I've been debating this in my head for a little, and I can't seem to decide. They were both awesome matches (though not greatest SD matches ever--think Austin/Benoit from 5/31/01) but I can't decide which was better. Scott Keith sez Edge/Guerrero, by a mere quarter star. I'd like to say that was cooler, but they had No DQ to give it more potential. I think, with a gun to my head, I'd have to say it was Edge/Angle, only cuz I didn't read the spoilers and therefore didn't know who'd win. What do you guys and girls think?
Yeah, that should have been a question mark.

Edge/Angle, just cause I prefer slower paced psychology-based action as opposed to the fast paced high-impact crazy stuff in the Edge/Geurrero match.
they were definitely both great, tho.
"And in front of the entire world, I want to show my little boy that sometimes - just sometimes, you have to FIGHT to be a man." - Michael S. Hickenbottom, the man who does not take part in angles that conflict with his religion, swearing violent revenge on HHH in full view of his two-year-old son. 11:06 PM, EST. 08/05/02. This angle, which has gone from being a "clean" wrestling match to an all-out unsanctioned street fight for bloody revenge is apparently sponsored by the book of Joshua.
I dug both matches and comparing them because they were great examples of their respective genres - the over-the-top extreme spot/bump fest v. the hold and throw, psychological traditional style of match (complete with 2 screwy events.)
Well, I don't go with star ratings or anything like that. I give the slight edge (no pun intended) to the Angle match, because their rivalry has been brewing all year, and it hasn't bored me yet. BUT, I had a big spot in my heart for Guererro, especially after he admitted to ripping up the Scorpion King poster. I thought the movie was boring too myself (Hey, I'm an anime person, so don't even THINK of flaming me!).
That's a confounding question for me. Both had quality efforts over about the same time-frame. Both were well-structured. What factors in most to be the difference right now, as far as I am concerned, was the odd finish and restart on the Edge v. Angle contest. I will probably review both again, but offhand, even with that restart bit, I would have to go with Edge v. Angle as slightly besting Edge v. Guerrero.

"Swag, where you been, dawg?" 'Giving away' the alleged Mania world title match on the same show where they set up a match that will name neither Ziggler nor Del Rio the #1 contender sort of gums up some of what we were expecting.
