OK why not:
My favorite PPV from every year in TNA
2004 = Turning Point: OK OK, there were only two 3hr PPVs in 04, but Turning Point was one of TNA's early gems and deserves the recognition. From DDP Vs. Raven, to Monty Vs. Abyss, to a very good X Division title match between Sabin & Petey, the show was very good. But it all got capped off by a FANTASTIC main event, my personal favorite match in TNA history: America's Most Wanted Vs. Triple X in Six Sides of Steel. Truly amazing.
2005 = Tuning Point: This show was loaded. We got Hardcore violence in Barbwire Massacre between Abyss & Sabu. We got a tag team dream match in AMW Vs. Team 3D in a Tables Match. Christian made his TNA PPV debut in a really good match with Monty Brown. AJ & Joe for the X Title is a fantastic match and my personal favorite X Title match in company history. And the main event of Jarrett Vs. Rhino was alot of fun, and it all ended with a very good teaser for Sting's arrival to TNA.
2006 = Slammiversary: Lot of great build ups and feuds heading into this show. I remember commenting that it almost felt like a Wrestlemania the way they had set most everything up. 3D Vs. James Gang was about a 100X better than it had any right to be. The X Division Rankings match was very well put together. Nash Vs. Sabin was well built and turned out well. Joe Vs. Steiner was a great sub main event with my favorite build up heading into the show. AJ/Daniels Vs. AMW for the tag titles was the show stealer, and one of the best matches of 2006. And the King of the Mountain to close was a lot of fun, with an ending that I thought was well executed. Great PPV all around.
2007 = Bound for Glory: I just reviewed this show in this very thread. Its my favorite PPV in TNA history. Go back and look at my review and you'll see why I think it. Its awesome.
2008 = Bound for Glory: Another very good show that had some very cool stuff. Steel Asylum actually came off less like a clusterfuck than you'd think and was actually pretty good. The 4 Way Tag Team Monster's Ball for the titles was a lot of fun, despite Mongo the ref not knowing what he was doing. Beer Money did great in there and we got a flaming table spot out of it. The three way match between AJ, Booker, & Christian was very cool. Jarrett Vs. Angle was a very emotional match up and was a nice return bout for Jeff with Foley thrown in for added flavor. And the main event of Sting Vs. Joe for the title was wild & crazy fun from bell to bell.
2009 = TIE Bound for Glory/Turning Point: I really couldn't pick one as both shows had their strengths. BFG was well built, had a great atmosphere and delivered a very entertaining show with a nice & classy ending that SHOULD have been the end of Sting's career. TP gets the nod on the strength of its Double main event of AJ/Daniels/Joe for the Title and the first meeting between Kurt Angle & Desmond Wolfe. Both matches were fantastic and garnered TNA some much deserved praise. Like I said, I like both shows, so its really a toss up here.
2010 = Lockdown: The Angle/Anderson match was by far TNA's best PPV match of 2010 (OK OK, Guns/BMI at VR was awesome too). The whole card was solidly fun to watch and was mostly well put together, but it was the triple main event that shined as AJ/Pope for the title and Lethal Lockdown were very good as well. I also have to say that the RVD Vs. Storm opener was pretty cool too.
2011 = Destination X: Had Roode won the title at BFG, I'd be saying that show, but nope! DX was a nice showcase of the X Division's history and their potential future. I liked most of the matches. The stand outs were Lynn Vs. RVD & the Four way for the TNA contract, and overall, it was a fun night of X Division action that TNA fans had been craving for so long.
