Judge Franck Tabouring wishes he could easily find his way out of his bed in the morning.
There is truly no way out of this.
The stars from Raw, Smackdown, and ECW gather in Seattle, Washington, for WWE: No Way Out 2009. Here's the complete lineup:
• Edge vs. Triple H vs. Jeff Hardy vs. Big Show vs. Undertaker
vs. Vladimir Kozlov in an Elimination Chamber Match for the WWE Championship
• Shane McMahon vs. Randy Orton in a No Holds Barred Match
• Jack Swagger vs. Finlay in an ECW Championship Match
• JBL vs. Shawn Michaels in a All or Nothing Match
• John Cena vs. Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Edge vs. Kane vs. Chris
Jericho vs. Mike Knox in an Elimination Chamber Match for the World Heavyweight
As usual, the quality of the full-frame presentation works just fine, and so does the sound transfer. As far as wrestling is concerned, technical aspects certainly don't matter as much as the actual action inside the ring.
The special features on this disc are mediocre at best. Besides a lame interview with Edge, the bonus material also includes an unsanctioned match between Randy Orton and Shane McMahon from Raw. It's a mostly repetitive battle without surprises or suspense.
All in all, No Way Out 2009 is a decent PPV, even though it could have been a lot better. The two Elimination Chamber matches really deliver the goods, but everything else fails to impress.
Thanks to the big nasty cage, I find this pay-per-view not guilty.
