***3/4 This was fucking AWESOME. A ton of great technical stuff early on, and then both men got increasingly vicious. Benoit was Benoit in this every counter and move was smoother and Austin more then held his own for the most part, I would bump this to 4 stars if 1. Austin would of sold the arm and 2, if the finish wasn't so anticlimactic.
Just finished watching this match. Pretty damn good for the amount of time it got. The finish did feel very anticlimactic, though. I agree with that. I'ma rate it @ ***1/2. Their SD match is a true classic, though. ****3/4 worthy.
While I was at it, I also watched the Smackdown match between Taker & Benoit. Another short one with a DQ ending. Had potential but like I've said before, they should have gone at it in a bigger stage or at least been given 20 minutes to put on a classic.
