7/26/09 Night of Champions

Chris Jericho & The Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase (Unified Tag Team Titles): *1/2

Christian vs. Tommy Dreamer (ECW Title): **

Kofi Kingston vs. Jack Swagger vs. Carlito vs. The Miz vs. Primo vs. MVP (U.S. Title): ***

Michelle McCool vs. Melina (Women's Title): *1/2

Randy Orton vs. Triple H vs. John Cena (WWE Title): **1/2

Mickie James vs. Maryse (Divas Title): -*

Rey Mysterio vs. Dolph Ziggler (IC Title): **1/4

Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk (World Heavyweight Title): ***3/4

Match of the Night: Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk.

Trash of the Night: If purely by star rating, it was Mickie James vs. Maryse, although I was very ticked (to say the least) about the WWE Title finish.

Three stars: Hardy, Punk, and anyone in the U.S. Title match.

Analysis: This was an average PPV. Jericho likely could not have picked a worse tag partner to have a good match with, and the WWE Title match had one of the lamest finishes in quite some time. I'm still irked that we left talented stars like John Morrison and Shelton Benjamin off the show.

But hey, the Six-Pack Challenge was very fun to watch and the World Heavyweight Title match was a near-MOTY candidate.

Overall rating: **1/4
