Great American Bash 1990???  As I said in my review of it: “The match isn’t great and it’s certainly not their best.”


This is wrong on SO many levels.  Some of these matches weren’t even the best matches on their own shows.  Also, this is leaving out a ton of great stuff from the 80’s for absolutely no apparent reason.  They were still in the NWA for the 1990 Bash so it can’t be that.

    I started writing up a few picks while saying “I don’t do top ten’s” and about ten minutes later, I had a top fifteen. I’ll post it later tonight.

    Personally I think the Hogan vs Flair cage match from Halloween Havoc was better than the Bash at the Beach encounter. And while WWE might want to act like Chris Benoit never existed, the fact is that Benoit had several matches that should be on the list. Benoit vs Bret, Benoit vs Jericho, Benoit vs Raven, Benoit vs DDP, etc. And how is there not one Sting vs Vader match on there?

    Another and arguably the most glaring omission is the match that became the foundation for the most lucrative time in WCW history: The Outsiders & The Third Man (revealed later to be Hulk Hogan) vs Randy Savage, Lex Luger and Sting.
