WWE Night of Champions 2009 Review

Once again, I actually ordered the ppv…this site makes ME NO money, despite what you guys might think. I worked a second job to pay off my credit card, and am only now able to order a ppv. If by chance, and I know it’s a long shot, you like the ppv review you can send a donation my way by purchasing product through the amazon links. Thank you.

Night of Champions! Here we go!

Chris Jericho & The Big Show defeated Legacy in a the Unified WWE Championship Match

I was hoping that Jericho would pick an all new partner, someone not already on raw and smackdown, but nope, he picked none other than The Big Show! The Big Show came down and Legacy looked crazed.

Jericho was on the receiving end of getting worked over by Legacy, after The Big Show tagged from a dominant stance against the youngsters. Jericho was definitely taking most of the offense from Legacy, but he would get some shots in, if only for a moment in time, only to have the young ones counter and counter. Jericho kept going for the walls and eventually got them in, Cody Rhodes held at bay for a moment by Big Show, but it wasn’t enough to make Dibiase Tap out. This match had the crowd fully behind Chris Jericho in this match, and it seemed like he was a face all along. Big Show got a good tag in, and went to work, hit a monstrous spear on Dibiase and I thought this one was done. It was not to be had though, Legacy got the big man down to his knees, but with the ref distracted out came Jericho for a great Codebreaker, and Big Show got his bearings and hooked Dibiase in one heck of a submission hold, for the win! Big Show and Jericho are now the “hot shot” tag team. I hate when they do this…but oh well, better than nothing eh? Jericho & Show retain.

CM Punk came out on the mic and talked about how Hardy is ok to cheer for, and he doesn’t blame anyone, but the parents. He said that only single parent situation families like Jeff Hardy! So Lame. Punk was once again fighting to get the heel turn, I can’t hate him, hopefully it’s a passing phase.

Christian defeated Tommy Dreamer in the ECW Title Match

This match had Tommy Dreamer trying really hard to work as fast as Christian can think. Christian was way ahead of Dreamer’s pursuit, and even Dreamers counters seemed half speed, with Christian deliberately slowing down for Dreamer to catch up with his flurry of young exuberance. Dreamer was taking some heavy shots too, it looked painful at times, proving yet again that Dreamer’s not going to last long with this type of competition. However, Christian hasn’t been getting the same kind of push he got when he first came back to WWE, so maybe Dreamer is getting a loyal push. The Sky High powerbomb from dreamer on Christian was really looking terrible. Christian definitely worked his butt off to get this match going well, Tom Dreamer slapped on a Texas Cloverleaf late in this match, which was great. That didn’t put away Christian, but it was nice to see a cloverleaf after so long. (Dean Malenko was famous for that submission maneuver) Christian hit the Killswitch and it was over…Christian gets the ECW title with ease, if you ask me. Dreamer needs to just retire.

Kofi Kingston defeated Jack Swagger, Carlito, The Miz, Primo, and MVP in the U.S. Title Match

The match was a six pack scramble, where any pinfall or submission would win the title. The match was filled with spots, just back to back spots, with lots of stuff going on, and too frantic for the cameras to follow. While the match did have some good moments, it felt too much like a cluster. Kofi blocked Carlito’s back elbow which was awesome, and Jack Swagger teamed with the Miz for a second or two to take on Primo, which was definitely a good watch. Primo looked great in there, and he is a lot more agile than Carlito, and it could be due to his size. Carlito took a sick dive off the top rope to the outside. He did a front flip, MVP didn’t catch him all the way, and just landed with a thud…ouch. Best spot was The Miz hitting MVP with his finisher while MVP hit his finisher at the same time on Swagger! Carlito hit a backstabber on Primo, only to get knocked out with Trouble in Paradise and Kofi Kingston retains! This match started like a cluster, but it ended up being quite entertaining, with Kofi winning after the melee’s were over.

Michelle McCool defeated Melina in the WWE’s Women title match

Michelle McCool can hit hard, I’ve seen her do it. Melina, I haven’t do much but look pretty and stretch here and there. Outside of Mick Foley, I don’t know who Melina’s fans are, I am not one of them. McCool hit a ddt on the guard rail, which was a nice move, considering how much balance had to be placed to hit that correctly. Melina had some good offense, hitting some moves focusing on McCool’s back, and continuing to scream like a tennis player. Melina botched a spinning heel kick, barely getting off the ground, but still kept this match going. McCool’s belly to belly whipped Melina’s spine around in one of the best executed moves I’ve seen in a long time. McCool used all of her weight to tie up Melina, and win this match relatively easily with simply her weight over Melinas legs.

Randy Orton defeated Triple H, and John Cena in the WWE Title Match

This match opened up with Cena and Triple H teaming up to beat up Orton at every moment and chance they could. However, on accidental shoulder tackle and this thing was every man for themselves. Orton took care of Cena, throwing him through the ropes into the ring post, and then focusing on grounding Triple H. He had this thing in a good place, working over Triple H’s capacity to stand, with a lot of rest holds to cut the ring in half. Orton got his though, getting thrown out of this match with Cena and Triple H left to go at it, giving each other some heavy artillery, with the crowd firmly behind each of them, after every blow! This wouldn’t last too long with Orton taking control after a lengthy pause on the outside. The match continued to the announcers tables, where Triple H was setting a pedigree, but Cena stopped it, tossing Orton into the crowd! Triple H then went for the Pedigree on Cena, only to get trapped into the STF! Cena got the better of the deal outside, inside he countered the RKO throwing Randy Orton off him and nearly landing his shoulder. Cena then set up Orton for a Super Plex, but Triple H stopped it, Cena eventually set up Triple H into the STF and Orton was stranded on the ropes, this thing looked like it was all over, even though Triple H was not willing to tap, Orton went for a punt, missing, and managed to get back into this thing once again taking control. Triple knocked out, Cena winded, and Orton stalking, this match started to look like an instant classic.

Triple H had the sharpshooter on Orton, Cena had the STF all at the same time and Orton was tapping. However, the referee wasn’t sure who won, then out came legacy! Rhodes took a major hit, and Randy Orton pounced, retaining his title in the process! That’s right, Orton wins again with a killer instinct and referee having problems.

Mickie James defeated Maryse in the wwe divas title match

The Divas title was on the line in this match, and Maryse was the one that was slowing down this match up. She’s got a few moves, but not really the wrestler that Mickie James is. I was thinking this of course right before Maryse nearly knocked out Mickie with a kick square to the face. Maryse introduced some spray into the match but Mickie James got a hold of it, and was ready to use it but the ref took it away from her. The battle ended up going to the floor and the two brawled it out. Mickie James hit a ddt and won the match, with very little crowd reaction…so that was that. This match was worse than the match earlier on.

Rey Mysterio defeated Dolph Ziggler in the Intercontinental Championship Match

Ziggler has improved night and day since I first saw him here in Seattle. He was fast, he was working Mysterio like a true technical heel. Shades of Rick Martel and Lex Luger were seen in this match up, with Ziggler not allowing Mysterio to string together a set of moves like he normally does. Ziggler slowed down the tempo, hit big moves, got out of the way when necessary, and was really pushing his weight around in this match up. Mysterio would eventually get his bearings, with quick motion kicks, and clever reversals, but it was still Ziggler that had so many moments in this match to prove that he wasn’t just a flash in the pan new comer. Ziggler’s perfect timed dropkick while Mysterio was coming off the top rope was very impressive, shades of Brian Pillman was felt in the timing of that amazing move. I kid you not, Ziggler’s game improved 100 percent in this match, he just got it, and Mysterio was perfect too, countering momentum to overcome his smaller stature against the larger opponent. This match easily was stealing the show! Ziggler hit a TOP ROPE Gut Buster from the top rope! Seriously, top rope GUT BUSTER on Mysterio! Not since Dean Malenko defeated Brad Armstrong with that move, have I seen such a great move with perfect execution! Ziggler was godlike in his move, but it was to no avail! Mysterio turned it around last minute, hit the 619 and won this match. ZIGGLER stole the show, ZIGGLER ZIGGLER ZIGGLER! This match made the night, Ziggler is the real deal here, I kid you not. He hit some impressive shots, I can’t believe this dude was in the spirit squad at one point, dang, Mysterio and Ziggler 3 star match, wow, I was floored with that last set. Great match, I don’t care what anyone says. The Top Rope Gutbuster…wow!

Jeff Hardy defeated C.M. Punk in the World Heavyweight Championship Match

Punk came out first, to get the heel reaction. Punk and Hardy flew through the beginning of the match, with Punk getting over mostly on his power moves, Hardy settling for a good part of the match before getting his bearings and running through some quick offense. Punk and Hardy each missed some key outside moves, high risk, and paid for them with 9 counts and close calls in ring. Hardy hit a nice top rope split leg face plant on Punk, but couldn’t pin the straightedge superstar. Punk and Hardy exchanged strikes, and were definitely trying to get a strangle hold on the other, with neither one looking more dominant than the other. Hardy of course was getting his fast hits in, forcing Punk to try and reverse some of them, not really doing as well as Jericho did on Friday, but he was managing to push Hardy off the ropes, off the apron, and get some breathing room whenever possible. Hardy countered the running Bulldog to hit the Whisper in the Wind, which was a sweet reversal, and Punk wasn’t looking like he could hold on to this one. Punk got a second wind but it was short lived, Hardy went for the Swanton Bomb but Punk put his knees up! I thought it was over, I thought this match was done, but nope, Hardy barely kicked out of a 2 count. Hardy missed with the Twist of Fate, then the GTS hit him square in the face! Hardy kicked out, and Punk was completely frustrated here, he had no recourse but to go outside and grab his belt and start walking away. Punk was literally walking away, not being able to beat Hardy he was giving up. Hardy gave chase, stopping Punk from leaving, and running him back to the Ring! The Twist of Fate Hit then Hardy hit the Swanton Bomb and won clean! Punk lost, and we have another shot with Hardy as champ! The crowd went nuts…JR called him the High Risk Junkie…lame.

Punk lost clean.

Great ppv, I think Ziggler stole the show, I loved that, that’s why I loved this ppv. I’m sorry, if you don’t agree, too bad, Ziggler showed up and stole the show with Mysterio. That gut buster…dang…dang!

  1. I thought the referee's decision to keep the match going after Orton was tapping to HHH and Cena simultaneously was idiotic. He should have declared Orton eliminated and then restarted the match with HHH facing Cena with the winner being declared RAW Champion. Either that, or declare Orton disqualified for interference due to Legacy's actions and fine both Legacy and Orton until they scream.

  2. This wasn't an elimination bout. With both Triple H and Cena applying submissions, neither man could be declared the winner but Orton couldn't be eliminated.

    The fight had to go on. And in the end, like Orton said, HHH and Cena's egos cancelled each other out and Randy retained.
