This review is from: WWE - Unforgiven 2006 [DVD] (DVD)
I found unforgiven 2006 to be a very good event,a great card and the matches worked out as they should,there was quality and some stunning moves and little in the way of filler so all good then,well maybe not all.
The intercontiental match was up first as the champ johnny nitro went up against jeff hardy who wasnt long back from his TNA stint,this match was pretty good,lasted a little too long so the high risk and high energy couldnt last forver but i found this to be a good opening and the signs are usually good when the opening match is for a title.
Kane and umaga were up next,this match was gonna be a braw with slaps being exchanged like presents at christmas and it was just that but there was more than that when i revisit it in my mind,this match wasnt that bad in truth is my final conclusion.
The world tag team championship was up next as two members of the spirit squad went up against the highlanders who put in a good shift and avoided their annoying trait of acting like dogs and scratching themselves and just got on with their big chance,this match was solid enough,lots of cheating by the spirit squad and suchlike but this wasnt filler by any means and i was impressed with the highlanders at times but as a whole i find them slighly bushwacker like and that is never gonna be a good thing.
Ac/dc once sang if you want blood (you got it) well that works with the next match,a hell in a cell handicap match where DX went up against shane and vince mcmahon and the big show.
This match did seem to last a hour when it didnt but there was plenty going on here,some comical moments and some savage beatings,out of the five men only one doesnt bleed like a stuck pig,shawn michaels and triple h worked so hard here and battled like tigers,their rivals beat them up like dogs and carnage followed,there was the odd botched move,such as a flying knee that triple h did to vince that missed by a country mile and yet they sold it which was a bit humilating but aside from that you will be hard pressed to find a more brutal ending,good match.
The womans title was up for grabs next and this is also notable for being the last match of trish stratus,she went up against the champ lita in a fairly good match,when i think back trish and lita were the only two ladies in past few years that looked capable in the ring on a consistent enough basis,this match was good enough then.
Randy orton fought carlito next,essentially this was two heels at war but the crowd came alive all the same,the finisher was superb and all in all this was a very good match,hard to fault.
The main event was next and was for the WWE championship,the champ edge went up against john cena,if cena lost he had to sign a three year deal with smackdown,in a tables,ladders and chairs match,this match was stunning,i adored it,so much happened and so many fine moves and momentum changing hands and ,i could go on,but i will end this quick by saying that unforgiven 2006 is a real clinker ,check it out.
