Indeed they did. Really fed off each other nicely. Showed in the Hardy vs Nitro/Morrison matches too.
2009 ruled though. Some idiots only choose to remember Hornswoggle & Chavo crap + RAW celebrity GM nonsense, but on the other side of the coin you had Smackdown, ECW, & Superstars with quality bouts every week. RAW didn't shy away from some good bouts themselves that year. But, ECW & Smackdown. Holy crap they were great.
I agree on '09. Smackdown & ECW were great and TED & CODY were getting time on Raw. Shame that didn't pan out for Ted (shut up McQueen & Cal
). 2008 is a really underrated year too, imo. Really solid Edge/Taker feud, ECW had Henry/Hardy going, Jeff/Trips awesome feud, Cena/Batista, PUNK and a great WM and build to it. And let's not forget Batista/HBK.
You both are justified in your viewpoints I can't argue that. I don't know I thought the Rumble match with MNM was very well done but I just vastly preferred their DTD match, the Rumble match felt rushed. The Hardys vs. Cade & Murdoch at Judgment Day was alright I just couldn't get into it and it was really a step down from their Backlash match. The Night of Champions match was more the same as their Judgment Day match really. Still a solid line up of PPV matches that delivered.
I really liked the D2D match. It's a little fuzzy because of the abomination that was the rest of that show, though.
