Best of WWE #54: Triple H vs Shawn Michaels, Raw 2003
The main event of the ‘Raw is War’ show on December 29, 2003 at San Antonio, Texas featured hometown hero Shawn Michaels taking on the World Heavyweight Champion Triple H in a singles match for the World Heavyweight Championship. Both men gave their all in this enduring match that lasted more than 30 minutes with plenty of near-falls. In the end, it seemed like Shawn pulled off a major upset victory when he pinned Triple H. However, Eric Bischoff, who was the acting referee in place of the injured Earl Hebner, ruled it out as a double pin-fall and declared Triple H as the World Heavyweight Champion. Notwithstanding this biased refereeing by Bischoff, ‘Texas Rattlesnake’ Stone Cold Steve Austin made a shocking return and hit a stunner on him. Though this match had a controversial finish, the quality of wrestling was supreme making it one of the best matches in WWE history.
