DVD of the Day #361 - WWE Extreme Rules 2009

I rented this from Netflix for one reason - to see Tommy Dreamer win the ECW world title and for a few minutes pretend the real ECW is still alive and well. Of course considering ECW has basically become the Captain Charisma show, I can’t complain too much as much like the real ECW it gives us the best angles and longest matches. Anyway, there were a bunch of matches besides that one on this disc.

1. Kofi Kingston Vs. William Regal Vs. MVP Vs Matt Hardy. It appears at the time of the PPV Matt hardy is heel again (Obviously it wasn’t for long) and this was Kofi’s first US title defense. A title he would eventually lose to The Miz. Fun little match and a good opener. 1/1

2. Chris Jericho Vs. Rey Mysterio in a IC title match. Didn’t Rey lose his mask to Kevin Nash over a decade ago? How did he get it back? Obvious Rey still has his mask but Jericho makes most anything better. Great promo by Jericho before the match. Jericho gets the title and the mask. Yet Rey still wears a mask after this match. Rey also has a huge ass bald spot here when he is unmasked. Jericho > Rey. 2/2

3. Umaga Vs. CM Punk. Samoan Strap Match. Strap matches are awful. Umaga is awful. I think this was his last match in the WWE. 2/3

4. ECW title: Christian Vs. Tommy Dreamer Vs Jack Swagger. If Tommy Dreamer loses, he retires from wrestling. A lot of people thought this was going to be Dreamer’s last match but a lot of old school ECW fans were hoping it was a chance to reward one of the nicest and most loyal men in the history of the business thank god the right booking decision was made. It’s just too bad Joey Styles wasn’t calling this match, but Matt Striker makes the best announcing call of the year. “Thomas James Laughlin is the ECW Champion and for one moment…all is right with the world.” Unless you grew up with ECW, you can’t understand how true that statement is. 3/4.

Also, they call this a HARDCORE match instead of an “Extreme Rules Match.” Thank you. It’s the little things that count.

5. Vickie Guerrero Vs. Santina Marella in a hogpen match. Fuck this shit. 3/5.

6. Orton Vs. Batista for the WWE Championship in a Steel Cage match. Yeah. Two guys that can’t wrestle in a Steel Cage. usually this spells disaster and this is no difference. 3/6

7. John Cena Vs. Big Show in a submission match. Another match that is as awful on paper as it is to watch. Seriously, how is Cena over? Why does he have fans and a push? Why does he job less than Hogan in the 1980’s? Boring as shit. 3/7.

8. Edge Vs Jeff Hardy for the World Championship in a ladder match. Ten years later and these two can still give us an amazing match involving a ladder. This was the best match to end the feud as well as this PPV. Thank god is broke the streak of three awful matches. 4/8

9. Jeff Hardy Vs. CM Punk. Yeah Punk! Use your straightedge power to defeat the evil of meth users! Oh the angry fans. 5/9.

Overall, this was worth watching for the ladder match and the ECW title match, but that’s it.

Is It Worth Keeping? no.
