Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
The biggest problem with Angle/Anus (aside from Taz and Tenay) was that fucking key(?!), I mean, Angle threw it away, then he pulled it out of his trunks... I mean, was there just one key, or two, idk... But yeah, it was a damn epic match. Anderson's heel run was excellent then.
Yeah the key thing got me. Rickey's explanation probably makes sense but judging by how excited Tenay got I assumed the throw was legit. It's not like they couldn't have just had him climb over the cage anyway.
And oh god, Taz and Tenay. They were abysmal. Just no reaction to anything, at all. Going from that to Don West in the 05 Ultimate X probably made it even worse. Give me JB over Taz anyday.
Against All Odds 2012 : Austin Aries vs Alex Shelley
This was awesome. Really fun and really quick paced all the way through without feeling that spotty. There was just lots of little things I noticed which were great, like Aries being a dick coming back to bite him on the ass, mocking Shelley's groggy punches or milking the pendulum elbow (liked the touch of him going for it quickly the second time). The under the ring spot was fun and I rarely see that kind of thing which was a bonus. Shelley was a great babyface counterpart too and the fact they only had one singles PPV match this year is criminal. Finishing stretch was the highlight though, all the nearfalls were pretty believable, especially since I forgot the finish leading into this and there was definitely one where I thought it was done. Probably Aries' best title defense.
