Probably Shawn's shining moment as a singles worker, or maybe the one Diesel match. Either way, he's great here as he buys into everything Mankind wants to do, and the match is pretty brilliant as a result. Shawn feels like a real wrestler here, not a caricature of Vince's wet dreams. He's working hard, he seems scared of Mankind by a certain point, and he paces his bumps so that they carry more meaning. Mankind is great too, but the more I watch this the more credit I give Shawn.

a match that I appreciate more every time I see it. The worked Shawn tantrum spot is one of the greatest things he's ever done - loved how he let Mick totally guzzle him (taking him down with a choke hold if I remember right). Also love the flying off the chair Sweet Chin Music - completely crazy!
