Another Bog Standard PPV
29 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This PPV gave me mixed emotions.

On the bad side however was ANOTHER Hardy vs Hardy match. They had a fantastic extreme rules match at Wrestlemania XXV which should have ended the feud. This "I quit" match was just plain weak. effectively a wrestling match with barely any use of anything extreme and a weak ending. A poor way to end the feud.

The other down point was yet another time filler match between Kane and CM Punk. Weak story, if any, and a weak match.

However there was yet another fantastic display (age considering) for Ricky the Dragon Steamboat in his match against Jericho (who was also very good) The 3 Championship matches were actually highly entertaining. ECW match was good apart from Jack Swagger making a ring post incident look a bit shoddy by chickening out a touch. The WWE championship was actually entertaining with a good return for Batista and the ending of the World Heavyweight championship match was a very good end to a quality match. The Santina vs Beth match/incident was a good laugh too.

All in all it was clear that not enough effort went into the whole card but some solid matches made for an overall bog standard WWE PPV.
