HBK vs Undertaker at WrestleMania, which match was better?

WrestleMania 25 or 26? Just curious to hear everyone's opinion. I'm going rewatch them both then I'll chime in.

Both are 5-stars for me, but WM25 was little bit better.

WM 25 is better by a little margin , I prefer the storytelling in this one .

Re: HBK vs Undertaker at WrestleMania, which match was better?

I went for 26, I'm a sucker for storytelling and the streak versus the career was perfectly sold by Taker and HBK the respect shown in the ring by both was top drawer.
This was the perfect way for HBK to bow out trying to steal the show at Mania by beating the streak but failing.

Re: HBK vs Undertaker at WrestleMania, which match was better?

I go with the XXV match just because it came first. For example, when Michaells kicked out of the Tombstone the first time at XXV, it was legitimately shocking. At XXVI (and honestly, every year that followed), it was expected.

The XXVI was built up better by putting Shawn's career on the line and continuing that had been established at XXV, but the execution of the match itself, while great, wasn't quite up to par with the XXV match.

Wrestlemania 25. I was in awe watching that match. Two men in their mid 40s delivering arguably the greatest WWE match of all time is an astonishing feat.

That's not to take anything away from WM 26, either. Amazing as well.

Re: HBK vs Undertaker at WrestleMania, which match was better?

I look at both of those WrestleMania matches equally to be honest. I would still prefer to watch their Hell In A Cell match any day over those two WM matches.

I consider them both 5 star matches but their WM XXV encounter is my all time favorite match.

Also, their HIAC atBad Blood 1997 was 5 stars as well. Taker and Shawn are beasts for having 3 five star matches against each other.

Re: HBK vs Undertaker at WrestleMania, which match was better?

After watching both back to back, I went with 25. Both were great, and 26 being HBK's retirement match made it hard to go against, but 25 just had too many awesome moments. HBK's moonsault to the outside where he hit the floor. Taker's plancha where he hits the cameraman. HBK kicking out of the tombstone. It was just incredible.
