They seemed to have gotten progressively better throughout the year, although most of the filler PPVs have been pretty crappy.
Honestly Turning Point is so overrated. Its almost on the same level as Genessis in my opinion. Turning Point had 2 awesome main events and the other stuff was pretty awerage. Same thing goes for Genessis. Also Lockdown was pretty bad in my opinon.

No fucking way, At TP , the weakest match were 6 KO tag match and Steiner/Lashley, both around ** stars match

At Genesis, Sting/Rhino sucked, the KO match also sucked because it was a throw away match in order to replace Christy/Kong, and the main event sucked because of Foley and Kip James being in the main event what a joke, and Sewell/Bashir was blah

Thats why I said almost at the same level. The point is that both of those ppv's had two classic matches on them and the rest wasnt nothing really special. I am not dissing Turning Point because I really liked it. Its just that people are calling this one of the best TNA ppv's ever and thats just overrating it.

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)

Agreed, although i do think VR was the turning point (no pun) and every PPV since then has got progreesively better, with a good/great BFG (obviously just IMO) followed by a great TP makes a quality back to back performance and gives reason to be optomistic going forward and imo would justify paying for the next one...(trying to avoid spoilers personally) but i heard FR should have another couple of cracking ME's and follows 2 consistently good PPV's, if there ever was a time for TNA fans to dig deep and order then this is it.

Just out of interest does anyone remember 2 PPV's back to back as solid as BFG/TP?

No Surrender 09 was probably one of the best TNA ppv's of the year. Suicide/The Pope was a very fun street fight which I gave ***. Samoa Joe vs Daniels was a really fun match with some high flying action, nice leg work from Joe and finally some awesome reversals towards the end. I have that match at ***1/2. AJ/Sting/Angle/Morgan was up until this point the best TNA ppv main event we had. There was some really nice action and near falls, plus AJ became the TNA world heavyweight champion here, ***1/2. Also if you're a fan of Lashley then this is where he makes his debut so thats a plus(if you're one of his fans). We also got rid of the Deaner crap here and the Lethal Lockdown match was also pretty fun. I think I had it somewhere around ***. This is the ppv that started this awesome streak of ppv's in my opinion. Next we got an awesome Bound For Glory and Turning Point. Also reading the spoilers I am 100 percent sure Final Resolution will be a great ppv aswell.

----------------------

AJ Styles vs Sting (Bound For Glory 2009)



I decided to review this match since it has been getting alot of mixed reviews. It took me about 3 watches but holy shit I realized this is probably one of the funnest TNA main event we have had this whole year.

Ok so first the whole build up to the match was about both men respecting each other and passing of the torch. There was no bullshit in this match. Up to this point every Bound For Glory main event had some sort of interference. This was just a straight up wrestling match between 2 of TNA's best.

They knew each other really well so the whole match they just counter everything they throw at each other. Here we see some really nice reversals and they pull out some really nice moves. The crowd is going crazy during this whoel match. They are actually chanting "This is Wrestling". Sting proves here that he has still got it.

The match is 13 minutes long but they put enough action in this 13 minute match to fit into a 20 minute match. I loved how when one of them was getting counted out the other wrestler would stop the count and allow his opponent to get back in the ring. Perfect play on the storyline they were involved in.

There were almost no botches here and it was just a very fun all around match. At the end AJ Styles hits a springboard splash and gets the 3 count. The crowd goes crazy and the torch has been passed to AJ Styles. AJ has ended Stings streak at Bound For Glory and might have ended his career aswell.

Now I know some people did not like the way AJ had won. I know people would it if he ended the match with Styles Clash or the 450 splash. I agree a 450 splash would look amazing but I didnt think the splash was bad at all since it is one of his finishers. If a 150 pound Rey Mysterio can do the splash after the 619 as a finisher then I dont see a problem with a 210 pound AJ doing it aswell.

Overall a great match and it is actually my favorite Bound For Glory main event that we have had. Second best ppv main event this year right behind the Turning Point match. It had a litle bit of everything.
my match rating: ***

Is there any information on the Turning Point DVD release date? It isn't listed on Navarre's website (even though Genesis 2010 is).
