Yeah, I figured as much. With matches like MNM/Londrick, Finlay/Benoit, and JBL/Mysterio, I assumed it was at least a "good" show. I'm especially looking forward to the tag team title match, as I've enjoyed the two matches MNM and London & Kendrick have had on Smackdown so far, especially their match on the Smackdown after Wrestlemania (*** in my book).

Elimination Chamber could either be really good or really shit. The only match that I feel 100% comfortable in being good would be the Smackdown Elimination Chamber. It's a damn shame that Rey Mysterio had to be replaced but Kane is fine. Big Show/ADR might end up being good but I don't think I'll enjoy it as much as I did their two Last Man Standing matches (have both at ***-***1/4 I think). SHIELD/Cena & Friends could be good as well but it wouldn't shock me if they have the SHIELD get squashed, only to get their heat back tomorrow night. They really should have made it an Elimination Chamber match and give it some sort of a War Games match feel but w/e.

I don't have much faith in Punk/Rock to deliver. Their match at the Rumble was p. bad even before the terrible restart. Hopefully they allow them to do a bit more but I don't have much faith in Rock to deliver a ***+ match. Punk might win the belt back though if Undertaker doesn't do Wrestlemania and we get Punk/Cena/DWAYNE for the WWE Title at Wrestlemania, which would be much better than Cena/Dwayne II.

Some JD 06 thoughts (can't seem to find my write up of Undertaker/Khali or Rey/JBL though... huh)

MNM Vs Brian Kendrick & Paul London - WWE Tag Team Titles May 21st - Judgment Day 2006

This match has been building and building on SD for the last month or so, and its about time they had the big pay off match!

MNM are pretty awesome in this for the very beginning, when Nitro knocks down London, then poses as Mercury takes pictures of him with an invisible camera . He then goes back to the match, where London gets a nice "you look like a moron" spot as revenge.

The high flying offence of Londrick help them in the early going, but a missed cross body from the ropes allows MNM to do what they do best; control the fucking match. I liked MNM back in 06 when I first watched all of this, but I never loved them like I am now lol. Just another of the billion things I never truly appreciated at the time .

Nice control segment from MNM as they beat down... whoever (I forget lol). As usual, they create openings for Melina to get involved too, which I always like. We get a great false finish when they manage to hit the Snap Shot on Kendrick, but London just manages to break it up and prevent me from being disappointed with how short the match was.

Great little callback spot to their matches building up to this, as Kendrick manages to roll up Nitro, a move that got multiple wins over MNM in the previous weeks. Unfortunately for Kendrick though, Joey distracts the referee and this one is far from over still.

Nitro continues to impress me as a worker and a heel with just about everything he does, particularly when he goes for a cocky cover on Brian, who kicks out, which just pisses Nitro off so he punches him in the face repeatedly .

This is just a real nice Southern Tag match between 4 great workers, a couple of real nice false finishes, good FIP segments, nice builds to the hot tag, and some heel awesomeness from MNM.

Perhaps the best part of this match is one of the false finishes towards the end, where London dropkicks Nitro who is on the apron, and turns the dropkick into a standing moonsault! But wait, it gets better... with Nitro down and unable to break up the count, Melina jumps in the ring and just SCREAMS in the ref's face!

The finish is great too, with a roll up pin which is again a great call back spot from their previous matches, and we have new champions!!!

Totally fucking loved this match. It got around 15 minutes, and every second of it was at least good. Another match I could totally find a place for lol.

Aftermath is both good and bad, good because its done well, and bad because, well, its the break up of MNM.

Rating: ***3/4


Finlay Vs Chris Benoit - Judgment Day May 21st 2006

Talked about this before, and I already know its gonna be high on my list, but hey, I'm not passing up the chance to see it again, and I figure I should at least do a review for it too.

This one starts off with perhaps the best collar and elbow tie up ever, which takes them to the outside, where they still refuse to let go lol. Then we get the big stare down where Benoit headbutts Finlay, stares some more, then hits a double leg and goes for the Sharpshooter!

And so begins the awesome mat work that is unparalleled by anything I have seen in WWE not including one of these 2 men.

Finlay fakes an eye injury to gain control of the match, where he levels Benoit with an elbow to the face, and then takes it to the mat again. At one point he starts to slap Benoit in the face, which pisses Benoit off so much he slaps the Irish out of Finlay.

Offence from both men is as manly and gritty and stuff as you would imagine, as everything looks like it legit hurts, and it wouldn't surprise me if it really did lol. The submission hold Finlay has at one point is super awesome, when he pulls on both of Benoit's arms, and pushes his head down with his boot.

Out come the German's as per usual in a Benoit match, and Finlay tries to escape like their match from a couple of weeks ago, only this time he tries to poke Benoit's eye out instead of elbowing his face. Neither worked though lol .

As with all of their matches, its so back and forth all the way through, as they take turns to beat the fuck out of each other in as painful ways as possible.

Finlay smartly targets the neck for the majority of the match, and really steps up his neck offence once Benoit misses a diving headbutt. Love the little touches from Finlay too, which no doubt Andy cums over ( :cal: ), such as Finlay locking in a hammerlock while applying a reverse chin lock.

at Michael Cole (don't need a reason to, but hell, I'll explain) when he mentions that every part of Finlay's body is a weapon... INCLUDING his Shillelagh . Now... was he making a penis joke there... or just being retarded? Yeah, he was being retarded.

MOAR German's come out later in the match, and this time a combination of elbows and headbutts finally prevent Finlay from taking a third one... but Benoit gets his revenge by hitting the third German... on the outside! Nice payback spot.

Despite having seen this match numerous times already lol, I honestly thought the finish was about to happen then and there, but nope... Finlay is back up and sends Benoit flying through the ropes to the outside.

Oh, wait, looks like the end is near . When Benoit gets back in the ring, the Crossface comes out and Finlay taps. BUT, the Crossface isn't locked in straight away, as in typical Finlay/Benoit fashion, Benoit has to fight to lock in the hold as Finlay does everything he can to avoid it.

Tremendous, fantastic, fucking incredible match. Same rating for it as before, but I probably enjoyed it a little more this time around. Still slightly better than their match on SD a few weeks before.

Rating: ****1/4

Were JBL/Mysterio and Khali/Taker decent at least? I can imagine JBL/Mysterio being pretty entertaining but seeing as this was JBL's second to last match because of his back(?) injury, it might not have been as good as it could have been.

I can't imagine Khali/Taker being decent, though.

JBL/Rey was pretty great, at least ***1/2 for that. Undertaker/Khali... well its nothing over * . BUT, Undertaker puts in a great performance, so its watchable from that standpoint, though you'd have to be a big Undertaker fan lol.

Helms/Super Crazy is on the show too, seems like a match I would have watched because I was loving Helms in 06. Angle/Henry could be good but I skipped that because, well they stunk up the joint at the RR. Fuck knows where half my sodding JD 06 review actually went .

Taker vs Khali was what it was. Nothing OMG terrible, but nothing really worth seeing either. Although, I can slate it as one of Khali's better matches on the front of it meaning something. To hear the collective gasp from the fans after Khali wins is something else.

Mysterio vs JBL is good. Some even find it to be great. No doubt you'll get a kick out of it. Don't sleep on Henry vs Angle or Helms vs Crazy either. The latter being a match that never gets any love. Which is a shame.

Henry vs Angle is really good, Cal. Worth watching.

GOD how bad do I want to see MARK start off the chamber with somebody like Orton, beat them in less than five minutes, then get bored and rip apart a chamber because "THAT'S WHAT I DO!".

That Henry-Angle match is GOD compared to their shitty Royal Rumble encounter. Mark showed flashes of greatness throughout 2006-2011 but wasn't really able to get consistently great until the company was able to put some faith in him in terms of booking him the right way. It just goes to show you that when a guy has potential and you book him the right way, you're in for something special. His MITB performance is awesome as well.

It barely gets any time. Its fine for what it is though. Maybe ** at best. DAVID SAMMARTINO VS BRUTUS "THE WORST OF ALL TIME NOT NAMED CHAVOE GUERRERO JR" BEEFCAKE is actually the best thing on the show.
