The 10 best matches of 2016
And there have truly been some classics
Time flies when you’re having fun. And 2016 has been a hell of a lot of fun. From new championships to new Superstars to old rivalries renewed on the grandest possible stage to dream matches we thought we’d never see, this year has encapsulated the very best WWE has to offer.
And it’s only half over!
As we round into the back nine of 2016, WWE.com looks back on the ten best bouts of the year so far.
#10 Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens: WWE Payback
These two have been teaming and tussling for the better part of a decade; some would go so far as to say their careers are intertwined, or, if you’re in a comic-booky mood, “destined to do this forever.”
In that case, count their first one-on-one match on a WWE pay-per-view among their best. Owens won, by the way, but that hardly matters; Zayn beat him in a rematch later on Raw. On and on it goes.
