NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The foundation of any great storyline in WWE, or any other form of professional wrestling, is the rivalry between the two wrestlers. Sure, you can take two random competitors and put them together and they can deliver a great match. But if the two men really hate each other, on-screen or off-screen, then it turns the match and the story into something fans remember for months and years after the bell rings.
The WWE certainly has no shortage of great rivalries to choose from for a list like this, but we're looking for the best of the best. "The cream of the crop," as Macho Man Randy Savage would say.
So without further ado, let's do this...
Honorable Mention: Edge and Christian vs. The Hardy Boyz vs. The Dudley BoyzThese three teams deserve a special mention because they brought us three of the most memorable matches in the company's history. The TLC matches at WrestleMania 2000, SummerSlam 2000 and WrestleMania X-7 are some of the most beloved and spectacular matches to this very day. One look at Edge's spear to Jeff Hardy off a ladder and you'll get the idea.
