Enjoyable event, but the main event leaves a sour taste in your mouth
10 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Match 1: La Resistance (c) vs The Dudley Boyz for the World Tag Team Championship - The Dudleys are the fan favorites heading into this battle. The fans are in their corner, hoping they will take the straps from Sylvain Grenier and Rene Dupree. Just when we think they have another title reign added to their list we see the debut of Rob Conway, who is able to help Grenier and Dupree score the victory and retain their titles.

Match 2: Undertaker vs A-Train - A surprisingly very good match. Sadly this was booked a little too low in the opening of the card. The Undertaker is a guy that should have been competing later on in the show. Secondly he shouldn't have been feuding with a guy like the A-Train. Even though the A-Train feud was a little off balance, the match was very good. A-Train dominates the Undertaker for a little while. Then we see Taker fight back into a huge momentum shift. In the end he is able to defeat A-Train much to the delight of the fans.

Match 3: Shane McMahon vs Eric Bischoff - A great battle between these two non-wrestler personalities. Shane takes the fight to Bischoff the entire time. We see some interference from Jonathan Coachman on Bischoff's behalf, but otherwise McMahon battles both and avenges what Bischoff did to his mother Linda. Great battle.

Match 4: Eddie Guerrero (c) vs Rhino vs Chris Benoit vs Tajiri for the United States Championship - Eddie Guerrero was a really great Champion with the newly activated United States title. Benoit was in hot pursuit after being screwed by Rhino in the tournament final at Vengeance. Tajiri was added into the mix as well to give the match that extra edge. Guerrero does a great job of defending. He capitalizes on everything he can. In the end it all works out when he retains his title.

Match 5: Kurt Angle (c) vs Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship - The match of the night. An incredible war for the WWE Championship, pitting two of SmackDown's greatest athletes. At Wrestlemania earlier in the year we see Lesnar as the face and Angle as the heel, but now the roles are reversed with everyone revving Angle to retain. They went back and forth for over twenty minutes doing everything from F5's to Ankles locks and Angle slams. In the end Angle is able to finally get Lesnar down to retain his title. Epic match.

Match 6: Kane vs Rob Van Dam - This match could have been a lot better. It was expected for Kane to win, because he had just recently removed the mask and turned heel once again. Rob Van Dam did a nice job of taking on Kane in this No Disqualification match, but to no surprise we see Kane pick up the win with his new, no mask, look. The only problem was the off the top rope botch by Kane when he went to jump off the top rope from the turnbuckle to the outside. Otherwise it was an agreeable time filler.

Match 7: Triple H (c) vs Shawn Michaels vs Goldberg vs Chris Jericho vs Kevin Nash vs Randy Orton in an Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight Championship - An extremely wasteful main event. The match quickly starts off with the two most agile competitors, Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels. They are soon followed by Randy Orton and then the big man Kevin Nash. Shortly after arriving into the match Nash is pinned and eliminated first by Shawn Michaels. A waste of the largest man in the match. Goldberg then makes his entrance and the match quickly dies. Goldberg eliminates Orton with a spear, then Michaels after a spear and jackhammer, we then seal the deal with another spear and jackhammer eliminating Jericho. That basically killed the whole match, everyone got eliminated way too fast. Triple H then enters after Goldberg destroys his pod, but with help from Evolution and a sledgehammer he retains the gold. A wasted main event with Triple H still emerging as champion in the end.
