At least Umaga didn't get pinned by Candice. That's where you dodged the real bullet, haha.

Indeed they did. Really fed off each other nicely. Showed in the Hardy vs Nitro/Morrison matches too.

2009 ruled though. Some idiots only choose to remember Hornswoggle & Chavo crap + RAW celebrity GM nonsense, but on the other side of the coin you had Smackdown, ECW, & Superstars with quality bouts every week. RAW didn't shy away from some good bouts themselves that year. But, ECW & Smackdown. Holy crap they were great.

@Matt_Yoda: You probably thought the Rumble tag felt rushed since it was about 8 minutes less than the December 2 Dismember match was. They REALLY got all the freedom in the world to make that match come off strong.

I agree on '09. Smackdown & ECW were great and TED & CODY were getting time on Raw. Shame that didn't pan out for Ted (shut up McQueen & Cal ). 2008 is a really underrated year too, imo. Really solid Edge/Taker feud, ECW had Henry/Hardy going, Jeff/Trips awesome feud, Cena/Batista, PUNK and a great WM and build to it. And let's not forget Batista/HBK.

You both are justified in your viewpoints I can't argue that. I don't know I thought the Rumble match with MNM was very well done but I just vastly preferred their DTD match, the Rumble match felt rushed. The Hardys vs. Cade & Murdoch at Judgment Day was alright I just couldn't get into it and it was really a step down from their Backlash match. The Night of Champions match was more the same as their Judgment Day match really. Still a solid line up of PPV matches that delivered.
I really liked the D2D match. It's a little fuzzy because of the abomination that was the rest of that show, though.

Cena/Umaga at Royal Rumble 2007 was awesome, and you may be right about the first half being good, but after the Benoit tragedy in June and Khali becoming World Champ in July the show went downhill fast.

And that's where are opinions greatly differ because I hated 2009. So much so, to the point where I took a break from wrestling for a month because Orton was boring the crap out of me as the champion on RAW. Worst wrestling year imo.

Yeah, FUCK. Khali's reign was less than desirable.

I often stated my criticisms about WWE '08 but the beginning of that year was boss and ECW was my favorite show during the second half of the year. WWE really REALLY dropped the ball on Michaels/Batista they could've made for a great program IMO.

I figure you would appreciate this. Went to an ECW houseshow in '08 that had a 20 minute Hardy/Henry match that absolutely owned. Was very similar to the No Mercy one except it featured COLIN DELANEY at the end.

2007 was a cursed year for WWE and I'm surprised they survived those DARK times. HHH, Shawn Michaels, Undertaker, John Cena, Edge, Mr. Kennedy, Matt Hardy and plenty others were out at one point or another due to injury, then the Benoit tragedy fucked things up even worse followed by the suspensions afterwards. The year started off okay with the successful Wrestlemania but the summer is the darkest of them if there has ever been one. But there were still some good stuff after that such as Batista/Taker and Orton's title reign.

Orton vs Ted I in England

I still loved getting crap back then for thinking Cody was the better half of Legacy. Oh my how I was the only one who pegged that. CODY RHODES IS LEGIT. Ted is quality too, imo. Too bad he's been reduced down to jobber. Not to mention those injuries that plagued him all year till about NOC when he returned.

2008 had it's moments. RAW & ECW certainly outshined Smackdown for the majority of the year. Smackdown was SO bad for a good while. Not until the very end did it have some matches that made it worth seeing. (Taker/Show Cage, Jeff/HHH series, Shelton/Helms US Championship, believe Edge/Matt had a strong showing, Jeff/Show, etc.)

While you mentioned Punk for 2008, Brye, you forgot the best thing about that year: Jericho vs Michaels feud. Completely owned the rest of the year for anyone. Granted Taker/Edge was a damn good series of matches. PPVs delivered for that year. No Mercy 2008 being the tops. Excellent show.

@ Nostalgia: That's why I didn't mention RAW stuff overall for 2009. I mentioned everything else about the WWE being great. That was like Orton's best year too. So I don't agree w/that point.

LMAO @ Colin Delaney, damn I'm" getting nostalgic and it was only 4 years ago. Yeah it's no secret I loved WWECW during that time period and the Miz/Morrison team was really entertaining. There was a great ECW Fatal 4 Way match between Matt/Finlay/Miz/Morrison but it got taken off of YouTube sadly.

EDIT:
Man WWE pissed me off with the way they dropped the ball on Ted Jr., I don't know if that was the match but the facials and psychology in that match was excellent IMO. The fans were so behind Ted at that time.

Fuck, dunno how I forgot HBK/Jericho. That feud was great. Jericho's heel persona from that point on was amazing. And No Mercy from that year is one of my go-to shows to watch.

And while I'm a bigger mark for Ted, I sort of always saw a bit more in Cody. Ted's moveset is getting bigger and bigger each week, by the way. He's added in a suicide dive, flying knee and some other cool stuff.

I remember watching that match live. Believe it was in late July or August of the year. Good stuff.
