#10 Kurt Angle vs Eddie Guerrero (Wrestlemania XX)
This Wrestlemania classic went down with the WWE Championship on the line and saw ‘Latino Heat’ best Kurt Angle on the grandest stage of them all.
Eddie pulled out one of the cheekiest moves ever that saw him loosen his boot’s laces and goad Angle into applying the Ankle Lock; however, when the latter did so, Latino Heat simply slipped out of his grasp, leaving just the boot in the Olympian’s hands.
Kurt then charged right at Eddie in a fit of rage, only to be rolled up and pinned. The match featured excellent mat work, besides a highly frenetic pace and insane chain-wrestling throughout. His Wrestlemania XX matchup against Guerrero has indeed been lauded by fans and critics alike as one of the greatest performances in the history of professional wrestling.
