not in order..
5 that go unnoticed..
I got Rick Rude vs the Ultimate Warrior.
This is right before Warrior struck gold, well, heavyweight gold. Ultimate Warrior and Rick Rude were a perfect match. They played off each other well, and there was nothing else like seeing the Warrior bench press Bobby the "Brain", memories, o, memories..
Rockers vs the Orient Express..
these two teams were great in-ring talents, all the way around..
Ted Dibiase vs Jake the Snake..
"do you have a price"
Jake's python, sure did scare the h3ll outta virgil. But on the real, both these two were great for company, at that time, the company was well off, stacked from head to toe.

First.... Shawn Michaels vs Jeff Jarrett. Not sure the years but it was before 2000. These matches really brought out the best of both men... both went on to individual world championships, HBK went to the Hall and Jarrett went on to fame in TNA. Both were all around great wrestlers back then and after this rivalry, they just got better.
Secondly... Hart Foundation feud. Bret Hart vs Jim Neidhart... they never wrestled at a PPV or even on TV I believe but these two facing off was a rivalry that no one probably remembers and if so, it didn't really last long. Long time friends, family members and former tag team champs facing each other in a feud that didn't last a long time but it pitted the speed of Hart against the tank like Neidhart. There's nothing like former tag partners beating each other up after being tag champs for so long.
Third... HHH vs Mr. Perfect. Again, I don't think they wrestled at a PPV but this rivalry went beyond the ring to the women of their lives. HHH's girlfriends being escorted from the ringside area by Perfect...? Completely threw HHH off his game so many times. The pompous like HHH became a 'Degenerate' after this feud.

Bret Hart vs Hakushi..
classic battles.. remember Haskushi, he had all the tats on his face..
kinda like the new age prince albert..
my last pick..
DDP vs the Undertaker..
this is after DDP had rivalries with Hollywood, and Goldberg..
taker, he was like 10-0 in wrestlemania's.. haha

Hart vs Hakushi? What about the rivalry that made the Hitman... Vs Bad News Brown? Hart had been a singles guy for a while but until BBN destroyed Hart's battle royal trophy at WM4, Hart wasn't going anywhere. This feud made the Hitman who he was... The best there is, was and will be.
Finally Road Dogg vs Rockabilly... Or Billy Gunn as he would be known as later. They faced off on Shotgun once, a day later they teamed up and took over. Rockabilly wouldn't have been where he is without Road Dogg, the New Age Outlaws were born after these two decided that their singles careers, at the time, were going nowhere.

Yeah, he was pretty fire while ont the smoking gunns and new age outlaws.
either way.. haha
DDP and the Undertaker had a good story line. It was backed up by DDp going in the Taker's home, and messing with his wife. lol no joke. DDp was fresh from WCW,and the fans of 'rastlin as a whole, got super excited to see certain matchups we couldn't see for years that came to fruition of Vince's moolah stack.. The Taker is self explanatory, but DDP, he worked from the bottom. Vince gave the Taker high praise off the get go, because of his former alias Mean Mark Callous, as WCW/NWA. Either way, this rivalry was short, but very entertaining. Two future hall of famers finally squaring off, "up north", for Vincent Kennedy McPaperz.
Hakushi vs Bret was like the best of both worlds. Hakushi could fly, he had an ariel assault. And Brett, he was a ground technician, and he could also fly a little bit in his earlier days. Hakushi was WWE's weak version of the Great Muta, minus the "mist"..
or maybe he did that as well, but anywho..lol
Rick Rude and the Ultimate Warrior ONe of the most powerful I-C rivalies all-time, taking my opinion, top 5 .

Alright..., the Rude-Warrior did not go unnoticed. 1989 Royal Rumble? Summerslam 1989 AND Summerslam 1990? Wrestlemania V? They feuded for around two years for the Intercontinental and World titles? If no one noticed that war, they weren't paying attention.
DDP vs Undertaker. Never really got off the ground for me... it would've been great, kind of like the Undertaker-Randy Orton war. DDP coming in as a stalker reminded me of 'Widowmaker' Barry Windham when he came in. But since the DDP-Undertaker happened after 2000, I'm leaving that one alone.
Hakushi vs Bret was a good one and probably could've lasted longer... but it didn't make Bret who he was. His feud with BBN as stated made Hart a solid singles wrestler and without that one, he would've been in tag teams for a long time.
DiBiase-Roberts was good. Two great superstars at the primes of their careers. The one thing that would've added to it is if a legitimate title was at stake.
The Rockers vs Orient Express. Seriously... the Orient Express? Good matches yes but, the only good thing about the Orient's was when they left. They were never really taken seriously by anyone, not a real threat.
