I'd recommend both of those shows!

They're full of good/solid matches froms start to finish. I'd be interested in what you'd rate the Angle/Cage matches.

Well TNA is promoting the sale on their website, they did so something similar with FYE last Winter as well.

If Global Impact is also only $10 I'm gonna have to pick it up, along with the 4 08 shows and one other 07 show as well. I do want KOTM 07 on DVD, but I think it might be on the new Ultimate Matches DVD and I'd like to see the match listing for that before purchasing the Slammi DVD.

I'd actually love some of these match compilation DVD's to include more stuff from the weekly PPV era.

Ah. I wasn't aware that TNA is promoting the sale so it's likely just that, a sale. I was just worried that maybe there wasn't much of a demand and Best Buy was just trying to rid their inventory.

Final Resolution (2007)




1.) Last Man Standing - Aj Styles vs Rhino -***1/4
What a way to start the show! The crowd is way into this one and the action matches the intensity of them. Ending comes after two devastating Gores by Rhino, as the ref is counting to 10, Rhino goes outside and sets up a table for the RhinoDriver, meanwhile Aj is almost up but then says "Screw You!" and stays down for the 10. Crappy ending to a otherwise great opener.

2.) X-title - Lynn vs Daniels vs Sabin - ***1/2
Great action as you would expect. Some really good nearfalls towards the end and Lynn bust out the Cradle Piledriver which I always mark for. Sabin sneaks in afterwards for a roll-up, not a fan of that ending too much but it made sense. Sabin the new champ!

3.) PCS - Shelly vs Austin Starr - **3/4
Quality matchup between these 2. I'll get to the judges lol later. After declared a draw, Nash (who was commentating again) orders them to have 5 more minutes where Shelly does a couple of fancy roll/pin combinations to pick up the win and the PCS trophy. After the match Starr talks some shit and ends up getting into a brawl with Senshi (who'd come out with the other X-guys to congratulate Shelly)

4.) James Storm vs Petey Williams - *3/4
Not a bad match but just too short. Another roll-up win in this one again. Afterwards Storm Handcuffs Petey and threatens to hit him with a bottle, Gail intervenes and gets threatened herself. She low blows the Tennessee Cowboy and starts pummeling him lol. Miss Jackie surprises everyone by coming out and taking her out. Storm and her do the Death Sentence to Kim.

5. NWA tag titles - LaX vs Team3d - *1/2
This may seem a little low but the ending is so bad I think this one deserves no higher. It was going well until a "drunk" brother runt dressed as Santa Claus came down and stumbled from the top rope onto Homicide causing Team3d to be DQ'ed. Terrible shit ending...

6. 30-Min IM 1 Contenders Match - Joe vs Angle - ****
Really looking forward to this one after their epic encounters at Genesis and Turning point. Great action throughout. At about the 5 minute mark Joe does one of his trademark Kicks in the corner nailing Angle in the side of the head. Falls are 3-2 in favor of Angle with time running out on Joe. He does a enzuguri and destroys Angle with the MB but Kurt manages to get a foot on the rope! They do some counter/reversals and Joe gets the Ankle lock on Kurt! 20 seconds remain as Angle fights to run out the clock. Joe does the Grapvine and applies ever more pressure, the crowd is eating this up. 5...4...3....2...1....0.. Angle taps but only after the clock ran out. Joe is devastated and leaves the ring as Angle celebrates. Another great matchup between these 2, not quite as good as their first 2 but still amazing.


7.) NWA title - Sting vs Cage vs Abyss - **3/4
Pretty good main event, but it suffered from the usual ME overbooking. Ref bumps, Tomko interference, swerves etc. I also didn't like the fact that the champ was taken out first, as this was an elimination style 3-way. So after that, it was a certainty that a new champ would be crowned. The ending comes when Abyss wrapping a chain around his fist, turns on Sting who had Mitchell in the Scorpion and nails him in the back of the head. Christian smiling, hits the frog splash and revives the ref to count the 3. New champ! Tomko and Cage celebrate in the ring to end the show.


Overall:
Great start to the 07 ppvs, some really good matches and another amazing Joe/Angle showdown. Some things could've been better and there were a couple more unneeded promo/segments but wrestling wise this show delivered.

Other Stuff:
During the PCS match, the judges were. Somalian Joe, a masked wrestler from the Madagascar wrestling federation lmao, Big fat naked oily guy *barfs* and Good ol' Bob Backlund. They were in charge of scoring. Joe went with Starr, Fatty went with Shelly. Now Backlund goes on this whole elaborate scoring system that had everyone in the building scratching their heads. Funny moment during this, as the crowd looked on confused and silent. One fan yells out "WHAT THE FUCK!?!?!" and everyone gets a good laugh. Backlund also calls Shelly, Alex Shelton

More VKM nonsense:
This is a 2 parter really. The first is them coming out and declaring victory against Vince. Don't know what the hell they won but whatever. This actually wasn't too bad as they raised some valid points, mentioning K-fed pinning Cena and the whole Rosie/Trump debacle from Raw and even wishing Hunter well. (he'd just fucked up his quad.) They say TNA is the future etc etc. Not too bad, but still has no place on a ppv.

Even more VKM nonsense #2:
Holy fuck this was just terrible. Christy Hemme of all people comes out and starts whining about Woman and how they're treated as disposable in the business. Her acting is SOOOOOOOOO horrible my god. The crowd is completely shitting on this chanting "WE WANT WRESTLING!" and "BORING..." Kip gets in her face and calls her a whore and that she should go back to the Strip club where they found her. She slaps him and vows revenge. GTFO why was this needed. It's bad enough to have 1 but having Christy come out right afterwards to confront VKM was an absolute bonehead idea.

VR 08
Ultimate X - **1/2+, Really sloppy imo
FMM: ***1/2, Great interaction of spots and storytelling in this match. VR 08 opener is still my TNA MOTY. Still haven't seen AJ|Styles HJ but their SV match is ***1/4 for me

Great reviw Styles, it's a pretty good event

Ratings (From what I remember)

AJ/Rhino-***1/4
Lynn/Sabin/Daniels-***1/4-***1/2
Shelley/Starr-**3/4-*** (The judging stuff is stupid tho)
Storm/Petey-** or so
LAX/3D-**1/4 (The ending brings it down like a whole * or so, this was a great match until that BS)
Joe/Angle-***3/4-****
Sting/Cage/Abyss-***1/4 (Much better than the TP match)

I do have the show and might watch it soon to refresh myself, it's actually a pretty underrated show.

Thx Taroo, question, Was the Ironman the match in which Angle suffered a concussion at the very beginning? I left it out of the review because I wasn't 100% sure but I remember hearing about it later. I believe it was after that kick in the corner from Joe.

I'm not really sure about the concussion thing, for some reason I really don't even remember that at all.

Now I remember where I saw it.

Angle is simple incredible. The fact that he suffered that so early on but still put on a great match is just a testament to what kind of athlete he is.
