Eddie/JBL is outstanding. MOTY for 2004, most likely worldwide except for Hashimoto/Kawada, Takayama/Kobashi and Santo/Perro depending on how good it is on a rewatch.
Eddie is as good as ever as the plucky, fiery and passionate babyface out for JBL's blood. JBL proves he's a capable and handy worker as the violent bully brutalising a defenceless and helpless Eddie. The emotion, tension and drama as the blood covers the canvas and Eddie looks on the verge of defeat is astounding. Eddie's comeback and build is wonderfully done and arguably the highpoint of the match and the subsequent beating of JBL is emphatic and advances the feud. DQ finish is also ingenious in protecting JBL who couldn't lose his first title match whilst allowing for Eddie to keep the title since he couldn't lose to JBL as well as providing for a legitimate claim for a rematch with JBL being able to claim Eddie did it deliberately to protect the title. Top 15 match in company history and a true gem.
