Winner and Champion of Champions: King Booker @ 21:08 via pin **½
King Booker helps Sharmell from the ring.
K Fed in the ring and he mocks Cena and the PPV ends at 10:36pm.
The 411: You know when I spend $40 on a PPV, I expect good matches, some clean finishes and a sense of satisfaction as far as money spent goes. Some PPV's don't live up to that and some just flat out suck ass, and this was one of them. It was predictable, the matches were basically all bad, minus two of them and we had to deal with fucking K FED in the main event match that was "supposed" to be huge. It all fell short and I could NEVER tell someone to but this monstrosity of a show. In the end I will go with a 2 out of 10 for the show, making this, at the time the worst PPV of 2006.
