I haven't watched it in years so maybe overrated it a little, but i had it down as my favorite Wrestlemania match ever up until Wrestlemania 25 and HBK/Taker.

It's a great match but not the five star classic many hail it as. ★★★★ for me. Very good back and forth action with a split crowd and some awesome nearfalls towards the end. Enjoyed it a lot.

As it stands with this match, I'm sorry, but once again, I didn't think it was anything special. It was a good match with kind of a hokey finish, and that's it. The main event far surpassed anything in this match.
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks that. Their 2004 matches were so dull and boring. Then they go at it one last time weeks after WM21 and that match blew away everything they did before.

It's an epic match, and one of my favorites. There's a reason it won MOTY for PWI.

Would you expect anything less from either Shawn or Kurt?

One of the greatest matches of all time. A legit dream match at that time. Best ever Angle against HBK is ***** material and it was.

**** 1/2. Great match, just doesn't get my MOTY nod due to a few superior matches in 2005 such as HHH-Batista and Elimination Chamber III (which technically doesn't exist now).

When I do my Wrestlemania rewatches for Wrestlemania system, I'll see which I love more ; MITB I or Angle-HBK.

It's my personal #1 Wrestlemania match of all time, just baaarely edging out Austin vs Hart "I Quit."

It was a no-gimmick, no-stipulation match, just "who's the better of the best?" And it had everything I loved about a wrestling match: great storyline heading in, good pacing, storytelling, a few big spots/bumps, stiffness, various counters and finishers, and a fantastic, nail-biting ending.

The ONLY major complaint is a personal one: I wish it had taken place in one of the "larger arena" Wrestlemanias, just to give it that REALLY big-time feel.

The feud was great and the build was really well. The match itself was very good and did live upto the hype.

One of the best matches ever at Wrestlemania

One of the greatest WM matches of all time. Though there arent many WM matches involving either of these wrestlers that wasnt great!

It's the 2nd best match I've ever seen live (first being the Austin-HHH 3 stages of hell match). Definitely the best crowd reaction of any match I've seen, lost my voice by the end but it was worth it. I LOVED how HBK went a bit heel-ish halfway through the match when he knew the crowd was split 50-50. It's definitely a 'Mania classic and I do agree with the other poster that said it'd be even better if it were at one of the larger arenas.
