Is there a big match where you felt the wrong guy won - for whatever reason?

For starters, I thought Randy Orton should have won his Wrestlemania match with the Undertaker. If there was any WM match that UT should have lost, this was the one.

Others.

Goldberg over Nash at Starrcade. This was the match that effectively killed the golden goose for WCW.

Flair over Michaels at WM. Michaels winning was definitely the better way to go, but I think most fans wanted to see Flair go out a winner.

Hogan over Bockwinkel that gets reversed after Hogan walks out with the belt held high...maybe I'm wrong, but if they leave that alone, the AWA doesn't shit the bed and Hogan doesn't go to the WWF.

Flair over Michaels was a good choice. I know doing he honors in your final match is a time honored tradition right up there with shitting in someones gym bag and putting anti-freeze in their asthma inhaler but the loss should be to put over a younger guy so they get the rub. Boy Toy certainly didn't need the rub.

Another pair of matches I would have changed was Diesel's MSG squash winning the strap from Backlund in 1994. No reason at all for that kind of win. They should have kept the belt on Bobby until at least the Royal Rumble and then if they wanted to put it on Nash do it then. But make it a competitive match.

Backlund beating Billy Graham in 1978 to win the WWWF title. I'm of the school of thought that would have turned Graham face and kept him on top until 1980.

Warrior over Hogan. Pretty obvious in hindsight that Warrior was not the guy to take the belt. There were plenty of other guys at or near the top that could've took it from him.

Nash over Goldberg is also there, which hopefully would have gotten rid of the finger-poke of doom the next night.

Iron Sheik over Backlund.:D

You knew I was gonna say that, right? Seriously, I'd have gone with Masked Superstar for a while and it would have been much more believable to me.

I disagree. The time was right for Warrior, he was more over than anyone, but it was a transitional period after the last several years of expansion and cable proliferation. Anyone would have struggled right then, but I think Warrior was the best choice.


I think Hogan beating Bock is the biggest one I can think of.

I would have never made Ron Garvin the champ in 87, either. Barry Windham probably would have been the best choice for that, though there were so many problems taking shape with the company at that time that it probably didn't matter than much.

You really think Warrior was the best choice to carry the belt and be called upon to have decent matches night in and night in a company whose roster included Jake Roberts, Randy Savage, Ted Dibiase and Curt Hennig?

In the Miz's infamous words.. Really?  Really? Really?

Yes, the Warrior vs. Hogan spectacle was very well done. I give them that, but in the months after that it was like a loud fart in church as the fans realized their new champion was not near Hogan's stature.

They did a great job of building it to get it on Warrior and then Warrior couldn't carry the load. His shoulders weren't broad enough.

I would have loved to have seen the Funker beat Flair for the WCW belt upon Fliars return and have a short yet extremely violent second title reign.

Garvin over Flair Starrcade, but have Flair get it back like at Bunkhouse Stampede 88 ppv. I know it was done for Flair to win again at Starrcade.

Windham over Flair Crockett Cup 87

Luger over Flair Bash 88 or Starrcade 88

Yes, Road Warriors over Tully/Arn Starrade 87

Luger and Dusty Starrcade, Dusty is/was too old for another belt by then. Should have had a Dusty finish and either Luger win or belt held up for tournament.

WrestleMania IV Strike Force Demolition. They didnt have belts long enough.

Also Tito should not have had to job EVERY WRESTLEMANIA!

LMAO, should have known this was coming...

For one Tito, didn't job in EVERY Mania... He beat the Masked Executioner :P

Second, Demolition were ready for the belts, Tito should consider himself lucky... If Tom Zenk hadn't quit WWF in '87 he wouldn't even have held the tag titles or been pushed, Tito was already playing job boy before Strike Force (and for the most part after as well).

ARRIBA from the Burrito State...

I think I woulda kept Sting as Champion instead of putting the belt back on Flair in January 91. I know he needed heels to work with, but I think he had more to give. That and the fact that Flair took off with the belt that summer.
