The Magnum TA/Nikita Koloff best of 7 series was the match that made me a big fan of wrestling. The Bookker T/Chris Benoit series was almost as good, in fact would have been better if it got the same hype as the TA/Koloff series.
Who do you think could really bring in the crowd with a best of 7 series, if they were allowed to cut loose? My vote's for Angle and Benoit. If not confined to the 5-minute time limit and weak WWF (greco-roman punch, move #1007, KiCk) style, they could put on some SCARY good 20-monute classics on par with Flair/Steamboat, I think.

Magnum TA was great, and Koloff was the bald, intense, badass when Goldberg was a third-stringer on a shitty nfl team. Magnum was kind of a smaller Scott Hall with a better workrate and blonde hair. He was about 245-250, so he flew a bit more. Since you're looking for matches, also find the Magnum TA/Tully Blanchard I Quit match. Evil-looking match!

I'd love to see a best of 7 Benoit/Angle series. They kind of did best of 4 last year, but I say let them go all the way. I think that could be utterly epic, especially if it were for something important, say the WWF title shot at Summerslam.

I know it's been somewhat overshadowed by TLC, but what about the E&C/Hardys (or 'New Brood') Terri Invitational Tournament? That's really what put both teams on the map, and it was capped by a pretty insane latter match.

There actually IS a best of seven going on in the HWA over the Cruiserweight title (or at least, there was...it probably concluded on this weeks' TV, which I missed, dammit). Chad Collyer (Champ) vs. Shannon Moore. HWA's just rife with good cruiserweight action. Collyer's trained by Malenko, so it's kind of like a Dean Malenko/Jeff Hardy match in a weird way.
Of the WWF guys, I'd love to see:
Benoit & Eddy (now that he's coming back)
Jericho and Edge
RVD and Benoit
HBK vs ANYBODY (I JUST WANT HIM BACK!)
RVD vs Tajiri
