Juventud© vs. Kid Kash (Cruiserweight Championship) – **3/4
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton (Hell in a Cell Match) – ****
Final Thoughts: I thought this PPV was better than what it looked like on paper. Mexicools/MNM wasn’t bad and they worked pretty well together. Benoit/Booker was really good and got a ton of time to work. Why was there another Bobby Lashley match on this show? I realize WWE wanted to put him over, but this was the 2nd straight PPV that Lashley in essence squashed. Kash/Juventud was good as well, although it was kind’ve slow up until the end. Of course, Orton/Taker stole the show and it’s one of my favorite HIAC matches of all-time. This match is arguably the best match in their whole feud. I usually don’t recommend shows that aren’t 7.5+, but you can find this show dirt cheap on Amazon and eBay so I would at least give it a look.
