It's plain as day to know 2012 is a MUCH better year for TNA than 2011 was.
In regards to the MCMG/3D match it was pretty much what they gave us at Genesis 2007 with the added story of it being their "final" match. So a near carbon copy match with a new story tossed in helped even things out. Sabin does his run up the table flip again. It's still unreal to see.
I was thumbing through a good bit of matches I wanted to see/rewatch/revisit/etc. So here we go:
Destination X 2010 - Ultimate X Match
Motor City Machine Guns vs Generation Me ~ ****
Victory Road 2010 - TNA Tag Team Championship Tournament Finals
Motor City Machine Guns vs Beer Money ~ ***1/2
Final Resolution 2010 - TNA Tag Team Championship Full Metal Mayhem Match
Motor City Machine Guns vs Generation Me ~ *
Lockdown 2011 - Xscape Match
Chris Sabin vs Jay Lethal vs Amazing Red vs Brian Kendrick vs Max Buck vs Jeremy Buck vs Rob Eckos vs Suicide ~ **1/4
Lockdown 2011 - Lethal Lockdown Match
Fortune vs Immortal ~ ****
Slammiversary 2012 - TNA X-Divison Championship
Austin Aries vs Samoa Joe ~ ****
I don't know what happened with that Full Metal Mayhem match. Random spots with no flow whatsoever. Dull as dull can be. Especially for those 4 ultra talented workers. I mean...dare I say it was the most disapointing match from TNA that I've ever seen. Especially when Ultimate X was so brilliantly exhuberant. Exactly what Ultimate X matches should be every time.
Lethal Lockdown was kind of just there. All of the real top talent was booted out in no time flat. (Sabin, Lethal, Red) While Kendrick, who's good but in TNA really never became motivated, and garbage Rob Eckos remained towards the end.
Lethal Lockdown OWNED. Nothing more to add other than that's the ideal match for that gimmick. Bloody, gritty, puts a stamp on the program. Loved it.
Aries vs Joe was a holy shit level sprint. A real call-back to days of forgotten X-Division style matches. Only was fitting to bring that back on a show celebrating 10 years of the company.
MCMG vs Beer Money was a really nicely done tag team match. One of the best I've seen...? Not really. I went into it expecting more. Quite frankly all I got was a really good
match. Not a great match. Don't mean to tear it up as I love all 4 when they duke it out, but I've seen people praise the hell out of it on here. Nobody mentions Beer Money vs Dudleys at Lockdown 09 in the same breathe, which btw was a better overall match. Whatever though. Not really too bothered by fans wanting to praise these guys. They work hard and want to show that they're the tops. Plus they went on to have the TNA 2010 match of the year not long after that in the 2/3 falls so that's what really matters I guess.
