9. Kurt Angle vs. Brock Lesnar, WrestleMania XIX

Date: 3/3/2003
Location: Seattle
Storyline: Lesnar won the Royal Rumble in January becoming No. 1 contender.
Winner: Brock Lesnar via F5 at 21:04
That this match even took place was a miracle—Angle delayed neck surgery for it. Typically great Kurt Angle match with multiple reversals and false finishes. To his credit, Lesnar keeps up with him. He also nearly paralyzed himself after botching a Shooting Star Press and landing on his head. Somehow, he got up—though he looked punch drunk and concussed—and hit Angle with an F5 for the win.
