Disappointing, that's the thought that comes into my head when I think about Judgment Day.
Did anybody need to see (again) Ric Flair vs Carlito? The match was lame and all Flair did was chops, and he won! A waste of Carlito, he should have been in there with someone who is athletic like Kenny, but not Flair. The US title match in which MVP defeated Chris Benoit in 2 straight falls, was slow, granted these two have had great matches at Wreslemania 23 and Backlash, but I thought the whole idea of 2 out of 3 falls matches was to have the 2 wrestlers to have 1 fall a piece so the last fall becomes the most interesting, the crowd was dead for this match. The Bobby Lashley vs The McMahon's and Umaga match was too short and when McMahon declared that Lashley needed to pin him the for the ECW title, I was miffed and so were the fans.
The CM Punk and Elijah Burke match for me just didn't cut the mustard. Granted these two have talent, but the match seemed slow at times, and Batista in his match got booed whilst some of the fans cheered Edge! A complete shambles! The only match I enjoyed was The Hardy Boyz vs Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. It was very good and even though Murdoch appears to have lost weight, he still looks about 50. Murdoch and Cade are the 3rd best tag team in WWE behind the Hardyz and Paul London and Brian Kendrick.
Results from the show: Ric Flair defeated Carlito via figure four leg lock in a lame match. Bobby Lashley defeated The McMahon's and Umaga when he pinned Shane in a passable match. CM Punk downed Elijah Burke in a disappointing match. MVP downed Chris Benoit in two straight falls to win the US title. The Hardyz defeated Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch in the best match of the night. Randy Orton defeated Shawn Michaels via stoppage. Edge beat Batista with a cheap roll up in a passable match. John Cena defeated the Great Khali in a average match via the STFU.
