Reception[edit | edit source]

The event was generally well received by critics. The Sun praised the shock return of Edge and his and Cena's subsequent World Championship victories. However they highly criticized the poor quality of the casket match and the Josh Hooper storyline, which they regarded as "tasteless". The Team Kevin McAlmond vs. Team Jesse Dern match was viewed as the best wrestling match of the night. Overall they gave the event a rating of 7 out of 10.

PWI named the PPV Worst Event of 2008 and heavily criticized Jake Wilson for his poor acting and lackluster wrestling ability.
