Match number one - Randy Orton vs. Kurt Angle. This was the opening match at Vengeance. It was very good. The ending saw Randy break out of the ankle lock and then Kurt Angle hit his head on the turnbuckle that was exposed by Randy Orton. From there Orton hit the RKO to pick up the pin-fall victory.
Match number two - Umaga (with Armando Alejandro Estrada in his corner) vs. Eugene with “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Doink the Clown, and Kamala in his corner. This match was very quick. The ending saw Umaga apply the Samoan Spike on Eugene to pick up the pin-fall victory.
Match number three - Two out of Three Falls Match. Ric Flair vs. Mick Foley. This match was all right. The ending saw Mick Foley attempt to apply the figure four leg-lock, however Ric Flair rolled him up to pick up the pin-fall to win the first Fall. The ending for the second Fall saw Ric Flair locking in the figure four leg-lock on Foley in which he used a trash can that got him disqualified. As a result, Ric Flair wins the Fall and the Match.
Match number four - Triple Threat Intercontinental Championship Match. Intercontinental Champion Shelton Benjamin vs. Carlito and Johnny Nitro (with Melina in his corner). This was a very good match. The ending saw Carlito hit the Back Cracker. However, as Carlito was going for the pin-fall, Johnny Nitro threw him out of the ring. Nitro then went for the cover on Shelton Benjamin in which he picked up the pin-fall victory to become the new Intercontinental Champion.
Match number five - WWE™ Championship. WWE™ Champion Rob Van Dam vs. Edge (with Lita in his corner). This was a good match.

The chair ended up hitting Edge, which resulted in Rob Van Dam hitting the five-star frog splash from off the top rope to pick up the pin-fall victory to retain his Championship.
Match number six - Kane vs. Kane. This match was all right. The ending saw the fake Kane hit a choke slam on the original Kane to pick up the pin-fall victory.
Match number seven - Extreme Lumber Jack Match: John Cena vs. Sabu. This match was all right. The ending saw John Cena hit a FU on Sabu; in which Sabu went through a table on the outside of the ring, which led to Cena applying the STF to make Sabu tap out to the move.
Match number eight - The Main Event. Five on Two Handicap Match. D-Generation X (Shawn Michaels and Triple H) vs. the World Tag Team Champions, The Spirit Squad. This match was all right. The ending saw Shawn Michaels hit the Sweet Chin Music and Triple H hit the Pedigree at the same time on both Kenny and Mikey. This resulted in Shawn Michaels and Triple H pinning both members of The Spirit Squad at the same time to pick up the pin-fall victory.
Some additional comments regarding Vengeance.
There was no announcement of how many fans were in attendance for this Pay-Per-View.
I am not sure what they are doing with Kane against Kane; I have no idea where this is going.I thought for certain that Edge would win the WWE™ Championship tonight, however this did not happen. I am only hoping the WWE™ don’t decide to put the Championship back on John Cena, because in my opinion Edge is the better choice right now.
