Re: The Shield vs. Team Hell No & Ryback - MOTY
The thing is, this match and Taker/Triple H are very different matches so it's really hard to compare. This match had amazing spots but that's what I think this match was.
For those of you that thought there was no way Taker would lose, then it's understood why you would feel no emotion or no energy towards that match. But for us that even had that slight doubt that Taker can lose, we were all emotionally attached to that match. We were all into the outcome of the match, and the back and forth near falls between Taker and Triple H. Those were the things we were at the edge of our seat for.
The things that we were at the edge of our seat for the TLC match wasn't who was going to win or not, it was for the incredible non stop action, and unbelievable spots. We were at the edge of our seat for the superplex off the table, or for the "Holy shit is Seth Rollins going to pull a Jeff Hardy?!". We weren't thinking about the outcome of the match, we were thinking about what's going to happen next. It was a match where the outcome wasn't important because like many people said during the PPV, "I don't care who wins this match, this match is amazing!".
And this is why I think Taker/Triple H should be MOTY, because it mattered who won or lost that match. I'm not taking anything away from this match though. It was fucking amazing. This is probably the closest thing we'll ever get to those triple threat tag team TLC matches from the attitude era. Fucking cray.
