Hogan vs. Andre on The Main Event and Hogan vs. Goldberg on Nitro are probably the two biggest free tv matches since WrestleMania started.

As for free tv matches that were important and had a high work rate, Bret vs. 123 Kid is one of the best, and I personally think HBK vs. Benoit was great too.

Hitman-Benoit on Nitro after the Owen death was a damn masterclass.

And I recall a classic Punk-Cena match on Raw to see who would face Rock at WM. Most obvious winner ever but that made the match that much more impressive.

The immediate pick was Cena vs. HBK from London in 2007. Then the Brock/Kurt Ironman match. Then I opened the topic to find those exact two matches in the OP.

Bit too tired to really search through the vault of everything I've seen, so I'll just nominate some recent ones:

Adam Cole vs. Daniel Bryan on Smackdown
Shayna Bazsler vs. Rhea Ripley on NXT
Basically every match Rey Mysterio and Andrade have had.

Cena/Punk.

After all the history they had, Punk delivering that piledriver was amazing. There are plenty of others but this one was the first one that came to mind.

LOL, I didn't think anyone else was watching TV. Thanks to the Internet, we are able to access a huge amount of information for development. Instead, someone is still sitting on the couch watching TV.

There are a whole bunch, but one relatively recent one was the Ronda-Nattie match. That was probably the best match of Rousey's year, and it was barely even a big deal.

Can we count NXT TV? The 2 out 3 falls match between Cesaro and Sami Zayn was a huge eye opener to me for Cesaro. That's what made him my favorite wrestler at the time.

Then, Cena v Cesaro for the US title. That was a 20 minute match and the crowd went nuts. May have been in London or Canada; I mostly remember it not being in the states.

Great input. You have 1 post in 10 months and looked like an ass.
