What would be your favorite ladder match of all time and why? Please don't use a TLC match since technically it's not a ladder match. Mine would be Chris Benoit vs Chris Jericho at the 2001 Royal Rumble for the IC Title. This one is a CLASSIC in every sense of the word. The very reason it is number one is because the pacing is much, much better then both Michaels-Hall matches. I liked most aspects about this one better then the previous ones involving them. Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit wasted absolutely no time getting things going as both men gave each other shots in the middle of the ring, the brawl had begun and didn't stop till Jericho captured the IC title to become the New Intercontinental Champion to end the brutal war. Some of the best innovative offense you`ll ever see with the ladder mixed with the best bumping in my opinion. This is not only my favourite ladder match but I consider it to be the very best just ahead of the famous Hall-Michaels series in 94 and 95.
