4.0 out of 5 stars FOR FOOTY FANS, ULTIMATE VALUE FOR MONEY!, 22 Dec 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: FIFA 11 (PS3) (Video Game)
Since Fifa 2005 the Fifa series has arguably been the premier soccer game for fans worldwide. It has for a decade always outsold its adversary, Pro Evolution, but it hasn't always in the critics eyes had the best gameplay. Fast forward to Fifa 11 and its safe to say this is the very best football game of all time, somehow surpassing the previous entry to the series.

Gameplay
The game is certainly the most challenging Football Game of all time, never have i needed to focus for the full 90minutes, as a second of complacency will be punished by the ruthless A.I. The 360 degree dribbling returns and has improved from the last game, giving you ultimate control of talented players on the ball such as Messi, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo. What has been added to the gameplay is "pro passing" which unlike previous games, is less assisted and requires the player to be more accurate in direction and accuracy, and adds a layer of challenge to the game. Initially it is very annoying but as you get used to it you realise it is a welcoming addition to the gameplay. The goalkeepers have vastly improved, gone are the days of them looking to the heavens as a lobbed shot floats over them as in Fifa 10, now i have only scored 3 lobs in over 400 matches. The better the keeper, the better his positioning, awareness and reactivity, all in all it adds to the challenge. Arguably the best addition to the game is player personality traits. For example, notable players like Ronaldo and Messi have their trademark running style. Players of note are attributed traits, for example players like Xavi are giving the trait of playmaker, so they are good in creating attacking opportunities, or players like Dzeko are tremendous at headers, and are given the trait power headers. It adds individuality to traditionally team game and allows players to know their players strengths and from there figure out the best way to utilise them in game. The shooting mechanics are as fantastic as ever, and super strikes are rare yet satisfying when they go in. All skills imaginable are added to the game, and while it requires training to be able to execute them in-game, it adds flair to an already tremendous package. Overall the Gameplay is near perfect-9.5/10

Game Modes
Manager Mode returns and is improved from the previous Game. Be a Pro mode and Manager mode have been submerged into Career mode, so you can pick to be either player, manager or player-manager. Manager mode has improved in that transfer are rather life like, as you have to negotiate with the club then the player for personal terms, it makes transfers more enjoyable and reminds me of Football Manager. The biggest addition is the ability to play as the goalkeeper, and it is a very unique experience as it requires 100% focus, especially during times when action is coming your way, infact it can test your patience at times, but nonetheless it is a noteworthy addition and adds an extra dimension in terms of ways to experience and enjoy the game. Modes such as tournement mode returns and so does fifa lounge mode, neither with any notable improvements. There is so much depth in the game, if your a football fan this will no doubt do you all the way till the next fifa game in august-9/10

Online Modes
This is where the game truly excels. Ultimate team mode is a tremendous card game take on the manager mode, and is a highly enjoyable and unique experience, and is probably the best and most satisfying mode in the whole game. The tradition ranked and player matches return, and the match lobby has improved in that there is a time-limit to pick your team line up. The actual action runs equally as smoothly as single player and i have experienced minimal lag. It is probably one of the most challenging games online, even though like all games certain gameplay elementa can be exploited. In fifa 09 it was speed, in fifa 10 it was strength and lobbed goals and now in this game it is 1-2s and lobbed passes. Its fustrating to see so many players resorting to it. Online teams is probably the best online only mode as you create your own team and invite players to join, and taking on other teams online for tournements and rankings. Its satisfying as you and your team gain trust and chemistry, learning each others strength and weaknesses and working as a unit, just like real football. There are also online leagues you can create, the critically acclaimed Fifa Interactive World Cup in which the worlds best play to qualify for the ultimate fifa challenge in spain i believe(for a cash prize aswel). All in all it is virtually perfect, so much to do and adds unbelievable depth to an already robust game-10/10

Graphics
Tremendous, notable player models such as Rooney, Kaka and Oezil look almost life like, players are built identically to their real life counterparts, rooney is rather large, Drogba muscular while people like Di Maria are slender. The Stadiums look fantastic, especially Wembley, Old Trafford and the Nou Camp, the fans look very good. All in all while not the greatest in terms of graphics, it is certainly amongst the best in sports games.

Negatives
Some gameplay elements like lobbed passes get exploited online, the manager mode, while good, is still yet it reach that fantastic level. Theres not many negatives to the game

Overall
Is it the perfect game? Hell no, but it is as good as a gaming package as you will get this year. If your a football fan all your favourite teams are here, all licensed, so many modes, and if you have online, it will be hard to put down this game

Final Verdict-9/10


WWE Summerslam 2009 (Steelbook) [DVD]
WWE Summerslam 2009 (Steelbook) [DVD]
Dvd ~ John Cena

4.0 out of 5 stars THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER & ONE OF THE BEST EVER!, 15 Dec 2010
THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER & ONE OF THE BEST EVER!
This was truly an excellent event, with a real bigtime feel, second only to Wrestlemania. The stage was excellent, the choice of venue was excellent( staples centre in la, home of WM21) and the marquee matches had a great build, none more better than the main event. Some real career performances tonight, and one of the most unpredictable WWE championship matches of all time!

TLC Match for the World Heavyweight Championship
Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk- Kudos for WWE for allowing these two to go last. What a build this match had. Jeff winning the Title against Edge at Extreme Rules, only for Punk to cash in the money in the bank. Jeff regaining at night of champions, and the fantastic heel turn of Punk(my personal favourite heel turn of them all) in which he smashed a microphone over Jeffs head. These two were made for each- Jeff has a history of being a drug addict and living a high risk lifestyle, while CM Punk promotes the straight edge mantra, and degrading Jeff for this. The stage was set, TLC was a great choice of stipulation to end this rivalry, and these two put on a career performance(especially CM Punk) certifying themselves as main event superstars and putting this rivalry up there with the best in 2009. The match started off at a high pace, then after a couple of minutes the spots came, and boy were they great! But what i loved about this is how it wasnt one big spot after another, they were brutal yet moderate spots that didnt feel staged at all. What hurts the rating of this match is the no sell of the spots, or the work on the body parts. It really at times annoyed me and made me reluctantly drop the rating. There were numerous great moments, none better than the unforgettable swanton bomb by Jeff onto Punk on the announcers table off the biggest ladder ive ever seen! Great image. The ending sequence was unpredictable, and i love how Jeff tried to do a Foley by going against medical care and trying to win the match. Great match, would of been a 9.5 but the selling hurts it. Nonetheless this is one of the best matchees of either mans career-9/10

WWE Championship Match
Randy Orton vs. John Cena- WOW, this was unpredictable and has recieved mixed reviews. If you watched this live you have no clue what the hell was going to happen, as the match was continuously restarted. The crowd was HOT, the match was borderline great, Orton and Cena both playing off their characters. Orton as usual slowed the match down, but it didnt hurt my entertainment. This match left everyone in complete shock and confusion afterwards, and i love that kind of unpredictablity. Im giving this higher than i should because the stops and what not kept me on the edge of my seat, so this match is more fun the first time than watching it again. I hope WWE dont do this again as it will become annoying but for one night, the overbooking worked wonders for this match, and the actually action was very good from two of the biggest stars in WWE-7.5/10

ECW Championship Match
Christian vs. William Regal- LOL! This is funny, im giving this a much higher rating than it should because it was so funny how Regal had to be held back before the match, only to lose in just 8seconds! Its like all the big events in WWE has to have one of those quick matches, but why couldnt it be the Khali/Kane match instead of this? This could of been an instant classic( pardon the pun) yet it ended up being a squash-2/10

D-Generation X vs. The Legacy- Best tag team match of the year in WWE! No doubt. The DX entrance was one of the best ive seen, but the match itself was great. Great storytelling, Legacy were so good in their role, and while they lost the battle, they ended up looking on the same level as DX, as they pushed DX to the limit. This was HBKs first match since his epic with the Undertaker and he looked like he hadnt lost a beat. The last 5minutes was fantastic unpredictable stuff that would draw anyone into the match. Great action and story telling, and Legacy ended up looking stronger than when they entered-8.5/10

The Great Khali vs. Kane-TRASH. This my friends was unbelievably boring. I, and only i, stood by their wrestlemania 23 match, saying it wasnt as bad as people said, but this was BAD, REAL BAD, it put me to sleep almost. Watching it again it wasnt dud but it was still ****, and i would personally PAY for these two to never wrestle again. Atleast they tried at WM, here they seemed too sloppy and unbothered. I am being awfully generous with the rating, soley because i have seen so much more trash thats worse than this, but these two didnt help the event in any way-4/10

Unified Tag Team Championship Match
Cryme Tyme vs. Chris Jericho & Big Show- One of the two quality tag team matches of the night. Cryme Tyme has really improved when you watch back on them in 2006, Jericho was great as hes always been in his illustrious career, while the Big show was, well the Big show lol. JTG impressed me the most, and Shad was really close aswel, putting on a performance that put their careers back on the map. They lost here and it seems they will never win the Tag belts, but all 4 men ( even Big show) can be proud of their efforts here. Shads physcological and transitional work was fantastic, from using his strengths to his advantage against Jericho, while trying to combat Show with speed. The punch in the end was strong, just like the match-7.5/10

Jack Swagger vs. MVP- The pre match promo from these two was superb, they made me pay interest to a match i had no real feel for. But just like the majority of young superstars in the WWE, they were unable to tell the story in the ring. They need to watch a HBK or Bret hart match. A match that should of been a brawl ended up being a very good wreslting match that didnt acomplish the goal of telling the hatred these two men had. The match itself was good, could of been better, but i ended up being disapointed after being pumped up by the promo-7/10

Intercontinental Championship Match
Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler- EXCELLENT OPENER! Rey has been phenomonal in 2009, putting on great matches with Jericho, Morrison and now Ziggler. Another of the many career performances in this match, as Ziggler introduced himself to the world with a fantastic performance with great body work, while Rey pulled off spots that not too many in the world can do without being tedious. What seperates him from other high flyers is that he knows exactly when to hit the spots, and not make it repetitive, and telling a story in the progress. Its good Ziggler didnt win, as he wasnt completely ready, and the fans loved this match. This year has really re-established the intercontinental championship which many thought would be buried when rey beat jbl at WM25-8.5/10

This event was one of the top 3 WWE events this year along with No way out and Backlash. This was a truly epic Summerslam that felt pretty close to a WM. The event was really the coming party for many new superstars- MVP, Swagger, Cryme Tyme, Ziggler, Legacy and CM Punk. The event had MOTY candidates, unforgettable moments and matches, and one of the most unpredictable matches ive ever seen. Only extra is a divas battle royal, which i havent seen. If it was for two matches, this would of been a 5star event. For what it was it was THE BIGGEST PARTY OF THE SUMMER! GET THIS ASAP

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best ppvs in history!!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: WWE Royal Rumble 2005 [DVD] (DVD)
Royal Rumble Match-one of the more entertaining rumbles in recent history. started off with two of the best wrestlers ever in benoit and guerrero who put on a great technical showcase.there were many great moments such as when the raw superstars and the smackdown superstars teamed against each other, and when hassan came in the whole action in the ring stopped and everyone attacked him. the last two superstars were two of the dastest rising superstars at the time cena and batista, in which their battle lead to the match being restarted!great match, my favourite rumble ever-9/10

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Triple H vs. Randy Orton-GREAT MATCH! seriously if it wasnt for the confusing last 5 or so minutes it would of been match of the year!! seriously. One of the few highlights of ortons face turn and him and triple h put on a classic match up.Another great ppv match of triple h(when does he ever disappoint)and one of ortons best matches. this was wonderfully paced and reat physcology-8.5/10

Triple Threat Match For The WWE Championship
JBL vs. Big Show vs. Kurt Angle -superbly booked triple threat. i didnt expect much but these three delievered and jbl put on another great match in his historic title reign. the best wrestler ever kurt angle carried this match and turned it from good to great-8/10

Casket Match
Undertaker vs. Heidenreich- heidenreichs best match, and one undertakers better matches in his first complete year as the old skool taker. i loved when kane and snistky got involved and from then the match got more physical and the casket was used in great ways-8/10

Shawn Michaels vs. Edge-best opener in years!! seriously great match, it was slow considering who were in the ring but still i loved how the pace changed and the last 5 minutes where phenominal, especially edges unique counter to sweet chin music. unpredictable match with a shocking ending-8.5/10
GET THIS DVD NOW NOT A BAD MATCH IN SIGHT, NOT 1 MATCH WAS LESS THAN GREAT. MAYBE EVEN THE BEST PPV OF 2005 AND THATS SAYING SOMETHING


WWE - Wrestlemania 17 [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars UNIVERSIALLY PRAISED AS THE GREATEST EVENT OF THEM ALL!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 17 [DVD] (DVD)
This event holds a place close to my heart. I was 8 years old, just had been watching wrestling for over a year, and this was to be my 1st ppv i would watch live. In the UK ppvs are from 1 to 4(to 5 for WMs) but at the end of this ppv i was wide awake, in awe in what i had saw. Now this may not be the best event of all time in my eyes(WM 20 & 19 and Summerslam 2002 are better in my eye) but this was one of those mega-events with so many fantastic matches, as strong as an undercard as it gets, some unforgettable moments and some of the biggest matches of all time. What stops it being the best is because of 2 rather poor matches.

No-Disqualification Match for the WWE Championship
The Rock vs. Stone Cold Steve Austin-If there ever was a need for a textbook definition of an epic main event, this my friends is it. You take the two biggest stars in the history of the federation, you put them in the main event at Wrestlemania for the most coverted title in the history of the industry, the WWE Championship, you give them a tremendous build, and you put them in the only state big enough to hold a match as huge as this, Texas, and you have arugably the greatest main event in WM history. They didnt stare each other down, there was no handshakes, from the beginning to the end these two men gave everything, and i mean EVERYTHING, they had to become the WWE Championship. Both men in the build up were desperate to be the WWE Champion and prove they were the best, and this match showed it. The storytelling was tremendous, with both men holding nothing back, and hitting each other with everything they had, including moves not seen in years. The crowd was eating this up for the entire 30minute duration, and i dont think i can recall seing a match more intense, more personal, and more bigger than this. The ending was one of the most iconic in history, with Vince McMahon shockingly helping Austin beat the Rock, forming an alliance i think no one would think they would see. I watched this as a 7year old, and i have never to this day been more enthralled by a main event than this match, and these two put on a match for the ages, a match that defined this event as the greatest of them all in most peoples eyes. EPIC-10/10

Triple H vs. Undertaker- One of those forgotten classics, and up to this point it was the Undertakers best Mania match. HHH for a year was arguably the best worker with fantastic match after another. This match was HUGE, if it wasnt for the main event, this would of been anticapated more than any. The entrances from both men were great, especially HHH who was played to the ring by Motorhead. The match had a very good start, but when it picks up is when Taker hits the chokeslam, HHH kicks out and Taker attacks the ref. From here the ref is stupidly knocked out for almost 10mins and these two men proceeded to brawl all over the relliant astrodome. It was one of those rare brawls in the crowd that was great, highlighted by Taker chokeslamming H off the media stage to the ground! I loved the story of this match, HHH wanting to beat the only guy hes never faced, and it was rumoured he was supposed to win with hbk interferring ( who failed to appear). When they got back in the ring the match was back and forth and unpredictable, HHH hitting Taker with a sledgehammer while attempting a last ride for a close 2 count, and finally Taker hit the tombstone as HHH pummelled him on the corner. Taker went 9-0. Great stuff from two icons-9/10

Gimmick Battle Royal
The Bushwhackers, Duke "The Dumpster" Droese, Iron Sheik, Earthquake, The Goon, Doink The Clown, Kamala, Kim Chee, Repo Man, Jim Cornette, Nikolai Volkoff, Michael P.S. Hayes, One Man Gang, Gobbledy Gooker, Tugboat, Hillbilly Jim, Brother Love & Sgt. Slaughter- Good for nostalgia, but i wasnt born in the '80s so this bored the hell out of me, even though i knew some of these guys. Ill be generous as the commentating was entertaining by Bobby Heenan and Mean Gene. Ok battle royal, but ended to quick and nothing memorable, until after the match-4/10

TLC Match for the World Tag Team Championship
Dudley Boyz vs. Hardy Boyz vs. Edge & Christian - OMG! prepare to be saying that an awful lot while watching this. Most people think this is the best ladder match of all time, and i fail to agree, infact its the worst match between these 3 (Summerslam and WM2000 were better) but nonetheless this match was a culmination of what was essentially a 2 year feud of these 3 great teams and these 6 put a career defining performance with some spots you couldnt pay me to take. Soo many spots, i could sit here all day naming you what occured but i dont want to spoil your enjoyment, as it is one of those matches that watching it without a clue what is going to happen will further enhance your enjoyment of the spectacke. The stand out spot, however, undoubtably had to be Edge spearing Jeff off a 20foot ladder to the ring! One of the best matches of 2001, and the 2nd best match of the night. These 6 had me clapping in appreciation at the end, and trust me when i say this, i dont do that often-9.5/10

Street Fight
Shane McMahon vs. Mr. McMahon- Talk about an overbooked match, if you ever want a visible definiton of overbooking a match, this is it! I loved this, watching it live it had me on my feet. Its strange to think looking back that Vince McMahon, the owner of the company, would go against his first and only son, Shane McMahon, on the grandest stage of them all, the very stage he created 16years ago. The build up to this match, like all the marquee matches, was superb, and started off with Vince openly cheating on his wife, Linda, with WWE Diva Trish Stratus, leading to Linda suffering a nervous breakdown and being paralysed after Vince demanded a divorce, leading to Shane wanting to fight for the love and honour of his mother. What really propelled the rivalry was when Shane purchased WCW under the nose of his Father in one of the great moments in RAW history. As for the match,great stuff, so entertaining, these two along with Foley, Trish, Stephanie and Linda had the crowd on their feet, and their was soo many memorable moments. Shane missing an elbow drow on Vince onto the annouce table, stephanie and trish fighting, Foley attacking Vince, everyones favourite in Linda getting up from a coma and kicking Vince in the nuts, and my favourite, the coast to coast by Shane to Vince. Crazy stuff, fantastic, fun, everything you would want-9/10

WWE Women's Championship Match
Ivory vs. Chyna- Quick squash match, which was disapointing considering whom were in the ring. Chyna wins without much effort and theres not much to say about this-2.5/10

Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit- What a wrestling match! The first fantastic match of the evening, and these two put on an effort that the crowd and us watching at home appreciated, Infact the wwe superstars voted this as one of the top 10 mania matches of all time in 2004! They start of with amateur wrestling, with in my eyes Kurt winning in the beginning, then chris getting into it. As kurt saw benoit winning, he decided to ditch the wrestling and hit chris in the face! What proceeded was a great back and forth match, including diving headbutts, missed moonsaults, ankle locks, crossfaces and more. I loved how Angle, the olympic gold medalist, ended up winning by cheating. Not their best match ever,ut that is a testiment to these two wrestlers and it shows you how good these two were-9/10

European Championship Match
Test vs. Eddie Guerrero- Underrated match right here! Eddie was great as ever, Test put in a good effort in one of the best matches of his career. Often forgotten with a card as stacked as this one, but these two tried and delivered a great match.-8/10

Triple Threat Match for the Hardcore Championship
Raven vs. Kane vs. Big Show- Watching it for the 1st time since seeing it live, this wasnt as good as i remembered. Still it was a fun brawl full of memorable spots all over the Dome. Some memorable moments include Raven getting runned over with a golf cart, raven going through glass i believe and some other memorable moments, including an unforgettable ending. Good stuff, very good, but not great-7.5/10

Val Venis, Bull Buchanan & The Goodfather vs. Tazz & APA-One of the weaker matches of the card, it was decent, but two short to get too involved. Even with that the ending moments lifted up the rating and this was a solid but forgettable effort-6/10

Intercontinental Championship Match
Chris Jericho vs. William Regal-Perfect choice as an opener, setting off the event in the right way, and this match was suprisingly better than i remembered! Lovely technical wrestling exchanges by these two, with some great counters, submission moves and highspots. Jericho won this with a lionsault and these two can be proud of what they did tonight-8/10

Looking at those ratings you can see why this is highly rated, 3 matches rated a 9, one 9.5, one 5star match, two 8s and 1 7.5, thats amazing. If it wasnt for the battle royal and the Divas match, maybe i would say its the best event of all time, but as it is, those were minor bleeps in what was a truly epic and unforgettable WRESTLEMANIA. As for the DVD, very good with strong extras on the lead up to the event and the aftermatch. BUY THIS NOW ITS AS GOOD AS IT GETS!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best wrestlemanias in recent history!!!!!!, 7 Jan 2010
1st off let me say the arena was breathtaking! seriously it looked unbelievable. wwe really knows how to make wrestlemania feel truely unique, epic and special, setting it apart from other ppvs.
It was one of the most anticipated WMs because it had the biggest v the best ric flairs retirement match and the hotly anticipated triple threat wwe championship match

World Heavyweight Championship
Edge vs. The Undertaker-Superb fantastic stuff!!! i know most werent anticipating this much but really, as an edgehead i can tell you i have never anticipated a match as much as this in quite some time, and boy did it deliver! It started off slow with edge controlling things but it soon turned into back and forth action and the fans slowly got into this match big time. Edge countered ALL of takers finishers in new and unique ways. Even the interference couldnt take away from one of the best main events of WM. Great, unpredictable ending as undertaker goes 16-0!!!!-9/10

The Biggest vs. The Best
Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr. vs. The Big Show-this match sold the ppv, and i know alot of people expected a load of crap but this was unbelievable entertaining especially mayweathers posse. The match was booked perfectly and the ending was believable. This match served its purpose-8/10

Triple Threat match for the WWE Championship
Randy Orton vs. Triple H vs. John Cena- the most hotly anticipated match of the show, these three in my eyes put on a sensational match. I cant believe people believe this aint that good, it was one of the best main events of WM this century. no one, and i mean NO ONE expected orton to win but he pulled off arguable the shock of the year. Great intense match full of great moments.Great cena entrance btw-9/10

Playboy BunnyMania Lumberjack MatchMaria and Ashley vs. Beth Phoenix and Melina-ok match, not as bad as people said. Lights go off(thank god) and it had a moemorable moment with snoop dogg and santino-5/10
Career Threatening Match
Ric Flair vs. Shawn Michaels-match of the night and in my eyes, one of the most perfectly done matches EVER.seriously theres so much i could say, but the physcology, intensity, story and drama were all done perfectly. HBK really gave flair the farewell he deserved. 5star match with arguable the most memorable ending to a mania match since hogan picked up andre and slammed him at WM3-10/10 and i dont give that often

ECW Championship
Chavo Guerrero vs. Winner of the Battle Royal-looooool funny , one move, i was entertained so -3/10

Battle for Brand Supremacy

Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Mr. Kennedy vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Chris Jericho vs. Carlito vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. CM Punk vs. John Morrison-FANTASTIC MITB, second best MITB with some unbelievable and never before seen moves like morrisons ladder moonsault on the outside, shelton falling onto a ladder outside, breaking it. great great stuff, too many great moments. the right man won-9.5/10

Belfast Brawl
Finlay vs. JBL-good opener, loved some of the spots like finlays suiced dive onto jbl on the onside, only to meet a trash can lid!!! loved when jbl threw a trash can on horswoggle. good stuff from these two veterans-7.5/10

4.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS ARGUABLY THE BEST ARMAGEDDON EVER!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: Armageddon 2008 [DVD] (DVD)
What a ppv this was, the last ppv of 2008 and it featured huge matches including john cena vs chris jericho, batista vs orton, cm punk vs rey mysterio and the huge triple threat main event!

World Heavyweight Championship Match
John Cena vs. Chris Jericho- I loved this action, it was close to reaching a 9, but just like orton vs batista the midsection dragged it down, but it was better because the restholds were shorter and when the fought, it was SUPERB. Chris jericho is one of those guys that brings the best out of anyone, and him and cena pulled a classic wwe championship match, much better than the survivor series match. Big moves include a bulldog from the apron onto the steel steps , FU, walls of jericho, code breaker and the stfu, whcih instantly made jericho tap. Great stuff here-8.5/10

Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Edge vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Triple H-Similar to last years armageddon in which we had a huge wrestlemania like triple threat main event, and this was much better than last years! What a back and forth match, full of big moves, counters, brawling, high risk from jeff as usual, and one hell of a table spot! last 5 mins just like all matches on this ppv were amazing stuff, it really pulled up the rating. And yes, shockingly jeff hardy won the match, realizing a dream that none of us thought was really possible after he lost to triple h ppv after ppv. What a memorable moment from an unforgettable match. Oh and look out for 2 suprise run ins! -9/10

Batista vs. Randy Orton- Solid bout in a match billed six years in the making. Had alot of hype and expectations and doe it didnt deliever, it was a gd match none the less. It just had too many restholds from randy orton midway (typical randy orton!)it had a hot last 5 mins wid many big moves and the beginning was very good aswel, i jus felt the midsection dragged the rating down. Still the physcology was solid, the bout was physical and i fink the right man won-8/10

Matt Hardy vs. Vladimir Kozlov- Not the right choice as an opener, too slow and one sided to be. But still solid action even doe it was filled with mid match restholds like most matches on the ppv. It was rather stupid making this none title as it gave away the winner. Great commentating may i add-7/10

Belfast Brawl
Finlay vs. Mark Henry-Not bad stuff here, solid infact, and is arguably one of only two mark henry matches that were solid and didnt put u to sleep (the other in my opinion being his casket match with the undertaker) it was more of a spotfest with some comical moments with hornswoggle, a match in which a kendo stick , steel steps and trash cans were used. Finlay is a great editon to the ecw roster, able to pull out a gd match from henry. I fairly enjoyed this more than most-7/10

Intercontinental Title Tournament Final Match
Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk-WHAT A MATCH. WHAT A MATCH. This match is only behind ric flair vs shawn michaels at wm24 for the best match of 2008. I for one anticapated this match very much, and it more than delieved! infact it was sooo close to getting the full 5stars it was that good. I believe this classic is highly underrated. Perfect pace, wondeful uniquee counters, submissions moves used to build suspense and amazing high risk moves such as rey mysterio splashing cm punk on the outside! superb stuff, its matches like this that we dont see too often in wwe, its similar to rvd vs jerry lynn, great stuff one of my personal favourites-9.5/10

Great ppv, in a very good year for the wwe. It was filled with big matches, great matches, and an unforgettable moment. get this dvd NOW


Wrestlemania 2000 [DVD]
Wrestlemania 2000 [DVD]

3.0 out of 5 stars One of the most disapointing Wrestlemania's in recent memory!, 7 Jan 2010
This review is from: Wrestlemania 2000 [DVD] (DVD)
WWE in 2000 was one of the hottest years in the history of the company. Stellar ppvs such as royal rumble, no way out, backlash, fully loaded, summerslam and judgment day led people to believe this ppv will be up their with the best. Sadly this was not the case. For all of WWEs great bookings in that year, they dropped the ball on this event. While it wasnt trash, for a WM you would expect so much more. Even so, 3 fantastic matches saved this show greatly.

Fatal Four-Way Elimination Match for the WWE Championship
Triple H vs. Mick Foley vs. Big Show vs. The Rock- This was it, THE main event. This was hyped like no other, and most of us believed this would be fantastic. It was months worth of build, with the Rock getting screwed both at the Rumble and No Way Out by Show and Shane, while Foley returned after being retired by the Game at No Way Out for one last match. The main focus of the build was that there was a McMahon in every corner: Shane for Big Show, Vince for the Rock, Stephanie for HHH and Linda for Foley. The stage was set and this match was given a hell of alot of time, as its the second longest match in WM history, clocking in at 36minutes,and after second viewing, it is much better than i remembered and dare i say underrated, and even for such a long match didnt have any significant slowdown. The action was great, it flowed well, the crowd were into anything the Rock did and the McMahons added to the unpredictability. The story was good(even though it was stupid that Foley returned not too long after losing a retirement match) but the match more than made up for the dodgy booking. The section with Big Show was very good, but once he got eliminated, the match went hot and cold from their. Some moments were botched( Foley not connecting with his elbow drop on the announcers table) and the fans wernt really into it as i said apart from portions the Rock dominated. However it was a great match, and the Rock/Triple H battle was great. And the ending was SHOCKING to say the least. Vince turned on the Rock, and Triple H became the FIRST heel to EVERY retain the title at a WM main event. I love the moment after the match when to Rock attacked Shane, Vince and HHH, and hit Stephanie with the Rock bottom and the People's Elbow!When you watch it in a nutshell its a great match, but when you go into it with expectations and getting into the hype, you'll end up being disapointed as I first was-8.5/10

X-Pac & Road Dogg vs. Rikishi & Kane- Once again, solid yet unspectacular. The memorable moment was Pete Rose AGAIN appearing at WM, and once again getting chokeslammed by Kane. But in addition, he recieved a WM style stink face! These 4 men are good at drawing the crowd into their matches, yet they didnt tonight, and for that they can be disapointed-6/10

Mixed Tag Team Match
Eddie Guerrero, Perry Saturn & Dean Malenko vs. Chyna & Too Cool- One of the more positive matches of the event. They delieved a fun match, but what seems to be the story of the event, it was unspectacular. The work of Chyna and Eddie particularly impressed me, as Chyna held her own among 5 other talented athletes. Good match, with a rather shocking winner, or maybe thats just me lol-7/10

Two Fall Triple Threat Match for the Intercontinental & European Championship
Kurt Angle vs. Chris Jericho vs. Chris Benoit- WOW this was good, the reviews were positive, but i didnt expect a match this good! Wonderful triple threat, whats even more impressive is the fact that this could of been MUCH better as it looked like they were holding back. Great one on one wrestling from each 3 men, hitting all they signature moves and pulling me in. What hurts this match were the rather unspectacular falls which prevented this match from reaching a higher rating. Needless to say, they achieved their goal, putting on a true wrestling match that almost stole the show. It is memorable as Kurt Angle, the wrestler of the decade in my opinion, lost BOTH his titles in the match, WITHOUT GETTING PINNED! great booking-9/10

Cat Fight
Terri (w/ Fabulous Moolah) vs. The Kat (w/ Mae Young)- How many wrestlemanias will i review that has atleast 1 trashtastic match. Poor and boring in everyway, even the eye candy couldnt help this one-2/10

Triangle Ladder Match for the World Tag Team Championship
Dudley Boyz vs. Edge & Christian vs. Hardy Boyz- This, ladies and gentlemen, is one of the greatest WM matches you will ever see in the past decade! You talk about raising the bar, Shawn and Ramon might have invented the Ladder match, but these guys took it to a COMPLETELY different level, one that was the basework for spectacular ladder matches you see now. These teams had put on some amazing matches over the months:Hardys vs E&C at no mercy and no way out were fantastic and the tables match between the Dudleys and the Hardys at the rumble was truly epic. But somehow, someway, these guys topped themselves again(they would go on to top themselves AGAIN finally at summerslam), this match was a spotfest galore. But unlike the Mania match the next year, this felt organic, it felt real, they actually wanted to win, not just try and out do previous spots. I loved this match, very close to a 5stars, with some of the most unforgettable spots you will ever see, none more spectacular than Jeff hitting the swanton bomb on Bubba on the outside on one hell of a HUGE ladder. One of my favourite spots ever! Theres just too many to name literally, i was in awe, i was saying OMG every 10seconds! Just watch this, and compare it to TLCII and you'll see why i say this match is better in everyway, and is in my opinion one of the top 3 ladder matches in the companies history. I applaud these guys for their spectacular and unforgettable effort to steal the show at WM2000, which i believe they did-9.5/10

Al Snow & Steve Blackman vs. Test & Albert- Not the dud that everyone says it is. Yes it had no real structure or heat, but there was some good moments and tag team moves, making this a solid if unspectacular tag team match. The stupidness after the match is what really hurts this, it was trash!-6/10

Hardcore Battle Royal for the Hardcore Championship, featuring
Crash Holly, Tazz, Viscera, Pete Gas, Rodney, Joey Abs, Hardcore Holly, Taka Michinoku, Funaki, Mosh, Thrasher, Faarooq & Bradshaw- I was looking forward to seeing this. Yes it had a mixed reaction, some said it was good, some said it was boring, but i thought i would be leaning to the good side. It started off good, but it only degraded from then on into a rather tedious and boring encounter which did have its fun spots, but couldnt hold my atention for long. Another disapointing match-6/10

Godfather & D-Lo Brown vs. Big Boss Man & Bull Buchanan- Not the best choice as an opener, nonetheless it wasnt really bad, it was acceptable match which shockingly kept me interested. These guys can be proud they didnt really stink the house down like i expected, but they didnt really do nothing spectacular either-6/10

This would of been a great event if it was called anything other than WM. WM has a different standard from other events, as fans we expect it to be an event that annually seperates it from others. They achieved that this year, but not the way they wanted. Instead of being an epic event, it was a dispointing event that seperated it from the many fantastic events that same year. However there was one standout, the triple threat ladder match, which will go down as one of the great Mania matches of all time, with the single most epic moment of the whole event. The DVD was GREAT with an excellent second disc for the time with 10minute highlights for all the previous 15 WMs. Get this if, like me, you collect WMs regardless of how good, but if your looking for a great event from the year not even the decade, theres PLENTY MORE better out their.

4.0 out of 5 stars AN OVERAL EPIC AND RECORD BREAKING WM!, 22 Dec 2009
This review is from: WWE - Wrestlemania 23 [DVD] (DVD)
The 23rd edition of the biggest show in wrestling resides from detroit in front of a record 80,103, breaking grossing and ppv records in the process. It consisted of 3 main events, 2 world championship matches and the "battle of the billionaires".
WWE Championship Match
John Cena vs. Shawn Michaels- If the world championship war was a sprint, this was a marathon. The match was faught in a strategic and methodical pace, but i prefer it this way. 2 of the biggest superstars in the current wwe progam pulled in my opinion the match of the night and one HELL of a main event. The pre match package was the best ive seen, the entrances(especially cenas) was fantastic and the fans were fairly into it(not as much as the other chamiponship match). It had that natural epic feel. The match starts off slowly with HBK dominating, but after the superb moonsault on the outside to cena onto the table, to me it is when the match picks up big time. It also contained a very rare and dangerous move in which michaels pildrived cena onto the steps. Great stuff. What really changes this match from a great match to arguably an epic in my opinion were two things. One was the last 5-10mins. The action from here was some of the best ive seen in wrestling history, back and forth and unpredictable sequences. Second was JRs commentary. This guy has a nack for turning it up for the biggest matches and he does it again here, making this match feel special and huge. Cena wins with a suprising stfu tap out, leaving one of the biggest wrestlemanias of all time as WWE champion. This is a true wrestling match that long time fans will truly appreciate. Fabulous WM main event- 9/10

Lumberjill Match for the WWE Women's Championship
Melina vs. Ashley Massaro- One of the worse matches ive seen from any wm, but they always have to have atleast one crap match, and this was it. Boring, uneventful and the ending was strange indeed. Blah-3/10

Battle of the Billionaires Hair vs. Hair Match
Bobby Lashley (w/ Donald Trump) vs. Umaga (w/ Mr. McMahon)
Steve Austin as Special Guest Referee- I think the overbooking made this match. This is the match the whole event was selling on. That marquee match up. Hair vs Hair with stone cold as the ref. The action was alright but it wasnt meant to be a benoit vs angle epic, it was meant to be entertaining for hardcore and casual fans alike, and i believe it delivered. Ending was interesting as many non competing particapants got involved, even donald trump! Lashley picks up the victory thanks to a stone cold stunner and what proceeds is one of those Mania moments: the owner of the company getting his head shaved bald. Hilarious. But what was even more funny was what occured after in which austin stunnered trump! never trust the rattlesnake. Good match but Great booking. Im gonna be genorous here-8/10

The ECW Originals (Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, The Sandman & Rob Van Dam) vs. The New Breed (Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, Matt Striker & Kevin Thorn)- The much anticapted debuts of past ecw stars come off rather undewhelming. The action wasnt bad, infact it was a fun 8 man tag, but when you have so many extreme superstas, u NEED weapons, thats what let this match down. The finishers galore at the end was a neat touch, and the ECW veterans won their first(and for some their only) WM match-6.5/10

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Batista vs. Undertaker-WOW! Thats was my reaction at the end of the 1st time seeing this epic war. Superb stuff. What i like about this match was the fantastic build and hype, the entrances, the feel, the fans were into this BIGTIME, booing Batista in the process. The start of the match was fantastic stuff. Batista instantly hit the Undertaker with a spear and from their it was straight balls to the walls action, never letting up. It was like a sprint. The match period was perfect, the spots were layed out perfectly, the animosity could be felt, it was back and forth, i just have too much praise for this match. These two promised before hand in many local interviews to steal the show, and for many they did. Infact, at 1st viewing i was going to give this match a 9.5! But 2nd viewing made me believe this match just barely missed such a high rating. Unpredictable stuff, for a second it truly looked that Batista, more than anyone else would end the streak. The ending sequence like the other main event was top notch, with Undertaker picking up the win with a tombstone and with that winning his second world title at a WM, the previous being exactly 10 years ago at WM13. EPIC EPIC EPIC match, unforgettable-9/10

United States Championship Match
Chris Benoit vs. MVP-This match was the sleeper of the night. It was suprisingly fantastic UNTIL the anti-climatic ending with benoit winning with the headbutt. Just when it looks like the two were going to pick it up a gear it ends suddenly, and that hurt the match and the rating greatly. Still, chris made MVP a star here, pulling him through his 1st truly great match. Great technical and ground based match up, with the right man winning-8/10

Kane vs. The Great Khali- I dont think many will agree with me, but this match isnt as bad as people say, however thats not saying much as it isnt too good either. Average at best between two of the hugest superstar in the WWE, with a throwback moment to WM3 with kane bodyslamming Khali ala Hogan slamming andre in this same state. Strange ending but ok, if not boring action-5.5/10

Money in the Bank Ladder Match
Mr. Kennedy vs. Finlay vs. Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy vs. King Booker vs. CM Punk vs. Edge vs. Randy Orton-The most star studded MITB ended up being a disapointment. Thats not to say it wasnt good, infact it was a fantastic opener, one of the best in Mania history, however there wasnt enough from the main superstars. Edge was elminated by Jeff after an INSANE spot, and afterwards we dont see much from jeff, CM punk does very little and there are too many repeated sequences of guys hitting their finishers on 3-4 guys in a row. It just lost steam with such action. However their were some unbelievable moments such as an rko from the top and many others. Great match, right winner, disapointing on a whole-8.5/10
Great WM, and as for the DVD the extras are arguably the best in any WM dvd released. 2 epic main events, a strong if not underwhelming undercard and many WM moments that wont be forgotten too soon, This is one event that just felt BIG. BUY ASAP!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IT ALL BEGINS AGAIN!, 22 Dec 2009
This review is from: WWE WrestleMania XX [DVD] (DVD)
Wrestlemania xx was and still is one of the most historically significant wrestlemanias of all time. 20 years in the making, where it all started, madison square garden. Fantastic main events, some of the most anticapted duels in Mania history, shocking moments, unforgettable ending and the most anticapted return of any wrestler this decade, all in one show!

World Heavyweight Championship
Triple H vs. Chris Benoit vs. Shawn Michaels- After alot of consideration, this has to be in my opinion the greatest wrestling match i have ever seen. The build up was fantastic stuff, the match didnt have an OMG moment or an insane bump, it was just an obsorbing, back and forth intense triple threat match. Epic feel, madison square garden really got into this half way through. Each man turned up in this match, each giving aruably their best performances of their careers. Great moments include the moonsault by michaels onto both chris and hhh, and a double suplex by hhh and hbk on chris through the announcers table! JR once again made this epic, the day this guy leaves wreslting will be a sad day. The ending is now one of the most tainted famous moments in wrestling history, chris shockingly making triple h tap out for his first heavyweight championship in WWE. Eddie comes out and celebrates with chris in an excellent emotional moment. Its a shame that just 3years later these guys would be dead, and the controversial death of 1 makes this match none existent according to the WWE. But that should take nothing greatly away from a match at the time i held close to my heart as the single greatest match in the history of the sport known as wrestling. The hatred between the Game and HBK was clear and apparent, the determination of Benoit to finally win the big one on the biggest stage drove him to get up even after going through an annouce table. Unbelievable. GREATEST MATCH OF ALL TIME-10/10

Undertaker vs. Kane -This was one the many anticapted matches on this card, mainly due to the Undertaker returning to his old persona. My personal favourite entrance in Mania history. Even paul bearer returns! The match didnt get much time, but kane got a good amount of offense and still looked rather strong. But this moment was truly for the Undertaker, as he went 12-0 at wrestlemania with a tombstone, beating his brother for the second time in WM. Decent match, though doesnt hold up well when compared to their first Wrestlemania encounter 6 years previous-6.5/10

WWE Championship
Kurt Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero-The first thing i thought of when i witnessed this battle was WHAT A WRESTLING MATCH. Most true wrestling fans thought this would steal the show, and it was damn near close to being such. The build up with Kurt Angle feeling Eddie being the WWE Champion was a discredit to the company was touchy yet perfectly done, giving Eddie that extra motivation to beat arguably the best in the world and prove he is worthy of being champion. The exchanges were crisp, physical and exciting, it constantly teased a brawl scenario but it remained largely ground based throughout. The last 10 minutes were the most unpredictable of the match and the ending was ingenious, ive never seen an ending like it! One downside was the lack of crowd interest, who were dead throughout the match. Still one of the best WWE championship matches in recent memory. A worthy main event on the 20th anniversary-9/10

Women's Championship
Molly vs. Victoria- Disapointing from these two, it was good for a womans match, but it could of been soo much better. None the less decent effort from both divas, and the hair shaving of molly is arguably the most memorable womans moment in Mania history-6/10

Fatal Four-Way for the WWE Tag Championship
Scotty 2 Hotty 7 Rikishi vs. APA vs. Basham Brothers vs. World's Greatest Tag Team- One of the weaklinks of the show. Entertaining to a degree, but too short, no heat and not everyone got a good time to show their stuff(farooq never got tagged in!) Doesnt deserve to be in WM and could of been a good tag team match but ended up being an average attempt-5.5/10

Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar
Special referee: Stone Cold Steve Austin-To many of us this clash of the titans was the most anticapted match of the entire show, and thats say someting considering the sheer weight of super matches on this show. But boy this is one of the most disapointed efforts of all time. Neither man looked bothered, knowing this would be boths last match in their tenure in WWE. The new york fans turned this into an interesting battle, as they turned on both guys, practically saying goodbye to them and saying the match is boring! It took them like 5minutes to even grapple, the last sequence was good, but the whole match could of been so much better. Austin stunned both men after the match, sending the fans home happy. Im going to be generous as this was fun to watch. Entertaining as a spectacle considering the circumstances, but not much of a match-7/10

Open Cruiserweight Match- Very good spotfest, but too short on time. Each man had no more than 2-4minutes in the ring before they were eliminated. Still this match was exciting, with some great spots, such as Kidmans shooting star press onto the outside! The last two men were Chavo and Rey, with Rey getting screwed by Chavo Snr. Great spotfest once again. Could of been epic-8/10

Playboy Evening Gown Match
Sable & Torrie vs. Stacy & Miss Jackie- Great eye-candy, rubbish match. Simple as that. THE worst mania match i can recall seing-2/10

Rock 'n' Sock Connection vs. Ric Flair, Randy Orton & Batista-FANTASTIC ENTERTAINING MATCH. a personal favourite of mine that even after repetitive viewing has never failed to entertain me. One of the best Mania matches i can recall, and its a shame its often forgotten due to the superb main event, as i dont recall anyone mentioning this huge match among the best of the events history. The build was wonderful, with Orton disrespecting every legend you could think of, spitting on their faces, leading to Foley being disgusted by his actions and Evolution constantly beating down Foley( the infamous punt by Orton on Foley on the stair case in this same arena) leading to the Rock making his return to help his old buddie. If there was ever a need for a visible definition of sports entertainment, this is it. It puts the E in WWE. The interaction between Flair and the Rock was the stuff of legends, if only the two had a one on one meeting. Hot match up, the fans were into this, and it is notable as being Orton and Batistas 1st Mania match and the Rocks last match to date. Legends past, present and future were all involved with this one. EPIC ENTERTAINING MATCH, with Orton picking up the win with an rko on foley out of nowhere-9.5/10

Christian vs. Chris Jericho- Another fantastic match, the 1st of the show. Two of my personal favourites putting on a match lacking in physcology but full of intensity and excitment. Once again this was a match of long term booking as the two former Tag Team Champions were torn apart by the love of a woman, a classic story that was done to perfection. The fans loved this. Unpredictable match, shocking ending and an even more shocking turn by Trish Stratus on Jericho, slapping him twice and kissing Christian! A great Mania match with a great Mania moment-9/10

World Tag Team Titles Match
Booker T & RVD vs. Jindrak & Cade vs. La Resistance vs. Dudley Boys- The better of the two tag team matches, and its no suprise as the wrestlers here are generally better. Not much to say about this one, it was a decent effort by all 8 men, and it never got boring-6.5/10

U.S. Championship
John Cena vs. Big Show- Entertaining opener, Great rap by Cena, and the fans got into this match up, mainly due to Cenas charisma. Abit slow when Big show took control, but the chemistry between these two guys is great, as they know how to work with each others strengths and weaknesses. Cena wins with a shocking FU on a 500 pound man! Cenas 1st title win and its funny how much a year makes, as Cena at WM21 was in the main event. Good stuff here-7/10

This is one of those personal favourites. Its one of those events that has a split reaction. Some think its a disapointing Mania, some think its one of the best, and i would agree with the later. This show was jus EPIC. It didnt need 70,000 fans, gimick matches or celebritys to feel epic, Some of the most unforgettable moments in Mania history happened on this show. The DVD is FANTASTIC. Manias top ten matches is a fantastic documentary and so is the "Mania before Wrestlemania", the background story to WM19. Its filled with many other extras. Get this DVD now, its my personal favourite!

5.0 out of 5 stars ARGUABLY THE BEST PPV OF 2007!, 21 Dec 2009
This review is from: WWE - Backlash 2007 [DVD] (DVD)
This was a fantastic follow up to a solid and rather spectacular Wrestlemania.All 6 matches were title matches and the 3 main events were hugely anticapted and this pay per view contained the best match of 2007 and one of the best Last Man Standing matches you potentially will ever see!
Fatal Four-Way match for the WWE Championship
John Cena vs. Edge vs. Randy Orton vs. Shawn Michaels- Fantastic fast pasted match, while the other championship match was a physical encounter, this match was more of a dance, with excellent counter upon counter sequences, pulling the crowd and the viewers into the match. They were many big spots i loved in this match, including a moonsault by michaels onto all 3 men on the outside upon others. Infact, after two views i was considering this a 5star match( i think im the only one who thought this!) but then i had to drop it down a bit as i thought it lacked much story telling( storytelling is key to get 5stars from me). The ending sequence was FANTASTIC and i think all 4 men held nothing back making this the best match in 2007 and with the exclusion of michaels, possibly the match of their lives. EXCELLENT-9.5/10

World Heavyweight Championship Match
The Undertaker vs. Batista-Let me get this out of the way, this was better than the Mania match. WHAT A MATCH THIS WAS! Just like the Mania epic this started off at a frantic pace, with Undertaker big booting Batista to set the pace. From then on it was high impact upon high impact, big move after big move, brilliant. The leg drop by Taker onto a prone Batista on the announcers table was a site to behold! They played off the last man stipulation excellently, Batista looking to do anything to win the title back he lost at Wrestlemania. The final spot, an explosion of sorts, to me was not as bad as people believe, i believed that a defeat for either was not nessecary. If you loved the Mania match, you'll love this even more!-9.5/10

Handicap Match for the ECW World Championship
Bobby Lashley vs. Umaga, Shane McMahon & Vince McMahon- Highly disapointing match, i was expecting a spot filled Vinne mac typical encounter, what we got was practically an uneventful handicap match with no big spots. It wasnt bad, but it wasnt anything you will look back on any time soon. Vince barely got any action, yet he left this match as the ECW champion, burying the show in the process-7/10

United States Championship Match
Chris Benoit vs. MVP- Very good encounter here, technical wrestling displayed at its finest here. MVP was made a star by chris through their series of matches, and i personally think this was the best one. Just like the wrestlemania match, this was a great wrestling match which drew me in, but just like the mania match, the abrupt ending held back the rating. Still a great match, the wrong man one, but none the less these two have amazing chemistry together-8/10

Women's Championship Match
Melina vs. Mickie James-The best womans match in a long time, physical, great wrestling, some impressive moments such as the divas dueling while doing the splits! Two of my personal favourite divas(especially mickie!) the action was really entertaining unlike the majority of divas matches, and i believe the right person one. Good stuff here-7.5/10

World Tag Team Championship Match
The Hardys vs. Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch- The Hardys are always a great choice to open up any show, as they always get the crowd involved. I personally love the contrasting styles of the two teams, and i believed they gel well. The action was never boring, the spots got the crowd involved and the ending was fast paced and unpredictable. Fantastic tag team match with many great spots and a great ending. Perfect opener-8.5/10

This is one of the most consistent ppvs of all time, if it wasnt for the ECW match, this could of been up their with the best. Fantastic main events, great mid card and each match was giving the perfect time needed. It was just a pure wrestling show, something the WWE should do more of. The DVD is nothing special, but buy this fore the special event. GET THIS NOW
