10 Most Totally Random WWE Matches Ever

Some suitably wacky matches featuring Dean Ambrose. No wonder Jon Moxley jumped to AEW...

WWE

Pro wrestling matches aren't meant to be random.

They are, after all, booked.

Ideally, they are booked because you'd like to see them, and not for the hundredth f*cking time. Consider Jon Moxley Vs. Kenny Omega II, and how it told a tremendous story well before the match was made (or even happened) through the Tournament Eliminator framework.

Mox won the first meeting in a deranged, awesome Lights Out match. It was fought in his domain of expertise, and as Omega has quietly delighted in pointing out, technically, it didn't happen. Mox subsequently went undefeated and embarked on an all-time great babyface World Title run. Omega proved himself a World Champion in the tag division and, in a great in-character flex, turned singles mega-stardom on like a faucet through his Eliminator victory and caricature of a big-time player presentation. It's his time, but it's also Moxley's. This sequel is a meeting between the very best wrestler in the world and the man who is able, so effortlessly, to lay claim to the distinction. It is a match of superb dramatic parity.

This is all far better than - *checks notes* - an amateur of a wrestler vs. a man who competed at the Olympics in amateur wrestling...
