I simply downloaded the VLC player and it works. First two matches down already. Magnus got PISSED in his match. WHERE IS THE FUCKIN CHAIR. (imo)
Good little match between the two. No doubt.

I used to think this was the best overall TNA PPV they ever produced. That changed. Still like it tho.
The main event wasn't nearly what it appeared to be for me when I first saw it. I was only 14 back then. I'm 22 now. I can see what appealed to me about it back then. I hate Sabu so that didn't do it any favors. Weird match. It starts off normal, then goes into brawl forms as a LOT of TNA main events around this time did. Then it goes back to a traditional tag bout. Then back to brawling by introducing chairs. Ref doesn't care. He lets it go. lolz, ok. Then the obligatory run-ins occur with Abyss jumping and killing Sabu. Followed by Jeff Hardy returning to take out Jarrett. K. Match was all over the place. Gore to the ref and Raven through the table ruled.
One match I really have to rant on is that shitty 3LK vs Kip/Monty match. Ugh. What a TERRIBLE feud. Even the die hard TNA fans didn't care. Don't blame them. Who did? 3 Live Kru were probably the worst stable I've ever seen. Not to mention how bad the match was, but their hype videos every single month would never end. Literally 6 minute hype videos. Filled with the same stuff over and over. They would show random clips from the 2004 days for some weird reason. What does the 3LK in zuit suits have to do with this feud? Nothing progressed yet it was a program that lasted around 4 1/2 months. All for it to end when BG punches Kip a few times and counts him out. Oh TNA. Around this point you did so much good and then you had this crap.
While Joe vs Styles was the easy MOTN, I really have to give big props to the great Lynn/Waltman match. Not only was the action good, but the story defined the bout. Post match beatdown by Waltman =
. Tenay flips out. So of course it's hilarious.
Fun side note:
Austin Aries TNA debut here. Amazing to see how his career has turned out within this company. Granted it was the second time around. That shouldn't matter. Glad he came back.
Good PPV. The only real blemish on the show is the 3LK vs Kip/Monty. That sets the curve nicely. Up next:
UNBREAKABLE. I wonder how that holds up. Only match I really remember being superb is the main event.
