Samoa Joe vs Christian Cage:

Destination X ****1/4

No Surrender ****

Bound For Glory ****1/2

Magnificent trilogy! Much better than Angle/Joe series, and right there with Angle/AJ series, IMO. Brutal, hard hitting, full impact wrestling with great chemistry! Christian's finest hour here, along with 2 Angle matches.

I liked the Beer Money/Team 3D feud, but I don't know about a Beer Money DVD that's primarily matches from that feud as those matches weren't as good as say the ones in the BM/LAX feud, and some one-off matches. Then again, those were far better than the matches in BM's feuds with Matt Morgan & Abyss, and the MEM. At least there aren't more of those on there. BM/Lethal Consequences wasn't anything special, nor was that Lethal Lockdown, nor the DX match w/ 3D that had two terrible finishes. I remember the three-way w/ LC & Morgan/Abyss being less than average too. I didn't think about it until now, but as great as Beer Money are, their PPV matches often aren't as good as they could be as BM are usually put in there with opponents they have to carry (and usually barely drag something good out of) be it Matt Morgan & Abyss, Matt Morgan & Hernandez, Lethal Consequences, British Invasion, Booker T & Scott Steiner, the Band, etc. instead of having simple matches with teams like LAX, 3D, & MCMG who are capable of delivering a strong match themselves and with whom BM have good chemistry. They've been wasted on a lot of PPVs the last year and a half. Speaking of being wasted...

The MCMG disc is very disappointing. A majority of the matches are multi-man gimmick matches where they're non-factors. Cuffed in the Cage? Weren't they, along with Steiner, who was main eventing the next show, and LAX, eliminated in the opening minutes so they could try to get Super Eric and the Black Reign, Rellik, Lance Hoyt & Jimmy Rave stable over? Weren't MCMG layed out for most of the 3D/Devine six-man? Then again, I guess in some ways that was the most important match in MCMG's TNA career. Wasn't Sabin/Magnus pretty much a squash at a time when Magnus was super green and got zero reaction (and hasn't been seen in months which makes Sabin look worse now)? If not for the Sabin/Shelley match and the World X Cup elimination tag (and maybe the NO LIMIT/LAX match), I think many people watching that DVD would come away wondering what's special about those two or why TNA gave them a DVD. Those two matches, however, would probably make many people watching the DVD wonder why those two are constantly put in random 10-man cage matches, squash matches against guys like Brutus Magnus, etc. (if they even make the PPV) instead of regularly put in positions where they can shine and deliver great matches.

It's sad that given how talented they are and how many great matches they've had in other companies, that these are the "best" PPV matches they've had in TNA. Couldn't they have put some of their NJPW matches against Apollo 55, better TNA matches, or just matches that spotlight them on there? I'm fairly certain they would be able to do the first one since I believe they have matches from a Sumo Hall show from last year on their Video Vault deal.

Regardless, there are some great matches on both discs. Hopefully the interviews on the DVD are good too.

I still have to say that Beer Money's best PPV encounter was ironically against The Guns which still confuses me on why they didn't put that match on a DVD dedicated to both teams.

The Genesis 07 tag should be on there over the 6-man simply because the guns went over. Then again I feel that my entire match listing is better than theirs. Oh well.

I actually watched that Shelley/Eric Young match for the first time in a while today. I forgot how solid it was, considering it was on a pretty awful PPV. I miss being able to watch Shelley in singles competition. He doesn't get to show off his technical prowess as much while teaming with Sabin.

I think the problem is that they wanted to restrict this DVD to PPV matches that weren't on the last tag team DVD which removes a lot of quality matches for both teams. I don't think many would mind if they threw some solid TV matches on there instead of some of the weaker PPV matches. Regardless, even working within those limitations, there were better matches they could have put on the MCMG disc such as the BM/MCMG match you mentioned (which was better than most of the matches on the BM disc too if they wanted to put it there since BM won), the Ultimate X from last year's Destination X (they were featured more in that one than in the BFG UX, the handcuff match, and the steel asylum matches), and that six-man from last year's Sacrifice (it's not like they made sure to mainly pick matches they won). I remember that Shelley/Young match being better than I expected (the best match on the PPV, which isn't saying much). I have no problem with that match being on there. Sabin/Magnus, and Cuffed in the Cage on the other hand...

The moonsault which might look quite cool in the moment kurt didn't really sell as if he has been in a brutal, cage match and then dived from the top of the cage.

If you think thats not selling than check out AJ/Pope from Lockdown. AJ does a dive of the steel cage and misses. The only problem is that he was up in less than a second.

Kotm 2006

Sting vs Cage vs Abyss vs Jarrett vs Truth-***1/4

A good match in parts but probably my least favorite KOTM match yet. Not just cause of the screwjob finish but also due to a poor pace at times and the stalling by Sting and Cage at the end was pretty bad too. There's a period of a few minutes in the middle though where it breaks down into all out mayhem which was really entertaining, great stuff. But its a flawed match in too many ways to be any higher
