Top Ten Greatest WWE/WWF Matches of All Time

The Top Ten

Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker (WrestleMania 25)

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

The absolute BEST match ever. I didn't know. Who I wanted to win the match to be honest. But in my opinion I think I wanted hbk to win

Stone Cold vs The Rock (Wrestlemania 17 2001)

I think that the rock would win that one but he lost due to interruption of mr mcmahon

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.

It ws a great mtch... People champ the rock dwane johnson played too well but lose due to mcmahn... Stone cold steve austin also played well...

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.

CM Punk vs John Cena (Money In the Bank 2011)

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

This match made me love professional wrestling again. The crowds incredible love for CM Punk and bitter hatred for John Cena, one of if the best storylines in WWE history, and 33:42 minutes of amazing wrestling. I remember watching this when I was 11 years old, back when Cena really was Superman. When he lost, I was sad. But I knew he'd bounce back. Little did I know it would take two years for Cena to actually beat Punk clean. If Cena is Superman, Punk was his kryptonite. Never have I ever been that into a feud. Not even Rock and Austin. This is a match and a experience that I will never forget as long as I live, and not if Nakamura can top this match on my list. Favorite of all time.

The only match I've ever watched that made me scream at the television. The outcome could not be predicted by anyone. The crowd, the love for Punk and the hatred for Cena. The ending was classic, not a single error by either men, perfect match. In my mind best match ever.

The Undertaker vs Mankind - Hell in a Cell (King of the Ring 1998)

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!

Everyone remember this match. The thin grey line between scripted and real was blurred and it elevated both men

Triple H vs Undertaker Hell In A Cell (Wrestlemania 28)

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!

The electricity before that match was incredible. Everyone was last in the moment of this epic match between two Superstars. The best moment was when The Undertaker kicked out from the
Sweet Chin Music + Pedigree. The Undertaker and HHH proved that this was the best match ever in WWE history. The Match was awesome, the story was awesome, everything was awesome. For what Shawn Micheals and The Undertaker been through, and now what Undertaker and HHH been through, it is the end of an era.

Bret Hart vs Steve Austin - Submission Match (Wrestlemania 13 1997)

This was the match that made Steve Austin a megastar. Steve Austin then ended up being one of the reasons WCW died. This match pretty much was the start of the long comeback for the WWF. It was this match. Not HBK vs Bret Survivor Series, this match.

This match had it all, great build up, perfectly executed match, a double turn and a lot of blood! Austin and Bret Hart gave it everything and it belongs (at least) in the top 3.

I loved this match. It was dirty, it was uncomfortable to watch and there was also elements of great technical wrestling.

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.

HHH vs Kurt Angle vs Rikishi vs The Rock vs The Undertaker vs Steve Austin - Hell in a Cell (Armageddon 2000)

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 this

Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels (Wrestlemania 26)

The best match ever it was emotional and made a huge impact on the WWE it was the end of Shawn's Career.

This mach is the best mach in WWE history

Yes it was the greatest match of all time Shawn Michaels is the best WWE legendary superstar of all time

Watching this match was stressful, you didn't wanna see the streak end but you really didn't want Shawn to leave either, very emotional

Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels - Ironman Match Wrestlemania 12

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.

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.

Over an hour of nothing but pure technical wrestling and not a single spot repeated. It was adrenaline-pumping and my god was it emotional. Especially the ending, with Shawn absolutely ecstatic and on the verge of tears due to not only winning such a highly contested match but achieving his boyhood dream of becoming WWF world champion. The best match of all time period.

That match was exhausting,
The very first ironman match in history

Edge vs John Cena - TLC (Unforgiven 2006)

The champ is here

what a match! once again 2 f the greatest in history I believe this was the 1st rivalry cena had as wwe champion (can't remember if it was JBL)

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 awesome

The Contenders

The Rock vs Steve Austin (Wrestlemania XIX 2003)

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!

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.

This is the greatest match ever two of the greatest in the history of wwe I will never ever forget the rock and stone cold done it all at wrestlemania

Edge and Christian vs. The Dudley Boys (c) vs. The Hardy Boys - TLC 3 Way Tag Team Match (Wrestlemania 17)

this was truly one of the best matches in history with 3 of the best tag teams in history in my oppiniom

The legendary match. Most famous for ages.
I giving 5 stars
This is awesome

Utter masterclass mixed with a demolition derby. Must watch

Bunch of great spots here and the crowd was way better here when the heels won the match. This is by far the best TLC match of all time.

Brock Lesnar vs Undertaker - Hell In a Cell

The youngest WWE champion wins this Match means Brock Lesnar not The Undertaker

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

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. Thanks

My favourite Wrestler wins this match
Beast incarnate himself
Brock Lesnar

Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels (Wrestlemania 21)

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

Definitely one of the most underrated matches of all time

By far one of the Best matches in wrestling

Randy Savage vs Ricky Steamboat (Intercontinental Championship Wrestlemania 3)

This match had the best uses ever of the false finish...shame it's not higher

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!

Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels Hell in a Cell (Bad Blood 1997)

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 finish

Undertaker and Shawnee Michaels are taking this over

John Cena vs CM Punk - Raw 2013

That match was awesome
Next time I want Cm punk vs John cena vs Aj styles vs Seth Rollins

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

Triple H vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit - World Heavyweight Champion (Wrestlemania 20)

Who's Chris Benoit? I've never heard of him

Best Wrestlemania match ever with the greatest in-ring performer in history winning his first and only world championship after an 18 year odyssey

Still quite vivid in my memory although it was a long time ago and I was a kid, couldn't agree more this match portrayed the best of the three men

Why so low? This match is simply unbelievable. I still to this day feel chris Benoits joy when he wins his first world title. Definitely the best triple threat match and maybe even best match PERIOD

Triple H vs Steve Austin - Three Stages of Hell (No Way Out 2001)

Got to be number one no other wrestlers gave tried three stages of hell since and got a great finish even though I was rooting for stone cold

The first and best 3 stages of hell matches

Best match ever. And that's the bottom line..

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

Razor Ramon vs Shawn Michaels (WrestleMania 10)

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)

The Rock vs John Cena (Wrestlemania 28)

Rock is the greatest of all time he is the peoples champion truly this is the greatest match of all time

I mean come on it was the match of the century

It was only an above average match but the fact that this was such a dream match is what made it great

Not only did it sucker in all of us to watch, it delivered big time! The Rock toe to toe with Cena, a match for the ages. The crowd was into it too! Loved the way it ended with Rock getting one over cena

Edge & Christian vs the Hardy Boys vs the Dudleys - TLC (Summerslam 2000)

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 wrestler

Sasha Banks vs Bayley - 30 min Iron Man Match - NXT TakeOver

The Best Women's Match that I've ever seen.

Great match! It really deserves to be in the top 10 list

Best match ever!

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!

Brock Lesnar vs CM Punk - No DQ Summerslam 2013

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 match

Triple H vs Cactus Jack (Royal Rumble 2000)

The build up to this! and the match itself was brutal
Def my favorite by a long Way

The promo on the night of the match showed the brutality of the match

This match simply made made me a wwe fan. Foley is god.

Crazy!
