Top critical review
poor pay per view
on 6 May 2008
Bad blood 1997 was very good,bad blood 2003 and 2004 were average and this was the worst of all if you must ask me which is the worst,if you must.
The event started with a poor match,the tag team of rodney mack and chrisnowski,two men who were pretty green as single wrestlers and even greener as a tag team went up against the dudley boyz who were having a little row or two going into this match,this wasnt a good match and was designed to give the rookies a tag team push which didnt really take off,but as i said,this wasnt that great,no chemistry or desire and the crowd fell down with them.
Scott steiner went up against test now in a match where the winner got stacey keibler as manager,you know when you can tell a match can be mad,well i knew this would and it was,it was rotten to the core,so bad i called for mercy,i wanted it over,thankfully someone heard my pleas and it ended quickly enough.
A pretty poor intercontiental match followed,the champ christian going up against booker T,this match was only designed to add fuel to their feud and in no way to resolve it,neither man did themselves credit here in a numbing match that shamed both men who are so much better than this.
The world tag team championship was defended next as the champs kane and rvd went up against la resistance in a match that was pretty good,wwe folklore will not look kindly upon la resistance but they played their part here in a good contest.
Next up was a very good match with hype dating back to their wcw days,goldberg going up againt chris jericho,i found this a great contest and a hype that was mainly matched,good and solid and pleasing.
Next up was ric flair against shawn michaels,this was an excellent match with a superb ending,toe to toe wrestling with a good pace and in ring chemistry,very good indeed.
Ah yes,i forgot the red neck triathlon between austin and bischoff was a farce and in bad taste and a real time killer,i didnt go for it so i will say no more.
The main event followed,hell in a cell,triple h against kevin nash,i think this match as much as anything showcased what many have said,that kevin nash was lucky to be a wwe champion years ago and to carry the company on his shoulders,his time with wcw in nwo was a success but thats because of their attitude,as a wrestler there isnt much to him and here in a cell triple h had to help him along,blood flowed and the contest wasnt bad but it wasnt without faults,far from it,a solid enough ending to a primarily average match,a poor enough event,two stars.
