ECW World Championship
Jack Swagger (C) vs. Matt Hardy
Very good opening contest. Hardy scored with some hard right fists to Swagger early going in the match. The match went at a good pace with Swagger targeting the shoulder of Hardy every second he got. A good match and a strong way to open up the show. 4/5
Beth Phoenix (C) w/ Santino Marella vs. Melina
I felt this was a very good women's title match. During the match Beth seemed dominant and showing a great deal of strength. Even hitting Melina with her own boot. A little bit of a back and forth contest with a sudden end but doesn't equal to their "I Quit" Match last year at ONS. Listen for the "SANTINO" chants early in the match. 3/5
World Heavyweight Championship
John Cena (C) vs. JBL w/ Shawn Michaels
If you remember their Wrestlemania 21 match and their single matches back in '08, then you can recall them not being so good. But this time around Cena and JBL tried to have a "wrestling" match and it played out pretty well. The suspense factor was there and Shawn Michaels being at ringside and getting involved in the match certainly did more for the match then anything else. By far Cena's and JBL's best "wrestling" match together. 3.5/5

ROYAL RUMBLE 2009
1.[ECW TITLE] JACK SWAGGER VS MATT HARDY-we start out with a really good opener that was for the now gone ECW title. Swagger of course wanted to make this a mat based contest working on Matt's arm. Hardy however tried turning this into more of a fight with more high impact blows and fists. Matt controlled most of the first half of the match but his arm was too worked over in the process. Swagger would retain the tile and defeat Hardy again.
2.[WOMEN'S TITLE] BETH PHOENIX VS MELINA-this match right straight up upset me and it still bothers me. I am a big fan of Beth. I think Beth along with Natie is the best female wrestlers in the WWE. This match showed off what both are really good at, with Beth showing off her strength. Melina showed off her agility but the best part was Beth beating her with her own foot. Still Beth ended up getting reversed and pinned loosing her title and many months long streak.
3.[WORLD TITLE] JOHN CENA VS JBL-now I know a lot of people were not expecting much out of this match. But to be honest this was a good match between the two with solid action that went back and forth. Of The Shawn Michaels storyline going into this was great and HBK getting involved added a lot to the match. After a super kick or two from Shawn, Cena was able to defeat JBL once again.
4.[WWE TITLE] JEFF HARDY VS EDGE-now I have to say from there tag team days all the way to now these two have good matches. This like the others was a well done match with a good pace and some good high spots due to Vickie making it a no DQ match. Also with Chavo on the outside to help Edge added to the atmosphere. Still the story here was the ending that was just wonderful Matt Hardy turning on his brother and costing him his title.Read more ›
Womens Champion Beth Phoenix vs. Melina - It just seemed like they weren't clicking here as you openily saw some botched moves, off timing, along with the crowd at one point more focused on cheering Santino at ringside than the match itself. One memorable moment though was when Beth stretched Melina's leg to the point where she had Melina kicking herself in the head with her own foot. In the end, this was their weakest match together as they were just off here but what's ironic is that their worst day is still a more watchable & better performance than you would get from some of the other divas on their best day.
World Champion John Cena vs. J.B.L. - If anyone remembers their matches from WrestleMania 21 along with Judgment Day & One Night Stand from 2008, you know not to expect much from these two unless it's a hardcore type match like Judgment Day '05 & Great American Bash 2008. But I'll give it credit as these two put on their best "wrestling" match here as it wasn't one sided here & both men trading offense. The wild card with Shawn Michaels at ringside helped this match more than hurt it as this was again, their best "wrestling" match that we should have gotten during their previous 3 attempts at a normal match.
No Disqualification Match: WWE Champion Jeff Hardy vs. Edge - Chavo Guerrero was in Edge's corner for this match & Vickie Guerrero made it a No DQ match.Read more ›
