Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Slammi 08

Petey/Kaz-***1/2-***3/4
Womens Tag-**1/2
LAX/Team 3D-***
Kong Challenges-*1/2
AJ/Angle-****1/4
KOTM-***3/4-****

Overall, definitely the 2nd best PPV of 08 IMO. Lockdown is still ahead because of the better crowd and the fact that I believe Joe/Angle and Lethal Lockdown were better than AJ/Angle and KOTM respectively.

If the wedding and Kong segments had been replaced by 2 other decent-good matches, this easily would be no.1 in my book.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

I saw the KOTM match from last year's PPV and I thought it was a fun main event match although the gimmick is kind of strange with people being put into penalty boxes. It also felt weird that AJ Styles would climb the box for no reason at all only to get thrown off. But I did enjoy him fighting his friend Christian and Angle/Joe were great as usual. Chris Harris took advantage of being in the main event and I enjoyed his high flying spots as well. Good move making Kurt Angle the 1st TNA World Champion.

*** 1/2 - *** 3/4

Pretty much my ratings.

Kaz/Petey - ***3/4
Knockouts - **3/4
3D/LAX - ***
Kong Challenges - *
Styles/Angle - ****1/4
KOTM - ***1/2

Great show.

I find this year KOTM a bit boring

KOTM 07 - ****1/4

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Agree that last year's match might be the best King of the Mountain match so far at least that I've come to see. But then again, I never have liked close to about any of them to begin with really. Believe I had that match at ***3/4 also. In my top five favorite TNA matches of 2007.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

Ranking KOTM matches:

1) 2007 - That one was by far the best, probably because it had the best amount of talent suitable for this kind of match (AJ, Angle, Joe, Christian, and Harris did really well too) One thing I really liked about this match was that it seemed to really elevate Harris. Unfortunately nothing came of it, but after a few minutes, he didn't look out of place with that crew at all. Also love that AJ table spot. Only announce table spot in TNA history I think.

2) 2004 - Usually the first one is the best, but it took a few years to top it. I think this match had the best build up to any KOTM match so far. I started out with Harris & Raven competing for a shot at Jarrett, but Harris got injured by Raven, so AJ took his place and took the title. Then AJ proceeded to defend his title against Harris, Raven, & somehow Ron Killings got into teh frey and took the title. So you had champion Ron Killings going up against AJ Styles, who was in line for a title rematch, Chris Harris, who got screwed out of his initial title shot against Jarrett, Raven who had been in the mix of the World title scene for a while, and Jarrett who never got a rematch for the belt. So you had five guys that had legitamate claims to the World Title. No need for qualifying matches this year. And the gimmick was so unique and different at the time that it instantly became a hit with me, so I loved it.

3) 2006 - Very good match, but the main reason I like this one is because of the ending. That was one of the best booked finishes in TNA history, and that great heel response Jarrett got at the end was simply priceless. Great way to cap off what I felt was one of the best PPVs in TNA history.

4) 2008 - Another very good KOTM match. It didn't have the insane spots that some of the previous ones did, but the action was pretty consistant throughout and I really enjoyed it. Roode earned his stripes in this match, and guys like Joe, Booker, Chrisian, & Rhino performed up to their usual standards. Nash also added a bit of guest enforcer. My one major knock on it was the finish which I felt was kind of rushed. Other than that though it was a very fun bout.

5) 2005 - Now don't get me wrong. Just because I put this last doesn't mean its bad. In all honesty, its the only reason to check out Slammiversary 2005 which was a pretty lackluster show overall. Monty Brown was the star of this match IMO as he came up with some cool ways to hit The Pounce, and Abyss, AJ, and Raven did well with the hardcore aspect of things. Waltman actually looked to be in shape in this match and this was the point where he actually started doing some good things for TNA in the ring (he was way out of shape at Lockdown) The only spot I hated in this match was the use of the stapler. It's just a dumb spot because its obviously not loaded (Raven/Abyss the next month being the obvious exception) Pretty good match up, and watching Raven win was cool, but weakest KOTM to date.

Re: Official TNA DVD Help/Discussion/Review Thread

My Slamm 2008 Rating. Re-watched a few of them.

Kaz vs Petey - ***3/4
BP/Moose Vs ODB/Gail/Roxxi - **1/4
Lax/Team 3d - **1/4
Kong Squash - 1/4* (had this at N/a)
Aj vs Angle - **** - ****1/4
KOTM - ***1/2

Will have to re-watch 2007 KOTM to give it a fair rating but I remember loving it.

Most people here are overrating things, I'd say.

Meh, Just a difference of 1/4* or 1/2* here and there I wouldn't say it's nothing outrageous or anything.
