26. Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit, WrestleMania X-Seven

Date: 4/1/2001
Location: Houston
Storyline: Benoit had made Angle tap out to his Crippler Crossface; Angle wanted to prove it was a fluke.
Winner: Kurt Angle via school-boy roll-up at 14:02
As with many Angle matches, there's some amateur wrestling to start but the inventive counters and reversals—ankle-lock to ankle-lock, Crippler Crossface to Crippler Crossface—were amazing.
