Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
Steel Asylum has no business being there. A a stupid spectacle match that had no rhyme reason it's tolerable to see dudes hit that super stiff cage. That's it.
Nor does Sabin vs Shelley, as both certainly had better outings than that. (Sabin vs London, Sabin vs Lynn 2/3 falls, Shelley vs Shocker)
The contract 4 way is great. Where that PPV still felt flat in too many areas, that actually gave the night a "classic" X Division match in the vein of the Asylum/early Impact years.
Best Ultimate X ever. Or at least tied w/Ultimate X II. So, fitting.
Unbreakable three way sucks. Predictable, lame choice. Where in the HELL is Styles vs Joe from Turning Point? Or Styles vs Daniels Iron Man I? Those are the two best X Division matches in company history.
Felt like they just wanted to randomly diversify the list instead of going for what makes for a stronger, truer example. Can't be wrong when the same people were constantly killing it once upon a time. (Joe vs Daniels vs Styles option had seemingly endless top quality matches. Not counting my displeasure w/the first. Go figure.)
You suck the blood of the afflicted.Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.
