In that case it would have been (in no particular order):

Chris Benoit vs. The Rock (Fully Loaded 2000)
Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle (WrestleMania X-Seven)
Chris Benoit & Chris Jericho vs. Triple H & Stone Cold (RAW 21/05/2001)
Chris Benoit & Kurt Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero (Vengeance 2003)
Chris Benoit vs. Brock Lesnar (SmackDown 02/05/2003)
Chris Benoit vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels (WrestleMania XX)
Chris Benoit vs. Randy Orton (SummerSlam 2004)
Chris Benoit in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match (WrestleMania 21)
Chris Benoit vs. William Regal (Velocity 12/07/2005)
Chris Benoit vs. MVP (WrestleMania 23)

It's also a damn shame that we never got to see Benoit vs. Punk for the ECW Championship, because I can guarantee that would have been a 5-star match. There would have been 11 years between Benoit and Punk in 2007, but Benoit would have absolutely been able to keep up with Punk and arguably out class him.
Aha yes! Some Velocity love! Great match. Just wondering, did you ever see their Brian Pillman Memorial match?

One of the great what-ifs? Sadly we'll never know but I've a feeling Chris would've tested the skin on Punk's chest like no-one before him.

Absolutely. I loved Velocity, some wild stuff happened on there if you took the time to watch WWE's C show. Not only was there the Benoit/Regal match, but I'm pretty sure it was on Velocity where Paul London had botched something, fell backwards off the top rope and split his head open on the ring steps. It was a pretty nasty bump. I'd have to double check if that was Velocity.

Also, do you remember Gunner Scott (Brent Albright), Benoit's brief protege? He worked a little with CM Punk in OVW back in 2005 around the time Punk first came in (infamously as a, to quote Colt Cabana, balloon of a wrestler after he attempted to bulk up for the big leagues). They had quite a strange Strap Match for the OVW title. He was pretty good.

I'd also like to add another Benoit match in there actually. He had a great tag team match at No Mercy 2002 when he partnered with Angle to take on Edge and Rey for the debuting SmackDown Tag Team titles.

And I actually haven't watched the Pillman memorial match, I'll have to check it out! Is it the 3rd Annual Pillman 2000 show for the Intercontinental title? Here's hoping I can find it on the Network.

My favourite wrestler is Randy Savage, and I notice we have a crossover of 3 matches (including the coveted #1 spot).

1. Savage / Warrior (WM7)
2. Savage / Hogan (WM 5)
3. Savage / Steamboat (WM 3)
4. Savage / Warrrior (SS 1992)
5. Savage / HBK (UK Rampage 1992)
6. Savage / Flair (WM8 )
7. Savage / DDP (GAB 1997)
8. Savage / Bret Hart (SNME)
9. Savage / Warrior (Steel Cage)
10. Savage / Santana (? 1986)

To be fair any of Savage’s DDP matches could’ve made my list, as they were all fun.

I'm interested to hear your take on this. There had been violent bloodbaths in WWE in the years leading up to that, in 2005 (the Batista/HHH Hell in a Cell) and 2006 (the DX/McMahons/Big Show cell match). So what exactly do you consider the PG era? Late 2006 to mid-2008?

and we have those matches in the same spots in our lists! i love savage too...he is second to warrior for me. and that's why i have him in 3 of the 10 on my list. their chemistry was just incredible and i really believe that savage brought the best out of warrior. the whole build to WMVII was just brilliant to the point that it's one of the only matches where warrior doesn't run to the ring. you just knew that the stakes were high and warrior sold it. in my opinion it was better than the hogan/slaughter match that night. and of course the reuniting w/ Elizabeth afterwards was the icing on the cake. when you really look back you can see how much effort they put into the story lines, something that just seems non existent nowadays.

after all this talk about that match it just reaffirms that it's my favorite match of all time, not just warriors favorite match.
