Good list. I would actually have Bret-Owen at #1. Had a feeling Austin-Bret would take it though, and it is an excellent match. And yeah, I can certainly see why Taker's matches don't often make these lists. He's so often put in there for the purpose of dominating over some barely mobile slug of the week, or otherwise mismatched opposition, that you're going to be hard-pressed to get many epics. His gimmick doesn't exactly call for quality matches anyway.
Do you think that the general air of "Ah well, Steph's back" compared to the "I am never watching the WWE again becuase of Bisch" is due to the fact that RAW has been sucking ass while Smackdown has been high quality in recent weeks?
