Re: What is the best match of all-time?
To me, Hart/Austin (WM 13) and Angle/Benoit (RR 03) represent the two sides of what makes the "perfect" match. The former an out-and-out brawl filled with hatred, passion, violence, and the most incredible character shift ever in a single match; the latter, a picture-perfect demonstration of technical wrestling free of outside interference, controversy, and all the other nonsense that writers too often lean on to tell what they think is a compelling story. I will never forget the feeling I had, sitting there in the arena in Philadelphia for the Royal Rumble, watching that classic. Its greatness was all the more apparent when compared to the other world title match of the night, the Triple H/Scott Steiner disaster. That match represented everything wrong with WWE at the time, while Benoit/Angle represented everything that was right.
God, this third hour of Raw really drags...
