WWE Unforgiven, No Mercy, & Survivor Series(?) ’05 Reviews
I reviewed this show in this video:
Legion of Doom (Animal & Heidenreich) & Christy Hemme vs. MNM (Six Person Intergender Tag Team Match) – *1/2
Bobby Lashley vs. Simon Dean – DUD
Chris Benoit© vs. Booker T vs. Christian vs. Orlando Jordan – **1/2
Hardcore Holly vs. Mr. Kennedy – **1/4
Rey Mysterio vs. JBL – ***1/4
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton & “Cowboy” Bob Orton (Handicap Casket Match) – ***1/4
Nunzio© vs. Juventud (Cruiserweight Championship) – **1/4
Batista vs. Eddie Guerrero (World Heavyweight Championship) – ***1/2
Final Thoughts: This PPV was a huge disappointment. Most of these matches had the potential to be very good-great but turned out to be mediocre-good (Mysterio/JBL, US Title Match, Casket Match, & main event.) The under-card was extremely mediocre. You couldn’t have had Lashley squash Simon Dean on Smackdown? You had to put Hardcore/Kennedy on this PPV with 2 weeks (if that) worth of buildup? This show was the epitome of why I highly disagree with bringing back brand exclusive PPVs. Don’t get me wrong, there were some good matches; it’s just that this card on paper looked like an awesome, must-see show. Sadly, this was Eddie Guerrero’s last PPV and even more sadder than that is the fact that this PPV is remembered more for that reason. Definitely skip this show. Don’t recommend it at all.
I previously watched & reviewed this show on my DownSince98 account but I have since deleted that channel. I’m not gonna re-watch it and re-review it but I will say that this Survivor Series sucked balls lmao.
