Having 9 championship matches on a PPV was overkill, but not in WWE's eyes obviously. Can you believe they were thinking of adding ECW Tag Team belts at one point? Matches ranged from positively awesome to abysmal.
Results from the show: Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch downed The Hardyz to retain the WWE tag team belts in a heated match. MVP downed Ric Flair to keep the US title in a decent match. Johnny Nitro beat CM Punk to win the vacant ECW World Championship in a passable match. Edge defeated Batista in a very good match to retain the WWE Championship. Candice Michelle pinned Melina in a passable match to win the Women's title. Santino Marella beat Umaga by DQ in a terrible match, fans hated Marella even though he was supposed to be the face. Duece and Domino defeated the ancient team of Sgt Slaughter and Jimmy Snuka in a poor match (Snuka looked awful). Chavo Guerrero downed Jimmy Wang Yang in a passable contest. John Cena defeated King Booker, Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley and Mick Foley in a thrilling match when he nailed Foley with an FU.
Nitro replaced Chris Benoit for his match with CM Punk, fans chanted 'We want Benoit' during the match. It's a request WWE could not fill because Benoit killed his wife, his son and himself during the weekend prior to the event.
