well as you know guys we are coming to the end of the noughties decade and i just want to know in your opinion, what has been the greatest match you have seen this decade. taking into acount that we've seen so many epic storylines with the alliance, stone cold ran over, ric flair as co owner, the return of the nwo and of course the undertaker returning to the darkside. ive got to say my personal choice would have to be the rock vs stone cold steve austin at wrestlemania 17. that is probably the greatest match i have ever seen, and ive been watching wrestling for a long time. there was so much riding on it and it boasted arguably the greatest 2 wrestlers of all time.
what was your match of the decade?

I can't pick 1...but I will give my top 5. I have taken into account what the match meant at the time but also the actual quality of the match itself. Both were weighted equally:

1) The Rock vs. Steve Austin - Wrestlemania X-Seven (Although I love their match from Wrestlemania XIX more...X-Seven was bigger.)
2) Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania XIX
3) The Rock vs. "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan - Wrestlemania X8
4) Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania 25
5) Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania 21

Honorable Mentions:
6) Chris Benoit vs. Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels - Wrestlemania XX
7) Triple H vs. Steve Austin - No Way Out 2001
8) Triple H vs. Cactus Jack - Royal Rumble 2000
9) Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle - Royal Rumble 2003
10) The Rock vs. Chris Jericho - No Mercy 2001

No need to be smart and cardinal. I'm sure he means 2000-2010 regardless how he words it.

As for me, I can't go with a standout number 1 so i'll just give a few honourable mentions off the top of my head.

Royal Rumble 2000 - Triple H v Cactus Jack
Backlash 2004 - Randy Orton vs Mick Foley - The match that made Randy Orton the man he is today, he owes a fucking lot to Foley.
WM17 - Hardyz v E+C v Dudleys
WM17 - The Rock v Austin
WM18 - Hollywood Hogan v The Rock - Probably my greatest match of all time because of what it stood for, so I guess i'll go with this actually.
WM20 - Chris Benoit v Triple H v Shawn Michaels - Easily the greatest triple threat of all time.
WM21 - Angle vs Shawn Michaels
WM25 - Undertaker v Shawn Michaels

As was already alluded to, 2010 was the first year of the 10's, not the last year of the 00's.

But anyway, Match of the Decade was Rock/Hogan at WrestleMania 18. Certainly not for its wrestling, but for its drama, its glamor, and its historical significance.

Agreed. There has obviously been better wrestling matches, but this was truly a dream match and one of the most significant matches of all time.

1. Angle vs HBK - best match of all time.

2. The Rock vs Stone Cold - Incredible drama/story

3. HHH vs KBK vs Benoit WM 20

4. Taker vs HBK WM 25.

Ironic that I've got 3 HBK matches in there even though I think he's overated.
