A new topic for discussion: stipulations. When done right for certain points of a feud they can add to the story and make for a great match! List yours too with reasons.

For me the all time best that I still get excited for is the Royal Rumble. It's one of the few stipulations that makes sense to make the theme of a PPV as it sets up your #1 contender for Wrestlemania and in the past even crowned a champ in the one Ric Flair won.

The other stipulations I like include TLC, War Games from the WCW days with the 2 cages and team format, Submission Matches with guys whose finishers and moves work for it, and the Ironman match with guys who got tons of stamina and moves too.

An aside note since it's not a stipulation but with how stipulations can be a theme of a PPV I miss the King of the Ring format. Tournaments just work to make for easy stories.

My favorite match stipulations .

* 2 out of 3 falls- One of the best matches I've ever seen was a 2 outta 3 falls tag match during the Smackdown 6 era in 2003. Each fall can be built to differently with maybe 2 quick falls then a bacvk and forth third one.

* Street Fight/NO DQ - Again if done right these matches can be great. Favourites for me for example would be Edge vs Eddie Gurrero on Smackdown back in 03 and even Bryan-HHH at mania this year.

*Survivor Series tag matches.-I recall the early days with the team names and team ups you never expected to see.Can be used to build on storylines or create new ones
