Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Battle Royal - ★★
- For the final spot in the MITB match, here's a battle royal to decide it. Finlay and Matt Hardy are already in from the Smackdown side of things. This battle royal is pretty boring, though. Consisting pretty much exclusively of midcarders and jobbers. Lashley beats MNM to win his spot in MITB.
Finlay vs Rey Mysterio - ★★★¼
- Not quite as good as it could have been. A bit slower than I would've hoped for but still good work by both men. They get 16 minutes to go and the finish comes from Orton doing one of the best run-ins ever. Finlay distracts the ref which results in Orton running into the ring, catching Mysterio mid-air for an RKO and then walking to the back without a single fuck given.
Chris Benoit vs William Regal - ★★½
- Would have been good but in 4 minutes, they can only do so much. Just what you expect with a lot of stiffness and mat wrestling. As always, Benoit wins instantly with the Crossface.
Mark Henry vs Kurt Angle - ★¾
- Mark Henry is such a waste of space at this part of Smackdown. Some of the best members of the roster in Angle and Taker are constantly occupied with him when they could've spent those PPV matches/feuds with better members of the roster. As for the match, it's boring, slow and resthold heavy. Orton once again does a run in and costs Angle the match.
Now it's bed time!
