The PPV was a good one. It was by no means spectacular, but it was good- a solid, entertaining PPV. It wasn't worth the money, but the last PPV that was was WM-X7. The only reason I continue to order them is because I'm a wrestling junkie who needs his fix. Still, it was good (not great) and I liked it.
Very good opener. It was cool and action packed, and had its high spots. Towards the beginning it was a little slow, but it really picked up- Benoit and Guerrero can't put on a bad match. The various table spots were good- I'm glad they went back to the whole "both partners must go through" like when the match originally debuted. The only flaw was that the Dudleyz won. I, like many others, was confused by this. Wasn't Benoit scheduled to feud with Stone Cold all summer? Then why is he jobbing to a tag team wrestler and a jobber? Still a good match- hey, at least the ending was unpredictable.
Eh. It wasn't bad, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't amazing. I'm sorry to say this, but I just don't think the Cruiserweight division will get over with Noble as the champ. His technical style is too... Plain. I say get the focus on Mysterio to save the division. Don't get me wrong- Noble is a great technician, and I admire and like that, alot, but it won't get the division over. Still, the match was decent with some cool reversals and spots, but nothing amazing.
Yawn. Regal sucks- he can't put on an exciting match with anyone. I would much rather have seen a women's match than this garbage. Jeff is entertaining enough to save this match from being a bathroom break, but Regal is just boring in the ring- BORING.
Another good match where the wrong person went over. You gotta feel for Jericho- he hasn't won a PPV match since before WrestleMania. Personally I blame Triple H. Regardless, the match was very good, the best the two have put on yet, and was a great blow off. Hopefully Jericho won't lose to Edge at SummerSlam- he needs to bounce back badly.
I still hate Brock. It was a decent match, but regardless, I still hate Brock. I could go on for hours about how he doesn't deserve to go to SummerSlam, but what the hell, it makes no difference. The match was much better than their affair at KOTR, thank god, and was pretty entertaining. It was the only match on the card that was really unpredictable, and that made it exciting, but I still find Brock relativley unexciting in the ring. RVD still managed to drag him to a decent match- I wish he'd hit the VanTerminator at the end though. The finish was a little weak, but I don't blame them- neither man could really afford to lose. The verdict: decent match, but Brock still sucks.
No CO, No DQ
This match basically sucked, but it had two highspots. The Scissors Kick through the table was sweet and the "Houston" (Harlem) Hangover was as well. All that really matters is that the right man went over- thank the lord! If Big Show had won this match, I might have killed myself. All hail the 5 time WCW champion!
Was this a waste of PPV time, or what? If you didn't know Triple H was going to RAW, you are too stupid to be watching wrestling, and that's saying something. They just wasted half an hour of PPV time that could have been more time for existing matches or more matches. Screw Triple H. I hate him now. Using backstage influence to waste OUR money? Screw him.
Tag Team Titles
Good enough match for what it was. Christian, Lance, and Edge carried Hogan to a decent match, although it wasn't anything special. The right team went over, but this was the most predictable match on the card, which took away from it slightly. Decent.
WWE Undisputed Title
Very enjoyable, actually! In fact, I think it was the best match on the card. Very cool, slick, and well done. For a match with Taker in it, it was amazingly fast paced. Angle was at his best, and made it look good. Rock had a little ring rust, but not much, and it was a very good, creative, entertaining match. All of the finishers were awesome, and it really gave the impression that a fall could occur at any time. Good suspense- the match was just well done. We all knew Rock would win, but it was still a great match.
I'd say, on a relative scale, thumbs up to the overall show.
