4.0 out of 5 stars For the FINAL time...Judgement Day is upon us!
As wrestling fans remember, WWE changed the names of the majority of its annual pay-per-views in 2009, with the company now going into full swing with its PG rating. We said goodbye to exciting, cutting edge names like No Way Out, Backlash (and Unforgiven & No Mercy in 2008)...and we also bid a fond farewell to Judgement Day.

Starting in October 1998(!) before...

3.0 out of 5 stars not the years best
first things first,judgement day 2009 was a good event ,it did however have the odd botch in it which messed the flow of an event that should have been better than it was.
The event contained some real killer with edge vs jeff hardy and jericho vs rey rey,i have to say that swagger vs christian and shelton vs john morrison was a bit average while cena vs the big show...

As wrestling fans remember, WWE changed the names of the majority of its annual pay-per-views in 2009, with the company now going into full swing with its PG rating. We said goodbye to exciting, cutting edge names like No Way Out, Backlash (and Unforgiven & No Mercy in 2008)...and we also bid a fond farewell to Judgement Day.

Starting in October 1998(!) before settling into the May slot of WWE's annual schedule, Judgement Day has had its fair share of legendary memories i.e. Triple H vs. The Rock in an Iron Man match, the Undertaker returning to wreak devastation on the McMahon-Helmsley Faction, JBL battling Eddie Guerrero for the WWE Championship, then battling John Cena a year later in the violent `I Quit' match etc. Are there any unforgettable moments here (like Backlash 2009) for the final Judgement Day to go out on? Not really, but it's still a very good show that features some quality wrestling. And with Chicago, Illinois (where the first Judgement Day was held) hosting venue for the last hurrah...there's certainly that special vibe about it.

CM Punk vs. Umaga
In his home town of Chicago, CM Punk locked horns with the late, great Umaga (before putting his MITB briefcase to legendary use against Jeff Hardy!) in this solid opener. A David-and-Goliath affair that although unspectacular, features some fine wrestling and strong performances from both men. Good bout indeed. (7/10)

ECW Championship Match
Christian (Champion) vs. Jack Swagger
A rematch from the previous month at Backlash. Admittedly, it's a step-down from that particular outing, but this match still features some great exchanges and excellent chemistry. Another terrific great go-around between the two. (8/10)

John Morrison vs. Shelton Benjamin
I had high-hopes for this one. Given how highly talented these accomplished veterans are, I thought they would tear the house down easily. But alas, it wasn't to be. Benjamin and Morrison failed to `click' together on this night, and you felt like John's singles-star was starting to rise, whereas poor Shelton's was about to fade into obscurity. Some hellacious spots here-and-there, but it's ultimately disjointed and doesn't really flow like it should. (6/10)

The Miz, Alfonso Soriano & Santino Marella
An absolutely FANTASTIC segment! The Miz cuts a dynamite heel promo on the fans, John Cena, Chicago, the baseball player & his fellow cubs. Santino also shows his formidable mic skills by exchanging some hilarious wit and insults with the Miz, ending in a brawl that will have the viewer hooked! Alfonso is a good sport throughout and Chavo Guerrero makes a good appearance at the end. Great stuff! (8/10)

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match
Rey Mysterio (Champion) vs. Chris Jericho
When Rey won the Intercontinental title at WrestleMania 25, and he was immediately thrown into a feud with Chris Jericho, you just knew the results would be spectacular. Easily one of the best feuds from 2009 and a fantastic rivalry which would help make Mysterio's IC title reign the stuff of legend. Simply a fantastic match-up that will have you absolutely hooked. A thrilling story from start-to-finish, which spawns sequels that are even better than THIS one! Match of the night. (9/10)

WWE Championship Match
Randy Orton (Champion) vs. Batista
The old Evolution teammates square-off in a heated bout that has all the history, animosity and fundamentals for a great championship match. To be honest, I was expecting something more intense and fast-paced, instead of a methodical clash between two polar-opposites. Still, Orton again shows his excellence as a wrestler and Dave's ferocity shines through. Another solid bout that's letdown by the cheap ending, but the aftermath with Legacy and the Nature Boy Ric Flair himself is AWESOME! WOOOOOOOOOO!!! (8/10)

John Cena vs. The Big Show
A grudge match that followed on from what the Big Show did to Cena at Backlash. I wasn't expecting much here, but it's actually rather decent. There're elements of Hogan vs. Andre here, with Show looking like a true dominant giant and Cena selling his injuries convincingly. Fine outing from both men. (6/10)

World Heavyweight Championship Match
Edge (Champion) vs. Jeff Hardy
After all their deep history together, how could one expect this main-event to be nothing less than excellent? After so many ladder/cage/tag bouts together, this straight-wrestling bout shows just how much Edge and Jeff Hardy have matured as competitors, story-tellers and main-eventers. For twenty-minutes, they give the fans a simply engaging match that doesn't disappoint. Maybe the `shock' interference near the end is unnecessary but nothing really dampens the overall result. (9/10)

As always, you can expect ONE special feature on this disc, but it's a good Home Video Exclusive that shows Batista reuniting with an old friend (guess who!) in a segment that's sure to bring genuine smiles to people's faces. All in all, Judgement Day 2009 is hardly a must-see show, but it's nonetheless a quality one. Recommended.

This review is from: WWE - Judgment Day 2009 [DVD] (DVD)
WWE JUDGEMENT DAY 2009 was filmed at the Allstate Arena in Rosemount, Illinois in Chicago on 17th May 2009.

The night began with CM Punk against the Samoan giant Umaga. Not a bad start to the evening with some impressive moves from both stars. 7/10.

Next Christian defended his ECW championship against Jack Swagger. This was not too bad but fairly forgettable and way too long for what it was. 5/10.

John Morrison took on Shelton Benjamin in a singles match. Some high-flying moves from both superstars made this a decent watch with a fantastic finish. 7/10.

Rey Mysterio faced Chris Jericho next in an Intercontinental competition. Very exciting from start to finish with some excellent reversals that you will only get from these two high performers. 8/10.

Next we saw the powerhouse Batista attempt to get his hands on Randy Orton's WWE Championship title. A good fight that kept me well entertained through the duration of the match, however the ending was a little predictable. 8/10.

John Cena took on nemesis The Big Show in a match where he was way below the level of fitness to fight due to injuries caused at BACKLASH. This had quite a slow start but had some truly anger-driven, bone-crunching manoeuvres that you'd expect from a grudge match as strong as this one. 8/10.

Finally, the World Heavyweight Championship was on the line when the champion Edge took on Jeff Hardy. Absolutely incredible from the open minutes. Some of the most career-risking moves were seen here and there was a very unexpected finale that wrapped the evening up nicely.

Overall this was a fairly action-packed evening with some very enjoyable matches. Nothing really too shocking or memorable happened though so if you did happen to miss this one there's not much in regards to storylines that you've missed out on. Definitely worth watching and one of the better PPVs so far in 2009.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow!, 29 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: WWE - Judgment Day 2009 [DVD] (DVD)
as a wrestling fan, it is hard to get bored of matches in a wrestling ring. this was judgement day 2009 and i thought that overall, it was good:

CM PUNK VS UMAGA 7/10 was a very good match with the advantage constantly changing between both superstars and at the end was a expected result but a good match overall, also as this was in punk's home city of chicago means that punk has the home advantage.

ECW CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
CHRISTIAN (CHAMPION) VS JACK SWAGGER 6/10 although this match was a rematch from backlash 2009, this match was a significant step down from that particular event however there were still a few good exchanges and counters however very predictable like many ECW matches

JOHN MORRISON VS SHELTON BENJAMIN (w/Charlie Haas) 8/10 my only issue with the DVD because this match was not mentioned on the back of the DVD but was a pleasant suprise because this match was a very good match with lots of counters and high-flying moves.

THE MIZ, SANTINO MARELLA AND ALFONSO SORIANO was hilarious as the miz came out to mock the chicago cubs and their captain Alfonso soriano but then came Santino with his mic skills which leads to a brawl which is quite good. Chavo then makes a appearence (very dissapointed with Chavo) 8/10

WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
CHRIS JERICHO VS REY MYSTERIO (CHAMPION) 9/10 very good match and argubly one of the best matches of 2009. a lot of high flying moves by both competitors and a well fought match that is worth watching

WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
BATISTA VS RANDY ORTON (CHAMPION) 8/10 a good match

John Cena vs. The Big Show
A grudge match that followed on from what the Big Show did to Cena at Backlash. I wasn't expecting much here, but it's actually rather decent. There're elements of Hogan vs. Andre here, with Show looking like a true dominant giant and Cena selling his injuries convincingly. Fine outing from both men. (6/10)

WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Edge (Champion) vs. Jeff Hardy
After all their deep history together, how could one expect this main-event to be nothing less than brilliant? After so many ladder/cage/tag bouts together, this straight-wrestling bout shows just how much Edge and Jeff Hardy have matured as competitors, story-tellers and main-eventers. For twenty-minutes, they give the fans a simply engaging match that doesn't disappoint. Maybe the `shock' interference near the end is unnecessary but nothing really dampens the overall result.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great WWE Judgment Day 2009 :), 10 July 2011

WWE Judgment Day 2009 Match Ratings:

1. CM Punk vs Umaga 4/5

Great one on one match up to get the pay-per-view off to a great start. I thought this match was going to a downer, but how wrong I was and both superstars had the right amount of domination in the match and in the end it was Umaga who delivered that vicious Samoan Spike for the victory over Punk.

2. Jack Swagger vs Christian (ECW Championship Match) 4/5

What can you say about this match, it was great and was even greater than the match that these two had at Backlash. Both Swagger and Christian gave a ***** performance and they both showed what the ECW Championship meant to them.

3. Shelton Benjamin vs John Morrison 4/5

Good little match with two of the best highflyers in the business and John Morrison does a great high flying rotational flip off the top rope onto Benjamin.

4. Rey Mysterio vs Chris Jericho (WWE Intercontinental Championship Match) 4/5

For me this was my match favourite as Chris Jericho had the opportunity at the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Both Mysterio and Jericho showed off their true talent in the ring and what the WWE Intercontinental Championship meant to both superstars.

5. Randy Orton vs Batista (WWE Championship Match) 4/5

I found this match rather enjoyable as it featured two of my favourite WWE superstars who were once part of a group called Evolution. Batista dominated the start of this match and then Orton had the opportunity to dominate Batista. The match itself was explosive and unfortunately it was Orton who got himself disqualified so that he could keep his WWE Championship. Though as Legacy were attacking Batista, we got a surprise of a legend making the come back e.g. Ric Flair to fight off Legacy.

6. Big Show vs John Cena 3/5

I have to admit a pretty decent match between the Big Show and John Cena, though Big Show did dominate at least a good 80% of this match with some hard shots and moves. But in the end it was Cena who managed to find a way of defeating the World's Largest Athlete :) for the victory.

7. Edge vs Jeff Hardy (World Heavyweight Championship Match) 4/5

Great match for the World Heavyweight Championship, which involves two superstars who know each other very well e.g. Jeff Hardy and Edge. It is a pretty much back and forth action match and as you can expect, some high flying moves performed by the one and only risk taker e.g. Jeff Hardy.

Overall this was a good pay-per-view for 2009 :) and I would recommend on getting it for the collection.

The event contained some real killer with edge vs jeff hardy and jericho vs rey rey,i have to say that swagger vs christian and shelton vs john morrison was a bit average while cena vs the big show was actually very good as was umaga vs cm punk where both men gave all they could.
Batista vs randy orton was a bit tepid where orton kept trying to lose the match which is a trait i dont like of our current wwe champion but thats the way he is behaving at the minute.
This is a pleasing event but it isnt perfect,not even close.
