Both WCW's Spring Stampede 99' and WWF's Royal Rumble 2000 stand out in my mind. I turned down my girlfriend at the time/sex just to see Cactus and HHH. The rest of that show was awesome too, but it was all about the street fight to me.

"I turned down my girlfriend at the time/sex just to see Cactus and HHH."

This reminds me of Mick's great line when talking about the 1998 Hell in the Cell match. He said something along the lines of: "I have guys come up and tell me that they own that match and they've seen it 12 times. I'm guessing that they probably don't have girlfriends." (With all due respect to HrdCoreJob. Props to you for having such options.)

Anyway, I will echo that RR 2000 was a great show. But the RR in 99 might have been even better. Rock/Foley. Great storylines with Vince and Austin, Chyna and HHH, the Corporation. That show just had a great feel to it, as did just about everything they did during a 6-month period there.

I also have to say Survivor Series 98. I may have been incredibly naive, but that was the last official time in wrestling, at least to this day, that I never saw it coming.

My short list of favourite shows:

WrestleMania X-7 -- From the gimmick battle royale to the main event and even a kickass HHH-Undertaker match, everything on the card had a purpose. One of those few shows that actually delivers what it says its going to.

Great American Bash 89 -- for all the reasons everyone else has already mentioned. Easily, in my mind, the best card WCW was ever able to cobble together.

Royal Rumbles 89 and 92 stand out for me as excellent ones. Sure, Big John Studd winning in 89 never set the world on fire, but who amongst wasn't marking out when #1 and #2 were Ax and Smash? And of course Ric Flair's stellar performance in 92 sealed the deal for me.

SummerSlams 88 and 91 -- both were vastly underated. The inaugural version had a hot main event (Megapowers vs Megabucks), ends to several grudge matches and a hot opener (Bulldogs vs Rougeau Brothers). Even though 1991's version leaned heavily towards the faces (Hart Foundation, Virgil, Texas Tornado, Hogan, Warrior, Sid) it still kicked all kinds of ass.

The Big Event (at the time dubbed `Wrestling Hulkamania Night' at the Exhibition in Toronto) -- Sure, I'm partial because I was there among the masses, but simple storytelling and some never before seen `money' matches made from a tremendous night. And the Hogan-Orndorff main event drew a crowd reaction that WWE could only dream of getting these days.

As far as feel good shows go, I'm surprised no one has mentioned this late 98 RAW. Maybe even the last one of the year.

Better known as "The One where Mankind wins the title"!

Of course that has to be one of the classic moments in wrestling history and for crying out loud, how much of a cold hearted sonofabitch do you have to be to NOT root for Mick Foley?!

The undercard was pretty decent as well, I remember.

actually, it aired 1/4/99 and the whole 'FINGERPOKE OF DOOM/that'll put asses in seats' thing ensured victory anyway.

And the feed went during Mark Henry v Viscera! What more could you ask.

You're right about the Malenko v S2H match. The reversal of the superplex at the end is just awesome.

Not to nitpick, actually yes to nitpick, but the Henry/Viscera match where the feed went out was during No Way Out 2000, not Backlash. I had the unfortunate honor of seeing the match again for the first time a few weeks ago since I saw it live.

I'll add WMVIII, it was my first WrestleMania ordered and was just amazing. I will never, ever forget the Piper/Bret match or the epic Macho Man/Flair match. Undertaker killing Jake the Snake was hella impressive, and the thought of Hogan's "last match" against Sid (who scared me at 8 years old) was enough for me too. How I miss those days.
