Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread
My honest thoughts on every TNA PPV this year:
Genesis = Very good show with a high energy throughout, and two very strong matches in the X Title match & Jarrett/Angle II
Against All Odds = It sucked. Just take a look at that main event and I dare you to tell me it was good.
Destination X = The most two faced PPV ever. The first half of the show was a damn trainwreck, but the second half was actually very good with AJ/Booker, Team 3D/Beer Money, Ultimate X, & Sting/Angle all saving the show really.
Lockdown = Could have been better, and Sting/Foley was a letdown, but overall it was pretty good. I especially liked Lethal Lockdown, Team 3D/Beer Money, and the undercard was pretty solid.
Sacrifice = A fun PPV. Not much else to say besides that. The best part of it was Beer Money vs. The Invasion, and everything else was pretty solid.
Slammiversary = Awesome PPV. TNA's best up to this point. I'm still not a fan of having two King of the Mountains on there, but they handled it well. I also have to give shoutouts to Sting/Morgan & The Monster's Ball which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Victory Road = I still give Worst TNA PPV of the year to Against All Odds believe it or not. But this show was a huge downer with The Mafia winning all the belts & nothing to really write home about.
Hard Justice = OK show. Nothing much to talk about really. I thought the Foley/Nash match was pretty sick & Steel Asylum was fun.
No Surrender = Another fun show. The main reason that it was worth it was because of AJ's title victory.
Bound for Glory = TNA's best this year IMO. It just had a great energy from top to bottom and for the most part, the right guys all went over, and we got great payoffs to their feuds. My favorite matches were Angle/Morgan, Full Metal Mayhem, Ultimate X, and I thought AJ/Sting, while not the greatest main event ever, was a very classy way to end the show & left people feeling good.
Turning Point = Many are saying it was the best PPV from TNA this year, but I disagree. I think after watching BFG with that hot & fresh LA crowd, it was really hard for me to go right back to the Impact Zone that I've been looking at for over 5 years. Also, BFG had the benefit of featuring matches that concluded long built up feuds, and TP was just the first step in the new direction. That said, the PPV was action packed, and featured a very strong double main event in Wolfe/Angle & AJ/Joe/Daniels for the World Title. Not the best PPV, but definitely in the Top 3 (with BFG & Slammy)
