The invasion begins
27 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Match 1: King of the Ring Tournament Semi-Final Kurt Angle vs. Christian Not a bad start but I expected more, specially with Angle. It was still solid tho. 5/10

Match 2: King of the Ring Tournament Semi-Final Edge vs. Rhyno Solid again but nothing great. 5.5/10

Match 3: WWF Tag Team Championship Dudley Boys vs Spike Dudley and ? Good choice of partner for Spike. A good match but again the level of the PPV was pretty average so far. 5/10

Match 4: King of the Ring Tournament Final ? vs. ? The final. I'm not a fan of King of the ring tournaments on PPV. At least, only the final should feature on the PPV. Still, a good match. I have the feeling it could have been better. Still good tho. 6/10

Match 4: WWF Light Heavyweight Championship Jeff Hardy vs. X-Pac Two pretty spectacular wrestlers who never showed what they are capable of in the match. Again, it wasn't bad but still average, we expect more from a PPV. 4.5/10

DDP-Taker confrontation. The confrontation was well build up. It was pretty one sided but I actually expected it to be more brutal. Taker is worth more than being used for storyline builders on PPV. 6/10

Match 5: Street Fight Kurt Angle vs. Shane McMahon Match. Match of the night by far. Very brutal. Shane is impressive, very impressive for a non wrestler. The match feature a move that could have literally cost Shane's life. Amazing match. 9.5/10

Match 6: WWF World Heavyweight Championship - Triple Threat Match Steve Austin vs. Chris Benoit vs. Chris Jericho Lots of speculations and rumors around this one. Well build up. Not the best triple threat match ever but certainly not a bad one. I know Austin is the heel..still, sometimes he appeared too weak, which is bad. So solid match for sure featuring the beginning of Invasion. The ending tho was a little disappointing. Still deserves a 7/10

Overall an average PPV. Angle vs. Shane comes out as one of the highlights of the year tho. Main event was good, the KOR final was quite good too but the other matches are all average.
