Flair too. Hogan match is solid as well, some people like it a lot more though. But still, that's only 4 matches.

Edit: Undertaker is Mr WM for me currently for more than just match quality too. For the last decade his STREAK has been perhaps THE biggest part of WM, whether he was involved in a title match or not. His matches always have that special feeling regardless of his opponent, similar to HBK in that regard.

True, more matches. And alot more matches like Giant Gonzalez, King Kong Bundy, Snuka, Sid, Bossman, etc.

I don't know. When I look at both guys' WM resumes, I see more quality matches on HBKs' resume than I do 'Taker's. And I see a pretty good amount of crap on Taker's resume. It's not even particularly close.

Yeah, I quickly edited my post (obviously not quickly enough) to add the Flair match. The Hogan match was OK, but nothing on the level of the other 3. Then you get a bunch of other crap like vs. Steele, then the title tournament @ WM4, mixed tag @ WM6, etc etc.

And HBK has those terrible matches against the likes of Tatanka, Santana, Bret, Orient Express tag with Marty .

Both guys have some garbage early on in their WM careers.

The ironman match wasn't terrible. It wasn't 5 stars, but it wasn't crap, either. And the Santana and Tatanka matches were his first two singles WM matches. They still pale in comparison to Snuka, Roberts, Bossman, Bundy, Big Show and A-Train, Sid, Gonzalez, etc.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

You cant really compare Taker and HBK's WM matches though, its not Taker's fault he got handed guys like Gonzalez etc early on whereas HBK had better people in general to work with, plus Taker was a victim of his own gimmick early on..

Two of my all time faves though of course. (HBK IN the ring)

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Really don't see how it's between anyone but HBK and Taker. HHH has had some gems (vs Booker, triple threat @ 20, vs Cena, vs Taker x3, etc), but I still don't think it's on the level of HBK and Taker's resumes. Since WM23, Taker has arguably been involved in the best match on the card.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'd definitely say the Iron Man was garbage.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Ah not me. Definitely a **** affair for me. It was a 65 match. Considering the grueling length of the match, it was good to me.
