I gotta be honest, I enjoyed the match up until the point where Taker decided to take an enormous crap on Lesnar's entire hard work in the match. Take a guess what I'm talking about. It really felt like someone pushed "RESET" and a new match emerged. Have a mental block against that.
I watched all 2002 ppvs a while back , Hogan/Rock is good I guess, think I gave it like ***1/2 for just the entertainment factor alone,if it wasn't for Flair/Taker it would be MOTN.

And I didn't really notice any "resetting" of the match but I'll make sure to look for it next time I watch it(its been since October).

During my rewatch of all these past years, one thing that did stick out was how often all these "resets" that Chismo is talking about occurred. I can honestly name only one main eventer during that time that understood how to sell long-term, and his name is Michael Francis Foley. Rock sometimes did a good job, but oftentimes he shat on any prior work during his comeback sequence. Undertaker and Kane didn't know how to sell, or never needed to. Triple H had on-and-off days. Austin was Kofi Kingston level bad as a seller. Eh, I guess if Jericho and Benoit count as main eventers, they were good sellers. But for the most part, I would have to say that we have the best group of "sellers" today than any other time in company history.

I think my last watch of Taker/Lesnar was the only time I actually understood where the no-selly criticism was coming from. I wasn't actually terribly bothered by that so much as I was bothered by the fact Taker had to insist on using the hand to punch Lesnar in the head. The ''no-selling'' didn't really seem like ''no-selling'' to me so as just ''not very good selling''. The punching was stupid. You have two hands, dude. I thought the middle wasn't great either, I think I said I wished it was 2007 Undertaker controlling the match instead of 2002 Undertaker. I still think it's a really, really good match, but I probably (to put it in certain terms) wouldn't give it ''four stars''.

I don't think you would give any American match four stars. Now where do I find Tarek/Rotten?

Backlash 1999 main event is pretty awesome. I will never forget Austin stunning Rock while he was walking with the camera. That's a classic moment.

Thanks but I already saw that happen... for nearly a whole year in 2012.

Just finished Unforgiven 2000.

I hate that Benoit won that match but it got restarted because the ref didn't see Taker's foot on the rope

Taker vs Shamrock is great. And to this day, that whole Undertaker and his hand thing about HIAC still leaves me chuckling.
