KOTR suffers like most KOTR PPV's with the tournament matches all having to be relatively short so they can get them all on the show AND stop the 2 guys going all the way from knackering themselves out. And with that, the matches for the most part never really get the chance to get going. Street fight with Shane and Angle is great though. Not a fan of the triple threat personally.
InVasion was fun to me:
E&C Vs Awesome & Storm is just a decent opener and not much else. Fun, but nothing special.
Earl Vs Patrick is what it is
APA Vs Palumbo & O'Haire is pretty good imo. Always enjoyed the APA as a team and I liked O'Haire a lot.
Kidman Vs X-Pac is a decent little CW match.
Raven Vs Regal kinda sucks.
6 man tag is only about 4 minutes long and is a bunch of fun. Love the big power spot with all the WWF guys overhead pressing their opponents at the same time.
Tajiri Vs Tazz kinda sucks. Shame because I just watched a 5 minute TV match between them in ECW and it was super fun.
RVD Vs Jeff is great imo. One of the better hardcore title matches, and so much better than their utter shit train wreck of a ladder match they would go on to have at SummerSlam.
Trish & Lita Vs Stacy & Torrie. 4 super hot women trying to strip each other. Its worth a watch
Main event tag is great. Plenty of star power, a great crowd, lots of action and shocking finish (took me by complete surprise at the time lol).
Overall the show isn't filled with great matches as such, but its the first WWF Vs WCW/ECW show and was really for the most part all about the main event anyway. Rest of the card suffers a little from time constraints and they put too many matches on the show. Take out Regal Vs Raven, Tazz Vs Tajiri, Earl Vs Patrick and give that time to the two two-on-two tag matches and the show would probably have been a hell of a lot better.
