2010: Year of Extremes

Probably the most memorable moments of 2010 were extreme matches. Unfortunately, it was also the year in which we saw the official death of ECW...

March-- Hulk Hogan and Abyss v. Ric Flair and AJ Styles was a far better match featuring guys who are or could be grandpas than the Vince McMahon v. Bret Hart match we saw later on in the month. Both Hogan and Flair had a classic match, both bloodied, and used the younger guys as appropriate buffers.

July-- Amazing was the only thing going through my mind when Randy Orton RKO'd Evan Bourne in mid-air.

August-- At Hardcore Justice, TNA's tribute to the wrestlers who were the ECW originals, one of the best matches was the South Philly Street in which Team 3D defeated Kahoneys (Balls Mahoney) and Axl Rotten by putting Kahoneys through a flaming table.

The other memorable match (although at times disturbing, considering some parts were happening directly in front of Tommy's family) from the night goes to the organizer, Tommy Dreamer, and his brutal match against Raven.

December-- I will always remember the image of Jimmy Superfly Snuka leaping off the top of the cage and now I will always remember Mickie James and her leap off the top of the cage:
