Any update on TNA finding a new US DVD distributor for their DVD's for Best Buy and F.Y.E.? You would think Carter or Bischoff would have this as a priority for the company to try and secure. It's been 9 months now.

I just flicked through all the match listings for every show, and anything that got a somewhat decent amount of time, I'd chuck it on the list and get around to it eventually. That's not saying quality depends on time, but I'd like to imagine something like a 10 minute Bully/AJ match would be better than a 2 minute Matt Morgan squash.'naa mean?

A Daniels/Angle feud could still work fine today. I'm disappointed we didn't get any 1-on-1 matches between them considering all the tag matches they've been a part of in the past few months.
TWC was the greatest, that's the first place I ever came across TNA back in the weekly ppv days. Ah memories. I've got a rough list of stuff I need to watch for my top tna 20 I'm slowly getting round to working on, plus their youtube channel has that handy thing where i can rent a ppv for £1 which I can use for catching up on the year or two I was out of the loop b/c why not, i actually have a job this christmas. Top TV matches seems like a fun side thing to do, I've got quite a few impacts from this year knocking about on my laptop anyway back from when I thought it was smarter to dl them than catch it on youtube. Might even have the london shows which would be fun, could motivate me to yell at my friends who live in manchester to come w/ me to the tv tapings there too.

I just realised that Matt Morgan vs Jeff Hardy could be a potential world title match next year too. Yikes, do not want. Do not want. Morgans new character isn't as awful as he once was but I'd wager he's still a dogshit wrestler and I want him nowhere near the main event. Let him float around the tag division

Surely they've learned after the debacle that was the Morgan/Hardy series at the tail end of 2010. I don't know what they see in Morgan. Honestly. I don't get it. If there was ever a time to put the title on him, I would've given him a run during Summer '09 when he was floating around the title scene. Not a long run, just a little one to test the waters and see what happens. I wasn't even a fan of him back then, but the product was bland enough then that it wouldn't have mattered too much.

TNA has to have more brains to know not to book Morgan near the main event scene again. All 4 of his World Championship bouts sucked. The latter vs Hardy were some of the worst I've ever seen. No thanks.

TNA DVDs finally came today. On Victory Road 2006 atm. Watching the random Rhino vs Monty Brown match and ugh. I made a fair comparison that I have to share. Matt Morgan took the place of Monty Brown. Think about it. Utter crap wrestler with no redeeming qualities at all being used in a few main events here or there and the rest of their matches being bad or uninteresting. When Brown left we only got a brief point until Morgan was hired. If only TNA did the right thing and let both stay away. Why did the company use the morons in a somewhat good capacity? Monty Brown's promos were even worse than his matches. Hate that guy.

I'd say Brown actually has Morgan beat from an overall perspective in ring though. That's how bad Morgan is. Brown has a few decent bouts and an occasional solid bout thanks to vs an opponent capable of carrying him. Matt Morgan's best match off the top of my head doesn't even fall under the "**" category. Garbage.

Did nothing for me.

Kurt wasn't gonna get something good out of Morgan. Kurt needs people to help him out most of the time.

I love how much hype Morgan/Angle got and then the match actually happened & nobody cared lmao.
Morgan is just a big oaf that can not have a good one on one match with anyone because he is just so terrible and nobody gives a damn about him.

TNA Destination X 2010 Review:

Ladder match: Brian Kendrick vs. Amazing Red vs. Daniels vs. Kazarian - ***1/4
Good opener, not as good as I rememberd it but I watched the show live back then so I guess it was more exicting. Anyway, it's still very good way to open the show, my problem with the match is that it wasn't nothing else than just spot, one minuet of rest and then once again big spot. Wish it had more CHOAS feeling that it should had in my opinion.

Um, they had Tara/Deffeny and Terry squashing Magnus here. Don't be mad at me for not watching it please.

Ultimate X: Generation Me vs. The Motor City Machineguns - ***3/4+
Well this was awesome. Lots of innovative moves and just 13 mins of non-stop action. Really fun match, MCMG were on fire at this year with the crazy series with GM and Beer Money.

Scott Hall and Syxx-Pac vs. Kevin Nash and Eric Young - **

This wasn't bad at all. Maybe because I watched this day after I watched the Ultimate X I didn't thought the match was slow and boring. Scott Hall looked maybe in the best way you can imagine him in 2010 and overall it was fine. Still not good by any means. And again I'll say that this storyline could make Young a star but for some reason TNA choosed to bring him back to his old comedy character. Morons.

TNA X Division Championship: Doug Williams(c) vs. Shannon Moore - **1/2
Um, this was fine, a little too generic for me but acceptable wrestling. It's funny that from Daniels, Kazarian, Kendrick and Amazing Red they gave SHANNON MORE the shot.

TNA World Tag Team Championship: Matt Morgan and Hernandez(c) vs. Beer Money Inc. - **1/2
I'm starting to think that even if you will put two shoes as Beer Money's opponents they'll still put fun match out of this. The match told a good story as you'd exepct but I have no idea why Beer Money didn't won here. Yeah, this whole thing leas to the "WE" thing with Morgan which was pretty awesome but this match build for Beer Money using Hernandez/Morgan need to prove themselves to each other. This just made them look really weak.

Mr. Anderson vs. Kurt Angle - ***1/4
Really good wrestling match, didn't told the story I thought it would but they both did good job and they have a very good chemistry. Post-match promo from Anderson was great, can't wait to their Lockdown classic.

TNA World Heavyweight Championship: AJ Styles(c) vs. Abyss **1/2
It was actually fun and good until the ending. Do I really needs to say words when I have a video with Benny Hill's music background that'll describe this in the best way?

Ladies and gentleman, this how the PPV that people paid for ended.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSa7VjjA0TI.

Overall the show was good and had good to great matches, without the bad booking at the Main Event I could enjoy this more.

Better to say the match happened. Commentary put Morgan over for the match. Following it nothing happened. That's the funny part.

Ultimate X from Destination X 2010 is superb. Off the top of my head I'd put it in my top 3. Actually was GREAT. Opposed to where some Ultimate X matches have fallen flat.


TNA Sacrifice 2006

1) World X Cup Tournament - Round 2
Petey Williams vs Jushin Liger ~ **3/4


2) NWA Tag Team Championship
America's Most Wanted(c) (Chris Harris & James Storm) vs AJ Styles & Christopher Daniels ~ ***1/2


3) Raven vs Alastair Ralphs ~ 1/2*


4) Rhino vs Robert Roode ~ **1/2


5) Team 3D (Brother Ray & Brother Devon) vs The James Gang (BG James & Kip James) ~ **1/2


6) World X Cup Tournament - Round 3: Gauntlet Battle Royal
Team TNA (Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Jay Lethal, & Sonjay Dutt) vs Team Canada (Petey Williams, Eric Young, Johnny Devine, & Tyson Dux) vs Team Japan (Jushin Liger, Minoru Tanaka, Black Tiger IV, & Hirooki Goto) vs Team Mexico (Shocker, Puma, Incognito, & Magno) ~ ***1/4


7) Sting & Samoa Joe vs Jeff Jarrett & Scott Steiner ~ **


8) NWA World Championship - Full Metal Mayhem Match
Christian Cage(c) vs Abyss ~ **1/4



~ Fun opener. I'll enjoy any chance to see Jushin Liger. This was no exception. Too bad the match was only 7 minutes. You can tell they needed much more. Solid start.

~ Tag team championship was really good. Damn all 4 tore it up. I'd rate it a touch higher if they didn't go into that annoying tag team breakdown stuff where everyone comes in, hits a move, and makes a pin regardless of who is legal. During that time the match lost it's smoothness, only for a tiny bit though. Awesome match overall. Styles & Daniels didn't have one bad match on PPV while as champs. Best move ever letting them become a team around this time. Recommend everyone to watch. Then go watch their rematch at Slammiversary 2006. That one is even better.

~ Didn't hate Raven vs A-1 like I thought I might have. So +1 to the positives of this show. A-1 is a hack. Props to TNA for trying to make him feel relevant here. Although, nobody bought him as a threat to Raven. Raven wins after some forgettable back work by Ralphs. Simple showcase match. No complaints overall. TNA used PPVs here to establish things. I miss this time so damn much.

~ Rhino vs Roode, plain and simple a fairly solid affair. Roode is the man. Showed flashes of what he'll be in this one. Never realized how much he used the headlock to weardown opponents till going back and watching these older PPVs. Glad he moved away from that/made his control segments more interesting. Always liked Rhino. He felt motivated during his high point in TNA. It showed. I liked this match. Nothing too special, but entertaining. Put Roode over. Like it should.

~ 3D vs Outlaws...FUN. Really, I was blown away by how much I liked this. Snowflakes might not look spectacular, but please don't sleep on it. That's GOOD for the James Gang. The psychology of this was quality and the ending actually was a nice touch. 6 year receipt. haha. I'm down. I knew their Bingo Hall Brawl was good. So lukewarm on a straight up wrestling match between the two when this started. Biggest surprise of the night. No doubt.

~ Gauntlet was quality. Stick all of that talent in a showcase like that and how could it not be? Petey & Puma worked hard here. Especially Petey. Match to start the night + being number 3 in that match? Touche. Only bad part was Magno botching. Everyone else brought it. Shocker brought nothing. Which is exactly what made him ok in this. Post match Kevin Nash drops Puma, cuts a promo, and sets the tone for one of the better angles of 2006. KEVIN NASH IS THE X-DIVISION.

~ Tag match was nothing special. Did plenty to advance stories along. Pushed Joe to the heavyweight scene. Continued the Sting/Jarrett program. All good there. The vets did their obvious spots. Some blah transitions during it. Forgettable moments you'll see in all of their matches in TNA. Joe comes in and is hot the whole way through. Joe helped this match go along.

~ Well this main event was severely weak. It was just there. Tired phrase that is on point. A few decent spots here and there. That's about it. These two are better than this. Their steel cage match proves it. Oh well. Christian wins and continues being awesome. Abyss? I think he'd be ok during the rest of the year.

~ While the main event was underwhelming, this PPV was exactly how most TNA PPVs during their best years were: fun, good, & fly on by. They're so easy to watch. Gives you a lot of everything on a show. I miss that depth. Among a lot of other things. MOTN was the tag team championship. Recommend this show, of course. I'll pimp out 2003, majority of 2005, & 2006 TNA forever.
