TNA Hardcore Justice 2011: TNA Heavyweight Championship
Sting (c) vs Kurt Angle
My god, this was bad. Before I watched this, I wasn't expecting too much, but I was expecting a decent showing from both men. It seemed like everyone in the arena was half-assing this though. The wrestlers, the commentators and even the crowd negatively affected the match.

In a nutshell, the random use of finishers was horrendous, the ending made no sense, the commentators were lazy and sounded like they had better stuff to do, Angle's selling of his bad ankle was really bad and many other problems. I could go on. It looks like it's time for both men to hang up the boots. Horrible match. Avoid like the plague.

Very good nostalgia match. RVD seemed motivated (for change) and Lynn still looks the same as always. It's amazing that this guy in late 40s works this hard, and wrestles the same style like 20 years ago. The spots were pretty much the same as always, story telling was simple, I liked this. Not the MOTYC, but still very enjoyable. ***1/4
This is the only thing in TNA in the last year or so that genuinely interests me. I'm a HUGE mark for RVD/Lynn, their match from Living Dangerously 99 is in my top 3 matches of all time, I just LOVE their chemistry for some reason. Gonna have to check this out.

Angle vs Aj at Genesis 2010

just rewatched this match. I feel it may be there best match together.

At first i didnt like it as much as the jan 4 match. but after watching both again,i love how this one has more psycholody,its longer,more moves and everything. I feel the LMS match from 2008 is there sickist, the jan 4 match is the most exciting,and the Genesis 2010 match is the most complete.

Re: Angle vs Aj at Genesis 2010

Easily there best match. If there would have a been a clean finish without Flair this would be the perfect match.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I bought and watched the TNA Twin-Pack Volume 4: Sacrifice 2011 and Slammiversary 2011. This is the first TNA DVD I purchased since the Twin-Pack Volume 2, featuring Turning Point '10 and Final Resolution '10. I've wanted to buy a TNA DVD since, but Genesis '11 was mediocre, Against All Odds was decent, Victory Road '11 was pretty bad, and Lockdown '11 was just bland. These two I remembered being pretty good, so I was pretty excited about this one. Anyhoo, my reviews:

Sacrifice 2011

Mexican America vs. Ink Inc.
Does it job I suppose, to establish MA as a new tag team. The action is pretty standard, nothing great or terrible, got people involved enough.


Brian Kendrick vs. Robbie E
For the record, I hate Brian Kendrick: he has a weird face, a weird mouth, and he seems to think that using "big words" in his promos makes them more interesting...they don't. It just comes off as pretentious, contrived, and stupid. I've felt the same way about Raven, who I actually like as a performer. This yoga schtick is part zen, part comedy, all stupid. The match itself belonged on TV, but is solid for what it is. Robbie E's reaction at the end is hilarious--"what's wrong with you bro?!?"


Mickie James vs. Madison Rayne
Solid KO match. What I liked about the ending was that it really made you unsure if Tara was going to free herself or save Madison Rayne. Though logically speaking, it would have made ZERO sense for her to help Madison, which takes away from the drama of "what is she going to do?"


Kazarian vs. Max Buck
Good X Division Title match. Nothing spectacular, but good enough.


Crimson vs. Abyss
I don't think Crimson gets enough credit as a competitor, but I understand the complaints. Nice logical storyline here, pretty good power stuff, and Crimson goes over, which is for the best.


Beer Money vs. Matt Hardy & Chris Harris
MOTN, which doesn's say much about overall quality. Hardy works well with BM, it's cool to see Harris tangling with Storm, and cool to see his competition in Roode. Solid tag match.


Tommy Dreamer vs. AJ Styles
Nowhere near as good as their "I Quit match, and the fact that this storyline, like all things TNA, went NOWHERE. The match is okay, but the finish is pretty nice. Dreamer and Styles have solid chemistry together.


Kurt Angle & Chyna vs. Jeff Jarrett & Karen Jarrett
This match was just a blast. It served a nice purpose in getting Karen out of the feud (even though she resurfaced weeks later, without Chyna there, so she could fall down steps and negate this match completely), Angle and Jarrett's exchanges were short and sweet, and it was cool to see Chyna. Sadly, she hit five moves and botched two, her first wrestling moves in a decade, which is kind of a bummer. But the action never stopped, the crowd was into it, and the finish was perfect.


Sting vs. Rob Van Dam
Ever since Sting came back in March, he has been in much better shape, had more energy, a somewhat new look, and was reinvigorated. This match is as good an apology for his debacle with RVD last year as you're going to get. No T-Shirt, no major botches, etc. Sting countered a lot of RVD's offense, RVD countered a lot of Sting's, they kept the pace moving, traded a lot of counters, brawled through the crowd a little bit. It's just a shame that the match pretty much ended out of nowhere with the two deathdrops (one botched). Three more minutes, with some real near finishers, and I this would have been very good. But as it is, it's easily Sting's best one-on-one match since BFG '09 (which was also very good until it ended out of nowhere).


Review of Slammiversary '11 later.

Your Top 5 X-Division Matches

Title pretty much sums it up. In the 9 Year history of TNA what are your top 5 X-Division matches. Here is some stuff to consider when posting your matches:

*Your matches do not have to be ranked in any particular order (you can rank them if you like)
*You can add a few honorable mentions (Try to limit it to 3)

So here is mine (in no order):

1. Amazing Red vs. AJ Styles - TNA Asylum 2003
2. Chris Sabin vs. Petey Williams - Turning Point 2004
3. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels: Iron Man Match - Bound For Glory 2005
4. Petey Williams vs. AJ Styles vs. Chris Sabin: Ultimate X - Final Resolution 2005
5. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Samoa Joe - Unbreakable 2005

Honorable Mention:
Suicide vs. Lethal vs. Creed vs. Sabin vs. Shelley: King of the Mountain - Slammiversary 2009
Senshi vs. Shelley vs. Dutt vs. Starr vs. Lethal: Paparazzi Championship Series - Turning Point 2006

I for Matt Hardy (A Matt Hardy guy since '99):
