The two 04 PPVs are definately worth picking up. I still say Turning Point is one of their best shows ever.

Right folks, I've got a load of TNA superstar and ebst of DVDs, but no actual PPV's on DVD. I'm checking out the "Epic Anthology" of Victory Road 04, Turning Point 04 and Lockdown 05 for 30-thats $60. Is it worth it for that money, or is that too steep. I notice in the states it was only $25, so I might hold on and get it off ebay or something.

Problem is, I already have quite a lot fo the matches on DVD already...

Victory Road
Jarrett vs Hardy-NWA Title Ladder Match (Jeff Hardy DVD)
Petey vs AJ-X Title (X Division Vol.1 DVD)
Monster's Ball (Bloodiest Brawls)
X Division Gauntlet (X Division Vol.1 DVD)

Turning Point
Jarrett/Nash/Hall vs AJ/Hardy/Savage (Jeff Hardy DVD)
AMW vs XXX (Bloodiest Brawls DVD)

Lockdown
AJ vs Abyss (AJ Vol.2 & Bloodiest Brawls DVD)
Raven vs Hardy (Hardy DVD)
Xscape Match (X Division Vol.1 DVD)

So worth a purchase, or is the price way too much?

Wow. 60 bucks. I'd definitely say no. You already have all the best matches from the 3 PPVs so don't waste your money. Plus that's just way too much money...

Yeah definitely stay away from that, you pretty much have all the best matches already.

The only other really great match from the set is Petey/Sabin, and it's not worth paying that much for just that one match.

TNA Against All Odds 2008


1. AJ Styles and Tomko vs. BG James and Bullet Bob Armstrong (for the TNA Tag Team Championship)
This match was what it was, but ended up being better than I thought it would be and it seemed like Bullet Bob was really trying out there. Tomko and AJ carried this to the best they could with the time they were given and it wasn't that bad. I liked the show of respect at the start of the for marine vets BG and Bob. *1/4

2. Payton Banks vs. Tracie Brooks
I don't really get why they threw this on PPV but like the previous match it was better than I expected. Everything about it was pretty average and seemed more like a WWE women's match (catfight) than a knockouts match. But still watchable as it was short and kept a good pace. *

3. Petey Williams vs. Scott Steiner (Case vs. Case)
This was a good-solid match and I thought it did a great job of putting over Petey. Why in the beginning he was kind of a pansy but after making a comeback he looked like a legit contender for Steiner, to the point I thought he may win. Good action and good showing by both men. Something else this match did was confirm that Steiner still hits a beautiful belly-to-belly . ***

4. James Storm vs. Eric Young (Drinking Championship)
Another really good match with lots of back and forth action! I think these two shocked everybody with how good their matches were including me. Though it was short at only around 8 minutes the spent that time going all out with a great pace. Easily the best "Drinking Championship Match" in TNA history . Good
stuff and really underrated ***

5. ODB vs. Awesome Kong (Knockout Championship)
This was a decent match that was kind of a disappointment. That's not saying it was bad but lets say if it was on TV it would be a good match but on PPV this was pretty meh. But I admit we needed a little break in the action of Gail vs. Kong and ODB was a good choice **

6. Abyss vs. Judas Mesias (Barbed Wire Massacre 2)
I remember that the arena this event was held in wasn't going to allow this match and I would have been pissed if I attented this show. But onto the match, it was very good and entertaining. Some of the sick spots including Judas falling belly first on a barbed wire board and being chokeslammed onto one. I expected there to be more blood and that's my only complaint with this match. Not as good as the first one but still enjoyable! ***1/4

7. Booker T vs. Robert Roode

Now this is a "Grudge Match", these guys just went out and beat the hell out of each other. Sorry to say that this match was probably their best PPV showing during the feud but that takes nothing away from the match. Up until they got counted out the match was going great and well on its way to the four star range. But it didn't reach that point but still a very solid showing from both men ***

8. Jay Lethal and The Motorcity Machine Guns vs. Team 3D and Johnny Devine (Street Fight for the X Division Championship)
Very good showing but all 6 men involved. Both teams looked like a million bucks out there. Full of nonstop action and some amazing spots like Ray piledriving a blow-up doll ()this match was great fun to watch. Team 3D really put over Lethal in this match and told a great underdog story. Great match ***3/4

9. Christian Cage vs. Kurt Angle w/ Samoa Joe as Special Enforcer (TNA World Heavyweight Championship)
Now this is a main event! Early this year these two really showed they have great chemistry together and that's hard to deny after watching the trilogy of matches they had a few months back. It started out with some great back and forth technical wrestling that involved alot of counters, headlocks and some nice ground work. The pace quickened when the two went to the outside and the pace remained fast and perfect imo the rest of the match. Great reversals, great action and some very good near-falls. This is everything we expected it to be and more with the only down side the ending. Joe also helped out the match by messing with Kurt and such. Had the match had a legit ending this could have easily been one of the best matches in TNA history!
****1/4-****1/2 I'm still having a hard time deciding on which rating I should give this match, ****1/2 seems too high with the finish and ****1/4 doesn't seem worthy of the awesomeness of this match. I'll settle on a final rating when I rematch the DVD.

Conclusion: All things considered it was a great show. Too bad the first couple of matches were kind of lame or else this may have been remembered as one of their best PPVs ever instead of just one of the best of 2008 so far. Once we got to the 3rd match everything on the card delivered including the classic main event. I'd personally recommend this PPV as it's a great watch!
8/10

Against All Odds 2008 was definately a step up from 2007's AGA. God that show was awful. Easily one of the worst in TNA history, but 2008 came back nicely with a very well put together card.

- AJ/Tomko vs. BG/Bullet was way better than I expected, and I really liked the finish. All things considered it was surprisingly decent

- Traci vs. Peyton I thought was a nice grudge match with some good build. They kept it short and just let the girls brawl, which was cool. I wish they'd let Traci wrestle more as she's pretty fun to watch (for more reasons than one obviously)

- Petey vs. Steiner - I loved this match. I know some people will think I'm overrating it, but it was honestly one of my favorite matches on the show, probably second only to the main event. I love watching Steiner work with X Division guys. He does really well with them.

- EY vs. Storm - These two tend to have good matches whenever they lock up. I really enjoyed this feud. It was purely for comedy, which I was fine with, and like I said, the match was good. Their match from Turning Point was slightly better though.

- Kong vs. ODB - I really enjoyed this match too. People seemed to immediately compare it to Gail/Kong and kind of wrote this one off as disappointing because it didn't live up to that, but I thought it was a good show of power as they made ODB look like a reasonable match for Kong in terms of her strength.

- Barbedwire Massacre II - It's a shame they weren't allowed to have this match at the arena live. The fact that it was taped at Orlando kind of brought it down a bit, but it was still really good. Not as good as the 1st, but definately Judas' best showing in TNA.

- Booker vs. Roode - They never really allowed these guys to have a show stealing match, which kind of surprises me because I think they could have if they were given the chance. This match was good though, and I thought the ending was perfect because it meant Booker was going to have to get Roode in a situation where he can't escape if he wanted to get his revenge. (Strap match at DX, Cage at Lockdown)

-Lethal/Guns vs. Team 3D - This was a really fun match with some cool hardcore spots and a great showing from Lethal, who really looked like a major hero by the end of it. The only thing missing was one really big spot where it seemed like the X Division was truly dead. They should have done something where Lethal kicked out of the 3D or something big like that. But still very entertaining overall.

Angle vs. Christian - Loved it. Fantastic main event, probably TNA's best PPV main event of the year so far (althought I think Booker/Joe has the potential to top it) The Tomko turn was well done too.

Basically, this show had nothing overly fantastic except the main event, but there was nothing too bad, and the things I thought would be bad turned out ok.

Match Rankings:
1) Angle vs. Christian
2) Petey vs. Steiner
3) Abyss vs. Judas
4) Lethal/Guns vs. Team 3D
5) Kong vs. ODB
6) Booker vs. Roode
7) EY vs. Storm
8) Traci vs. Peyton
9) AJ/Tomko vs. BG/Bullet
