One great match....
24 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

....and it most certainly is NOT the heavily hyped main event, but the match right before it.

1) Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero (RIP) vs. The Basham Brothers (for the WWE tag team title). Good teamwork by the Bashams, who go for an interesting mix of power moves and technical holds. Eddie does some creative cheating, but Rey Mysterio fans may be a little disappointed in this match, as he doesn't get to do much of his usual high-flying and spends most of the time on the receiving end of the Basham's offense. **1/2

Rookie Diva Contest (RDC) - Round 1. Joy, Rochelle, Lauren and Michelle walk down the aisle, enter the ring....and the contest is over. I guess the object of the contest is "which woman looks better walking in a revealing dress". I pick Torrie Wilson.

2) Heidenreich vs. Booker T. First of all, Heidenreich's "psycho" gimmick is stale. Victoria already did it - and did it better - three years ago. And he is also totally static in the ring. Booker T tries to wake up the crowd a little, but fails. A poor match with a poor DQ finish. *

3) Paul London vs. Chavo Guerrero vs. Shannon Moore vs. Spike Dudley vs. Akio vs. Funaki. Elimination Match for the cruiserweight title. Fast-paced action, as you'd expect from the cruiserweights, in fact TOO fast, almost rushed (it reminded me of the women's fatal 4-way in "Bad Blood 2004"). In my opinion, Shannon Moore gives the best show, but he only has 2 minutes of action. The crowd was pretty much dead throughout

  • just a like a sign that a guy holds says, the division definitely

needs a bigger push. **1/2

RDC - Round 2. Talent competition. Joy massages Torrie. Rochelle tells a bad joke. Lauren dances a little. Michelle finally does something wrestling-related by body-slamming Dawn Marie, proving that at least this time they made the right choice by keeping only her in the roster.

4) Luther Reigns vs. The Undertaker. Boooooooriiiiiiiing! Barely any wrestling holds in this one, but plenty of fake-looking punches. The commentators can hype up The Undertaker as much as they want, I just plain don't like the guy. *

RCD - Round 3. Swimsuit competition. Self-explanatory. The crowd seems to prefer Michelle. The fans on voted for Joy. I'd still pick Torrie over any of them.

5) Kurt Angle vs. John Cena. A very good match, mostly thanks to Angle, who is without a doubt the best wrestler in this PPV. Very well-thought-out in terms of psychology, with Angle going for some exceptional freestyle mat wrestling and Cena trying to counter with a street-fighting style. Easily the match of the night. ***1/2

6) JBL vs. The Big Show. Barbed Wire Steel Cage Match for the WWE title. If you're looking for blood, you'll find it here. If you're looking for quality wrestling, you won't. JBL spends more time trying to find a way out of the cage than trying to fight The Big Show (smart move on his part). Funny ending, though. **

By the way, the "Wrestlemania 21" teasers are surprisingly successful.
