Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero, Halloween Havoc 1997

WCW used to be real big on toying with the idea of unmasking Mysterio (they eventually did just that, too) and it was no different here. He was feuding with his good friend Guerrero, who was cruiserweight champion at the time, and the stipulation was just what you would think.

Mask vs. title. Of course they had a ton of fun with it.

Bret Hart vs. Chris Benoit, Nitro 1999

Owen Hart tragically died at the WWF Over the Edge event in May of '99 at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City. Months later, when WCW Nitro came to the same arena, Bret wrestled Benoit in a tribute match.

It was amazing, an emotional ride that was as fitting as could be.
