I really enjoyed Hardy's match against Angle this past year at Victory Road as well.
2005 PPV Main Event wrap up
Quick Thoughts: Survivor Series tag was fun as hell, still one of my favorites and Orton/Taker HIAC was a solid match that didn't quite reach that MOTYC it could have but close.
Batista, Orton, Mysterio, JBL & Lashley vs. Michaels, Masters, Carlito, Big Show & Kane (5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Match- Smackdown vs. RAW)
WWE Survivor Series 2005
-One of favorite SS matches of all time (Partly because I was here live). An absolutely incredible 3 month build between the brands topped with a good match. The commentary teams trashing each other is hilarious, brand loyalty at its finest. Lots of good back and forth between the teams and no one overstayed their welcome, each elimination was great, adding a layer of drama to the match and by the end it could've gone either way. Orton RKO's Shawn for the finish and make it 3-0 in Survivor Series tag match (They should've made an Orton streak out of this), finally topped with an epic Taker return. This match had a lot of similarities to the much better classic 2003 SS RAW match, but this was still a good, fun match on its own merit.
Undertaker vs. Randy Orton (Hell in a Cell Match)
WWE Armageddon 2005
-Solid HIAC and 9 month feud ender between Orton and Taker. There was some good storytelling here with Taker wanting to go anal on Orton but Orton trying to keep it a regular match. Taker controls the flow of the match for the most part while Orton provided the heel offense. Bob Orton interference, Steel Steps, Splash through the table and more. Finish comes when Taker drops the Ortons with a pair of tombstones. Overall, a good HIAC match more or less dominated by Taker.
