Against All Odds 2009 was one of the worst ppv ever released. Every match sucks ... it looks like poor 3 hour Impact.

But, Turning Point and Final Resolution 2009 was excellent choice.

Ouch, wasn't aware of AAO being a shit show. Oh well, still think it's a good deal on the 3 events. Gonna pop in BFG 08 first before I start on the other 3.

Also, Bound For Glory 08 came in today aswell, so I have 4 shows now that I haven't seen before, should be some great shows, the cards are pretty stacked for all 4 events.
Is it not AAO 2010 that comes with the show? 2010 was much much better than 2009. it's not the best match quality wise but it tells a nice story with Pope winning the tourney, and Styles/Joe ain't too bad either.

If infact you did get AAO 2009, Poor you. I didn't mind Shelley/Young but anytime you have Team 3D in singles competition in the MAIN EVENT, you know there's something wrong.

My quick thoughts on all three PPVs on the new 3 Pack:

Turning Point 2009 = A very strong double main event really put this show over the top and made it one of the better TNA PPVs of the year (I don't think its unarguably the best though since I really liked Slammy 09 & BFG 09 as well). AJ vs. Joe vs. Daniels for the World Title & Wolfe vs. Angle were both outstanding matches and I would say they are definitely must sees for TNA fans. The rest of the card was mostly solid with all the divisions being highlighted in a good way. The two standouts on the undercard were Cide vs. Red for the X Title & Tara vs. Kong in Six Sides of Steel. Everything else was ok with a Beer Money/Guns/BI match for the tag gold, Steiner vs. Lashley, & Morgan/Mex/Pope vs. 3D & Rhino.

Final Resolution 2009 = This one kind of got forgotten following Turning Point, and was compared unfavorably. To be honest, the double main event isn't as strong as TPs, but still very good with both an awesome Angle vs. Wolfe 2 out of 3 Falls Cage match & a very good main event with Daniels & AJ for the gold. Both matches were great, but like I said, they tend to get overlooked for not being as good as the matches from the month before. Where they did improve upon TP was having a more solid undercard (minus Feast or Fired, which I hate). We had a really good tag title match between The Guns & The British Invasion, a fun 8 man tag team elimination involving Morgan, Hernandez, Pope, & Suicide against 3D, Rhino, & Neal. And in what I thought was a bit of a surprise hit, we had Foley & Abyss take on Raven & Stevie in what was definitely one of Foley's better performances in TNA. Oh and Steiner vs. Lashley II was actually really good as well & it was a nice farewell performance from Scotty.

Against All Odds 2010 = Alot of people beat up on this show, but I really enjoyed it. In terms of "star ratings" its not going to set the world on fire, but the story told throughout the night was great, and usually booking a tournament the right way will result in that. By the time this night was done & the tournament had reached the finals, but The Pope & Mr. Anderson came off looking like legit main event superstars. I had my doubts about both guys, and here they are after this night looking like two of the top guys in the company. Not the strongest show in terms of great wrestling (best match was AJ/Joe for the gold) but in terms of booking, it was really well handled.

When comparing this 3 pack to the other 3 packs TNA has done, I'd say this one is arguably the best:
- The 1st one they did was Victory Road 2004/Turning Point 2004/Lockdown 2005 and that set was a good "introductory" set for people who want to check out TNA's earlier stuff. TP04 is a personal favorite TNA PPV of mine. Lockdown 05 was pretty good, not fantastic, & VR was special for being TNA's first 3 Hour PPV and having a couple bright spots. Its good to pick up for anybody who wants to see what TNA's earlier PPVs were like, but the shows are not without some flaws.
- The 2nd one has two great PPVs in Victory Road 2008 & Hard Justice 2008. Both of those shows were among TNA's best in 2008 without question. No Surrender 2008 wasn't quite as good. It wasn't a bad show, but doesn't quite measure up to the other two.
- The 3rd set included a great Turning Point 2008 & a very enjoyable Genesis 2009 PPV both of which had some of TNA's best matches from that time period. However, the monkey in the middle was Final Resolution 2008 (part 2?) which felt more like a 3 Hour Impact than a real PPV.

So I'd say this set is one where all three shows delivered in big ways. TP & FR more for its fantastic wrestling, and AAO for its great booking.

No you get aao2010 in the 3 pack. You at least get a very good aj/Joe match out of it. Booking of the show is great but the matches are not
amazing. Aao09 as mentioned previously

don't forget the first triple threat box with hj05 slammiversary 05 and no surrender 05

Correct on AAO 10' on the 3 pack. Nice to see that the shows are all good. I just got finished with BFG 08, and I thought it was a great show. They come off so much better in a larger venue, and it really makes the event seem alot more "special". Angle/Jarrett was good, Joe/Sting was good, Full Metal Mayhem was pretty decent, I enjoyed it, KO 3 way was enjoyable, Styles/Booker/Christian was good, Creed/Bashir was surprisingly good, Steel Asylum wasn't too bad, and the Bimbo brawl was what it was, it was kept short, so it wasn't too bad. Very strong show. Will be starting the 3 pack in the next day or so. Looking forward to Angle/Wolfe.

I agree with Jaysin that TNA come off so much better in bigger venues. Was watching some bits and bobs off AAO 07 the other day. The show's a bit of a mixed bag but there are some bright sparks.

Team 3D vs. LAX (Little Italy Street Fight) ***1/2
Senshi vs. Austin Starr ***
A.J Styles vs. Rhino (Motor City Chain Match) ***
Chris Sabin vs. Jerry Lynn ***
Christian vs. Kurt Angle ****1/4

Turning Point 09 was a good show. Angle/Wolfe was great, the triple threat was great, and Tara/Kong was great aswell. All the other matches were solid. Really enjoyable show in my opinion.

AJ Styles vs Rhino series:

Turning Point ***3/4

Last Man Standing ****

Motor City Chain ***1/2

Elevation X **3/4

Underrated and overlooked feud! It had some great matches, and AJ was amazing as heel back then. What I noticed, is that especially the storytelling and psychology is almost prefect in these matches. AJ was great chicken heel, and Rhino was a badass face who tried to destroy AJ, and they transferred it perfectly in their matches.

AJ's facial expressions and Rhino's mannerisms made this feud memorable. I remember it being pretty good, but it seems even better now!

Picked up the Cross the Line 3 Pack. $15 would be a good deal for the 2 Angle/Wolfe and the 3 AJ Title Defenses. Also got Cross the Line Volume 1 for $10 used at FYE. Those shows look fairly underwhelming actually.
