    HBK/Taker 1 or 2 ?

    Which Wrestlemania match up between the two "future hall of famers" Mr. Wrestlemania and The Phenom did you like more?

    The first one, in my mind, was a ***** classic. So that wins. That said, the last one was phenomenal too.

    Both were great matches, but everyone expected the second one to be immense. The first was better for the expectation.

    I'm gonna have to watch them both again, but for now I'll go with number one.

    Taker's got a perfect set up to retire at Wrestlemania 27 against John Cena because of the ending HBK/Taker II

    Really? Because pretty much everyone I heard from expected it to not be nearly as good.

    Easily the second one. The first is probably my pick for most overrated match of 2009.

    A lot of people were actually expected the 2nd match to be of the same quality as the first if not better. Other people just expected a great match but like you said not up the same quality of last year.

    Since Wrestlemania wasn't as good as I expected it to be. HBK/Taker II stole the show. It was one of the best matches since Cena/RVD at ECW One Night Stand

    Both matches in my opinion will go in my list of favorite wrestling matches, but I have to say Hbk/Taker 1, Theres nothing like two legends create a match for the ages and witnessing it live.

    Thank you for all the great matches Shawn. HBK WILL LIVE FOREVER!!

    I thought the bigger spots (moonsault on table/tombstone on outside) in the rematch were better, but the middle wasn't executed as well. I thought the 'injury angle' didn't add much to the match.

    Second. I've heard from a lot of people that they didn't think it was as good as last year, but I personally believe it's simply because the bout lost it's "new match smell". Technically, I'd say this bout was better, while maybe not as passion driven there was definitely fewer-to-no botches. Taker sold the leg splendidly, and the ending was brilliant. I'd most definitely say that the match rivalled, if not not, matched up to last years encounter. While they both have their short-comings, I'd rate them the same, and quite possibly the second higher.

    I'll have to go back and was the 25 match again, I haven't seen it in a while. The botched spot with Snuka from the match was one of the craziest things I've ever seen, so that would definitely affect my opinion.

    When I say the dive was a botch, I mean that in the best way possible. If Snuka had just caught him, it still would've been neat. But because he missed him and Taker basically landed on his head, it was one of the sickest bumps/spots of the night and the match.

    I enjoyed the Wrestlemania 26 match more of the two. While I think the first match was better paced and more structured, the second was quite simply more entertaining and far better executed.

    The second one. I, personally, loved the work with the leg, the intrigue it added and the story they were telling.

    Although, I think the first one is a bit overrated. Probably about ****1/2, not the "best match ever" like I've seen. The second one is probably around that area, maybe up to ****3/4.
