Was archiving my old reviews earlier and I came across the review for that show(NOTE: This is an old review, which basically means that I was too lazy to do a big write-up for each match like I currently do)
Vengeance 2007: Night Of Champions
Cade & Murdoch vs The Hardyz: ** 3/4
Guerrero vs Wang Yang: ** 3/4
Nitro vs Punk: ***
Marella vs Umaga: *
MVP vs Flair: **
Deuce n Domino vs Slaughter and Snuka: * 1/2
Edge vs Batista: ***
Candace vs Melina: DUD
WWE Championship 5 Way: ***
Thoughts: This PPV is obviously overshadowed by one key incident: The Chris Benoit double homicide/suicide. That is what this night will be remembered for. However, this event had its fair share of good matches nonetheless.
The opener was a formula based tag team match that we've seen out of the Hardys, dozens of times. With that being said, I thought it was a good choice for an opener, and a decent match overall.
Guerrero vs Wang Yang surprisingly got a nice bit of time, and managed to but together a pretty decent match given the circumstances. Nothing GREAT, but a decent, fast paced cruiserweight bout.
Nitro vs Punk was a good encounter, a solid match between two talented performers, but what makes this match so interesting, are the Benoit chants in the background. It makes you think, what was Benoit doing at that very moment ? chilling stuff. Besides that, an above decent, GOOD matchup between the two young competitors.
The next two matches (IC and US championships) have one thing in common: You forget that you've watched them minutes after you've actually watched them. Seriously, those 2 matches are insanely forgettable, although the US championship is more enjoyable because of Naitch.. WOOOOO.
We had a father vs son battle as Deuce and Jimmy Snuka face off in the squared circle for the tag te.....Wait what ? They're actually father and son... Hmmmm points for that. Match sucked but it was good for Nostalgia's sake.
The WHC match exceeded my expectations, as Edge and Batista told a fantastic story, and came up with a finish that made Batista still look strong. A good, solid match that is worth the watch.
Skip the Diva's match unless you don't have any good porn to watch. Seriously.
The WWE Championship match, while a clusterfuck, is a very entertaining clusterfuck. Before the match I asked myself how are they going to protect the likes of Orton and Lashley, who haven't even feuded with Cena yet, and the answer was simple: just get Mick Foley to do the job. A good main event to send the fans home happy.
If there was one word to describe Vengeance 2007 it would be average. We have a bunch of almost 3 star matches alongside 3 star matches with nothing above and a few matches below. Without the whole Benoit incident, this PPV probably would have become forgotten. Still though, not bad and a great way to kill some time. The idea of every championship being defended is brilliant as well.
