But if you include all matches with any barbed wire involvement, that got toyed with a lot in the '90s, even if some of it was worked and rubber.

Also feel like Dory Funk, Sr. had some back in the day. 


I didn't say it was comprehensive. Just what I got from a Google search from one site. Feel free to add your own matches, and we can make a better list. 

The WCW match was Flair vs Hogan at Uncensored 99. I'll add that to the list. If I remember correctly, the wire there was a bait and switch, and never came into play in the match.

They had chicken-wire fence matches in Amarillo, but never barbed wire. I think a lot of the old-school "barbed wire" matches are just Chinese whispers where someone read "wire" and then assumed the rest.
