number one - WWE™
Tag Team Champions MNM vs. Charlie Haas and Hardcore Holly.
This was the opening match
for Judgment Day. The
match was good and the fans seemed to have enjoyed it.
The ending saw MNM hit their finisher, which is called the
snap shot to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain their
number two - The
Big Show Vs. Carlito Caribbean Cool with Matt Morgan in his corner.
was an all right match. The
ending saw the referee get knocked down and then right after this
the Big Show attempted to hit Carlito with the choke slam, however,
Carlito hit a low blow and then Matt Morgan entered the ring.
Matt then hit the Big Show with a big boot and then picked
him up and delivered a F5 to help Carlito to pick up the pin-fall
number three - WWE™
Cruiserweight Championship. WWE™
Cruiserweight Champion, Paul London Vs. Chavo
This match was very good.
The ending saw Paul London hit a Back Drop on Chavo from the top
rope, then London followed-up with the 450 Splash to pick up the
pin-fall victory to retain his Championship.
number four - Booker
T. Vs. Kurt Angle.
match was all right. The
ending saw Booker T roll up Kurt Angle to pick up the pin-fall
number five - United
States Championship. United
States Champion, Orlando Jordan Vs. Heidenreich.
match was all right, the ending saw Orlando Jordan hit a DDT on
Heidenreich to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain his
number six - Eddie
Guerrero Vs. Rey Mysterio.
match was all right. It
could have been better because of what happened at the end.
Rey Mysterio had hit Eddie Guerrero with the 619 and then
went up to the top rope to hit a Springboard move, but when he tried
to hit Eddie with it, Eddie hit Rey in the head with a steel chair.
The referee had seen it and disqualified Eddie Guerrero, so
Rey Mysterio won the match as the result of a disqualification.
number seven - WWE™
Championship, "I Quit" Match.
rule for this match was for someone to say the words, "I
Champion, John Cena Vs. John "Bradshaw" Layfield (JBL).
I don't know what to say about this match. There was a lot of blood from both wrestlers and they did
whatever they could to make their opponent say the words, "I
Quit". In the end
it saw John Cena take a pipe off a flat bed truck that was in the
arena. However, before
Cena could hit JBL with the pipe, he screamed into the mike that was
in the referee's hand and said the words, "I Quit".
The match ended with the winner being John Cena, so he is
still the WWE™
Some additional comments
regarding Judgment Day™.
It was not announced how many
fans were in attendance so I can only assume that it was not a
sell-out for this Pay-Per-View.
I was not happy with the way
that the Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio match ended.
The build-up for this match was very good and then to end it
in a Disqualification was not a good move.
I was disappointed. I
guess that this will result in another match between them to finally
settle the issues they have with each other.
I think the way the Booker T
and Kurt Angle match ended was confusing.
In the roll-up, at first it appeared the Referee had counted
three but the bell did not ring right away.
It appeared at that point it may have only been a two count,
but then the bell rang. So the ending was rather confusing.
I am not surprised that John
Cena retained his Championship.
The reason for this was:
First, for some of the live events they were advertising him
defending the WWE™
Championship at the end of
the month, so this was the first indication that he would not lose
the Championship. Second,
is that he just had the release of a CD entitled "You Can't See
Me", so there was a lot of promotion.
It would not have made any sense for him to lose the
Championship when he was getting a lot of promotion.
Third, is that it was really only one month that he was the
Champion, so it wouldn't make sense for him to lose the championship
I think if the WWE™
was smart they would wait for
Christian to be drafted to SmackDown™
in the draft lottery to set
up a feud between Christian and Cena for the WWE™
Championship, in which
Christian would win the title.
has been the Judgment Day™
