    A very watchable Pay Per View...not great but very watchable...hers the run of matches

    1. Ric Flair Vs Carlito(Champ)IC TITLE MATCH

    7.5/10 ...not a great technical match but flairs keeps the crowd going with his hilarious antics and his constant woooos.enjoyable match for flair fans.

    2. Ashley and Trish Vs Torrie and Victoria.

    6/10 ..Trish Stratus performance in this match was incredible considering it was her first match back from a long lay off , she is actually better in ring then some MALE SUPERSTARS..she was unbelievable, same cannot be said for ashley who i know is still learning but she was WOEFUL victoria and torrie were there usual selves.i don't usually enjoy womens matches because of the wrestling but this one i did only because of TRISH ...they all looked hot by the way

    3. Big Show Vs Snitsky

    5/10 as i expected very slow paced..not a great match ..a raw match if u ask me, shows shhhhhhhhhhhushes and chops are the only bright sparks.

    4. Shelton Benjamin Vs Kerwin White(CHAVO GUERRERO)

    6/10 These two can do better, due to shelton selling a knee injury we didn't get to see him do any high flying moves, but a decent match nevertheless.

    5. Matt Hardy Vs Edge

    8.5/10 After this Matt hardy should never go back to mid card, his performance was superb the crowd were so into him it was untrue, i actually think lita cheating on him has helped his career big time . great match with a super move to end it.Lita gets the twist of fate as well which is swell.

    6. Murdoch and Cade Vs Hurricane and Rosey(Saddoes) TAG CHAMPS

    3/10 Poor match as expected , tag titles mean nothing anymore , hurricane sold a neck injury which nobody cared about, the only good things were laughing at Murdochs mean grin,which i find amusing. Crowd looked like they were going to die of boredom half way thru.

    7. Shawn Michaels Vs Chris Masters

    7/10 Not one of HBK best, due to his opponent,but still relatively enjoyable as hbk keeps the crowd involved and puts on a good display ,i like masters gimmick but in ring don't really feel him.

    8. Kurt Angle Vs JOHN CENA(THE MAN, THE CHAMP, GREATEST THING SINCE AUSTIN)WWE Championship Match 9/10 Once again all the cena haters have been proved wrong, once again cena performs at a pay per view for the umpteenth time.angle as usual was amazing, great match love it when these two face off they work so well together, ending was a bit disappointing though , but that didn't stop the match from being the best of the night.

    1) Ric Flair vs. Carlito (for the intercontinental title). Flair fans will love this one, but I found it poor, relying more on the wrestlers' gimmicks than on the wrestling itself. I also can't see the point of giving the IC title to an old man instead of younger talent that needs to be pushed (not necessarily Carlito). *1/2

    2) Trish and Ashley vs. Victoria and Torrie. When Trish or Victoria or both are in the ring, it's good (yes, Trish comes off better, but if you look closely it's obvious that she wouldn't have done anything without Victoria's help). Ashley, who is still training, takes a few bumps but also does some things that make no sense...Torrie, disappointingly, does next-to-nothing. **

    3) Big Show vs. Gene Snitsky. A surprisingly enjoyable match. Snitsky's strategy to focus on Big Show's right arm is a solid one, and Show's offense, although limited, is fun to watch. Say what you want about Snitsky, he's one of the few men who can stand next to the Big Show and look like they have a legitimate chance of winning. **1/2

    4) Chavo Guerrero vs. Shelton Benjamin. Once you get past the lame "Kervin White" gimmick (which the commentators never do), this is a fast-paced match with good, complex moves by both wrestlers. **1/2

    5) Edge vs. Matt Hardy (Steel Cage Match). An intense match-up, with some hits that look (and sound) as if they are connecting, and some great high spots. Better than I though it would be. ***

    6) Cade and Murdoch vs. Hurricane and Rosey (for the tag-team title). H+R were an enjoyable team, but this filler match is hurt by obvious crowd indifference. **

    7) Chris Masters vs. Shawn Michaels. Disappointing match, Masters shows potential, HBK needs to cut down the overselling a bit. **

    8) John Cena vs. Kurt Angle (for the WWE title). Angle once again proves his versatility by combining a street-fighting style (to match with Cena's) with his unique (at least in the WWE today) freestyle ground wrestling. But the messy DQ ending draws boos from the crowd and spoils what could have been a great main event. ***

    Overall a pretty solid PPV, better than "Vengeance" in my opinion, though we COULD have done without the shot of Flair's butt.

    When WWE announced that Flair would be challenging Carlito for the Intercontinental Championship and Shawn Michaels would be battling Chris Masters at Unforgiven I was expecting the old guys to lay down for the younger talent. I believed WWE was trying to create stars out of the up and comers by showing them as real rivals to the veterans. How wrong I was.

    To make new stars the old stars need to be helping out. What good did it do Chris Masters at all to be lying down for HBK? What good is it for WWE to have the Intercontinental Championship on sixteen time World Heavyweight Champion Ric Flair? I guess this title change was to help out with the upcoming feud between Flair and the returning Triple H. The matches themselves were good. HBK's chin music on Masters to end their contest was an absolute belter and Flair finally hit a move off the top rope. I've been watching wrestling since 1992 and I don't think I've ever witnessed that before.

    Another ending that didn't make sense was the crazy finish in the WWE Championship match. the match itself was good (nothing special) but the ending let it down and in my opinion let the event down. You don't want to be ending a pay-per-view like that.

    One ending that did make sense was Matt Hardy picking up the win in the Steel Cage match with Edge. This was a fantastic match, best match these two have had in years and the crowd was right into it. The leg-drop finish from the top of the cage was a mega move way to end this contest. The feud between the two had seemed pretty lame and disappointing up until this point. These two stole the show.

    A good event by WWE but had the potential to be a lot better.
  • Unforgiven was just another passable PPV, some of the matches were crap.

    Results from the PPV:

    • Ric Flair defeated Carlito to win his first Intercontinental Championship. Even though I'm not a fan of Flair, this has got to be better than having Calito as IC Champ.

    • The Big Show pinned Snitsky in a good match.

    • Matt Hardy pinned Edge in a fantastic cage match.

    • Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch defeated The Hurricane and Rosey to win the WWE tag team titles. At last The Super Heroes have lost the titles!

    • Trish Stratus and Ashley defeated Torrie Wilson and Victoria in a useless match.

    • Shelton Benjamin pinned Chavo.... oh sorry Kerwin White in a fair match.

    • Shawn Michaels pinned Chris Masters in a good match.

    • Kurt Angle defeated WWE Champion John Cena via DQ.

    WWE could really need Triple H, Kane and Chris Jericho right now!

    Overall Grade - C+

    Shelton Benjamin vs. Kerwin White - Solid match but Shelton selling a knee a injury put limitations on this match

    Trish & Ashley vs. Victoria & Torrie

    The Hurricane & Rosey vs. Cade & Murdoch for the tag titles - I enjoyed this match. Hurricane took a couple bad shots.

    Big Show vs. Snitsky - For 2 big men their sizes, this was a great match.

    Edge vs. Matt Hardy in a Cage Match - This match was insane!

    Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Masters - I love HBK but every time I watch this I fall asleep midway through the match. The ending is good though.

    Ric Flair vs. Carlito for the Intercontinenal Championship

    John Cena vs. Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship - Decent match, better than the one they had @ No Way Out 2005.

    There were some funny backstage celebrating with Ric Flair. This was probably the last great ppv they had in 05.
  • Warning: Spoilers
    I generally enjoyed this Raw PPV as it had cool matches & some shocking moments which definitely have to be seen to be believed.

    FIRST MATCH- RIC FLAIR VS. CARLITO FOR THE WWE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP Pretty good match between Flair & Carlito. Both men did pretty well which also featured Flair jumping off the top rope for the first time in his wrestling career. Flair makes Carlito tap out to the Figure 4 Leg Lock to win & win the IC Title for the first time in his career. 5/10 SECOND MATCH- TRISH STRATUS & ASHLEY VS. VICTORIA & TORRIE Wilson Not a bad Diva's tag team match. Great to see Trish return & not as a heel anymore. Also great to see Ashley team up with a better Diva like Trish. Trish & Ashley win after Trish nails Victoria with the Chick Kick for the win. 3/10 THIRD MATCH- BIG SHOW VS. GENE SNITSKY Not bad for a big man vs. big man match. Snitsky tries to topple down the Big Show with everything he can, but it is not enough as Big Show nails Snitsky with the Chokeslam for the win. 4/10 FOURTH MATCH- MATT HARDY VS. EDGE W/ LITA Probably the best Steel Cage match I have ever seen. Both men tried to take some risks with high flying moves, but in the end Matt went right on top of the Steel Cage & nailed a Leg Drop right from the top cage on Edge & pinned him for the victory. {Edge was busted upon during the match}. 6/10 FIFTH MATCH- SHELTON BENJAMIN VS. KERWIN WHITE Wasn't really bad, but could of been better if they had more time to try & wrestle a better match. 3/10 SIXTH MATCH- LANCE CADE & TREVOR MURDOCH VS. ROSEY & HURRICANE FOR THE WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP Don't know why, but I seriously enjoyed this tag team match. Both Rosey & Hurricane did well against the newcomers, but Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch nailed a cool double team move on Hurricane, {Don't really know how to describe the move} & pinned him for a 3 count for the win & for them to win the World Tag Team Titles. 5/10 SEVENTH MATCH- SHAWN MICHAELS VS. CHRIS MASTERS Chris Masters definitely has great charisma when going in the ring against some top WWE Superstars like Shawn Michaels here. Masters grounds Michaels with some strong grapple moves but it still isn't enough as Michaels nails the Sweet Chin Music for the 3 count to win & end Masters winning streak once & for all. 5/10 EIGHT MATCH- KURT ANGLE VS. JOHN CENA FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP Pretty good match between Angle & Cena. Although their match at No Way Out was a bit more better, this was still a good one but did not end in a right way. Cena nails Angle with the WWE Championship Belt while the referee caught him & disqualified him. After the match both Angle & Bischoff try to attack Cena, but Cena fights both of them off, gives Bischoff an F-U, then gets Angle & F-U's him through the announce table as the PPV goes off the air. 5/10 Wasn't really a bad PPV at all. This year's was definitely better than last year's Unforgiven PPV.

    Overall: I'll give it 7/10 & a C

    After clips of the Angle/ Cena feud, Unforgiven 2005 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma starts. Match 1: Ric Flair Vs. Carlito for the International Championship. Overall a pretty lackluster match, but Flair won the belt so I guess that counts for something. 4 stars out of 10. The Nature Boy then goes into a speech and pulls some plants, excuse me um..real paying attendants *wink* out of the audience. Lita talks to Edge while messaging his neck. Match 2: Tori Wilson and Victoria Vs. Trish Stratus and Ashley. I hate hate HATE women's matches as they always suck balls. This one was no exception. Trish Stratus & Ashley won, but really no one wins when there's a woman in there wrestling if you know what I mean and I think you do. 1/10. In the best segment of the PPV thus far, Flair pulls out a bottle of Viagra, after he leads the 4 girls into his limo. WOOOOOO!!! an ad for WWe Raw moving to the USA network. Dusty Hill & Billy Gibbons are introduced in the audience. Match 3: Big Show Vs. Gene Snitsky. Show manhandles Snitsky for most of the match (Snit does get a few good moves in) and Show ends up winning, hitting him one last time post-match 3/10 An ad for Wrestlemania is shown. Back at Flair's limo steam is coming off it. (it was stupid, they should have quit the joke while it was funny). Clips of the Shawn Micheal/ Chris Masters feud. Match 4: Kerwin White vs Shelton Benjamin. Not a fan of Chavo's new gimmick, but not a fan of Shelton at all. But he won anyway 3/10. Matt Hardy is interviewed about his upcoming match. Scenes of the Matt/ Edge feud. Match 5: Edge Vs. Matt Hardy in a Cell match. A pretty good match (but lets face it anything half-decent would look good after the previous 4 matches of the PPV) I think I liked the Summerslam match better though. 7/10. Bishoff yells at Cena as Edge crawls up the ramp to backstage. Match 6: Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch Vs.Hurricane and Rosey for the Tag Team championship belt. Slow, lame, and boring, but hey at least it wasn't a womens' match. Lance & Trevor, but who cares? 2/10 We're back at Flair's limo YET AGAIN (overkill) as a lady comes out wearing Nature Boy's robe. Chris Masters is interviewed briefly about his upcoming match. Match 7: Chris Masters vs. Shawn Michaels. I like Masters, I think he has potential that being said, i love HBK. They both give a pretty good match, nothing too flashy but solid enough. HBK wins. 8/10 Back to Flair AGAIN (PLEASE STOP). Another ad for Raw on USA. Clips of the Cena/Angle feud. Match 9: John Cena vs. Kurt Angle for the championship, which was alright, but judging by reaction to it was a tad overrated. Cena is still champ due to a disqualification on Angle 7/10. Unforgiven events have been pretty lackluster events in the last half decade or so and all in all this doesn't change that dubious streak.

    Overall Grade: C-
