What would you say is a classic match ruined only by a shit/non-finish? I remember being on the edge of my seat and losing my shit watching Aiston vs Angle at SummerSlam during the Invasion, feeling in witnessing an all timer… and then that crap at the end happened. I believe your thoughts at the time were along the lines of “If it had a finish, it's match of the year, but it didn't, so it ain't.”
Yeah that was a problem. And of course Mankind vs Shawn, although the DQ finish was a necessary evil there. You can also throw Rock vs HHH Iron Man on the pile.
