Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I was going to say it did seem short, that would be awesome since it kicked into another gear near the end of the second link (Santo dive and them fighting in the seats).

I think I love HBK/Taker mainly for the callback spots, Taker's selling, the story playing off of Flair/Michaels and the way they seemed to work towards a more character/story driven match whereas the WM 25 match was more of a sprint/clash of titans deal. I can see why some might find it too melodramatic/a forced epic, but I think they nailed the perfect balance between old school work and modern WWE DRAMA/STORYTELLING in a much better way than either Taker/HHH match which just felt too cheesy and forced. Its not necessarily a match I'm shocked is divisive, but I do think there's a lot to appreciate about it.
