Diving deeper into his love for studying matches, Tony Khan shared why he thinks Kerry Von Erich vs Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler from SuperClash III is a great match to study. In addition, he also revealed there is one WrestleMania match he watches every year!

The Young Bucks vs Hangman Page and Kenny Omega from Revolution 2020 is one. “The other is (Randy) Savage vs. (Ricky) Steamboat. I go back and watch it every year. They’re completely different; one has all the bells and whistles, one has less bells and whistles. They’re both perfect, one is my favorite tag team match, the other is my favorite singles match.” said TK. H/t WrestlingInc.

‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage and Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat fought in an epic battle at WrestleMania III. This match was a culmination of their long feud that lasted over six months. The storytelling and the action inside the ring is just wonderful. We would definitely recommend you all to watch it if not already!
