    7.3
    WWE Tag Team Championship

    John Morrison & The Miz vs. Finlay & Hornswoggle

    This was a better tag team match than I expected. The champs show some unique teamwork, and keep the match interesting. Finlay does a good job as usual, with Horny having some of his usual offense. Champs retain in a solid opener

    Winners & Still Tag Team Champions: John Morrison & The Miz

    Match Rating: 7/10



    United States Champions

    Matt Hardy vs. Chavo Guerrero

    Another match that I though was better than most reviews gave it. The pace was slower than average from these men, with Chavo working on Matt's leg most of the bout, but it all worked well, and led to a nice finish which the fans never expected.

    Winner & Still US Champion: Matt Hardy

    Match Rating: 6/10



    Triple Threat Match for the ECW Championship

    Kane vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry

    Once again, many reviews don't give this match a chance. Obviously it wasn't a classic, and it was pretty slow paced. But these three actual entertain me for the most part, as its never truly boring. Nice finish, even if I dont agree with the winner.

    Winner & NEW ECW Champion: Mark Henry

    Match Rating: 5/10



    World Tag Team Championship

    Hardcore Holly & Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase & ?

    This was more of a segment, so I'll go play by play. DiBiase says his partner will be come in a few minutes. Cody turns Holly around, and gives him a DDT. DiBiase says Cody is his partner. Ted puts the Million Dollar Dream on Holly, and turns it into a leg sweep for the win. Good job

    Winners & NEW World Tag Team Champions: Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase

    Match Rating: 5/10



    Intercontinental Championship

    Chirs Jericho vs. Kofi Kingston

    I was surprised when I heard Kingston was his opponent, as I expected Michaels to take some gold. These two mixed pretty well, and I didn't expect Kingston to keep up with the veteran. It was a pretty good back and forth match, with Michaels interfering, costing Jericho his title. In my opinion, Michaels deserved everything he got after the match, and I thought it was stupid the announcers played it off like Jericho was a bad person.

    Winner & NEW Intercontinental Champion: Kofi Kingston

    Match Rating: 7/10



    Women's Championship

    Mickie James vs. Katie Lea Burchill

    I didn't expect much from this match, but I was pretty surprised here. They put on a very solid match. Nothing spectacular, but the action was solid, and never got boring. James hits a nice tornado DDT for the win

    Winner & Still Women's Champion: Mickie James

    Match Rating: 6/10



    World Heavyweight Championship

    Edge vs. Batista

    Funny how these two had the same match at last years Night Of Champions. I really enjoyed this one as well. Maybe not as good as their matches against the Undertaker, but these two mix very well together. They started out in first gear, but turned it up a notch the longer it went. I was sort of disappointed by the finish, but it didn't take anything away from a very good match.

    Winner & Still World Champion: Edge

    Match Rating: 7.5/10



    WWE Championship

    Triple H vs. John Cena

    This was very similar to their match back at Wrestlemania 22. It started with a back and forth test of strength, and slowly built to an awesome contest where you really couldn't tell who was going to come out on top. Some reversals to finishers lead to Hunter finally putting Cena away with a Pedigree. Awesome main event

    Winner & Still WWE Champion: Triple H

    Match Rating: 8.5/10



    I thought this was a very good event. There were a few average matches, but with a solid opener & midcard, and two awesome main events, this ppv is worth the $15moreless
  • Night of Champions, where every title is defended. How does it fair? Let's see:

    6.1
    WWE Tag Team Championship

    John Morrison and The Miz (c) def. Finlay and Hornswoggle - **

    Thank GAWD. I shudder to think what the hell would've happened if those 2 were to dethrone Miz and Morrison. Finlay I wouldn't have minded as a champion, but Hornswoggle? Didn't they learn anything from his Cruiserweight title run? I guess not. Finlay did his usual stuff, Miz and Morrison looked good, Hornswoggle was the annoying midget that needs to get the hell off of my TV and I'm glad he took the pin in the match.



    United States Championship

    Matt Hardy (c) def. Chavo Guerrero w/Bam Neeley - **

    Much like the tag title match, WWE haven't learn anything from past mistakes. Take Chavo Guerrero. He was tag team champion 3 times with his late uncle Eddie, feuded with Rey Mysterio, apart of La Familia on SmackDown........and he can't get over. Plus he's Cruiserweight championship material, and yes, that includes the ECW title as well. With his failed feud with Chris Benoit when he was the U.S. champion, WWE puts him in another U.S. title match........only to lose. Joy. They are running out of ideas with Chavito, aren't they? Much like the tag title match as well, nothing special here.



    ECW Championship

    Mark Henry def. Kane (c) and Big Show - *3/4

    Look at the entrance-way. They used the Cruiserweight title design, erased the writing on it and replaced with the letters E-C-W. Goes to show how much they care for that title, huh? Also, what do you get when you put 3 obesed men in the ring? A slow, prolonged, boring triple threat title match. That's what you get. Mark Henry pins Kane to become the ECW champion......and here's predicting a lot of idiots saying that the big guy is only champion because of the Michael Hayes incident.



    World Tag Team Championship

    Ted Dibiase Jr and Cody Rhodes (c) def. Hardcore Holly (c) - DUD

    GAWD this PPV is sucky right now. Not only do we have new tag team champions with a somewhat predictable heel turn from Cody Rhodes, we get more filth. Nice.



    Intercontinental Championship

    Kofi Kingston def. Chris Jericho (c) w/Lance Cade - **1/4

    Lack of build-up and care for the Intercontinental title killed this match for me. We have a new champion after a predictable interference by Shawn Michaels, but another one of Jericho's whiny, abused housewife promos as well. Nothing special in this match either other than some weak "boring" chants.



    Women's Championship

    Mickie James def. Katie Lea Burchill w/Paul Burchill - *1/2

    Worst match of the night in my opinion. At least Kane did something in his title match, this one wasn't all that good at all. Next match........



    World Heavyweight Championship

    Edge (c) def. Batista - ***1/4

    Oh wow, the first match to break the 2-star barrier. In any event, this was a good match between the Rated-R superstar and Batista. And of course, will the real Batista PLEASE WORK tonight? Which he did, just a bit. And of course, we know that with any match regarding Edge, he must rely heavily on his stable full of jobbers to beat Batista. Which is what happened. Well with Edge retaining and Batista gone to Raw, let this be his final title shot please? Please?



    WWE Championship

    Triple H (c) def. John Cena - ****

    GREAT match between the 2 and MOTY candidate for the WWE. And people say Cena must be carried to these kind of matches, yeah right. Fans were behind both men, the chemistry was there, the momentum shifts were great, I was on the edge of my seat. And the ending (SWERVE) saw Cena pinned clean, so don't get your panties soiled Cena haters should he win the belt back.



    God Damn, this PPV sucked. Worst PPV the WWE has put on right now for the year. While having all of the titles on the line on one card looks good on paper, lack of build-up and care killed this PPV completely. Plus the matches felt thrown together just to make a card, much like LAST year's Night of Champions. So if anything, kill this PPV.moreless
