Erm, its good but I'm not in the 'contender for best match in company history' camp. Benoit's desperation and story carries a lot of emotional investment, but truth be told last time I saw it I was just legit bored and didn't find much at all great about it. Nothing offensively bad, but nothing grand.
Wrote about it elsewhere months back:
Yeah, I kinda over-exaggerated by calling it the greatest match I ever saw. But damn did that match leave me wanting more. Rarely do I feel that way regarding matches.
There's a lot of people calling Benoit/Angle a top WWE match, it's not an uncommon thing at all. Shit, how many people in this thread alone think it's top ten? Sure to be five people, maybe? Probably. I wouldn't have it top 100+, but I've always thought it was very good. Another one of those 'haven't watched in years' matches, though. I'd be surprised if I didn't like it on my next watch of it.

Damn, now I REALLY gotta watch Taker/Trips from KOTR. Sounds like a classic waiting to be seen. It's a habit for me to read about how bad a certain match is here and then go on and watch it despite being advised not to. It wasn't that bad of an experience with Taker/Boss Man and Khali/Batista (Punjabi Prison), so I'll surely find some humor in Taker/HHH unless it's going to be the boooooooooooring type like Batista/JBL GAB 05 or HHH/HBK HIAC.
And Benoit/Angle RR03 is definitely a ★★★★★ match for me. Top 5 for sure if not #1.
