The match represented the ongoing argument between WWE fans who argue about NXT's previous Black and Gold Era, and the new NXT 2.0 Era. So, the fight between the old school of the brand, and the new school was almost a real representation of what fans think with their powerful arguments, motives, rage, and anger.

#9 Roman Reigns vs Big E vs Booby Lashley at Monday Night Raw

It was one of the rare contests that had the promotion's two world champions in one feud, moreover, it involved several stars in the promotion such as Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods who were Big E's companions in the New Day trio, Booby Lashley who was the previous WWE Champion, and the Usos who are Reigns' companions in the Bloodline trio.

#10 Bad Bunny & Damian Priest vs The Miz & John Morrison at WrestleMania 37

This match was one of the greatest tag team matches in the year, especially as Bunny wasn't a professional wrestler.

However, the Grammy-awarded star gave the WWE Universe several professional wrestling moves and presented a harmonized performance with Priest. This performance delightfully impressed the fans.
