It sounded good on paper but turned out to be a very poor event
19 December 2004 | by (gothenburg) – See all my reviews

Taboo Tuesday has been hyped up as the first interactive p.p.v. For a week, I think, fans have been voting on wwe.com for #1 contenders to title matches, outfits, match stipulations, etc. Personally I didn't have very high expectations for Taboo Tuesday but I was curious on how they were going to pull it off.

Match 1: Chris Jericho vs. Shelton Benjamin. Intercontinental Championship.

  • Shelton gets the title match after getting 37% of the votes. I voted


for Rhyno. I mean, really, what's the point of voting for a guy who will get a title shot sooner or later anyway? Nothing to complain about here. Good workrate, descent finish, new champion. Nothing spectacular though and of course no build up. Now I hope Jericho can step up to the World Title division, it's in desperate need of contenders. Passable opener.

Match Rating: 3/5

Edge, Benoit and Shawn Michaels are interviewed.

It is shown that Shawn Michaels got 39% of the votes. Edge got 33% and Benoit only 28%! I can't believe how Edge, a guy who even got booed in his home town and is just about to turn heel can get five percent more than the extremely popular Benoit. Strange.

Match 2: Schoolgirl Outfit Diva Battle Royal. Women's Championship.

  • The fans picked school girls outfit for the divas to wear. Whatever.


For the record, I like beautiful women but I'd rather see the creative team taking time trying to make a descent match instead. Trish wins, who could have ever guessed?

Match Rating: 1/5

Match 3: Kane vs. Gene Snitsky. Steel Chain.

  • Usual "big men doing big men stuff" type of match, but this is below


average and it lasts far too long. The ending is the second biggest stinker of the night. After hitting Kane with a steel chair, Snitsky puts the chair on Kane and jumps on it from the top rope for the three-count. Since the chain was the weapon that should be used, why didn't the referee disqualify Snitsky for using a chair? So much for the "Weapon of Choice" stipulation. That means no matter what weapon the fans picked, the match would still have ended the same way. Annoying!

Match Rating: 1/5

Match 4: Eugene vs. Eric Bischoff. Hair vs. Hair.

  • As soon as they said that they would reveal the results after the


match I knew Bischoff was going to lose. Match is nothing if you couldn't guess. Eugene wins in a minute (a longer match would result in a 0/5 rating). Vince McMahon comes out after the match to make sure Bischoff gets humiliated. Like the Monday Nitro reference on Raw wasn't enough. We get it Vince, you won the Monday Night War. Now PLEASE spare us from crap like this.

Match Rating: 1/5

Match 5: Chris Benoit & Edge vs. La Resistance. World Tag Team Championship.

  • Starts out as an above average tag match but gets more and more


boring the longer it goes. I like how they use Edge though. The referee does not see the tag from Benoit and it totally pisses him off. He leaves and Benoit has to fight both La Resistance members alone. And here comes the next incredibly stupid booking decision of the night: Benoit wins! Yes, Benoit defeats the tag team champs by himself. Credibility for the champions, what's that?

Match Rating: 2/5

Match 6: Christy vs. Carmella. Lingerie Pillow Fight.

  • Aaargh, is this wrestling? Honestly, I don't think I will be able to


watch such crap on BOTH Raw and SmackDown in the future. This Diva Search has been an incredible waste of time and if it's going to result in more matches like this… LORD HELP US!

Match Rating: 0/5

Match 7: Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels. World Heavyweight Championship.

  • Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels (who can barely walk) for the 1000th


time. I think can live without seeing this match. Imagine if Edge would have won. Now THAT would have been interesting. Match starts. Triple H is overworking a body part. Just like his last title match against Orton. And the title match before that against Benoit. OK, there might be a good reason for it this time since Michaels' injury is legit. But it sure doesn't make the match better. Short match, HHH wins in usual screwjob fashion when Edge spears HBK.

Match Rating: 2/5

I guess I should mention that all the different match stipulations and voting results have given us loads of crappy segments that has been taking up way too much time.

Match 8: Ric Flair vs. Randy Orton. Steel Cage.

  • WWE fans obviously want to see the same sh*t over and over again.


We've seen 1000 HHH vs. HBK matches and we've seen 1000 Cage Matches, but yet this is what the fans vote for! A submission match could have been great and it would give Orton (and the writers) some serious problems. I wonder how he would pull that off. Anyway, this match is a little better than the usual Flair match. Pretty short, but I don't mind. RKO for the Orton victory to no one's surprise. I'm being kind with the rating here, mostly because it was a special feeling to see Flair main event one last time.

Match Rating: 3/5

The Good: Watchable opener, watchable main event.

The Bad: Taboo Tuesday simply put sucked. The booking was god-awful. Far too much time was wasted on stupid segments. An interactive p.p.v. may have sounded good on paper but it turned out to be a very poor event. Next to Great American Bash, this was the worst p.p.v. of 2004.

Taboo Tuesday Rating: 1/5
