A lot can be said about the impact this PPV had by the fact that the WWE never attempted it (under that title, I mean) again! There are too many promos, flashbacks and story lines at the expense of wrestling, and out of the 7 matches only 1 (the last) really feels like part of a bigger event like a PPV instead of something you could see every week, and even that one match has no proper ending! For the record, the matches are:
Drew McIntyre vs. Kofi Kingston for the IC title
Alicia Fox vs. Gail Kim vs. Eve Torres vs. Maryse (this was very
disappointing, these women have so much more potential)
Chris Jericho vs. Evan Bourne (probably the best)
Big Show vs. Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk vs. Jack Swagger for the World
Heavyweight Title (they build up Kane's "revenge" a lot for this, so you know he is going to appear, but it's a pathetic "revenge")
The Miz vs. R-Truth for the US title
The Hart Dynasty vs. The Usos and Tamina
Cena vs. Orton vs. Edge vs. Sheamus for the WWE title (amusing
dueling chants from the crowd ("Cena sucks" - "Let's Go Cena"!))
None of the matches are outright bad, but none are match of the year candidates, either.
