WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match

Gregory Helms vs Super Crazy

3/5

Not a bad little match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

Super Crazy got the match to a high flying start, with some high flying moves, in and out of the ring.

In the end though it was Gregory Helms who cheated his way on retaining the WWE...

Judgement Day 2006. A SmackDown pay-per-view from the old days. Anything to be excited about from this particular year?

Judgement Day 2006. A SmackDown pay-per-view from the old days. Anything to be excited about from this particular year? Well, the main attractions were Rey Mysterio's very first World Heavyweight title defence against JBL and the King of the Ring tournament being brought back after a four-year-hiatus. For the most part though, this is a pretty forgettable show with some typical-exciting SmackDown matches, some absolutely rubbish bouts and the foundations being laid for much greater things.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match
MNM (Champions w/Melina) vs. Paul London & Brian Kendrick
Absolutely wicked opener where history is made. The white-hot heels MNM face-off against the equally white-hot London & Kendrick in a fast-paced, exciting blinder of a tag-team outing. Super tandem-offence and great work from all four wrestlers (plus Melina) make for an exhilarating display that you'd only get on SmackDown. Watch out for the ultra-pleasing outcome and the outstanding aftermath that follows. (8/10)

Chris Benoit vs. Finlay
Two of the greatest mat-technicians in history, two proud veterans and familiar faces square off once more in a twenty-minute pure wrestling epic. Psychology, stiff-shots, fluid exchanges; it's just the kind of bout you'd expect from the likes of Benoit and Finlay. Simple excellence. (8/10)

Jillian Hall vs. Melina
I've always believed that WWE could've done so much more with Jillian Hall. She was a great women's wrestler who deserved a better push than what she was given. Anyway, this is a solid women's match between two ladies who could put on a good contest. Finish serves its purpose in continuing the ongoing MNM storyline throughout the night. (6/10)

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match
Gregory Helms (Champion) vs. Super Crazy
Another great outing from the longest-reigning Cruiserweight Champ in history. I still miss the Cruiserweight Division on SmackDown, and Super Crazy in particular reminds me why. Over with the crowd - particular with the ECW faithful - the Mexicool shines again with some terrific aerial offence and displays. Good work from both, good length...just a shame about the outcome and the cheap finish. (8/10)

Kurt Angle vs. Mark Henry
Back when the World's Strongest Man was in the midst of his 2006 main-event push it fell to Kurt Angle to try and get a good match out of Mark. And he does just that. Ever the pro, the Olympic Gold Medallist went out there and made the most of it. At the time, Henry wasn't ready for this (unlike his 2011 success), and the flat finish doesn't help any. But the aftermath is SO awesome that we really should be thanking Kurt again for being the legend he is. (7/10)

2006 King of the Ring Final
Booker T (w/Sharmell) vs. Bobby Lashley
I never wanted to see the King of the Ring go away, and I was so happy when WWE brought it back for 2006 (and has since come into play every few years). Admittedly, I've gotten much more excited for previous KOTR finals due to entire tournaments actually taking place on the NIGHT, instead of leading up to a pay-per-view here. Nevertheless, history IS made here as Booker T was FINALY given his long overdue push in what's a good contest. Sadly, it never really gets going but there are some nice exchanges between Booker and Lashley. Finlay's involvement works, and the aftermath is entertaining. (6/10)

The Undertaker vs. The Great Khali (w/Daivari)
This is where it all started. Khali's in-ring debut against one of wrestling's all-time greats, who unfortunately was tasked with establishing the giant as a legitimate threat. Taker tried his absolute best, but Khali's non-existent ability SHOWS, so it's only natural for the match to bomb. The ludicrous outcome doesn't make this any easier to digest. The ONLY blessing you'll get from watching this is knowing that at least it's not as bad as Undertaker vs. Giant Gonzales from WrestleMania IX! (2/10)

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Rey Mysterio (Champion) vs. John "Bradshaw" Layfield
The main-event's build-up and the clash itself sums up in a nutshell all that was right and wrong with Rey's world title reign in 2006. Fed as a glorified jobber to Mark Henry and Great Khali, then coming into a defence against JBL with NO momentum? Talk about silly booking! Despite this trend haunting Mysterio's run, the man could at least show why he's most worthy to hold a world championship, as he puts in a valiant effort against Bradshaw, in a bruising, vicious main-event. Worthwhile main-event with a pleasing result. Match of the night. (8/10)

There are three Home Exclusive extras on this disc. A ho-hum backstage segment between Chavo & Vickie Guerrero, a monotonous interview with the Great Khali, and (the best on offer) the 2006 King of the Ring's coronation from SmackDown. This is WORTH watching to see the rightful winner enter the next phase of his legendary career with a great segment.

For historical reasons, Judgement Day 2006 is an event worth checking out, with all the title matches and Benoit/Finlay being things of excellence. Again though, Undertaker vs. Khali is abysmal, and that really sours the mood. The KOTR final (despite its importance and the greatness it would create for the winner) doesn't have the match-quality to reflect the stakes and really, this whole show wasn't something people were gonna talk about for years to come. Good enough from SmackDown, but hardly the best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like most Judgement Day PPV's, 2 Jan 2014
This review is from: WWE - Judgment Day 2006 [DVD] (DVD)
This was you're average Judgement Day PPV with some nice and some ugly matches Ratings here -

Tag Team Match For WWE Tag Team titles
Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs MNM (Joey Mercury & Johnny Nitro W/ Melina) - 6/10

Eh an okay match fans were not that hyped on the match but still good wrestling and at the end of the match Nitro & Melina attacked Mercury for losing the match.

Singles Match
Finlay vs Chris Benoit - 5/10

Again an okay match not amazing some good spots here and there but to be fair it was quite boring.

Singles Match
Jillian Hall vs Melina - 7/10

An actual good diva's match that the fans seemed to like, the girls showed that the diva's division didn't suck that much back then!

Singles Match For WWE curs-weight Championship
Super Crazy vs Gregory Helms - 2/10

A terrible boring match that I did not like nor did the fans.

Singles Match
Kurt Angle vs Mark Henry 8/10

Now this was a good match! It was not boring there was a very surprizing ending and like most Kurt Angle matches it was entertaining and the fans seemed to like it as-well

Singles Match King of the Ring Finals
Booker T W/ Sharmell vs Bobby Lashley - 7/10

Again a good match where they crown the King... King Booker with Queen Sharmell!

Singles Match
The Great Khali W/ Daivari vs The Undertaker - 4/10

A boring match again with nothing really special about it.

Singles Match For World Heavyweight Championship
JBL vs Rey Mysterio - 6/10

An all right match with some good times the fans enjoyed it and so did I.

Overall - 6/10
An okay PPV we could really of seen this on a SmackDown match card but hey it was okay.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match

Gregory Helms vs Super Crazy

3/5

Not a bad little match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

Super Crazy got the match to a high flying start, with some high flying moves, in and out of the ring.

In the end though it was Gregory Helms who cheated his way on retaining the WWE Cruiserweight Championship, with the use of the ropes.

Jillian Hall vs Melina

2/5

Possibly the worst match of the night, as it was an all out scrap fight.

Don't get me wrong, both these WWE divas are true talents, but this match didn't work for me.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match

MNM vs Brian Kendrick & Paul London

3/5

Not a bad opener to the pay-per-view, with both teams being very competitive throughout the entire match. Mercury and Nitro were the dominating team, and had lots of chances of retaining their WWE Tag Team Championships.

In the end though it was Kendrick and London who found a way of defeating Mercury and Nitro to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.

Plus after the match, there was a brutal fallout between MNM, who just lost their tempers and started brawling with one and other.

Chris Benoit vs Finlay

4/5

What can I say, but an excellent one on one match, involving two superstars who know each other really well.

This match was pretty much a technical match, that had a lot of in ring mat action and a lot of grapples on the mat.

In the end it was Benoit who found a way of defeating Finlay e.g. the Crippler Crossface.

Kurt Angle vs Mark Henry

3/5

A tad better than their match at Royal Rumble 2006, with Angle dominating the start of this match, and then was taken over by Henry.

The match itself ended with Angle being counted out, and Henry declared the winner, but Angle wasn't finished with the World's Strongest Man.

Angle did the Angle Slam to Henry, on the announce table which did not break, but the use of a steel chair did, when Angle struck Henry with the chair, and Henry crashing through the announce table.

KOTR Final

Lashley vs Booker T

3/5

I've seen better King of the Ring finals, but this match was exceptionally a good one.

Constant back and forth action from both superstars, which had plenty of near pin falls.

Though when we all thought that Lashley had the win in the grasp of his hand, it was taken away by Finlay, who struck Lashley with a weapon, and Booker taking the advantage of hitting a second Scissor Kick, to become the 2006 King of the Ring.

Undertaker vs The Great Khali

3/5

Not a bad match, to what many people make it out to be.

I have to admit that the Undertaker's efforts in this match was good, as he wearing down the Great Khali, with jabs and punches, and an exceptional amount of some good power moves.

Though in the end, we the WWE fans were shocked when the Great Khali defeated The Undertaker, with a simple kick to the head, and of course we knew that this rivalry wasn't over.

World Heavyweight Championship Match

Rey Mysterio vs JBL

4/5

This match I would give match of the night to, as it really did deliver and these two always have good matches against one and other.

A pretty back and forth action kind of match, with Mysterio picking up some good domination in the match and not allowing JBL to wear him down too easily.

Though there was a point where JBL did have some domination over Mysterio, especially in between the match, with Mysterio busted up.

In the end though it was Mysterio who found the edge of delivering the thunderous 619 to JBL, and Mysterio walking out of WWE Judgment Day 2006, still the World Heavyweight Champion.

ive seen plenty of ppv's, but i must say this was dissapointing despite its seemingly flawless matchcard. Mark Henry vs Kurt Angle was entertaining, but undertaker carried great khali through a truly atroucious match, the main event was also relatively boring.

mnm vs london and kendrick 6/10

Benoit vs Finlay 6/10

super crazy vs helms 6/10

Mark Henry vs Kurt Angle 6/10

Booker t vs bobby lashley 6/10

Undertaker vs khali 2/10

JBL vs rey mysterio 5/10

2.0 out of 5 stars we have seen better and worse, 1 July 2008

May 2006 and smackdown got its chance to showcase its undoubted talent and try and prove that they have what it takes to be the premier brand,sadly this didnt materialise but as much as fellow reviewers have slammed this event,i didnt think it was excessively
bad,but then again it wasnt consistently strong either.
The event opened up with the tag tag titles up for contention,the champions MNM went up against paul london and brian kendrick in a very solid and lively encounter,at times bedlam was the order of the day as things giot hectic which can translate to messy but a high order of quality was maintained for the most part.
Finlay and chris benoit were up next in what was a 20 minute brawl with some mat wrestling thrown in for good measure so if that doesnt sound good then take note now,this was ok in truth but looked awkward at times and most certainly clumsy and these two had better matches on smackdown but obviously they werent given the running time that they had here and they didnt entirely waste it but it was a bit excessive.
Jillian hall and melina were up next in a forgettable match that is noted for the aftermath and what occured between melina,johnny nitro and teddy long,at least that cheered the crowd up after this match.
The cruiserweight championship was contested next as the champ gregory helms was pitted against supercrazy,this was a fair to midland contest,and while at times thats acceptable,i feel that both men are so much better than this,it felt like they were holding something back,i most certainly expected more but this match still had something going for it.
Mark henry and kurt angle were up next in a match that had a fair bit of heat going into it,some of these matches on this night didnt by the way,this match was good and has a brutal aftermath that is memorable,as for the match itself,it was good,angles style was limited due to injured ribs but mark henry did well here along with a very skilled rival and this wasnt the turkey that i feared it would be.
The king of the ring final was up next as booker T went up against lashley,this match was solid as well but didnt rank as a classic,the aftermath of this was again good,there was plenty of aftermath moments here as a whole,perhaps to add fire to the viewing quality of smackdown!,anyway,this was a good enough match that brought an acceptable level of interest and quality to the table.
The undertaker and the great khali were up next in a match that was more of a statement of intent than a match,very one sided but the undertaker still had to work hard to make khali look good here,the end result was certainly chilling,if not a little contrived but it made for an interesting few weeks thereafter.
The main event was next,the world heavyweight title was on the line as rey mysterio went up against JBL who was as nasty as ever here.This was a good match in truth and rey worked hard against a bigger oppenent while JBL enjoyed moments of pure domination but couldnt resist boasting and gloating,the ending was a little jumbled but still entertaining but as i look back over this review my mind is awash with the notion that this could have been better and could have been worse,there was certainly plenty to talk about here but not always from bell to bell but i am happy enough with a 2.5 rating out of 5.

1.0 out of 5 stars worst wwe ppv EVER!!!, 22 Aug 2006

Having 15 years worth of WWE ppvs in my memory i thought it best to warn those who might be thinking of this ppv that it is the worst event ever! Nothing sticks in the mind more that the appalling match between The Undertaker and The Great Khali - it's no wonder Khali hasn't actually wrestled on a ppv since. The other matches (JBL vs Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle vs Mark Henry, Super Crazy vs Gregory Helms) fail to carry any heat and have been seen many times before at other ppvs or on Smackdown. Only the Benoit vs Finlay match has any real credit to this disaster! My thoughts?....avoid like the plague!
