Turning Point and Final Resolution were both very good PPV's and because you can get both plus the mediocre against all odds for the price of one DVD the cross the line pack is a must own tbh.

I actually really liked Against All Odds 2010. It didn't have much in the way of great wrestling, but I liked the story throughout the night. The tournament was booked really well and I walked away from that show having a much higher opinion of Anderson & The Pope. So combine that show with very strong events in TP & FR, and I'd say you got probably the best DVD 3 Pack TNA has released.

Lockdown 2006 was the first TNA ppv I bought on DVD and one of my favorite TNA ppvs ever. The six-man tag, Daniels/Sensi, the Xscape match, 3D/Team Canada, Joe/Sabu were all great, and you had an amazing double main event in Christian/Abyss and LL.

BFG is very good, but not as great as the year after. Jarrett/Sting was a classic main event.

Agreed. As far as Bischoff/Hogan ppvs go, AAO is one of the best, right after No Surrender. The tournament was built up perfectly, there were a lot of good matches, and the main event felt really important.

And yeah, it's definitely the best of the TNA 3-packs. Vol. 2 would be the best, but the Final Resolution in between Turning Point and Genesis was pretty weak.

Sting Vs Cactus Jack - TNA Lockdown 2009

Ok, so I've almost finished reading Foley's new book, and since the entire thing is about the build up to THIS match, I figured I would sit down and watch it for the first time ever before I continued with the book to Foley's thoughts on the match.

Amazing how Foley can get me interested in a match between him and Sting in 2009. For starters, both men are way past their primes, and even in his prime I was never a fan of Sting. But reading about Foley's journey to this match, and the creative process for the build up, and some detailed thoughts on the promos he did leading up to it, I just HAD to see it.

Damn, not often I'm impressed by a video package in TNA, but fuck, they did an awesome job here.

Cactus starts the match off by... punching himself in the head and making himself bleed (doesn't Flair have the copyright on that? ). Sure, it seems stupid for Cactus to do this on the surface, but when you've seen the build up on Impact, or like me just read about them in Foley's book (which is equally as effective imo), you know that Cactus is just playing mind games with the Stinger. When Sting sees Cactus punching himself in the head, he doesn't know how to react, and Cactus takes full advantage by decking Sting with a forearm shot!

I do find it odd that Cactus tries to climb out of the cage only a few minutes into the match (which does lead to a great back suplex from the top rope btw, something I wouldn't have expected from either man in 2009), as Cactus told Sting the previous week that he wanted to tear him apart inside the steel cage. Hell, even after it bites Cactus in the arse the first time, once he regains control he goes for it AGAIN, only to get Stinger Splashed, causing him to fall back and get his leg caught in the ropes. Like the back suplex, it looked like a great spot, but came way too early in the match imo given the build up.

Fucking hell, even with Sting going after the now injured leg, Cactus STILL attempts to climb out while Sting is still in control! Not really understanding what Mick is doing right now lol.

Things seem to be picking up now though. Foley hits his double arm DDT and can't get the 3 count. He uses Sting's own Scorpion Death Lock and can't get Sting to give up. He can't climb out any more because of his leg injury. And he can't get through the door because he had it locked tight. So what does Cactus do? Attacks the camera man through the hole in the cage where the camera fits and reaches through to get his barbed wire bat! Before the match Cactus claimed he wouldn't use the bat, but desperate times indeed call for desperate measures, and he has no choice but to bring it into the match.

Sting is also desperate by this point, doing what he can to take down Cactus long enough to escape the cage and avoid the bat. Unfortunately, in a revenge spot of sorts, Cactus takes out Sting's knees with the bat while Sting is trying to climb out. Shame Sting doesn't bother selling in the slightest, and regains control of the match, and gains control of the barbed wire bat to use on the hardcore legend! The no sell of two shots to the knee was, well, bad, but at least Cactus gets hold of the bat again to bust Sting open and beat the living hell out of him.

Loving the ways Cactus is using the barbed wire bat lol. First he wraps a bit of the barbed wire around Mr Socko and instead of going for a Mandible Claw, he jabs it into the open wound on Sting's head lol. Then he places the bat in front of Sting's face in the corner and runs knee first into it!

From there, Cactus climbs out of the cage with Sting in hot pursuit, and manages to win the TNA World Title! Ummm, awesome for Mick, but the finish was underwhelming to say the least. Hell, the match in general is underwhelming. Selling gets thrown out of the window, storytelling seems to change a couple of times just to suit a certain spot, and the finish didn't seem like much of a finish either. Disappointing, even if I wasn't expecting THAT much from it, but Foley's book really got me excited to see what he had done given everything he went through to get there. All that is left for me to do now is finish the book and see what he thought of it.

Top Ten Matches in Turning Point History:

10) Gail Kim (c) Vs. Awesome Kong: TNA Knockout Championship (2007)

In what was an otherwise lackluster show, the Knockouts stole the show with one of the best women's matches I've ever seen on PPV. The chemistry between the athletic Gail Kim & the monstrous Awesome Kong was felt almost immediately and it generated a huge spark for the Knockouts Division. Amazingly, the two girls would top themselves a month later with another Match of the Night performance, but here, we got a very exciting match between the two most talented girls that TNA has ever had in their division.

9) Jeff Jarrett (c) Vs. Rhino: TNA World Heavyweight Championship (2005)

This one is somewhat underrated by TNA fans, but I thought Jarrett & Rhino had a very exciting main event match. It was a match that highlighted the differences between the two. Jarrett's old school wrestling style would give him the advantage in the ring, but once it became a brawling hardcore battle, that seemed to favor Rhino. The ending was particularly exciting as it seemed like there was an actual possibility of a title change. Of course thanks to the efforts of Team Canada, that didn't happen, but it was still a fun match to watch.

8) Beer Money Inc (c) Vs. The Motor City Machine Guns: TNA Tag Team Championship

In a preview of the excellence that was to come in 2010, Beer Money & The Machine Guns clashed for the tag team titles at the 2008 Turning Point. While nowhere near the classics these two teams would eventually have, it was still a very good show of the two best teams in TNA. At this point, the top spot of the division was clearly in the hands of Beer Money, who had quickly become one of the best teams in wrestling. The match between these two teams was a great display and I'm just happy that we would get to see much more of it down the road.

7)Petey Williams (c) Vs. Chris Sabin: X Division Championship (2004)

Back in the day, the excellence of the X Division was an every day occurrence and this match is an interesting one in the X Division's history. In the early years, the very best X Title bouts involved either AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, Jerry Lynn, or some mix of those four. Here, we got two fresher faces with a personal history (both were trained by the same guy) and they were allowed to deliver one of the finest X Title matches of all time. It was a very exciting bout where Sabin proved to be the only one who could counter the deadly Canadian Destroyer. Petey would retain the title that night, but this is easily a must see for fans of the X Division

Kurt Angle Vs. Desmond Wolfe (2009)

This great grudge match involved the well known Kurt Angle & TNA Newcomer Desmond Wolfe and they delivered one half of a fantastic double main event. Here, Angle & Wolfe put on a technical display better than most others could, while also keeping the intensity that the feud warranted. Wolfe seemed to have an answer for just about everything in Kurt Angle's move set. Wolfe made a very good first impression with TNA fans as he delivered one of the very best matches of 2009 with one of the top stars in the company. Of course Angle would get the win, and following this feud, Wolfe wouldn't quite get back on track again, but in this instance, he was given the chance to shine, and it was excellent.

Kurt Angle Vs. Abyss: Falls Count Anywhere Match (2008)

Some might say that I'm overrating this match, but I don't care. I was a huge fan of this one. It was an excellent hardcore match that was perfectly put together. What I really liked about it was the story they were able to put together. It reminded me of a slasher movie with Abyss as the Jason Voorhees/Michael Myers character and Angle as the victim trying to run away & take his shots when he's able too. It really made for an exciting hardcore match and one of my personal favorite matches of 2008. Abyss eventually went down after Angle knocked him off a scaffolding through the Spanish Announce Table to secure the victory.

4) AJ Styles (c) Vs. Samoa Joe Vs. Christopher Daniels: TNA World Heavyweight Championship (2009)

The second half of the aforementioned Double Main Event of Turning Point 2009. This was a rematch of the classic Unbreakable 2005 match for the X Division Title. Here, all three men were once again given the main event spot and they once again delivered big time. Having these three work a World Title match made it feel like I was watching an X Division match close the show. It was a very exciting contest between three great talents. Unlike the X Title match, Joe & Daniels were quite as credible as they were in 2005, but that didn't stop the match from being as exciting as it was. It was a fantastic showing from all three men as AJ Styles picked up the victory.


3) Kurt Angle Vs. Samoa Joe II (2006)

The rivalry between Samoa Joe & Kurt Angle was something that generated an instant spark in TNA and really got the fans excited. At Genesis 2006, Kurt Angle ended the undefeated streak of Samoa Joe, but the demand for a rematch was made by the TNA fans, and it was given to them at Turning Point. The end result was an even better match than their first encounter as Joe finally defeated Kurt Angle, evening the series at 1-1. Now I had my misgivings about doing the match between these two too soon (I would have saved it for BFG07), but the matches between these two were usually very exciting, and personally, this is my favorite match that they had together. It was great fun, and being more of a Joe fan, I was happy to see him win here.

2) AJ Styles (c) Vs. Samoa Joe: X Division Championship (2005)

Now the Unbreakable 2005 Triple Threat is usually hailed as the greatest X Division Title mtch ever, but I disagree. THIS is my favorite. AJ Vs. Joe at this show was nothing short of phenomenal. What really made this match work was how it was a perfect David Vs. Goliath match with all the high flying excitement that is expected from the X Division. AJ took probably the worst beating of his career, and it only made things more exciting as the match played out. I have never seen a match in the X Division that has quite captured the level of brutality & excitement as this one. This was an absolutely fantastic outing that deserves all the praise in the world, moreso than it usually gets to be honest.

1) America's Most Wanted Vs. Triple X: Losing Team Disbands Six Sides of Steel Match (2004)

This isn't only the best match in Turning Point history, but its my favorite match in TNA history. It was a match that offered a little bit of everything: Hardcore violence, tag team excellence, old school storytelling, & high flying daredevil acts the likes of which are hard to match. Elix Skipper's infamous walk across the top of the cage is one of the most amazing things I have ever seen in wrestling, and that really put the match over the top. However, there was so much more to it than that. This was the culmination of a year & a half long rivalry between the two greatest teams TNA had to offer at the time. Chris Harris, James Storm, Christopher Daniels, & Elix Skipper usually worked extremely well together, but the end result here was untouchable. This is one of the best tag team matches I've ever seen. Its one of the best Steel Cage Matches I've ever seen, and it was nothing short a classic. Hell, I'd say its a contender for Best Match in the Last Decade. Its certainly up there.

Turning Point 2010

Robbie/Lethal - **3/4 - Decent opener

Mickie/Tara - **1/2 - Best KO match on ppv this year

3D/Guns - ***3/4 - MOTN by far

RVD/Dreamer - DUD - Pathetic chain wrestling, sloppy weapon spots and an overall bad match got worse when Dreamer hurt himself.

EV2/Fortune - **1/2 - The EV2 guys just looked sluggish and no one knew what the stips were

Pope/Abyss - ** - Boring match and illogical booking killed this

Joe/Jarrett - ** - See the last match, add in Gunner & Murphy

Hardy/Morgan - **1/4 - Another dull ppv main event with the fans confused who to cheer for because Hardy can't get booed and Morgan has no fans.
