As someone whose favorite wrestler is Shawn Michaels, you would think that HBK facing his successor would be one of my favorite matches, but it isn't. I happen to agree that this match is incredibly over-rated, for reasons I'm not quite sure of. I didn't see the big deal back in 2003, and nor on every rewatch (and I've tried many times).
I think it's a good match, but it's not the staggering classic people make it out to be. It feels like it just kind of gets stuck in 2nd gear. The buildup was great and there's nothing overtly wrong with the match, but it just never had me jumping. To me, it's a ***3/4 match, no more.
