I'll be the first to admit that I'm a very...um...I don't want to say "harsh" critic, but I set the bar pretty high for myself. As a wrestling fan, I've only given a couple of matches *****, and I'm usually pretty sparing with the **** stars and anything in between. Christian/Joe was a good match, I guess my biggest complaints are that I'm not a fan of the Jarrett brawling, which Joe and Christian did not really need to do (they have the talent to have an actual match), and I'm also not a huge fan of Christian as a main-eventer. I know it creates the question of "how does that affect the match," but there's something about the "feel" between Joe vs. Christian, and say, Brock Lesnar vs. Eddie Guerrero, which is what this match came close to reminding me of.
