Nice tribute to Gail, Triple G. I don't remember all her matches that wel, but will put on a top 5list as well.

1) Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong (No DQ, Final Resolution 08) **** (best NA women's match ever?)
2) Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong (Impact after FR) ***3/4
3) Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong (Turning Point 07) ***3/4 (E-P-I-C)
4) Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong vs ODB (AAO 08) ***3/4
5) Gail Kim vs Awesome Kong (Impact, few months back) ***1/4

All I can say is thank you Gail Kim for these great matches and the rebirth of women's wrestling in NA. Yes it was Gail who lobbied for the Knockouts division and she made it was it is now.
Agreed, but Kong is getting slighted here. She's worked just as hard as Gail to deliver for the division.

Without Kong, Gail wouldn't be the star she is now, and vice versa. And it was Gail who develloped the women's division throughout her stay in TNA. Without her lobby work, I don't think there would be a Knockouts division in TNA right now. Of course girls like Traci and Hemme worked hard as well, but Gail's passion to wrestle was so big.

I often compare the Kong/Gail matches to Vader/Sting back from the early days of WCW. You had the smaller wrestler who is fast paced and does some high flying, and then you have the unstoppable monster, and that mjust made for great matches.

All of these titles are apparetnly $9.99 at all Best Buys until September 6th, looks I'm gonna have to open up the wallet. I usually wait for these type of sales anyway.

I'll probably grab the 4 08 PPV's and one from 07, most likely Slammiversary since I don't have KOTM on DVD and that match was TNA MOTY in 07 IMO.

Looks like a must buy. $10 is nothing, certainly not when it's changed in euro's. But still shipping cost will make it too expensive for me.

I wish I knew that deal BEFORE I went to Best Buy the other night to get Slammiversary (08's event), might have to go back down there.

Slammiversary 2008 DVD

Petey/Kaz: ***1/4.
Gail, ODB & Roxxi/Beautiful People & Moose: **
LAX/Team 3D: **1/4.
Kong's Open Challenge: n/a
Angle/Styles: ***3/4.
King of the Mountain: ***


Favorite match: Angle vs. Styles.

The Good: - Kaz & Petey had a sweet opener and did a great job at getting the crowd excited more. The chemistry between them was a lot more better then I thought it be. Abyss' return after the match wasn't quite bad either.

- Tag matches that are watchable out of both the Knockouts & LAX/Team 3D matches. Not all good but decent efforts.

- Angle vs. Styles was a very good match. Best thing that would come on the show for me. The two wrestlers put out something fresh (and better then their first crappy Impact match, two years ago) in giving how different their styles are. They got it going to a nice start for their series of matches in the year.

- Solid King of the Mountain match. I wouldn't put it up to the great showing of say last year's KOTM. But I still enjoyed some of the exchanges that takes place in the match.

The Bad: - Black Machismo & So Cal Val wedding is one segment that I would not look at again. Cheesy, lame & it went to drag out too long about says it all for me.

- Awesome Kong's Open Challenge is nothing to see. There have been a lot better Kong sqaushes, imo. So unless you like to see an Elvis impersonator, I'd pass.

- Extras are pretty much just a ton of interviews and how they set up the show. Even though, I mark for Jake "The Snake" Roberts getting an interview. A lot of the extras fall flat for going back to see.

Final Thoughts: When it came to the wrestling of the show this year, this might be one of the better TNA pay per views. Too bad, there was junk segments in between of it or the show would of look a lot more decent to probably some others. I've seen worse though, so I was fine with this offering.

Good review, I agree about the Dutt/Lethal segment. It sucked really badly.

My Ratings

Petey/Kaz-***1/2-***3/4
Womens Tag-**1/2
LAX/3D-***
Kong Challenge-*
Angle/Styles-****
KOTM-***1/2

I thought it was a great show, crowd kinda sucked tho for some of it.

If you can find it, Global Impact is also $10 at Best Buy. It's an in-store only DVD, so it's not up on the Best Buy website.

Hopefully Best Buy is being gracious with a sale and it's not something like there is no demand and they have too many DVDs in stock. I fear the latter.

I might buy AAO and FR 2008.
