I just watched Stone Cold's The Bottom Line and I got to say the documentary is the best I've seen from WWE. I haven't watched Rise & Fall of ECW yet, though. So it may change. And SummerSlam 04 review coming very soon, most likely tomorrow.

I don't remember the specific "stupid shit" from their Armageddon match, but it was definitely a disappointment. The HIAC, while a decent match, was built up to be some sort of epic, and it fell short as well. Their Raw 03 match and SS 02 matches were good, but the other stuff just fell short for the type of match you'd expect from two of the best in the company.
Someone please give me a rundown of the Armageddon match to refresh my memory.
Oh God, YES! I couldn't agree with what you said about the HHH/HBK feud any more. It was so forced and they were desperate at making it look so OMGITZTHEMOSTINTENSEFEUDEVER!!!111 that it ended up sucking for the most part. I personally don't hate the 3SOH match because I'm a sucker for SPOTZ~! but the match really is a mess. One example of it is when HBK and HHH are fighting on top of the steel cage in the second fall and Flair randomly comes out and sets up the tables outside the ring for the final bump in the ladder fall.
For the rest of their matches, I loved SS02, Raw 03 was good, RR04 is alright, their triple threat series with Benoit are classics (more for Benoit, though) and the HIAC match is fucking terrible and almost as boring as the HIAC with Nash. I'm yet to see TT04, though.
HHH's 03 matches:
Steiner I - * (**** for comedy)
Steiner II - * (Just boring, although the "Steiner sucks" chants cracked me up)
Booker T - *** (Average and just underwhelming with the dead crowd)
6 man tag - *1/2 (Zzzzzzzzzzz)
Nash I - 1/2* (Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
Nash II - 1/4* (Super zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz)
Elimination Chamber - **1/2 (Shitty booking and way too short)
Goldberg I - **1/2 (Not very bad for Goldberg standards)
Goldberg II - *1/2 (Horribly uninteresting)
Goldberg/Kane - ***1/4 (Finally something watchable)
HBK - ****
