Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
I wish I knew that deal BEFORE I went to Best Buy the other night to get Slammiversary (08's event), might have to go back down there.
Slammiversary 2008 DVD
Gail, ODB & Roxxi/Beautiful People & Moose: **
LAX/Team 3D: **1/4.
Kong's Open Challenge: n/a
King of the Mountain: ***
Favorite match: Angle vs. Styles.
The Good: - Kaz & Petey had a sweet opener and did a great job at getting the crowd excited more. The chemistry between them was a lot more better then I thought it be. Abyss' return after the match wasn't quite bad either.
- Tag matches that are watchable out of both the Knockouts & LAX/Team 3D matches. Not all good but decent efforts.
- Angle vs. Styles was a very good match. Best thing that would come on the show for me. The two wrestlers put out something fresh (and better then their first crappy Impact match, two years ago) in giving how different their styles are. They got it going to a nice start for their series of matches in the year.
- Solid King of the Mountain match. I wouldn't put it up to the great showing of say last year's KOTM. But I still enjoyed some of the exchanges that takes place in the match.
The Bad: - Black Machismo & So Cal Val wedding is one segment that I would not look at again. Cheesy, lame & it went to drag out too long about says it all for me.
- Awesome Kong's Open Challenge is nothing to see. There have been a lot better Kong sqaushes, imo. So unless you like to see an Elvis impersonator, I'd pass.
- Extras are pretty much just a ton of interviews and how they set up the show. Even though, I mark for Jake "The Snake" Roberts getting an interview. A lot of the extras fall flat for going back to see.
Final Thoughts: When it came to the wrestling of the show this year, this might be one of the better TNA pay per views. Too bad, there was junk segments in between of it or the show would of look a lot more decent to probably some others. I've seen worse though, so I was fine with this offering.
