Top Five Matches of the Year. The fans voted for these matches.
Number 5 Match of the Year
Money in the Bank Ladder Match
April 1, 2007, Wrestlemania XXIII, Detroit, MI
Matt Hardy vs. Finlay vs. Edge vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. Jeff
Hardy vs. Randy Orton vs. CM Punk vs. King Booker (now Booker T in TNA)
The funniest part of this match is when King Booker pulls a
stepladder out from under the ring and then CM Punk used it to beat everyone up.
Kennedy took a nasty shot when he dove off the top turnbuckle to nail Matt on
the ladder but Matt rolled out of the way. The Hardy brothers meet at the top of
the ladder but they fight over who is going to get the briefcase hanging above
the ring and get taken down by Finlay who did a great job of beating everyone up
in this match. Edge spears everyone
in the ring except Punk who manages to sidestep him and then Punk uses a full
sized ladder to take everyone down. Jeff did a spectacular leap off the ladder
to the outside of the ring landing on Edge who Matt had set up on a ladder.
The ladder broke by the way. Finlay is bleeding and even Hornswoggle gets
involved – and dropped from the top of one of the ladders by Kennedy.
Winner: Mr. Kennedy

Number 4 Match of the Year

Last Man Standing Match
Randy Orton vs. Triple H, WWE Champion
Triple H beats Orton for the Championship, then must face
Umaga the same night, and then must face Orton again. The final match between the two is the Last Man Standing
Match. Kudos to Triple H for putting over Orton not once, but twice in one
I don’t know if it was just my television or what but part
of the second half of this match showed up in black and white.
