I am a firm believer in matches being reviewed and rated in real time as time, style changes and the general feelings of the viewer naturally shift over time. And this match is clearly a good case of this having now watched this match today. Not shockingly, it doesn't hold up as well today it did nearly 30 years ago. The main problem with the match is basically both guys wanting to get their shine in with little desire to make the other guy look good. The ref bump and the long bear hug spot also diminished this match for me. It's still very fun and an important moment for all involved. But, it's not a classic match.
