avi010720 July 2008
Match 1: William Regal vs. Rikishi. Not a brilliant opener. It was certainly not bad but still very average. 4/10

Pinfalls Match: Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit. We didn't get to see the two really go at it cause it was pretty short but sets up well the next falls. 6/10

Submissions Match: Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit Benoit. Intense is what I've got say about it. The two men give it all and delivers a great contest. 7.5/10

Ladder Match: Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit. Angle did great in his first ladder match. The match is great to say the least...Benoit-Angle is never a let down. 8.5/10

WWF Hardcore Championship: Rhyno (c) vs. Test vs. Big Show. Could surely have been better but was still an entertaining match. There has been tons of better match in this division but this certainly was still entertaining. 6/10

WWF Women's Championship: Chyna (c) vs. Lita. I'm actually shocked how much I enjoyed this match other than for the reason there was two hot girls on the ring. Brilliant wrestling performances from both of them. 7.5/10

WWF Intercontinental Championship - Chain Match: HHH (c) (w/Stephanie) vs. Kane. Awesome. the best match of the night. It was brutal, chaotic ,bloody and intense. The ending is great and perfectly executed. 9/10

Tag Team Turmoil Match: The Acolytes vs. The Radicalz vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. X-Factor vs. The Hardy Boyz vs. Chris Jericho and ? vs. Edge and Christian I'm not a fan of no.1 contender ship matches on PPV but his was still pretty entertaining. Great choice for Y2J's tag team partner(pretty predictable tho). 6/10

WWF Heavyweight Championship Match: No Holds Barred: Stone Cold Steve Austin (c) vs. the Undertaker The much anticipated main event. These two have had some great classics in the past. Well is this one their best match? NO. Is it bad or average? Hell no! Taker and Austin deliver a thrilling contest, tho a little too slow at times. The chaotic ending is great, maybe the camera men could have done better. Great match. 8/10
