With Wrestlemania being a little under two weeks away and the excitement reaching fever pitch I have decided to share My personal favourite top 20 matches, now as any wrestling fan things I look for in a match tend to change on a regular basis and no doubt there will be some matches missing that many people consider classics, feel free to comment and enjoy as i countdown over the next week or so
20 Roddy Piper vs Bret Hart Wrestlemania 8
Now this match Match is a true rarity by WWE standards as it was simply over a Title , no crazy angle needed or silly backstory. Another rarity about this being on a wrestlemania card was the fact it was two fan favourites going at it.
As you would expect in the match Hart focused on mat skills where as Piper used his brawling background to gain much of the upper hand in the match even busting open Hart which was uncommon back in 1992,Piper gained the upper hand and at one point even looks to turn heel using the ring bell on the hitman only to change his mind, the match climaxs with Piper using his trademark sleeper only for Bret to reverse the hold into a pin fall, kicking back back from the top turnbuckle and rolling up on top of piper.
The Match finishes on high with Piper shaking hands with the Hitman and giving him the belt in what was almost certainly the best match from the Hot rods wwe career
