Mediocre show that is saved by a good main event
Match 1: Chris Benoit & The Hardys vs Montel Vontavious Porter & MNM - This match opens the show in a sort of good way. The Hardys vs MNM had been so overdone already, that you almost wanted the match to be over when the first bell rang. The match was alright, as I said earlier. In the end The Hardys & Benoit get the victory.
Match 2: Cruiserweight Open for the Cruiserweight Championship - This could have easily been one of the best matches of the night, but they really didn't work with it that well. So many people were just ready to see Gregory Helms drop the damn belt. It looked like WWE was pushing Jimmy Wang Yang, as Yang scored what we thought was the final victory and won the title. Although Chavo Guerrero comes out as an unannounced participant and wins the title from Yang.
Match 3: The Boogeyman & Little Boogeyman vs Finlay & Little Bastard (Hornswoggle) - A match that was meant to be played off as a comedic match. It truthfully was one of the worst matches of the night. Finlay is a talented guy, he shouldn't be reduced to horrid comedy attempt matches like this. In the end Finlay & Little Bastard get the win.
Match 4: King Booker vs Kane - For what it was, it was a good match. Two top World Title Contenders on SmackDown going at it. Kane deserves a lot more than he gets with WWE. The match was overall very good and culminated this short feud in a good way. In the end Kane lands a chokeslam on Booker for the win, which I was surprised to see happen.
Match 5: Paul London & Brian Kendrick (c) vs Deuce 'n Domino for the WWE Tag Team Championship - A poor match. London & Kendrick are a great team, but Deuce 'n Domino really was never worth anything during their time in WWE. Their gimmick grew old within one month of them being on SmackDown. In the end London & Kendrick retain to keep their long title reign going.
Match 6: Bobby Lashley (c) vs Mr. Kennedy for the ECW Championship - A very bad match with absolutely nothing going for it. Kennedy is a pretty good performer, but Lashley had no chemistry with him. They were just lost throughout this entire match. In the end Lashley gets disqualified, but keeps the ECW title. It was really a match we all could have done without.
Match 7: Batista & The Undertaker vs John Cena & Shawn Michaels - It was really the only match that saved this show. While some other matches were good, this was the best of them all. The four guys involved did some very fantastic stuff. Crowd was really behind the veterans, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels. In the end Batista leaves Undertaker. Cena then hits Undertaker with an FU for the win.
