The rock is a good actor... He's an actor, right? In Witch Mountain Race or something. - HezarioSeth
Just the best rivalry and the most entertaining.
This made the Attitude Era great.
A rivalry that led to the infamous "Montreal Screw Job". Former tag team wrestlers that had great chemistry with each other.
It was so real.! - CedreticFomento
With Ted Turners money backing him, WCW's Bischoff nearly ended the WWE empire.
These two had some of the greatest technical matches ever. A rivalry that spanned the late 70's through the early 90's. They were so evenly matched.
A rivalry that lasted throughout the 80's. Hogan lost to Andre several times over the years but that changed with one big body slam at Wrestlemania 3.
Very fking intense bloody rivalry it has to be in the top 3.
Stone cold Steve Austin vs The rock is so overrated like come on people (-_-)
This should be in the top 3
This has been a Rivalry for as long as they've been in the WWE and Before as well! - Curti2594

The greatest storyline and rivalry in wrestling history. The face of wcw vs the biggest threat to wcw in the face of hogan & the nwo. This was epic

THAT'S WHY THEY ARE CALLED...THE BROTHERS OF DESTRUCTION! DON'T COME IN THEIR WAY OR UNDERTAKER AND KANE WILL CHOKESLAM YOU STRAIGHT TO HELL!
Throughout the 'summer of punk' in 2011, I was more excited then I ever have since starting to watch wrestling in 2004. The matches were amazing, the matches were 5-star and it was a perfect blend of old school/new era. I cannot believe this isn't higher, as the complexity, longevity and awesomeness of this never-ending feud really brought a lot of people back to wrestling.
The Dynamic of this rivalry is that Cena is the Superman of the WWE while CM Punk is Batman. Cena may have had more intense rivalries with Orton & Edge, but Punk has that conflicting personality to Cena that makes it feel more authentic. When Punk & Cena were both faces in 2011 it had a Hogan/Savage type of rivalry that was not seen too often. In 2012 when Punk feuded with Cena as Top Heel it developed into a Hogan/Piper rivalry. Maybe someday Punk & Cena can complete the trifecta with Cena being the Top Heel and Punk as the Top Face to make a Rock/Austin typeof rivalry.
Do you remember their Hell in a Cell match were Mankind was tossed off the cage through a table?
Greatest tag team rivalry from 87' to 89'.
Their match at Wrestlemania 3 was arguably the best of all time.
Two wrestlers with simular wrestling styles. The way they were able to counter each others moves was astonishing.
They had a major rivalry in and out of the ring.
It was the Life Styles of the Rich and Famous vs the every day working man. A rivalry that took wrestling out of the stone ages an brought it to where it is now. Awesome times.
From 1981 to 1986, every match was for the NWA world title.
Greatest feud. of the 80s
List of times faced each other one on one:Against all odds 2005 30 minute iron man match, Final Resolution 2009, Destination X 2011, Impact Wrestling on Spike September 1st 2011, - jared5
If the WWE would have done it right, these two should have traded the belt back and forth for a decade or so. No other wrestlers over that era were in the same ball park with either.
What a great rivalry it was...
Michael P.S. hayes and Terry "Bam Bam" Gordy started a war that lasted nearly 5 years when they got involved in a world title match between Kerry Von Erich and Ric Flair in a cage. Fritz and four sons battled up to four members of the Freebirds in six man tag matches. Both groups went at each other "Tooth and Nail" every match. It's something you'll never see again.
This was and still remains the greatest fued in pro wrestling history.
Remember their hair vs. Hair match?
Should have headlined WM 22
Their rivalry propelled future Wrestlemania's.
Two Texans that had a natural rivalry. Battled for NWA title for over a year in the 70's.
From the time Hogan landed in the AWA in 81' through the mid 90's in WCW, Heenan's #1 mission was to stack opponents in front of him. Anybody from Bockwinkel to Andre, he never wanted Hogan to succeed.
Arguably the best rivalry in TNA history.
3 amazing wrestlemania matches, first 2 no holds barred and the final a hell in a cell with shawn Michaels as the ref
That 'I quit' match at 2005 Judgment Day was a literal bloodbath.
Great matches battle of Atlanta. cage match greatest cage match ever
Greatest cage match ever battle of Atlanta
Before Flair became "The Man", he had to beat the man.
The scaffold match in 86' was awesome.
It took Hennig a long time to dethrone Bockwinkel in the AWA.
Probably the best ECW rivalry.
best ever - EliHbk
Mankind used a fork lift to pin the Rock for the title
Vicious matches for years and years.
Several matches in wwe, 2 world title matches in tna, one was a ladder match which hardy won. Ken won the first world title match right after defeating matt morgan to become number 1 contender - jared5
Best feud of all time bur why is it no 29
This seems very low for such a seemingly personal fued that was supposed to one match
This rivalry began in 1997 and ended in 2010
Every time they faced each other it was wild and controversial.
How is this 175? Its easily a top 25 All Time Rivalry.
During the mid 80's they had some of the bloodiest matches I have ever seen whether they were in the AWA or WWF.
