Judgment Day's 10th Edition
J-Man | 06/19/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)
"In my opinion, this 10th editon of the now "scrapped" Judgment Day was its finest. This ppv formulated a solid 3 hours, with the World Heavyweight title match and Jericho/Y2J being the standouts. Nothing was dull, with maybe one exception, but it was easlily forgotten.
John Cena vs. JBL
To my knowledge, this was the first PPV opener for John Cena since his battle with the Big Show at WrestleMania 20, so this was a suprise for us wrestling fans. It wasn't a pleasent suprise, but a decent one. Fact of the matter is, all John Cena & JBL matches are tippically the same, with the exception of their outstanding I Quit Match, which was really a "diamond in the rough" in the JBL/Cena series. The match consists of JBL dominating cena, with a slow pace, which makes this match kind of boring. This match isn't bad when you watch it a few times, i've come to like it a little more each view. I've yet to see someone horribly trash this match, so this one is decent at best. 3.5/5
WWE Tag Team Championship
John Morrison & The Miz vs. CM Punk & Kane
Morrison and Miz have gone different directions now, but looking back on this match, it reminded me of how well Miz & Morrison tagged with each other. Punk and Kane were not a bad combination as well. The only problem with this match would be its time, if this match would have extended, it could have great. 3.75/5
Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels
If you have seen the other Jericho/HBK matches, you know these two have great chemistry in the ring with each other. This was no different. The one thing that stood out from all the other encounters between these two was the crowd. At points, they really did not know who to cheer for, which made me get into the match alot. You see a nice display of wrestling between these two as always, as this is one of the night's best. 5/5
Triple Threat Match for the Women's Championship
Mickie James vs. Beth Phoneix vs. Melina
If WWE still put on Women's matches such as this, the division would be fairly sucessful. In a way, this compares to the tag match, because this match itself, aslo did not get enought time, but it was good for what it is worth. 3.5/5
Vacant World Heavyweight Championship
Undertaker vs. Edge
How do they do it? These two put on 3 straight epic encounters and would later put on two more match of the year bouts. This match made me appreciate the slow, medatholical pace, as it had a slow build, but as it went on, further to the climax, i was standing on my feet just watching the dvd. These two used a solid display of slow ringwork, takedowns, and nice reversals, which was a very nice suprise. Seeing that the stipulation was that taker could not use his "hells gate" submission, they worked very well with the false finishes and other submission type moves. If you can get past the unsatisfying ending, this match resembles a classic. 5/5
Jeff Hardy vs. MVP
This was Judgment Day's bonus match. This was really the only match i didn't like to well, because it just felt rushed. The ending was a bit messed up and almost heavily botched. This was a decent display, but there are more cons than pros. 3.25/5
Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship
Triple H vs. Randy Orton
Some critics said this was a pointless rematch because of the result factor, but when you look at it from a Wrestling standpoint, this was very necessary. Its safe to say that this isn't Triple H and Orton's best match with each other and its safe to say this rivalry was stale, but with all the cons, the pros seem to outweigh it. Here, your not going to get a bloodbath, yet you get that intense feel, with all around good wrestling and good use of the cage. This is a match where you either like it or you dont, but in my opinion, it was not a waste of time. 4/5"
The 10th Edition Of Judgment Day
D.P. | California | 07/29/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"John Cena vs. J.B.L. - Wow, Cena in the opening match of a PPV? That's the first time in almost 4 years. Cena injured his shoulder early the match revolved around J.B.L. just working on Cena's shoulder & his ribs with Cena having to rely on his power. This wasn't a "get the crowd fired up" opener as it had a slow pace to it but if you can get past that & the "out of nowhere" FU finish, this was actually a good match between the two & as I stated, their second best match they've when compared to the other three that I've seen from them (haven't seen the Bash match yet)...with the first one being at this exact same PPV 3 years earlier.
WWE Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz vs. Kane & CM Punk - A short match that was very good mix with all four men putting on good performances with the only draw back being that they weren't given more time.
Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Jericho - Eventhough this match didn't have the emotional story attachment to like their previous one, this match is right up there with their WM19 match in my opinion as they performed such a great wrestling match with each man countering each other's moves & even displaying a couple of rarely seen moves like Jericho's own mix of an indian...oops, I mean "native american" deathlock & a figure four and HBK doing an armbar while hanging over the top to yank the arm down. One heavily athletic contest.
Womens Champion Mickie James vs. Beth Phoenix vs. Melina - This match was too short (around 5 mins.) to really turn into anything special but it was a nice match for what it was. The real moment to check out is the double backbreaker on Mickie & Melina by Beth...that was heavily impressive.
World Heavyweight Championship Match: Undertaker vs. Edge - Just like their matches at WrestleMania & Backlash, this was a match that just got better as it went on with great wrestling & countering/kicking out of each other's holds back & forth with the story of Undertaker not allowed to use "that choke hold" coming into play during the match. I can say that these two have not had a bad one on one match & this is no exception if you can get past the ending.
Jeff Hardy vs. MVP - Well, we get a bonus match here. For the most part, MVP grounded Jeff from doing his daredevil offense & worked on his arm to the point where Jeff went for a leapfrog out the corner & dropped straight to the floor because of the bad arm. In the end, Jeff gets the win "out of nowhere" with the Wisper In The Wind(that he barely connected with for anyone paying close attention).
Steel Cage Match: WWE Champion Triple H vs. Randy Orton - This was one of those steel cages that wasn't a bloody hardcore massacre but still a that got intense at certain moments with a chair even getting involved later on in the bout. Another good match between the two but it doesn't top the earlier matches in their series.
In the end, this was the best overall Judgment Day card since the 2001 edition. There wasn't a real bad match on here, nothing really to skip over, and the only drawbacks being that some matches could have went longer than they did. In the end, this is one you should go out of your way to see based on the inring action that will leave you satisfied & I highly recommend."
