Final Resolution 2005 is definately worth picking up soley for the title matches. Three of the best title matches in TNA history IMO.

The undercard was mostly solid. The opener was 3LK vs. Daniels/Bentley/Kazarian. This was just when Daniels was starting to get over big, so the fans pretty much cheered him the whole time. I remember being pleasently surprised with this match, which is surprising because I hated 3LK.

Primetime vs. Sonjay Dutt was kind of the sleeper hit of the show. No big feud or anything was going on to lead into it, but the two were allowed to put on a really good X Division match. If you like X Division style matches, definately get this one as its a bit of a forgotten gem.

Next was Dustin Rhodes vs. Kid Kash. I never liked Kash as a wrestler and Rhodes was/is past his prime, but I thought they had a good match. They played up Rhodes' size advantage which was good.

Erik Watts vs. Raven was iffy. For those who remember, this PPV took place like a day or two after Erik Watts tried to kill himself. I was surprised the match actually took place. Well Watts' heart clearly wasn't in it, but it wasn't a completely horrible match. Worst match on the show though.

Jeff Hardy vs. Scott Hall w/Piper as the Guest referee. This match would have been a waste if it wasn't for Piper. They did some great comedy bits at the beginning and thankfully they kept it short. There was also a little surprise after the match that involved a returning superstar. Now for some reason, on the DVD they have this match listed as being Falls Count Anywhere. I'm not sure why. The match never left the ring and by all indications was a regular match.

Three Way Elimination Match between Kevin Nash, Monty Brown, & DDP came next with the winner getting a World Title shot at Jarrett in the main event. I was surprised they didn't have this open the show, but oh well. The match was decent, with the Monty/DDP face off being the best part, but this match was used more for setting up something rather than doing something great. Thing to watch for in this match: The Fans chant "Super Shredder" at Nash. Ha!

Now here is where things got awesome. Team Canada vs. AMW for the tag titles is probably the best non gimmicked tag match I have seen since the golden age of tag team wrestling when the WWF & NWA both had really strong divisions. IMO, its definately the best TNA Tag Title Match ever. Many might disagree with me, but oh well. It's a very good match. You won't see many tag matches that are better than this.

AJ Styles vs. Petey Williams vs. Chris Sabin in an Ultimate X for the X Title - You said you already saw it, so I guess I don't have to review it, but I will anyway. Its my personal favorite Ultimtate X Match. The bumps they did in this one were unbelievable and all three guys really took a beating. AJ Styles was the star though. He was Phenomenal (pun intended)

Main Event - Well it's Jarrett vs. The Winner of the 3 Way. I don't want to spoil it for you, but I will say that the match is highly entertaining. Jarrett's opponent came off looking like Superman while Jarrett came off looking like the biggest chicken shit lucky heel in wrestling. It was very well done.

Now unfortunately extras are lacking on this DVD. I don't know why but for some reason alot of the early TNA PPV DVDs have backstage footage as their extras and its always like a wrestling working out, or them getting set to enter the arena or something. It's mostly pretty boring footage. The only TNA PPV that had interesting footage done in this vein that I saw was Turning Point 2004 (showed AMW/XXX backstage after the cage match, Abyss getting thumbtacks pulled out of his head, and a Traci Brooks photoshoot)

The three title matches alone are worth the price of the DVD, especially since two of them aren't on any other TNA DVD. The undercard is solid like I said. Nothing too special happened, but there was nothing horrible either. But once again, it was the title shows that made it a great PPV.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Does anybody know a good place online for decent prices on TNA DVD's(or just wrestling DVD's in general) that has reasonable shipping as well?

I'm all over Ebay looking and there's a few decent auctions, but most of the stuff I want is in the stores and they almost never combine shipping.(And at $4-7 an item, I'm definitely not interested in that) Even when they do combine shipping it's usually like still $4-5 for every other item after you paid $6 for the first.

When I order from TNA or ROH, I don't mind paying $10 for the whole order of 4 or 5 DVD's. But adding up to like $18 bucks for 3 DVD's is just not something I'm willing to shell out.

FYE.com tends to have pretty solid prices and if you're a member they're about 1-2 bucks cheaper. The DVDs usually run from $10-$15, when they're in stock they have some older DVDs from 2005/2006 that run about $7.99

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

The cover for X-Division volume 2 almost warrants a purchase.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I was tempted to even spend more but I held off on AAO 08, Final Resolution 08, and I still need Slammi 07 eventually just for the KOTM match. The Best of 07 DVD just didn't warrant a purchase from me since I needed BFG anyway and 2 of the matches on there are from that event.

Plus since I got Genesis it has the Kaz/Cage ladder match as well. Hopefully this will inspire me to eventually go to ShopTNA.com and get Sacrifice 07.(Which is probably the best all around TNA card of all time and then I would have all the matches from The Best of 07 DVD that I wanted anyway)

That X Volume 2 has that awesome 6 man tag from Impact in 05, Shelley/Joe/Daniels vs AJ/Aries/Dutt. Atleast **** from what I remember, I really wanted to see that match again.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Tarro, do you record all the events onto disc? Just it may be worth investing in a recordable DVD player if you like having all the PPV's.
