I will agree that Angle would have the tendency to no-sell some of his opponent's offense (especially after 2001), but I've always loved his work.

Meh, I could rattle a few ****1/2 + Angle matches off the top of my head right now, so I guess he couldn't have been too bad. I'd definitely put him up there when it comes to the best of his generation/era, but I wouldn't necessarily call him one of the GOATs, nor would I even associate him with the GOATs. He's a special talent and really entertaining, but I could name plenty of more entertaining guys out there.

I can see why people like and love Angle, and I can see why people dislike Angle, also. I'm not too fussed about him either way - He serves a purpose, he puts on a fun match here and there and he gets the job done. I can't really ask much more from someone at the age of 44, tbh.

I generally prefer Angle in triple threat and tag team matches. Much of his one vs one stuff I just can't get into. He has had some great stuff though. But I disagree that he's one of the best wrestlers WWE has had.

I'm a spots guy when it comes to ladder matches and hardcore matches.

There's a lot of wrestlers that people say are good based off of rep and stuff. Tiger Mask and the Dynamite Kid weren't any good, but their matches are called classics. They aren't. But my least favourite is when people call a wrestler great just purely because he has a technical gimmick or whatever. Lance Storm's an example. Seriously, what's good about Lance Storm? What does he do well? Where are his good matches? Where has he carried an opponent? There is absolutely nothing from Lance Storm that shows me he's a better worker than Batista or JBL. This isn't direct talking about Angle, but I don't hate Angle enough to shit on him any chance I can get.

at least this guy admits it. Telling me Angle has great psychology.....he doesn't. Telling me you like watching his high-octane no-selling sprint mode.....well I'm not going to crap on you for that. You like what you like.

EDIT- Personally I thought the Shane McMahon match was fucking dreadful and I vow to never watch it again. Probably my least favourite Angle match which is saying something.

Im intrigued into what you guys think of the WHC title scene from Survivor Series 06 to Wrestlemania 23. Batista didnt defend the title at either Armageddon or No Way Out (which were both SmackDown only PPV's), and it was obvious he wasnt going to lose the title to Kennedy at the Rumble. I remember being really annoyed at the time that it seemed like they knew they were doing Taker/Batista since Survivor Series, but didnt really give us any suspense it could of been anything else and didnt bother giving us any other title matches. A top tier title should always main event its Brand-only PPV and I couldnt believe it when they werent giving us a title match 2 SmackDown PPV's in a row.

Ratings.
Batista/King Booker (Survivor Series) - **1/2
Batista & Cena/King Booker & Finlay (Armageddon)- **1/2
Batista/Kennedy (Royal Rumble) - **1/2
Batista & Taker/HBK & Cena (No Way Out) - ****1/4
Batista/Taker (Wrestlemania) - ****

Why? I ask partly because I dig that match a lot (it'll probably be on my list) and partly because I don't see any way any match can be worse than the Jeff Hardy match.

Batista/King Booker (Survivor Series) - *
Batista & Cena/King Booker & Finlay (Armageddon)- **
Batista/Kennedy (Royal Rumble) - **
Batista & Taker/HBK & Cena (No Way Out) - ****
Batista/Taker (Wrestlemania) - ****1/2

It wasn't the greatest reign at all but i do remember a non title match between Batista/Finlay being much better than anything bar NWO/WM matches.
