Okada's rise to the top was bold and satisfying, but if you're talking a singular moment, it has to be the end of WrestleMania XXX, Daniel Bryan tapping out Batista and ending the show with confetti raining down on him. In retrospect, it should've been WWE's series finale. The way the company has been decaying ever since has been both a shame and endemic of what corporate suits drunk on capitalism do to businesses when they only care about a buck. WrestleMania XXX was the last time one could expect this wrestling promotion to actually get wrestling right. It was also cathartic and satisfying and the culmination of a year of the Fed's best product that it's ever done. They've hit high notes here or there, but they've been sporadic. Bryan's triumph was the last time WWE was anywhere close to being excellent at its stated craft.What is your wrestling moment of the decade?— Brian Coulter (@PhilaBCoulter) December 4, 2019
For me, the decision to go with Kazuchika Okada as a top guy in 2012 is still causing ripple effects.
