    Theyd just rig that as well.

  • Mr. Wrestling

    How about letting a fan poll to decide what was the best matches of all time? Settle it once and for all instead of WWE deciding.

    WTF. That HBK vs Cena lasted one hour, better than Mania match they had because Shawn won, SCREW ALL YOU CENA HATERS, CAUSE HE DESERVES #1 SPOT

    STOP YOUR BITCHING MARKS. IT IS WHAT IT IS.

  • YES! 3X

    Sorry to break it to you guys but Cena vs. HBK deserves it’s #1 spot. Very few men can wrestle for 1 full hour and keep the crowd in the palm of their hands. I’ve been watching wrestling since the 90s and it was the best match I’ve ever seen on Raw. Jericho himself said that it was that match more than any other that made him want to come back.

  • Wellsy

    Cena gets 3 Top 10 matches? Really?

    The fact that they’ve completely downgraded the two World titles to below fighting Cena is making me close to giving up on wrestling after 20 years. Even Austin would have gotten stale after 7 years of main events.

    Basically, when CM Punk loses the title, and they still have Cena as the top guy above him, then I’ll pretty much call time in Raw as there won’t be anything worth watching.

  • Jefferson D’Arcy

    Not bad for a top 10. Before I even saw it, I was like “They GOTTA put Bret vs. Kid for the WWF title from 94 on there”. Glad to see it, and glad to see it listed so high. But seriously, in a top 10 in the HISTORY of RAW, not ONE match with Austin, but 3 with Cena? WWE, cut the shit already. Stop blowing Cena. You can pretend he’s the be all/end all but nobody buys it, and nobody will ever buy it.

    It’s sad, because you refused to build new stars so Cena and Orton can squash everyone and now you’ve painted yourself into a corner. Your top “star” is someone everyone is sick of, yet he’s still shoved down our throats. At least TNA took a chance on a guy like Roode, then a guy like Austin Aries. And it worked. It can’t always be about Cena. I know Punk’s got the strap, but honestly, you KNOW Cena’s gonna take it off him, or beat the guy who does. Recycled predictable boring bullshit.

  • good

    I love how wwe trys to brain wash it’s fans to forget the 90s that list is a massive fail census at number 1 is typical i’m supposed they didn’t find a way to bury wcw somehow

  • Legend Killer

    Cant believe Jeff Hardy vs Undertaker is 10 years old! That match has stuck in my memory more than most.

  • tktawab

    What about Benoit and Jericho vs. HHH and Stone Cold for the tag titles..It won’t get mentioned but that was a great match

  • mabry

    How about Bret vs Psycho Sid????, maybe not that good of a match itself, but it was really relevant to the Stone Cold vs Bret Hart rivalry, it was shocking how Bret lost the belt just a day after getting it… it should have been at least top 10…
    Owen vs Bulldog is a classic, too bad they both passed out Sniff!!…

  • this guy

    It’ll never get mentioned but I thought Chris Benoit vs Stone Cold Steve Austin was one of the best matches on Raw. Surprised Austin wasn’t on this list

  • nnac

    wasnt the tlc tag match from 2002 listed as #1 at the 10th anniversary show? now its not there at all…

  • misfit del rio

    Is there better matches out there? Yes. And lists are always going to be disputed. But to sit there and completly bash this match because it includes Cena disgusts me. Seriously get a life you marks and get over yourselfs. The fact is is that was an iron man match (if I’m not mistaken) and it was a hell of a match.

  • yofits

    NO! Chris Benoit vs Triple H iron man match on Raw should be number 1.
    Best match on Raw ever! Whilst Owen Hart vs. The British Bulldog: European Title tournament finals should be in the top 5.

    Also, why the hell isn’t Kurt Angle vs Ric Flair and HBK vs Shelton Benjamin on the list??? WTF Vince, you idiot!

  • Greatest one

    I am disgusted Cena is at #1. What a disrespect to every wrestler who paved the way for him.

  • SYM

    Alicia Foxx vs Melina was better than Cena vs HBK (no Disrespect to Shawn Michaels) honestly WWE needs to stop shoving One person (John Cena) down our throats. Idk about anyone else but I feel the #1 Match should have been Shelton Benjamin vs Shawn Michaels in the Gold Rush Tournament.
