Ah yes the event that came to us live from San Antonio Texas baby, and then the next night Raw came from my town of Austin baby. Both were great by the way but any way back to this. This event was a good one that did not have a disappointing match in my opinion. I am reviewing the DVD and also this was the first Vengeance event since like 2007 or something.
1.[TAG TEAM TITLE]AIR BOOM VS DOLPH ZIGGLER & JACK SWAGGER-excellent opening match as these two teams always seem to put on. Is it just me or is it every time Dolph opens a show his match is one of the best. The action in this one is great with all four bringing their a-games. This match has some great moments and even has a touch of that old school tag action. If only the WWE would learn from these two teams and get serious about the division. Air Boom retains the titles after an excellent opening contest. Plus there was a crazy monkey flip that sent Dolph flying.
2.[US TITLE]DOLPH ZIGGLER VS ZACH RYDER-immediately following his tag match Dolph has to defend his US title. Much like the first match Dolph is excellent here putting on a great showing against Zach. Dolph gets in trouble a lot in this one and looks to his teammate and manager to help him out. He ends up keeping the title in another good match.
3.[DIVA'S TITLE]BETH PHOENIX VS EVE-one of my favorite wrestlers out there Beth does her thing here against Eve. The Diva's division has been getting a bit better this year. Beth and Natalya have always been great and I love that Beth is the champ. This is a good enough match that does its job, not as good as some past ones but still a good match.
4.CHRISTIAN VS SHEAMUS-these two have been going at it for a little bit now and once again they put on a good show. Sheamus uses his strength to his advantage in this match while Christian uses his speed to combat that. Good back and forth action and a really great ending that give Sheamus the win.
5.TRIPLE H, CM PUNK VS THE MIZ, R-TRUTH-the match I was most looking forward to since I love all four of these guys. I knew going in that this was going to be a good match and expected a crazy ending. Turns out I was right on both counts, but to we will get to that. Great back and forth action here with Punk and Triple H actually working well together and even gets in some heel moves. Things are going well for Triple H and Punk when Kevin Nash comes out and lays Triple H out. This lets Truth get back in the ring in time to save Miz and get the win.
6.CODY RHODES VS RANDY ORTON-two guys that have a long history together go at it in this one. This is a really solid match that shows how far Cody has come in the WWE. He gives Randy a run for his money but comes up a little short after an RKO. Still it was a great match with Cody really shining in my opinion.
7.[WORLD TITLE]MARK HENRY VS BIG SHOW-this was a match that a lot of people doubted for some reason. I liked the storyline going into this and had faith that this would be a good match. This of course was big man vs. big man, power vs. power, and it was good. I think this was a really good match and actually pretty dramatic, even before the ending. Of course they pull a Show/Brock with a superplex that levels the ring and causes the match to stop.
8.[WWE TITLE LAST MAN STANDING MATCH]ALBERTO DEL RIO VS JOHN CENA-this match turned out to be a really good one to no ones surprise. These specialty matches really help Cena and his brawling style. These two battled all though out the place including in the middle of the broken ring. There are all kinds of spots in this so you know the crowd was into it. This was a really good last man standing match full of action, I loved when Del Rio went flying from the ring. That part had me cracking up, still love even now. My boy Del Rio keeps the belt in a hard fought match though, oh and did I mention this event was in San Antonio Texas.
There is a special feature with Del Rio being interviewed by my boy Matt Striker. Over all this was a good event. It was even better live homies coming from the great state of Texas. I enjoyed every match from top to bottom and back up. If you are a wrestling fan then you need to pick this up.
WWE re-introduces Vengeance after a 4 year hiatus and it was definitely a welcoming treat. Not at all because I missed Vengeance itself, hell, they could have called it Capital Combat for all I care. The point is we needed a break from all the gimmick events. Vengeance had a good enough card coming in, the event was hyped up well enough, and it did its job in delivering a filler show.
