DVD Review : TNA’s Ultimate Matches
Reviewed by : Steven Wilson of MainEventRadio.com
When you hear of a DVD entitled Ultimate Matches one could jump the conclusion that it is sure to offer some of the best matches the company has had to date, in many ways that is true with TNA’s latest dvd release, but the best way to describe this DVD is TNA’s Ultimate “Gimmick” Matches as the entire lineup is comprised of the innovative and over the top matchups that TNA’s creative team has come up with over the years.
Complimented with short interview clips explaining and hyping each match, the 2 Disc, 6 and a half hour feature serves up a look at some of the unique type of matches TNA offers to its fans, some confusing at first look, but usually highly entertaining.
Matches include : King Of The Mountain 3,4, & 5 from Slammiversary 06-08, 5 Ultimate X matchups (Final Resolution 05, Destination X 05, No Surrender 06, Victory Road 07, and Bound For Glory 07), 3 Six Sides of Steel matches including the infamous Turning Point 04 match where Elix Skipper nearly killed himself walking along the top of the cage and pulling off the hurricarana, Also AJ Styles vs Abyss from Lockdown 05, And Abyss vs Christian Cage from Lockdown 06, Then TNA’s version of Tables Ladders and Chairs, adding in Chains for Full Metal Mayhem featuring Jeff Hardy vs Abyss from Against All Odds 05 as well as Abyss vs Christian Cage from Sacrifice 06, Then we have 2 Monster’s Ball matchups from Bound For Glory 05, and 06, all capped off with the excellent ladder match between Christian Cage and Kaz from Genesis 07.
Id recommend this DVD mainly to those new to TNA or those who are thinking of getting into the company. Within this one dvd you get to know all the major players, and the special matches these feuds build up to. For the hardcore TNA fan if you don’t already have most of these matchups on DVD whether it be the PPV dvd’s or the other best of releases then ultimate matches is worth the add to you collection as the amount of footage for the price is worthy.
TNA’s Ultimate Matches will be available on DVD across the continent on October 21st, Check out ShopTNA.com or TNAWrestling.com for more details, and to read my previous DVD reviews check out www.maineventradio.com/reviews.htm
