Re: Undertaker vs. Psycho Sid - Wrestlemania 13
I hate this match, but I don't blame either guy.
The match had ZERO build up. It was just a mess from the beginning with the title constantly changing hands to whether or not Michaels was going to be there to the Rumble win for Austin being erased. It was clear they had no definitive direction in mind and they just slapped this together just to give fans an Undertaker win.
Because of that, the match was kind of boring and felt like it had no business being at the top of a Wrestlemania card and both guys pretty much got stuck in a bad position, in addition to having to follow the outstanding Bret/Austin match.
The one thing this match had going for it, an Undertaker title win, was tainted because they had to have Bret help Taker win for some reason. So the fans wait six years for Taker to win the title again and you can't even let him do it clean? That decision still floors me.
Looking back on it all, Taker should have won the Rumble, Sid never should have lost the belt to Shawn and head into Wrestlemania with two wins over Shawn & Bret under his belt and a lot of credibility. But everything was just fucked up, probably due to the famous "I lost my Smile" bit from Shawn, ha ha.
