Chris Benoit vs. Randy Orton - January 13th, 2006
This was the seventh and final match in the United States Championship Series between Chris Benoit and Booker T, although Randy Orton became Booker T's substitute after Armageddon because of Booker's injury. As soon as I finished watching the match, the first thing that came to mind was that this was one of best TV matches that I've watched in quite a long time. Both Benoit and Orton worked hard in this match and they had nearly twenty minutes to showcase what they're capable of. Neither man had control for a long time in this match, which is a nice change of pace when it comes to most WWE matches where the heel has a long control stretch that sometimes become boring. My only real complaint about this match was the finish, although I loved Orton's shocked expression when Nick Patrick's hand slapped the mat for the third time. This is easily one of the best matches of Randy Orton's career and probably will end up being one of the best matches on Friday Night Smackdown in the year 2006.

20 Man Battle Royal for the World Heavyweight Championship - January 13th, 2006
I don't remember enjoying a TV Battle Royal as much as I enjoyed this Battle Royal here. Mark Henry was a beast in this match, as he just dominated the vast majority of the match and even made powerhouses like the BATHTURD (Lashley for those who aren't in the know~!) look like complete GEEKS in comparison to him. Henry also press-slammed Angle through the announce table during the match, which took Angle out of the match until the very end. The confrontation between Henry and Mysterio was well-done and entertaining. Mysterio is just so awesome when it comes to facing larger guys. The final showdown between Angle and Henry was fine, although the Mysterio/Henry showdown was much better and entertaining. It's a damn shame they didn't put the belt on MIZARK here, though.

Kid Kash vs. Juvi - January 6th, 2006
YEAH1993 was right when he said that this was a pretty damn good match. It went on for about six minutes but it felt like three, as it just flew by due to how entertaining it was. The story of the match was Juvi's knee, which he injured on his flip to the outside of the ring onto Kid Kash. This was better than what I remembered most Cruserweight matches being in the WWE (although I don't remember much from this time period so take that last comment with a grain of salt). Mr. Kennedy~! was on commentary as well for this match and he wasn't totally awful, which is a plus as well, I guess. This is a fine little match here.

Rey/Orton from SD 4/7/06 holds a special place in my heart, my first and so far only TV taping.

Finlay vs. Matt Hardy - January 20th, 2006
This match marks the debut of the man who plays a central role in the greatness that is allegedly Smackdown in 2006. This match was more of a fight than an actual wrestling match and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. Finlay's offense was something that most haven't seen in the WWE, especially when Finlay caught Matt Hardy in between the ring apron and ring and he proceeded to beat the hell out of him. This was a very effective debut for Finlay, as it immediately established him as someone who (obviously) loves to fight (and not because he mentions it in his theme song) and someone who only wants to hurt his opponent. This is going to awesome.

Mark Henry vs. Rey Mysterio - January 20th, 2006
Mysterio starts off the match by using his speed in an attempt to wear down Henry and it seems to work at first, as Mysterio has Henry on the ropes as the match went to a commercial break. The entire match between these two was pretty good, as Henry was awesome yet again as a big man such as when he killed Mysterio with what looked to be a clothesline. Every chance Rey got he went on the attack to the legs of Mark Henry and that strategy finally succeeded, as he got Henry down to the point where he hit three straight 619s on the MIZARK~! The finish to this match is awesome as well, where Henry just sits up to kick out of the frog splash, rolls over, stands up, and then plants Mysterio with the World's Strongest Slam.

Randy Orton vs. Orlando Jordan - January 20th, 2006
I know a near ten minute match between Randy Orton and Orlando Jordan doesn't sound too appealing and trust me, I didn't want to watch it either. However, Choke2Death mentioned something about this match a couple of posts back and how Orton carried Orlando Jordan to a decent match so I decided to watch it. Now, this match wasn't good by any stretch, but it was much better than it ever had business of being, especially with it clocking in at nearly ten minutes. The fact that this match didn't put me to sleep, especially at nearly 11:30 PM, is an added bonus. Orton "snaps" during the match when Jordan gets his foot on the rope to break up a pinfall and Orton's aggressiveness nearly costs him the match. This match is worth a watch if you ever need proof of Orlando Jordan having a 10+ minute singles match that didn't completely suck. I might include this on the comp just because of how shocked I was that it wasn't awful.

The Henry-Mysterio match when Mysterio is champ is pretty awesome IIRC, or is it the one that you just mentioned ? DAMN, I can't fucking remember.

All I know is that Taker-Angle from Smackdown that year is probably the best Television match from that point up until....... Well, there hasn't been a better one since... MAYBE Punk-Hardy in the cage is just as good.

I think I know what match you're referring too. I don't remember the exact month of when it took place (I want to say sometime in June but I'm not sure). I remember enjoying it as a kid though so I can't wait to get to that match.

The one I just watched/reviewed took place about nine days before the Royal Rumble and the match determined who was going to to be the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship.

That match was in the build up to Mysterio-JBL @ Judgment Day 06, where JBL would basically get a different monster every week to come destroy Rey so that he would be depleted going into their title match (first HENRY which was awesome, than KHALI which Mysterio made decent, and finally Kane on MAY NINETEENTH, and anybody who was watching around that time knows exactly how insane that was).

I love JBL and Mysterio's chemistry. Huge fan of the No Mercy 2005 match and a HUGEEEE fan of their Judgment Day 2006 match, they just worked so splendidly together for some reason, one of Layfield's best opponents. FUCK I love JBL at times.

JBL was one of those workers who, if he had the right opponent, could end up producing a damn good match. JBL is personally my favorite wrestler of all time because A) He was my first real favorite wrestler as a child and B) his promos were top notch. It's a damn shame that they started his singles push so late into his career. The JBL character was fantastic once it started, though.

Hated JBL as a mark back in 2004/2005 but as I got older I started really loving his work and how he would just incite a crowd like no other, the guy is just a naturally great character worker in the JBL persona.

His first two years had some really awesome stuff like the OMFGEPIC JD match with Eddie and subsequent rematches, his matches with Rey, Taker, Booker, Show (such an underrated match, an all time great cage match), Cena @ JD, No Holds Barred w/ Batista (another underrated encounter), Matt Hardy (enjoyed the Armageddon match), and the like. FUCK THE WWE AND MAKING HIM JOB TO THE BOOGEYMAN, UGH.

He should have gotten another world title reign sometime between 2008-2009 though, even if he was just a transitional champion, guy deserved to go out with a little better than an IC title match. HOW he went out though was perfect.

Then they decide to ruin their WM25 match by giving it such a short timeframe, It could have made the car wreck of WM25 (excluding the Taker/HBK match) not seem as bad.

I don't care HOW bad Wrestlemania XXV may be. There is no fucking chance in hell that it will be close to this piece of dogshit called Wrestlemania XV that I'm watching now. Five matches in and I haven't seen a match reach two stars yet, what a horrible, horrible show honestly. I'm optimistic about Rock-Austin, but I still have Sable-Tori and Taker-Boss Man in the cell to watch, OH WHAT JOY.

Wrestlemania XXV had Jericho-Legends , Edge-Show-Cena , Money in the Bank , and obviously HBK-Taker, that alone should put it over this horrendous show so far. Who knows though, perhaps when I rewatch I'll give everything on XXV a DUD, stranger things have happened so far in this Wrestlemania project.
