10/7/08 ECW

Star rating key:
(negative stars) = Huh?! (BS finish; most squash matches)
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.

10/7/08 ECW:
Finlay & Tommy Dreamer vs. Jack Swagger & Mike Knox: Just your traditional tag team match. Good wrestling from Swagger as he continues to show more of his arsenal. Hornswoggle and the shillelagh make their usual cameos. Knox of course is the one to be pinned so Swagger doesn't look weak. *1/2

Mark Henry vs. Jamie Noble: Noble tried, but really, did anyone expect Noble to win this one? At least it was not the worst thing ever and Noble actually got offense in. DUD

John Morrison, The Miz, Cody Rhodes, & Ted DiBiase vs. CM Punk, Evan Bourne, Ricky Ortiz, & Kofi Kingston: It's very reassuring seeing that all eight people in this match are young and are doing well on WWE TV. It was a decent match with a bunch of action. Usual Evan Bourne stuff early on. Nice spots from Kofi and Ortiz near the end. Manu interfered too much for my liking. Ending was unoriginal...typical heel stuff to allow Morrison to get the win. **
