Once upon a time, the handicap match was designed specifically for the larger than life guys. Andre The Giant, Haystacks Calhoun, King Kong Bundy and other big guys of that stature; they were the ones who would sometimes find themselves in  3-on-1 matches against local, normally unheard of talent, also known as "jobbers."

Fans would go crazy over these matches. The older eras would make a lot of money off of these matches, which at that time, were sort of out of the box, so to speak. It simply wasn't the normal one on one contest and that fact alone was a major selling point at a time when everything was mostly structured towards the everyday, cookie cutter contests.

Essentially, when someone such like Stephanie McMahon doesn't get her way,  or they don't get something they want, they'll just throw the babyface into some sort of handicap match. 

In this article, we will take a look at 5 handicap matches where the underdog found found a way to defeat multiple opponents in one match. These are the top 5 handicap match victories.
