I expected a little more, but still not a bad show
26 April 2009 | by jts0405See all my reviews

Match 1: Money in the Bank Ladder Match - CM Punk, Kane, Kofi Kingston, MVP, Christian, Mark Henry, Finlay and Shelton Benjamin all do battle for the briefcase. A brilliant start to the show. Finlay was in his element for this match, he dominated the first half with the small step ladder. Then we see some nice ring spots. In the end Christian looks to have it with the rest of the combatants on the floor, but last year's winner CM Punk springboards onto the ladder to stop him. Crowd seemed a little unhappy with that. Kane then ascends the ladder and ends up chokeslamming Christian off. CM Punk then nails Kane with some kicks and knocks him off the ladder. CM Punk then wins the Money in the Bank for the second year in a row.

Match 2: 25 Diva Battle Royal - Crowd was a little bored during Kid Rock's mini-concert and mostly through this match. Santino is disguised in it as Santina, supposedly his twin sister from Italy. The match was dull and the returning divas didn't get their recognition for their return. In the end "Santina" eliminates Beth Phoenix to become Miss Wrestlemania. Pretty funny way to end, but match was pretty dull.

Match 3: Roddy Piper, Ricky Steamboat &Jimmy Snuka vs Chris Jericho in a Handicap Match - I was looking forward to seeing the Legends take the win, but Jericho starts by making Snuka submit. Then Piper gets nailed with the Codebreaker and is eliminated as well. We are down to Steamboat and Jericho. Crowd was extremely behind Steamboat, but just like Piper he gets nailed with the Codebreaker and Jericho wins the match. Crowd hated it, but seeing Mickey Rourke knock out Jericho with a punch picked them back up.

Match 4: Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy (Extreme Rules Match) - A lot of spots in this one, Jeff did most of the work. The double table dive was pretty good and the defining moment of this match. Jeff then brings in two ladders and tries to do a legdrop onto Matt, but he moves. Then probably the coolest thing I ever saw Matt do, a twist of fate with a steel chair around Jeff's neck. After that Matt scores the pinfall.

Match 5: JBL (c) vs Rey Mysterio for the Intercontinental Championship - JBL wanted to deliver a dominating victory and attacked Rey before the match, then when the bell rung Mysterio took over and hit a splash to win the title. Plus Rey Mysterio's attire was the best of the night.

Match 6: Shawn Michaels vs Undertaker - The match of the night and probably the match of the year. They carried the show and dominated all of the other matches on the card. Michaels really looked like he was going to end the streak this year. He kicked out of the first tombstone and honestly Undertaker's facial expression had me laughing hysterically. The diving outside of the ring spots were fantastic and the almost ten count on the Undertaker was brilliant. In the end Michaels goes for a moonsault and gets caught with a tombstone. The Undertaker gets the pin this time and goes 17-0.

Match 7: Edge (c) vs John Cena vs Big Show in a Triple Threat for the World Heavyweight Championship - The better of the two title matches. Big Show dominated early on and was taken out quickly by both Cena and Edge. He then was tied up in the ropes and speared through the guardrail by Edge, but came back into play both times. In the end Cena lifted both men for the Attitude Adjustment. Big Show fell to the mat, but Cena continued by Attitude Adjusting Edge onto the Big Show, knocking him out of the ring in the process. With Big Show down Cena made the cover and reclaimed the World Heavyweight Championship. Better match than expected.

Match 8: Triple H (c) vs Randy Orton for the WWE Championship - A real let down for a main event. Rhodes and DiBiase didn't event try to interfere for Orton, even though they might have been barred from ringside there wasn't even an attempt once the referee was down. Orton performed pretty horribly along with Triple H. The only good thing about this match was Triple H's entrance with the glass in front of him. In the end a sledgehammer came into play, even though Triple H could have been disqualified and lost the title, he hits Orton with the sledgehammer while the ref is down then punches him repeatedly and follows through with a pedigree for the win. Not even a great finish. Orton is all beaten and bruised and Triple H retains the WWE title. Horrible main event.
