Yes, I changed Over the Limit to Judgment Day. I miss the older WWE PPVs like Bad Blood and such. Anyway, this looks like the same card as Extreme Rulez. This card has 2 iron man matches.

Match 1. Iron Man - Bryan vs. Slater  Intercontinental Championship
If the last Iron Man match I had was any indication, this one should be great. Slater tapped to the Lebell Lock to give Bryan a 1-0 lead with 10 minutes left. After a hanging suplex, Bryan took a 2-0 lead. Slater went for a high risk move and missed. Bryan took advantage and scored his third fall with 6 minutes left. Slater hit his finisher and finally scored 30 seconds later. Bryan hit a Northern lights suplex to take a 4-1 lead. Bryan got his fifth fall after a crucifix pin. Wow, was I wrong about this Iron Man match? Bryan dominated all 15 minutes.

Match 2. Submission - Shawn Michaels vs. Ziggler  US Championship
Looks like Orton moved on to something better. The fact that the AI doesn't use many submissions to end matches makes me question why this is a submission match. Does Ziggler even have a submission? HBK is trying every submission possible - abdominal stretch, wrist lock. He finally wins with the Sharpshooter.

Match 3. Steel Cage - Miz vs. Nash vs. Gabriel
I will be controlling Miz in this match because I want Nash and Gabriel to drop in the ranks. This should be a little more difficult than a standard triple threat. Or not because I was able to escape while Gabriel had Nash in a submission hold.

Match 4. Ladder - LOD vs. Demolition  Tag Team Championships
I've determined that the losing team will be released. If the pattern holds, then LOD will lose their titles. Man, the AI doesn't like using the ladders as weapons. All they want to do is set it up in the middle of the ring. Animal just stared at Smash as he pulled down the titles. See ya LOD.

Match 5. Big Show vs. Undertaker  World Heavyweight Championship
These two have had pretty good matches. This is one rivalry I wouldn't mind seeing continue. Show is a very dominate champion. He can manhandle pretty much anyone. He reversed Taker's body slam and clocked him with the right punch to retain.

After the match, Otunga and Harris came out. Otunga signaled at Show that he's coming for the title. Oh jeez.

Main Event. Iron Man - Batista vs. John Cena  WWE Championship
This Iron Man match better be better than the first. Rey came to ringside, cheering on Batista...I think. This match is definitely not a one-side fight. 5 minutes in and neither man scored yet. Cena scored the first point with 9:40 left. Batista tied it up with 8:20 left after a Batista Bomb. Cena took the lead after a snapmare with 6:23 left; 2-1. Dave tied it back up a minute later; 2-2. This is how an Iron Man match should be. Cena hit a superplex, a leg drop off the top rope, then AA to score his third fall. Batista landed his fourth, or even fifth, Batista Bomb to tie it at 3 with 1:50 left. Cena quickly took the lead back with 1:34 left. ANOTHER Batista Bomb tied it back up with 55 seconds remaining. The match ended in a tie...which gives Batista a successful title defense.

Recap: This PPV had more stipulations than Extreme Rulez. I'm not ok with that. The first Iron Man match was a landslide. Slater put up no fight. I think I need to up the AI difficulty to legend because they are fucking stupid. Wow, the last Iron Man match was very entertaining. It literally went down to the wire. I don't like the draw, but it should lead to a rematch.
