10. Braun Strown Vs. Tyson Fury (Crown Jewel 2019)
There are a lot of celebrity and part-timers on this list
for good reason: they either are past their prime and not capable of delivering
in the ring, or they just don’t have what it takes to be believable in a match.
Tyson Fury versus Braun Strowman was all about the spectacle, and maybe two years ago, critics gave it a bit of a pass because that’s all it had to be – a spectacle. After all, it was the lineal heavyweight boxing champion against WWE’s resident monster. But after watching Bad Bunny’s performance at WrestleMania 37, you have to re-evaluate these other performances.
Sadly, Fury really wasn’t up to the task of putting on a decent match. The showmanship was there, but without a great dance partner to lead (Braun wasn’t going to carry Tyson to a serviceable match), we were left with a clunker of a contest.
Really, you can’t fault either guy. Strowman is capable of coming up to someone’s level, and Fury was energetic and game, but those two things don’t add up to good wrestling.
