[1]: At WrestleMania XXV on April 5, 2009, Carlito & Primo Colon defeated The Miz and John Morrison to unify Smackdown’s WWE tag team championship with Raw’s World tag team championship.
[2]: Edge and Chris Jericho were given a last-minute WWE unified tag team titles shot right before a scheduled title defense between The Colon brothers and Ted DiBiase Jr. & Cody Rhodes, thus creating an impromptu triangle match. Edge brought the match to an end once he pinned Carlito after a Spear to secure the unified tag team titles for himself and Chris Jericho.
[3]: This was a triple-threat elimination match including CM Punk & Luke Gallows. They were eliminated first by Shawn Michaels pinning Punk, but then the Miz pinned Michaels to secure the tag team titles.
[4]: Cody Rhodes & Drew McIntyre won the unified tag team titles in a tag team turmoil match which also included the former tag champs the Hart Dynasty, the Usos, Santino Marella & Vladimir Kozlov, and the team they actually defeated to win the tag titles Evan Bourne and Mark Henry.
[5]: This was a fatal four-way elimination match which also included the former tag champs Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel, the Usos, and Mark Henry & Yoshi Tatsu. However, a timely distraction from John Cena helped Santino pin Gabriel to defeat the Nexus and secure the unified tag team titles.

Some planes fly low over the stadium (which had to be REALLY loud) right before Fantasia sings the National Anthem. Dang, 2004 called. Then again, you wouldn’t want somebody new like Ke$ha appearing here either. Sorry, Slack. You don’t really want that to happen.

Royal Rumble 2010

Royal Rumble 2010, January 31, 2010, Phillips Arena, Atlanta, GA

Announcers: Michael Cole, Jerry Lawler, & Matt Striker

So here we go with the first PPV of the new year and new decade, the Royal Rumble.  The undercard build has been pretty underwhelming to me, but I’m really looking forward to the Rumble itself as they’ve done a great job of building several guys into having legit reasons to win so if nothing else I expect it to deliver.
