Angle & HBK...The Mania 21 is one of my all times favs. & Vengeance lived upto the re-match hype....

Shawn selling the ankle lock in Mania 21 was for 90 sec.+ was one of the best Selling moments I have seen..

Wow, great picks. Sammartino vs. Spiro Arion in, I believe, March 1976, is one of the best matches I have ever seen in my entire life. Truly spectacular.

Also, to the thread in general: Rock vs. Austin is one of the most overrated series ever. If we're counting their midcard matches, they were nothing special with Austin destroying Rock over and over. Their first Wrestlemania match is at best "okay" for what it is--on a show that hideously poor in wrestling content, it looks like Steamboat vs. Savage but it's not a particularly good match and one of the participants (Austin) more or less hates it. Their Backlash '99 match was dramatically better, and I liked some of the inventive spots, but it's not exactly a masterpiece, either. Wrestlemania X-7 is definitely the apex of this series, and just a very gutsy brawl that throws just about everything but the kitchen sink in. Wrestlemania XIX is fun for what it is, and that is, for its second half especially, a bunch of finishers stitched together. They were the two biggest stars in wrestling for a big portion of this series, but the series itself isn't the end all, be all of the industry.

You're all wrong! It's clearly the Cena/Khali series! It was the Hulk/Andre rivalry of our generation!

Re: What do you think is the best match series of all-time?

Are you kidding me? YOu have to have Steamboat vs Flair, no doubt, this Guys were doing Matches in the 80's, that to this day are untouchable. I also would say The British Bulldogs vs The Hart Foundation, HBK vs Bret Hart, Bret vs Owen, HBK vs HHH, HBK vs Taker, Angle vs Lesnar, Eddie vs Rey, just to name a few.

If you want to do all the steps once you might fall, you might not be able to stand up, you might not be able to pick yourself up mentally, failing is hard, failing everything at once is even more devastating, its the feeling of have given it all in every aspect, but in reality you fooled yourself to believe your God, a man has only an amount of energy to accomplish what he wants, if you dont learn to pace yourself you will lose the ability to stand back up maybe for good.

Re: What do you think is the best match series of all-time?

Personally I'm a mark for the Hardyz/Dudleyz/E&C series of matches. They had so many around 2000 that were such good amtches and at the time I'd never seen anything like it, so as a teenager I was loving it! They met in table matches, ladder matches, tlc matches, cage matches, standard matches, survivor series elimination matches, 4 ways, etc. etc. etc.

Re: What do you think is the best match series of all-time?

Imo I think all of the list has produced great matches in all of them. My personal favourite would be Taker/HBK for (Hell in a cell, WM25, WM26)
