I voted for Bryan/HHH because that match meant a lot to me personally, but objectively Bret/Owen wins.

The holy trinity of opening matches is in no particular order: brian pillman v. Jushin "thunder" liger at wcw superbrawl II(1992), bret v. owen at wrestlemania X(1994), rey mysterio v. Eddie Guerrero at Halloween havoc,(1997). I like all of these, but give the edge to pillman liger, dolue to the time frame of this match.

Not necessarily my pick but Malenko/Scotty 2 Hotty from Backlash 2000 was pretty good for an opener.

1.Hart vs Hart- WM10
2.HHH vs Bryan- WM30
3.Angle vs Mysterio- SS02

Bret Hart vs Owen Hart is a legit ***** match in my book, so of course that this match is my pick

WCW Did tend to have amazing opening matches, especially from 1996-1997.

Bash At The Beach 1996 may be famous for Hogan's heel turn, but the opening match between Rey Misterio Jr and Psychosis was an excellent start

Rey vs Eddie at Halloween Havoc 1997 was also great.

Bret v, Owen is also my favorite WrestleMania and WWF PPV opener to this day.

edit: Wait, Rey vs. Eddie wasn't first, but the opening match was Yuji Nagata vs. Ultimo Dragon, which wasn't awful, either

HHH vs Bryan is the best IMO.

Oh, Angle/Mysterio from Summerslam 2002 is definitely up there, if not #1. Others I'd mention:
- Hart/Hart, Wrestlemania X
- MITB for the WHC, Money in the Bank 2011
- HHH/Bryan, Wrestlemania XXX
- Eddie/Benoit, Vengeance 2003
- Bryan/Wyatt, Royal Rumble 2013
- MITB, Wrestlemania 23

Bret/Owen is the only opener I have ever given 5 stars to, so it gets the nod here. Although there are some outstanding matches listed there.
