There are a few reasons why I think it's TNA's MOTY (tie with Angle/AJ)
First of all the build up was perfectly executed. I was really looking forward to the match. The video segments with both Joe and Angle training came over really good. Joe was willing to quit wrestling if he'd lose. And Joe who's hunting is always great. Angle was again a serious wrestler, no comedy bs. Just focus on the match.
The match itself was something never seen before. It felt like a big match, a great moment for Joe (many many hardcore TNA fans where waiting for this moment since a long time). But most of all, it felt so realistic. Every move told a story.
The beginning was something new, MMA-Style pro-wrestling. Some didn't like it, but I did. Maybe it's because you weren't into the feud or because you don't like MMA, but for me it was a great way to start the match. The psychology was there..
The final minutes were really great with believable nearfalls. It could have lasted some longer, that's my only complaint.
****1/2 for me.
