4. Taker/Batista WM23
5. Taker/Edge WM24


Thing is I could go back and forth on 1 & 2 being the best and 3-5 too. They are some of my favorite matches ever and I expect WM28 to be added to the mix this year. Undertaker's single performances in them are all time great performances from any wrestler ever especially WM26.
That's how I would rank them too.

People have asked the question about what is the best heel vs. heel match ever in WWE history and this match is probably my answer. Both men were so athletically gifted and they displayed that in this match with the counter holds and kip-ups. Owen as he often did in his matches embellished his heel character work all over this one. Bulldog tried the fair wrestling game with his tag partner/brother-in-law but Owen introduced the dirty tricks and Bulldog answered accordingly. The pace was breakneck, loved the counter wrestling and the close, frequent near falls. This was an outstanding wrestling match and a great introduction to a new championship.

Yes, and it's one of the best Raw matches ever at that. It's also on the Hart Family Anthology and Raw 15th Anniversary sets.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Love that match. Also love that they didn't JUST go out there and do fancy moves and counters, but they had a really nice little story with both guys being friends/tag partners/family and heels, and then both of them eventually devolving into just heels and forgetting about liking the other guy, which results in them doing ANYTHING to win, regardless of what it might to do their friendship. Can't think of a better Raw match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I totally agree Cal. Owen/Bulldog is a highly character driven match + you get the great athleticism and breakneck paced wrestling. The match is a beauty to watch build from start to finish.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oddly enough I watched that match the other day and really enjoyed it. I really need to watch Raws from '97. Not necessarily the whole shows but the stuff with Austin, Owen, Bulldog, etc. I've seen most of the February, March and April ones but that's it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

On the subject of great Survivor Series matches, who cares about the circa-"invasion" stuff? Who cares about 2005?! If you want a good elimination match, look to 2006. Team DX vs. Team Rated RKO is amazing! It starts b/c the crowd chants for Punk, which leads to Trips allowing him to start the DX "RU ready?" bit. Then, HBK eliminates someone super-fast. (I forget now who, & I'm not sure he ever knew. Then, he poses with Melina, who isn't looking, & thinks he's Morrison.

AMAZING match.
