2005 is a top 5 year in wrestling history (match quality wise) ever IMO, bar none. You had the epic HHH-Batista story arc that went from NYR 2005 to VEN 2005 in one of the greatest blowoffs of all time , two fantastic HBK-Angle matches, the greatest multiman ladder match of all time in MITB I, Rey and Eddie tearing the house down multiple times throughout the year, Flair and Hunter basically killing one another in 2 big time PPV matches, the rise of John Cena, the great RAW-Smackdown feud, the edge-hardy situation, and my pick for feud of the year and one of the greatest feuds in the ruthless aggression era ; The Undertaker vs Randy Orton. I mean , DAMN , that's not even touching the surface as to how great this year was , a fantastic time to be a wrestling fan for sure. For TV matches we had the EPIC Rey-Eddie match, the first round of the gold rush tournament (a top 5 episode of raw ever IMO, two **** matches in one night is insane for a TV show) , the edge-Kane specialty matches, Taker-Orton , Taker-JBL streetfight, JBL-Angle LMS, and a whole fuckload of other awesome TV matches. My favorite year in wrestling ever, bar none. Speaking of Taker-Orton, I loved how the feud was basically a culmination of Ortons entire legend killer character, easily his best feud, and one of takers greatest feuds ever (which is saying ALOT) . I'll go more in depth about this later, writing this in the middle of a 3 hour drive on my IPhone , anybody know how to break things up into paragraphs on this thing ?
