Whether purely in WWE, ECW or Impact, what're RVD's best matches?

I thought this could be interesting since I see Van Dam as a potential HOF candidate in the upcoming HOF. Considering Kurt just went in, I don't think RVD is too far off from being inducted.

The dude had a marvellous career, it was a shame it took WWE as long as it did to put the World title on him. It was an even bigger shame when Van Dam got busted for possession and had to lose both the WWE and ECW championships prior to getting suspended and eventually leading to his way out of the company in an eventual stretcher match with Orton.

Anyways, what're some of your favourite or in your opinion, best RVD matches in his career?

I tried YouTubing for Jerry Lynn/RVD matches but they're all just highlights :( I was too young to see those matches.

I loved RVD vs John Cena at One Night Stand '06, it's the intensity of the crowd that made that match amazing even with the screw finish.

Was also a bit too young to see RVD's ECW matches in his prime. Plan to work through some ECW events at some point soon, but I've seen a few. Of the handful I've seen, I'd recommend them all:

RVD/Sabu vs. Hayabusa/Jinsei Shinzaki- Heatwave 1998
RVD vs. Sabu- Guilty As Charged 2000
RVD vs. Jerry Lynn- Hardcore Heaven 2000

I loved RVD in WWE. That was my first exposure to him, so to me it was all fantastic. Same deal with Rey Mysterio in 2002.

RVD vs. Jeff Hardy- Invasion 2001
RVD vs. Undertaker- Vengeance 2001
RVD vs. Eddie Guerrero- Backlash 2002
RVD vs. Eddie Guerrero- Judgment Day 2002
RVD vs. Chris Jericho- King Of The Ring 2002
RVD vs. Brock Lesnar- Vengeance 2002
RVD vs. Chris Benoit- Summerslam 2002
Elimination Chamber- Survivor Series 2002
RVD vs. Christian- Ladder Match- Raw 2003
Team Austin vs. Team Bischoff- Survivor Series 2003 (okay, RVD's role in this isn't that big. But it's just a great match)

(Bit of a gap here as I'm currently working through 2004-2005 on the Network)

MITB Ladder Match- Wrestlemania 22
RVD vs John Cena- ECW One Night Stand 2006
RVD vs. Edge- Vengeance 2006
RVD vs. Edge vs. Cena- Raw 2006
RVD vs. Hardcore Holly- Extreme Rules- ECW on Sci-Fi
ECW Originals vs. New Breed- Extreme Rules- ECW on Sci-Fi
