Yeah. But what I remembered of 26, they wouldn't hit a finisher, get back up, hit and different one, repeat until the leaping Tombstone.
25 had some innovative spots to line up for the finisher, like the moonsault to Tombstone counter.
In all fairness, it's been a year since I watch the 25 match, and this was before I got into the rating shit. I'll give it a re watch some when and see if I feel the same. I just remember watching 26 and thinking 'All the hype for that?,' (I didn't watch 25 first, wasn't a fan at the time, I just heard the hype about it) and then I watch 25 and was blown away.
