As the title says, in my opinion, this was the best PPV of the year for WWE. Besides Wrestlemania.
This PPV was a totally new concept and the first ever of it's kind. There has been a lot of negative feedback about WWE changing some PPV names and giving the PPV's stipulations. But this PPV impressed me.
TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs. A gauranteed extreme night. With WWE going PG, I was unsure whether this PPV would flop. Because tables, ladders and chairs is extreme and if they tamed it up for the PG era, then the PPV would be a total fail. But nope, it was impressive.
The matches are:
Shelton Benjamin Vs Christian (c) - ECW Championship Match - Ladder Match
This match was totally extreme and an amazing way to open the PPV. So many amazing spots including Christian diving crossbody across Shelton which totally smashed the ladder in two. Christian got busted open early on and the match was in a way stopped momentarily. But great match, great start to the event. This match was probably best of the night.
Drew McIntyre Vs John Morrison (c) - Intercontinental Title Match
This match was okay, nothing special about it, but it was watchable and had some nice spots. Good match for the PPV.
Michelle McCool (c) Vs Mickie James - Women's Championship Match
Just your average women's match. Nothing special, not very interesting. A 7 minute filler for the PPV.
Sheamus Vs John Cena (c) - WWE Championship Match - Tables Match
The most shocking match of the night and potentially the biggest upset in WWE history. A pretty good match with a shocking outcome. The outcome was very sloppy and at first looked like a botch and as though it wasn't suppose to have ended in that way. We'll never know if it was a botch or not, but overall, it was a good match and amazing for Sheamus who got an almighty push whether it was planned or not.
The Undertaker Vs Batista - World Heavyweight Championship Match - Chair Match
This match didn't excite me much on that card. Chair match seems kinda boring, since head shots got banned. The match wasn't a totaly flop and it had a little excitement with Batista winning after a cheap shot and then Teddy Long (Smackdown General Manager) came out and ordered the match to restart, resulting in Undertaker retaining the title. A nice way to add a little excitement and a little emotion from the crowd. Match wasn't great.
Randy Orton Vs Kofi Kingston
A decent match. Their fued had been pretty entertaining and Kofi was doing an awesome job. Predictable outcome, but good match.
DX Vs Chris Jericho and The Big Show
A great main event. Wrestling wise it was good. Entertainment wise it was very fun. Back and fourth action. Outside ring action. We saw all 3 objects being used which was great. The ending was awesome too. It's a must see match for any DX fan. Great ending to one of the last DX matches we will ever see.
Overall, it is a great PPV and a great DVD. I would recommend this to ANY WWE fan because in my opinion this was the best PPV of 2009. It had some great matches and generally the whole night was really extreme. It's a shame Jeff parted ways beforehand because this PPV event was made for guys like Jeff Hardy.
