Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Sacrifice 2010 was a real mixed bag this year but it was good for the most part. MCMG, Beer Money and Team 3-D had a really nice opener, Doug Williams and Kaz had the match of the night. The rest of the undercard was pretty bad apart from Hardy/Anderson which I remember being really into. Jarrett/Sting was good for storyline development but could've been saved for TV instead. As for the main event, it wasn't quite the dream encounter everybody had in mind but it was good nonetheless. The Lethal/Flair stuff wasn't necessary and took away the focus from the competitors. Highlight of the show would be Anderson's promo, that shit was great.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

From what I remember (and will see again since I bought it on DVD), the show was very middle-of-the-road.

The opener was great, surprisingly so. I know any time you have MCMG and BM, you're going to get gold, but since the match was made on the iMPACT! before the ppv, and it was pretty much the same match as three days earlier (which was a 4-way #1 contender's match with Ink, Inc.), no one expected it to be so much fun.

Terry/Jordan, at the very least, was better than expected. It could have been garbage, but it was just weak, and that'll have to do.

Kazarian/Williams was MOTN, and one of my favorite matches of the year.

Rayne/Tara was a typical women's match.

Band/Ink, Inc. was a decent tag team match. Of all the tag teams who could have challenged band - BM, MCMG, and Team 3D, Moore and Neal were the least deserving, and looked like a couple of old-fashioned vanilla midgets out there. I would have preferred Moore and Neal in the three-way tag with BM and MCMG, and 3D challenging for the titles in a street fight.

Abyss/Wolfe was okay. As everyone else has said, Wolfe should not be wrestling Abyss, any more than Finlay should be wrestling The Great Khali. Keep the "sports entertainers" to themselves, and the "wrestlers" to themselves. Abyss should be mixing it up with Anderson, Hardy, Sting, Jarrett, Styles, and so on, while Wolfe should be in there with Styles, Joe, Daniels, Williams, Kazarian, Angle, etc. Total mismatch, and not in a good way.

Hardy/Anderson was good.

Sting/Jarrett was more of a segment than a match, which only works if it's a match NO ONE wants to see, but considering that this was Sting's first singles ppv match since October, it was not fair. Granted, we saw Sting and Jarrett go at it all year in 2006, and a lot of people didn't want to see this again. But the stakes were different. This was about Sting as a heel, Jarrett pretty much as a face goon for Hogan, and the beatdown. If they were going to make it just a beatdown, why not just make it a "street fight," so by the time we see the action, it's an actual match. Because the action itself lasted about 6-7 minutes. I think people would rather feel like they saw a 6-7 minute match than a pre-match beatdown for a 14-second "match." These two were in a nodq tag team match on iMPACT! weeks earlier, and were clearly capable of putting on a fun, generic show, they should have done it again.

RVD/Styles was okay, but just too long and tedious to be really entertaining. The posturing at the beginning was unbearable, interference by Lethal and Flair unneccessary, and the match was never all that great. The irony is that these two had a better match that last 7 minutes on impact than this 25-minute near-snoozefest. To up the stakes, this should have just been 15 minutes or so of wall-to-wall action, and left it at that.

Favorite Matches of All Time

1. Triple-Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship: Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit - WrestleMania XX

2. Career Threatening Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair - WrestleMania XXIV

3. WWE Championship: John Cena vs. CM Punk - Money in the Bank 2011

4. No Holds Barred Match: The Undertaker vs. Triple H - WrestleMania XXVII

5. WWF Championship: Hulk Hogan vs. The Ultimate Warrior - WrestleMania VI

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I stopped watching after the first three matches. Maybe I will go back to it, but I was not very interested in continuing to tolerate it.

MCMG vs. Beer Money Inc. vs. Team 3D - ****
Rob Terry vs. Orlando Jordan - *1/2
Kazarian vs. Doug Williams - ***

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I just watched Turning Point 2008. There were many good matches, but they were short of great. I hated Joe vs. Nash and it made very little sense to me. Abyss and Angle had some nice spots, but it seemed like that was all it was.

X Division Match- ***1/2
Awesome Kong and Saeed vs. Wilde and Roxxi - *1/2
Shiekh Bashir vs. Rhino - **
MCMG vs. Beer Money Inc. - ***3/4
Christian Cage vs. Booker T - ***1/2
Angle vs. Abyss - ***1/4
Samoa Joe vs. Kevin Nash - *
AJ Styles vs. Sting - ***

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Originally, I hated Joe/Nash as well. The fact that it took Nash literally everything in his arsenal + cheating to beat Joe made it ok with me in the long run at least. I really liked the majority of the opeer, Guns/Beer Money, and Angle/Abyss though. I preferred Sting/AJ from that show to their BFG match the following year.

Guns/BMI was dull, by far their worst match, I gave it ***1/4.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Guns/Beer Money from Turning Point 08 was far from dull.
