Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

With VR tommorrow, I decided to watch last year's show tonight.

X Gauntlet-****
Bashams/VKM-**
Rhino/Storm-*** (Enjoyable brawl, not as good as their NS match tho)
MGMG/Lynn & Backlund-**1/2 (Keeping Backlund out for most of this made it pretty decent)
EY/Gail vs Roode/Brooks-**3/4-***
Christian/Wildcat-***1/4-***1/2 (Great match that was built extremely well, but the finish blows)
Sting/Abyss vs AJ/Tomko-***
Team 3D vs Joe/Angle-***3/4 (Angle and Joe are a great team and this match tells a great story. Ray really owns in this match as well, fairly underrated.)

Overall this is a very entertaining show, a couple of screwy or underwhelming finishes tho hurt it slightly IMO. And just a few too many tag matches, with that said tho it's still the 5th or 6th best TNA PPV of 07.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

VR07 was very underrated and I loved that Harris/Christian match as well as the Ultimate X Gauntlet.

The match of Champions was pretty cool too. I like how it turned into a Triple Threat match with The Steiners taking out Devon and Joe/Angle turning on each other.

But tomorrow's show has potential to blow last year's out of the water. Seriously, I am so excited for this PPV. The card looks amazing.

X Gauntlet - **** (Awesome spotfest. It was good to see Triple X back.)

Does anyone knows why they used the Elevation X strutcure?.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Yeah Cage/Harris was so great until the finish, the whole Dustin Rhodes thing was crap and knowing that it lead to Black Reign being born makes it even worse.

One thing about the match of champions that was so great was the storytelling, how everybody worked together until they saw their personal goal slipping away was great. Ray was so great in that match, like when he went over to Joe's corner when he dazed and pretended to be trying to tag in and stuff.

Also his little shout outs are very funny, like when Angle was about to backdrop him he yelled "Oh crap" and then when he got germaned he said "I don't like you Kurt." They were just funny things that added to the match.

But tommorrow's show does look seriously awesome.

I think the reasoning was that there was potential for nobody to be elminated and you could have up to 10 people on the X and there was no way the regular structure could support all that weight.

No Surrender and Slammi. Great PPV's.
Victory Road was entertaining too, Lockdown was average and the rest was below average.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Other than Sacrifice and BFG, the best 07 shows are No Surrender, Genesis, Slammi, Victory Road, and Final Resolution in that order IMO.

Lockdown is pretty good but it's just those 2 matches that really kill the vibe, but Lethal Lockdown and the Xscape match are both very good. Then Senshi/Starr and Daniels/Lynn are pretty solid as well, it's not as bad as some people make it out to be anyway.

I forgot Genesis, great PPV. On the same level as Slammi.
