"I guess I shouldn't have expected much from a random PPV event from 2003, but I got it anyway. I was expecting lots of raw power wrestling, brutality from Evolution, and I got that, so I can't say I was disappointed there, but there were plenty of other disappointments to bring this down a star/star and a half.
Mark Henry vs Booker T Oh wow... any match you put Mark Henry in tends to be an utter disaster. He's unbelievably fat and so stiff it's impossible to see him doing much more than squinting his beady little eyes till they're invisible beneath those massive rolls of fat, and go and hug someone in a "bearhug". Booker T couldn't do anything as he was being dominated by Henry and his five moves of doom. (0/10)
Randy Orton vs Rob Van Dam Randy Orton can wrestle! And Rob Van Dam is one of a kind. Putting them in here together is a chance for stellar happenings. Unfortunately, the momentum of the match was brought to a screeching and disgustingly disappointing halt many many many times by Randy Orton's lame chokeholds and half-assed, half-hearted submissions, keeping Rob Van Dam down on the ground for minutes at a time, dragging the match to a total stop while the fans boo. I'm sure if smarter fans populated the arena, you'd have "WE WANT WRESTLING" chants being hurled at Orton. If it was just Orton trying to sell the whole "Evolution is evil and I'm evil" angle, he could've done something other than ruin what could have been the best match of the night. (7/10 and that's being generous)
Chris Jericho and Christian vs Lita and Trish Stratus Lol. That's sort of the reaction I had to this sort of match. Since WWE refuses to have their Women's division be anything more than eye candy with five actual wrestling moves, this one disappointed. Really there was little redeeming factors here---Trish slaps, and Lita does some Hurricanranas, and the boys just sort of taunt the girls and do a few moves. (3/10)
Shawn Michaels vs Batista I'm not usually one to like power wrestlers like Batista, but he just really sold his skill and charisma, and became every inch the "Animal" of Evolution, that I fell in love with him, and made me a fan of his power style. He works great as a heel, and doesn't particularly work as the face he is now, dressing in those cheap suits and sunglasses and making dorky speeches about "yknow i respect the undertaker, an i love him and such, but i want the dubdubee heavyweight title, yknow?". Michaels is his usual self, and carries Batista greatly. (8/10)
Maven vs Matt Hardy No match. Nothing started, no pins. Maven and Matt Hardy fight on the outside while Batista fumes in the ring at his loss, then Maven is thrown in and destroyed by Batista. Matt tries to pin him but no referee will count. Not a match.
Tag Team Turmoil Match La Resistance vs The Hurricane and Rosey vs Garrison Cade and Mark Jindrak vs The Dudley Boys (C) vs Scott Steiner and Test vs Batista and Ric Flair This match varied on who was fighting. Some teams like Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade were on fire and really fueling the match, whereas other teams like Steiner (steroids) and Test just brought it to a stop. Test does some power wrestling, but Steiner quite literally does nothing distinguishable as wrestling. An elbow drop or two, a few slams, nothing really impressive. Batista and Ric Flair are announced at the last minute as the seventh team and they defeat the Dudley Boys for the championship. (7/10)
Women's Championship Match Molly Holly (C) vs Ivory No. Just no. If WWE refuses to make anything of its Women's division, they shouldn't be putting them in matches on pay per view. (0/10)
World Heavyweight Championship Goldberg (C) vs Kane vs Triple H Okay so this one went well all things considered. "All things considered" means taking into account that HHH and Kane teamed up against Goldberg for about 90% of the match, and HHH played the cowardly heel gimmick way too much, panicking at Kane while he made some of his most ugliest faces ever. Goldberg really doesn't get to do much, as maybe midway through the match he's put through the Spanish announcer's table and is out for all but the very end of the match. All in all, it was a bit fun... about enough to be considered a great match for an average TV appearance of RAW. (6.5/10)
All in all... solid. Disappointing, yes, maybe, but solid. Something that I wish we'd see more of in the new WWE modern days where athleticism is sacrificed in the name of predictability and boring talent-less matches."
"I am doing a review on Armageddon 2003 and I use a grading system. Each match recieves a grade and the shows score is determined by dividing the match scores by the number of matches. The grading system is as follows.
Grading E- =0-6.66% E =6.66-13.32% E+ =13.32-19.98% D- =19.98-26.64% D =26.64-33.30% D+ =33.30-39.96% C- =39.96-46.62% C =46.62-53.28% C+ =53.28-59.94% B- =59.94-66.60% B =66.60-73.26% B+ =73.26-79.92% A- =79.92-86.58% A =86.58-93.24% A+ = 93.24-100%
Match One-Booker T Vs Mark Henry-This was a back and forth match which was a good choice for the opener, it had a bit of interference by Theodore Long. Mark Henry is a useless wrestler and shouldn't be here. Booker deserves a lot better then this. Hopefull this is the end of this feud as it was a clean ending. Lots of near falls making this a lot better then you'd think. My rating 6/10.
Match Two-Intercontinental Championship-Special Referee-Mick Foley-RVD(C)Vs Randy Orton-Good match with lots of near falls and action. Foley as ref added just a bit of spice with the future possibility of him vs Randy which would be very good. Randy did a lot of dominating RVD in this match and it was good cocky heel tactics. This was one of the better matches on the card. Hopefully they do this match again down the track with maybe a gimmick match. Very surprise ending which I liked. My rating 7.4/10.
Match Three-Battle Of The Sexes-Trish Stratus & Lita VS Y2J & Christian-First things first why the hell weren't Y2J & Christian put into the tag turmoil match instead of this garbage. This match was poor quality but what can you expect? This whole match absolutely sucked especially the ending which meands this will continue but hopefully this ends it with Trish and Y2J being back together and Matt Hardy returning to gain Lita again. Please WWE give us some matches we can care about. My rating 0/10.
Match Four-Batista Vs Shawn"HBK"Michaels-This all started at Survivor Series when Batista screwed HBK out of saving Austins career. This had the quickness and experience of HBK versing the power of Batista. Batista returned a bit over a month earlier and has rampaged through everyone. Lots of work done on HBK's back in this match. Great ending in this match with a couple of finisher counters in it. My rating 6.25/10.
Match Five-Matt Hardy Vs Maven-Batista was in a foul mood and killed Maven then Matt jumped in the ring and counted a three count for himself and announced himself winner. Killed possibility of a good match. My rating 1/10.
Match Six-Tag Team Turmoil Match-Tag Team Titles-Dudley Boyz(C)Vs Mark Jindrak & Garrison Cade Vs Val Venis & Lance Storm Vs The Hurricane & Rosey Vs La Resistance Vs Test & Scott Steiner-What do you do with lots of misfit wrestlers and many great tag teams? You put them in a tag team turmoil match. This had many good teams and it was solidly built. There are many upsets and surprises in this match especially the ending is a good surprise. So sit back and enjoy many styles of tag team wrestling. My rating 6.35/10.
Match Seven-Womens Championship-Molly Holly(C)Vs Ivory-This was announced on the show. The returning Ivory may be a good wrestler but this just wasn't a good match. My rating 3/10.
Match Eight-Main Event-World Heavyweight Championship-HHH Vs Kane Vs Goldberg(C)-This was an average triple threat match. It was nowhere as good as past triple threat matches and it was a little weird the style. The finish was a little screwed but it still was alright. Hopefully this feud is over once and for all. My rating 7/10.
This show received 370 out of 800 which is 46.25% which is equivelant to a C-. This was an average PPV to end this year on. Hopefully there's better next year."
Triple H wins Triple Threat!!

"Booker T v. Mark Henry I thought this match could have been better. Booker wins anyways.***
Rob Van Dam v. Randy Orton IC Title This was a very good match it is very underrated. Orton wins Evolution's first title of the night.****

Shawn Michaels v. Batista Good match. I liked it. Batista loses his first match of the night.***1/2
Maven v. Matt Hardy Matt Hardy wins this match in 3 seconds. Batista beat the hell out of Maven. Then Matt covered him for the win. It gets **1/2 for the beat down.
La Reistance v. Rosey & Hurricane v. Mark Jindrak & Garrison Cade v. Dudley Boyz v. Scott Steiner & Test v. Ric Flair & Batista World Tag Titles Well,Flair & Batista didn't come down down till the Dudleys eliminated everybody. Then they win the gold for Evolution's second win of the night.****1/2
Molly Holly v. Ivory Women's Title This match was actually good. I thought Ivory was going to win then Molly used the ropes to win.***1/2
Goldberg v. Triple H v. Kane World Title NO DQ This was a decent match considering Evolution interfered. Triple H is the new champ.****

good match,disapointing ending 7.9/10
7) Molly Holly vs Ivory Womens Title
I didnt like it, I see it on RAW and Heat and it was kinda boring. 5/10 8) Kane vs HHH vs Goldberg World Title
at first I thought this match was gonna suck, but I was wrong, the match was pretty godd, infact the best best match of the night, but again a disapointing ending. 9/10 Well maybe one reason almost everyone didnt like this PPV because Evolution won all the gold. I think they should of kept the Hardy/Maven and Ivory/Molly matches out. It would been better. Still not a bad PPV, Ive seen better, but not a bad Raw show."
