8. Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon - WrestleMania X
This was the bout that set the standards for every Ladder Match that succeeded its kind as the “Heart Break Kid” battled with “The Bad Guy” for the Intercontinental Championship. The two close friends showed the world how much heart they had if they were given the opportunity. Razor had won Shawn’s vacated Intercontinental title but as the youngster returned from injury, he still claimed that he was the true champion. Michaels’ bodyguard Diesel was unable to stop Razor Ramon from winning as three of the members of the famous “Kliq” gelled to emphasise the heart of the WWE in a time they were losing a ratings raw with WCW. This format would become a staple at WrestleMania for years to come in the form of TLC & Money in the Bank matches. Michaels earned his nickname as the “Showstopper” with performances such as this and went on to become one of the most decorated men in Sports Entertainment.
