The Top Ten
Yes truly the best match ever
Undertaker and hbk 2 of the greatest superstars.2 back to back wrestlemania matches and that to the best ever
Best match ever... Just hope HBK would have won...
THe match is the most memorable match of all time...
just can't forget it
Nothing will gonna top this, this was between the two greatest of all time in their late prime bringing two decades of in ring experience and executing it damn perfectly. Also this was pure standard pro-wresting bout with no title, no stipulation neither a main event just pure art.259 Comments
Yeah I agree with you man this match was AMAZING I never thought I would see a match like this in these days... But here it is... But why is it in number 17 are you kidding' me this match was way better than the triple h vs undertaker match it really should be in the top ten
COME ON!... This match is the first to be a 5 star match in almost 10 years it should be at least in the top ten... Both guys were great and they were bringing every thing out of their pocket
Only main roster 5 star match in the 2000's102 Comments
I think that the rock would win that one but he lost due to interruption of mr mcmahon
Best promo of all time, two of the best wrestlers in the ring and with the mic. Revolutionized wrestling and made it as big as it was. One of the few times the two biggest wrestlers went at it and it was more than was expected.
Incredible match, they fought non-stop for 30 minutes and lived up to the hype.
We saw both men steal each others finishers and bust each open.
Vince McMahon helping stone cold Steve Austin was one of the biggest shocks in wwe history.
A beer swilling trash talking Texan vs a guy that said jabroni and made it iconic was the true GOAT57 Comments
This is the best match ever. Hell in a cell match between two of the best ever (Undertaker and Triple H) and with Shawn Michaels as guest referee. All that in the Greatest Stage of Them All, Wrestlemania.
In that situation, it is difficult to be as good as expected, but that match was incredible, with both men giving all the had, resisting much more than anyone had ever resisted (even a Sweet Chin Music and a Pedigree), ending with a tombstone and the 20-0 streak by the Undertaker. I don't think this match can be surpassed.
Really... The fact that miz vs cena is on this list let alone before any match between h and undertaker is insane. This match was amazing, and better than their match at 27, but that was great too. Its even better than rock vs cena
Greatest Match I've ever seen! End of an Era, two legends of the greatest era of the WWE against each other. Rock/Cena was "Once in a Lifetime"? Triple H vs. Undertaker Hell in a Cell WM 28 was truly "Once in a Liftetime"! Shawn Michaels as referee made it even better! Probably the greatest Story ever told in the Ring. Great show of respect After the Match. Three of the Greatest of All Time!83 Comments
HE KILLED HIM! BY GOD HE IS BROKEN IN HALF. -Jim Ross
Add that to Terry Funk and Mankind's tooth going through his nose, best match ever.
Simply put, this is far and away the greatest match of both wrestlers careers. They joined together and fed off of each others bumps the entire match and gave the fans a once in a lifetime, greatest match in the history of ALL professional wrestling. This was the GREATEST MATCH EVER SEEN, and no disrespect to all of the other greats of wrestling but these two men put on the greatest wrestling show the world has ever seen. We should give a special shout out to HOF Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka for inspiring a young Mick Foley at MSG or this match may have never taken place. Greatness seems to inspire greatness, in 20 years from now perhaps we will be blessed to witness another stunning match from a new young wrestler that was sitting in the crowd being inspired by The Greatest Wresting Match of All-Time by far, Mick Foley vs. The Undertaker - Hell in a Cell (King of the Ring 1998). Gentlemen, if I knew how to give you a standing ovation in place of this vote I would certainly do it. This ...more
This was not wrestling! This was pure awesomeness! Mankind was really injured in this match, but he came back twice to kick Taker's ass! He got thrown from the top of the cage twice! One of the greatest match ever with two of the best legends of wrestling! Mankind/Mick Foley, the hardcore god and the Undertaker, the greatest with his 20-0 Wrestlemania streak!
You absolutely need to vote for this if you are a true wrestling fan!
How is this not #1. Head and shoulders above any WWE match ever67 Comments
To anybody trying to understand the industry or develop your craft of in ring story telling, here is the blueprint
A Surreal and Emotional Rollercoaster of a Match. A MASTERPIECE!
Best match in the history of Wrestlemania and one of the best stories in the history of wrestling. Wrestlemania 13 is easily one of the worst Wrestlemanias ever, but is saved from being the worst by this match alone.
Austin managed to turned face by losing the match! That is an unheard of accomplishment earned IN the ring.30 Comments
Best match ever magnificent
The best match ever it was emotional and made a huge impact on the WWE it was the end of Shawn's Career.34 Comments
Greatest match in history right here hbk for life
How the hell is this rated so low. The best 2 all around wrestlers probably ever (arguably we'll say) in their primes going at it for an hour with very little breaks in the action or resting periods at all. Then they are made to continue after the hour? Absolutely insane amount of wrestling skill in this bout plus it was Michael's "boyhood dream come true." This to me is far and away the greatest thing the WWE has ever had period and the fact that its rated 14th to me is a joke.
This match always comes to my mind first when asked what I think the greatest is!
Bret "HitMan" Hart and Shawn Michaels. The very best wrestler of all time. Put them together equals the greatest match of all time. Someting is wrong with the ranking. In terms of technical wrestling, you got em all there. In terms of entertainment and quality, it's there too. Fans today don't really get the science of quality matches, most of them focuses on the drama. Sure, the plot of this match was fulfilling the "childhood dream" but digging through the details of the match makes the whole theme a bonus. One hour (even more) match nothing more to ask for especially from the excellence of execution and the greatest in-ring performer of all time.18 Comments
The only time the rock beat steve Austin at wrestlemania
One of the best rivalries
It took 3 rock bottoms, 2 spinbusters, and 2 people's elbows to put stone cold away! - 322264474
The Rock so dominance to his long life rivalry Stone Cold Steve Austin... EPIC!
Without interference. A match between two important person but not take much time.18 Comments
The whole match was a highlight, No Boring moments. This is my second favorite match of all time! I don't think it's underrated though, Because people actually gave this match the credit it deserves!
This match is amazing! I've seen this match about 5 times and I still get excited when they kick out. It's just a contest between two of the greatest in ring performers
By far one of the Best matches in wrestling
Definitely one of the most underrated matches of all time7 Comments
The champ is here
That was one of the greatest matches I’ve ever seen
John cena undefeted retain era starts from here 2006-2007 a undefeted rain of name john cena prevailed
Truly the best match in wwe of all time. Truly awesome21 Comments
The Chemistry mixed with extreme weapons and some of the greatest stunts as well as The Talent of all 6 wrestlers makes these matches the best I've ever watched
Guys lita participated
Great match by 3 great teams of wrestling
COME ON! THIS MATCH WAS MATCH OF THE NIGHT! STEVE AUSTIN VS THE ROCK WAS GREAT BUT NOWHERE NEAR THIS! THAT WAS SEC MATCH OF THE NIGHT!20 Comments
Best and emotional match ever seen
Literally the greatest match that I have ever seen to this day
The youngest WWE champion wins this Match means Brock Lesnar not The Undertaker - subhashsahu
Undertaker somehow lost to the beast incarcerate
So much blood!
My favourite hell in a cell match ever!
The only time The Undertaker got beat in a cell in a cell match - 322264474
He lost in the very first hell in a cell match ever when Kane debuted
It is the best so far in the wwe because they are the most hardcore wrestler in wwe. Undertaker is the best wrestler in wwe and second is the john cena and the rock they are the true champions in wwe. Thanks41 Comments
This should be MUCH higher on the list. I suspect too many people born around the turn of the century are voting here, and they haven't been exposed to the glory days of pro wrestling... They should really watch this match!
I go back occasionally and watch this match because it set the bar for what all matches should be. No gimmicks. Perfect pacing. Great sequences. Huge venue. Flawless execution. Plus, it was called by Jesse Ventura, whose play-by-play matched the work of the guys in the ring.
Brock Lesnar will never be part of a match like this.
This should be number one by miles, I can tell its mostly kids that vote on this. Matches before the attitude era and beyond don't count.
I'm a big Attitude Era fan but this match (despite the cheap ending) is what I consider the best and most clean match ever. Anybody that doesn't respect pro wrestling has to watch this match!15 Comments
I just can not see how this match, one that many fans and critics alike rate at 5 or near 5 stars is not on this list. This match has arguably the best storytelling in a wrestling match, yet not only is it not in the top 55 purely wwe matches, but one of the worst wrestlemania main events of all time in the Miz vs John Cena makes it. That match was terrible, it had no importance to the wwe, and it was just a lazy effort by both men with a dead crowd
The greatest Hell in a Cell match of all time. There's 4 other cell matches ahead of this one, and I don't understand how. It's brilliant. The ring psychology, the workrate, the innovation, the brutality, Kane's unbelievable debut. It's a masterpiece.
I loved this match and the demon kane debuted to awesome finish6 Comments
In my opinion this is the best match of all time...
Arguably the best raw match ever.
I was shocked cena won that and he became the no1 contender for the wwe champion
Great RAW match! 2nd best ever to Shawn vs Cena in London7 Comments
I hate that WWE tries to hide this. By FAR, the greatest wrestling match ever. It’s so damn good
Best Wrestlemania match ever with the greatest in-ring performer in history winning his first and only world championship after an 18 year odyssey
Who's Chris Benoit? I've never heard of him
Greatest wrestlemania main event match ever!14 Comments
Best match ever I seen
Aj can put on a good match with anyone and he is just... Phenomenal. John is the best superstar to push the other superstars into having a good match
Amazing! AJ and John are the two best ever. A fast pace? Check. Dramatic? Check. False finishes everywhere?! CHECK! I know every one gonna wanna kill me but this better than HBK against Undertaker.1 Comment
Phenomenal storytelling and finish made both men look strong after a war also made you hate triple h that much more for being so lucky
The first and best 3 stages of hell matches - 322264474
Best match ever. And that's the bottom line..
Best best best math ever5 Comments
This was the best match ever. I really loved this match. I loved the part when Punk did an elbow drop using a steel chair. The match ended with a crazy F5 on the steel chair. Best match of 2013 and one of the best matches of all time.
The Best vs The Beast
If there was no Heyman... You know who was the Champion
The best vs the beast was the best match3 Comments
Outstanding match, 6 superstars all fighting for the title, we could also see how the match took a toll on these wrestlers, as they went from the ring to outside to the top and back in, this match was one to watch
Best hell in a cell match ever! Itfeatures the greatest superstars, including the Hell in a cell match legends Undertaker and Triple H. A it also was one of a kind match, which was never seen before.
There are the real fighters
I think this is the best match I have seen in my entire life what a sit... This match should be ranked much higher than this35 Comments
Greatest match ever
This is pure excitement!
What.. This is in my top 3 favorite wwe matches
1.) Undertaker vs Michaels (WM25)
2.) Razor Ramon vs Michaels (WM10)
3.) Bret Hart vs Steve Austin (WM13)
There was a hype in the air for first tlc & the match lived up its hype because of these teams incredible performance
I remember watching this match live and all the moments! The first ever TLC Match between the high climbing Hardy Boys, the Chairmen of the WWF Edge & Christian, and the Masters of Tables the Dudley Boyz on the WrestleMania XVII stage and they all performed amazingly. How anyone survived without major injuries in real life was impressive.
One of the most entertaining matches of all time. Completely revolutionary for the time, and to this day hasn't been matched.
I think that jeff hardy is a Good wrestler2 Comments
The Best Women's Match that I've ever seen.
Great match! It really deserves to be in the top 10 list - BillGoldberg
The story told here is what made it better than ibushi/Nakamura in 2015 as the MOTY, truly incredible match with even more feelins than their Brooklyn match...by the way I LOVE BAYLEY!
This was a match that started one of the best rivalries ever and would later have the best reunion ever.
The build up to this! and the match itself was brutal
Def my favorite by a long Way
This match simply made made me a wwe fan. Foley is god.
The promo on the night of the match showed the brutality of the match
Obviously classic fight, classic rivalry, classic wrestlers. This one is very good along with its ending and Vince-Stone Cold handshake.
This list is nothing guys. The rock vs Stone cold WRM 17 is two times in list. In top 10 too many matches which shouldn't be. And most of matches from this shouldn't be even in top 20 best matches. So I where is match Ricky Steamboat vs Randy Savage? Where is match Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage? Where is match Undertaker vs Triple h Wrestlemania 17?
I know its already been mentioned 3 times... But it z best match in my view... Both bigge. St stars... Many finishing moves executed... Loads of blood... At last bad 16 chair shots to chest to defeat the great one the rock... Must watch it... Its epic
Already on the list! - htoutlaws2012
Hulk hogan is best for ever
"The Passing of the Torch"; Andre's serious medical issues prevented him from continuing his career.
He was in severe pain throughout the match, and was only slammed because he wanted to be.
Andre picked Hogan as his successor, and knew that only something definitive like this would be accepted by the fans.
RIP big guy.
The Hulkster has never been the best in the ring but he sure knew how to play the crowd. When he slammed Andre the Giant who didn't flip? I grew up as a Hulkamaniac, ate my vitamins, said my prayers and worked out! Perhaps not the most entertaining but certainly the most memorable.
The most entertaining match I've ever seen. When andre was knocked off his feet for the first time ever, my heart pounded like never before.12 Comments
Should be in the top 5 matches of all time along with Steamboat vs. Savage & Hogan vs. Andre
That is a great match
Should be higher
This is the best match where there were rivalry, fight and lastly respect for both competitor.. Probably Hogan got his highest respect from the Great one, Icon passed his torch to another Icon who deserved it.. Most of the people got emotional when The Rock came back back to save Hogan and again force him to entertain people with his poses, lastly when Hogan raised his hand again on the entrance gate he again bent his head.. Oh! What a humbleness I will never forget those moment in my life.. What a respect man.. Greatest match8 Comments
This match not only had an incredible buildup, it put Rock over as a heel BIG time. From the get go, Rock played dirty verbally insulting Mankind and striking him with chairshot after chairshot. The battle outside the ring was epic as well. This match had so much passion from Mankind cause he never had any quit in him. In fact, this match was so violent, Foleys wife had to leave due to the disturbance it caused her. Holy crap
I QUIT!, I QUIT!, I QUIT! - Mick Foley - htoutlaws2012
Best match ever
Shane almost died! that's what I call match.
This is the match that stands out to me in my years of watching wrestling religiously. I've watched it numerous times and I can't see why it's so low in this list.
For me, the most extreme and best match ever2 Comments
Undertaker must have a bloody good career
This match can match up with any other match on this list. CM Punk is one of the best all time in a short span compared to Undertaker and others that wrestled 20 years in WWE. This match had it all you can't argue that. If anything most of this matches are great and are all tied for #1 in my book.
An amazing match that lived up to everybody's expectations! Undertaker and Punk gave their all in that match and still gave us that 'moment' when we thought that the streak could really end. A piece of art done by these amazing performers.
I word awesome I thought punk was gonna win but at the end undertaker beat punk and kept the streak going
This match was absolutely amazing. I lover when punk elbow-dropped undertaker on the table10 Comments
Beautiful match from start to end
This match is hugely underrated!
Greatest technical wrestling match since Regal-Benoit. True testament to two of the greatest in ring performers in WWE.
God did these two put on a show every time they went inside the ring. Truly the greatest rivalries4 Comments
This match was good but nowhere near the best in history, I like Bryan too guys but he has the worst hardcore fans of any wrestler.
Daniel Bryan era has begun! - htoutlaws2012
This is the best match in WWE history and Daniel career
YES! YES! YES! Best match in History. It will deserve to be in #1 Spot2 Comments
The Shield My Favorite
I was there and to see it live it was amazing best match ever
It is the best match ever
Arguably the best 6 man match of the year next to the shield vs the Wyatts. - htoutlaws20124 Comments
Was a very unpredictable match and was a great way to open Hell in a Cell. The New Days strategy and The Usos strategy was very well executed. Not saying it was the best match but it diserves a spot between 20 - 15
My ass hurt after viewing this mqtch
A fantastic fight between two of the best in the business. Just a shame it was a non-title match because shawn michaels would have become the champion
Just a perfect
The match was way better than their wrestle mania match
The new comer John Cena and the experienced shawn Michaels. U betcha.4 Comments
The beat down is worth it the birth of suplex city. - htoutlaws2012
Suplex City is born
Brock lesnar is a suplex city he 16 suplex John Cena
This is The best Match because the undertaker had 3 pedigree from H and nearly 20 chair shots to the undertaker and then tombstone by H but the dead man refuse to lose at wrestlemaina. The undertaker could not move but he won unbleavly then after the match H walked away but the undertaker who won could not stand on his on feet but he won. The undertaker won the battle and H won the war. It is better than any undertaker match because the undertaker reached his limit and the first time ever the undertaker on the stretcher but he won. That's why this is the BEST match than any other match in history. Please move is to number 1 in the list
Best match of all time. It shows a message beyond our comprehension of wrestling. The spirit of the undertaker is a spirit that forever lives and this was a match that proved it
I think this should be number nine. It was way better
Than Wrestlemania 28. It would of been epic if
They went on top of the cell.
Best match in wwe history
This was a real good match not as good I accepted but it deserved to main event
