Re: WWE 2002: Ruthless Aggression
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
