Question Why didn't HBK put Masters over at Unforgiven 05'?

Masters was a rising talent at the time, and although he was rough around the edges, he was somewhat of a total package. he had a great look, he was decent on the mic, and had great in-ring presence. was it HBK's ego, or was Vinny Mac not too hot on Masters? i don't get it... the dude was 22 at the time, and HBK was already on his way out (or at least he should've been). worst of all, fucking HBK stuck around for like 5 minutes after the match, "holding in his tears", and waving goodbye, trying to get those sympathy chants.

it was a good match, though.

Masters couldve been big, possibly even a main eventer one day...shame they ruined him. And thanks OP for reminding me of this match, will be the next thing I watch on the Network

Well, when you look at how things turned out, would it have really mattered?

I was at this show! I remember Michaels using the rope to get out of the Master Lock and I thought they were going to count it as the first to 'break the move'. I was pissed! I was always a fan of Master's. Going over Michaels would have been great, but staying off the drugs would have been better.

I doubt it was Hbk's call, Master's wasn't quite ready to beat someone in that league yet and if he did he would have probably had to continue up the card into the title picture, he was probably getting a slow build and being tested as a main event level talent. Evidently it didn't work out. Hbk beat Batista at Armageddon 03 for the same kind of reasons I reckon.

May or may not have been Michaels' call. But it's the same ol case of actually working & being a full level threat against HBK that made Masters look like a million bucks at that time. It really didn't do him any harm to lose. Michaels had to score the victory on a surprise Sweet Chin Music. You know, they booked it swell. Great match. WWE did a way worse job handling Masters following WM 22, tbhayley. This is one of his positive aspects of his WWE career. Behind his tremendous improvement w/his 2009 - 2011 return where he was killing it every single week.

Michaels didn't put over much young talent by taking pins. The only one I can honestly remember was Randy Orton.

And no, I don't buy the bullshit about "just being in the same ring with someone puts them over"

Michaels doesn't like to do jobs.

Although it was cool for Chris Masters. HBK was his favorite wrestler growing up so getting to work with him was a dream come true!
