4.0 out of 5 stars WWE Judgement Day 2007, 12 Sep 2007
By 
This review is from: Judgement Day 2007 [DVD] (DVD)
Judgement Day 2007 was a PPV that was dominated by storyline development rather than wrestling, but still managed to become an enjoyable event.
The opening match was a grudge match between Ric Flair and Carlito, and after a sloppy start the match gains momentum and reaches a fine ending. Not as good as their Unforgiven 2005 match, but still a solid opener.
The second match is a re-match from Backlash as Bobby Lashley takes on the McMahons and Umaga in a handicap match. This is what i mean by Judgement Day being an event dominated by storylines rather than wrestling. The match barely lasts a minute, and was designed to keep the story going, nothing more. Still, fine for what it was.
Match 3 is CM Punk vs Elijah Burke. Quite a slow buildup, but if you enjoy old fashioned wrestling storytelling than this is a reasonable match.
The Randy Orton/Shawn Michaels match only happens to re-establish Orton as the legend killer, and give Shawn Michaels an excuse to be off television for a while. Despite being short, it is actually quite entertaining, as the story is well told and Randy Orton is great as the sadistic legend killer.
The Hardys against Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch is match of the night. The only wrestling match on the show that is compelling because of wrestling, this is easily superior to their Backlash match, and the crowd are into the action. Great tag team wrestling.
Batista vs. Edge was a last minute addition to make up for the injury of The Undertaker. Slow, but watchable, this match has a nice ending that makes up for the slow pace.
Chris Benoit has his final PPV match against MVP in a two out of three falls. Their first two PPV matches were easily forgotten, and this is worse. Slow and boring, it is a shame to see Benoit go out this way.
The final match is the WWE championship match between John Cena and The Great Khali. With the help of Cena and a very enthusiastic crowd, Khali has the first good match of his career. Short but very energetic, a great main event.
On the whole this is a very entertaining show. Well worth a look for any WWE fan.
