Yeak still have to watch that match, skipped it over becouse I was curious how the ladder match was since I heard so many great things about it. But going to was that match for sure sometime this week.

Watched Styles/Joe from Sacrifice 05 last night again. Gotta say that I love that match and I miss TNA 05-06, and Joe from 05-06. I like the pacing, and some of the counters were well done, both guys looked strong and it got a good amount of time, crowd was great too. The finish was kinda meh, but made sense in setting up for the triple threat at Unbreakable.

**** 1/4

I'm with you dude, that's why I went to Amazon this week to buy the Best of Samoa Joe Unstoppable DVD and once I was there they offered to throw in the Best of AJ Styles Volume 1 and 2 all for 29.94 so I went ahead and got all three . The expected delivery date is Tuesday, can't wait

Good deal man, I have AJ's first dvd. It was such a different product back then, TNA 05-06 was fantastic, I haven't been interested in the product since. Joe was an animal and actually gave a damn, AJ was having great matches with any and everyone, Petey, Sabin, Dutt, Shelley, AJ, Joe, Daniels, were all holding up the X Division, it was a good product. The main event scene was a bit out there looking back at the mix of contenders, Jarrett, Nash, Rhyno, AJ, DDP, etc. But picked up once Christian and Sting came on board. The tag division was strong with Team 3D, AMW, AJ/Daniels, LAX, Team Canada. Ahhh, good times. Oh, AND the Impact Zone was HOT most of time. Oh well, atleast I have old shows.

With Slammiversary just a couple of weeks away, I decided to pop in Slammiversary 2006, the first Slammiversary and the second TNA DVD I purchased. I remember the buildup to this was really good but that the event was a mixed bag. Let's see how it holds up:

Bingo Hall Brawl: Team 3D vs. The James Gang
This one was already in progress when the show began, no entrances or fanfare. It was an interesting approach, but this was when TNA felt a LOT like a variety show, so I was not a fan of the format. This was an awkward match, because on quite a few occassions you could literally see guys waiting for someone to hit them. It was very strange and it took me out of the match. This was mostly garbage wrestling, which made it all the more embarrassing when Bubba Dudley, after the match, said "that's how it's done!" in clear reference to the resurrection of ECW in 2006. What made the comment so sad was that this match was pretty standard, while One Night Stand 2006 had Mysterio/Sabu, the Hardcore tag match, and Cena/RVD, which were all great. This was just okay, and probably shouldn't have been the opener.

*3/4

Rhino vs. Bobby Roode & Coach D'Amore
A gimmick match like this should NEVER been 11 minutes long. That's just too much. It was fun to see D'Amore get his ass handed to him, and Rhino played it well, but that's about it. A fun, standard match that probably overstayed its welcome.

**1/2

X Division Rankings Match
Great X Division stuff, back when it meant something and gave these guys 20 minutes to show why. Good action, never let up, very fun.

***

Kevin Nash vs. Chris Sabin
Nice to see back in action, and puts Sabin over without actually taking the pin. Nash plays a great heel here, while Sabin defends the honor of the X Division. This was a good storyline that, like all things TNA, went absolutely nowhere. Fun match, and Sabin looked great, even better taking the loss.

**1/2

America's Most Wanted vs. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels
Classic tag team match here, with some great offense, defense, storytelling, and highflying action. It looks good on paper, and it is good in execution. That's so rare to see.

***1/4

Samoa Joe vs. Scott Steiner
TNA knew they had something. Whether it was the sole reason they signed Scott Steiner or not, they knew they had it. They started playing with Joe and Steiner crossing paths pretty far in advance, and had a lot of fun teasing it in the tag match a month prior. Joe was TNA's biggest badass, and Steiner was one of the biggest badasses of the era before. They both could wrestle, could fight, and were evenly matched. This was when TNA really made you want to see a match. Was it as good as the hype? Not really. Some of the exchanges are awkward and Steiner using a steel chair kind of dampens the fun, but there's a lot of good stuff here. What I love is that there's so much respect between these two. They both play the power game nicely, trade holds, and give each other hell, the ending kind of comes out nowhere, as is so often the case with TNA matches, but it was a good way for Joe to "catch" Steiner without really beating him. They leave the door wide open for a rematch, which of course, never happens (unless you count that UWF match).

**1/2

King of the Mountain Match
The most star-powered KOTM match is also probably the worst. Sting and Abyss really seemed out of place, the match never left first gear, and there were some really awkward spots (namely Christian trying to climb the ladder in reverse). The spots were so-so, but the ending did get a huge reaction, which was nice. If you want a great KOTM match with a big reaction, check out the one from 2007, which is one of the best matches of the year. And the ending was very unsatisfying.

**1/4


All in all, this show has not aged well. Its flaws were even worse today. The show suffered from a weird start and a bad finish better suited for TV, but there some solid stuff in the middle. The handicap match is fine, X Division match is pretty good, Sabin/Nash is solid, and the tag title match follows a nice old fashioned formula, and Steiner/Joe is still a pretty cool sight to see, but the lackluster main event kind of left me walking away disappointed.

It was actually the second Slammiversary as the first was in 2005. I haven't watched either in a while, but I always thought both were rather solid. Did not think much of any of the four taking place after (although 07's has the best KOTM match.) I wish they had put the X-Division KOTM that took place the Impact before Slammiversary 08 on the DVD seeing as that one easily trumped the KOTM that year.

Anyone have the Jeff Jarrett DVD and if so, is it worth buying?

I meant the first Slammiversary I purchased, but I hear ya.

The 2008 and 2009 KOTM matches were just kind of...there. They weren't great, but they weren't terrible, either.

This may have already been asked... forgive me...

Is TNA shown in the UK? I'm sure i've seen it around a few years ago, but haven't come across it in some time...
