Whether you like it or not, the 2010s are coming to an end.

It's been a monumental decade, one that historians will look back with a great deal of interest and, hopefully, not too much regret.

The same can be said for wrestling fans. The past ten years have seen several seismic shifts in the landscape of the industry; we've seen the WWE returns of Bret Hart, Goldberg, and The Rock, the end of The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak, and who could forget the most monumental innovation of all - Mixed Match Challenge.

There have been several pivotal moments in WWE since 2010, moments that have had huge ramifications on the company and the industry as a whole. Whilst some years have contained more of these moments than others, the following ten matches all have a case for being the most history-making, ground-shaking bouts to take place in their respective calendar years.

For good or bad, better or worse, these ten matches either led to, contributed to, or were the culmination of huge changes in the world of WWE.

They may not all be matches that people remember fondly, but they're definitely going down in history for one reason or another.
