One of the greatest matches ever, in my top 10. In my humble opinion it's the most rewatchable match ever, if I had to watch one match for the rest of my life it would be it. So fun to watch the game and mick destroy each other in the garden.
KingOfKings Top 50 Matches in Wrestlemania History : 45-41
45. "JBL's got the ropes, COME ON!"
US Championship - Chris Benoit(c) vs JBL (Wrestlemania XXII) : *** 1/2
44. "Diesel is NOT AFRAID"
The Undertaker vs Diesel (Wrestlemania XII) : *** 1/2
43. "Triple H has the Crossface locked in! Will Cena tap out?"
WWE Championship - Randy Orton(c) vs Triple H vs John Cena (Wrestlemania XXIV) : *** 1/2
42. "The Houston faithful looking to see a technical classic"
Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit (Wrestlemania X-7) : *** 3/4
41. "Obviously Rey is trying to gain an advantage with that knee brace"
Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes (Wrestlemania XXVII) : *** 3/4
Yeah, so nothing controversial yet I would imagine. I'm a huge fan of the stiffness of Benoit-JBL and it ultimately edges out Benoit-MVP by a small, small margin. I'm sure Angle-Benoit and the triple threat might spit some people but I was a huge fan of both. Taker-Diesel is The Undertaker's "forgotten" great Wrestlemania match that nobody talks about., while Mysterio and Rhodes stole the show early, but it didn't last long because in the next five there's another two PG Era Mania matches, and three iconic matches that some would perhaps place in their top 10s. A LITTLE controversy later perhaps, we'll see.

"He's not the biggest. He was never the strongest. He was never the fastest. He was overlooked. He went in the sixth round. So with that being said, all of the intangibles that a quarterback is supposed to have, they overlooked it with him because it was burning from inside of him" - Ray Lewis on Tom Brady

Kurt Angle vs Chris Benoit (Wrestlemania X-7)
This is one match i have to say i rather dislike, just goes nowhere for me, seems to be from what i remember Angle going for the ankle lock the whole time (was that a certain stip-type of the match), just falls completley flat, hard to rate it above ** tbh.
Havnt seen the RR2003 match i dont think (unless i have forgot it lol).
