AJ/Petey/Sabin-****3/4 (On the low end tho)

Definitely the best Ultimate X and honestly, I don't see there ever being a better one. (Hope I'm wrong)

AJ/Petey/Sabin - UX: ****1/2 - ****3/4

Like I said yesterday, I NEED to give this one another watch. I'd say it's easily the best UX match ever, with AJ&Daniels/LAX in 2nd (**** - ****1/4).

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Just watched Styles/Sabin/Petey Ultimate X, WOW what a match. I'd seen the ending to the match by itself before, but watching the whole match for the first time and it was just great.

I almost want to go *****, I'm going to go ****3/4, but unlike some of the people I think it's closer to ***** than ****1/2

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

^Agree when I first saw it I gave it ****3/4 - ***** but I went down just a little to a solid ****3/4. 1/4 - 1/2 * either way isn't that big a deal though. It's a timeless classic for sure.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Great review of TP06 Styles!

The first two TPs were awesome, two of the best PPVs in TNA history easily. The third one had some very strong matches, so its worth checking out, but they had these weird non wrestling segments that just seemed pointless. The Bikini Contest was funny though so I'll forgive that one, but VKM & Basebrawls et up could/should have been done on Impact.

Joe vs. Angle was amazing. It was a great match to end the year with and it continued the tradition of Turning Point delivering one of the best matches in TNA history (and to be fair, TP07 kind of continued it with the Gail/Kong match which is easily one of the best Women's Matches in modern times)

TP also had the PCS Match which was a pretty good opener. Sabin vs. Daniels was another strong X Title match. AMW vs. LAX was really good. I just wish that they had gotten more out of that feud. I mean they did LAX vs. AMW 6000 times after this. I don't think one or two more AMW/LAX matches before the split would have hurt. I also really liked AJ vs. Rhino. It was the first time I'd seen AJ work heel since 2003 and I enjoyed watching him. The only weak match was Sting vs Christian vs. Abyss. I don't know, but that match just didn't click.

Overall though, its a really good PPV. Angle vs. Joe II is the main reason to check it out, but alot of the other matches are really good as well, and

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

12 man elimination Tag - Victory road 2008.

Note to start off, I struggle with TNA stars names sometimes, imagine this. Don't mind me calling saying " This guy " etc... at Dani.. Curry man tripping the japanese dude. Team international put on a pretty good series of moves on my fave member of the MCMG, Chris Sabin. Shit, Team mexio's moves > team internationls . Dux is gone after Bucanero sits down on a victory roll. Nice stuff. wow! That japanese dude getiing stuck in the ropes was way awesome IMO. More nice moves by the japanese guys, I'd love to see more of them. Wow! Bucanero plants A guy with an awesome looking move, Heaps cool. Kuma is gone after the move that Kong did to Salinas on Impact 2 weeks ago. The crowd ain't reacting enough here IMO, TNA guys haven't been in for a while. Shawn Michaels eat your heart out, what a superkick from that japanese guy! FUCK! DOUBLE SINGLE LEG BOSTON GRAB ON BOTH GUNS! awesome. Nice stuff with Milano faking the low blow, He is out after a cradle shock. Nice false finishers with Shelley and Yoshino, love that octopus he did.

Yoshino gets rid of a guy as International come in forn the first time in ages. Williams with a lovely rolling german suplex, has to be seen to be believed. Team mexico own williams and Curry Man after a nice series of moves between them. Ultimo with an awesome handstand move. Curryman gone with a superbomb, Awesome. How did i know he would be eliminated out of the TNA stars though? Williams gone with a twisting senton onto the guy who is perched on his knees. 2 quick eliminations i almost missed the 2nd one. More spots continue and this is getting real awesome. LOL at Kozlov botching his pinning spot, He hardly got his feet on the ropes. Awesome false finishers follow from Yoshino and Shelley, Just awesome. Shelly wins in the end for TNA.

2nd best spotfest of the year IMO, Behind MITB IV. ****1/4!!

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

^^ Good review dude! That match was definately an exciting opener. I think some people hold it up too high (one person said it was TNA's best match in over a year...give me a break) but you wont find many openers more exciting than this.

And since I've reviewed all the Lockdown's at least once (at least I think I have) how about another Top 10!

Top Ten Best Lockdown Matches:

1) Christian Cage vs. Abyss: NWA World Championship (2006) - I love this match. I just watched it not too long ago, and it still stands as one of my personal favorite World Title matches in TNA history. It's arguably the best TNA match for both men and it was a really strong effort from both. The match borrowed from the AJ/Abyss match from 2005 and combined that with the major intensity this feud had, and it really made for one hell of a match. A friend of mine said that was the best cage match he'd seen since Bret/Owen from 1994. I don't know if I'd go that far, but it was still an amazing match up and my personal favorite Lockdown match.

2) AJ Styles vs. Abyss: Number One Contendership Match (2005)- Well since I already mentioned, I might as well go ahead and talk about this one next. IMO, this is the match that put the Lockdown concept on the map. These two had to follow 7 cage matches, and my gripe against the first Lockdown is that all the cage matches back to back just wore the crowd out by the show's end, but AJ & Abyss were able to bring them alive and put on one of the greatest matches in TNA history. It's a perfect big guy vs. little guy match, and an excellent way to cap off an interesting concept PPV.

3) Sting's Warriors vs. Jarrett's Army: Lethal Lockdown (2006)- War Games was a favorite match of mine as a kid, so when I heard TNA was bringing it back, albeit altered somewhat, I was excited. Unfortunately the first LL was a total bomb, but this was more than made up for it. This was the first one to have the roof come down with the weapons, which made for a great visual. Speaking of great visuals, how about that amazingly dangerous ladder spot on top of the cage with AJ & Storm? Incredible. Watching all that talent mesh together (AJ, Sting, Jarrett, Steiner, AMW, Rhino, & even Truth who admittedly don't like) was all really cool, and I think Steiner was the unsung hero of the match. He looked great in there. War Games was back, and I was happy. I love this match.

4) Team Angle vs. Team Cage: Lethal Lockdown (2007) - Whoa! How much main event caliber talent did they fit into this one? AJ, Angle, Sting, Jarrett, Abyss, Steiner, Rhino, Cage, Joe, and then Tomko who was starting to show some promise. It's like they said "Aw fuck it! Let's just take our 10 biggest stars & let them go nuts!" And this match was a lot of fun. Steiner doing the Frankensteiner?!?! Awesome! AJ getting thrown off the top of the cage!!! Crazy!!! And there wes some great interaction with the wrestlers and the bit they did with Jarrett was really well done. Another classic example of how good a War Games style of match can be.

5) Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe: Title vs. Career (2008) - We all wanted it. A Samoa Joe title reign, and I ordered Lockdown 2008 for the sole purpose of seeing it happen. The match itself really had a big match feel to it, which I have give props to TNA for pulling that off as Angle & Joe had already wrestled four times before. Imagine how big it would have felt if that was thier first encounter? The match itself is very unique. They tried to work an MMA style match in the begginning and then transitioned into a more classical submission style. It was very entertaining. There are people who hate it, and people who love it, so its divided the fans, but all in all I really enjoyed it, and walked away from it very happy.

6) Chris Sabin vs. Jay Lethal vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Alex Shelley vs. Shark Boy: Xscape Match for X Title (2007) - The Xscape Match has become an annual tradition for Lockdown, and a welcomed one. Now the 1st one kind of bothered me mainly because its an elimination match until it reaches the final two, yet they were breaking up each other's pins. I didn't get it (maybe I'm just nitpicking). But by this time, they had pretty gotten the format down and this was the best of the Xscape matches IMO. It introduced TNA fans to The Motor City Machine Guns as the match basically became a Lethal/Dutt vs. Sabin/Shelley tag match, which was the best part of the match for sure. This match was a great display of X Division action, and a really strong opener for this show.

7) Christopher Daniels vs. Senshi (2006) - There was no build up for this match. It was originally supposed to be Daniels vs. Liger, which I was psyched for, but Liger pulled out of the match a few weeks before the show. That disappointed me, but we were treated to the return of Daniels' former Triple X partner Low Ki....or should I say Senshi? Yeah they changed his name, but he was still a bad ass. This was a really good X Division match and a great showcase of both men's talent. It's a shame the match had no build up because they could have done some great stuff playing off of them being former partners and all, but that was out of TNA's control. Wrestling wise, this was an excellent match, even if most people don't remember it.

8) Team Cage vs. Team Tomko: Lethal Lockdown (2008) - Yet another Lethal Lockdown makes the list. What I can I say. I love this type of match. This was yet another great display of how good a War Games match can be. Many LL veterans came back, but some new faces got thrown in like Nash, Team 3D, and Matt Morgan (making his in ring debut) and they certainly added something. Great hardcore action in this one, and we got yet another crazy spot from AJ (he's insane) It's not quite as memorable as the other two, but still a very good and fun match up, and it continued to make me look forward to Lethal Lockdown every year.

9) America's Most Wanted vs. Team Canada: Tag Titles (2005) - This match would have been absolutely amazing under normal circumstances, but as I said before, the crowd got tired as this show progressed with 8 cage matches in total, and they all tried to top each other. But I still really enjoyed this match. Team Canada was sneaky and managed to keep Harris out of the match, letting Storm take a severe beating through most of it, which made for a great comeback when Harris finally got in. Some of the stuff towards the end was really great old school fun too. I really liked this match.

10) Christopher Daniels vs. Jerry Lynn (2007) - This was another really good X Division encounter, and one that I knew I would enjoy. It wasn't a fantastic match, but still a very good encounter between two verterans that know how to get it done. This match was kind of a throwback to the X Division's infancy in my eyes, so it was really cool to see.
