    The Perfect 10's - Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka (One Night Stand '05

    The Perfect 10's - Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka (One Night Stand '05

    In this episode of the The Perfect 10's, William is joined by Tom Franken from the Stranger Rings podcast, who chose Mike Awesome vs. Masato Tanaka from ECW's One Night Stand '05. Awesome and Tanaka have an incredible feud that spans many wrestling promotions, most famously ECW from 1998-1999. One Night Stand was part of WWE's reboot of ECW, and this match became a signature for the show, and for a brief moment didn't feel like the sanitized version of ECW that we get for the next few years.

    The Perfect 10's - Cactus Jack vs. Triple H (Royal Rumble 2000)

    The Perfect 10's - Cactus Jack vs. Triple H (Royal Rumble 2000)

    By the time the year 2000 rolled around, WWE was missing its top draw with Stone Cold Steve Austin due to injury. A new top heel was needed, and thus Triple H was put on the on-ramp to wrestling superstardom while also becoming the definitive incarnation of his character as The Game. But he needed a match that would make people believe he was more than just Shawn Michael's buddy. Mick Foley, despite the massive wear and tear absorbed by his body throughout his career, stepped up as Cactus Jack to give Triple H the match he needed: a street fight at Madison Square Garden. Charlie breaks down this Perfect 10 from Royal Rumble 2000 that marked the moment that Triple H could confidently stand on his own and be regarded by the fans as one of the tops stars in the wrestling business.

    The Perfect 10's - Lex Luger vs. Ric Flair (WrestleWar '90)

    The Perfect 10's - Lex Luger vs. Ric Flair (WrestleWar '90)

    This week, William is joined by Drew Wardlaw (@_burningspirits) from the You Don't Know Billy Jack podcast featured on the Place to Be Wrestling Network. Drew has picked Lex Luger vs. Ric Flair from WrestleWar '90 for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. Luger has a complicated history and reception in wrestling, but this is a defining match for him and for Flair, and it's a great discussion about NWA, WCW, and WWF versions of the Luger character and what worked and what didn't.

    The Perfect 10's - The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles (WrestleMania 36)

    The Perfect 10's - The Undertaker vs. AJ Styles (WrestleMania 36)

    WWE always wants WrestleMania to be memorable, and in 2020 they certainly got that with WrestleMania 36.

    Was The Undertaker versus AJ Styles going to be a memorable match if it was a one-on-one match in a ring in front of thousands of fans? We'll never know. What we do know is that because of COVID-19, WrestleMania changed and so did the matchup between The Phenom and The Phenomenal One. A match in the squared circle became The Boneyard Match, and unbeknownst to everyone, it would become one of The Undertaker's signature moments in his storied career. The old gunfighter, many times compared to Clint Eastwood as a persona, does battle one more time (and who knows, maybe the last time) in an event that has the ramifications to change WWE programming forever.
