Location: US Airways Center, Phoenix, Arizona

by "Rockin" Robin Drodge

Event Date:  May 21, 2006

Match number one - WWE Tag Team Championship. WWE Tag Team Champions; Mercury, Nitro and Melina (MNM) vs. Paul London and Brian Kendrick.  This was the opening match for Judgment Day.  It was a very good match.  The ending saw Paul London hit a sunset flip on Mercury to pick up the pin-fall victory to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.  After the match, Melina was not very happy with Mercury and Nitro.  Melina and Nitro appeared to form a partnership leaving Mercury behind, resulting in the team of MNM splitting up.

Match number two - Chris Benoit vs. Finlay.  This was a very good match.  The ending saw Chris Benoit apply the crippler crossface on Finlay to make him tap out to the move to win the match.

Match number three - Jillian Hall vs. Melina.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Jillian hit a sunset flip on Melina to pick up the pin-fall victory..

Match number four - WWE Cruiserweight Championship.  WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Gregory Helms vs. Super Crazy.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Gregory Helms roll up Super Crazy and put his feet on the ropes to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain his Championship.

Match number five - Kurt Angle vs. Mark Henry.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Mark Henry deliver a splash on the outside of the ring in which Kurt Angle hit the ring post.  As a result, Kurt Angle was counted out.  Therefore, Mark Henry wins the match as the result of a count out.

Match number six - The Finals of the King of the Ring Tournament.  Booker T (with Sharmell in his corner) vs. Bobby Lashley.  This match was all right.  The ending saw Finlay interfere and use his shillelagh to hit Bobby Lashley, which was followed up by a scissors kick to pick up the pin-fall victory.  Booker T is the new King of the Ring.

Match number seven - The Undertaker vs. The Great Khali with Daivari in his corner.  This match was all right.  The ending saw The Great Khali hit a second chop to the Undertaker’s head and then it was followed up with a big boot to pick up the pin-fall victory.

Match number eight - The Main Event:  World Heavyweight Championship. World Heavyweight Champion, Rey Mysterio vs. United States Champion, John “Bradshaw” Layfield (JBL).  This match was all right.  The ending saw Rey Mysterio hit the 619, however the Referee was knocked down.  JBL had hit a power bomb and a second Referee came in to count the three count; however, this did not happen.  JBL went to get a steel chair to hit Rey Mysterio, however the chair was kicked back in his face.  Then Rey Mysterio followed it up with a second 619 and hit a frog splash from off the top rope to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain his Championship.


Some additional comments regarding Judgment Day.

This Pay-Per-View was sold out with 15,421 fans in attendance.

In the Melina/Jillian Hall match, Melina did get pinned, however her hands were on the ropes.  When this happens the match is supposed to continue, but this did not happen. 

Later in the night during Judgment Day, Melina and Nitro approached SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long, and confronted him about getting a rematch for the WWE Tag Team Championship and about what happened in Melina’s match.  Both Nitro and Melina questioned Theodore Long on what he was going to do.  Long's response was that he would do nothing.  At this point, Melina slapped him in the face, and in the process, it resulted in her and Nitro being fired.
