BRAGGING RIGHTS 2009

1.THE MIZ VS JOHN MORRISON-this was a great way to kick off the event with two former partners going at it. These two were tag team champs at one point before being split by the draft. This was a good opener in my opinion with a lot of back and forth action. Miz was more of a grinder and power wrestler here with Morrison more of the high flyer. My boy Miz of course takes the win and puts Raw up one to nothing.

2.MELINA, KELLY KELLY, GAIL KIM VS MICHELLE MCCOOL, BETH PHOENIX, NATALYA-now when you look at the names here it was pretty obvious who was going to win. I mean Smackdown is literally the stronger team with Natalya and Beth, and McCool is always entertaining. The action here is your typical women's match type, short and ok. Team Smackdown had the much better team with three of my favorites, just needed the other half of Lay Cool and that would have been great. Raw of course I was rooting against here since I can't stand Melina. Beth gets the win here making it Raw one and Smackdown one.

3.[FATAL FOUR WAY WORLD TITLE MATCH]THE UNDERTAKER VS REY MYSTERIO VS CM PUNK VS BATISTA-this was an excellent fast paced match like these multi guy matches usually are. A lot of high spots followed by more high spots, and with the four guys that were in this match you get different styles. A lot of near falls and finisher after finisher make for an exciting match. But after Taker keeps his belt in tact it is what happens after that was the show stealer. Batista's heel turn as he demolishes former best friend Rey Mysterio. I loved his little speech to Rey right before the beat down, "I' am not playing.......I' am gonna rip your head off". Great stuff.

4.[RAW VS SMACKDOWN]D-X, BIG SHOW, KOFI KINGSTON, MARK HENRY, JACK SWAGGER, CODY RHODES VS CHRIS JERICHO, KANE, MATT HARDY, FINLAY, R-TRUTH, THE HART DYNASTY-I have to admit that I have always been a fan of these multi tag matches. The bragging rights thing is a good excuse to put multiple top talents against each other. As you can see from the line up there are a lot of good guys in this match and of course it was fun. Sure it may be pointless other than starting or continuing storylines and such, but I like them. Of course with any match like this you get the high spots, beat downs, and dramatic tag-ins, all are present here. The ending was cool with Show turning on Raw and causing them to loose the match and fall two to one over all.

5.[IRONMAN MATCH WWE TITLE MATCH]RANDY ORTON VS JOHN CENA-why did the champ come out first, I don't care that they announced them in the ring as challenger first then champion, the champ comes out last. Any way this match was a no DQ and no Count out Iron-Man match pitting these two rivals together. Of course you know they are rivals because that is what the storyline and video package was all about. Cena gets the first fall after making Randy tap, but Randy tapped quickly to remain fresh.

From there the match got even crazier with exploding sets and Randy trying to blow Cena up. This match was much better than I expected it to be. Not sure why there was some doubt but I was worried. The action goes every where from the ring to outside and all the way into the fans. The rest of the pin fall countdown is as follows.

Orton gets the next pin fall after a nice RKO. We get a double pin fall after another great RKO. Cena quickly goes up three to two after an AA. Orton evens it up after Legacy interferes, soon after Kofi Kingston chases them out. Randy takes the lead after getting the next fall, but Cena gets a surprise pin fall. Randy gets the next fall with nasty DDT to the outside. An AA through a table gets Cena the tie, and at the end he makes Orton tap with seconds left and is the new champ. Still that should not have happened since Orton tapped with 5 or so seconds left on the clock it should have been stopped with the thirty second rest period. Then with the 5 or so seconds Randy had the chance to get a quick roll up to tie it, should have been done that way.

Any way this was a good event with out a single match I disliked, it also has an interview with Jericho on the DVD.

   The first ever bragging rights event was pretty good. Thanks for reading and please comment.       Intercontinental champion vs. United States champion    The miz(us) vs. John morrison(IC)    This match is okay. Of course some highflying moves from morrison. I wasn't expecting really anything out of this match because these two didn't even have a buildup at all. This match really shouldn't have been on the card. But over all good match. Sad thing …

Wiki

Bragging Rights was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), which took place on October 25, 2009 at the Mellon Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[3][4] It featured talent from the Raw and SmackDown brands.[5] Five matches were featured on the card.

The concept of the show was based around a series of interpromotional matches for "bragging rights" between wrestlers from the Raw and SmackDown brands, with a Bragging Rights trophy awarded to the show that won the most matches out of the series.[6][7] The matches included Raw's United States Champion The Miz defeating SmackDown's Intercontinental Champion John Morrison, SmackDown's team of Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix and Natalya defeating Raw's team of Melina, Kelly Kelly and Gail Kim, and SmackDown's team of Chris Jericho, Kane, R-Truth, Matt Hardy, Finlay, Tyson Kidd and David Hart Smith defeating Raw's team of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Big Show, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Kofi Kingston and Mark Henry. The SmackDown brand won the Bragging Rights trophy with two wins to one.

The show also contained two world championship matches including the main event where John Cena defeated Randy Orton in an Anything Goes Iron Man match to win the WWE Championship, and The Undertaker defeating CM Punk, Rey Mysterio and Batista in a Fatal Four-Way match to retain the World Heavyweight Championship.

The Bragging Rights pay-per-view drew approximately less than 200,000 ...
