Benoit vs Orlando Jordan (c) for the US title: 1/4 *. Crowd was going absolutely apeshit for Benoit which was the main reason why I didn't give this a dud. Lol at Benoit post match
Edge vs Matt Hardy:
at the chants toward Lita, fuck! Nice little brawl, although it was only about 5 mins. **
Eddie vs Rey ladder match: I remember watching this match and not liking it, I thought the ending was really dumb. On second watch, it's alot better. Some great spots throughout the match, like when Eddie put Rey in between 2 ladders and flipped onto him. Backdrop by Rey on the ladder to Eddie was nice as well. VERY nice 3 Amigos spot too. Ending was...still fucking dumb even 7 years later. Still, worth the watch. *** 1/4
Kurt vs Eugene: Again, 1/4 * just for the crowd. Not much else to say about this
Orton vs Taker: Very good match, great selling throughout, some great back and forths, hell I might have even liked this better than their fucking Mania match. *** 3/4
Cena(c) vs Y2J for the WWE championship: I liked how Jericho worked on Cena's ribs the entire match (the 3 elbows spot was great), the first half of this match was very boring but the second half it really picked up. Great counters from Jericho, and a good ending as well. The first half was so bad though, brought down my rating on the match a bit. ***
Batista (c) vs JBL No Holds Barred match for the WHC: Is it just me, or was this really boring? Outside of Batista's spear and the powerbomb on the steps, there's nothing else that I cared for here. **
Hogan vs HBK: This actually wasn't that bad, alot less overselling than I remembered.
at the We Want Bret chant, this crowd has been money all night. Typical ending, but it's Hogan, he looked like he could barely move around this match. ** 1/4
Overall: ** 1/2, matches were either very short, or went on too long (main event). 2 DUDs if you ignore the crowd,, very underwhelming main event considering the hype that match got, but there's also a great match in Orton/Taker and 2 good ones in the ladder match and Cena/Y2J (although I'd start watching from the second half of the match).
