What are your top 5 favorite matches in wrestling history.

My 5 favorite matches are
The Rock Vs Mankind I Quit Match: WWF Championship (Royal Rumble 1999) - Hands down my favorite match ever. Fucking love this match. If I was ever going to suggest a wrestling match to a non wrestling fan, this would be the match I would suggest.

The Rock vs Triple H Singles Match: WWF Championship (Backlash 2000) - This match was awesome, the wrestling was great, the chemistry between HHH and Rock was great, and the ending with Stone Cold coming back and raising hell really made it all the more better.

Shane McMahon Vs Kurt Angle Street Fight (King of the Ring 2001) - I've always been a big fan of Shane McMahon. He might not be the best wrestler in the world, but he always put on an entertaining matches. His match with Kurt Angle at KotR 01 is probably one of, if not his best match. Although i'm sure some might consider his match with AJ Styles at this year's Wrestlemania instead. But this match is one of my favorite

TLC and TLC 2 (Summerslam/Wrestlemania 17) - So technically I'm cheating here by having two matches in the same line, but they both happened within the same year, so i decided to keep the both. The matches Edge & Christian, The Hardyz and the Dudleyz put on together were awesome, and it was these matches that made the tag team division at the time worth watching.

Undertaker Vs Shawn Michaels Streak Match (Wrestlemania 26) - Shawn Michaels retirement match, it was awesome. Everything worked for this match, and the chemistry between Undertaker and HBK was amazing.

So those are my top 5 anyway. I realize some of them probably wouldn't be ranked among the greatest matches of all time, but for me they were my favorite. Each to their own I guess, but those are my favorite anyway.
