Default Most Famous Match w/o controversy

Basically, as the title says. What's the most famous match without some backstage politics or famous botched spot.

Example:
Undertaker vs Mankind, Hell In A Cell 1998, I'll mark this as something that I wouldn't accept as an answer because Foley wasn't intended to go through the cell and take the second big fall, and that big fall lead to the match being so famous as well as the first fall.

CM Punk vs John Cena, Money In The Bank 2011, While this was built off CM Punk's worked shoot and probable backstage negotiations of Punk's return the match was still phenomenal, but a lot had to do with the build and aftermatch.

Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart, Survivor Series 1997, Obvious.

I'm looking for more along the lines of a Hogan vs Andre, WM3 type of thing.


For me, I'd have to say Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels, WM25. I know people will say Undertaker's fall was a big botched spot that lead to it's reception, but I'll argue that HBK's missed moonsault was done to foreshadow Undertaker's miss, thus making it a planned spot.


Just interested in seeing what people say. If needed this can be moved to the classic thread.

Hogan vs Andre. Most people I talk to about wrestling will mention that because it's pretty much all they know.

If you don't count the infamous handshake at the end. I'll go with Rock/Austin at WM17. Hogan/Andre is a pretty obvious choice as well, as that is a commonly known match.

I think Rock vs Austin WM17 actually fits, I didn't even take into account heel turns, but now that it's mentioned how about Bret Hart vs Steve Austin at Mania 13.

Is it too soon to throw in Cena vs Rock at Mania 28? The buyrate was huge, the winner was unexpected and it had over a year of build. The match didn't get bad reviews, but it wasn't amazing either, but it's not like Hogan vs Andre was a great match either. Actually, I think I like Andre vs Hogan at WM4 better.

Of course Mankind was supposed to go through the second time. Go back and watch it and when he first falls to the mat you can see black plastic clips all around him, the camera angle changes and when it goes back to Mick the clips are gone, thank you Mr Funk

Foley has said that he was supposed to take the first fall, but he wasn't supposed to fall through the cage. Undertaker thought he killed him. So, I'm basing it from that.
