One Night Stand 2006 wasn't as good as the 2005 installment, but it still was a great event in it's own right.
Match 1: Taz vs Jerry Lawler - The shortest match of the evening. Lawler portrays himself as a jack*** the entire 35 seconds of this match. He slaps Joey Styles on the way out and then Joey goes for revenge only with a bad ending. Taz then plays off of that and locks in the Tazmission for the submission win.
Match 2: Kurt Angle vs Randy Orton - This match was literally not right on this card. Kurt Angle may have been a new ECW talent at this time, but he should have waited for the new show ECW instead of holding an open challenge at the pay per view. This is a great match either way. Orton plays the invading bad guy, even though Angle was an invader last year (strange right?). They go for a good 15 minutes until Angle finally locks the ankle lock for the tap out win. The ECW crowd taunts Orton after his loss.
Match 3: The F.B.I. vs Super Crazy & Yoshihiro Tajiri - Tajiri uses his ECW name unlike last year this time around. These guys stole the show again only with Tony Mamaluke added in this time. The match was very fast paced and great for a time filler sort of match. The F.B.I. scores the win in the end. After the contest Big Show comes out and assaults all four men.
Match 4: Rey Mysterio (c) vs Sabu for the World Heavyweight Campionship
The greatest dream match to ever come to life. They did not let us
down at all. Sabu looks dominate early on, but Mysterio finds his way into countering Sabu's moves. The crowd was behind Sabu the entire time, with select Mysterio chants added in at the right time. The ending was a little to predictable, because Sabu wasn't headed for the World Heavyweight Championship and Rey wasn't ready to drop it. Also the ending was predictable because they wouldn't let a WWE guy beat an ECW fan favorite like Sabu. They would have rioted if Mysterio retained. So they both go through a table and the match is called to a close.
Match 5: Mick Foley, Edge & Lita vs Tommy Dreamer, Terry Funk & Beulah McGillicutty - An awesome intergender extreme rules match. Funk and Foley can still entertain as if they were in their prime again. They all take it to the max with a ton of tables, barbed wire covered weapons, chairs, etc. The ending really sucked when Edge speared Beulah for the win. The team of Dreamer, Funk and Beulah should have taken the win in this one. But still a great match.
Match 6: Balls Mahoney vs Masato Tanaka - Just a basic simple time filler. Not Mahoney's best and not Tanaka's best either. They both plant each with a few chair shots and then the match is shortly over. So they do a decent job filling the time, but the match wasn't a grade A standard in ECW's hardcore style. Mahoney takes the win after a simple chair shot.
Match 7: John Cena (c) vs Rob Van Dam for the WWE Championship - Incredible main event. The fans were on Van Dam's side the whole time. I think it was about time for Cena to drop the belt because he was champion for a little bit close to a whole year, with only a brief stopping portion thanks to Edge. Van Dam dominates the whole time, if they would have given Cena offense it would have made the crowd go crazy. In the end Van Dam hits the five star frog splash. Paul Heyman comes out to fill in for the referee and counts to three. Rob Van Dam is the new WWE Champion.
