John Cena vs Edge (Raw 30/1/2006) - ★★★¼
- A fun rematch from the Royal Rumble and also a lot better. They speed up the ring action a bit and it's also less 'routine like' with Cena never fully resorting to the 5 moves of doom completely. Gets just enough time although a couple more minutes wouldn't have hurt. I am very confused by the finish, though. Lita hits Edge with the belt and Edge wins the match as result of a disqualification but obviously not the belt. Yet, Jerry Lawler is there questioning the decision even though the person who gets hit with an illegal object is always the one who wins by DQ in such situations.
Triple H vs Chavo Guerrero (Raw 30/1/2006) - ★★¼
- Not a bad match but rather dull and lengthy. Their chemistry is not exactly the best and there's too much Eddie sucking up for me to fully get into it. Chuckled at Hunter mocking Eddie's little dance, though. AND he got cheered for it, then he looked up to the sky in "questionable" ways and finally got the crowd to turn on him.
Undertaker vs Hulk Hogan (Judgment Day 2002) - ★★★
- Good match for Hogan's standards in 2002 and Undertaker does a very good job. Hogan sticks to his traditional punches and occasional chops plus the hulking up but otherwise, it's Undertaker who carries the match for the most part. It's also kept short and sweet at about 12-14 minutes (if you count the whipping in the beginning). Hogan should've done the clean job, though. His ego and absolute refusal to lose is very annoying to watch nowadays. But still a joy to see Undertaker get the belt and I lol'd at the chair guillotine Taker gives Hogan post-match.
