Nah. Hardy's best match was against Angle in TNA a couple of years ago. Incredible stuff. I know Seabs loves it even more than me. I went around ****3/4, he went the full ***** and is considering it to be a GOAT match.

Plus the older and more wrestling I've watched my tastes have differed and evolved. I'd rank the match a bit higher than him, but I agree with near enough everything he says
I actually like the match for the reason you and he dislike it -- I tend to view it as something like a ridiculous action blockbuster done right, where the action, when taken logically, is implausible and strains credulity, but in its ambition to entertain it succeeds wildly. It's like a Schwarzenegger movie directed by Christopher Nolan.

Additionally, it's kind of the ultimate embodiment of "that sort of AE match," and so I think a lot of your potential enjoyment will stem from what sort of in-ring action you prefer (or can tolerate). I tend to like the over-the-top insanity and ubiquitous overbooking of the AE main event scene (although I'm glad it didn't become the standard going forward) so I can forgive this match is ostensible flaws and just sit back and enjoy.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

We being serious? Do I really need to track this match down or am I clearly missing some pretty thick sarcasm?
