The Charge

Not exactly true. No one dies.

The Case

A fixture of the WWE's pay-per-view slate, the Fatal 4-Way pretty much delivers the smackdown it promises: four burly wrestling superstars, one of whom is the current champion, square off and go at each other. Winners are declared by pinfall or submission.

This go-round features the following cards for both the WWE Championship and the World Heavyweight Championship, the difference between the two I am not entirely sure.

WWE Championship 2010
John Cena (defending champion)
Randy Orton

World Heavyweight Championship 2010
Jack Swagger
Big Show
CM Punk
Rey Mysterio

And the rest of the matches:

Intercontinental Championship
Kofi Kingston vs. Drew McIntyre

Fatal 4-Way Divas Championship
Gail Kim vs. Alicia Fox vs. Eve vs. Maryse

Chris Jericho vs. Evan Bourne

United States Championship
The Miz vs. R-Truth

6-Person Mixed Tag Team
The Hart Dynasty vs. The Usos

The Fatal 4-Way matches offer the most mayhem and brawling and with four guys going at it; you're going to see a bunch of twists and specials moves and other related wrestling tomfoolery. It's a concept that allows the WWE to showcase its more outlandish match creation. Unfortunately, if you haven't seen the special before, the front cover totally spoils the outcomes.

(Note: Keeping with its move away from the sleazier elements, this special is rated TV-PG.)

The DVD: full frame, 2.0 stereo, and some Nexus footage for the extras.

The Verdict

Not Guilty. They sure do punch each other!
