The Rock Names The Most Important Match In WWE History

It’s a debate that will rage on until the end of time

The old debate that will never die has once again reared its head: which is the most important match in WWE History? Is it Hogan vs. Andre? Bret vs. Austin? WeeLC? There are tons of matches that could all credibly claim to be the most important in history, and is a debate that will rage on until the end of time.

And now The Rock himself has thrown his selection into the mix.

Responding to a Tweet put out by @WWEonFox, The Great One had a firm answer:

“Hogan vs Sheik. NYC. Garden. 1984. (seminal match with historic implications and a legit bounty thrown in the mix)”

The match of course saw Hulk Hogan claim his first WWE Championship and ushered in the Rock & Wrestling boom period of the 80s and early 90s, and is definitely a worthy contender for most important match in WWE history.

What is your pick for the greatest match in WWE History? The obvious answer is of course Giant Gonzalez vs. The Undertaker.
