you are splitting hairs in picking one over the other. Last night's match was the best 60 minute match I have ever seen, and nothing else is even a close second. The first match I would say had more highlight sequences, but the drama of last night's match was better. The last 6-7 minutes of the rematch was insane.
My vote is for the first match, but it's such a slim margain. Both are incredible and quite possibly the two best matches I have ever seen in my life.

I've not had time to watch it yet but hopefully will give it a view tonight.
Edit: Have now just watched it. I love both matches but think I prefer the second a little more. I think the fact I went in knowing it would be an hour but it really didn't feel like an hour at all, I was surprised when Don Callis said it'd be 30 minutes into the match. Anyway I just feel like the match just kept picking up as they went along and those finals minutes were awesome. I also loved the spot where they both collapsed when Okada was going for the rainmaker and of course that final few seconds where Okada is just crawling to Omega. Just a stunning match all round.
Both were amazing but I prefer the second one (though that might also be because it's fresher in my mind). But like what was mentioned above it had great spots, they went balls to the wall for 60 minutes, and I also liked the heightened sense of urgency when all of the Bullet Club members came out and Cody was threatening to throw in the towel.
I also like what Kenny said about trying never to have the same match twice. I really felt that both matches, although great, were vastly different from each other. And that in itself is amazing!
