Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

^^ I'd flip-flop 1 and 2, but other than that, I agree with that list. I need to see Lethal/Petey from DX '08 as I've heard that's a good match as well.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Yeah Christian turned heel and cost Sting the title and then the whole Rhino/Christian program started.

For some reason, it always seems like Hard Justice just gets forgotten about. 05 had quite a few matches right around *** or so, but nothing really that great. 06 was okay, but gets put away cause of the fire incident. 07 was probably my least favorite TNA PPV of the year.

I'm hoping 08 can be a little different, looks like their making it more of a big deal this year. Maybe their aiming for a road to WM type deal with VR, HJ, and NS all before BFG in October.(Since they started the Joe/Sting feud at VR anyway)

Now only if they changed the freaking name of the show.

It was pretty average to AJ and Daniels' standards. They and LAX didnt have good chemistry and had some communication problems had they bothced few things in the middle. But as any other AJ/Daniels matches, it was easy ***1/2+. AJ brought out SSP, which made the match even more entertaining.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Part 1 of 15 of my Ultimate X reviews!

Chris Sabin (c) vs. Michael Shane vs. Frankie Kazarian – Ultimate X – TNA X Division Championship – Weekly PPV 58 (8/20/03)

A week before, there was a ladder match to determine the #1 contender for Chris Sabin’s TNA X Division Championship between Michael Shane and Frankie Kazarian. Chris Sabin interfered and grabbed the contract. However, TNA’s Management Consultant Don Callis walked away with the contract. Later that night, he came up with “the ultimate idea”. He designed a match in which four fifteen-foot high steel poles were tied to the steel posts and on top of those poles, two steel wires stretched across the poles on the opposite corner. They would put the belt where the two wires meet and the competitors would have to shimmy across the wires to get the belt. It was going to be “ultimate danger”, “ultimate excitement”, “ultimate drama”, and most of all; it was going to be Ultimate X!

The match starts with some really good fast-paced action. Kazarian had Sabin on his shoulders and Shane worked across the wires. Shane’s right arm was within reach of the belt, but he didn’t try to grab the belt, that would make too much sense. Instead, he gave Sabin a botched hurricanrana. Moments later, as Shane and Kazarian were working their way across the wires, Sabin gave them both a springboard dropkick knocking them off the wires! Sabin then gave both Shane and Kazarian chair shots to their backs. Sabin then drove Shane’s head through the chair that was set up in between the top and middle turnbuckle, busting Shane open. Kazarian then gave Sabin a Yakuza kick to the head while Sabin was holding the chair close to his face. The chair was then set up in the center of ring and Sabin slammed Kazarian on the chair and it flattened the chair. With Shane and Kazarian down, Sabin worked his way across the wires. Shane then got up and gave Sabin a chair shot, knocking Sabin off the wires. Sabin, however, wasn’t the only thing that fell off the wires. The belt fell and they had to put it back up, which took a couple minutes. Once the match officially restarted, Sabin had Shane in a fireman’s carry and Kazarian did a sunset flip over Shane and Sabin, which was botched, and Sabin managed to roll through with Shane still on his shoulders and he gave Kazarian a dropkick. Sabin then had Kazarian in an Alabama Slam position and Shane gave Kazarian a dropkick to the head, and Kazarian then somehow gave Sabin a piledriver. Moments later, with Sabin and Shane hanging from the wires, Sabin gave Shane a powerbomb from the wires! As Sabin then tried to work his way across the wires, Kazarian tried springboard off the ropes and give Sabin a spear, but he slipped off the ropes. With Sabin just kinda sitting there, Kazarian gave Sabin a spear off the top rope. Kazarian, Sabin, and, of course, the belt fell from the wires onto the mat. The belt then had to be put back up AGAIN and the match had to be restarted… AGAIN! You’d think they’d be smart enough to buckle the belt where both wires met other than just across one the wire in the center. This probably would have prevented the belt from falling… TWICE! Anyways, once the match restarted, Shane and Kazarian climbed up the same pole, but Kazarian sent Shane from the pole to the arena floor. Sabin and Kazarian then worked their way across the same wire as the belt was on, and either of them could have easily grabbed the belt, but both men fell. I’m surprised the belt didn’t fall again too as it looked like it was about to. Sabin and Kazarian then tried to work their way across the wires, but out of nowhere, Shane rapidly got across the wire and easily grabbed the belt for the win and he became the X Division champion for the first time!

The match started out good enough, but the botches and the belt falling twice killed it. It was no surprise that after this match, the structure of the Ultimate X was slightly changed in that the wires would be secured at where they met as opposed to being two separate wires like it was in this match. Shane overselling then no-selling kinda hurts the match too, but not by much. There was cool spots here and there, but the belt falling killed all the flow that the match. It was almost to the point that once the match ended that I kinda didn’t care. With all that said, I give all three men a thumbs up for their efforts because they did the best they could for the first ever Ultimate X.

**3/4

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Great reviw Chiller, I had no idea that Don Callis was credited with the on screen creation of Ultimate X. (Even though I think in reality it was Jeremy Borash or somebody who came up with the idea)

Another Random Match Rating

Joe/Christian-BFG 07-****1/4-****1/2 (Another match I flip flop on these 2 ratings, it's atleast a very high ****1/4
for me)
