#1 Mick Foley defeating The Rock for the WWF Championship

You can call him Cactus Jack, Mankind, Dude Love, Mick Foley, or whatever you want. But his victory over The Rock has to be one of the greatest moments of all time, if not the greatest. 

Reason: During that time it used to be the Monday Night Wars. WWE and WCW both competed with each other for the title of the best brand in the wrestling industry.  

It is so iconic because there was a lot of controversy and rumours regarding the match. It is said that before that night’s RAW was broadcasted, the results of the match were leaked by WCW to make sure that the fans don’t watch the match, and they could win the ratings for the week. 

But their plan backfired, and even more fans came in attendance and watched from their homes to see the underdog Mick Foley finally win and hoist that elusive title. After that show, WWE won the Monday Nights War, and has never had serious competition since then. 

By the way, do you think wrestling quality would be better if Monday Night Wars was still on? Comment and let me know.
