Not even Armageddon can stop Judge Franck Tabouring.
Zero hour is approaching…
The stars of Raw, SmackDown, and ECW head to Buffalo, New York, for WWE: Armageddon 2008, the year's final pay-per-view and the ultimate showdown between WWE's finest.
Facts of the Case
Here's a brief look at the PPV's card: Matt Hardy faces Vladimir Kozlov; CM Punk goes head to head with Rey Mysterio; Batista battles Randy Orton; and Finlay takes on Mark Henry in a Belfast Brawl. Additionally, eight divas lead a tag team match; Chris Jericho wrestles John Cena for the world title; and Edge, Triple H, and Jeff Hardy go after the WWE Championship in a Triple Threat.
Here's the complete lineup of the event:
• Matt Hardy vs. Vladimir Kozlov
• Rey Mysterio vs. CM Punk in a #1 Contender Match for the WWE
• Finlay vs. Mark Henry in a Belfast Brawl
• Batista vs. Randy Orton
• Michelle McCool, Mickie James, Kelly Kelly, and Maria vs.
Maryse, Natalya, Jillian, and Victoria in a Santa's Little Helper Tag Team
• Chris Jericho vs. John Cena in a World Heavyweight Championship
• Edge vs. Triple H. vs. Jeff Hardy in a Triple Threat Match for
the WWE Championship.
The disc boasts solid enough technical aspects, including a clean enough full-frame presentation and a decent audio transfer. The DVD also features a Spanish commentary track.
The bonus material, however, fails to deliver the goods. The only extra you'll find on this disc is a four-minute segment during which The Miz and John Morrison offer viewers their personal pay-per-view review. To be honest, I couldn't care less about what these guys have to say. It's supposed to be a funny piece, but I couldn't help but stop watching it after fifteen seconds.
Even though WWE: Armageddon is definitely not the best pay-per-view of 2008, it includes a couple of entertaining matches. The final two battles work flawlessly, and the great main event is reason alone to invest in this DVD if you haven't already seen the show.
