Royal Rumble Top 30 - January 19

12. Bret Hart vs. Razor Ramon - 1993
Have I mentioned lately how much I love Scott Hall? Shocking, the guy named Razor loved Razor Ramon as a kid. Ramon's rise to the WWE Title match at the Rumble in 93 was unlikely, rumors were Bret was supposed to defend against The Ultimate Warrior, but I think it's safe to say this match was much better than that hypothetical battle would have been.

These two had a great old school wrestling match with Bret being much more aggressive than usual, perhaps due to the fact that Razor threw his toothpick in the face of the little kid Bret gave his sunglasses to before the match. Have I mentioned how much I love Scott Hall?

It's not a flashy match and I do prefer their battle at the inaugural King of the Ring PPV later that year, but for what was their first one-on-one encounter in WWE, it turned out to be a really solid bout. Vintage Heenan & Gorilla on commentary too!
