I've watched plenty and can't quickly come up with any specific favorites. I love the stipulation, though.
Matt Hardy vs Edge from Unforgiven 2005 is my personal favorite. The storytelling in that match is great and the action is just as good. Lots of blood which was needed for their heated feud, Lita getting involved, and Hardy's leg drop from the top of the cage to end it was one of the greatest things I've seen in wrestling. Hardy was at his peak during this time, he didn't get any higher than his feud with Edge and this feud helped Edge on his rise to the top.

Other cage matches I like are: Chris Jericho vs Christian on RAW, Edge vs Cena on RAW, Randy Orton vs Ric Flair from Taboo Tuesday..

All those matches listed can be found on the greatest steel cage matches DVD (which I have).

Magnum/Tully or the Final Conflict for the best cage match. If I had to guess which I'd like more on a re-watch, I'd put money on Magnum/Tully.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Flair/Morton was so good the first time I watched I was so into the action it took a while to realize there was no commentary. I thought they worked the injury into the match well too. Some good visuals of the crimson mask and plenty of intensity.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Oh crap yeah thanks for reminding me, I forgot Flair/Morton. Probably Flair at his most purely EVIL. That could be #2 for cages and if not it's definitely #3. #4 at absolute absolute absolute minimum. People need to watch Flair/Dusty as well.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Flair is just awesome in cage matches. His Halloween Havoc match with Hogan in 1994 was pure fun ride to watch. Flair/Orton from Taboo Tuesday 04 was a bit short for me but really good. The handshake at the end was a great moment.

However, I always thought the highly acclaimed Flair/Race Starrcade '83 was good too but not one of the greatest cage matches ever.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Yeah Race/Flair isn't THAT good. They have way better matches without any stipulations (though I'm pretty sure they bleed and brawl just the same).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

That's funny that we started talking about Cage Matches, as I was in the middle of compiling a list of all the aired Cage matches in WWE history to make a top 25.. Off the top of my head the GOAT Cage match is Trips-Flair TT 05 with a few coming very, very close. That's probably going to change as I get deeper into this however. I know one thing for certain, it takes a fucking LONGGG time to just compile a list of all the aired cage matches, let alone actually WATCH them (have a majority of them already rated in notepad anyways so that helps)





"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

If we're talking WWE only then I think Backlund/Slaughter destroys everything pretty easily. I can't think of any that come close. Hardy/Edge is one of those matches I know is great, but I don't see "IT" in it. Another "I'll Watch It Again Sometime" match.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Pfft, everyone knows Angle/Benoit is the GOAT WWE Cage Match.

You can take a look at Hogan/Orndorff SNME 87, Savage/DiBiase MSG 88, Steiners/Money Inc Summerslam Spectacular 8/23/93, and Christian/Jericho Raw 5/10/04 for your list.
