On paper and in terms of starpower this is a WM tier match which should be talked about more. And it's actually a really good match. Shawn clearly wearing shoe lifts lmao

It was overshadowed by the evolution fuckery in the end and generally only served the purpose to further Batistas development and Goldbergs feud with HHH.

Anyways I always felt that HBK should have won at least one more World title and have a lengthy run with it for about 4-5 months as he was in fire during that time.

So it was mostly a filler match to further other storylines that’s why it’s not really talked much

As a kid I was really invested in that story surrounding the bounty on Goldberg's head. Great pay off as well. Thank god I didn't know about any dirt sheets who would have spoiled the whole thing.

I didn't care for Shawn Michaels too much here. I only started watching in 2000 so I missed his prior run. To me he was just someone the commentators would talk about as a legend but I never saw him on the top level from a kayfabe POV. His offense seemed weak but he had the great finisher.

I loved Goldberg though. He was my favourite when I saw him a few times for WCW and aside from his match with The Rock, I wanted him to win everything lol.

The Raw match was good and at least deserved a ppv Title match but Face vs Face wasn't taking the luxury over Hunter being Top Heel at the time you knew it only had a chance of being a free tv encounter.
