Kevin Owens Vs. John Cena

Event: WWE Elimination Chamber 2015

After watching this, you’ll never look at big guys in wrestling the same way. The uninformed will find out that many wrestlers are faster, stronger, and more agile than they look and Kevin Owens epitomizes that.

The best part is this match was beyond just being Kevin Owens’ first WWE PPV / premium live event. He got to do it in front of his son live and against his kid’s favorite wrestler, John Cena. And what a show these two men produced!

Shawn Michaels vs. Kurt Angle

Event: WrestleMania 21

Shawn Michael is the greatest WrestleMania performer of all time. Kurt Angle could be the best wrestler ever. Combine the two at the biggest wrestling stage and you get perfection.

The pair finally faced off at WrestleMania 21 in what may have been the 2005 match of the year. Watch as Shawn Michaels defies everything someone his age should do. You’ll also get an example of the magnificence that is Kurt Angle.

“Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. Triple H: 3 Stages of Hell

Event: No Way Out 2001

This match was accurately named 3 Stages of Hell. Triple H and Stone Cold Steve Austin put each other through Hell in each of the three bouts. There were a lot of punches, kicks, and suplexes throughout, but that didn’t take away from the match. The hatred these two had for each other was on display. Add Jim Ross’ commentary and it’s easy to follow this emotionally driven match.
