Armageddon is an average PPV boosted by a superb and length main event match which helped resurrect an old feud and make it one for the ages.
The show opens with a Fatal Four-Way Elimination match for the World Tag Team Championship, with Chris Jericho and Christian defending their straps against Booker T and Goldust, Lance Storm and William Regal, and The Dudley Boyz. A long and well-paced match that really keeps the audience guessing; a great opener.
The second match isn't so hot, though; Edge fights A-Train in a match that isn't particularly interesting and also has a rather poor judgement call finish.
However, things bounce back in the third match, with Chris Benoit fighting Eddie Guerrero in a long and technically sound match that's one of the event's highlights.
In a dud, though, Batista takes on Kane; it's a boring and sluggish fight that never gets up enough steam and is just slow moving and not at all interesting.
In a Triple Threat match for the WWE Women's Championship, Victoria defends the strap against Trish Stratus and Jacqueline, but as usual, the match is too short and never becomes engaging enough because it lasts all of about three minutes.
The Big show defends the WWE Championship against Kurt Angle in a well built up fight that reignites a long-gestating unease between the two. It has a satisfying end, and the better man leaves with the belt thankfully.
The real meat of the meal, though, is the Three Stages of Hell main event, with Triple H attempting to win back his World Heavyweight Championship from Shawn Michaels that he won at the previous Survivor Series pay per view in the Elimination Chamber. A brutal and intense fight that really delivers the goods.
