The 'Attitude Era' of the WWF, now the WWE, is something that touched the hearts of a lot of us here at Balls.ie, and we regularly wax lyrical about the superstars of the time and the incredible PPV events that we would desperately beg our parents to let up late for.
Whether you are still a fan of the WWE, or lost interest along the way, if you enjoyed professional wrestling in your youth, you are sure to fondly remember these absolutely iconic main events from the time period.
Having done some digging on YouTube, here are 5 of the very best WWF main events that had us absolutely hooked.
Summerslam 1997 - Triple H vs Mankind - Cage Match
With Chyna prowling the outside of the ring, Hunter Hearst Helmsley takes on Mankind in the old style of cage before it was noticeably improved.
Wrestlemania 16 (2000) - The Rock vs Mick Foley vs Triple H vs The Big Show - No DQ Match
Just look at that line-up. This was a seriously big deal.
Backlash 2001 - Chris Benoit vs Kurt Angle - Ultimate Submission Match
Two experts of the submission go hell for leather in the squared circle.
Wrestlemania 17 (2001) - The Hardy Boyz vs The Dudley Boyz vs Edge & Christian - TLC Match
Because NOBODY spelled 'Boys' without a Z on the end. This one was a game changer.
No Mercy 2002 - The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar - Hell In The Cell Match
Two absolute giants loafing about on a steel cell, what could possibly go wrong?
