Number 9: WrestleMania XIX: Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle

One of the fastest rising stars in the history of the WWE, Brock Lesnar had it all. The athleticism for a freakishly powerful 290 pound superstar, along with the amateur wrestling background, and the desire to become the best. At the time, Kurt Angle was the best. Technically, nobody could compete with the former Olympic Gold Medalist. As Lesnar won the 2003 Royal Rumble, he would go on to face Angle in a classic bout in Seattle. The build was solid, but the in ring match was fantastic. Two guys who knew how to work the crowd and put on classic wrestling did just that. Lesnar and Angle fought to perfection, besides a botched shooting star press that stopped the crowd. Lesnar looked to have broken his neck, but he got up and connected with a picture perfect F-5 to win the WWE Championship. Back and forth for 20 minutes, this deserves to be number 9 because of the great story telling between the ropes.
