This review is from: WWE - Unforgiven 2007 [DVD] (DVD)
September 2007 and unforgiven was given a real hype boast with the return of the undertaker after a four month hiatus,the event was actually alot better than anticipated and despite having the official theme tune played by alterbridge there wasnt too many negatives.
The event opened well with the ECW championship,the holder cm punk went up against elijah burke in a fast paced aggressive enough match,like i said this was a good opener and cm punk put on a great performance although i feel he carried burke at times who for one reason or another wasnt quite at the races on this night.
Next up was the tag team championship,the unlikely tag team champs were MVP and matt hardy and they went up against deuce and domino,this again was good,the tension between hardy and MVP was at times more interesting than the match but that being said some great moves were performed and the ending was grand with me.
Onwards we go then with a no disqualification match with a difference,triple h (who could be disqualified) went up against carlito,who couldnt,so what we got here was a match where carlito could do what he wanted against a man who couldnt and it was entertaining,not as violent as it could have been but fun all the same,carlito hammed it up as the villain that likes to be cool and triple h had to take it with a smile at times but the ending was great and this was certainly one of the most entertaining matches of the night.
The ladies title followed and was between the champ candice michelle and the lovely beth phoenix,beth was all over candice here in a match that was ok in truth,a very one sided affair with a safe ending in truth but this is a womans match i could watch again and its seldom that i say that hey.
Next up was a triple threat match for the world heavyweight championship,the holder,the great khali went up against rey mysterio and batista in a match that was solid enough but neither man overly impressed and the finisher move that won it wasnt the best but we were treated to a match with both pace and rugged strength so the best of both worlds then.
The world tag team championship match was up next and lance murdoch and trevor murdoch,the champs,went up against paul london and brian kendrick,this was a very good match,very good indeed,both teams impressed,different types of team here,but together they put on a good show,i cant fault this in truth.
The next match certainly came with faults and was certainly used to fuel the war that lay ahead for both men,randy orton,the champ,against a very angry john cena who was coose that his dad was kicked in the loaf by orton,this match lasted 7 minutes and was savage enough with cena failing to hold it together and too much attention being given to cenas father,not great but they would head into many a fight after this that was a large improvement but that wouldnt be hard.
Next up was a match that was hyped but not quite justified,the match between the undertaker and mark henry was ok here,a marked improvement on their judgement day 2007 match for sure,it was physical enough and there was some skill shown but henry isnt great to watch at times but taker helped him at times,the finisher was great and with that this feud kinda fizzled out and that was a wise choice,speaking of which obtaining this is also a wise choice,3.5 out of 5.
