5 Legendary gimmick matches from wrestling’s past

There are so many ridiculous and awesome match types in wrestling’s past. This blog will cover 5 of the most legendary gimmick matches of all time.

Casket Match

The casket match is a type of professional wrestling match in which the object is to force your opponent into an enclosed coffin. The first ever recorded casket match took place in 1885 between Mark “The Undertaker” Calaway and James “The Ultimate Warrior” Hellwig at Wrestlemania 14. The casket was sealed shut before the match began and opened after Calaway emerged victorious. Many other notable casket matches have occurred since then including matches between “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Kane, Batista, and The Undertaker.

Buried Alive Match

A buried alive match is a much more dangerous version of the casket match in which the winner must literally bury his opponent alive. The first ever buried alive match took place at In Your House 15: A Cold Day In Hell between “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan and Scott Steiner. Steiner won this match with help from former friend turned enemy Ric Flair by putting Hogan into a figure four leglock and burying him with a backhoe provided by Fl

Wrestling is a spectacle of the macabre and ridiculous. A good gimmick match is a fun concept that goes beyond two men beating each other up. They can be used to settle grudges or boost feuds, but they don’t always have to make sense. Sometimes, they’re just an excuse to be a little more creative with what we see in the ring.

WWE WrestleMania 31 will feature Ladder Match between R-Truth, Bray Wyatt, Dean Ambrose, Luke Harper and Dolph Ziggler for the Intercontinental Championship on Sunday. It’s not quite as dramatic as the classic ladder matches we’ve seen in WWE history, but it could lead to some exciting moments.

Here are five other legendary gimmick matches from wrestling’s past:

Wrestling’s focus on the short term means that there is little sense of continuity or history in this industry. This is one of wrestling’s defining characteristics, but it also leads to a lack of respect for the past. With WWE and other wrestling promotions constantly churning out new content, looking back at previous storylines or gimmicks is rarely done.

This blog series will look at 5 legendary gimmick matches from professional wrestling history, and examine how they were used to tell stories between wrestlers.

When I was a kid, wrestling was at its absolute peak in terms of popularity. I remember having a huge poster of the Rock on my wall, watching all the PPVs, and saving all my loose change for action figures. It was the best of times.

Though it’s not as popular now, wrestling is still alive and well. One of the things that made wrestling so much fun back then, and still does today, is their willingness to go over the top with ridiculous storylines and match types. Here are five of my favorites:

As a child of the 90s, I grew up watching professional wrestling. To me, there was nothing more exciting than cheering for my favorite wrestlers as they battled for the championship belt. With all the drama and excitement, it was no wonder I loved it so much.

While wrestling has changed since then, the spectacle is still just as entertaining and thrilling as ever. And when it comes to spectacle, few things are better than ridiculous gimmick matches.

Here I discuss five of the most notorious matches from professional wrestling history, including how they were created and what made them so outrageous.

Cage Match: The Cage Match, or Steel Cage match, is one of the most common types of match in wrestling today. In a cage match, two wrestlers (or groups of wrestlers) fight in a cage surrounding the ring to win by either pinfall or escape out of a door at the top of the cage.

The idea was first proposed by WWF owner Vincent McMahon Sr., who wanted wrestlers to have to “fight their way into the ring” through a crowd of brawling fans at ringside.[1] It was first used in 1972 (with a different type of cage) at an event called Madison Square Garden Spectacular.[2] The concept gained popularity

Every month or so, I get this urge to watch some old WWE/WCW/ECW ppvs. However, I never seem to make it past the first few matches before I need to switch off as it becomes almost too painful to watch.

I was going through my collection and re-living old memories with a friend over the weekend and we came up with a game of sorts for watching these events. It’s a simple game really: you have to pick the match that will be the breaking point where you can no longer continue watching.

The criteria for this are virtually anything: the match could be boring, confusing, bad or just plain stupid. You must also state why you feel that this particular match is going to be your breaking point.

Let’s take a look at five of my personal choices:

Before the Internet was a thing, wrestling fans in the United States relied on magazines and newsletters to get their fix of the sport. It was during this time that a newsletter called The Wrestling Observer Newsletter was founded by Dave Meltzer. Meltzer, with his team of writers, have been reporting on the latest and greatest happenings in wrestling since 1983.

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has become one of the most read publications in history. Their website is one of the most popular wrestling news sites in the world as well.

The best thing about The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is that it’s completely free. You don’t need to pay for a subscription to access any of their content, which is why it’s become one of the most popular websites on the Internet today.
