It's hard to say whats the best TV match ever, but I can tell you at least 2 of the best I've seen myself at the time that they happened. Both of them were Owen Hart vs. The British Bulldog, and both were on RAW. The first one is a qualifying match for the '95 KOTR in which went to a time limit draw(I can't find this match). The second is of course the finals of the European Title Tournament.

I don't know that it was the best TV match from a wrestling standpoint but the TLC on Raw where Kane defended the Tag titles by himself was probably the one I enjoyed the most. Wrestling-wise, I would have to say that any match featuring Benoit and Angle has to be pretty high on the list.

Benoit/Jericho vs. Triple H/Austin for the Tag Team Titles on RAW in 2001 was certainly a memorable match.

TLC 3 on SmackDown! in 2001 was EPIC.

They're the two that stand out to me.

Owen Hart vs Davey Boy Smith in the European championship finals is one that sticks out. There have been so many good tv matches that it's hard to pick and so many that it is hard to remember some.

I enjoyed Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair from WWF Primetime back in the day. I saw that when i was like 7 and realized that Michaels was my favorite wrestler. He lost by countout i believe.

I'll mention a few:

-Shawn Michaels vs. Davey Boy Smith in early March of 1995, I believe, in the weeks leading to Wrestlemania XI. Just a very well-realized match from both men.

-Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Kurt Angle, January 8, 2001 from San Jose. I was there and it's a highly underrated, almost forgotten classic. Angle suplexes Austin nearly to death.

-Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H vs. Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho, May 21, 2001 from San Jose. Was there again. Completely blown away.

-Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena, April 2007 from London

-Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger, September 17, 2010 Smackdown; just watched it again and still think it's marvelous

This match crossed my mind when I first posted. I remember it like yesterday, the same night that HBK brought Sid in as his Bodyguard.

Yep, it was a great match. Very memorable, in part for the reason you mention.

I very much liked RVD vs Eddie Guerrero ladder match. That was an insane bout. They both gave it their all (as usual with these two)

ALso worth mentioning is the Angle vs Benoit cage match.

And idd Power trip vs Jericho en Benoit !

I also remember me enjoying an extremely good fatal four way Edge vs Rhyno vs Benoit vs Jericho dating from 2001 on smackdown.

In no particular order

Austin and Triple H vs. Jericho and Benoit
Jeff Hardy vs. The Undertaker - Ladder Match
Michaels vs. Cena
four Corner TLC match on Smackdown - Jericho and Benoit v.s Dudleys vs. Hardys vs. EC
Angle vs. Lesnar - Ironman
Punk vs. Morrison - ECW - 15 minutes of fame

There are probably more but I don't remember them.

I went post for post because I didn't want to mention this match, then got to the last one and it's there haha, agree with that one.

Foley winning the title wasn't a great wrestling match, but it was terrific television.

I remember being very impressed by a Kane and Kurt Angle match some years ago.

I think my all time favorite was Shawn Michaels Vs. Triple H at the tail end of 2003. Hell of a match.
