With Golden State and Cleveland facing off for the third straight year, we look at the 10 greatest championship rematches of all-time.
Cleveland and Golden State are squaring up for the third time in a row in the NBA Finals. The first left a lot to be desired. The second meeting was historic. While many believe the Warriors have too much talent to overcome, history has proven when rivals face off back-to-back, anything is possible.
Over the last 60 years, we have been treated to quite a few sequels in a variety of sports championships. Much like movies, many did not live up to the original. A rare few, however, met the hype and surpassed it. Here’s a list of The 10 Greatest Championship Rematches.

You don't have a nickname like "The Iceman" and not be a scary dude. Also with Liddell, there's something about his mohawk that creeps me out a little bit, just adds to his meathead persona. I also saw him in an episode of Entourage, and that seemed to start my fear of him, even if he was just acting. (Source: Twitter)
From a physical stature, Mankind isn't that intimidating, he's a pretty average sized guy. But the combination of that super weird mask he wore, and even weird sock he wore on his hand gets him on this list, strictly for being a psychopath. Those are the scariest guys of 'em all. (Source: Twitter)

Look, I'm not a guy that's afraid of clowns, but I understand people's fear of them. That being said, if this weirdo doesn't creep the hell out of you, then you're just a flat out liar. I know wresting is fake and everything, but I feel like he'd pull a knife on you at any given moment in the ring. No thank you. (Source: Twitter)
Undertaker, man. If that guy doesn't scare you, then you just aren't capable of feeling anything, most likely because you're a dead person. I cry inside and out every time he rolls his eyes into the back of his head. I respect him as a wrestler, but man does this guy give me nightmares. (Source: Twitter)
This is what I know about Jon Jones: he's got a problem with drugs and I think alcohol, and he's damn good at fighting. A guy with a substance abuse problem and an ability to beat me to death is a terrifying thought. If you ever read this Jon Jones, please don't hurt me. (Source: Twitter)
Much like Drago, I know Clubber Lang isn't real, but he was in Rocky 3, and he was an absolute monster with the gloves on. Thankfully, he fell victim to everyone's favorite boxer. I pity the fool! (Source: Twitter)
It’s one thing to be treated to two different championship series featuring two of the best performers at their peaks. It’s another when we’ve seen so many twists and intrigue thrown into the pot.
Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love getting hurt two years ago. Draymond Green getting suspended last year aiding in the Warriors 3-1 collapse. On its third installment, one can only hope for more Rocky III, than Godfather III.
