126. Team WCW (Roddy Piper, Diamond Dallas Page, The Warrior) vs. Team NWO Wolfpack (Kevin Nash, Lex Luger, Sting) vs. Team NWO Hollywood (Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Stevie Ray). (War Games Match for a Shot at the WCW Championship, WCW Fall Brawl 1998)

WarGames 2000 was an atrocity, a besmirchment on the very gimmick of War Games. Just when I thought I couldn’t scrape the barrel anymore, I watched the War Games match from 2000 (click here for my review). This one was the traditional, two cage set-up that War Games 2000 ignored in favour of three tiers of cages. But Fall Brawl 1998 version of War Games featured just as much nonsensical booking, lacklustre action, and unnecessary complications as War Games 2000.

Earlier on this week, I published a list of my Top 10 WrestleMania Main Events (click here to view it!). It’s WrestleMania 34 week, remember!

So here are my Top 10 Worst WrestleMania Main Events. Continue reading

Review: WWE Network’s 100 Best Matches To See Before You Die: #22 The Royal Rumble Match (WWE Title, WWE Royal Rumble 1992)

I’ve never enjoyed the Royal Rumble as a match. It’s all about the excitement of who comes next, the surprise entrants, and who will win. Yes, there may be a few memorable moments (the past few years, for example, have seen Kofi Kingston avoid elimination by innovative means). The final five minutes are always tense (unless Roman Reigns is involved…). But much of the match involves wrestlers attempting to lift other wrestlers over the top rope in unconvincing ways. I can only name a few Royal Rumble matches that I’d watch more than once. The Royal Rumble 2001 is one of them. #22, Royal Rumble 1992, is now another one. But does that mean it should be in the WWE Network#s 100 Best Matches…List?
