The 50 greatest matches in Raw history

#40 The Rock vs. The Hurricane (March 10, 2003)

When you’re as unfathomably successful as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the rare failures in your life tend to stand out. That would explain the endless stream of “Tooth Fairy” jokes John Cena launched in The Great One’s direction during the buildup to their WrestleMania showdown. It’s also why The Rock’s 2003 bout against the emerald headed Hurricane keeps coming up in conversation.

A spastic comic book nerd decked out in cape and cowl, WWE’s resident superhero was dismissed by The Brahma Bull as a Hamburglar wannabe. So The Brahma Bull was more than little shocked when Hurricane drove him into the canvas with a chokeslam during their 2003 bout. The Rock took control from there, but when he went for The People’s Elbow, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin’s music hit and The Texas Rattlesnake came marching defiantly down the entrance ramp. Distracted by the man he would soon face at WrestleMania 19, The Great One turned his attention away from his fallen opponent, which allowed The Hurricane to roll him up for one of the biggest upsets in WWE history.
