Wrestlezone’s Top 5: Triple Threat Championship Matches

Josh Isenberg

Number 5: Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio vs. Kurt Angle at Wrestlemania 22

Rey Mysterio

It was the feel good moment that many fans had been waiting for. Rey Mysterio won the Royal Rumble to earn a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship, but would continue to overcome more hurdles. He would have to fight off Kurt Angle AND Randy Orton to capture his first ever world title. Chicago, Illinois was the sight where we saw the biggest underdog in history overcome the odds. Overshadowed by Edge/Foley, McMahon/Michaels, and Triple H/Cena, this triple threat match was excellent on so many levels. The pace of the match was fast, was exciting, and it ultimately became one of my favorite 3 way matches ever. I am not a huge fan of Mysterio, but I will give credit where credit is due. I find it shocking that the match was only 9 minutes. Think about how good those 9 minutes were. The moment will live forever in our minds.
