TNA World Tag Team Championship
Gun Money(c) vs. The British Invasion - ***1/4
Great match. Shelley & Storm had some nice chemistry together in only their second match as a team and the Brits got in more offense than usual. Some really nice false finishes, excellent opener.
Scott Steiner vs. Matt Morgan - *1/4
Actually better than expected, but that still isn't saying much...
TNA X Division Championship
Abyss(c) vs. Kazarian vs. Kendrick - **1/4
This just felt really odd. It was basically a handicap match and you just kept waiting for something to happen. Abyss would dominate, kaz and kendrick would be in control, repeat, repeat. Then when they finally went against each other it just suddenly ended. Pretty bad ending too.
Samoa Joe vs. Crimson - **1/4
Crimson is undefeated...? Yeah, great build with that. Joe did some good leg work in the beginning of the match but Crimson no sold it. Joe basically beat the hell out of him the whole match and Crimson all of a sudden got some offense and won. He's nowhere near ready for a push if you ask me.
Mickie James(c) vs. Angelina Love - **1/4
The match itself was pretty good, definitely above average, but the constant interference from Winter and the botched finish brought it down.
Last Man Standing
AJ Styles vs. Bully Ray - ****1/2
Jesus christ this was fantastic. Extremely physical from bell to bell. AJ brought out that ridiculously intense side he has where no one can stop him and it meshed together so well with Ray's constant stiffness. I really liked that it didn't rely too heavily on weapons like you see way too much of in these type of matches. I felt like an 8 year old kid watching AJ soar through the air towards the end and I have no problem saying that. I don't wanna spoil anything else, this was just really damn great. Good work TNA.
TNA World Heavyweight Championship
Sting(c) vs. Mr. Anderson - **1/4
The match was going along just fine, and fucking Bischoff had to ruin another ending. End of story.
#1 Contender's Match - Angle's Gold Medals on the Line
Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Jarrett - ***1/4
I honestly just never got excited during this match. These two have faced each other so many times, there's nothing new they could've done. It was the same multiple ankle locks, strokes, guitar shots and ref bumps. If you've seen any other match from the two, you've seen this one. Not that it was bad, just nothing stood out.
Some good, some bad. AJ/Bully is a sure fire MOTYC and easily the best match the company has had this year and in a longggg time.
