Is Bret-Owen the only truly great traditional (meaning non-Hell in a Cell) cage match in WWF history? You could point to the old Superfly/Muraco match with the famous splash off the top of the cage, which is obviously historically important but maybe doesn't hold up to today's standards, but I can't even think of other matches that somebody would make an argument for.

Personally I think the Edge vs Matt Hardy cage match from '05 would be the only logical number 2.

Top 5:

Bret/DBS-1992
Cena/Bryan-2013
Bret/Perfect-1991
HHH/Rock-1998
Rey/Eddie-2005

Not sure that's my order, but those five stick out the most to me.

Haha, yeah. Only been a wrestling fan on and off for about 3 years now. I remember not understanding what a Tombstone Piledriver was, I just thought it sounded cool. I had heard names of very few wrestlers - Cena,Rock,Undertaker, DX, Hulk Hogan and Jeff Hardy.
I remember a guy from school asking every one inthe bus who they thought would win Cena x Rock(the first one) and I replied Who is "Rock"?

Punk/Lesnar is my favorite, just an incredible match, especially considering how unbelievable it looks on paper that Punk could be made to look like he could hang with Brock.

My other favorites are pretty much the usual: Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect, Bret vs. Owen, Bryan vs. Cena, Shawn Michaels vs. Razor Ramon, TLC 1, Angle vs. Austin, Edge vs. Undertaker (surprised not to see this mentioned more), Punk vs. Hardy, Orton vs. Christian.
