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.

The greatest part of hte Nikita/Magnum series was how devastated David Crockett and Tony Schivone were after Nikita won.

"The Russian Nightmare has come true, Tony."

You'd have thought that the Soviets had invaded for real.

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
