Hogan vs. Warrior --- WM VI

I was there, too! Man, what an experience that was. To get, not an arena, but a huge football stadium that loud, which we all know is more difficult from a noise aspect in a bigger venue, is pretty wild looking back at it. Greatest match I've ever seen in person.If I recall correctly the only time Lesnar & Angle were both faces against each other was at Vengeance 2003 and that was a triple threat match with The Big Show. Their other matches one man worked heel and the other face: WM 19 Angle (heel) / Lesnar (face), SummerSlam Angle (face) / Lesnar (heel), SD Iron Man Match Angle (face), Lesnar (heel).
My answer to the thread topic is Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 25. Both men are my favorite wrestlers and they created art as they perform in what is the best match I ever saw. I'm extra biased because I was live in attendance to witness this truly epic battle go down.
Oh Cena was definitely heel in that match. Cena was like the antithesis of everything ECW stood for. He was a pariah in that buildingRob Van Dam Vs John Cena ONS 06...
I mean I guess they were both faces... Though they didn't treat Cena like it.
For as long as I live I will feel that moment.I was there, too! Man, what an experience that was.

HBK/Taker WM 26 deserves a shout, too.
I was at that one, too. :lol I think Shawn/Taker have the best in-ring chemisty of anyone in WWE history. They are the only ones that are on the same level as that Flair/Steamboat chemistry (or at least somewhere close, depending on opinion), which is really saying something. The fact that they had 3 incredible matches in HIAC '97, WM 25, and WM 26. And the fact that their 'secondary/forgotten' matches are good matches like Royal Rumble '98, IYH: Ground Zero is pretty incredible, too.For as long as I live I will feel that moment.
You damn right the WM 26 deserves a shout. I was live in attendance for that show too. Shawn & Taker had more storytelling to present off build and sheer emotion. What an magnificent moment it was to see Shawn Michaels go out on HIS terms, at the top of his game, in the main event of WrestleMania in a blaze of glory. It doesn't get any better than that for a closing chapter of a legendary in-ring career.
I actually liked the heel turn. :draper2Yeah, I came in to say this. It's my all time favorite build that unfortunately lead to the worst heel turn of all time, and the eventual downfall of the Attitude Era.

It made perfect sense from a storyline perspective imo. Dumb part was having him turn heel in Texas, where people were going to cheer him regardless of what he did.
