On paper, Judgment Day 2006 looked... meh. Watched it and found it to go beyond my expectations. Majority of the matches on the card were unpredictable, surprising, crowd pleasing and fun. Highly recommend it.

And yeah, Benoit vs. Finlay was a top-notch.

Funny you bring that Orton suspension up, because I've been wondering what program they had in store for him. Shame his SmackDown contract expired after that, enjoyed him the most there...

Talk about intense, stiff matches this one deserves recognition for being both. There was some great psychology on the use of the chain and a weapon and for certain spots as a partner. One such instance is the good spot where Piper used the chain to tie Valentine into the corner. These two went all out.


The story-line going into the match was Piper returning from an ear injury caused by Valentine in a previous match. Valentine attacked the ear with the chain and the ring post, Piper sold being imbalanced pretty well and the blood near the ear really gave the feeling that Piper is legitimately on the verge of defeat.


A lot of back and forth with Valentine's methodical and stiff offense, more wrestling based with knee drops, suplexes etc against the more brawling style of Piper with a lot of punches, but the story isn't furthered much by his offense but more by his ability to continue fighting through the assault on his ear.


I didn't really care for the finish however. It lacked proper excitement and seemed anti-climatic for a match with so much going on and a title on the line but a good, fun match.
****1/2.

It's pretty damn iconic, imo.

Looked like he was going to work with Kurt Angle. That's what he did when he returned even after the separation by the draft (thank God!) and that's how he was written off after WM22. Or maybe he was going to further wrestle Rey Mysterio in a one-on-one program since that's the match they had right after WM22.

Makes me laugh that his suspension was two months because of his behavior. Damn, what an asshole he must have been backstage to get suspended. Funny thing is, most reports say that he's very mellow now. All that weed and the stop of steroid and painkiller abuse must have relaxed him heavily!

True true true, all very true.

And hot damn, I miss his "Legend Killer" run. My favorite arrogant, cocky heel character ever. Would've loved to see that Orton in a "Legend vs. Legend Killer" program with Rocky, that feud would've worked in so many ways imaginable.

Orton vs. Austin would have been great as well.

ORTON

Breaks my heart knowing he's a piece of trash who isn't worth the time of day to watch nowadays. From 2004 - 2011 he was my hero. I miss the Age of Orton days.

Wasn't much of a fan post-Summerslam 04.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I loved face Randall as a young lad. His awful over-excited face reactions smiling and blowing kisses. Have you seen his entrance at Survivor Series '04? Flailing away for the dames. It's quite the sight.

You mean the twirling around in circles like a chicken with its head cut off while doing his pose and smiling like a goofy 12-year-old?
