For my money the best match of the year is still Edge vrs Undertaker at Wrestlemania. Edge wrestled his ass off in that match--which was a clean match, btw--and you could even (very briefly) believe that Takers' streak might actually end, although it didn't, of course. Edge vrs Undertaker in the Hell In A Cell was phenomenal too (was that the Summerslam match you're referring to?).

I also remember (because I was there) the fatal 4 way at Backlash where HHH took the title from Orton. JBL and Cena were out quicker than I expected but the finish between Orton and HHH was long and compelling--awesome match!

Yep that hell in a cell was great, although Im surprised about the lack of blood.
Backlash match was great too, may as well have been just HHH and Orton

I hate wrestling.

For me, it is stupid to watch a fight...
You like violence? You are stupid.
I hate wrestling also 'cause it's not real. In a real fight, the fighters will be dead.

Wrestling if for the stupid part of the human beings.
Rough.
Not civilized.
Stupid.

Well dont post here, we as fans are quite entitled to enjoy the violence of wrestling, its not all fake, the throws, suplexes and blood is real. Noone is stupid for enjoying sports entertainment.

No need to counter someone whose argument counters itself. He/she says violence is stupid--then says wrestling is stupid because it's fake! Well, if it's fake then it's not violent; ergo not stupid! Captain Kirk destroyed many alien robots using such logical paradoxes.

Flair won it 16 times but also lost it 16 times, not the best title defender.
Triple H is different, his latest reign was outstanding.
Jeff Jarrett from TNA is also in the running for beating Flair's record. Now there's a scary thought...
Still, Triple H married into the McMahon family and Jarrett runs TNA (or something like that). Kinda makes winning so many titles easy, don't you think?

Don't forget about the NWA title.
Although, I think WCW might have had exclusivity to it at some point like TNA did.

I've not seen all of their WrestleMania clash, but you're not the first person who I've heard say that they believed Undertaker's streak might have come to an end. I have seen their Hell in a Cell match though, which I agree with you about.

I was too, but then I heard about WWE's attempt to go PG. XD

Well, as a person who is hoping to become a wrestler someday, wrestling isn't just about violence since I view it as an art form. There's just something special about watching wrestlers go at it in an attempt to tear the house down.
