WWE names the 20 greatest WCW matches of all time

We love a good countdown list here at Cageside Seats and WWE is back with its latest: The 20 greatest WCW matches of all time. Who made number one?


There's nothing we love more than a good countdown list and is back with its latest, which ticks down the 20 greatest matches in the history of World Championship Wrestling (WCW).

This should be good:

20. Sting vs. Diamond Dallas Page - Nitro, April 26, 1999
19. Dean Malenko vs. Eddie Guerrero - Uncensored 1997
18. Big Van Vader vs. Cactus Jack - Halloween Havoc 1993
17. 3 Count vs. Jung Dragons - New Blood Rising 2000
16. Diamond Dallas Page vs. Macho Man Randy Savage - Spring Stampede 1997
15. Cactus Jack and Maxx Payne vs. Nasty Boys - Spring Stampede 1994
14. Rey Mysterio vs. Dean Malenko - Great American Bash 1996
13. Ric Flair vs. Hulk Hogan - Bash at the Beach 1994
12. Steiner Brothers vs. Sting and Lex Luger - SuperBrawl 1991
11. Ricky Steamboat vs. Rick Rude - Beach Blast 1992
10. Brian Pillman vs. Jushin Liger - SuperBrawl II
9. Stunning Steve Austin vs. Ricky Steamboat - Bash at the Beach 1994
8. Sting's Squadron vs. Dangerous Alliance - WrestleWar 1992
7. Ric Flair vs. Big Van Vader - Starrcade 1993
6. Rey Mysterio vs. Ultimo Dragon - World War 3 1996
5. Sting vs. Ric Flair - Clash of the Champions XXVII
4. Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero - Halloween Havoc 1997
3. Goldberg vs. Diamond Dallas Page - Halloween Havoc 1998
2. Sting vs. Ric Flair - Great American Bash 1990
1. Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat - 1989 Series*

*This was a copout on's part because they couldn't pick just one of the series of great matches between Flair and Steamboat, so they used the collective. Hard to blame them for that.
