"3 ON 2 HANDICAPPED TABLES MATCH
FOR WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP
LA RESISTANCE & ROB CONWAY VS BUBBA RAY & D-VON DUDLEY 7/10- Spike was suppose to be in this one but was injured by the frenchmen. Austin made this for the tag titles. not the best tables match but still pretty good.TEST VS SCOTT STEINER(IF STEINER WINS, GETS STACY KEIBLER BACK. IF TEST WINS, GETS STACY & STEINER'S SERVICES) 6/10- not their best match. this feud has been going on since judgment day in may. time to end it,please! ending is what helps this match.MOLLY HOLLY & GAIL KIM VS TRISH STRATUS & LITA 8/10- best women's match in a long time. mainly because of the return of lita. lita shows no ring rust after being out for 1 1/2 yrs.RANDY ORTON VS SHAWN MICHAELS 8/10- a good match between these 2. orton as the legend killer is a good gimmick. evolution is a 2nd rate imitation of the 4 horsemen. ric flair's involvement hurts this match.LAST MAN STANDING MATCH
KANE VS SHANE MCMAHON 9/10- an awesome hardcore match. back & forth action helps it. kane is just brutal in his treatment of shane. this helps his monster gimmick get over even more. ending is worth the price of this dvd.TRIPLE THREAT MATCH FOR INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP
CHRISTIAN VS ROB VAN DAM VS CHRIS JERICHO 8/10- match started out as a bore. action picked up after awhile to make this a good match. several awesome moves in this one. if not for slow start, would have been a 10. JONATHAN COACHMAN & AL SNOW VS JIM ROSS & JERRY LAWLER(WINNERS BROADCAST RAW) 7.5/10- no broadcasters for this one. reminded me of going to a house show. lawler & snow carried this one. thank goodness! j.r. & coach can't wrestle. good entertainment.WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
TRIPLE HHH VS GOLDBERG 8.5/10- a very good match between these 2. crowd was really into it. triple hhh's title reign has been way too long. reminds me of ric flair's days of cheating except flair could actually wrestle. goldberg has lost a step over the years but is still a good performer. ending is awesomwe.overall, was a good ppv. no horrible matches. raw is improving. still no special features. why is wwe cheating the fans?"
Goldberg is champ... finally

"WWE Unforgiven was easily the best "brand-only" ppv this year.1. Dudley's v. La Resistance (handicap table match for tag titles)***
Very entertaning match. The "french" tag team beat the Dudley's way too many times and were the worst tag team champs EVER!
Winner: New Champs Dudley's2.Scott Steiner v. Test**
Someone kill this storyline please! Match was only saved by the chairshot by Stacy to Steiner.
Winner: Test3. HBK v. Randy Orton***1/2
Awesome wrestling match. Sadly, the match was hurt by Flair's constant interference. Winner: orton4.Lita-Trish v. Molly-Gail Kim***
Great tag match. Molly, Trish, and Lita did well, while Gail Kim should learn to wrestle or leave. Winner: Lita-Trish5. Shane v. Kane (Last Man Standing)*****
One of the two BEST matches of the ppv. Very dramatic and brutal
match with a real "holy-s***" ending. Winner: Kane6. Y2J v. RVD. Christian (IC title)****
Awesome triple-treat match. Watck for a spot involving all three wrestlers. Winner: IC Champ Christian7. J.R . and King v. Coach-Al Snow(BORING)
Worst match of the year. 8. Goldberg v. Triple H (World Title)*****
If Goldberg loses, he must retire from wrestling.
The best Raw main event of the year. Crowd was behind Goldberg from the getgo. Goldberg pinnd HHH. to FINALLY end "The Game"
Winner: New World Champ Goldberg."
Triple H falls, but Goldberg rises

"Where do I start with this event?First match, according to some mark-ridden reviews beneath me was "Vewy good, Dudleyz deftee Las Risdftr, LOL LOL, FIVE-STAR MATCH" or something a little more...less sensical.It was a good match, but I'd say a three-star ordeal because of the poor wrestling style of La Resistance.Second match was the only good match between Test and Scott Stiener, their Bad Blood bout by the way was ABYSMAL and only a mark would find it in any way amusing, the finish was pretty decent and the effort form both wrestlers at least made it passable (***)Shawn Michales vs Randy Orton was match of the night, Orton is a god and you WILL bow before his power, the finish was cheap, but very "Four Horsemen" if you used to watch NWA before it became TNA, you'll get what I'm refering to. (****)Kane vs Shane Mcmahon, someone kill Shane Mcmahon please, he nearly made Kane look like a pansy in this match, and for those whose reviews are saying "Kane ruled", HE MOVED ASIDE TO WIN THE MATCH, MOVED ASIDE, he did'nt do ANYTHING to Shane except DUCK (***)Chirstian vs Chris Jericho vs Rob Van Dam (***)A Pointless, yet exciting triple threat match, look for Rob Van Dam's frog splash on Jericho and Chistian and the incredible effort from Chirstian when holding up BOTH RVD and JerichoAl Snow and Johnathan Coachman vs J.R Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler. (DUD)Press Fast Forward, this is'nt a Wrestling match, it's a waste of god damn time.World Title vs Career Match: Triple H vs GoldbergCOuld have been better, Triple H's groin injury prevented al ot of good gorund-based wrestling, plus the fact Goldnerg is an overated pile of crap did'nt help either, the proper finish came with Triple H SELLING the Jackhammer and giving Goldberg a run with the belt, even if he does'nt deserve it.An improved card than Bad Blood, buy it"

"I was at the show in Hershey and still won't be biased and say five stars just because I was there. The truth is it was great, with a couple of downfalls: Dudley Boyz/La Resistance: Very entertaining and fast paced tables match. Nice to have the energy level kick high in the first match.Steiner/Test-for Stacy and Steiner's services: Okay match all things considered. But in MY Opinion it is getting old and time for the rivalry to shift in another direction somehow. I mean it feels like we have seen them every week at odds since Judgement Day back in MAY!HBK/Orton: Slow in the early going and just builds excitement as it goes on as do most HBK matches. Had the potential to be great all around but again, the ending is all too familiar with how Evolution can't seem to get a win without interference from one another. DIVA's tag team match: Not bad. Exciting to see Lita back in action and despite a bloody mouth from the start for Lita; she did a great job trying to follow her gameplan and execute a fairly entertaining match. Last mand standing: Kane/Shan-o-Mac: Best match of the night, I thought! For the record the top of the titantron which Shane jumped from was right in front of me and only about 20 feet (I asked the wwe rigger on site) above the announce platform Shane landed on. So what, 20 feet or 50 feet, I would never have the guts to do that!! Lots of sickening chair shots, and creative moves by Shane to make this an edge of your seat match! ExcellentAnnouncers match: Just awful! Sorry.
Tag Team match: RVD/Jericho/Christian: Not bad at all, but expected more from these three great athletes.Main event: Triple H/Goldberg: Excellent and appropriate way to end the night. I mean what can be said with what was at stake. You knew this one would leave people breathless with the result being either Triple H finally loses the belt or Goldberg leaves wrestling. Very entertaining night and very good variety in match types and styles make this a DVD to own for sure. Even the announcer's match was entertaining for a change of pace, despite the wrestling quality being two thumbs down. Buy this for sure. Thanks, Frank."
