches were insane. And of course, Savage vs Steamboat, classic stuff!
HAHA, RON.....

Tbh, I always thought Savage v. Ricky was a little overrated. An awesome match, but not the best all time like some would call it. I know people like it though, so that's why i put it up.

I think it was great for it's time. Remember, at that time all the big stiffs were top of the card (Hogan, Andre, and the like). So to see these two guys do arial moves, was pretty impressive back them.


EDIT:

BTW, I would NEVER call this the best match of all time. No way. It might make a top 100 list....
HAHA, RON.....

I remember seeing a great match between Chris Benoit and Dean Malenko at a WCW event in 1996.

Ric Flair v Terry Funk I Quit Match 1989. Very "hardcore" for its time.

Now this was a hell of a match.  The one where the arena was empty was good too and hard to do.
