What are your favorite WWE matches in recent memory? Maybe since the Attitude Era. You can list 3, 5, however many you want. For me, this is a hard question, so I'll edit this OP with my choices in just a lil.

When I think of my favorite matches ever, some that come to mind are (in no order):

-E&C Vs Dudleyz Vs Hardyz at WM16, SS2000, and WM17
-Austin Vs Rock at WM17 and WM19
-HHH Vs Foley at NWO2000
-HHH Vs Rock at JD2000
-Undertaker Vs HBK at WM25 and WM26
-Undertaker Vs HHH at WM27 and WM28
-HHH Vs HBK at BB2004
-Cena Vs HBK at WM23
-Cena Vs HHH at WM22
-Batista Vs HHH at WM21
-Guerrero Vs Lesnar at NWO2004

-Cena Vs HHH at WM22
-Batista Vs HHH at WM21
-Guerrero Vs Lesnar at NWO2004
Would you mind telling me why you left out Taker vs HHH at WM 17? Was it because:

1. You forgot to list it.

2. You didn't consider it one of your favorite matches.

3. You bought WWE declaring that Triple H only fought Taker twice at Mania: 27 & 28.

Please do explain, because I really like and agree with your list but I'd add:

- Taker vs Batista at WM 23, Backlash 2007, Steel Cage, Cyber Sunday 2007, and Survivor Series 2007.
- Taker vs Edge at WM 24, ONS 2008, and Summerslam 2008.
- Taker vs Flair at WM 18.
- Taker vs Orton at WM 21.
- Taker vs Angle at No Way Out 2006.
- Jericho vs Benoit at Royal Rumble 2001.

It just didn't come to mind when I thought of all these matches. I loved HHH Vs Taker at WM17 tho. AWESOME match!

Triple H vs Undertaker - Wrestlemania XXVIII
The Rock vs John Cena - Wrestlemania XXVIII
CM Punk vs Dolph Ziggler - RAW, January 2012 (iirc)
Orton vs Rhodes - Smackdown, December 2011 (again, iirc)
Orton vs Christian - Summerslam 2011
CM Punk vs John Cena - MiTB
Del Rio vs Christian - Extreme Rules
Del Rio vs Edge - Wrestlemania XXVII
Smackdown Elimination Chamber - Elimination Chamber
Ziggler vs Edge - Royal Rumble 2011

LOL, I know - there are people listing matches from eight years ago. That would be like calling Wrestlemania 8 "recent memory" while watching Wrestlemania 16. In recent memory, I'm rating Cena/Punk from last year and Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage from Wrestlemania V.

The Smackdown MITB match 2011. Tremendous match that gets a bit overshadowed by Cena v Punk.

IMO the SD MITB match was equal MOTN, great pace, great unpredictability and the winner was in doubt until the last second.
