  • Most of this PPV sucked, The Hardyz match owned, but over all, there was very little real wrestling and sadly the entertainment value is slipping to horrible per-portions.

    If you look at the cards available you will noticed the terrible line up in store. There were a few good matches and one stood out the most.

    The gem of the bunch was The Hardyz vs The Worlds Greatest Tag Team of Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas in a ladder match. This is exactly what you would expect from this type of match. Very brutal, very unpredictable and very dangerous. Certainly blood was swelling even after the match. But I have to totally agree with Haas statement and it wasn't a real wrestling match. Even I can agree and understand why Benjamin and Haas were annoyed. But take nothing away, I give credit to all in this match.

    Another match I enjoyed was the ECW Originals with CM Punk vs The New Breed. There was crash and burn, power, technical ability on show and most of all there was carnage.

    One of the main events was Batista challenging Edge for the World Heavyweight title. This was also pretty good, you wouldn't be so sure which way the match would go and Batista even managed to get one submission in the match near the begging with a camel clutch. Batista always seems to do better in matches that involve hardcore scenario's and steel! Thankfully Edge managed to get out of the cage to keep the title. It's about time someone other than Batista got a shot.

    The rest of the matches were pretty poor, RVD vs Orton was terrible. RVD was glazed the whole match and looked like "why am I still here!". But it is rumoured that he is on his way out of the WWE. Orton can do much better than this, why the WWE make him have to play act so much. You could tell he had plenty of energy left in him. He could of won the match easy if allowed. The match type was the was the worse part, it didn't do justice to the skill both wrestlers have. It was so wrong, that it made the match worse than a normal match.

    The most horrible and worse match of the night has to go for the ladies division. What the hell was that, it was a slosh! Terrible card, not entertaining at all. Once they Diva's were covered it was ruined!

    Mark Henry vs Kane was pretty bland, nothing real happened there. Just a tiny show of power and strength. This was another example of a miss-match type! Then you get Vince with his ECW obsession which he is almost near destroying! Least the belt is now back in the hands of a wrestler! Hopefully this is all finished now and ECW can get back to some norm!

    Finally the main event. The main event of a match type which can work. Sadly know it didn't. Khali had to JOB! If you watch closely you see that Khali is so big you can see him bounce when he hits the big airbag hiding there!! The WWE needs to stop rigging dam matches and fix it so they can never be rigged again. This was certainly ruining the end to a PPV. Probably why I gave this PPV such a low score.moreless
  • One Night Stand 2007: Extreme Rules

    Stretcher Match

    Randy Orton vs. Rob Van Dam

    Solid opening match. Van Dam sells his 'concussion' pretty well in the match. He also takes a sick bump after botching a summersault plancha. In the end RVD gets the suprise win, but is beat down after the match.

    Winner: Rob Van Dam

    Match Rating: 7/10

    Tables Match

    Tommy Dreamer, CM Punk & The Sandman vs. Elijah Burke, Matt Striker & Marcus Cor Von

    Another solid match. Pretty much a 6 man brawl that led to some nice spots. The finish was pretty cool, but the match felt rushed, and was too short.

    Winners: Tommy Dreamer, CM Punk & Sandman

    Match Rating: 6.5/10

    Ladder Match for the World Tag Team Championship

    The Hardys vs. Charlie Hass & Shelton Benjamin

    Pretty good ladder match. Of course it was very fun to watch, but it probably could have been better. Hass & Benjamin didn't really know what to do with the ladders, which brought the match down. Some botched spots, but solid match and the champs retain.

    Winners & Still World Tag Team Champions: The Hardys

    Match Rating: 7/10

    Lumberjack Match

    Kane vs. Mark Henry

    Whoever booked this is stupid. Below average big man match, with nothing special happening. Kane loses after a BEARHUG. He really has sunk this low

    Winner: Mark Henry

    Match Rating: 3/10

    Street Fight for the ECW World Championship

    Vince McMahon vs. Bobby Lashley

    Obviously Vince didn't do much the whole match, and the fight was between Umaga/Shane and Bobby. Not as bad as you'd expect, and finally Lashley wins the title back.

    Winner & NEW ECW World Champion: Bobby Lashley

    Match Rating: 6/10

    Pudding Match

    Candice vs. Melina


    Winner: Candice

    Match Rating: .5/10

    Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Championship

    Edge vs. Batista

    Finally a good match. Started out slow, but gradually picked up some steam and became a very entertaining title match. Edge busts his lip in the only blood of the night. In the end, while Batista is crawling out the door, Edge drops from the cage to retain his title.

    Winner & Still World Heavyweight Champion: Edge

    Match Rating: 7/10

    Falls Count Anywhere Match for the WWE Championship

    John Cena vs. Great Khali

    Just an okay main event, I would pick the Steel Cage match over this though. They brawl around the arena until Cena gives Khali an F-U off a crane (only around 6 feet high) and gets the win.

    Winner & Still WWE Champion: John Cena

    Match Rating: 6/10

    One Night Stand 2007 was an average pay per view. The Ladder, Stretcher, Cage & Tables matches were good. But the other four were pretty bad matches. Worth a $5 rent from Blockbuster, but nothing moremoreless
  • The best PPV since Royal Rumble back in January. Proof that crazy gimmicks like "extreme rules" actually work.

    Tommy S.

    Yes, just two weeks after Judgment Day, World Wrestling Entertainment went right on forward with yet another Pay-Per-View, once again featuring superstars from all three WWE shows. And what for the last two years has been an event dedicated to the memory of ECW, has now become a PPV tradition dedicated to “extreme rules." At the 2007 One Night Stand on Sunday, June 3, superstars from RAW, ECW, and Smackdown! alike took “extreme” to the next level, as the Pay-Per-View also marked the one-year anniversary of ECW’s revival as WWE’s third brand last summer. The gimmick for this PPV? All matches on the card were contested under “extreme rules,” meaning, regardless of the stipulations, standard, one-fall, singles matches were thrown completely out the window. Sandwiched in-between WWE’s returning NBC tradition, Saturday Night’s Main Event, as well as the upcoming “Draft Lottery” special edition of Monday Night RAW, One Night Stand did exactly what its name entails, and stood out amongst the endless WWE events that we seem to be fed nowadays, as the superstars that participated in the event … took the wrestling, as well as their bodies, to the extreme.

    The PPV took place within the confines of the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, and as always, was broadcasted live to a world-wide audience. “Famous” by Puddle of Mudd served as the official theme song for the event.


    Stretcher Match: Randy Orton vs. Rob Van Dam (RAW, ECW)

    Last month at Judgment Day, Randy Orton, after having attacked Shawn Michaels prior to their match, completely destroyed the Heart Break Kid physically as well as mentally in a match that should never have happened, culminating in the possible end of Michael’s professional career. Rob Van Dam, disgusted at Orton’s actions, tried to put the cocky RAW superstar in his place, but instead the ECW extremist was left on the receiving end of a major concussion. Coming into their Stretcher Match at ONS, RVD was far from 100%, and Orton capitalized on Van Dam’s woozy state, targeting his head and knocking RVD out even more senseless than when he came in. The match ended, however, with RVD somehow pulling off the win by knocking the Legend Killer onto the stretcher and pushing him past the finish line. In a fit of rage after having lost, Orton attacked RVD from behind, gave the extreme superstar a sickening punt kick to the head, and then finished him off with a DDT off the barricade, slamming his head and neck straight into the concrete floor. After medics and trainers rushed to give RVD aide, the winner of the match, ironically, was the one who ended up being carried out on a stretcher. My Match Rating:

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Tables Match: CM Punk, Tommy Dreamer, and The Sandman vs. The New Breed (ECW)

    The war between the ECW Originals and the New Breed raged on with a couple of major changes … for one thing, the New Breed has since lost a member in the vampire Kevin Thorn, and CM Punk, who less than two months prior had sworn his allegiance to the New Breed, now fought against them on the opposing side. Hoping to crush both of the Originals as well as the traitorous Punk, Elijah Burke, leading Matt Striker and “The Alpha Male” Marcus Cor Von, hoped to gain the victory in a match that saw superstars using tables as well as other foreign objects as brutal weapons of pain and destruction. In the end, however, it was CM Punk who gained the victory for his team, as he superplexed Matt Striker off of the top turnbuckle onto a table already carrying Elijah Burke, being held in place by Dreamer, as both Striker and Burke were sent crashing through the table, ending the match in favor of Punk and the ECW Originals.

    Ladder Match for the World Tag Team Championship: The Hardys vs. The World’s Greatest Tag Team (RAW, Smackdown!)

    Matt and Jeff Hardy successfully defended their World Tag Team Titles in a match that will undeniably go down in history as one of the finest, if not the greatest, ladder matches in wrestling history. And if you know what WWE ladder matches are like, you know that’s saying a whole lot. Although the Hardy Boys are no strangers to ladders, Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas proved their worth as well, as all four competitors utilized the six, 20-ft, steel ladders that were introduced into the match, ramming them into their opponents heads and bodies, throwing their opponents onto as well as into the placed ladders, and of course climbing straight up to the tops of the ladders and flying off into the unsuspecting bodies below. The match of the night saw superstars being brutally flung off ladders, pushed off from the very top, painfully sandwiched in-between two ladders, jumping from one ladder to another, and so much more that absolutely no one in the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena was standing by the end of the match, when the Hardy Boys somehow managed to pull off the win by grabbing the tag team title belts suspended in the middle of the ring. After the match, all four competitors required severe doses of painkillers, and by God did they deserve it.

    My Match Rating:

    6 out of 5 stars (Match of the Night)

    Lumberjack Match: Kane vs. Mark Henry (Smackdown!)

    LUMBERJACKS (in order of entrance): Chris Benoit, Val Venis, Santino Marella, Balls Mahoney, Stevie Richards, The Miz, Kevin Thorn, Chris Masters, Johnny Nitro, Chavo Guerrero, Kenny Dykstra, and Carlito. From the superstars of all three brands who did not compete at ONS, 12 individuals were selected to serve as lumberjacks for this match of pure power and muscle between the “World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry and the “Big Red Machine” Kane. The 400-lb silverback of a man was able to keep the demon of brimstone and hellfire at bay using brute force alone, crushing Kane with a massively powerful and constricting bear hug, and eventually squeezing the life out of the Big Red Machine to win the match. At ONS Mark Henry took the life out of the demon Kane, just as he did weeks prior in his return to Smackdown! when he cost Kane’s brother the Undertaker his World Heavyweight Championship.

    My Match Rating:

    Street Fight for the ECW Championship: Mr. McMahon (with Shane McMahon and Umaga) vs. Bobby Lashley (ECW, RAW)

    The on-going feud between the Chairman of WWE, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, and the former ECW Champion Bobby Lashley, which had started several months ago thanks to the involvement of Donald Trump prior to WrestleMania 23, finally came to an end at ONS. Five weeks prior, at Backlash, Mr. McMahon defeated Lashley in a controversial win to become the new ECW Champion, and although Lashley was unsuccessful at Judgment Day, he finally overcame McMahon’s political advantage by surviving the onslaught of Mr. McMahon, Shane McMahon, and the Samoan Bulldozer Umaga. Even a Coast-to-Coast from Shane following his patented “flying without wings” leap wasn’t enough to keep the resilient Lashley down, who returns to the Land of Extreme as champion once again.

    My Match Rating:

    3 out of 5 stars

    Divas Pudding Match: Melina vs. Candice Michelle (RAW)

    It had been years since WWE held a Pudding Match, but the infamous bout made a return at ONS, as Candice Michelle took on the Women’s Champion Melina in a non-title match that saw both Divas throw down in a 1000-gallon tub of pudding wearing bikinis made for swimming in chocolate. Melina, who had recently chosen Candice as her latest target of jealousy, once again got what was coming to her. After quite a bit of rolling around and getting “good and covered” in chocolate pudding, Candice picked up the win over Melina and proved herself worthy of competing for the Women’s Title. Maria joined in afterwards for a roll-around in the tub. My Match Rating:

    2 out of 5 stars

    Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Edge vs. Batista (Smackdown!)

    In what turned out to be the second greatest match of the night, the Rated R Superstar Edge faced the Animal, Batista, hungry for his world title, in a 15-foot high steel cage in a battle that saw the brutalizing of both superstars. In the rematch for the WHC, both superstars utilized the unforgiving steel as a weapon, as Edge took opportunities to spear Batista right into the wall of the cage, and Batista took great pleasure in slinging Edge’s body into the steel, cracking him open. In the end, however, it was the calculating Edge, claiming that he was not intimidated by the Animal, who outsmarted the Animal, low-blowing Batista not once, but twice, which was followed by the Animal falling groin-first into the ring ropes. Ouch. Edge, like a snake, quickly scaled the wall of the cage and reached the top, just as Batista tried to crawl towards the cage door. As Edge began to climb out of the cage on the other side, Batista continued to crawl towards the opening. And although the Animal came incredibly close to exiting the cage and reclaiming his World Heavyweight Championship, it was Edge’s feet that touched first, allowing him to once again retain his stolen championship. My Match Rating:

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Falls Count Anywhere Match for the WWE Championship: John Cena vs. The Great Khali (RAW)

    Yes, indeed this Pay-Per-View ended in the exact same way that the past three PPVs have all ended – with the WWE Champion John Cena retaining his title. People who saw this coming are not psychic or gifted with premonitions – they’re simply not morons. At Judgment Day last month, John Cena retained the WWE Championship against the Great Khali in a somewhat controversial submission, as Khali’s feet, which had been touching the ropes, went unnoticed by the referee, resulting in his tap-out to the STFU. At ONS, Cena silenced all doubters once again when he went toe-to-toe with the near-8-ft giant in a Falls Count Anywhere Match, one that took both superstars to the top of a construction crane near the entryway. It was at this moment that Cena decided to defy the laws of physics, as he put the giant monster on his shoulders and slammed him down in an F-U from the top of the crane 12 feet down to the concrete floor below. Cena proceeded to cover the Great Khali for the win and once again continued his ceaseless reign as the WWE Champion. That’s right, because amazingly enough, at the end of One Night Stand, even after defending his title at countless WWE shows, events, and Pay-Per-Views, the champ John Cena … “was still here.”

    Kane vs. Marck Henry Lumber Jack Match

    This was a wild match up between two power houses. Chavo and Dykstra run in the ring before Kane can pin Henry and they get a choke slam for there efforts. but Henry catches Kane off guard and makes him give up in a bear hug.

    CM PUNK/Tommy Dreamer/The Sandman vs Elijah Burke/Matt Striker/Marcus Cor Von Six Man Tag Team Tables Match

    The Hardy Boys(c) vs. The Worlds Greatest Tag Team Ladder Match For the World Tag Team Title Match

    This had to be the best match of the night. both teams showed just why they are in there prime. it was a real shame to see any of this teams lose this match.

    Bobby Lashley vs. Mr. McMahon Street Fight for the ECW Title Match

    Lashley had to go through alot to win this match. This match turned out to be a glorified handicaped match. But Lashley fought through it all and pinned the chairman to win his title back.

    WWE Championship John Cena(c) vs. The Great Kali Falls Count Pin Any Where

    This was a preety good main event. Cena and Kali beat the crap out of each other. But Cena basiclly took alll the that Kali could dish out and some how FU'd him off a fork lift.

    Overal this is a great payperview. and is worth the money. if you like brutal action mixed in with contavery this is the payperview to get.moreless
