No Way Out Review

Sorry for the late review post. This shouldn’t happen again, but if it does, everyone will hear about what happened.

Set looks really cool. One of the best sets I have seen in a while.

Smackdown! Elimination Chamber match for the WWE Championship:Edge(c) vs Undertaker vs Triple H vs Vladomir Koslov vs Jeff Hardy vs Big Show

Wrestlers in the pods: The Undertaker, Big Show, Vladomir Koslov, and Triple H

Starters: Edge and Jeff Hardy

Order of entrants: Edge, Jeff Hardy, Koslov, Big Show, Triple H, Undertaker

Eliminations in order: Edge, Koslov, Big Show, Jeff Hardy, The Undertaker

This is very interesting starting off the match with a major title. I like the idea and its very exciting. The match was good and this is the way you start a pay per view. This really got the crowd excited and interested me in the rest of the show. I felt like I was watching the best match of the night. Triple H wins the title after pinning the Undertaker. 4 out of 5 stars

ECW Championship Match Jack Swagger vs Finlay

This match isn’t entertaining, it’s almost painful. Two minutes into the match and I was bored with it. I like Finlay, but I feel like he deserves better than ECW. I already hate Jack Thwagger. There were “we want Christian” chants heard throughout the match, as there should be. Swagger retains the title by hitting his gutwrench powerbomb. This match came to a merciful end. .5 out of 5 stars

No Holds Barred Match Shane McMahon vs Randy Orton

I always enjoy Shane O’ Mac matches. I have seen everyone and I actually enjoy his role in the matches. Randy Orton is a good wrestler too. This could be a great match. Legacy interference is just unnecessary. I feel like that makes a mochery of how this match could have been. Shane goes coast to coast to dropkick a garbage can to Cody Rhodes. Shane’s top rope miss on Randy Orton made me realize what was going to happen from there. The match is more of a train wreck, but in a good way. I can’t turn away from the match. Orton is a little overzealous in selling the moves, but it works in a strange way. Orton wins after hitting the RKO out of no where. Good match. A show best in another PPV but with two elimination chambers, it is hard for any match to stick out. 3.5 out 5 stars

All or Nothing Match JBL vs Shawn Michaels

This was a good match but just about what I expected. Nothing to out of the ordinary since everyone and their mother knew what was going to happen. Just in case you have no idea, HBK won with a top rope elbow drop. 2.5 out of 5

Raw World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber match

John Cena (c) vs Mike Knox vs Chris Jericho vs Rey Mysterio vs Edge vs Kane

Entrants order: Jericho, Mysterio, Kane, Mike Knox, Edge, John Cena

Elimination order: Kane, Mike Knox, John Cena, Chris Jericho, Mysterio

Kofi Kingston was supposed to be in the spot Edge took, but he attacked Kofi with a chair and took his pod. This took a bit away from the match because Kofi is a fan favorite and I happen to like him a lot. The fans look so confused as to what happened. That and it made the outcome of the Chamber match obvious to me. Kofi gets medical attention and Edge takes his spot. This change made me realize that there will be a Orton/Triple H storyline. It would be terrible if they didn’t and took Kofi’s opportunity away. Edge wins the title and ends No Way Out as a Champion. A match that had a ton of potential, but the change annoyed me and a ton of fans. 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Overall Rating: 2.6 out of 5 stars. The ECW match killed the rating.

Best Match: Smackdown Elimination Chamber match

Worst Match: ECW Title Match

My predictions weren’t completely off, but I have done better.
