Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
The only thing I think that really gives the Taker/HHH WM27 match an epic *moment* is the tombstone by HHH and Taker kicking out. I was worried personally after the third pedigree, but after that tombstone was over, if I could stop time and go bet on Taker kicking out or not, I would've bet he wouldn't. It just seemed like the perfect way to end the streak, even if HHH wasn't the right person.
But that moment, with the crowd is an epic moment, and I guess to be fair a lot of the match was building up to that. But the match itself, while telling a great story, just isn't enough to get me to like it when the action pretty much halts half way through, and even before that it was nothing "classic" imo.
I honestly don't think either Taker/HHH matches deserve to be called a classic, just great matches... the cell more so. I can however understand to some extent the cell match being called a classic. The WM27 match... I didn't understand a year ago and don't understand now. But hey, if you liked it more K1ngofK1ngs than anyone else, then more power to ya!
I'm watching you...
