What wrestlers would have the best matches if they had to wrestle themselves?

The wrestler's opponent is an exact copy of themselves with different gear so they can be told apart. Both will be in their prime unless you specify otherwise. The match time limit is 30 minutes. You may select a stipulation if you so choose. You may also select which company and where the match takes place if you want to go the extra mile.

Dragon vs. Dragon in ROH in 2006, with one of them being the babyface version and one being the heel version. Match is in NYC.

Actually, f*ck that. 2015 babyface ROH Roderick Strong vs. 2015 heel PWG Roderick Strong. Match is in Chicago.

Other candidates are 2004 Samoa Joe in ROH in Philly, 2002 Low Ki in ROH in Philly, maybe some version of Benoit, and possibly 2018 Kenny Omega in Tokyo, or 2005 AJ Styles in TNA.

my first thought was an I Quit match between US Open Challenge era Cena vs Cena, but thinking about it more

Current WALTER, Sabre, or Ibushi would all be awesome, put them in a PWG ring back in 2015

The Ishii match we've seen already. He just did it with Shibata instead of himself.
WALTER might not even qualify due to a technicality because it's possible he only has one set of tights.

I like the more high flying style, and so the first thing that comes to my mind is Ricochet. Not knowing a lot about him outside of NXT except that one match from LU against Johnny Mundo, I don't know which "version" of him is best, I just know that I want it.

Yes, I am necroing this thread too. I'm bored!

I once saw a shot where Chris Hero, Dave Meltzer, and Rob Naylor theorized about if and how you could do a match where every single move is reversed for the the majority of the match and now the crowd would respond. If this match ever happened, I would have to imagine that it would be Ricochet wrestling a clone of himself.

I also feel like this match would go on forever!
