What were the best matches in WWE history to ever take place at SummerSlam? Thankfully, WWE.com is here to let us know!

There was a time when SummerSlam was just behind WrestleMania as the premiere pay-per-view (PPV) event on the yearly WWE schedule. It has since been replaced by the Royal Rumble, but there have been a disgustingly high number of awesome matches that took place at the biggest party of the summer.

Thankfully, WWE.com has a list of the top 25. Remember to click here to check out their explanation for each ranking.

Let's get it:

25. Shane McMahon vs. Test (1999)
24. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Triple H vs. Mankind (1999)
23. Virgil vs. Ted DiBiase (1991)
22. Alundra Blayze vs. Bull Nakano (1994)
21. John Cena vs. Batista (2008)
20. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Owen Hart (1997)
19. Ultimate Warrior vs. Rick Rude (1989)
18. Undertaker vs. Mankind (1996)
17. Ultimate Warrior vs. Randy Savage (1992)
16. Hart Foundation vs. Demolition (1990)

14. Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Undertaker (1998)
13. Elimination Chamber: Jericho-Goldberg-Nash-Michaels-HHH-Orton (2003)

Pretty incredible that "The Hitman" is rocking three of the top five slots. Even more incredible is the fact that he actually deserves that praise.

You could argue moving a few of these around but overall, it's a fine list.
