I thought about it. I watched both the Wrestlemania ladder match as well as this one. Some may disagree with me, but this really is the greatest ladder match in WWE history.
It took everything that happen in previous ladder matches and raised it to a level that I still think has not been touched.
This match featured The Hardys vs Edge and Christian in the first ever tag team ladder match. Not only that but the winner also received a 100,000 dollars as well as Teri Runnels as their manager. The tournement leading up to the finals was just as wild of a ride as the final match.
In this match alone we saw the first seasaw ladder trick performed by the Hardys, the first back suplex off a ladder, as well as the first powerbomb off the top step of the ladder performed by Edge.
Jeff Hardy hit his first ladder Swaton Bomb onto Christian who laid on top of the ladder. Matt Hardy performed the first neckbreaker off the ladder and Christian leaped off the in ring ropes to take out both teams who were standing on the outside of the ring. The first time any one attempted that move in a ladder match.
Not to mention the final moments of the match was just as chaotic as the opening bell, with Jeff Hardy moving off a falling ladder onto a standing one with Edge. He then pushed Edge off the ladder and grab the sack containing the money and Teri's contract.
To put it simple there were more spots and new moves attempted in this one ladder match that have been attempted in any ladder match before it or after it. This match was the building blocks for the careers of the Hardys Boys and Edge and Christian.
That night and the next night after the PPV match was over the four men recieved until this day one of RAW's and WWE's loudest standing ovations from fans who watched the events unfold.
Winner: In the history books it will say The Hardys, but in the end it was us the fans, and the careers of both teams.
