You know the drill. What matches do you consider great but don't get the praise they really deserve? Name as many as you want.

For now, I'll name one, and the one that comes to mind off the top of my head is Christian/Jericho from Wrestlemania 20. This was an incredible match given the time they had, it had a great storyline going into it, a great finish, great action, storytelling, lots of unique qualities about that match and yet you don't really see many people talk much about it. Easily a ****1/4 match, if not more. AND CHRISTIAN ACTUALLY WON IT.

Austin/Cactus/Funk/Owen vs Outlaws/Vega/Hunter from No Way Out 1998. I consider it a classic, it felt gritty, was highly entertaining, had some great spots, told a good story, the crowd loved it, etc. Almost never see it get any recognition from anyone, unfortunately.

Agree with all of these, especially the Hogan vs Luger WCW title defense from Nitro. I marked out when Luger beat Hogan with the Torture Rack and won the World Heavyweight title. It was an awesome moment.

... then he loses it 6 days later at Road Wild. :no:

I was 18 at the time and that match made me feel like a kid again. It was everything that Starrcade 97 Hogan/Sing should have been. Luger felt like such an underdog going in and the drama with all the interference he overcame was done brilliantly.Easily my favorite ending to a match during the time in WCW.

Billy Kidman & Rey Mysterio vs. Worlds Greatest Tag Team from Vengeance 2003. Everytime people talk about favorite tag matches this is never in the conversation.
:yes One of the best matches of 2003. They had another amazing tag match on Smackdown 8/14/03.


Here's another incredible match that is forgotten by most people:
