With news that MTV2 is resurrecting Celebrity Deathmatch, we’ve decided to take a look through some of our favorite fights from the iconic 90’s show.
1. Hanson vs. the Spice Girls:
Marilyn Manson’s revenge on the 90’s teeny boppers was a bold statement when it aired. As die-hard Spice Girls fans, we were a bit disappointed.
2. Mariah Carey vs. Jim Carrey:
Finally, definitive proof that Mariah Carey’s range is not only impressive, but insufferable.
3. Oprah vs. Rosie O’Donnell vs. Jerry Springer:
The match that began as just a battle of talk show queens, Oprah vs. Rosie, was postponed to a later date when Jerry Springer interfered and demanded he be involved. The iconic match was Celebrity Deathmatch‘s first use of the Dome of Devastation.
4. The X-Files‘ David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson vs. Men in Black‘s Tommy Lee Jones & Will Smith:
This was the sort of match the world needed in the 90s. Conspiracy theorists vs. cover-up artists makes for the geekiest and most entertaining match we could have suggested.
5. Dolly Parton vs. Jennifer Lopez:
Both of these stars were supposed to use their breast assets for this fight, so, needless to say, it was a sight to behold.
6. Madonna vs. Michael Jackson:
“It appears to be some sort of crotch-grabbing Mexican stand-off” is probably our favorite way to describe Madonna’s relationship with Michael Jackson now.
7. Meryl Streep vs. Cameron Diaz:
In this episode, all about a potential Celebrity Deathmatch movie, the finale features these two stars battling it out in a stage fight, but, since it’s Meryl Streep, became incredibly real.
8. Mandy Moore vs. P!nk:
Only Mandy Moore is sweet enough to kill someone else with a lollipop.
9. Ozzy Osbourne vs. Elton John:
From punching Queen Elizabeth II repeatedly in the face to having her perform the Heimlich on Ozzy after he swallows Elton John’s head hole, this is one Celebrity Deathmatch that is simply too outrageous to be ignored.
10. Backstreet Boys vs. Beastie Boys:
The only way to determine which ‘Boys’ were the best was to put them into giant robots and have them fight to the death. Seriously, why did this show ever go away?
