After looking at the best WWE matches of the s, it is now time to look at the 10 best WWE matches of the decade. This decade also contained the legendary return of Shawn Michaels. I wanted to use this list to go over matches I have not really talked about on Wrestling Amino.
With all of that out of the way, it is finally time to look at the 10 best WWE matches of the s. This pick might be a bit controversial. Well, it is because this SummerSlam opener between Angle and Mysterio managed to pack so much action into a match that did not even exceed the 10 minute mark. Angle was his typical brilliant self, putting Mysterio in multiple submission holds and nailing fantastic suplexes. Although Rey eventually tapped out to the Ankle Lock, he was still able to establish himself as a legitimate force to be reckoned with in the WWE.
This is certainly one of the more brutal and hard-hitting Ladder matches in WWE history. There were plenty of notably brutal spots in this war for the Intercontinental Championship, such as Jericho countering a suicide dive from Benoit with a chair shot to the head and the Walls of Jericho on the top of a ladder.
After both men put on a hard-hitting Ladder match for the ages, Y2J was able to climb a ladder and retreive the Intercontinental Championship. This match was a of great things to come for both men, and while they battled for a midcard title in this match, both Jericho and Benoit would eventually become world champions in the coming years.
Chris Jericho and Rey Mysterio certainly have a long and storied history, dating all the way back to their days in the Cruserweight division of WCW. They have wrestled quite a few matches against each other over the years, and this one tops them all. Jericho and Mysterio were able put together a breathtaking match, showcasing their brilliant chemistry through amazing reversals and seamless sequences. Like Mysterio vs. Angle at SummerSlam , this match made the most out of the limited time it had, although it lasted 15 minutes and Mysterio vs. Angle only lasted 9. However, after Jericho was finally able to take off the mask, it was revealed that Mysterio had another mask underneath it, which was a fantastic twist.
With Jericho stunned, Mysterio was able to capitalize and hit the to win the Intercontinental Championship and keep his mask in the process. Austin and Triple H played their roles perfectly, being the ruthless heels who would do anything to retain their championships. Jericho and Benoit were the plucky underdogs looking to dethrone the villanous duo. Near the end of the match, Triple H accidentally tore his left quadriceps on a misstep, which would cost him over 8 months of his career, but he was still able to finish the match, even being locked in The Walls of Jericho shortly after suffering the injury, in an incredible display of toughness.
With the referee down, Triple H accidentally landed a sledgehammer shot on his own partner, allowing Jericho to pin Austin to a raucous ovation. The rivalry between Triple H and Mick Foley was nothing short of magnificent. It solidified The Game as perhaps the biggest star in the company and it produced some spectacular matches, such as their Hell in a Cell match at No Way Out Both men practically tried to murder each other in this war, which featured a crowd brawl, thumbtacks, and a 2x4 wrapped in barbed wire.
Although the fans wanted to see Cactus Jack capture the WWF Championship, the Cerebral Assassin would eventually be victorious after nailing a Pedigree onto thumbtacks. A brutal conclusion to a brutal match. Much like Triple H vs. Mick Foley, Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit was one of the very best WWE rivalries of the s. Both men were among the very best workers in the company, so fans knew that a PPV match between them would more than likely be an instant classic. Eventually, both men resorted to using their respective ature submission holds, with Benoit eventually submitting to the Ankle Lock.
Even though Angle came out victorious, both him and Benoit looked like a million bucks after putting on a match like this. The match was incredible, making sure that the TLC stipulation would be one that the WWE would come back to later down the line. In fact, the company did just that a couple of months later at WrestleMania X-7, holding the 2nd TLC match between the same 3 teams that took part in the 1st.
Somehow, this match was even more chaotic than the match at SummerSlam , with each team utilizing their respective ature weapons. Edge and Christian battered both opposing teams with chairs, The Hardy Boyz flung themselves off of ladders, and The Dudley Boyz put their opponents through tables. Orton was looking to cement himself as a true Legend Killer while Foley was looking to win the Intercontinental Championship for the 1st time in his legendary career. Much like the Street Fight between Cactus Jack and The Game, both competitors took some horrifying bumps during this match, such as Orton being slammed onto thumbtacks and Foley being bodyslammed onto a barbed wire board.
Both men also used a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire in their attempts to maim each other. Eventually, Orton was able to put Foley away with an RKO onto the baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and retain his Intercontinental Championship. If the goal of this match was to make the brand new WWE Tag Team Championships prestigious right off the bat, then it absolutely succeeded. All 4 men put on one of the greatest tag team matches in WWE history, featuring fantastic double team maneuvers from Edge and Mysterio and individual brilliance from Angle and Benoit. This match had everything one could hope for in a tag team match, such as brilliant action, unbelievable drama, hot tags, and breathtaking false finishes.
Eventually, both teams, along with Los Guerreros, would make up the SmackDown 6, and the 3 teams proceeded to put on fantastic match after fantastic match on Tuesday nights, and all 6 men would become future world champions in WWE. This was the match that epitomized perhaps the greatest era of tag team wrestling in WWE history.
WrestleMania X-7 is widely recognized as the greatest WrestleMania of all time, and rightfully so. It is only fitting that the greatest WrestleMania of all time ended with a clash between 2 of the biggest stars of the Attitude Era for the WWF Championship. Both men put on a perfect Attitude Era-style match, complete with a crowd brawl, brutal spots, and multiple near falls. Near the end of the match, for some reason, Vince McMahon entered the scene with a steel chair and was looking to cost The Rock his championship. While The Rock temporarily fended him off, Austin shockingly accepted the help of theman he once considered to be his mortal enemy.
