30. The Rock vs. Hulk Hogan, WrestleMania X8

Date: 3/17/2002
Location: Toronto
Storyline: After eight years away from the WWE, Hulk Hogan returned to his old stomping grounds and picked a fight with The Rock, hitting him with a hammer, ramming an 18-wheeler into Rock's ambulance, and growing out his evil black beard.
Winner: The Rock, via the People's Elbow at 16:23
The Toronto crowd refused to boo Hogan, giving this match its interesting dynamic—Hogan and Rock playing both heel and baby face. Hogan wasn't the best worker during his 1980's heyday and was downright Paleolithic by this point but the match is entertaining as hell.
