Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
Ok I just finished watching most of Destination so here is my review for what I saw.
Destination X 2009
1.Matt Morgan vs Abyss(10,000 thumbtacks match)
This kinds of matches always suck. THe last one with Abyss and Spike Dudley and this one have proven that. I personally liked their last match way more than this one. Bassically the match starts and they both hit their basic stuff and spend alot of time just trying to get the thumbtacks down. The spot at the end where Morgan hits abyss with that big boot of the stage and Abyss goes flying through a table filled with thousands of thumbtacks.
Overall a decent match. I just know these two guys can put on way better matches and I really hope they deliever at Lockdown.
my match rating:*3/4
2.Awesome Kong vs Bolt
This was just a squash match and it was one of the worst Knockout title matches I have ever seen. I mean this match actually made me apreciate Kong vs Christy Hemme match from final resolution. This was just a squash match with a nice finish.
The end comes when Kong stops a hurricanrana and turns it into an awesome bomb.
my match rating:1/2*
3.Samoa Joe vs Scott Steiner
Holy shit Samoa Joe looked fatter than ever, and I hated everything about him in this match. His new haircut, his new pants that really need to go. this was a 2 minute squash match. I think everyone expected that so nobody will reall mind it. It was just used to continue the story.
Anyways Samoa Joe dq's himself and continues to beat on Steiner, later in the night I missed this part but I gues that he killed him or some shit like that.
my match rating:1/4*
4.AJ Styles vs Booker T
This was the first great match of the night and Booker proved alot of people wrong including me with his performance in this match. It looked like he was reall motivated to have a great match with AJ.
Ok so onto the match. It was fucking awesome. There were alot of nice moves pulled of in this match and it was really fast paced. Booker always has amazing chemistry with AJ. check out their BFG match to see what im talking about.
Booker should be prud of himself in this match. He wasnt really carried by AJ alot so good job Booker.
my match rating:***
5.Team 3D vs Beer Money
This was another good match that really helped this ppv out after that ODB shit which made me hate TNA for a second there. There was alot of fast paced action and alot of near falls where it really looked like both teams could lose. What I also loved was that there were alot of tag team moves.
The only thing that I hated about this match was the 2 stupid endings. Beer money gets DQed and the match gets restarted as a hardcore match. Well here I thought the match was gona turn into a classic. Well I was wrong. The match ends a second later when Beer Money just walks out. anyways this was a very good match up until the ending point.
my match rating:***
6.Ultimate X match
This was a fucking classic match up. I honestly loved it. this was the best ultimate match since No Surrended 06. Yes I liked this match more than BFG 07 ultimate x match. Every man in this match deserves huge credit and I loved how the crowd was into Suicide.
The match started of and there was a million AMAZING moves done in this match. I could not believe some of the crazy shit that they did in this match, and some of the stuff of the ultimate x ropes that were amazing like the sick powerbomb and the amazing jump to the center.
words can not describe this match and it kind of reminded me of the Victory Road 2008 x division match up. A pure classic match that everyone should seriously watch.
my match rating:****
7.Sting vs Kurt Angle
I loved this match. It was not nearly as good as their Bound For Glory 07 match but it was still amazing. Here is one thing that I loved. The match had alot of close nearfalls especially when Folley accidentally hit Sting with a steel chair. Everyone said Folley was gona turn heel here and he didnt, so I dont get why people are saying at Lockdown it will be Foley vs Sting.
anyways this match was awesome with alot of near falls and a really big match feel to it. The build up was amazing to this match and it continued the story of Angle and Jarrett really nicelly. Sting is one of my favorite wrestlers so I loed that he retained. This also ment that we wouldnt see Angle/Jarrett for the belt at Lockdown.
At the end Sting wins with a second Scorpion Death Drop to win this amazing match. I loved that main event mafia didnt interfere into the match at all because of a promo they did earlier in the night. another classic match up.
my match rating:***1/2
Overall another great ppv. THe second half of this ppv really saved it from being a total flop. I know I missed 2 matches but from what I saw it was actually a good ppv. I might buy this ppv on DVD when it comes out just because of the last 4 matches.
