TNA World Heavyweight Championship - Special Referee: Eric Bischoff
AJ Styles(c) vs. Samoa Joe - ***1/2
Excellent match with a pretty flat ending.

Finals
Mr. Anderson vs. The Pope - **1/2
Skip the first half of this match, it's extremely boring.

Overall: 5.75/10
Basically a one match show with some decent stuff around it. Some of you might think I was harsh on all the DUDS but none of them are really worth watching.

Yeah, I definitely think those ratings are harsh. I had no expectations for AAO, but was surprised to see how well TNA built up the tournament, especially in one night. They really made it seem like it was as important as winning the Royal Rumble or something, and you also had a nice selection of matches featuring new talent and old names.

-Pope/Wolfe - **3/4
-Hernandez/Morgan - **1/2
-Angle/Anderson - **3/4
-Abyss/Foley - *3/4
-Team 3D/Nastys - **1/4
-Pope/Morgan - **1/2
-Abyss/Anderson - **3/4
-Styles/Joe - ***1/2
-Pope/Anderson - ***

They did try to make the shot seem important on the road to Lockdown, but they just picked the wrong matchups to have and guys that had no chemistry together or who are just bad in the ring. And the first half of Pope/Anderson was just brutal, no idea why they had those two do the rematch at No Surrender.

The Pope/Wolfe opener was excellent, IMO. Angle/Anderson was very good too. Didn't really like the WHC match, too much of Flair and Bischoff. Mr. Anderson was the star of the night, not The Pope. His heel psychology was excellent that night, especially in semi-finals against Abyss.

Agree with what KingCrash said. Pope/Wolfe was probably my favorite tournament match of the night, because it actually flowed well and had two guys that actually had chemistry together. Abyss/Foley was the usual pointless hardcore stuff from the two. Nothing I can even remember from the match besides the thumbtacks spot. Team 3D/Nasties was just terrible. The Nasty Boys looked like it was their first match in the business and then they just randomly won. Anderson/Abyss have never had a good match, it was a snoozefest. And the last few minutes of the finals were excellent, but the first half of the match was not exactly fun to watch.

Lockdown 2010 was my favorite TNA PPV from last year. It was tons of fun from top to bottom and Angle/Anderson was the company's MOTY. Told such a great story while of course having some crazy ass spots. AJ/Pope was really good as well bar the poopy ending. I'm pretty excited for Lockdown this year, mainly because it normally delivers.

Turning Point 2010

X Division Title: Jay Lethal (c) vs. Robbie E
I'm not quite sure why they had Robbie E winning a non-title street fight over Lethal a few days before, so he could then win the title from him right then and there. But that's TNA for you. Aside from that, we all knew Robbie E was winning here, which is fine since Lethal's title reign had sucked. They were pretty evenly matched and put on a solid show, but if TNA is going to open a ppv with the X Division again, it needs to need so much more than this.

**1/2 (out of 5)


Mickie James vs. Tara
A solid wrestling match that turned into a very entertaining brawl. One of the rare instances in which a non-finish actually works in the favor of the match. These two really tore it up. I'm not rating it too high, since I know that I'm biased by the fact that women's matches are generally so terrible, but this was a good showing here.

**3/4


World Tag Titles: The Motor City Machine Guns (c) vs. Team 3D
Wow. I knew it would be solid, but I never thought it would be this good. The level of respect there was through the roof. I love how both teams tease the other with their finishers. I love the exchanges throughout the match, and go-home sequence was great. It didn't turn into a finisher fest, but there were kickouts. And it ended right when it needed to. Definitely one of my favorite tag matches in recent years.

****


Rob Van Dam vs. Tommy Dreamer
After 3D/MCMG, this show needed a piss break match, not too forty year olds going at it for 16 minutes. Now I understand why WWE does pissbreak matches, because the crowd might have been dead even if this match were good.

I'm not against 90s era guys going at it again, nor am I against ECW guys tearing it up again. I quite enjoyed RVD/Sabu and Dreamer/Raven from Hardcore Justice...but this match was weak. The weapons spots were stale, a lot of the exchanges seemed to be in slow motion, and the match never left second gear. It was so slow that they could have wrestled another fifteen minutes and made the argument that the first half was all build. Also, the storyline made little sense. Eric Bischoff got it in RVD's head than someone from EV2 was defecting to Immortal, so RVD took it upon himself to just start trouble with all of them. What did he have to gain from a match with Dreamer? What did he have to gain from a victory? Would a match, or beating Dreamer, prove anything?!? No, it wouldn't. If he was a turncoat, he was a turncoat. It just didn't make much sense.

**


Fortune vs. EV2
First of all, I thought Lethal Lockdown at BFG was the end of it. Isn't that the point of matches like that. And if the feud is going to continue another match, they need to raise the stakes a bit more. A fun gimmick would have seriously helped. Worse, TNA did a horrible job of making clear the stipulations of the match. Going in, I wasn't sure if it was 1) Losing team is fired 2) If EV2 loses, they're fired 3) the guy who gets pinned is fired 4) the guy in EV2 who gets pinned is fired 5) Winners pick a member of the opposite team that is fired 6) Fortune picks which member of EV2 is fired.

Which made it even more baffling when Sabu is pinned, and all of the members of EV2 immediately offer consolation, the commentators talk about Sabu is gone from TNA, Fortune was shouting "bye bye Sabu" and THEN had Flair come out, and the commentators were like "which member is going to be fired?!?" Flair then starts talking about the members of EV2 should look at each other for the last time, then he fires Sabu, and then Sabu gets irate at being fired by Flair, even though he seemed to be aware of it moments earlier.

TNA did a really awful job of making the stip clear, because the story was all over the place in the end.

Did it affect the match? Not much, no. All of the exchanges were quite good, and since this match was shorter than LL, it really amplified the action. I'm also quite glad that they took out Kendrick from the match before it started, whether a work or not. One exchange between Sabu and Styles was nuts. Solid match, but a feud going a month too long and inexplicable booking made the whole thing seem off.

***


The Pope vs. Abyss
A lot of people said that this was the worst match on the card, and guess what? It was.

They had ZERO chemistry together, I HATE lumberjack matches, and the finish was just pure WCW 2000 garbage.

*


Samoa Joe vs. Jeff Jarrett
This match just oodles of fun. A big step up from their lumberjack match back in 2006. It was very back and forth. Joe looked Strong, Jarrett was in great heel more, it was all action, and the finish got Jarrett over huge again as a heel. But yes, I wish it wasn't at the expense of Joe, who looked like a fool by the end of this feud. Still, a fun match.

***


TNA World Title: Jeff Hardy (c) vs. Matt Morgan
I actually really enjoyed the buildup video to this match. It got Hardy over big as a heel, and played with the twist and turns of who would face him at the ppv, while interestingly establishing Morgan as a face. I don't remember how it all played on TV, but it looked exciting here.

I also had very low expectations for the match itself, but it turned out fine. Hardy got adjusted to working as a heel, but Morgan did his job nicely. It was very David/Goliath at first, but it was never one-sided, and I like how it took three twists of hate to take out Morgan. The match didn't quite feel like THE MAIN EVENT, but it was passable enough.

**3/4


Overall, it was a solid ppv. The KO match, tag titles, 10-man tag, and Joe/Jarrett were the highlights, but RVD/Dreamer was weak, Abyss/Pope was poor, and the main event was so-so. It was definitely not the worst TNA ppv of the year, as some inexplicably claimed. That award EASILY goes to Slammiversary. Solid ppv.

Where is the best place to get TNA DVDs in the UK and can anyone recommend the essentials?

In your opinion of course
