Yeah, I usually don't bother to watch a JUDGMENT DAY PPV broadcast. But for the 10th edition, I took a chance. It's not perfect, but I think WWE still scored big this time around.
There's lots of good stuff to write about, so here goes:
1) JBL v. John Cena
---In Cena's first PPV opener since WRESTLEMANIA XX, this was actually the toughest one to call. Remember WRESTLEMANIA 21, where JBL dominated Cena for most of the match, then lost out of nowhere? Tonight was an encore of that evening. The difference is that JBL implemented a very solid ground-grappling strategy, so I didn't mind the one-sided battle too much. The Omaha crowd was generous with the slow pace, and didn't chant "Boring" until about 15 minutes in. But just like 3 years ago in Hollywood, Cena's sudden victory got a lukewarm reaction --- not a good sign. I kinda got into this opener, but you better be sitting in your most comfortable chair, because this one might test people's patience.
"6.5 out of 10"
2) WWE Tag Team Championships
John Morrison & The Miz (WWE Tag Team champions) v.
CM Punk (Mr. Money-In-The-Bank) & Kane (ECW champion)
---First off, every title bout got in-ring introductions, which I think is a classy move on WWE's part. As for the match, I'm convinced that Morrison and Punk can do just about anything if given the chance.Read more ›
WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz vs. Kane & CM Punk - A short match that was very good mix with all four men putting on good performances with the only draw back being that they weren't given more time.
Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho - Eventhough this match didn't have the emotional story attachment to like their previous one, this match is right up there with their WM19 match in my opinion as they performed such a great wrestling match with each man countering each other's moves & even displaying a couple of rarely seen moves like Jericho's own mix of an indian...oops, I mean "native american" deathlock & a figure four and HBK doing an armbar while hanging over the top to yank the arm down. One heavily athletic contest.
Womens Champion Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix vs. Melina - This match was too short (around 5 mins.) to really turn into anything special but it was a nice match for what it was. The real moment to check out is the double backbreaker on Mickie & Melina by Beth...that was heavily impressive.

John Cena V. JBL
Interesting placement on this card. It didn't seem like this match should be first and it was a little weird seeing Cena in the opener. Good match here with JBL destroying Cena for the whole match so whatever psychology they had made they lost when cena hitting the FU out of nowhere for the win. **1/2 Seems like their WrestleMania 21 match.
WWE Tag Team Championship:
John Morrison & The Miz (Champions) V. CM Punk & Kane
Good match here too. Good wrestling but Punk & Morrison which is weird because their single matches together in 2007 sucked. Anywhere, Morrison and Miz retain in a good match but nothing realy noteworthly here. **3/4. The commentary by Mike Adamle was just horrible. Like "Miz & Morrison won the titles in November and had hold them for 5 months"...WHAT?? Ok, the PPV was hold in May which is the fifth month of the year. But they won them in November, so they actually hold them for seven months at this point. Good adding there Mike. Another awesome line was: "CM Punk with the right hand just kicked Morrison in the head"...WOW...I'm not going to even touch that one.
Shawn Michaels V. Chris Jericho
This was a really good match, but was also disappointing. This match just seemed to be missing something. realy good match with god wreslting and storyline but again was missing something to push it over the top. Michaels wins. ***1/2
Triple Threat Match for thr WWE Women's Championship:
Mickie James (Champion) V. Beth Phoenix V. Melina
Really good womens match here. Good stroy to it and some cool spots. Mickie retains. ***
Vacant World Heavyweight Championship:
Undertaker V. Edge
Very, very good.Read more ›
