I have the DVD and it is a very good show.
On the DVD there are the two Pre show matches of Killings vs. A-1 & Hoyt, Cassidy Riley, & Shark Boy vs. Shannon Moore & The Diamonds in the Rough. The tag match was acceptable, especially for a preshow match, and the Killings match blew chunks. Alot of the promos leading into the PPV were really good. Makes me wish TNA would still do pre shows for their PPVs.
Opener was the tag team match of The Naturals vs. Austin Aeries & Roderick Strong, which was a rematch from a Mini Tag Team Tournament to crown the Number One Contenders to AMW. This was a pretty good tag team match and given the rest of the card, it was the perfect match to open with given the athletic prowess of all four guys.
Next was an X Division Four Way of Jay Lethal vs. Michael Shane vs. Alex Shelley vs. Petey Williams. I still maintain that if you've seen one of these kind of matches you've seen almost all of them, but these was a good action packed filler, and it was the first time Jay Lethal did anything that was worth noting. This was probably his TNA PPV debut if I recall.
James Gang vs. LAX was up next. The video package for this match was awesome. This was actually a great feud if you look at it from a storyline perspecitive. Matches weren't that great though. This one was decent and it advanced the story well, but it was before Hernandez was added to the group, so you aren't getting LAX at its best either. The match is better than one would expect from The James Gang though.
AMW vs. Sabin & Dutt for the tag titles was a very different tag match as Sabin & Dutt had been nowhere near the tag team scene, so it felt like a fresh match. There was no big feud or anything. Dutt & Sabin just won the aforementioned Mini-Tourney, but Sabin suffered an ankle injury prior to the PPV, which they used during the match. I liked watching these two team clash and it was a nice change for both teams.
Rhino vs. Abyss Falls Count Anywhere is one of the best hardcore matches in TNA history without question. I was very pleased with this one. These two had a great chemistry during their feud and this was definately their best match up.
AJ vs. Joe vs. Daniels for the X Title - The rematch from Unbreakable. While this match is not as good as the Unbreakable, but still very good. The video package for this one was also very good, one of TNA's best. The best thing about this bout is that it isn't a carbon copy of the Unbreakable match and it tried to be different. Very good match.
Team 3D vs. Team Canada - This was a really good tag team match. Probably the best tag team match on the show (there were a lot of them it seemed, but they all had a purpose, so no complaints)
Jeff Jarrett vs. Christian Cage for the World Title - This is the main reason people seemed to like this show. Jarrett & Christian had one of the best World Title matches in TNA and it gave us a very special moment as well. This match was awesome.
