    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

    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

    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

    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 $15
