Wasn't Judgment Day a pleasant surprise? This boasted three excellent matches and the others with the exception of Heidenreich vs Orlando Jordan were acceptable. This was the hottest Smackdown! PPV since No Way Out 2004, and doesn't that seem like ages ago? Results from Judgment Day which was seen by 8000 fans in the arena were as follows:
