DVD Verdict: Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch vs. The Hardy Boyz for the World Tag Team Titles: This was an okay match but was no were near there last two matches together. For me I had already seen these two teams go at it so it was not watching anything new. Also just something was missing from this match. Nice to see Murdoch and Cade keep there titles. Winners and still World Tag Team Champs Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch.
Chavo Guerrero vs. Jimmy Wang Yang for the cruiserweight title: This was a decent match. I liked the way they did a tribute before the match for Eddie. This was another match that if it was the given enough time would be able to develop. Still I would say this was above the first match of the night. Just some high flying action and a couple of near falls. Winner and still crusierwieght champ Chavo Guerrero.
Jonny Nitro vs. CMP for the ECW Title: This was supposed to be Chris Beniot vs. CMP which was a dream match but Beniot could not be there cause of family issues so Nitro took his place. At first I was a little disappointed with this but the match acculaty started to go well. This involved some solid wrestling. Very good work by both men. Winner and new ECW Champ Jonny Nitro.
Santino Marreli vs. Umaga for the ITC Title: This was an absolute terrible match First off Santino needs to get better in the ring. Secondly what is the point of letting him hold the ITC Title if he is going to job to everyone every single time. I knew this was going to be a squash from the start but what made it worse was it ended in a DQ because Umaga did not break a 5 count. Skip this match. Winner and still ITC Champ Santino Marreli.
MVP vs. Rick Flair for the US title: This was another OK match. A couple of years ago I would have been excited for this match but it just seems that flair has lost a little bit of his step. This was just another solid wrestling amtch with a lot of old school wrestling by both MVP and Flair. Again more time could have done this match good because it was rushed. Winner and still US Champ MVP.
Duece and Domino vs. Sgt. Slaughter and Jimmy The Super Fly Snuka for the WWE Tag Team Titles: I was kind of looking forward to this match but it turned out to be a disaster. First off once we found out who the opponents were we knew that to 60 year olds were not winnig the match. Second the match was only 6 minutes long and it was just slow and boring. Not much to say but that. Winners and still WWE Tag Team champs Duece and Domino.
Edge of Batista for the World Heavywieght Title: Finally we get something good. I did not know if this was going to succeed but it did to a certain point. The beginng was contolled by Edge with just some solid wrestling which we have seen before but than they stepped it up. There cam all the near falls. Edge got DQ and long came out and restarted the match and I was almost possative Edge was going to lose the title. They fought back in the ring it broke to the outside and Batista hit a sick Batistia hit a sick Batistia bomb on the floor but ended getiing counted out because he rolled Edge in the ring first. My match of the night and not a bad one. Winner and Still WHC Edge.
Melina vs. Candice Michelle for the WWE Women's Title: Well here is yet another bad match. Now I was not expecting this to be good and it wasn't so I was not to surprised. Not much to say but good for Canidce to finally win the title but after that you can skip this one. Winner and new WWE Womens champ Candice Michelle.
John Cena vs. Mick Foley vs. Randy Orton vs. King Booker vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title: This I was expecting to save the show but it didn't. Don't get me wrong this was not a bad match but it was to rushed and did not live up to the hype I had for it. There were some nice spots including some nice chair shots and a nice F-U through the table. Again at only 10 minutes long it was rushed and they could at least have added an extra 15 minutes considering the PPV is not supposed to end till 11 O' clock. Once again Cena wins and it almost seems like its not worth watching anymore cause we already know who is going to win the match which sucks. Winner and still WWE champ John Cena.
