WWE.com lists 25 moments that defined Attitude Era: What's number one?

Is this the top moment of the Attitude Era?

WWE is back to its list making ways and the folks who run the company website have stumbled upon a great idea.

With WWE '13 bringing the Attitude Era back to its fans, it makes sense they are trying to recall some of the most nostalgic moments from that time period. In keeping with that, WWE.com has posted the top 25 moments that define the Attitude Era.

It was an exciting time to be a pro wrestling fan; anarchy and chaos ran supreme and people kept tuning in to see what would happen next.

Of course, WWE.com has a way with lists and you Cagesiders are going to have some strong opinions on this one.

I won't give anything away here but I, for one, was flabbergasted by the order. Maybe you will feel differently, though. Enough with the introductions, let's take a trip down memory lane.

The entire list after the jump.
