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.
