The last ppv of the year does not dissapoint...

"After one of the worst ppvs ever put on [December to Dismember] Armageddon 2006 turned out to be one of the best, if not THE best, Smackdown ppv of the year. Kane defeated MVP in the first Inferno Match out of the last 7 and a half years, a tag team championship match turned into a wild four way ladder match with the introduction of two new teams, Chris Benoit retained the US title once again, and Batista and John Cena teamed up for the first time ever to defeat Booker T and Finlay.
Kane vs. MVP:
The only inferno match that I saw was Kane vs. The Undertaker in the very first one, so I really wanted to see what they would do here. The flames were high; some burst of flame went well over the top ropes. Both men use a lot of brawling and trying to stick the other's face into the flames, but they were limited in what they could do at the beginning of the match. At one point though Kane takes off a turnbuckle cover, lights it on fire, and tries to stick it in MVP's face! MVP also gets thrown off the tope rope and lands on the announce table, Kane follows and throws MVP into the flames and MVP's suit catches on fire! Kane wins. 8/10
WWE Tag Team Championships
Paul London and Brian Kendrick [champions] vs. MNM vs. The Hardys vs. William Regal and Dave Taylor:
What a nice surprise this was! This was a pretty good match considering that five of these men had never been in a ladder match before. A lot of spots in this match, each more painful looking in the last. Jeff and Matt Hardy as usual shine in their death defying moves, crashing into ladders, and all eight men take some harsh punishment. At one moment Kendrick does a double stomp type move to Matt while Matt was lying on a ladder. At one point Joey Mercury looked to have legitimately broken his nose, he was pouring blood. At the end of the match both Matt Hardy and Paul London were on a ladder, but London knocked Hardy off and grabbed the belts and won. 9/10 [Great match, a nice surprise for a WWE ppv.]
The Miz vs. The Boogeyman:
The only good thing about this match is listening to JBL absolutely bury Miz throughout the entire match. Not much of ring work, Miz gets freaked out and The Boogeyman got the win. 3/10
United States Championship Match
Chris Benoit [champion] vs. Chavo Guerrero:
Really good match between these two, longer than their match at Survivor Series, at one point Benoit hit seven german suplexes in a row! Chavo did a lot of counter holds and managed to escape the sharpshooter several times. At the end of the match Vicki grabbed the US belt and forced Benoit to break a hold on Chavo. Benoit teased putting Vicki in the sharpshooter, but put it on Chavo instead and forced Chavo to tap out. 8.5/10
Crusierweight Championship Match
Gregory Helms [champion] vs. Jimmy Wang Yang:
Another great match between two of the best on Smackdown, a lot of good chain wrestling in the beginning and both men were great to watch. Both men get knocked out of the ring and continue to fight inside and outside as they continue to battle. At one point Helms hit a swinging neckbreaker from the top of the rope into the ring! Jimmy went for his finishing move but Helms ducked it and rolled up Jimmy out of nowhere and gets the pin. 8/10 [Could have been longer, but still a good match]
Last Ride Match
The Undertaker vs. Ken Kennedy:
Yet another good match for this ppv. Both men fight all over the arena with chairs, led pipes, and a huge moment as Taker nearly died! They fight near the ringside area and Kennedy uses a chair on Taker and throws him into the hearse, however Taker attacks Kennedy and both men fight on top of the Armageddon stage set that looked like a giant castle. Taker then is thrown off the set and crashes on the floor! They continue to fight and Taker fights back and busts Kennedy open with a chair and slams him on top of the roof of the hearse in a sick moment. Taker tombstones Kennedy and throws him into the hearse and drives outside to win the match. 9/10 [Brutal match, better than the first one two years ago]
Batista and John Cena vs. Booker T and Finlay:
What was this? This was not a good way to end the show. Both Cena and Batista looked bad, both messing up moves that shouldn't have been messed up. The match was short too, barely ten minutes long. Finlay's little friend makes an appearance but Finlay gets taken out with an awful looking suplex by Cena, and then Batista hits an awful looking Batista Bomb, much like the one he gave at Summerslam to Booker T, getting the win. 7/10
Armageddon 2006 is actually the best Smackdown ppv of the year, and a top contender of best ppv of the entire year out of all of them! The Inferno Match/Last Ride Match/US Championship Match/Ladder Match/and Crusierweight Championship match were all well worth it. Although the main event lacked a lot, fans of Batista and Cena will be happy. This is totally recommended, so buy it when it comes out on DVD!

Best PPV of 2006

"Without a doubt, Smackdown delivers the finest pay-per-view the year of 2006 had to offer. Every single match minus one was enjoyable (and even that dud match wasn't *so* bad), and all had amazing moments and most of them had you on the edge of your seats.
Here's my rundown of the matches on this amazing card:
01. Inferno Match: Kane vs. MVP
This was really short, but it served it's purpose - seeing MVP get burnt. Kane set his whole back on fire and watching him run around on fire was shocking. I don't like MVP, so I'm glad Kane won. The most annoying thing about this match was JBL's commentating, I wish that man would just shut up. (8/10)
02. WWE Tag Team Ladder Match: Paul London & Brian Kendrick (c) vs. William Regal & Dave Taylor vs. MNM vs. The Hardyz
Amazing match! I loved how MNM and the Hardyz were added in at the last second and how it was made into a ladder match. All 4 team put on a good show, and the best moment was Jeff Hardy smashing a ladder into Joey Mercury's face - he broke his nose and there was blood everywhere. Paul London & Brian Kendrick picked up the win after Paul London got the belts. Very enjoyable match and one you can watch over and over because you always miss something. (10/10)
03. Boogeyman vs. The Miz
I forget if this was after the ladder match or not, but it doesn't matter because this was the dud of the night. I hate The Miz and he never looks good in the ring. I'm glad the Boogeyman beat him. Skip this, it's the only bad match on the card. (4/10 for the Boogeyman winning)
04. United States Championship Match: Chris Benoit vs. Chavo Guerrero
This was a pretty good match. Chris Benoit is an amazing wrestler, he always looks good in the ring. Chavo is annoying but he's pretty good too. Vickie Guerrero interfering in the match was pointless and unneeded as Chavo and Chris put on a good show on their own. Chris picks up the win deservedly. (8/10)
05. Cruiserweight Championship Match: Gregory Helms vs. Jimmy Wang Yang
I love Jimmy Wang Yang so I enjoyed this match, although he did lose. The Cruiserweights need more recognition, their high-flying antics are entertaining and they always put on a good match. Jimmy put on an amazing show with loads of risky moves, but Gregory picked up the win. (8/10)
06. Last Ride Match: Undertaker vs. Mr. Kennedy
I loved this match - absolutely amazing. The Undertaker is a legend and he can make anybody look good in a match, he carried Mr Kennedy very well. Kennedy put on a tremendous show though - especially when he threw the Undertaker off the set 20 feet down. The best bit of the match was when Kennedy was in the drivers seat of the hearse about to drive it out the ring and the Undertaker sat up behind him. It was like something out of a horror movie, and their facial expressions were priceless. The Undertker wins after a tombstone on the top of the hearse. (10/10)
At this point, the divas (Kristal, Jillian Hall, Layla & Ashley) participated in a lingerie contest with Ashley looking the best. LOL at JBL saying that Santa sucks, that was funny.
07. Batista & John Cena vs. King Booker & Finlay
What a dream team - Batista and John Cena on the same side. This was a great match - Batista and John had great chemistry and worked very well together. There were loads of great spots, like when Hornswoggle (Finlay's little sidekick) kicked himself in the head LOL. Batista and John pick up the win after Batista does a Batista Bomb on King Booker. My favourite moment was when John hugged Batista after the match was over, adorable. (10/10)
This was a very enjoyable and extremely entertaining PPV, and shows that Smackdown knows how to put on a good show. My highlight was the Last Ride match. The only bad bit was Boogeyman vs. The Miz and most of JBL's commentating because he would not shut up about MVP getting burned."
