Best Main Events That Weren't World Title Matches

The Big Show/Strowman match a few weeks back got me thinking about this.

What were your top ten main events that weren't World Title Bouts?


Separate for TV and PPV. Let's see what you have for both.

Pretty rare for a Main Event to be a non-title match, though.

Was 'Taker v. Mankind Hell In The Cell the ME on that card? That'd be up there as I'm pretty sure there wasn't a title on the line.

World War 3 '96 had a good finish. Came down to (if I remember right) Luger, Savage (the previous years winner), Giant, Nash, Hall & Syxx. Basically 5-on-1. Luger getting booked to nearly pull off the win was pretty good. The last 2 minutes or so of him eliminating one after the other before getting tossed by a recovered (from The Torture Rack) Giant on a double elimination was pretty hype. I don't remember shit else from the match, though. Split screen, 3 rings...a lot to try and concentrate on.

Sting v. Flair, last match of WCW, the penultimate "main event".

Wasn't Owen vs Brit Bulldog for the European Title the main event on that episode of RAW? That was a good one.
