Almost every major star in the history of wrestling, put Macho Man, Hart and Andre in there and it's perfect.
Definitely that one.

Was gonna also say WM19. The card was stacked with some of the biggest stars of all time, including five main event styel matches.

Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle: WWE Title
Triple H vs. Booker T: World Title
Hulk Hogan vs. Vince McMahon: Street Fight
The Rock vs. Steve Austin III
Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho

WrestleManis 19 or 20.

not really sure why people are saying WM 19 is underrated though. pretty sure most have it in their top 3-5 WMs.

SummerSlam 2002. 15 of the 18 wrestlers were once or future world champions. The only exceptions were Lance Storm, Goldust, and Test. WrestleMania XIX is close with 15 out of 21. More importantly, they were both very, VERY good events.

Yeah WM 19 had a stacked card. I can't think of any other card that was like that.

Maybe not a stacked card per se, but look at the names on this card:

WM X8:

Mr. Perfect
Lance Storm
Rob Van Dam
William Regal
DDP
Christian
Edge
Booker T
Kane
Kurt Angle
The Undertaker
Ric Flair
Steve Austin
Scott Hall
Kevin Nash
APA
Hardy Boyz
Dudley Boyz
The Rock
Hulk Hogan
Triple H
Chris Jericho

That's a who's who in wrestling history. Only missing Michaels, Guerrero, Benoit

don't look at the match quality, but on name value alone I'd say WM20 is BIGGER than 19. although this is in hindsight. obviously Orton/Tista weren't big stars at the time, but given what they went onto be. if you were a kid looking at the card on Wikipedia in 20 years and didn't know that Orton/Batista weren't really big stars at the time your mind would be blown.

Shawn Michaels - 4x World Champ
Triple H - 13x World Champ
Chris Benoit - 1x World Champ
Undertaker - 7x World Champ
Kane - 2x World Champ
Kurt Angle - 6x World Champ
Eddie Guerrero - 1x World Champ
Steve Austin - 6x World Champ
Brock Lesnar - 3x World Champ
Bill Goldberg - 1x World Champ
Mick Foley - 3x World Champ
Randy Orton - 9x World Champ
Ric Flair - 21x World Champ
Batista - 6x World Champ
Chris Jericho - 6x World Champ
Christian - 2x World Champ
Booker T - 6x World Champ
RVD - 1x World Champ
Big Show - 2x World Champ
John Cena - 12x World Champ
Rey Mysterio - 3x World Champ
JBL - 1x World Champ

thats over 100 combined world title reigns.

If WWE play their cards right WrestleMania 28 could be right up there.

XIX was the first thing that came to my mind, but if you take out the diva match and tag titles (even though you've got two world champions in Miz & Big Show), then XXVI has huge matches all the way through.
