Number 10: WrestleMania V: Macho Man vs. Hulk Hogan

Holding the WWE Championship, Macho Man was at the top of his game in many ways. His ability to create magic in the ring while keeping his flashy and flamboyant persona was fantastic to watch. Savage was the best, and he would face the most popular in Hulk Hogan. Battling for the WWE Championship and the love of Miss Elizabeth, this feud struck gold with everyone who invested their time into. I can remember when Savage hit an elbow onto Hogan's throat, and the pain that was in Hogan's face. I loved the progression of the match, back and forth, not knowing who had the upper hand at each moment. Finally, Hogan hulked up, hit punches, and connected with a Leg Drop to capture his second WWE Championship. Lasting just under 18 minutes, this is considered one of the best matches that Hogan has put on, and he has Randy to thank for that. Great story, better build, and a match that did not disappoint.
