MachoMadness1988, what are your favorite tag team matches?
Another one I want to mention is Austin/Michaels vs. Owen/Bulldog from Raw 5/26/97. The pace they set is insanely good and all four guys' chemistry together was close to flawless in this match. HOT tag team match.
I love both Taker/Michaels WM matches, but I'm starting to think the first one slightly edges out the second. Theres just something in the atmosphere surrounding the match that raises it higher for me, but I could easily change my mind with another watch of both.
Well technically, it does have plenty of spots in it. But the term spot fest has been killed on this forum. People use it as a negative, when actually its HOW and WHY the spots are done that makes it a positive or negative. Undertaker/HBK uses the spots to bring in the crowd and add emotion and play off both characters and their history together and their careers in general.
That said, I prefer their WM 26 match . Both are ***** for me though.
New Update - May 26th 2016 - Big Cal Plays - Oniken!!!
^I thought spot-fest was used to describe matches in which spots are executed with no rhyme or reason? I also prefer the Wrestlemania XXVI match between the two.
Speaking of which, who is everyone's favourite opponents (and partners actually, now that we're on the subject of tag matches) for their favourite wrestlers? Some of my preferences are:
Shawn and Undertaker against each other
Edge against Cena, with or against Christian
Jericho against Shawn or Benoit
I re-watched HBK/Taker from WM25 not too long ago and it actually lowered my rating for the match. Probably need to watch it a 3rd time, but for some reason it doesn't do the same for me as it used to. I used to have it as my GOAT, but not anymore. I feel like it's been overrated a lot on here.
I think the reason for this is that when you rewatch these types of matches you lose the shock factor, and suspense. It's alot better when watching live.
