WWE Velocity - 10/22/05

1. Paul London vs. Juventud - 6
2. Christian vs. Brian Kendrick - 5
3. William Regal and Paul Burchill vs. L.O.D. - 6

A few weeks back, in a cruiserweight battle royal, Juventud and London were the final two guys remaining, and put on a hell of a show. Their match on this edition was good, too; but perhaps a bit too ambitious, they didn’t quite pull it off as effectively as hoped. Kendrick and Christian are beyond competent workers, but this matched lacked the energy and flash I’d expected. I dug the main event, because Regal and Burchill are just so stiff. Early on, Burchill gave Hidenreich some worked stiff shots, but then Regal tagged in and delivered some legit stiff shots that crumpled hokey Hidenreich. The show ended in a huge melee in the ring, containing 10+ wrestlers; where I usually detest interference, this actually worked, in that it conveyed a sense of urgency and excitement in the tag team division.
