Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho & Big Show vs M.V.P. & Mark Henry. As I have mentioned before, I am not really big on the whole "Jeri-Show" tag team while I can care less about the M.V.P./Henry duo. Although, I am happy to say that this was a good opener that the crowd actually got into with the action getting better when Jericho took on M.V.P. while the action slowed when Show was working with Henry.
United States Champion Kofi Kingston vs The Miz. This was one of those matches that was better than what it looked on paper as the action was getting better as time went on with both men doing counter after counter to the point that the crowd made no noise at the start but slowly got into the action. Definitely the "sleeper" match of the night & both men's best match up to this point.
Submissions Count Anywhere: D-Generation X vs Legacy. Before the match, there was some comedy as the crowd quickly cheered but then turned in the "You Screwed Bret" chants towards Shawn Michaels (they are in Montreal) with Triple H pulling off the quick one-liner that had everyone laughing. Anyways, this was a brawl that went all over the building with moments of both teams using innovative submission attempts like the camel clutch & boston crab on a folded chair by DX, Cody doing the Gory Guerrero special, the double figure four in the aisle way before Legacy was able to take out Triple H & dominate HBK in the ring including the finishing move of the figure four around the ringpost combined with the million dollar dream. This was my favorite match of the night as Legacy got the biggest win in their young careers while both teams still left the match strong.
Singapore Cane Match: Kane vs The Great Khali. Honestly, I just fast-forward this match since these two just don't work well together & who ever made this feud needs to get shot.
ECW Champion Christian vs William Regal. Now, this was the match that we should have gotten at SummerSlam as this was a great mat-based wrestling match with Regal actually being able to control the action at times including using some of his stiff offense including one knee to the face to Christian that it had everyone in the arena turn their heads. We all know the type of performance Christian can deliver & just like the previous title match, the crowd got into the action as time went on as this was again, another great match.
I-Quit Match: WWE Champion Randy Orton vs John Cena. If you can get pass the whole predictable finish (I honestly saw it coming from a mile away) including the quick STF finish, this match told a good story of how Orton was just punishing Cena throughout the match to the point where his offense was calculating just to make Cena suffer with one moment to point out being Cena being handcuffed to the ringpost, only to be beaten with a singapore cane. Again, a good story told but this was no where near their SummerSlam clash from the month prior.
Submission Match: World Champion CM Punk vs The Undertaker. This was a real disappointment as this match ended just when it was starting to pick up and become really good. Both men worked well together in the short time that they had but this was all about setting up another "Screwjob" in Montreal as Taker won the match originally but then had the decision reverse that lead to Theodore Long & the referee pulling off something that we have seen before. A bad way to end the night as I actually enjoyed their Hell In A Cell match a month later more than this.
Overall, this event had three matches worth checking out in DX/Legacy, Kofi/Miz & Christian/Regal while the rest was either watchable or just bad so hopefully this was the first & only time WWE will use this concept because it really did hurt the event more than helped.
Randy Orton vs John Cena was a pretty good match. I found it not to be their best encounter as they have had a million matches against each other. I didn't like the stipulation 'I Quit' but they both put on a great match.
DX vs Legacy I was never a fan of Legacy. I think Ted Dibase the son of the million dollar man sucked as a wrestler. Cody Rodes is very talented. In his first match against Orton he showed he had it. I loved this match because Legacy won. I am a big DX fan but Legacy needed the push and win. I was never a fan of The DX Legacy feud though.
Jerishow vs MVP and Henry was great. I love Show and Jericho as a team. They were 2 big free agent signings in 1999 that helped turn the tide on WCW for good when they left. They are a big part of why WWE won The Monday Night Wars. Show came in when they needed him and Jericho when the deck was being stacked against WCW. Anyways back to the match It was a great match to start the show.
Kofi vs Miz great match Kofi one of the most underrated wrestlers. I enjoyed this match a lot. I think Miz should never have been a world champion but is a great ic or us champ.
Christian vs William Regal was a great match. Christian finally returned to WWE from TNA and they put him against one of the greatest wrestlers never to win the WWE World title Regal. Give me a break Miz or Regal as champ? Regal more deserving and light years more talented.
Overall I give 3 stars because the screwjob on Taker ruined the show for me it was stupid. Orton and Cena was solid along with some entertaining mid card matches it helped this show stay afloat. I recommend for rental. I wouldn't reccomend to buy unless you are a collector and can get it cheap. Cheers!
