Did we choose to forget the classics like Undertaker versus Psycho Sid, Giant Gonzales, Big Boss Man and King Kong Bundy? Taker has had a lot of garbage matches at Mania, bro. The fact that he has had a lot of matches doesn't make them good or raise the "overall" quality of any of them.
I find the psycho sid to be good overall match not so munch Giant Gonzales that one was bad. Some of Taker earlier WM matches had to do with his character. It wasn't really all his fault in grand scheme of things.

You absolutely CAN compare them because we are talking about an overall body of work here. His gimmick held him back early on until the time Foley came around, you say? Undertaker worked one of the worst matches I have ever seen against the Big Boss Man AFTER Foley got hot.

Face it, Taker has had some garbage matches at Wrestlemania. His work as of late has been top notch, but don't go throwing around blame because a lot of his bad matches had so much to do with his rawness.

Two completely different types of wretlers, with two different gimmicks, having pretty much completly different sorts of matches, comparable? Not IMO.

And yes, i do know that Taker has had a fair few stinkers, im not disputing that.

And im not cmapring their body of work, i was talking about what they both had to work with at Mania's too, that is the discussion here.......Wrestlemania

Im not knocking Taker btw, ive been a mark for him since he debuted in WWF...

Yes, their body of work AT WRESTLEMANIA. Did that really go over your head when I didn't address anything other than Taker's matches AT WRESTLEMANIA? Also, gimmicks have nothing to do with match quality unless you're playing a stupid comedic role like Santino- why do you keep arguing this?

@ you.

Re: Rank Shawn Michaels' Wrestlemania matches

Taker had to go up against GARBAGE opponents early, So I think it's only fair to compare his matches with Trips, Flair, Kane, Orton, Batista, Edge, HBK.

Body Of Work: Shawn
Overall: Arguable for either side
