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.

6/10

As for Vengeance '07, thought it was a really lackluster PPV. Only match I really liked was Murdoch/Cade vs Hardys and even then it wasn't better than their previous ones.
You don't care for Edge vs. Batista? I honestly love that match.

I probably like it more than most people here.

Edge trying to find a way out anyway he could was a great use of his character and Batista bitching "IT WAS MY LAST CHANCE!~" always gets me laughing.

Only match I can remember on that '07 show.

And go with No Mercy '08, Word. Really good show. Or Backlash '07 and if not either of those then Backlash '04.


Backlash 2007 is the last PPV I bought and actually cared about. Seeing as I love Backlash I'm certainly going to watch 04 tonight.

Backlash really was the most consistent PPV in the 2000s. '04-'09 were all pretty good shows. '00 was pretty good, I recall '01 being good. Can't remember much of '02 or '03 though.

Man, it's been a while since I posted in here. I see KingCal is still here, Clique and Brye (who are mods now? Things sure do change the more that I stay away ). So I guess some of the better posters on the forum still come to post in here.

Btw, just finish watch all of the Hot Rod DVD and I loved it. Piper was sure the man on the stick, documentary wasn't too bad and love all the Piper's Pit segments WWE put on the set. As far as matches go, they are pretty much hit and miss.

(Match) FAVORITES~ in order on the Piper set:

1). Roddy Piper vs. Greg Valentine - Dog Collar match at Starrcade '83: Fucking war. My favorite Piper match ever.

2). Roddy Piper vs. Bret "Hit Man" Hart - IC Title match at WrestleMania VIII: Why I never heard about this is beyond me. This was an awesome match. Piper's performance (which is amazing) in this reminds me somewhat of what Eddie Guerrero did much later with Batista at No Mercy '05 in how had the crowd in the palm in his hands on how fair or dirty he would play in the match. Heenan & Monsoon were perfect in commentary as usual.

3). Roddy Piper vs. Buddy Rose for the Northwest Heavyweight Title at Portland Wrestling - OLD SCHOOL!~ It's fun to see Piper being more of a wrestler here than his usual 'brawler' style he would be known for later on.

4). Roddy Piper vs. Jack Brisco for the Atlantic Heavyweight Title at Mid-Atlantic Wrestling: Again, much for the same reason as the last. But with the awesome little Piper promo at the end of it.

I was a mod too earlier this year .

Love the Piper set. Documentary is one of my favs, second disc with matches is good because there are some really good matches on there, and the rest are at least fun (for me, anyway). And then the 3rd disc... worth the price of the set alone to see all those Piper's Pit segments.

Just saw War Games 92 before putting Backlash 2004 on. Okay, I find this match impossible to rate, it's a strange concept with the only way to win is by submission. There are 10 men in the ring, it's pretty hard to see who submits and when they do the crowd doesn't have a clue, the match just ends. And a massive LOL with Heyman having a massive sheet of paper trying to adopt tactics to his team, that was pretty fucking pathetic. It's 2 rings put together, just fight, no tactics needed.


Meltzer aka The Great One gave this the full 5. Fuck knows how, just a bunch of men beating each other up for 20 minutes, nothing more nothing less. This might have been the hottest crowd ever btw, they wouldn't stop going nuts.

WarGames 1992 is incredible. One of THE greatest WCW matches of all time. Helps if you watch the whole Dangerous Alliance stuff to see the huge build up to it.

Cal, a mod? Ha, goes to show you how much I missed out on.

And I love the War Games concept. But I never watched the 1992 match before. Kind of interested in checking it out. I like to see how better or worse it is next to say the War Games '91 match (and that was one of my favorites ever outside that shit finish - damn Sid ).

1991 match didn't hold up nearly as well as I was hoping.
