Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Its definitely my favourite, would have to rewatch Angle/Taker from NWO to be absolutely certain where it stands re: the best though. I'm pretty sure Angle/Taker impresses me so much not only because its a legit great match in its own right, but when you take in how often Angle was a 'miss' rather than a 'hit' in big main events its incredible to see how good of a match he was in. The same reasoning is why I really adore Angle/Austin from Summerslam, both men put in excellent performances in their own right and the story is super, but seeing how far better than 95% of Angle's matches it is it makes the match feel even better in my eyes and is why I'd put it in the top bracket of matches in company history.
Yeah, Angle/Taker is definitely a great match. I said recently 06 SD Angle might be my favourite Angle and this was the #2 match of his career by a hell of a lot. #1 is SummerSlam 01, obv, but I'm trying to think of #3 and I can't think of any match that's near as good as the match with Taker. SummerSlam 02 v Rey might be #3, but Id take the Taker match over it EASILY. I used to prefer the Taker match from 03 to NWO 06, but it's probably been three years since I've watched it.
