      Poorly booked and full of botches

      New Year's Revolution 2005 is quite a famous event because of the huge amount of injuries and glitches that plagued it. Nevertheless, it does boast a solid main event match even if the undercard is undeniably hit and miss.

      The show opens with Eugene and William Regal defending against Christian and Tyson Tomko for the World Tag Team Championship, with Eugene having a knee injury halfway through the match, and somewhat killing the momentum.

      The second match sees Trish Stratus defending against Lita for the WWE Women's Championship. The match has Lita suffer a rather horrendous neck injury which sees her out of action for a while, and hampers the rhythm also.

      The real insult, though, is the match between champion Shelton Benjamin and challenger Maven for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. The match had a lot of promise athletically, but once it ends, it restarts again, only for a humiliating end several seconds later. Apparently the WWE hadn't yet believed that Maven could wrestle a long match and so made this a rather infuriating joke of a fight.

      Controversial Muslim wrestler Muhammad Hassan fights Jerry Lawler next, and it all goes exactly as you'd expect. It does help make Hassan the monster heel that he deserves to be, though.

      Stemming from a feud where Snitsky caused Kane's baby to die, the two have a brutal fight that is admittedly a bit too long, but it is visceral and surprisingly quite exciting too.

      The main event has Triple H, Edge, Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho, Batista and Randy Orton competing in an Elimination Chamber match for the vacant World Heavyweight Championship. What's more, Shawn Michaels is the Special Guest Referee. This match has numerous combustible elements and is extremely long and very exciting; the best match on an otherwise pretty duff card.
