Even better than their Summerslam 1992 bout, Bret Hart battles a confident Bulldog in a brutal bout where Bret bleeds profusely. The match beautifully transitions from a traditional technical bout to a brutal ECW-esque bloodbath. Amazing

I respect the history of wrestling and the influence of both of these men, but technical wrestling in those days was incredibly inferior. I don't see why this deserves to be so high up.

No mention of the match between Harley Race and Andre the Giant. During this 1978 championship match, Race managed to pick up Andre and bodyslammed him. The title says "The Best Pro Wrestling Matches Of All Time". So, in all fairness, it should include matches that happened 50-100+ years ago like Frank Gotch vs. George Hackenschmidt or Ed "Strangler" Lewis vs. Joe Stecher or Lou Thesz vs. Buddy "The Nature Boy" Rogers, not just matches that happened 20-30 years ago.
