This is why I keep coming back to The-W! I love the quick wit. However AWA, you will need to decide between Mac vs. & Connors and Roddick vs Federer. I realize this may be like picking your favorite child but there can only be one favorite (at least in my book).
I'd have to go with the first War Games match in 1987. Just listening to Tom Miller announce, the crowd going beserk, plus seeing that structure for the first time and then watching Arn Anderson get the absolute sh!t pounded out of him for 5 minutes was just ridiculously mind-blowing.
I came into this thread with the specific intention of saying Michaels-Ramon at WrestleMania X, but then I saw the first HIAC mentioned and I have to think...
Nah. Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon, Ladder Match, WrestleMania X. It's not the best match ever, and it might seem tame compared to the TLC matches of the early '00s, but it's my favorite match on my favorite show of all time.
CM Punk v. Samoa Joe II, 10/16/04, Chicago Ridge, IL. I've never been so sucked into a match, and I was there live for Austin/Hart at WM 13. Just an amazing match, a crowd that was hot as hell, and two guys who to me are the future of American wrestling.
My favorite match will always be HHH vs. Cactus Jack Street Fight from Royal Rumble 2000. Great drama, great selling, brutal, and I loved every bit of the build-up to it. The look on HHH's face when he realized he was going to face Cactus Jack in the weeks previous is still one of my favorite moments in wrestling, and the match paid it all off. Of course, the feud would continue in HIAC the next month, but this was the best match of the feud, I think.
I also have soft spots for:
HHH vs. Stone Cold - No Way Out '01 Sting vs. The Great Muta - Great American Bash '89 (Probably not even the best match on the card, but I was such a mark for both guys). Four Horseman (Chris Benoit & Dean Malenko) vs. Raven and Saturn, Spring Stampede '99. I also have a deep and abiding love for that Trish vs. Lita match that main evented RAW a couple of years ago. For some reason, that one just got on my feet, probably simply because I want more -good- women's wrestling on my TV.

When I was in college a bunch of guys from our dorm went to Chicago to watch a taping of Jerry Springer, back in the days before the fights and whatnot every episode. I was on t.v. a bunch of times when they cut to audience reactions.
