My short analysis of each pay-per-view before I choose:Royal Rumble:
Pretty good pay-per-view, a classic match between JBL and Jericho, both title matches were appropriate an entertaining, especially the ending of the Edge/Mysterio match. A great Royal Rumble match too, great first 2 participants with HBK and Undertaker, classic moment to have them start it off and hopefully it's a teaser for a WM match next year in Houston. Surprise winner and entrant John Cena is a +++ for me.No way Out:
It's all about the 2 Elimination chambers. Both delivered, IMO, both had classic moments. But beyond that there wasn't much. Still worth the money though.Wrestlemania 24:
Probably the best Wrestlemania in a long time. It gave up a moment we will remember for the rest of our lives and probably tell our children and grandchildren about in Flair's retirement match, a couple great main event title matches, A surprisingly good match between Big Show and Mayweather, and a good as always MITB match. But the thing is, it's expected to be this good, so I can't vote for WM. It probably was the best pay-per-view, but other than Orton winning it didn't really have any surprises or "WTF" moments.Backlash:
This is where the PPVs started going downhill, IMO this one was a little forgettable.Judgment Day:
Same as above. Good to see a Steel Cage match main event a pay-per-view in the days of Elimination Chambers and Punjabi Prisons and Hell in a Cells, etc,etc. But one match doens't necessarily make a pay-per-view.One Night Stand:
My choice for Pay-per-view of the mid-year so far. Not a single weak match on the card. Even the botched match which ended because of an injury was entertaining. It gave us at least 2 match of the year candidates and was entertaining beginning to end. Loved it and gave it an A, would've been an A+ if the WWE title match didn't have to end early tbh because I know Orton and Triple H would've beaten their last Last Man Standing match and that was my MOTY from 2007.
So I choose One Night Stand. It was entertaining beginning-to-end, some great results and fun matches.
#2 No Way Out
#3 Royal Rumble
Wrestlemania is in a class of its own tbh. What's yours?
