For Taker vs. HBK for Mr. Wrestlemania, it's tough. I mean during the earlier years, Taker was severely limited by his gimmick. HBK's match out-did Taker in all those Wrestlemania's except WM14, which I'd put Taker/Kane above Austin/HBK, though in fairness to Michaels, he was injured.
WM24 and WM23 I'd say Taker/Batista and Taker/Edge comfortably beat HBK/Cena and HBK/Flair. For WM22, both their matches sucked, and I'm not honestly sure which I'd put above the other. WM21 HBK/Angle does beat Taker/Orton, but it's close. WM20 the triple threat clearly beats Taker/Kane, and WM19 the HBK/Jericho match destroys the handicap match Taker was involved in.
As far as match quality goes, I'd give it to HBK as where even in later years Taker had a few stinkers, HBK only had one (and it was with Vince McMahon, so you can't blame him), and ultimately while Taker's WM23 and WM24 matches beat HBK's respective matches on the same card, HBK's matches with Jericho and Razor are even better than those, and those matches are the respective best Taker/HBK matches for each individual, though Taker and HBK are each other's best opponent.
But Taker due to his streak in combination with his resume of matches has always felt like more of a staple to Mania, or at least has since WM20, so to say who is really Mr. Wrestlemania when all things are considered, it's tough. There's also a case for Hulk Hogan since along with WWE, Wrestlemania became a huge success in great part due to Hogan, and he has plenty of historic moments and even some great matches with Warrior and Savage. I wouldn't personally pick him, but the case is there.
But RAWK, are you doing all promotions as well or just strictly WWE?
I've decided to just make it WWE, since my knowledge on anything else is very limited.
