that people talk about does that give the guys a special bond or freindship? An example is Undertaker and Mick Foley being involved with the Hell in a Cell and being constantly asked about it in interviews. Are they good friends due to putting that match together. Or Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat, they talk about their matches but are they friends?
They would certainly, I would think, get to know and respect each other and have a great shared experience, but I'm also sure some guys who never liked each other for whatever reason also have put on great matches together over the years.

Sometimes yes but sometimes personal issues and jealousy actually make them move further apart. Foley was bitter at Rock after their legendary "I quit" match because he didn't remember Rock checking on him backstage afterward. Austin and Bret became closer but Bret and Shawn moved further apart the better they got with each other.
I think it's more likely you'll - at the very least - be cordial and get along with the guy you have a great match or rivalry with.
I like the story in Fred Blassie's book about his legendary feud with John Tolos. They still wrote letters to each other, 40 years after their feud. John addressed one to Mr. Fred "Number One" Blassie. Blassie called back, saying, "You're damn right I'm Number One! Why the hell didn't you admit that way back then? We could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble!"
