WWE SummerSlam ’05 Review

Overall: 6.75/10

Orlando Jordan© vs. Chris Benoit (United States Championship) – N/A

Edge vs. Matt Hardy – *1/4

Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio (Ladder Match for the custody of Dominick) – ****1/4

Kurt Angle vs. Eugene (Kurt’s Olympic Gold Medal on the line) – *1/4

The Undertaker vs. Randy Orton – ***1/2

John Cena© vs. Chris Jericho (WWE Championship) – ***

Batista© vs. JBL (No Holds Barred Match for the World Heavyweight Championship) – **1/4

Hulk Hogan vs. Shawn Michaels – ***

Final Thoughts: This PPV was incredibly disappointing and the worst PPV up to this point in 2005. It sucks too because just by looking at this card on paper, it had a ton of potential. Benoit beat Jordan for US Title in less than 30 seconds, Edge/Hardy didn’t even get 5 minutes of match time, & Angle/Eugene never should’ve been a feud let alone on the card. The 2 World Title matches disappointed & HBK hurt his match by over-selling ALL of Hogan’s moves (find out why by watching My Journey.) The only bright spots in this PPV was the epic Ladder Match between Eddie & Rey and the Taker/Orton match. I would just recommend watching those 2 matches instead of sitting through this horribly booked show.
