This week, SmackDown holds its 1000th episode.
Since its debut on April 29, 1999, the WWE's second-biggest show has moved around five different networks (UPN, The CW, MyNetworkTV, SyFy and USA Network) while being moved around from Tuesdays to Thursdays to Fridays and undergoing more format changes than you can shake a stick at.
At the same time, SmackDown has always had its fair share of unique moments, including debuting some of the biggest stars in the business, shooting tons of memorable angles and featuring classic matches that have stood the test of time.
In compiling the Top 50 SmackDown Moments, Canadian Bulldog's World looked at the following criteria:
How memorable was the moment, even years later when applicable?
Was it fairly unique, or something that was replicated on Raw or elsewhere?
How important was the match, moment, interview or angle to the careers of those people involved?
As always, this Top 50 list is open to healthy debate. If you have any comments, thoughts or feedback, feel free to Tweet us at @canadianbulldog, using the hashtag #Top50. And don't forget to check out nearly 150 more on this site, including....
49) Corbin Cashes In
Baron Corbin waited until the August 15, 2017 edition of SmackDown to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase against WWE Champion Jinder Mahal, who was weary after losing his match to John Cena. Unfortunately, Cena distracted Corbin, who lost both his briefcase and the title shot.
1) SmackDown Iron Man
The most memorable moment in SmackDown history took place on September 18, 2003. The entire second hour of the program was dedicated to a match between WWE Hall of Famer and WWE Champion Kurt Angle against challenger Brock Lesnar in an Iron Man Match. Lesnar won the bout, five falls to four, and captured the championship in a legendary match.
