WWE Judgment Day ’09 Review

Overall: 7.25/10

CM Punk vs. Umaga – **3/4

Christian(c) vs. Jack Swagger (ECW Championship) – **3/4

John Morrison vs. Shelton Benjamin – ***

Rey Mysterio(c) vs. Chris Jericho (Intercontinental Championship) – ***1/4

Randy Orton(c) vs. Batisa (WWE Championship) – **1/2

John Cena vs. Big Show – **1/4

Edge(c) vs. Jeff Hardy (World Heavyweight Championship) – ***1/2

Final Thoughts: Decent show here. Opener was Umaga/Punk which was surprisingly borderline good. Umaga didn’t get enough credit for being a very agile worker and one of the better big man wrestlers. Christian/Swagger was similar to the opener quality wise. Their match at Backlash was way better though. Morrison/Benjamin was good. On paper it looked better but still, a good match to keep up the pace of the show. The Intercontinental Championship match between Mysterio & Jericho was pretty good, though I think it’s overrated. Randy Orton vs. Batista for the strap was hugely disappointing. Got a lot of time, but just didn’t deliver. Same thing goes for Cena/Show even though I didn’t expect much from this match. Horrible match considering the huge storyline that occurred @ Backlash between the two. The MOTN was the main event between Jeff Hardy & Edge for the WHC. The finish was weak, but nonetheless a very good match. Overall, the matches that should’ve delivered didn’t and the ones that no one expected much from were good. Just watch the IC & WHC title matches.
