Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I'm definitely going to get to HBK-Angle and love it like I did when I first saw it , I swear to god at one point in my life I thought the HBK-Angle series was the OMFG'Z MOSTEPICTHINGEVA and thinking it was the best match of 2005.... Well that's not true because I always adored Batista-Trips HIAC. Pretty sure the first few times I saw it I had it at **** 3/4 and then it dropped to **** 1/4 and eventually to **** where it currently sits.
Don't get me wrong, I think the match is fucking great, but some of Kurt's nonsense in the match kind of drags it down for me a little bit. It's almost in the same boat as the HBK-Bret IRONMAN when I watched it the other day ; I was a fan (unlike a fucking ton of people, wouldn't make my top 100 or anything or even come close) but it wasn't OMFGEPICZ like some people like to describe it as.
I still have three matches left to watch from WM 14 which for some reason isn't in my Anthology set ; HHH-Owen , Taker-Kane, and HBK-Austin ...... The three matches from the event that I own on DVD, watched all the stuff I don't own online. REALLY loved those three matches on last watch so I can't wait to check this shit out now. If HHH-Mankind from Summerslam 1997 was Hunter's first great BIG match, than this is his first really great Mania match IMO.

So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady
