I think I'd have to hand it to Stone Cold back in 2001. That was one unbelievable year.
Flair '89
HBK '96 & '97
Austin '01

Those plus Bret Hart in 94/95 and Nov. 96 - Nov. 97. Bret was consistent throughout his 13/14 year run in WWF.

Call me CRAZY, but am I the only one who thought that Austin had a better 1997 than HBK? Austin was just unstoppable from January until August, then even when he was out injured he was still the most over guy in the company.

Greatest prime ever ? Flair in 1989 and nobody else really even comes close to coming close.

When we're talking about strictly WWE, Shawn's 96/97 ON COKE shit was awesome as fuck and is definitely the tops to me alongside Bret's return in 96 to his departure in 97, Stone Cold's fantastic run in 2001 that was GOD LIKE, Hunter's always talked about run in 2000/2001 up until his first quad tear, BROCK DA GAWD's entire two year + two match career in which he had over 10 ****+ matches in that period, Chris Benoit in 2004-2005ish, and of course I'm going to come out and say CM Punk's recent run has been nothing short of amazing and fantastic in today's WWE. We'll see if he can get back to his amazing ways come next week against Cena + Mania, but being in two matches with THE ROID doesn't exactly help one's match catalog.

Nothing touches the GOAT though .

I'd throw in a Michaels year while he was with the Rockers before I would claim his '97, personally. All I take away from HBK in '97 was Hell in a Cell & COKE.

Think it's known how I'm prone to praising his work with Rockers over his singles stuff.

I thought Undertaker had a better overall year in 97 to HBK. Vader x2 on PPV, Final Four match, Main event of WM where he wins the title, SS and ONO with Bret, HBK x2, and the awesome Kane feud building up from the night after WM all the way to HIAC where Kane finally debuted, then continued to WM before it started to go down the shitter. Plus Undertaker cut a ton of promos as well, he was far less limited during this time.

This, pretty much. To me, Flair's '89 trumps everyone. But after that, in terms of a year, I'd go HBK in 97. Whether it be matches, promos, he was just on another different level that year from anyone else. He probably (who are we kidding, he would have) had a hell of a '98 as well if not for the back injury. Probably not as great as his '97, but still pretty darn good.

If pure entertainment means something here then Undertaker's near year from late '98 - late '99 is probably going to be number one in my books.

Nothing will trump Ministry Deadman.

I'll agree with you on that one, most definitely.

Royal Rumble win
Feud with Bret Hart and the Hart Foundation
***** Wrestlemania 13 match
Slow build as a true main eventer, not just throwing the title on him when they easily could have.
Canadian Stampede Main Event.
Intercontinental title win.
Planting the seeds for one of the greatest feuds of all time between him and Rock.

It was a great year for him, back when the WWE knew how to build superstars up and not just throw them into the main event. I mean after the Rumble, the growing popularity and the ***** match between him and Bret at Mania, they could have quite easily gave him the belt but they slowly built him up, gave him the Intercontinental belt when it meant something and then 1998 it blew up.

I prefer his BIG EVIL heel run from late 01-mid 02 as far as pure Undertaker character goes. Adore that run. Watching him beat Hogan for the title live was awesome. Marked the fuck out in my living room at nearly 4am .
