It seems bizarre that a match could possibly topple that epic from The Rock and Mankind, but just two years later, two of the most technically superb wrestlers of their generation put on a staggering show.
Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit had been feuding since WrestleMania the following year, and they would battle for Benoit's Intercontinental Championship in a ladder match for the ages at the Royal Rumble of 2001.
Almost 19 minutes long, it featured some absolutely stunning spots that brought the crowd to their feet. The most notable of those has to be Benoit flying through the ropes headfirst, before Jericho met him with a steel chair.
Jericho applying the Walls of Jericho to Benoit at the top of the ladder is another brilliant moment in a stunning match, before Jericho finally claimed the title when he slung Benoit from the top of the ladder.
Why does it make the top of the list as best title change at the Royal Rumble? It was the culmination of a magnificent rivalry between two of the best Superstars of their time, and it was an amazing match to sit and watch.
Nos. 2 and 1 are close, but this one just pips it.
