Top 10 Matches of the 21st Century

Rating: 5 votes, 2.80 average.
Welcome back to Wrestling is Bischoff!!!! Today we are discussing a topic everybody has an opinion on. We all have different ones and most vary from generation to generation. So each one I will List the match and show it was at, Along with a brief description why it made the list.

10:Shawn Micheals vs JBL
No Way Out 2009
All or Nothing
A Really shocking moment that I'm sure even the kiddos remember. Shawn Micheals addressed how the "financial crisis" took a hit on him and he sold his soul to the devil. Well maybe not the devil, but JBL. You had HBK being a personal escort for JBL and him even laying down so his boss could become #1 contender. Then at Royal rumble he Sweet Chins JBL leading to a match that would either grant Micheals his pay and freedom or he worked forever for nothing for Layfield.

9:Edge vs Undertaker
One Night Stand 2008
TLC: Title vs Career
I believe that Edge's feud with Undertaker over the year of '08 was the best of his career.With Vickie at the control panel anything and everything could happen and it did. From Undertaker tombstoning Vickie to her banning the gates of hell, it all went down. But a match that left us all in awe. The Undertaker was close to winning the title so many times until La Familia came out through Undertaker off a ladder through a table. Which would "kill' the Deadman's career.

8:Sting vs Ric Flair
WCW Monday Nitro 2001
Final Main Event
I don't even think this needs a description. The end of the Monday Night Wars was a moment we all will remember. It was an awesome match and what a way to end it all but with these 2 facing off.

7:Edge and Christian vs Hardy Boyz vs The Dudleys
Wrestlemania 17 2001
This match skyrocketed all the men involved. This triple Threat TLC match for the WWF Tag Titles. Who can forget that moment where Edge speared Jeff Hardy from a ladder.If Edge wouldn't have hit it perfectly we would have seen the end of his career or life, which makes it the more entertaining honestly.

6:The Rock vs John Cena
Wrestlemania 28 2012
Once or Twice in a Lifetime
Everybody has that one dream match they want to happen whether it be Punk vs Austin or Sting vs Taker, the term is thrown around alot. I believe almost everyone was ecstatic that the most electrifying man in all of entertainment(pun no extra charge) was coming back for another match. Though it catches alot of slack it was a all in all good match.

5: The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin
Wrestlemania 17
The end of Attitude
I guess the saying could be used here to "Rock screwed Rock". Holy S--T! What the F--K is going on!!! Why is Stone Cold selling out? Those phrases came out of every fan in the nation.We all hated Steve raising the hand of Vince.

The last four need no explaination

4: Chris Jericho vs Shawn Micheals
Great American Bash 2008
Eye for an Eye

3: CM Punk vs John Cena
Money in the Bank 2011
Walking out with the title

    I did things such as all-times in the past, all you get is negative reviews. I don't agree with the list, especially with JBL vs HBK on the list. You think WM26 was bigger than 25, but I believe it is the other way around even though HBK retirement involvement. 1st time they faced off in so many years, Mr.Wrestlemania vs Wrestlemania streak, 2 future hall of famers, in their hometowns, biggest stage of them all. I also disagree with WM17 being bigger or better than WM2000 triangle ladder match because I hated the involvement of Lita, Rhino, and Spike Dudley.

    How Cena winning the WWE title for the first time at WM21 isn't on here is beyond me....same goes for RVDs first WWE title win at One Night stand. How the hell Rock vs Hogan didn't make the cut is beyond me. Some of these matches especialy the honorable mention is laughable. JBL vs Big Show? JBL vs Cena Great American Bash? I could continue, but you get the point. Introduction of Elimination Chamber in 02; Crowning first Undisputed champion;

    I may leave a list later of my top 10 later.

    Thegreatone is right about how these lists get negative reactions, but (devils advocate) wrestlingisbischoff was one of the few to specify that his list was his personal opinion and not the word of god (lol). I think you should've followed through with the explanations on the top 4, it almost looks like you got tired and phoned in the rest of it. My only criticism of the list is that it needs more HBK WM matches, plus the HHH-UT match from WM 28. And yes, the WM 25 taker-HBK match was superior to 26 no doubt.

    I too agree with TheGreatOne and Kajmere; most are just going to bash on such lists. To each his own and some great matches/memorable moments. Can't say I would pick most, but not my list. Perhaps what we need is a few people to get together, pick a match, why it should be in top 10 and people can vote for a winner...

    I'm going to keep in line with the three guys above me. I wouldn't have listed a lot of these matches on my top 10 but to each his own. Who am I to say your opinion is wrong?

    My personal favorite match of all time is Cactus Jack vs. HHH Rumble 2000.
    I'd have Taker/Michaels 1 over Taker/Michaels 2.
    I'd have Cena/Lesnar over HHH/Lesnar.
    Jericho/Michaels from No Mercy 2008 over their match from Bash 2008.
    I'd add as an honorable mention Punk/Cena from Raw earlier this year.


    Hogan/Rock over the pretty awful Hogan/Orton.
    Would maybe throw in Sheamus/Bryan from Extreme Rules 2012.

    Just wanted to ask a question, is this top ten WWE matches of the 21st Century or the top ten of everywhere? I only ask as it seems a very limited list given the classics that have been contested in WWE, TNA, NJPW, ROH, PWG, Dragon's Gate, NOAH etc over the last 13 years
