    The Screwjob saw that dastardly foreigner get what he deserved, but Boyhood Dream gotta Boyhood Dream.

    Would have to say the iron man match but we never got the epic match they were capable of

    In retrospect, the Iron Man match would have been better if it wasn't an Iron Man match and instead was a regular match with a 1 hour time limit that went to a draw and then Gorilla ordered sudden death. The nearfalls would have meant more throughout. And it would have given Bret even more of a reason to be pissed about the re-start. As it was, any nearfalls in the first 30 minutes weren't as exciting since we all knew they had another 30+ to go regardless.

    Agreed. It also suffers from sequel syndrome.

    We had more exciting variations of the Iron Man Match that kind of kill this match's repeat viewing effect. I don't think I've bothered re-watching this match in years.

    Like taking one DQ "fall" for using a foreign object to be able to rack up several pinfalls. That was smart booking.....

    They would've had their epic at Mania 13 but Shawn lost his smile

    I always thought the ladder match was an underrated classic.

    The Ironman match was lit. Among my favorite Shawn Michaels matches and easily in my top 50 Bret Hart matches too.

    I like their ladder match. Quite frankly, I like both guys but none of their matches against each other really stood out for me.

    Iron Man match. Haven't watched it in a while but it was my favorite match ever for a long time.

    I agree with this .
    At the time of the screw job they both were on a ridiculous level of in ring performance, a level I personally feel very few have ever reached in history. I really wish they didn’t hate each other so much personally and had a longer series of matches during this period.
    They could have wrestled each other every ppv for a year in every type of match you could think of and they were both so good nobody would have complained.
    Could have been the 90’s version of Flair vs Steamboat
