The differences between this match and the Austin vs Hart match are really miniscule, and it is hard to really claim one was better than the other. That being said, Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle is the ultimate masterpiece to take place at Wrestlemania. Shawn was beginning to get up there in years, but he showed no effect of that when going toe-to-toe against a mat genius in Angle.
Kurt was really at the top of his game in this point, and not only was his awesome in-ring ability on display but his talent for drama and storytelling as well. An unpredictable match with numerous false-finishes, this is really what pro-wrestling should be all about.
A great story went along with this match as well, with Kurt angry at Michaels for stealing his thunder way back in 1996 when Angle won his gold medal and the only thing people were talking about was HBK gliding down from the rafters and putting on a wrestling clinic. Kurt had something to prove that night, and he succeeded in forcing Michaels to tap out to the ankle lock.
Just like Austin vs Hart, this match was really the epitome of what pro wrestling is. It's raw, it's violent, it's dramatic and sometimes the bad guy wins. These two matches are the peak of Wrestlemania, and what people are wishing to see on the grandest stage of them all.
