1.) Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels. To me, this one had it all. A young upstart in Shawn Michaels gunning for the top spot which was currently being reserved for the face of the company at the time in Bret Hart. Not only were these two excellent in ring performers with elite chemistry with one another every time they met, but they were also superb on the mic and this made for some absolutely epic promos. Although their in ring chemistry was, as mentioned, elite, these two also absolutely hated each other outside of the squared circle and it really showed in their promos. Both of them hated everything the other one stood for, and it built a level of tension between the two that I don't believe has been matched since.
2.) AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe. This rivalry got my vote for a few reasons. First of all, these guys just can't seem to get rid of each other. They've done programs with one another in various Indy promotions as well as in TNA. Second, these two absolutely built TNA from the ground up. Period. I don't care what anyone says, these guys were the reason that most of us started watching TNA. Third, plain and simple, their matches are fantastic. I can't think of a single AJ vs. Joe match that wasn't thoroughly enjoyable.
3.) Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels. The main reason why I picked Michaels vs HHH was because of their great promos. They seem to work extremely well off of each other in that regard and you know their chemistry is off the charts. Their matches were very good too, but I really think the promos they had with each other are some of their best work.
4.) Bret Hart vs. Owen Hart. Bret vs. Owen was a classic feud that worked on all sorts of different levels. The WWE tried to re-create the "brother vs. brother," feud with Matt and Jeff Hardy, but it failed for a couple of reasons. Firstly, neither of those two could hold a candle to Bret or Owen in ing, and second is that Owen was just such a special person that I really think he carried the feud promotion wise. He sold the "jealous brother," act so well and made every word he was speaking so believable that he really got the fans enthralled in the action.
5.) Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle. This one is simply a matter of preference in my eyes. Well, they all are to a degree but this one is especially. I've mentioned many a time on this site that my favorite era in WWE history was the period between the Attitude Era and the PG Era and specifically, the Smackdown brand of this era. The feud between Lesnar and Angle in this era was a major reason why I loved it so much. Not only was it superb wrestling, but the promos for this feud was off the charts greatness. I really think Kurt put over Lesnar in this feud, especially as a heel. Some could argue that Undertaker put over Lesnar, but I think it was Angle personally. Taker might have brought Lesnar into the main event picture, but I don't
think he truly became "The Next Big Thing," until his matches with Angle.
6.) Mitsuharu Misawa vs. Kenta Kobashi. I don't speak a lick of Japanese, so I got no idea if their promos are any good, but I can tell you guys flat out that the best professional wrestling match I've ever seen was between Kenta Kobashi vs Mitsuharu Misawa. I've heard their feud being touted as making "Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels look like Mark Henry vs. Big Daddy V." Now I don't think I would go quite that far, but I think you get my point.
7.) Bryan Danielson vs. Nigel McGuiness. Two of the greatest in-ring technicians in the world today going at it head to head, and imho both had the greatest matches of their careers against each other.
8.) Edge vs. John Cena. The face of the company vs. the top heel of the company. Excellent promos and matches from these two. Again the chemistry between these two was superb.
