Even though Spider-Man said he made his appearance as a member of Black Spectre early to sell the story Murdock was pushing, I think we know his so-called "bonus", ruining Matt's date, was the real reason. Which is a dick move, no doubt, even without taking into account the fact it shook Kirsten pretty badly.
Even so, I really enjoyed it, maybe precisely because Spidey admitted that he wanted to mess with Matt some. I said once, during Shadowland, that I really wanted it to end with Spider-Man beating Daredevil. The reason was I was tired of seeing it always go the other way. When they tussle, Daredevil always seem to win, though the writers always emphasize that he got Spidey angry and swinging wildly, or that it took a strong effort from Hornhead just knock Spidey out for a minute or two. All the same, Daredevil wins.
He usually seems to beat Spidey every other way too. Outsmarts him, uses him towards some end Spidey wouldn't otherwise agree with. The Gang war storyline in Amazing Spider-Man back in the '80s for example, where Daredevil tricked Spider-Man into helping get the Kingpin back in power, because it was the best result they could hope for. Spidey's Daffy, Daredevil is Bugs Bunny, which is pretty sad when you consider that Matt Murdock's basically been Wil E. Coyote for the last few decades. No matter what he tries, it backfires, blows up in his face, goes horribly awry.
Except when it comes to Spider-Man, apparently. So it was nice to see Webs pull one over on Daredevil for once. Even if it was a very rude thing to do.
