Top 20 WrestleMania moments: No. 19

Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho (WrestleMania XIX, 2003)

This was a dream match for me, as Michaels and Jericho are two of my favorite performers. They didn’t disappoint, putting on what was perhaps the best match of the show. Rarely have I ever wanted to see Michaels lose, but this was one of those occasions. I thought Jericho’s career really could have benefited from a win over Michaels on the big stage, but it didn’t happen. Jericho, who was a heel at the time, did get his heat back after the match, however. When Michaels extended his hand as a show of appreciation for the great match they had just had, Jericho responded with an embrace, followed by a low blow to Michaels, who did a tremendous job of selling it.

Jericho said in HBK's DVD that Shawn's sell was like "Why Jericho, why?!"
It was a great match and I still watch it from time to time.

michaels and jericho work so well together. they are really the only reasons i keep watching raw.
