I don't think that ****1/4+ is overrated at all for this great opener. For me it's ****1/4, but nearer to ****. I think it's just the kinda you like or not.. Some like spotfests, some prefer ols school matches.. It's not over/underrating, it's just an opinion.

Against All Odds 2008 was pretty good. Not amazing, but it was a MAJOR improvement over 2007, which I hold up as one of TNA's worst PPVs.

Matches:
AJ Styles/Tomko vs. BG James/Bullet Bob: Tag Titles - Better than I expected, but still not that great. Bob actually looked more motivated than his son in this match. Sad. The finish was really cool, but that's about it for this one.

Traci Brooks vs. Payton Banks - Solid & fun brawl between the two girls.

Scott Steiner vs. Petey Williams; Winner Gets Both Feast or Fired Cases - Very good match up. Its probably one of my more favorite undercard matches from a TNA PPV this year. I like watching Steiner interact with X Division guys as he meshes with them well.

Eric Young vs. James Storm: TNA Drinking Championship - Good solid match with the return of Rhino making for a nice moment.

Awesome Kong vs. ODB: Knockout Title - I thought this was a really good power match between the two girls. Alot of people seemed to be hard on it, but I really liked it.

Abyss vs. Judas Messias: Barbedwire Massacre - Unfortunately the match was taped about a week prior during the Impact tapings because the SC sports commission or something wouldn't allow the match to take place in their venue. It's not as memorable as the 1st BWM, but still a really good and violent match.

Booker T vs. Robert Roode - A good intense matchup. These two could have stolen the show at a PPV if they were ever given the oppurtunity just because the feud was so intense. But this match was really good. I won't give it away, but you might not like the finish. I didn't have a problem with it, but most people did.

Jay Lethal & The Guns vs. Team 3D & Devine: Streetfight (X Title & Future of X Division up for Grabs) - This was a really good match up and a strong performance from Jay Lethal who came off like a real hero in this one. I think some people overrate it, but it still a highlight of the show.

Kurt Angle vs. Christian Cage: World Title - Awesome match. It's about on par with their FR08 match and WAY better than their match at AGA 07. Having Joe as enforcer added a little bit as well. Strong main event.

Like I said, the show was really good. The main event was the standout match, and most overthing else was pretty good. The weakest match was the opener, and even that was ok for what it was. X Title, Knockout Title, Petey/Steiner, Barbedwire Massacre, & Booker/Roode were all pretty good match ups and it made for an action filled show.

Match Rankings:
1) Angle vs. Cage
2) Petey vs. Steiner (some might say I'm overrating, but I really liked this match)
3) Lethal/Guns vs. Team 3D
4) Abyss vs. Judas
5) Booker vs. Roode
6) Kong vs. ODB
7) Young vs. Storm
8) Traci vs. Payton
9) AJ/Tomko vs. Bob/BG


Destination X 2008 was nothing too special overall, but it had some really good matches, and nothing terrible.

Opener of LAX vs. The Guns vs. Rock & Rave was a very action packed and exciting match up. If you love highspots, and crazy X Division action, then you'll enjoy this quite a bit.

Jay Lethal vs. Petey Williams for the X Title, IMO, is one of the better X Title matches of 2008. It's probably second only to Kaz/Petey from Slammy. Very good match.

Kaz & Eric Young vs. Black Reign & Rellik - Solid tag team match. Kaz & Young were able to make it fun, and this was the debut of Super Eric, which actually came off well.

Awesome Kong vs. Gail Kim vs. ODB: Knockouts Title - One of the better Knockout title matches since the creation of the division. It was very good.

Curry Man & Shark Boy vs. Team 3D: Fishmarket Streetfight - Team 3D was doing the weight in thing (which sucked because there is NO WAY they are under 300lbs!) As for the match, you really have to be a fan of comedy matches to appreciate it. I'm a person who actually enjoyed the 4 Doinks vs. Bam Bam's Team from Survivor Series 1993, so I thought this match was a hoot. However, if you don't like comedy matches, then just skip over this.

Roode vs. Booker: Strap Match - Roode & Booker had Payton & Traci in their corners respectively, and the loser's valet would have to get whipped. The match itself was a little short, but still solid. Its what happened after the match that really got my attention. I honestly thought it was one of Robert Roode's best heel moments. So if you didn't like the match, or thought it was too short, I think what happened afterwards made up for it.

Rhino vs. James Storm: Elevation X - EX is the most dangerous match ever and its scary to watch. It's not as memorable as the AJ/Rhino match from the year before, and they tried to copycat some of the spots, so this isn't anything too special. Thankfully nobody was hurt, and to be honest, I hope they never do this match again.

Samoa Joe, Christian Cage, Kevin Nash vs. Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Tomko: For a tag team main event this one was pretty good. The Angle Alliance went into the match at a 3-2 disadvantage for the 1st 5 minutes via losing the Best of 3 Series on the previous Impact. THere are some good segments during the PPV where Angle, AJ, & Tomko dispute the decision since in the final match (Cage/Angle SSOS) it looked as if Angle actually won & not Christian. In the end, Cornette opted to not reverse the decision.

Having them at a disadvantage made for a great moment where all the men got knocked out except for Joe, and he was able to confront Angle one on one as he made his way down to the ring. Basically this whol ematch was set up to build to Joe vs. Angle at Lockdown, and it provided some good action, so for a tag team main event, it was actually pretty good.

Destination X 2008 is not an amazing show, but still enjoyable. I'd say its about on par with Against All Odds. Neither show will ever get ranked up as two of TNA's best ever, but I don't think anybody would regret watching them.

Match Rankings:
1) Lethal vs. Petey
2) LAX vs. MCMG vs. R&R
3) Joe/Nash/Christian vs. Angle Alliance
4) Kong vs. Gail vs. ODB
5) Booker vs. Roode
6) Curry/Sharky vs. Team 3D
7) Kaz/Young vs. Reign/Rellik
8) Elevation X

Bound For Glory 2007 DVD

LAX vs. Triple X (Ultimate X): ***
Fight for the Right: *1/2.
Styles & Tomko vs. Creed & Killings: ***
Lethal vs. Daniels: ***1/4.
Steiner Brothers vs. Team 3D (2 out of 3 Tables Match): *3/4.
Knockouts Gauntlet Battle Royal: *1/4.
Joe vs. Cage: ****
Abyss vs. Rhino vs. Black Reign vs. Raven (Monster's Ball): **
Angle vs. Sting: ***1/2.


Favorite Match: Angle vs. Sting. I say Joe/Cage was easily the best match of the night, imo. But I continue to grow a soft spot for the main event of the show as I thought Kurt did a great job taking Sting to what I think was one of his better single matches in the last couple of years.

The Good: - One of the better TNA PPV's for last year, in fact maybe the best for them. Very enjoyable show.

- Samoa Joe vs. Christian Cage on this show is still my favorite TNA match for 2007. I like it more then Destination X match they did (which was great) in the same year. I feel they do a great job putting a lot more engery into this match.

- DVD has a tiny better set of extras then the usual for a TNA PPV DVD video.

The Bad: - Show isn't quite so perfect. I found the tables match boring and stuff like Fight for the Right and the Knockout Gauntlet doesn't hold up so well with me. Monster's Ball lacked to be more exciting to watch as I've seen enough Abyss gimmick matches by that time.

- Extras still is filled with a lot of nothing, despite there is more to see. Nothing to comeback to when you finish with them, after the first watch.


Picked this up because my video tape of it went bad. But in the end, like the show more then ever now.

I thought the match was great and ****1/4 is a fine rating for it, Meltzer gave it the same. I see alot of other matches being much more overrated from this year TBH.

Didn't Meltzer give it ***3/4?

I think he just means people gave it ****1/2 and still grant it that rating.

^No Meltzer gave it ****1/4 actually.

Well if someone actually thinks it was ****1/2, then I don't see why it should matter. I know my rating has nothing do with anybody else's, can't speak for other people tho.

I can see why people give it ***3/4 or **** tho, I just think it was a little better and definitely a strong ****1/4.(That's why I said I'd go higher before going lower)

Never liked Joe/Cage series TBH. Joe controlled 90% of all 4 matches they had (Destination X, No Surrender, BFG and Fifht for your right). almost like and extended squash.

I loved the Joe/Cage matches, those 2 have incredible chemistry.

No, because the general consensus seems to be ****1/4-****1/2 which I personally think is too high.
