What are some awesome matches from WWE history that are underrated, overlooked or have generally fallen into obscurity since they were shown on Raw/Smackdown? And, as Batista would say, videos are not only welcomed..... they're allowed.

A few to get things rolling:

Bret Hart vs. 1-2-3 Kid (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pT1-H6GeeI), Raw 1994

Battallion, Tarantula & El Torito vs. Max Mini, Nova & Mosaic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C86m70BqA0w), Royal Rumble 1998

Edge vs.Chris Benoit vs. Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=abEBBQm9F_Y), Smackdown 2002 (Fatal Four Way Elimination)

Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle, Smackdown 2004 (60 minute Iron Man Match)

Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LH_XnyMo3L4), Raw 2007

Please allow me to give my infinite wisdom on this matter. One of my favorite matches that I think people overlooked at the time was Cactus Jack vs Randy Orton at backlash 2004. I went all the way to Alberta Canada to watch live in the front row and boy I am so glad I went. This match was brutal, Randy Orton became a legend that night. I have never heard grown men scream in agony than I did that night. It was truly special. Seeing All the tack's in Randys back was a sight I will never forget, not to mention he RKO'ed Mick's face right on top of a barbed wired bat right in front of me. Those were the days. Here are the highlights, enjoy. U MAD???

Oh yes, I completely forgot about that fantastic match as well, I'll need to re-watch it again later. Good times indeed.

On the subject of Cactus Jack, I think his street fight against Triple H at Royal Rumble 2000 gets very little respect, if only because it was overshadowed by their later Hell In a Cell match at No Way Out. I preferred their street fight match to be honest, easily a 5 star match for me.

As soon as I saw this topic, this is the match that sprung to mind.

Steiner bros v Beverly bros (royal rumble 93)

Awesome match! Steiners were always great, but the Beverly Bros were so underrated...one of my fave tag teams around that time actually.

Their gimmick wasn't too bad either (If a bit on the gay side lol) theres never been a team like them since. Theyre manager the genius is underrated as well, he could draw some real heat back then!
