WWE Revenge Tour 2009
April 22nd 2009
Evan Bourne vs. Tyson Kidd
? Could see Evan warming up backstage at least 25 minutes before the match began.
? Really solid opener, both men impressed me, with Evan taking same bumps as he does on TV.
? Bright future ahead for both these guys, Evan using his impressive finisher for the win.
Winner: EVAN BOURNE
6 Diva Tag Match
Bella Twins, Gail Kim vs. Maryse, Katie Lea & Natalia
? The crowd was dead for this match all the way through, apart from Maryse entrance of course?
? Katie Lea didn?t get the reaction I thought she would being from the UK.
? The Bella Twins did most of the work in this one, with Gail coming in for the last 2 minutes to clean house.
Winner: BELLA TWINS & GAIL KIM
WWE US Title: Triple Threat Match
MVP vs. R-Truth vs. Shelton Benjamin
? R Truths entrance is great, just not when you got a 6 year old next to you shouting ??Whats Up?? every 4 seconds.
? Easily the best match of the night so far, MVP did actually look alittle out of it, with Shelton & R Truth doing 80% of the in ring work.
? MVP your winner with his usual finisher, a decent match but at times it was pointless having a Triple Threat as it was Shelton vs. R Truth for most of the contest
Finaly vs. Mark Henry
? First time I have seen Mark Henry live, and yes he is massive.
? Finlay used everything that can be found under a WWE Ring, namely garbage cans and a tool kit.
? After pushing Hornswoggle over, Henry turned and was hit in the head with a garbage can for the win.
Jack Swagger vs. Christian
? Missed Swaggers entrance, to busy buying a coke, but it sounded like he got a lot of heat.
? Very solid match, at least 4 near falls for Christian.
? Swagger wins it with his belly to back suplex
Winner: JACK SWAGGER
Brother vs. Brother
Jeff Hardy vs. Matt Hardy
? Crowd went nuts for this one, Matt got booed out the building, and Jeff got a heroes welcome?
? Jeff totally carried the match, Matt was struggling bit time, and seemed to be moving very awkwardly.
? Jeff hit a great Swanton Bomb to win the match.
Winner: JEFF HARDY
3 On 2 Handicap Match
Legacy vs. Triple H & Undertaker
? Orton made his entrance, Triple H chased him up the ramp, and Randy disappeared for 15 minutes.
? Triple H took most of the beating, Undertaker was going nuts on the ring apron, and crowd popped bit time for his entry into the match.
? Very cool finish, Taker & Hunter hitting the pedigree and the tombstone at the same time?
Winners: TRIPLE H & UNDERTAKER
1. TRIPLE H
3. JEFF HARDY
1. MATT HARDY
2. RANDY ORTON
3. SHELTON BENJAMIN
MATCH OF THE NIGHT
JACK SWAGGER vs. CHRISTIAN
My first visit to a Smackdown/ECW Show, being a RAW fan I wasn?t sure who was going to perform, but with seeing Triple H, Undertaker, Legacy, both Hardys, Christian & MVP? I?m a happy boy.
Evan Bourne has a big future ahead of him, the question of him burning out might be bought up as he doesn?t hold anything back at all.
Tried explaining to my girlfriend that pink and the Harts just go together, still working on that one.
Jack Swagger and Christians match was excellent, something like this at Backlash would be a treat to watch.
After the 2nd match, they decided to play DX’s Music and the roof nearly went off?only to stop it 10 seconds after to announce the DX Invasion tour?Got to admit they got us all?Kinda like HBK when he played Bret Harts music in Canada a few years back (maybe 2005?)
Tiffany came down to big ring announcer for the ECW Title match, then gave away 5 DX T Shirts to the crowd.
Matt Hardy struggled big time, and they keep the match grounded a lot? Jeff took all the highspots and Matt limped up the ramp after. Was a treat seeing brother vs. brother, reminded me of 94 Bret vs. Owen?
The main event was great, Undertaker also looked like his was struggling, his knees seemed to be giving him problems, but when he got in the ring he was on fire. Great ending to a great night.
I prefer RAW, but nothing but positives from going to see ECW/Smackdown LIVE?.
