Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Just rewatched AJ Styles Vs Samoa Joe from Turning Point 2005 and I've got to say I think its my favourite match in the history of TNA. The storytelling was great - kind of Rocky III esque. I think one of the main reasons why it worked so well was the fact that AJ Styles doesn't usually wrestle that style and so it showed both the hatred he had for Joe as well as the need to adopt a new strategy for such a dominant force. Anyone else agree with me on it being the best in TNA history?

Its my favorite X Division Match of all time. Great Great match with a David Vs. Goliath story and lots of high flying, hard hitting action. Truly awesome.

Favorite match in TNA history? Not quite. That goes to AMW Vs. XXX at Turning Point 04.

Final Resolution 2009

TNA World Tag Team Title Match
The British Invasion(c) vs. The Motor City Machine Guns - **3/4
This was one of your usual Machine Gun matches from when they never won anything. They hit you with 68 double teams and great looking moves, then the other team hits one and wins. Didn't help the Brits look like they deserved to be champs at all.

Knockouts Championship
ODB(c) vs. Tara - *

Feast Or Fired
Samoa Joe vs. James Storm vs. Robert Roode vs. Jay Lethal vs. Consequences Creed vs. Eric Young vs. Kevin Nash vs. Rob Terry vs. Sheik Abdul Bashir vs. Kiyoshi vs. Cody Deaner vs. Homicide - *1/4

8-Man(not really) Elimination Match
Team 3D, Rhino, & Jesse Neal vs. Matt Morgan, Hernandez, The Pope, & Suicide - *1/2
The rules and the way the match was booked was fucking stupid.

Last Man Standing Match
Scott Steiner vs. Bobby Lashley - 1/2*

Foley's Funhouse Rules Match
Mick Foley & Abyss vs. Raven & Dr. Stevie - **

Three Degrees of Pain
Kurt Angle vs. Desmond Wolfe ***3/4 - ****
It felt really slow to me and yes, there was a lot of great wrestling, but it never really peaked and felt kinda flat at times. I personally enjoyed their Turning Point match more but this isn't bad in any way.

TNA World Heavyweight Championship
AJ Styles(c) vs. Daniels - ****

Overall: 7/10
The last two matches certainly save it from being an extremely mediocre, or dare i say pretty awful show.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I've been trying to watch more stuff from TNA recently. Caught the last 3 PPV's but wasn't really that blown away. I was hoping if regular TNA watchers could tell me what the top 5 DVD's of the company were. Including all the PPV's and best of... DVD's. Would really appreciate the help.

People say Best of Joe is awesome, but I just don't like "best of" dvds.

Thanks mate! Put all on my netflix queue. Been impressed with the matches i've seen from '05-'07. Seems that was a good period for TNA in regards to match quality.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I got the TNA 3 Pack with Turning Point 09, Final Resolution 09, & Against All Odds 10. I liked all 3 shows, so I wanted the 3 pack. I'll give brief summaries on my feelings towards them now.

TP09 = Hailed as the best TNA PPV of 2009, I can't say I fully agree. I really enjoyed both Slammiversary & Bound for Glory as well, but TP is a very strong effort. The undercard is mostly solid with Red/Cide for the X Title, Tara/Kong in a Cage, the Six Man Tag Team Match, & The 3 Way Tag Team Title Match providing solid action. Steiner/Lashley & the KO Tag were mediocre, but came with low expectations anyway. The strength of the show was in the Double Main Event of Angle/Wolfe & AJ/Daniels/Joe IV for the World Title (yeah, not II, IV. It was their FIFTH PPV match in a 3 way setting people!) were both excellent. Angle/Wolfe was my pick for MOTN and was nothing short of an excellent technical display centered around who was, at the time, a fresh face to the company & a hot feud. Excellent work there. The 3 Way, while nowhere near as interesting as it had been in 05 or 06, was a fantastic athletic display from all three men. I loved it. So two strong main events makes for a strong PPV from TNA.

9/10

FR09 = Well this one has Feast or Fired which just pissed me off. I HATE THAT MATCH!!! But the rest of the undercard is fine. Guns Vs. BI for tag gold was very good as the opener. Tara/ODB was solid. The Hardcore Tag of Foley/Abyss Vs. Richards/Raven was surprisingly fun. Eight Man Tag was alright, and Steiner/Lashley was much improved from the month before. Its probably Lashley's best match in TNA (which ain't sayin' much). But once again, the real strength of the card is in the double main event. Angle/Wolfe II in 3 Degrees of Pain was not as good as the first match but still alot of fun. I liked the action & the intensity that both men brought. I thought it was dumb to have the "Using the Cage = DQ" rule since each fall only had one way to win anyway, so what would the harm be in letting them use the cage? Anyways, Wolfe & Angle had another vicious & grueling match and it was fun. AJ Vs. Daniels 1 on 1 for the gold was pretty brutal. Some of the hard falls they did in that match were pretty sick. Very good match between the two with the awesome finish of The Super Styles Clash. So once again, another very good show IMO.

8/10

AAO10 = This one didn't necessarily deliver as far as having classic matches goes, but it didn't need to. I felt like the show had a good story throughout the night, set up by the tournament. I said it before, but what I loved about this show was that when it was done, I walked away from it thinking The Pope & Mr. Anderson were stars. Both of them came off looking like elevated talents when it was done, and I was pleasantly surprised. So because of their individual paths to the finals, it made the show pretty enjoyable to me, and it was great to have Pope go in their hurt. AJ/Joe was a pretty good World Title match to have there as well. The one real dud on the show was the Nasty Boys/3D match which was, by far, the worst match on all three shows (even Feast or Fired). Not the greatest show in terms of in ring action, but the sum was greater than the parts to me.

7/10

Very happy with the DVD set.

Bound For Glory 06, 07, and 08
Best of Samoa Joe: Unstoppable
Best of AJ Styles Volume 1

Sacrifice 07 I haven't seen but every review I've read makes it seem like a fantastic show, I'd give that a look. And I love Genesis 06 personally, but I'm not sure if I'd say top 5 for it.
