Best Wrestlemania matches at Paste Magazine

Scott,

Would love for the blog regulars to come tell us how awful our picks are for this list of the best Wrestlemania matches. I lobbied hard for the WM 27 8-man but no dice.

​It's no Bret-Austin, but it's close.  No love for Lawler v. Cole either?  COME ON.​

  1. Yeah he wrote and drew for his first run and then when he came back for Born Again he had the guy who drew Year One doing art. Mazuchelli I think.

  2. Daredevil is so underrated. There's just something about him that is big time without being overexposed or overprocessed.

    He's the Rush of comics!

    Were you super into college sports before the job?

  7. I edited a game from last month today where the last 45 seconds took 15 minutes to play out. And people complain about baseball's pace?

    ReplyDelete
  8. One or two issues before the last one, where Captain America shut the team down for sucking. :) Which led to Force Works... ugh.

    Plus , that Mockingbird was later ret conned to be a Skrull. So it goes. :)

  9. I think it's to subtley use your shoulder.

  10. Not really, had just a casual knowledge but never really got huge into it. But being immersed in it every day has definitely sparked my interest in it almost as much as the pros now.

  11. on the network.. watcha watching?

  12. Anybody know why WWE changed Ambrose's Dirty Deeds from the headlock driver to the DDT?

    Think basically everyone is basketballing tonight

  14. Oy. I read so much Marvel stuff during that time that I didn't retain any of it.

    Force Works is familiar, but only in the sense of "oh yeah, it was a thing"

  15. Judgment Day 2008, but I'm about to switch to the local news

    Ordered the radio. As my brother said when I told him about it "Oh good, that's what you needed, another endless rabbit hole. Now when you manage to get bored by the internet, you have a whole separate internet to waste time on. Fucking wonderful."

    Lol, he was not pleased. I suspect Feyonce will not be either, especially since we're saving for a wedding and I just blew $300 on a whim hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't know why they wouldn't pair him up with Orton or Bryan, assuming Lesnar remains a heel. They had planned to go with Bryan/Lesnar at Summer Slam last year and it is still an appealing match (which Lesnar will win, unfortunately). And Orton is a guy who is also in need of a fresh opponent who would be believable in a match against Lesnar. I imagine we'll get another Cena match at some point since no one is asking for it. I also wouldn't be surprised to see Lesnar have another contest with Rollins and/or Reigns. But yeah, the Rock is the best bet of all, whether we like it or not.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah, but you'll be able to communicate with those Soviet military dudes still under the mountain who've been sending messages asking if it's OK to go ahead and come out now

    ReplyDelete
  20. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:14 PM

    Yeah I can basically see myself making a call sign and hamming every night for the foreseeable future, I used to love doing it as a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Not a bad list all in all. Gotta lose Flair/Shawn but otherwise that's a pretty solid top 11.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The headlock driver looked like shit more than half the time

    ReplyDelete
  23. Windows automatic updates: The greatest thing of all time or just the best trend in the last 100 years? I'll need my computer to restart and go through a bunch of updates right when I try to use it a few more times to really make up my mind.

  24. Xavier choked that game hard but Matt Stainbrook definitely goes down as a legendary college basketball goofy white guy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Sabres defenseman Mike Weber struggled to gather his thoughts after watching his home fans cheer Arizona's game-winning goal in overtime.

    "I've never been a part of that," Weber said. "Whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, I guess. But this is a whole new low right now."

    Sam Gagner scored 56 seconds into overtime to lift the Coyotes to a 4-3 win Thursday night, earning cheers from last-place Buffalo's fans hoping to get the No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Draft.

    "I've always spoken extremely high of our fans," he said. "I don't even know if disappointed is the word.

    "They scored the first one, our fans are cheering. Late penalty, they cheer. They cheer when they score to win the game. I don't even know what to say. It's extremely frustrating for us."

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is fucking hysterical.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I don't know much about hockey, but haven't the Sabres been shitty for years?

    ReplyDelete
  28. That was part of why I went back to Apple for my laptop. Yeah it's overpriced, but I'm lazy and impatient.

  29. They had that really bad ass goalie for awhile but maybe.

  30. They were in the Atlanta Hawks' No Man's Land for some years.

  35. Sometimes watching wrestling can totally put me to sleep, and not just based on the quality of show. It's weird. Some other people on here were saying they had same issue sometimes as well. Also I'm a big fan of that valerian tea shit. It works pretty well.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Wait what did you get???

    ReplyDelete
  37. So valerian tea works if you can't sleep? I've been having trouble the past couple of weeks.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've been having trouble the last 36.5 years.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It's funny hearing Bischoff shit all over Raw while he airs a Guerrero vs Benoit match live on nitro. Yet somehow the IWC always had him as a bad guy at the time (myself included). He was basically one of the best things to happen to the iwc in some ways.

    ReplyDelete
  40. To continue the comic talk down below, I surprisingly enjoyed Ann Nocenti's Daredevil run. It's not highly praised but it was really fun and JRJR's Art was top notch.

    ReplyDelete
  41. How much do you get a night?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Makes sense actually. For me the key is to somehow shut my brain off... and just mindlessly watching TV helps a lot of the time... I can see where Spring Stampede '94 or some shit would work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. It's definitely not a total miracle drug but it is a natural sedative and it works pretty well. I prefer it to chamomile tea.

    ReplyDelete
  44. 3 - 4 on a good night

    ReplyDelete
  45. Are you allowed to drink herbal tea and still retain your penis?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm watching Nitro #7 and Mongo has dropped some real gems on this show already and i'm only 10 minutes in.

    ReplyDelete
  47. No naps or anything?

    ReplyDelete
  48. I often find I feel better running on 4-5 hours sleep than I do off 8-9.

    ReplyDelete
  49. To show Heenan still had it in 95: Mongo has that stupid mini dog with him. Heenan goes, "Turn that tranantula around." Mongo turns it around and Heenan goes "Oh so that's where you put the batteries!"

  50. Nope. I am basically Hogan and the sandman (the guy that puts you to sleep not the ECW guy) is Savage... he just never wins.

  51. Welcome welcome welcome! WrestleMania weekend coming up! How ya feeling?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Keeps you nice and slim so it might add an inch!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Decent. Accomplished a lot today. Would like to sleep but its being a cunt tonight.

  54. To use an updated analogy you are John Cena and sleep is everyone else on the roster.

  56. I was a WWF loyalist in 1995 when Nitro started so I didn't see this at the time but I would have fucking lost my mind seeing this Benoit vs Eddie match when I was 13. This is insane shit.

  57. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:36 PM

    The Great War....this channel is just too awesome for words

  58. I'm not breaking any news on scott keiths blog when I say that a Eddie vs Benoit match is unbelievable but Guerrero just flawlessly countered a flying cross body into a tornado DDT. Amazing.

    What's up man, jesus you're up late

    ReplyDelete
  60. Your feud with sleep is as one-sided as Jericho/Greenburg.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Yeah tell me about it. One of those nights tonight. What's up with you?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:37 PM

    To answer your question fro below, I blew $300 on a shortwave radio set up so I can listen to spy stations out of Russia.

    And no that's not a joke.

    ReplyDelete
  63. It's rare to be watching a match and be happy for the guys when they go to a rest spot but this is one of those times.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Can you speak any Russian?

    ReplyDelete
  65. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:38 PM

    Sick with pnuemonia, which is fucking great because I get to skip both jobs for four days and lay around playing Civ

    But the antiobiotics are weirding me out, sometimes I'll be super hyper like right now, in about an hour I'll probably pass out comatose for another few hours, then I'll wake up hyper again

    ReplyDelete
  66. That's less than optimal.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:39 PM

    Not a lick. Well, here's the kicker, these stations don't really broadcast anything but white noise, they only pop in with random numbers or words every few months, or even every few years.

    I'm far, far down a rabbit hole of radio nerdom.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Watching WM19. Just put a clock on Booker-HHH from pedigree to pin. 25 seconds. Also Hunter's hair when not wetted down was godawful. He looked like juiced up Spinal Tap.

    ReplyDelete
  69. That's so weird. So have you heard them say anything yet?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:40 PM

    Yeah, they're pretty strong pills and I go to the doctor like once every 5 years, my systems not good with antibiotics I guess, I don't know.

    Oh and I ate an entire box of gushers today so that was something.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:40 PM

    Only on the youtube videos I watched for 8 hours yesterday, I barely ordered the radio today it should be here next week sometime.

    Has anyone ever seen Survivor Series Showdown '89? It was a special Prime Time episode to hype Survivor Series. It had The Ultimate Warrior vs. Tully Blanchard in a match that I had no idea ever occurred.

    ReplyDelete
  73. "I'll tell you what. If you're not a WCW fan after watching this match then you're dumber than dirt."

  74. Dude put that shit up on your channel!!!

  75. I started it last night and a little more today, good find on your part sir.

  76. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 26, 2015 at 11:42 PM

    If I can ever find it. I was seriously considering doing "best of" each show rather than go for chronological viewing. That's a little painstaking.

  80. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:43 PM

    That's my plan, but I won't really have the set up to record or anything, I figure I'll have it on when I'm writing, and when I'm sitting around the garage smoking and stuff

    And when I'm not doing that I can Ham with local dorks I guess (local meaning somewhere on this continent)

  81. Yuck. I hate all gummy based candy.

    Motherfucker, I found it.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hell yeah, Tully vs Warrior...how can you not be intrigued?

    ReplyDelete
  85. ...the Norm greeting doesn't really make it easy to continue the conversation... but I feel like it would be awesome to have all your friends joyfully shout your name every time they see you so I am sticking with it.

    Tito vs. Boss Man


    Fucking Demolition Smash vs. Ted DiBiase.

  87. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:45 PM

    When I went to the doctor this morning they randomly made me take a depression test for some reason. "Do you ever feel like hurting yourself? Wtf?"

    But one of the questions was: "Do you ever feel like you don't get enough sleep?" I just lulled at the lady.

  88. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 26, 2015 at 11:45 PM

    I would enjoy people greeting me in said fashion when I entered a room.

  90. kbwrestlingreviewsMarch 26, 2015 at 11:46 PM

    The guy I was next to at the show said he had his money's worth before HHH came out. I had trouble disagreeing.

  91. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 26, 2015 at 11:47 PM

    This particular file I found also contains the 1990 version, where we get Marty Jannetty vs. Rick Martel. Motherfucker, that match has to rock.

    ReplyDelete
  92. People ask why some wrestlers wet down their hair. 2003 Triple H is why.

    ReplyDelete
  93. It's a fine list with a couple of notable omissions. But this is pretty tough to narrow down. For now I'll go:
    1. Chris Benoit vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels (XX)
    2. Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels (XXV)
    3. Bret Hart vs. Steve Austin (XIII)
    4. Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat (III)
    5. Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart (X)
    6. Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan (XXX)
    7. Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon (X)
    8. Steve Austin vs. The Rock (XVII)
    9. Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock (XVIII)
    10. Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage (V)
    11. Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels (XXIV)


    Really tough to separate some of these from the likes of Hogan/Warrior, Savage/Warrior, Hart/Michaels, the TLC matches, and Taker/Michaels 2.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:50 PM

    This Russian station in particular has been blasting for 40+ years and will just buzz....buzz...buzz....for months then pop in with a Russian voice saying "1, 7, 9, 3, 0, 0, 0, 1, Magda, Helene, Ivan, Ivan, Magda" and then back to buzzing sounds for six months....

    It's basically utterly horrifying to me

    ReplyDelete
  95. It's awakening the sleepers

    ReplyDelete
  96. Is that the Winter Soldier's radio station?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:52 PM

    The scary thing is, it kind of is. Governments all over the place use this system for one-way communication, and since it's shortwave the operative can be anywhere in the world.

    There's a station that blasts out of New Mexico that does white noise for months, then will pop in with 5 seconds of data (think modem noise) followed by a clip of Yosemite Sam saying "Varmints!" then it goes back to white noise for a year....disturbing as fuck

    ReplyDelete
  98. I thought the plan was that they'd have Brock keep the belt and continue being a lazy fuck who doesn't appear weekly and basically spend the rest of the year desperately trying to rehab the IC and US belts via putting them on Cena and Bryan and having the announcers shill them as being "better" than the World title, since Bryan and Cena defend them constantly whereas with Brock, we only get a title defense every three months as well as solve the additional issue of giving Bryan something important to do to shut people up and moving Cena down the card via having him being saddled with the task of making the US title more desirable than the world title?

    Already listened to it. I 'm not kidding when Shelton/Theo/Freddy Boom Boom clued me into this (after I showed him the Max Hedroom video from Chicago in the 80's) I literally spent a full fucking eight hours yesterday researching this shit.

    I need serious help over here.

  101. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 26, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    Ohhhhhh yeah, the Max Headroom thing with the feed interrupting some sports broadcast. I've seen that. Crazy shit.

  102. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    Somehow this one isn't as disturbing to me as the Lincolnshire Poacher station, that one really freaks me out

  103. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 26, 2015 at 11:57 PM

    He interrupted a sports broadcast first but couldn't master WGN's signal that well, then later that night went with a full 2 minutes interruption during a Doctor Who episode on some other station...WTTN or something I think

    ReplyDelete
  104. Does anybody not know the best WrestleMania matches? Every year it's a debate between the same ones everybody loves.

    In any case: Hart/Austin is the most important. Austin/Rock X-7 is the hottest. HBK/Angle is the technical best. HBK/Taker I is the spectacle best.

    ReplyDelete
  105. So that's why Bret's so popular on the internet... http://prowrestling.wikia.com/wiki/File:Wwf1995-10b.jpg

    This one's my favorite by far, "The Lincolnshire Poacher Station" named after the song played to fill space between messages. (message starts at about 50 seconds in)

    Just an obscure shortwave frequency. I believe the Swedish Rhapsody station is believed to come somewhere out of north africa.

  125. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:06 AM

    I posted a link up top, it's the same idea. Just weird white noise (in this case bars from a song) to fill up time for MONTHS until they broadcast a message to....whoever that message is intended for

    Yeah my fascination with this led Shelton to say I was eventually going to start listening for aliens.

    But I don't have to do that nonsense. I can listen to this. This shit is confusingly, horrifyingly REAL.

  132. Is it the numbers or the music that isn't supposed to be there?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Stranger in the AlpsMarch 27, 2015 at 12:09 AM

    It wouldn't be as creepy if someone used, say, Stone Cold's theme in between messages.

  134. God is there anything less sexy than old british broads voice?

  135. We need to hack into one and play random wrestling promos.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:10 AM

    They're both supposed to be there. The music just sort of holds the stations place on the band until a message is needed to be sent out.

    Basically the theory is, if you were a spy or whatever in another country, you'd listen to this station every day at a set time, usually just to the music over and over for the allotted time you're supposed to listen. Every once in awhile, there would actually come a message that you would decode with your one-time pad. The numbers are tied to a specific code that is only used one time then destroyed.

    It's one-way communication, impossible for the people in the host country to crack OR figure out who is listening.

    Most other countries made their one-time pads out of rice paper so the agent could easily destroy it.

    The CIA went one better, we put the codes on strips of gum so they could be reliably destroyed instantaneously.

    Allegedly there's a station in western China that will play music and then start up with:

    "Welcome! Here is your message! 1, 6, 9, whatever Thank you! Please enjoy decoding your message!" and then back to random beeps....

    This shit is equal parts fascinating and mortifying.

    Oh, duh. The music is used to tune by the spy. If it was just dead air he'd never know if he was on the right station before the message started, could easily miss it especially at a distance.

  142. Kevin Sullivan is doing a Bray Wyatt promo 20 years earlier. I don't know how people don't see the similarities?

  143. There had to be one guy that was just able to tune into it and stuck around for the music.

    The scariest thing? They triangulated the russia station, the buzzer station to a certain spot outside of Moscow. When that news made it to the internet....Russia moved the site.

    So whatever this is, it's still of some use to somebody.

  146. wow that is crazy, i wonder how many of these stations there are. Probably tons.

  147. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:20 AM

    At least 200, there's a whole group of people (that I will probably join soon because my nerd for this is already off the charts) that tracks them and tries to record every voice message they can

  148. wow that's crazy. This is from the comments section

    Evidently the Cubans are going to a so-called "Hybred" transmission. It consists of a female counting groups of numbers that indicate the six intended recipients followed by encrypted digital transmissions to one of each of the six intended recipients called out. Digital signal is most likely pdf type files that are encrypted and transferred over the radio.

    It's just so goddamn fascinating. Like, it can never really be broken because there's no way to track who is listening to a signal, only who is generating it.

    I just love, and I mean that literally, I deeply deeply love this idea that in the information era the best way to pass information is still via goddamned ham radio lol

  151. Sting is about to tag up with Flair against Pillman and AA. This will probably go well for Sting.

    I hope Hunter kills him on Sunday.

  153. I was a little stinger. I always loved WCW because it was on for two hours and I couldn't get enough Sting as a little kid. I think you just had to be a fan of surfer sting to get it. Otherwise he might kind of seem like a guy who sucks. Oddly enough I never really liked crow Sting. I liked surfer dude fun loving sting.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Sting being WCW US champ in 95 is kind of like Bryan going for the IC belt now, if Dusty had shit, pissed, jizzed and puked on the belt on TV.

  155. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:30 AM

    I remember catching him on random Clashes but I was always a WWF kid. By the time I paid any attention he was already in the rafters, and that comeback was so lame, and the Bret part of it was so lame.

    And after that really the only I've seen of him has been TNALOL clips like him hitting his head or flipping off Jeff Hardy.

    I'd have been excited about this in 2003, or 2005.

    ReplyDelete
  156. I haven't really watched but it seems like it's had the best build at least. But he had cool face paint and wore crazy neon so you had to love in the day. The fact that they are running a 57 year old dude in the biggest built feud of year is pretty pathetic but I might still watch it live if I can.

  157. I like Mongo going for some topical political humor.

  158. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:34 AM

    I'm sick and off work so I'm sure I'll watch live. The lack of stakes in that match is weird, there's not really a reason to care outside of it being Sting.

    I'm sort of hoping Reigns still wins just to see people flip in the thread, that probably makes me a bad person but whatever.

  159. Did Art Vandelay get a new girlfriend or something? How is he not in here to watch wrestling anymore?

  160. Mister CrestleManiaMarch 27, 2015 at 12:35 AM

    He doesn't have the Network right now, I think he's re-upping Saturday to get the May PPV too

    ReplyDelete
  161. The only entertaining part of the show will be the crowd shitting all over Reigns so I definitely will be sad if they put Lesnar over.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Every "potential" opponent list is the same. Your Bryans, Zigglers, Ambroses, Cesaros.. the usual jobber parade.

    ReplyDelete
  163. What a fucking cheapskate!!! That motherfucker who loves watching old wrestling doesn't have the network??? Come on now Art Vandelay. Poor form dude, its 10 bucks. You could be watching Nitro right now dude.

    College man. Although he's a straightedge so what the fuck....he should have $10

    Hell if I was straightedge in college I probably would've graduated at a profit

  166. Dude I'm actually just about to start Nitro #9. You might have to go into 1995 to find it depending on what your using to watch.

    Food? I guess?

    I don't know. I don't know what a straightedge does for anything.

    What happens when you get bored? Or tired? Or too hyper? Or with friends? Or at a game? Or when you're awake?

    ReplyDelete
  172. So really anything is possible. They were putting on some bad ass wrestling

  173. I can tell there must be another long Benoit match on here because there is a huge break in the chapter stamps

  177. Yeah dude he popped up on an earlier episode and I had no clue who he was. Guess he still wrestles today. I have no idea why Col Parker is managing him though lol

    Lanny said on Jericho he would keep a big book of every costume and where it was worn to make sure he never came through the same town in the same tights twice in a row. He had this book for DECADES apparently.
