    Off the top of my head I'm going with the following.

    Hogan Slams Andre
    Mankind wining the title
    Mankind flying of the top of the cage
    Michaels beating Bret in the iron man match, and winning the title.

    Mine // not objective. Note: born in 86 so although I've gone back and watched a lot of classic moments I'm not considering them unless I saw them live while they occurred.

    1. HBK Hart iron man.

    2. Bret Austin --- austin bleeding in the sharpshooter. To me this was much more holy shit Austin 316 than his KoTR post interview (which was GREAT as well).

    3. Montreal screw job. So much confusion and mixed emotions at the time. It wasn't clear then live what was happening but you knew something was wrong and the shit hit the fan.

    4. daniel Bryan turning on bray. That reaction still gives me the feels and then it was full on Bryan revolution till mania.

    Honorable mentions

    Hardys vs E&C ladder match (no mercy?). The first tag team ladder match between these guys. It was a roller coaster and took all four from lower / mid card to a great age of tag team wrestling and some of he most anticipated matches on cards.

    Austin / tyson.

    Y2J debut. the hype for it was unbelievable. Then to finally see Jericho and rock go at it was amazing

    Your objective list is pretty hard to argue with although if I was to change anything I may replace Mankind with the first Wrestlemania just because of what it meant to Vinces National Expansion

    Shows how good a worker Benoit is having been a corpse for most of a decade at WM30.

    Pretty hard to argue against the bolded. Maybe with Superfly going off the top of the cage in MSG as an honorable mention.

    Mine:
    The arrival of Y2J
    DX invades WCW
    HBK kicks a little girl in the face
    Kurt Angle moonsaults off of the cage
    (And I've been a fan since '85, brother!)

    Watching this as a child at the time was such a shocking moment for me in the realm of professional wrestling. It was a literal feeling of betrayal and took me years to ever root for HBK after this happened. Such an iconic moment in professional wrestling and for me as a fan.

    Seriously though, that was pretty big. I'll have to sit down and think about it but there's way too many to just have one Mt. Rushmore. Some not listed are the Pipebomb/MITB 2011 Punk vs. Cena, Warrior vs. Hogan at Mania 6 for the Passing of the Torch, Eddie and Benoit at the end of Wrestlemania 20, the original Brand Split, HHH taking over D-X after Wrestlemania 14 and Waltman returning.
