This was just awful. Hardly any matches were good and the McMahon clan, Shane aside were on this PPV for far too long.
Match 1 sees Tajiri face off against Rey Mysterio. It was OK, but could have better, especially considering the talent of the two. Things get worse as Chris Benoit is shoved into a pointless feud with A-Train in a forgettable encounter next up. On an interesting note Benoit nearly gets crippled (no pun intended) by A-Train when he drops him on a steel chair on his head (One of my least favourite performers ever A-Train bored the arse of this writer in every match he had. I mean he was around for 5 years and all that sticks in my mind about A-Train is that Jim Ross once said that he had a large hat size and fans demanded that he shave his back.) Things do pick up but only slightly, Matt Hardy challenges one legged wrestler Zach Gowen in a good effort. But next up The APA challenge the impressive Basham Brothers in a solid but unspectacular tag team match.
The next match sees a first father and daughter I quit match, putting Vince McMahon and daughter Stephanie in a crap match. McMahon won (obviously) but this was just poor. Next match up sees Eddie Guerrero battling Big Show in a good match, which saved the PPV from being one of the worst ever. This was the case in the John Cena vs Kurt Angle match up, it was acceptable.
Then the main event The Undertaker challenges Brock Lesnar in a bikers chain match. This was passable. The interference of the FBI didn't do it any favours either.
Overall a terrible PPV!
Mysterio vs Tajiri - 5/10 Benoit vs A-Train - 3.5/10 Gowen vs Hardy - 7/10 Bashams/APA -5.5/10 Guerrero vs Show - 7.5/10 Angle vs Cena - 7.5/10 McMahon vs McMahon - 2.5/10 Taker vs Lesnar - 4.5/10
