THIS IS ARGUABLY THE BEST ARMAGEDDON EVER!
What a ppv this was, the last ppv of 2008 and it featured huge matches including john cena vs chris jericho, batista vs orton, cm punk vs rey mysterio and the huge triple threat main event!
World Heavyweight Championship Match
John Cena vs. Chris Jericho- I loved this action, it was close to reaching a 9, but just like orton vs batista the midsection dragged it down, but it was better because the restholds were shorter and when the fought, it was SUPERB. Chris jericho is one of those guys that brings the best out of anyone, and him and cena pulled a classic wwe championship match, much better than the survivor series match. Big moves include a bulldog from the apron onto the steel steps , FU, walls of jericho, code breaker and the stfu, whcih instantly made jericho tap. Great stuff here-8.5/10
Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship
Edge vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Triple H-Similar to last years armageddon in which we had a huge wrestlemania like triple threat main event, and this was much better than last years! What a back and forth match, full of big moves, counters, brawling, high risk from jeff as usual, and one hell of a table spot! last 5 mins just like all matches on this ppv were amazing stuff, it really pulled up the rating. And yes, shockingly jeff hardy won the match, realizing a dream that none of us thought was really possible after he lost to triple h ppv after ppv. What a memorable moment from an unforgettable match. Oh and look out for 2 suprise run ins! -9/10
Batista vs. Randy Orton- Solid bout in a match billed six years in the making. Had alot of hype and expectations and doe it didnt deliever, it was a gd match none the less. It just had too many restholds from randy orton midway (typical randy orton!)it had a hot last 5 mins wid many big moves and the beginning was very good aswel, i jus felt the midsection dragged the rating down. Still the physcology was solid, the bout was physical and i fink the right man won-8/10
Matt Hardy vs. Vladimir Kozlov- Not the right choice as an opener, too slow and one sided to be. But still solid action even doe it was filled with mid match restholds like most matches on the ppv. It was rather stupid making this none title as it gave away the winner. Great commentating may i add-7/10
Finlay vs. Mark Henry-Not bad stuff here, solid infact, and is arguably one of only two mark henry matches that were solid and didnt put u to sleep (the other in my opinion being his casket match with the undertaker) it was more of a spotfest with some comical moments with hornswoggle, a match in which a kendo stick , steel steps and trash cans were used. Finlay is a great editon to the ecw roster, able to pull out a gd match from henry. I fairly enjoyed this more than most-7/10
Intercontinental Title Tournament Final Match
Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk-WHAT A MATCH. WHAT A MATCH. This match is only behind ric flair vs shawn michaels at wm24 for the best match of 2008. I for one anticapated this match very much, and it more than delieved! infact it was sooo close to getting the full 5stars it was that good. I believe this classic is highly underrated. Perfect pace, wondeful uniquee counters, submissions moves used to build suspense and amazing high risk moves such as rey mysterio splashing cm punk on the outside! superb stuff, its matches like this that we dont see too often in wwe, its similar to rvd vs jerry lynn, great stuff one of my personal favourites-9.5/10
Great ppv, in a very good year for the wwe. It was filled with big matches, great matches, and an unforgettable moment. get this dvd NOW
