8/16/09 Hard Justice

Daniels vs. Chris Sabin vs. Alex Shelley vs. Amazing Red vs. Jay Lethal vs. Consequences Creed vs. Suicide vs. D'Angelo Dinero (Steel Asylum): ****

Abyss vs. Jethro Holliday (No DQ Bounty Match): *3/4

Hernandez vs. Rob Terry (Feast or Fired Briefcase): DUD

Doug Williams & Brutus Magnus vs. James Storm & Robert Roode (IWGP Tag Team Titles): **1/4

ODB & Cody Deaner vs. Angelina Love & Velvet Sky (Knockouts Title): -*

Samoa Joe vs. Homicide (X-Division Title): *1/2

Booker T & Scott Steiner vs. Brother Ray & Brother Devon (Tag Team Titles; Falls Count Anywhere): **

Kevin Nash vs. Mick Foley (Legends Title): *

Kurt Angle vs. Matt Morgan vs. Sting (World Heavyweight Title): **

Match of the Night: Steel Asylum Match. Nothing else was even close.

Trash of the Night: More than one match...your pick.

Three Stars: Any three in the Steel Asylum. I was impressed with everyone in that matchup, and D'Angelo Dinero (a.k.a. Elijah Burke) had a respectable debut (although I would have had him do more to make more of an impact).

Analysis: What can I say? They started with a bang and almost everything else was horrible for a PPV. They left AJ Styles off the PPV, they left the good female wrestlers off the PPV, and this is what you get. Except for the Steel Asylum, the matches were likely stuff you could have seen on free TV. This was not worth your money to buy this PPV.

Rating: *
