In a PWO2K thread discussing Takayama vs Akiyama, Loss posed the intriguing question: Is there a better match where the participants have rhyming names?

 

After thinking about it for at least 20 minutes, I think I came up with a reasonable suggestion, but since then the idea has been rattling around in my brain non-stop. 

 

Did this one ever happen? ...because it could be right up there: 

 

Jack Brisco vs Larry Zbyszko

 

Dick Togo vs Mr. Pogo

 

I think the following might have happened at some point, but probably would not have been as good as Akiyama vs Takayama (or Jushin Liger vs Black Tiger): 

 

Porkchop Cash vs Kevin Nash

 

Black Bart vs Bret Hart

 

I think the following certainly never happened, but I'd like to see them:

 

Asian Cooger & Freddy Krueger* vs Lex Luger and Bastion Booger

*(Doug Gilbert's IWA Japan persona)

 

Daniel Bryan vs Raja Lion

 

Koko Ware & B. Brian Blair vs The Nature Boy Ric Flair & Terrible Ted the Wrestling Bear

 

El Felino vs Sammartino

 

The Garvins*  vs The Marvins**

*(Rugged Ron and Gorgeous Jimmy)

**(Ricky and Rocky)

 

Sangre Chicana vs Colt Cabana vs Tito* Santana

*(or Ricky)


These were the worst ones I came up with: 

 

Fabulous Moolah vs The Butcher, Abdullah

 

Aja Kong vs Theodore R. Long

 

 

What have you got?

Pretty sure Ikuto Hidaka vs. Minoru/Masato Tanaka has happened a few times. Same with Yuji Okabayashi vs. Abdullah Kobayashi.

I think Raven vs Maven happened on Raw in 2002. I'm not sure if Ricky Morton ever faced Scott Norton.

Ice Train vs. Powers of Pain

 

If we are gonna allow handicap matches, I'd also go for the Brisco(e) Brothers vs Tracy Smothers 

 

 

 

Catweazle vs Diesel

 

That is beautiful.
