-Tajiri/Nunzio vs. Mysterio/Kidman- Came home late on Thursday so didn't see the first 10 minutes, but they replayed the entire match (all 4 minutes) on Afterburn... Very exciting match. Really like Kidman's reversal on Tajiri tornado DDT. Rey went for the 619. Tajiri moves and hits a stiff kick for the pin in what I'd call a surprise win.
-Shaniqua vs. Dawn- I guess they tried to explain Dawn and Torrie, not well but tried LoL. Some bad acting backstage even in these women cases. Nidia saying "Ohh what a brave, brave woman" to Dawn as she left and Torrie nodding LoL, O-kay... Dawn tried an early attack but NO GO. Shaniqua tosses her around and Dawn bumps pretty well. Nidia comes in for the DQ save but no effect Shaniqua is an amazon.com woman. But Torrie hits her with a "vicious" chair shot, it sounded vicious but looked loose. All the faces (if u include Dawn and I guess Nidia faces now) take off Shaniqua gets up and hurls that chair towards them. Good Distance, I think even scared Torrie
-Benoit vs. Rhyno- Good match between these two. Didn't seem like 10 minutes. The sharpshooter always gets a nice pop from Benoit. But he finished Rhyno off with his custom Cross-face. The Albert run-in was pointless
-Eddie vs. Cena- Cena trapped in a middle of cars. Eddie drives in a car and he doesn't run Cena over! LoL. I lawn mower is used by Cena I've can't even begin of thinking that for a fight (never can Tazz but makes a note of it LoL). Backbody drops by the two on the hood of the car; both got their faces through windshields. Some pretty wacky stuff, good brawl. Haven’t' seen one of these over the top gimmick matches in a while. So good effort. Frog splash of the roof of a car to the hood of another was wild. "Ahhh I got a headache,” says Eddie
-APA vs. Moore/Hardy- APA gave nothing to Team Mattitude, might be a good thing seeing how tight APA jeans were, didn't want them to risk splitting them.
-Lesner/Steph Stuff- Steph in the main event again! We seen this sort of stuff already. SD leaves on a downer again this week.
-OtherStuff- I have to say that backstage skit with Brock/ Vince/ Steph and co. might have been the worst dragged out skit ever. Brock was so bad. Bid doofus county boy babyface who doesn't know his own strength worked okay with me. But big doofus smartass heel just ISN'T... Sable taunts Steph... APA poker(face) game, kinda of funny Matt sticking up for the Butler then having Shannon as his gofer.
-Line of the Night: Eddie "Ahh I got such a headache" -3Stars of the Night: 1)Eddie. 2)Kidman. 3)Cena
First hour or so was very entertaining. The last couple of parts felt like just add-ons
I like the idea of Cornette as the commish ex machina. It allows the entire company to reboot their angles, either immediately (LAX) or gradually (the title belt). He provides the audience avatar to clean up the old and tired.
