Had some weak matches, but turned out Excellent
11 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Match 1: The Dudley Boyz vs Rey Mysterio, Billy Kidman & Paul London - A well needed opener for this show. A great chemistry of power from Bubba Ray and D-Von along with a great display of high flying from Spike Dudley, Rey Mysterio, Billy Kidman and Paul London. The cruiserweights took the fight to the Dudleys with their speed. It didn't pay off, because after all of it the Dudley Boyz took the win.

Match 2: Kane vs Matt Hardy - Not a bad match. This was to determine who was marrying Lita. Matt Hardy was fighting off Kane with all he really had left over from their Vengeance encounter. Kane dominates with his power moves, while Hardy uses his showman like persona to carry some competition out of the powerhouse Kane. In the end Kane lands a chokeslam for the win and he ends up marrying Lita later that year.

Match 3: John Cena vs Booker T - This was the first match in a Best of 5 series for the vacant United States title. Not really a bad match from these two, but more of a mediocre match instead. They carry a somewhat OK match that lasts a little over five minutes. Cena hits an FU for the win and he advances over Booker in the series.

Match 4: Edge (c) vs Chris Jericho vs Batista in a Triple Threat match for the Intercontinental Championship - Batista has been billed as a huge powerhouse since joining Evolution, at this point he really wasn't known for his wrestling skills or in ring ability. He looked pretty horrible in this particular match. Once we got to Edge and Jericho just fighting each other it got a little more interesting. Pedictably we see Edge retain in the end. Mediocre match once again.

Match 5: Kurt Angle vs Eddie Guerrero - Top notch match once again from these two. They both had some impressive battles in 2004. Angle continuously works on Eddie's ankle, which gives him the edge in the end. Guerrero uses his usual tactics in the ring and it makes for a pretty great match. In the end Angle makes Guerrero tap out to his signature ankle lock.

Match 6: Eugene vs Triple H - Fairly lousy match from these two. Triple H takes on Eugene because he cost him his chance to regain the World Championship from Chris Benoit at the previous Vengeance event. The longer the match went it looked more and more lackluster. Triple H wasn't even able to beat Eugene on his own, he needed to help of Ric Flair to beat this guy. Triple H should try winning matches on his own for a change instead of relying on Flair all the time. In the end he lands a pedigree on Eugene for the win.

Match 7: Team Dream vs Team Diva in Diva Dodgeball - Uh interesting stuff at best. The Team Dream wins.

Match 8: JBL (c) vs Undertaker for the WWE Championship - JBL proves why he is such a horrible wrestler once again. The only reason this match is considerably average is do to the Undertaker carrying JBL and his terrible wrestling skills. Undertaker reveals a whole lot about JBL and his bad wrestling skills in this match. It was a pretty lousy WWE title match on this big of an event. The ending isn't clear cut, but it is also very entertaining to see JBL get put through his limo.

Match 9: Chris Benoit (c) vs Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship - Benoit was in the same spot that his challenger was in, only at Wrestlemania XX. The match was better than the WWE Championship encounter before it. Orton shines bright in this one, showing a ton of promise as a main eventer. Benoit proves that he was a great Champion for as long as he held it, taking the fight to his young challenger. In the end Orton lands an RKO to claim the gold and be noted as the youngest World Champon in history. Too bad he didn't hold it that long.
