Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
Lockdown 2008 (a ppv I went to)
Black Machismo © vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Johnny Devine vs. Sharky Boy vs. Curry Man vs. Consequences Creed ** 1/2 good x divison match like always do yet lack time. It started out with Lethal and Dutt doing some nice good formula tag moves to get the crowd popin but the eliminations came to quick and also the ending was lame. Three faces cheating to beat a heel is just bad booking.
Queen of the Cage: Roxxi Laveaux vs. Rhaka Khan vs. Angelina Love vs. Velvet Sky vs. Traci Brooks vs. Jacqueline vs. Salinas vs. Christy Hemme * A lets get everyone on the ppv failure. They could of just had Roxxi vs Sky since they were feuding yet they did this match. Once they got in the ring it was just a basic forgettable knockout impact match with nothing to fancy shown. I was happy Roxxi went over in this match.
BG James vs. Kip James 1/2* to think with all the hype I was looking forward to this match. Instead you know the old saying don't believe the hype. This match was really bad it felt like 20 minutes long being only 6 and the hole match was kip's boring offense being a one sided zzzz fest.
Cuffed-in-the-Cage Match: The Rock 'n' Rave Infection vs. Eric Young & Kaz vs. Black Reign & RelliK vs. The Motor City Machine Guns vs. LAX vs. Scott Steiner & Petey Williams ** 1/4 worked something out of nothing.This was the lamest gimmick match you could possibly think of. Such the def. of cluster fuck shown in this match but they worked with it and worked hard and gave us something decent.
Awesome Kong & Raisha Saed vs. Gail Kim & ODB ** 3/4 match of the night so far this was a real good ladies match with all of them working hard. Gail Kim hit a sick hurrcanranna in this match and Saed looked good as always just good work shown in here.Putting the faces over and maintaining Kong's dominate regin good booking Scotty D.
Booker T & Sharmell vs. Robert Roode & Payton Banks ** this had to be one of the most lackluster feuds I have seen. It felt like they were just going threw the motions in this match. Much lack of heat in this match.This match was pretty pointless because couple months later Roode and Booker are friends.
Lethal Lockdown: Christian, Sting, Kevin Nash, Matt Morgan & Rhino vs. Tomko, AJ Styles, James Storm & Team 3D (w/Jacqueline). *** 1/2, fun match I know people have bitched about this match saying it was not that good. Well I found it to be well done. There was a little bit of setting up spots and a finish out of no where yet i enjoyed this match. There was good wrestling good use of the weapons good spots it was done well.
TNA World Heavyweight Title: Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe *** 1/2 I did enjoy this match yet I dont think the mma stuff was a sucessfull encounter. I think it worked better with like umm Angle vs Undertaker. This was pretty boring in the beginning with long rest holds fake mma shit and Joe trying to get a move off the ropes yet angle countering. When Angle was done getting heat on Joe it picked up and it got better with Joe getting offense and the predictable win.
Overall 6/10 ppv it was the good bad and ugly of tna.
