WWE fans tune in every week because wrestling is simply entertaining. Take extremely athletic and dedicated wrestlers, strong yet beautiful Divas, and storylines that rival any daytime soap opera, and these are just a few of the things that make the WWE so great and one of the top sports and entertainment events in the world. However, few things are better than seeing a good rivalry between top Superstars.
Even before it was known as the WWE, professional wrestling has always had rivalries that build up a juicy storyline and end with an exhilarating match between the two (or sometimes more!) foes. To be great, a rivalry has to have the combination of great wrestlers that the fans either love or love to hate, an engaging storyline, and a believable match or two, usually set at one of the company’s Pay-Per-View events. Every main event erupts from a rivalry that is shown throughout the weeks on shows including Raw and SmackDown before blowing up into a huge match that may or may not resolve the issue.
Some rivalries continue on until it’s time to move on to the next big challenge. In 2015, wrestling fans have already seen some of the best rivalries in recent years, and we have 10 of the best feuds of the year for your enjoyment.

1 Undertaker Gets His Revenge on Brock Lesnar
At Wrestlemania 30, the WWE Universe was stunned when Undertaker’s 21-0 streak changed to 21-1 following a defeat by the Beast Brock Lesnar. In July, Undertaker made an appearance during Lesnar’s match on Raw, seeking his revenge for his loss. After weeks of a highly-publicized match, Undertaker got his revenge at SummerSlam 2015, but many fans called foul on the way he won the match. Lesnar got Undertaker to submit. However, the ref didn’t see it. The timekeeper, however, did see, and as the two argued, Undertaker went in for a low blow, then immediately reacted to get Lesnar to submit, a move that the ref did see. As of September, this appears to be the end of the rivalry between the Beast and one of WWE’s greatest legends.
