The Most 'Scrambled' Pay Per View of the Year
3 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WWE usually has a certain significance for different Pay Per Views throughout the year. One Night Stand is all about having extreme matches, Night of Champions is about every title in WWE being put on the line, Summerslam is about having high profile matches which the same goes for Wrestlemania, the Royal Rumble is about 30 men fighting for a title shot and Survivor Series is about different elimination matches with oddly mixed teams. Well we finally have a significance for Unforgiven and that would be the first show in which a scramble match was introduced.

Dark Match: Evan Bourne vs. John Morrison - A friend of mine, who went to this event, was able to tell me about this dark match between two of ECW's best high flyers. He told me that the bout went back and forth with Bourne scoring the shooting star press win in the end.

Match 1: Mark Henry vs. The Miz vs. Finlay vs. Matt Hardy vs. Chavo Guerrero in the ECW Championship Scramble match - Mark Henry dominated the ECW ranks in the summer of 2008. From June to September it was really Mark Henry's biggest push throughout his ten years in WWE. This match had the privilege of being the first ever championship scramble match ever presented. This was a new concept to the fans, so this delivered. After a long grueling battle with a total of 5 title changes we see a champion crowned. 20 minutes and 4 seconds later Matt Hardy was entitled the new ECW Champion after nailing The Miz with a twist of fate minutes earlier. I can predict a strong title reign for Hardy. Let's face it, what else is their for him to do on ECW?

Match 2: Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase vs. Cryme Tyme for the World Tag Team Championship - The World Tag Team Championship division really has sucked and still does suck at the moment. Every tag team that Raw acquires is released months or a year later with only saying they got one title shot. Anyway Rhodes and DiBiase stole the titles from Hardcore Holly at Night of Champions and then lost them to Batista & John Cena for a week before regaining them. So Cryme Tyme earns this shot and does make the most of this. This was an average tag title pay per view match at best. After a very competitive contest we can say that Cryme Tyme won't be holding the titles anytime soon when Rhodes & DiBiase retain over them.

Match 3: Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho in a Unsanctioned Match - An unsanctioned match is really, to me, a different term for a hardcore match. Michaels got the best of Jericho at Judgment Day in 2008 while Jericho avenged that at the Great American Bash. These two tore it down once again with weapons involved this time. This match really went on almost a half hour with Michaels constantly beating Jericho with whatever he could find. In the end we see Michaels take the win as he avenges the attack on his wife from Jericho at Summerslam a month earlier.

Match 4: Triple H vs. The Brian Kendrick vs. Jeff Hardy vs. MVP vs. Shelton Benjamin in the WWE Championship Scramble match - This was really the unlikeliest paired scramble match of the evening. It was a shock to see guys like MVP, Shelton Benjamin and The Brian Kendrick compete for the WWE Championship. Of course everyone was on Jeff Hardy's side. Jeff can say he was an interim champion three different times, but it was Triple H in the end keeping his gold once again. After a nice total of seven title changes we see Triple H retain his championship gold.

Match 5: Michelle McCool vs. Maryse for the Divas Championship - This match was a match I could have done without. The match was an alright one at best with a few nice show of moves. McCool is basically defending for the first time, so you know she is retaining for the most part. In the end she shatters Maryse's dreams and retains the title.

Match 6: Rey Mysterio vs. Kane vs. Batista vs. JBL vs. Chris Jericho in the World Heavyweight Championship Scramble match - This was the shortest Scramble match with the most problems behind it. Earlier in the night we see the World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk get attacked by the returning Randy Orton along with Manu, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. So with CM Punk out of the match, who do you think is replacing him? Well my guess would've firstly been Shawn Michaels because he was still probably able to carry a match after beating the hell out of Jericho for a half hour. But in the end it's not, instead it's the man he was beating the hell out of. How does a man that got beat around the arena for a half hour come back and win a title? Well either way this didn't live up to what fans would've liked to see. This turned out to be 17 minutes when it was stated that all Scramble matches are 20 minutes. Added onto that we only see 3 title changes. Kane holds the title after choke slamming JBL, Batista holds it after hitting Kane with a spinebuster and then surprisingly Jericho wins in the end after pinning Kane following Batista's spinebuster. In a strange turn of events we see Jericho as the new World Heavyweight Champion of Raw.
