#6 Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels: WWE Vengeance 2005
Shawn Michaels and Kurt Angle squared off in a WrestleMania 21 rematch on June 26, 2005, at WWE Vengeance. While the first match was magical, and one of the best in 'Mania history, its sequel came mightly close to living up to the hype from the original showdown.
With some intense shots, German Suplexes, a surprising turn-buckle powerbomb by Angle, great reversals and near-falls that truly had the crowd involved led to an amazing high-profile match. This match had all the drama that you'd expect from two of pro wrestling's best.
The only thing that hurt it was that we had already seen something unbelievable from the two earlier that year on the Showcase of the Immortals, WrestleMania. So, even though it came mighty close, it had a tough ask.
Hence, this match, while a classic in its own right, always falls a little short. Yet, that's not a complete story as it is definitely one of the best matches of 2005 and of Kurt Angle's storied career.Published 20 Mar 2019, 04:58 IST
