The tournament was pretty good overall. It had it's high points but it also had some low points which is uncharacteristic of TPI but with the talent given, what can you do? Night 1 was solid. The undercard was hit and miss but the last 3 matches really delivered and helped elevate the show overall. Night 2 was a much better show than Night 1. The card was much more well rounded and less hit and miss. The big matches (Hero/Kingston and Taylor/Quack/Claudio) delivered and the undercard was very solid. Overall this wasn't the best TPI I've seen. In fact, it's one of the worse (second only to 2003). However, TPI is such a great tournament that it's tough to top it year after year so saying this is one of worse isn't such a terrible statement.

My breakout performer goes to Brent Albright. Albright made his IWA-MS debut and brought it the entire tournament. Decent match against Tank followed up by two good matches against Joker and Claudio. Albright has an upcoming booking at the SST and hopefully he gains more after that show.

My MVP was a tough decision and I ended up not having one because you could make serious cases for Taylor, Quack, and Claudio. All 3 guys had great matches and put on good performances. If you asked me each day to pick a MVP, my pick would probably change each day. That's how tough the decision was. Great performances by all 3 guys.

Finally, thank you Quack.
