39. Shawn Michaels vs. Diesel, WrestleMania XI

Date: 4/2/1995
Location: Hartford, Conn.
Storyline: Michaels won the Royal Rumble to become No.1 contender to the champion, his old bodyguard Diesel.
Winner: Diesel via Jackknife power bomb at 20:31
Not as great as their April 1996 encounter but a classic big man-little man match with Michaels bumping all over the ring for Big Daddy Cool. Seriously, he falls to the floor three times within the opening minutes. Despite botching a power bomb, this was really the high point of Diesel's lackluster (and unfortunately, lengthy) title reign.
