Even Bobby Lashley had some awesome matches thanks to his battles with Finlay. That's how good the year was. Holy shit, another Finlay vs Benoit match that I totally forgot about happened. And it got a good bunch of time too. Happened the same night as the Kane vs MVP steel cage. Why do I remember that but not Finlay vs Benoit?!
I remember him being the most consistent guy that year. Looking back at the 6 months he was on ECW in 2009 he was just about the #1 guy on there too. His WWE tenure may have been the strongest that didn't lead to a main event push.
No Mercy 2006 was the window. It was a long shot, but I went into it possibly getting the best result ever. No go.
the real treat that night was the bonus match. oh HELL yeah. I have to credit other guys on the roster during the year except for Finlay, Regal, & Benoit (who wasn't even there the entire year, but OWNED during his time) Helms had one hell of a career year. Loved that being a big fan of his. UNDERTAKER is always worth praise. Even though he feuded with Khali & Kennedy, lolz. Kennedy had his best stretch of his career when he returned in 2006. Might not say much, but his credibility was at an all time high and he actually seemed like he was gonna have a future. Like I said, Lashley was carried to good stuff. Matt Hardy was on a roll, which contributes back to Helms. London & Kendrick obviously. PIRATE Paul Burchill & Simon Dean were awesome guilty pleasures for me. Booker, he deserves a mention for having his career year. Mysterio too. Orton was GREAT just in his bit on the brand. Angle too. Henry's matches don't mesh well in my head, but I'm sure he was able to have some watchable stuff. His bout vs Angle @ Judgment Day was solid. Cruiserweights did there thing of course. KANE was a fun addition at the end. Oh, and MVP was still fresh so we didn't discover his flaws till 2007, so more goodness. DAVE TAYLOR too. Ok...think I'm done.
