Great Matches in the New Generation Era
 
I just recently finished watching/rewatching a ton of matches from Smackdown in 2002, 2003, and 2009, and I want to move on to classic/underrated matches between 1993-1996. I have seen most of the landmark PPV matches (Hart Brothers, Michaels/Hall, Ironman Match), but other than that, I have not seen much from this era. Right now I am just using Meltzer's ratings to determine what matches to watch, but could anybody give me recommendations for solid matches (especially television bouts) during this period?

Watch any of Bret or Shawn's 'In Your House' matches. Shawn Michaels was doing great stuff. His matches with Jeff Jarrett, Razor Ramon and Diesel are obviously great. Bret Hart was really at his peak in terms of matches during this era, as well: he had great matches with Hakushi, 123 Kid and Disel during that era. The matches that really stand out were Bret vs Owen at Wrestlemania 10 and Bret vs Owen at Summerslam 1994.

Shawn and Razor's ladder match at SummerSlam '95 is drastically better than their incredibly overrated match at WrestleMania X.

That Bret Hart vs 1-2-3 Kid was the best match I ever saw out of Xpac. It was one of Bret's best as well, and he did an awesome job of putting over a young up-and-comer by both the match quality, and his selling of 1-2-3 Kid nearly pulling the upset.

7:48 is the best ref bump ever. :lmao


All the Michaels/Owen Hart matches are well worth a look.

Also...



This is apparently a quiet great match of 90s WWF, but I haven't seen it yet. Be interested to hear anybody's thoughts on this.

Bret Hart - 123 Kid is absolutely great. One of my personal favorites. It really made Waltman look like a million bucks.
