Just got done with the last '97 RAW, watched all year plus the PPV's. Great, great year for the WWF, had two GOAT-contender matches (Hart/Austin and HBK/Taker) as well as some cool storylines (the beginning of Taker/Kane, Austins rise & the screwjob/DX formation). Yeah it had it's crap, just like any year (Goldust in the last two months, god that was... different).
Top 10 matches:
1) HBK/Taker HIAC (IYH: Badd Blood) - *****
2) B. Hart/Austin (WM13) - ****3/4
3) HBK/Taker (Ground Zero) - ****1/4
4) Taker/Hart - HBK as special ref (Summerslam) - ****1/4
5) HBK/B. Hart (Survivor Series) - ****
6) O. Hart/Austin (Summerslam) - ****
7) HBK/Austin - KOTR - ****
8) Mankind/HHH - Steel Cage (Summerslam) - ***1/2
9) Davey Boy Smith/O. Hart (3/3 RAW) - ***1/2
10) Davey Boy Smith & O. Hart/HBK & Austin (25/5 RAW) - ***1/4
Note: Taker = GOAT, baby!
