Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
I just struggled with it. I mean it wasn't No Surrender bad or anything and was way better than their Lockdown match this year but yeah. I'm a bit fuzzy on it but here's my review anyway:
Went back and watched Kurt Angle vs Jeff Hardy at Victory Road this year again. Keeping my rating at ***1/4. I tried to like this, I really did. But from the get go where Taz mentioned on commentary Angle might go for the legs to ground Hardy I had my doubts. The opening bit is a fun little collection of exchanges right until Jeff takes a bump on the guard rail. I saw Kurt take a couple shots on Jeff's legs and ankle but I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up. Still it was a better than usual match. Then the finish just lost me. Twist of Fate, goes for a Swanton and Kurt miraculously jumps up and belly to bellys Jeff. Kurt then takes another two twist of fates (which are both met by mild reactions from Tenay and Taz as well, adding even less to the nearfalls) before Jeff finally hits the swanton but Kurt rolls him up for the screwy finish going into Lockdown. I think I had this on par with the Lockdown match, maybe slightly behind. I'm not really in any hurry to catch it though to double check. I might go watch Aries/Bully and Aries/Shelley again and put some proper ratings on them.
