Christian Vs. Jack Swagger - This was a solid back and forth match. Christian and Swagger makes a good pair in the ring and if Swagger was trying to prove something here that he can perform on a big stage well, he certainly did that. Lots of near falls with the crowd getting into it. Solid opening contest and a great match to start the show. 4/5
This segment of the show I recommend checking out. After the opening match, Christian runs into Edge backstage. Edge and Christian has words with each other which may lead to something in the future between them.
Chris Jericho Vs. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat - Another great back and forth match. This is the match we should've got at WrestleMania. Yes, Steamboat is up there in age so some of his moves were off but he performed a solid wrestling match with Chris Jericho. Again, the crowd was into it and they were behind Steamboat all the way. This match has some nice counters but in the end it was Chris Jericho with his Walls Of Jericho making Steamboat tap out. 3.5/5
C.M. Punk Vs. Kane - This wasn't a bad match either. Kane and C.M. Punk previously fought on Raw but this match was much better. A couple minutes into the match Kane starts to target the mid-section of C.M. Punk. Kane and Punk put on a good effort and they delivered a well paced match. After a series of consecutive kicks and punches from Punk, Kane counters with a big chokeslam on Punk for the win. Without question, Kane derseved this win. 3.5/5
"I Quit" Match
Matt Hardy Vs. Jeff Hardy - This was a good match. Possibably better then their match from WrestleMania because the psychology in this match was better played out. Not as brutal and violent as previous "I Quit" Matches but this was still a good match.Read more ›
Ricky Steamboat vs Chris Jericho: In another great back and forth match with many near falls Jericho won with the Walls of Jericho. But I hope there's another rematch where Steamboat actually wins. A 2 out of 3 Fall match would be great for Judgement Day. I'd also like to see Steamboat vs HBK happen at least once as well.
C.M Punk vs Kane: I don't remember much about this one, just that Kane won with a Choke Slam.
Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy in a "I Quit Match": They of course beat the crap out of each other but neither would say Quit. That is until Jeff beat up Matt enough where he couldn't defend himself, then he tired him to a table. Matt apologized and said I Quit before Jeff could Swanton him off a ladder. Jeff than leap frog leg dropped Matt through the table anyway.
Legacy vs Shane McMahon, Batista and HHH (WWE Title): I just remember that HHH got RKO'd, kicked out and then got kicked in the head by Orton but didn't kick out after that and that Orton is the new champ :). HHH then got taken away on a stretcher but a few fans just sang that goodbye song instead of booing Orton lol. But don't worry, HHH will be back probably by Vengeance, if not tonight on Raw. He'll be 14 to 30 time champ before you know it, so don't worry HHH fans.
Edge vs Cena in a Last Man Standing match: There were many times when both men were nearly counted out.Read more ›
1. ECW Championship
Jack Swagger (c) vs. Christian
Very good opener. These two have great chemistry together and they put on one heck of an opening bout. Lots of near falls and the crowd got into it. It was also nice to see Christian get the title, and he put the belt over big by having a nice victory celebration afterwards as if he accomplished something historic. Good stuff. ***1/4
2. Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Steamboat
Another great match. This was Steamboat's best performance of the three matches he's had since returning to the ring, but the crowd was not as into him as they were at the previous two venues (both in Houston). That's not to say they didn't care, but it felt more like being nice than really being into him. Steamboat was also in better physical condition this time around. The two had a very well paced, smooth match, with no missed moves that I can recall. Lots of great near falls at the end before Jericho got the win clean with the Walls. I hope this isn't Steamboat's last match because he's still awesome. ***1/2
3. Kane vs. CM Punk
They worked hard but these two don't mesh well and the match was not smooth at all. It was far from being horrible but it was not what I would call a good match.Read more ›
