Taker/Batista WM23 is my MOTY for 2007 and Taker/Edge SSlam for 2008 although at times I'm tempted to switch those with Orton/Michaels SSeries and Michaels/Flair WM24.

Definitely Cena/Umaga for 07. #2 would probably be Cena/Michaels 1 and I don't think it's even close to being as good as Cena/Umaga. Not 100% sure about 2008, but Taker/Show LMS is the best thing I can remember seeing. Good chunk of stuff that year that's pretty much just as good as it. Flair/Michaels, Trip/Hardy, I loved one of the Michaels/Jerichos. Unforgiven, I think.

2008 also had a very good HHH/Cena match from Night of Champions.

I'm just making a general statement about Shawn producing some quality stuff in a year that people believe was a completely terrible year, and only Cena had a solid string of matches. The Taker/Batista series was excellent too.

I read this and thought you were questioning someone.

Speaking of 2007, no one talks about Cena's (or anybody else's, really) TV year other than the long Enlgand match. I'm going to go on youtube and see what Cena's TV stuff was like. Probably be a nostalgia trip, too.

Aw that's suppose to be "You know what?" to start a new conversation.

I remember a big multi-man tag happening on Raw that year but nothing else stands out at the moment to me for Cena on TV.

Edge/Orton Raw after Backlash, the Taker/Batista Cage Match, MVP/Benoit had a good match after Mania I believe, Punk/Morrison ECW Sept, and Taker/Finlay SD March. Edge/Benoit in June was fantastic.

ECW 8-man extreme rules tag right after Mania was a bunch of fun as was the Michaels/Edge street fight and the Edge/Orton/HBK match I mentioned. HHH/Flair had a very impressive TV match on Raw at the end of the year.

I remember:

-three-way with Umaga and Khali
-Cena/Edge from the draft where Edge got drafted (I think..)
-Benoit tapping to him.
-An "All Champions" match with Cena and Candice facing Umaga and Cade/Murdoch.
-The Battle Royal where he and Shawn won the belts.
-a No Way Out tag re-match.
-he got injured against Kennedy, right?


I doubt I'll find anything as good as Cena/Michaels 2 or Benoit/Edge, but it's worth a look. I'll probably comment in here. Speaking of which:

-----

Spoiler for Iron Man~!:
The Rock v HHH (WWF Judgment Day 5/21/00)
--I don't know if I want to say this felt like an hour, because that'd sound like an insult, but it definitely felt like an hour. In a good way. By the 25 minute mark both guys looked absolutely SPENT, and whether they were really tried or not (they were), it really got over the story of the match being 60 minutes long. And fuck me this was a great match. This was sort of a bunch of individual matches that make up one big match and one big story, without any breaks. First fall was really well done; Helmsley works the arm, guys go back and forth, and the Rock gets a quick Rock Bottom pinfall within ten minutes. It might bother someone that Hunter worked the arm and it went nowhere, but I'd rather think that Trip thought to go for the arm to start, and but by the time he gets pinned he's thinking "well that didn't work; I won't bother with the arm anymore". The outside stuff after the first fall was fine, but what it really sets up is the Rock putting a bullseye on HHH's leg by ramming it here and there. Loved the way Trip was selling it, too. Even when gets back in control it takes him forever to do a suplex or an elbow drop because of that leg. And the Rock has a major advantage because it doesn't matter how much Trip does to get back on offense, he can just kick the leg and have full control again. Long-ass figure four spot was worked really well too; Hunter was yelling for Shawn and punching the Rocks leg to try and get out of it, and then by the time they're in the ropes he looks like total mess with his elbow pads near his hands. Total mess? That was after the Rock after the Pedigree. All loopy and out of it, and I was actually pretty dumbfounded when Trip got another pinfall off of a cradle. I think that's one thing I actually really, really like about iron mans- stuff that doesn't end a match can end a fall, and the ref will be less lenient without count-outs and stuff. Except for Shawn Michaels, who said we ain't getting any BS double count-outs. DQs? He decides THAT''S fine when Trip goes the Rick Rude route and nails the Rock with a chair to get a good fall from him. I love that spot. And I love what it leads to- more loopy Rock! Guy's have been wrestling around 45 minutes by the time Trip swung the chair, and they look far, far more spent than they did at the 25 minute point. These aren't the kind of dudes who could "Ric Flair" and pull 60 minute matches out multiple times a week. The Rock bleeding off of the chair lets Trip use the sleeper to literally put him to sleep, and by then Trip is up 5-3 with a little over ten minutes to go. Crowd boo like mad and they make it seem like there's little possible way the Rock can fire a comeback in time since he looks dead with the blood on his head. His solution is to bloody HHH's head to match his own. hits his own Pedigree on the table and he says "fuck it. I'm desperate- I need a count-out". What I really loved about his was there weren't really any moments in the sixty minutes that were used to fill time or were just flat out boring. I saw sub-fifteen minute matches on the same card, and some of it was worthless shit. In this we have something ALWAYS going on, and I immediately thought that when the McMahons decided to step out. They just got whooped all over the place, obviously, but it leads to the big Undertaker return. Which is bittersweet. Sweet= Taker's back! He's kicking evil-people's arses! Bitter= shitty biker character...Shawn saw him.....he pretty much hand-fed the Title to HHH. Crowd boos. I don't, I thought HHH ruled in this. There's an enormous amount of flack against him, and I've been going to back to 2000..... thinking it's not as good as I thought it was, but he looked really great for this sixty minutes. Honestly it might be his career performance. Really close, at least. Is HHH's 2000 as good as 2 Cold Scorpio's 1996? No. Steven Regal's 1994? No. Rey Mysterio's 2006? No. I don't care, he was really fucking good here, he was really fucking good in 2000, THIS was really fucking good. Awesome match.

Yeah none of those matches are note-worthy other than the NWO re-match.

I'm pleased to see you enjoyed the Iron Man. I love that match and it's probably my favorite match of 2000. Rock and Hunter were awesome in it and the finish was glorious chaos!


Here's the MVP/Benoit match I was talking about - http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1v...?search_algo=1
