Providence, Rhode Island
April 26, 2009
Swagger was new here and finding his footing still. Christian was a good guy to face as he was a vet who knew what to do. Solid opening match. Nothing really wrong but nothing too great.
2.75 / 5
A solid match granted Steamboat hadn’t wrestled in like a decade. Jericho helped him keep up and make it look well here too. Not a great match or super exciting always but points for Steamboat looking better than expected minus a few moves.
2.5 / 5
Kane doesn’t know how to sell throughout a match and its very clear. This wasn’t really that great and instantly forgettable.
2 / 5
This had its moments but was a bit too long. Dear lord though this ending is horrendous. Matt pulling the dead mom angle, saying the crowd is bad, and then backing out of a leg drop. What a buzzkill.
1.5 / 5
A decent match that had its moments. It helped having more people here to flesh the match out too. Ortons ending punt looked horrendous though.
3.25 / 5
This match starts slow but gets better. It has its big spots here and the ending, while over the top, is memorable. Big Show randomly coming out to throw Cena through the light was the big moment they needed here to get this match to be remembered.
3.5 / 5
