Re: Best IC Title Ladder Match?

I went with Rock/Hunter from Summerslam 1998. Breakout performance for both that really established Rock in particular as a guy who could really bring it on a main event level. And sure enough, 3 months later, he'd be WWF champion. I think this match did a lot to show the fans he was legit. Great story, good drama, very enjoyable match.

I think HBK/Razor WM10 is extremely overrated. At the time I'm sure it was incredible, but they've done almost everything in ladder matches since and that lessens the impact to me because I watched it years after the fact. Sit through TLC 2 and then watch this. It feels like HBK/Razor isn't in the same stratosphere.

The next contender is Jericho/Benoit from the 2001 Rumble. Also a great match, but I felt a bit of a disconnect in it, story wise. It felt like moves being done just to set up more moves. The two had a good rivalry in 2000, but that was months removed from that. The last time they had a PPV match prior was Summerslam. So that's 5 months before. I felt some of the steam in the story had been lost. Contrast this to Rock/Hunter, where the ladder match was the culmination of their story. Rock and Hunter were the leaders of their respective factions. The Nation and DX had been feuding since late April or early May of 1998. So about 4 months prior. The two went to a draw in a 2/3 falls match after going 30 minutes at Fully Loaded the month prior. Their feud felt a lot hotter because there wasn't a giant gap in between.
