This was my first time reading through your BTB, and I really liked what I saw.

I've just read Judgment Day and I really enjoyed it, here's a review friend.

I really liked your opening contest, I can't seem to find Kane & Jeff Hardy as being tag team compatible, but, on the other hand, I'm loving that Kama, the Supreme Fighthing Machine is back and teaming with D-Von! The spot of the match was Hardy's missed Swanton and Kane picked up the win for his team, good opening contest to start off JD.

The European Title match was a nice filler, I was looking forward to DDP winning the belt back but Regal pulled out a cheap trick to walk away with the belt while getting DQ'ed. I hope DDP will get his rematch soon.

Taker Vs Edge was nothing special to me. I see a lot of threads using Edge and giving him huge pushes but, it's hard to replicate what made Edge so legendary just by putting him in matches with the Undertaker. At the very least, Taker won the contest.

I really enjoyed the Hardcore 3-Way. Buh Buh as Champion is great, I guess things will pick up on the Hardcore side now that Buh Buh is Champion. I really liked the ending with that sucession of events. Great stuff!

MOTN belongs to RVD Vs Hardy. A great lenghty IC title match, filled with a great series of maneuvers, counters, and high risk offense. Kudos. I'm guessing these two will continue feuding with just how the post match ended. I don't know if I like Hardy as a serious heel but, we'll see as time rolls on.

This is the match I really hated. First it was way too long for what it was, and, I felt the talents of Jericho & Angle were completely wasted on two unathletic individuals such as Big Show & especially Hogan. I'll give Show credit where credit is due, but, Hogan would be best served tag teaming on the midcard level or having singles matches on PPV's only.

Austin Vs Hall was a good brawl like these can have on any given night. The Baseball Bat at the end really gave this match a nice twist. I'm sure these two will tear it up with the stakes raised just a little bit higher.

Nash Vs HHH was a lenghty and painful contest. I liked that they took to the crowd, the backstage area and the likes. It really favored Nash's slow and methodic style. HBK getting involved added another layer to this contest and I really liked how Nash came about winning this fight. Nicely done.

Rock Vs Flair was pretty darn great. Great spots throughout, we could actually feel the energy they brought to the crowd with how they were back and forth throughout. I'm sure Naitch will get another shot soon.

Overall it was a good Pay-Per-View, a few filler matches here and there, but mostly, great quality matches. 7/10

A very good PPV overall. I really like your match writing. All the matches were solid action. Random thoughts:

- Using PPV time to set up matches for upcoming TV shows seems weird to me. I don't know if WWE ever does this. I don't think so. It's a small thing but it bothered me. PPV segments should be used to hype the matches on the card. But again, it's not that big of a deal...

- Edge vs Taker was exactly what it was supposed to be. The young Edge puts up a good fight but in the end the veteran Undertaker beats him cleanly. Good stuff.

- I didn't really like the DQ finishes. One is enough, two is too much in my opinion. DQs and Count outs on PPV are always something you should avoid. I know it makes sense story-wise and it's an easy way to continue the feud but it takes away from the match. It wouldn't have made a big difference if Regal had just used the brass knucks to get the pin. It also seems that the rivalry between Austin and Hall is going to continue. This just seemed like a cheap way to continue their feud.

- RVD vs Hardy was an another good match. At least Matt is benefitting from the Hardy's break up. The heel turn was pretty random at first. Was Matt just frustrated because he couldn't win or did show signs of this before? I need to go back and read previous episodes again because I have no idea.

- The main events were really good. HHH vs Nash was brutal and I liked the finish with Shawn running in. Perhaps this was even too brutal considering they've been feuding for, what, a month now? Nash winning suggests this is going to continue like I hoped. But they already had a brutal street fight so what's next? Hell in a Cell?

- Rock vs Flair I really enjoyed too. Great story and a wonderful match overall.
