Chris Jericho vs. Christian - Intercontinental Championship Ladder Match: Unforgiven 2004

Christian and Chris Jericho had incredible chemistry as opponents and allies. This time, it was as opponents and they had a great battle over the IC title. This one was on PPV and these guys took what they had learned in previous matches to make this one a fun bout.

23. Kurt Angle vs. Mike Haywood for the Kurt’s Olympic Gold Medals

WWE SmackDown | March 10th, 2005 | Roanoke, VA

This one isn’t much of a match at all. Mike Haywood never really made much of an appearance beyond this quick match for Kurt’s medals.

25. Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero for Custody of Rey’s Son Dominick

WWE SummerSlam | August 21st, 2005 | Washington, D.C.

The was another first for WWE in that Rey Mysterio put custody of his son on the line against Eddie Guerrero. This was the blow-off match in a long personal feud between the two men and the match matched that emotion. It was one of the best feuds of 2005.

WWE Raw | October 3rd, 2005 | Dallas, TX

Matt Hardy and Edge took their real-life feud into the ring and fought for a Raw contract in a Loser Leaves Raw Money in the Bank Match. This put an end to both guys being on the same brand and solidified Edge as a hated heel.

The second MITB match saw RVD come through with a big victory. It would set RVD up as the face of the company until he got pulled over by the cops and suspended for a Wellness Policy violation. Oh what might have been…

ECW | August 15, 2006 | Washington, D.C.

RVD and Sabu are real-life friends who always had great chemistry in the ring and they had a pretty decent match to become #1 Contender to the ECW Championship on an early episode of WWE’s ECW. Surprisingly, Sabu came out on top in this one.

29. Rob Van Dam vs. The Big Show to Pick The Date of Future ECW World Championship Match

ECW | October 24th, 2006 | St. Louis, MO

I couldn’t find any footage of this one which tells you all you need to know about the quality. This is when WWE’s ECW was starting to become dead in the water and things were starting to become really ridiculous.

WWE Raw | November 20th, 2006 | Baltimore, MD

Jeff Hardy vs. Johnny Nitro - Intercontinental Title Ladder Match: Raw, Nov. 13, 2006 on WWE Network

Jeff Hardy and Johnny Nitro had a great feud when Jeff returned to WWE. This was the feud that showed everyone how good Johnny Nitro was and these two had a really fun Ladder Match on Raw. I enjoyed the feud between these two guys and I definitely recommend this one.
