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.

4. No Holds Barred Match: The Undertaker vs. Triple H - WrestleMania XXVII

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I'm not too fond of HBK/Jericho @ Mania 19 myself. It's an OK match but nothing close to the classic some people consider it to be. Their stuff in 08 is much better and deserving of praise imo.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

It's a good match but not the one that stole the show or is up to the hype it's given. I honestly thought McMahon/Hogan was a lot better but, I guess it did have a much bigger story going into it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Other than Vince going off a ladder and that camera angle where he's rising above the apron covered in blood, I didn't like that match much. Story was great though.

I'm the opposite lol. Love their 03 stuff (WM and the often forgotten Raw rematch), and think most of their 08 stuff is overrated .

Hogan/Vince was trash. Story going into it was great, actual match was shitty. One of the very few blips at an otherwise incredible event (GOAT WM and PPV IMO).

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Vince coming up at the side of the ring like the devil is so much fucking win. I love that lol. Rock/Austin is MOTN of that PPV though imo. Jericho/HBK was just OK.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Vince with blood pouring down him as he raises up from the floor to the apron is an incredible image. Piper showing up made me mark. Other than that, the match can go fuck itself.

Rock/Austin is incredible, and I'd give it MOTN as well (gone slightly lower on HBK/Jericho on last watch but still think its great). Also think its their best match together. Wonderful story told throughout, and OMG Rock actually had a GREAT PROMO before hand as well. I mean, fuck, if ROCK impresses me with a promo then something must be good!

I actually let out an exasperated laugh when he did that.
