Vengeance 2006 was a little effort done show for the WWE. 2006 was a good year for WWE pay per views, but this one wasn't the best.
Match 1: Randy Orton vs Kurt Angle - A good opening match. This match culminated these two and their mid 2006 rivalry. With Angle scoring the win at One Night Stand, it was expected for Orton to finally gain a measure of revenge. In the end Orton plants an RKO on Angle to gain the victory. Thus making it a score of 1-1 between him and Angle.
Match 2: Umaga vs Eugene - Lousy wasteful match. Just a plain short crap fest. Umaga dominates Eugene and finally hits a Samoan Spike to get the easy win.
Match 3: Ric Flair vs Mick Foley in a 2 out of 3 Falls match - These two could have done so much more with this match. The first fall lasted a little while with Flair scoring the pinfall win. Then the second fall is just short lived with Foley getting himself disqualified, giving Flair the easy 2 fall win over Foley. Wasted match, that could have been a lot better.
Match 4: Shelton Benjamin (c) vs Carlito vs Johnny Nitro in a Triple Threat match for the Intercontinental Championship - One of the better matches of the night. Nitro got the huge singles push that he needed in this one. After tagging with Joey Mercury for a while, this really gave him he much needed spotlight to shine in. Nobody expected Benjamin to retain in this one, Carlito was off the hook in this one. One of his more stellar performances in the ring. In the end Nitro takes Carlito's pin to steal the gold. He sort of earned it.
Match 5: Rob Van Dam (c) vs Edge for the WWE Championship - You would think that Van Dam vs Edge would have been on before the handicap match, but they book it as if it is just for a mid-card title. Rob Van Dam put on a great performance. They took each other to the limit for the title. A great title main event for this event. Lita tries to give Edge a much needed advantage against the resilient champion Van Dam, but in the end RVD gets his Frog Splash to retain. Nice match.
Match 6: ''Imposter'' Kane vs Kane - Honestly one of the worst matches I have ever seen. The ''Imposter'' Kane (who is actually Festus right now) really was a terrible wrestler. Kane should not have been dominated by someone using his gimmick against him. In the end the ''Imposter'' hits a tombstone piledriver to defeat the real Kane. A lot of boring chants in this one. Horrible match.
Match 7: John Cena vs Sabu in an Extreme Lumberjack match - One of the better matches that Cena has been in. Sabu really did some great weapon spots and carried a good match out of Cena. It went really fast and could have been a little better. In the end Cena FU's Sabu out of the ring through a table, then brings him in for the submission win. This poises Cena for a return bout for the WWE title.
Match 8: D-Generation X vs The Spirit Squad in a 5-on-2 Handicap match
This is the only pay per view main event featuring the Spirit Squad.
They were pretty impressive for first time main eventers. Triple H and Shawn Michaels got dominated and dominated respectively against them. The whole match seemed to favor the newly reunited DX. In the end we do see the newly reformed D-Generation X take the win. They overcome the odds and the crowd goes wild. Better than expected main event.
