Star rating key:

DUD = Boring match (or could not enjoy the match)
1/4* to 3/4* = It had watchable moments.
* to *3/4 = Average match.
** to **3/4 = Above average match.
*** to ***3/4 = Great match; usually saved for PPVs
**** to ****3/4 = Match of the year candidate
***** = The rarest of all matches. A classic.

9/29/08 RAW:
Batista vs. Santino Marella: Talk about a squash...but at least the crowd loved it. DUD

The Miz vs. JTG: Very nice moves from JTG. Nice leapfrog legdrop by JTG...never seen that before. Miz gets help from Morrison and gets the win. Decent match. *1/2

Jamie Noble & Mickie James vs. Paul Burchill & Katie Lea (Intergender match): Again, some decent action. Nice to see Regal and Layla out on the stage to continue that feud. Jamie gets the win with the cross armbreaker. *

Kane, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, & Manu vs. CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, Evan Bourne, & Kofi Kingston: Really great stuff at the start with all the faces going airborne doing something. Action slowed down when the heels took over. Good hot tag and more exciting stuff. Good stuff all around. **1/4

Candice Michelle & Kelly Kelly vs. Beth Phoenix & Jillian: Some good spots in this match. Scary spot when Candice got caught on the ropes again...she could have broken her collarbone AGAIN - along with her nose. Solid finish. Beth's finisher is very nice. *

The Great Charli vs. Deuce: Honestly, this has to be one of the funniest ones yet from Charlie Haas. The wrestling had good spots, but it was nothing special at all. 1/4*

DX (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) vs. Chris Jericho & Lance Cade: Crowd went completely berserk when the DX music hit. Crappy ending. *1/2
