A very solid PPV
bljonathan19 February 2016
Edge v Christian (Cage Match):

It's strange how a tag team has zero chemistry when fighting each other. It's slow to the point Christian even goes for a headlock although the ending is fairly innovative.

Scotty 2 Hotty v Hurricane

This is a much better match and crowd were more in to it.

DDP v Big Show

Its a Big Show match so you know what to expect. There have been far worse though. DDP is very likable. Also is it me or is there a Greece flag at every PPV?

Dudleys v APA v Hardys (WCW tag titles)

There's not much to say about this. There's work rate its just not a memorable match.

Regal v Tajiri

Regal gives a LOL promo suggesting the crowd have spent their "dole money" for tickets. I thought this was a fine 6 minute match and Tajiri is so stiff with his kicks.

Jericho v Angle (WCW title)

This is a really good pure wrestling match

The Rock does a backstage promo and I ain't gonna lie. Its cringeworthy.

Lita and Torie v Stacy Kiebler and Mighty Molly (Trish special guest)


Austin v Rock

A surprisingly A level main event for a British PPV. This is one of those matches that I call "walkie" matches. By that I mean there is a lot of walking around with both guys on the outside of the ring with punches, kicks, table spots and the occasional suplex here and there but its largely filler. I'm not a fan of these matches but if you are an Austin or Rock fan you probably want to see this match but its nothing you haven't seen before.


Watch Rock v Austin if you are a fan of either. Watch Angle v Jericho if you are a fan of either or good wrestling. Its quite unusual to have so many clean finishes at this time in WWE history so its a nice change of pace. The downside is nothing significant of consequence happens.

Decent PPV, Rock Lost again Austin again
amanwhorocks9 January 2016
Warning: Spoilers
1. Intercontinental Title Cage Match: Champ-Edge Vs. Christian - Match wasn't bad, but was pretty average. Edge Won. 7/10

2. Scotty 2 Hotty Vs. The Hurricane - Fu*k this match, Hurricane is far better wrestler and performed perfect moves there. But no, instead of him they let won that terrible overacting jerk. Push the better ones in matches like this! 3/10

3. Diamond Dallas Page Vs. Big Show - DDP always beat Giant in WCW, now Big Show took his payback in short but persuasive match. 7/10

4. WCW Tag Team Championship: Champs- Dudley Boyz Vs. A.P.A. Vs. Hardy Boyz - Matt Hardy pinned Faarooq! Oh that was unpredictable. I want Hardy team to win, but Dudleyz do that, in a clean way. Fine. 7.5/10

5. William Regal Vs. Tajiri - I like these two, Regal is funny and Tajiri great talent. Regal won in a clean way! 7.5/10

6. WCW Championship: Kurt Angle Vs. Champ-Chris Jericho - Y2J won over Kurt by Old School Pin in a hell of a match. 8/10

7. Molly Holly/Stacy Keibler Vs. Torrie Wilson/Lita - Stacy is maybe good in bed, but in ring she sucks, Lita looks in this match like after skank, but did great job, same Molly. Thrish was special ref. Heels lost. 6/10

8. WWF Championship: Champ-Stone Cold Vs. The Rock - How I hate Rock, I must admit he deserved to win that match and Belt! match was really good, btw. 8.5/10

An okay event

Warning: Spoilers
This was an okay event, nothing bad & nothing special. It was okay.

FIRST MATCH- EDGE VS. Christian IN A STEEL CAGE MATCH FOR THE WWF INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Not a bad match, but in my opinion could of been a bit more better. Christian is about to escape, when Edge ties his shoes to the cage & climbs over & out of the steel cage to win & to retain his WWF Intercontinental Championship. 5/10

SECOND MATCH- SCOTTY 2 HOTTY VS. HURRICANE I've got to admit, this was really a good & enjoyable match. Great wrestling from both of these Cruiserweights. Scotty 2 Hotty wins after his finishing move The Worm. 5/10

THIRD MATCH- BIG SHOW VS. DDP {DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE} I've got to say that DDP did try hard to topple down Big Show, but it was not to be. It was a pretty short match but to me, it was surprisingly a bit entertaining. Big Show wins after a Chokeslam. 3/10

FOURTH MATCH- DUDLEY BOYS VS. HARDY BOYS VS. APA IN A TRIPLE-THREAT TAG TEAM ELIMINATION MATCH FOR THE WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP Good match, it was pretty entertaining as the three most dominant teams in WWF face off against each other. Dudley Boys nail the 3-D on one of the Hardy Boys to win & to retain their WWF Tag Team Championship. 5/10

FIFTH MATCH- WILLIAM REGAL VS. TAJIRI A bit too short to amount to anything. William Regal wins after the Power Of The Punch which is his special move. 3/10

SIXTH MATCH- CHRIS JERICHO VS. KURT ANGLE FOR THE WCW CHAMPIONSHIP Good match between these two, as they have great chemistry when it comes to wrestling in the ring. Jericho wins but I forgot how to retain his WCW Championship. 5/10

SEVENTH MATCH- TORRIE Wilson & LITA VS. MIGHTY MOLLY & STACY KEIBLER Bad, sloppy & boring match between these Divas. Torrie Wilson & Lita win but I forgot how. 3/10

EIGHT MATCH- ROCK VS. STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN FOR THE WWF CHAMPIONSHIP The long awaited Wrestlemania X7 rematch was here. It was a good match, noticing the fact that this is Rock's first match since returning, & also this match has DQ's in them as it had not at Wrestlemania X7. The referee goes down, which Jericho comes to help out the Rock, but accidentally hots the Rock with his WCW belt. Austin covers & gets a 3 count to win & retain his WWF Championship. 5/10

An okay event, nothing really to complain about, it had good matches & some that were bad. Pretty good event which keeps delivering the perfect hype towards Survivor Series.

Overall I'll give it 6/10 & a C
