A n old rivalry gets a new gimmick, 5 July 2009
Author: bh_tafe3 from Australia

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Steve Austin and Triple H had their first one on one PPV match, Sycho Sid and Vader brawled for the No.1 contendership and Undertaker and Mankind's entertaining rivalry continued with the first ever buried alive match at this decent PPV, strangely not featuring WWE Champion Shawn Michaels (though he did wrestle Goldust in a non televised match after the PPV went off the air).

The first match of the night saw Steve Austin, slowly building a following, taking on Hunter Hearst Helmsley in a good opener. Austin got the win, despite the presence of Mr Perfect, a welcome addition to the WWE, who actually confronted both men.

Following this was a rematch between recently dethroned tag team Champions The Smoking Gunns and the team that had beaten them for the belts; Owen Hart and the British Bulldog. Owen pinned Billy to win a short, but watchable match. Watchabale tag matches were a rarity in the WWE at that stage.

The next match was originally scheduled to be Faarooq and Marc Mero going one on one for the Intercontinental Championship, but Faarooq was supposedly injured backstage, so it was Goldust who got the title shot and was beaten. Mero, as always was accompanied by Sable and Goldust by Terri Runnels. So as always, many of the teenagers in the crowd were far more interested in the babes than the wrestling. This was not a very good match so who could blame them? Next came the big No.1 contender's match between Shawn Michaels' bodyguard Sycho Sid and Michaels' enemy Vader. Sid won a poor match and, to the surprise of many, would be facing his friend Shawn Michaels at Survivor Series. This was the beginning of the end for Vader in the WWE. He would never again be a serious title contender.

Now it was time for the main event, which was to be won by whoever could push their opponent into a grave near the entrance and cover them with dirt. Mankind and Undertaker have another entertaining brawl, and it was the Dead Man who got the win, chokeslamming Mankind and then pouring some dirt on him. After the match The Executioner (Terry Gordy I believe), smashed the Undertaker over the head with a shovel, and with the help of Mankind, Paul Bearer, Justin Bradshaw (later JBL) Goldust, Triple H and Crush, buried the Undertaker alive. This was a suitably dramatic finish to a below average PPV.

Nothing too offensive on it, but nothing really memorable either.
