Brilliant match at that too. (ok, AJ's face work at THAT time was stellar.)

Oh, please avoid No Surrender 2006. I know it comes from the GOAT year, but seriously, it's the only fallacy that everything from 2006 is good. It's shit minus the good Ultimate X tag.

2005? Well I'd hate to be obvious in picking No Surrender since I'm partial so...Genesis 2005. Get a little Elimination X, Christian debut, & wild bloody main event all up in Shep's grill.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

you aren't a fan of Sabin/Senshi from No Surrender? I thought it was you who recommended it to me.

Genesis' card looks fun. MONTY BROWN imo

In the match with Joe, Sabin showed how good good his work can be against a heavyweight perfomer. BRilliant match that was

maybe I did from past viewing. I recently watched the show and that match isn't even too good. it has some stiff moments, but it's pretty weak for those two + a HORRIBLE finish.

Genesis is very fun at the heart of it. Show starts off slow, but the moment Christian comes it picks up. Monty Brown. Fuck that guy. And fuck his crap match vs a uber drugged out Hardy. But, it sure is funny though.

I dig Monty. Call it a guilty pleasure or what have you. If he POUNCES Jeff I'll mark.

I miss Christian Cage.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I'm notorious for my disdain towards him. Everything was bad except for the POUNCE & Alpha Bomb. Don't even get me started on the oodles and oodles of terrible promos done by him. Some people think Booker T on commentary is the cliche machine. Ha.

I do too. Although, the moment he bolted from TNA he had the year of his career in 2009 on ECW. So, it all worked out at the time.

iirc Senshi (Low-Ki) vs Daniels and Abyss/Christian from Lockdown OWN (i think you're a christian fan too so that'll help?)

Against All Odds has one of the best feel good moments I can recall in TNA too.
Christian's my all-time favorite wrestler, so yes I'm a fan of him. He's one of the reason I bought these DVD's, loved Christian in TNA and I wanted to own his title win over Jarrett at Against All Odds because that was awesome moment for me as a fan of his.

I'll bust out some STARS tomorrow b/c I'm lazy and sleepy at the moment. Long story short all 3 are legit really good - great events. Hard to say which I think is stronger between Lockdown & Slammiversary. Maybe Slammiversary thanks to the fantastic tag team championship match.

AAO - a solid Christian/Jarrett World Championship match, Rhino vs Abyss killing each other in a fun brawl, solid opener (watch for the obvious and hilarious botched delay though.), another solid tag team championship match, and the AWESOME rematch between Styles vs Daniels vs Joe. It's even better than the infamous Unbreakable match. Overall it is a very solid event. You'll enjoy it.

Lockdown - Team TNA vs Team Japan is quality, Daniels vs MYSTERY OPPONENT brings the goods too, Xscape is a fun spotty bout and includes Chris Sabin so ~!, Joe vs Sabu is meh. you'll get a kick out of Joe abusing the moron no doubt. Team 3D vs Team Canada is nothing special, but it's a decent enough way to cap their program. Christian vs Abyss is really good - especially if you never saw Abyss vs Styles from the year prior. (they do recycle a few spots, but it's still a damn good match) & Lethal Lockdown was about the 2nd or 3rd best in the history of the gimmick so enjoy.

Slammiversary - Probably the most fun you'll have watching an opener in TNA history. Well, maybe. Some do rival it, but it's loads of fun when 3D & James Gang brawl. Handicap match is a sleeper bout, X division 6 way is solid, Sabin vs NASH works and is about Nash's best match in TNA, AMW vs Styles/Daniels is GREAT. Easily the best match out of all 3 PPVs, Joe vs Steiner is a slugfest that I personally enjoyed, and KOTM was FUN. Seems to be a bit polarizing on how some fair with that gimmick though. It's a tad bit complex. But, considering the curve with TNA, it's not all bad.
Thanks for the mini-review. For the past couple of weeks I've been watching some old TNA matches that I can find on YouTube, mostly from around 2006, and mainly for nostalgia purposes (my name is fitting, isn't it?). And through doing that, it reminded me how GOOD TNA was in 2006. So many talents I liked such as: Christian, Jarrett, Styles, Daniels, Samoa Joe, AMW, LAX, Team 3D, Sting, competing in quality matches PPV after PPV. Had such a positive effect on me watching these classics matches again, that I wanted to own a few PPV's from around the time TNA was at it's absolute BEST. And considering that I haven't owned any TNA PPV's before, I said why not, and bought three PPV's (might buy some more soon). I arguably enjoyed TNA more than WWE at the time, and I find it odd that I don't own a single TNA PPV - but yet I own probably 30-40 WWE PPV's. I've watched again, or remember, most of the matches on the DVD's I'm getting, but for those I haven't, or can't remember, I appreciate the little review on them. I'll probably end up watching the whole shows anyway, instead of specific matches, which is something I rarely do with PPV's I've bought on DVD, but I want to relive the experience of how good TNA was then .

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

No Surrender 06 totally sucked besides the Ultimate X. Underrated in all-time bad TNA PPVs. If not for the UX redeeming it slightly, it really would be one of their worst.
EY/A-1. Whatever
Lethal/Petey sucked.
Abyss/Raven/Runt was ok.
Tag gauntlet was whatever.
Low Ki/Sabin was going along ok until the finish happened which sucked. Better off just watching the BFG rematch.
Cage/Rhino was decent.
UX was great.
Joe/Jarrett was hindered by the gimmick.

THUMBS DOWN

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Sometimes, I wonder what would have happened if Christian had stayed with TNA and not returned to WWE. Would he have got lost in the shuffle, specially when the Main Event Mafia was going on?

Man, loved his run in TNA and would love TNA to produce another Christian DVD giving us his 'Best Of' or something.
