TNA Slammiversary 2008 Review



1. X Division Champion Petey Williams vs Kaz

For the first time in two months, the X division gets a regular match instead of some type of caged cluster. They didn't do anything heavily fast paced or "spotty" like the typical X division match but concidering how each person is not at 100% going into this (Kaz's arm & Petey's eye), this was a good solid encounter between the two that wasn't the sterotypical "X division spotfest" but the moment to look out for was Kaz being busted open & the aftermath when The Monster Abyss returned & got his hands on everyone in the ring...including Rhaka Khan.




Rating: ***




2. Gail Kim, O.D.B., Roxxi vs Angelina Love, Velvet Sky, Moose

Just like how the X division match was the first time in two months where they didn't just just cram everyone in the division into one match, the same goes for the knockouts here & you get the same result. A solid match that was fun to watch with some nice storytelling & selling by The Beautiful People & Moose (again, please find better names for these girls) by working on Kim's injured knee throughout the match.




Rating: **




3. TNA Tag Team Champions L.A.X. vs Team 3D

Instead of this match being a brawling style that you have seen time & time again from their matches in the past, this was more of a traditional tag team match that went back & forth between both teams with old school storytelling like Team 3D double teaming & cutting off the ring building towards Homicide to get the hot tag. Another solid encounter.




Rating: ***




4. Womens Champion Awesome Kong's Open Challenge

This is a gimmick similar to how Kurt Angle used to do his gold medal challenge back in WWE where a "random fan" is picked, gets a match against Kong, and if the fan wins...she gets $25,000. Two girls were picked from the audience & Kong basically squashed them both & afterwards, did the same to Eric Young's special guest...Elvis. Unless your a heavy fan of Kong being a female version of "WCW's Vader" & killing people in the ring, skip this.




Rating: 1/2*




The Jay Lethal/So Cal Val Wedding

Holy SummerSlam '91 Batman! Seriously, this entire storyline has been done very similar to the Randy/Liz storyline from the proposal, "Oh Yeah!" acceptance by Val, and even Lethal dressing in the same type of outfit Savage did at the SummerSlam wedding. However, anyone who watched TNA over the past couple of months (including those who edit the video packages together) knew what was coming when the best man Sonjay Dutt stopped the wedding & turned heel on Lethal before getting his own beating by the groomsmen. The heel turn was great but for him to get laid out by the legends right afterwards killed it & turned this turned into a wrestlecrap segment. At least you got to see old school legends & names from the past like Kamala, Jake "The Snake" Roberts (complete with snake), Koko B. Ware, and George "The Animal" Steele who of course munched on his favorite snack...the turnbuckle.




5. Kurt Angle vs AJ Styles

This is without a doubt one of the best matches of this year as these two put on one hell of a wrestling match & their best PPV inring performance in months. They worked a great mat based match which is where Kurt is at his best & what Styles is very underrated at as well. Match of the night here & with everything that happened towards the end with Karen & Tomko afterwards, you will see a rematch & the feud will continue which nobody will mind one bit after seeing this match. Match of the night, no questions asked.




Rating: ****1/2




6. King Of The Mountain Match: TNA Champion Samoa Joe vs Christian Cage vs Rhino vs Robert Roode vs Booker T w/Kevin Nash As The Special Enforcer

Before I get started, I have to note how good each video package & interview was with each competitor throughout the entire night that are worth checking out as it heavily put over the main event & put over each person as not only wanting to win the match & become champion but also having something to prove as well.
Now for those who never seen a the King Of The Mountain match before, it's a ladder match in reverse with alot of stipulations. To win the match, you have to use the ladder hang the belt instead of using the ladder to pull it down like a normal ladder match. However before you can hang the belt, you have to qualify to do it by scoring a pinfall/submission over one of the other competitors...and the person who loses that fall goes into a penality box for 2 mins. Yeah, sounds real gimmicky but when you watch it come together...it's a real easy match to follow. Overall, this was more like a 5 way dance as oppossed to the previous KOTM matches that came off like a ladder match as there wasn't as many spots as the previous ones & there wasn't much of a story told here as everyone, with the exception of Booker T, qualified towards the end of the match before the finish happened with Samoa Joe becoming the first champion to retain his championship in the KOTM match. This match was a solid performance but didn't feel like a main event & should have switched places with the Angle/Styles match.




Rating: ***1/4




Overall Rating: 7/10

In the end, this was TNA's best PPV in a very long time as they fixed some of the problems that were making their PPV's suffer in by using the mentality of QUAILTY OVER QUANITY which they forgot when booking Lockdown & Sacrifice. Eventhough there was only 5 matches on here (6 if you want to count that Awesome Kong segment), they didn't overload the card by using the entire roster in bad pointless gimmick matches that just waste time & take time away from the other more important matches on the card which makes entire the PPV suffer as a whole. In the end, this PPV is a straight 4 star event (no being nice & rounding the rating up) as there wasn't a bad match on here & each one was given enough time. The Awesome Kong challenge & Wedding segments were the only real bad notes of this PPV so this is one event I do recommend for a viewing.

The problem with the PPVs from Slammiversary 2005 to Unbreakable 2005 is that TNA wasn't on TV (remember when they broadcasted Impact on the net. Ugh) So no matter they did, it just seemed so "Indy fed-ish" as my friend called it.

However, there is some damn good stuff on those PPVS. No Surrender 2005 is one of their best all around shows in terms of wrestling and Lynn vs. Waltman from Sacrifice & The Unbreakable X Title Match were two of the best matches of the year.

No Surrender 05 was the first TNA PPV I ever watched live, and is one of the best all around shows in TNA history IMO.

Abyss/Raven, Joe/Sabin, Styles/Waltman, and Daniels/Petey are all atleast ***3/4 IMO.

Like I said before....TNA's best string of PPV is the second half of '05. The X-Division was the shit and Jarret was gettin so much heat it was incredible.

It pisses me off so much the fact that Slammiversary could've been so much better with Lethal/Dutt and a X-Cup preview match.

Also, about No Surrender, does anyone remember what were the other options they had to face Daniels at the ppv? I think one of them was Roderick but I'm not sure

Sacrifice 2007


Match 1: X-Title: Chris Sabin (c) vs Sonjay Dutt vs Jay Lethal
Tremendous Opener, and tons of cool spots. Sonjay was real star
Rating - ***3/4

Match 2: Robert Roode vs Jeff Jarrett
The heat for the match was really off the charts and this is the match that made Roode IMO.
Rating - ***1/4

Match 3: Christopher Daniels vs Rhino
Disappointing match, but Daniels proved why he is a ring general by dominating Rhino with smart strategy by attacking Rhino's injured arm. Finish was weak too, since they were building Daniels to a huge feud with Sting. I'm really pissed where this headed to because this was Daniels' last meaningful win
Rating - **


Match 4: Basham & Damaja vs VKM

Skip
Rating - DUD

Match 5: Texas Death: James Storm vs Chris Harris
Absolute show stealer. When was the last time you heard AJ Syles vs Samoa Joe wasn't the MOTN? Sick innovative spots and lot of blood and an epic ending to an epic feud. Both men were looked like superstars in this match, but TNA really screwed the huge push of Storm by feuding him with Black Reign, while Storm continues his nice slow push by improving his personality
Rating: ****1/2

Match 6: Alex Shelley vs Tiger Mask vs Senshi vs Jerry Lynn
Fast paced match with cool spots like Butterfly Superplex and sunset flip-German combo.
Rating: ***1/2

Match 7: NWA Tag Titles: Team 3D(c) vs LAX vs Steiner & Tomko
Surprisingly good. Steiner still got it. Stiff as hell match and it also showed that 3D's act has gotten stale with the fans.
Rating: ***

Match 8: AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe

Probably the worst PPV match between the two, but it was very good too. Just shows you how great these two guys are. AJ surprisngly dominated Joe for most of the match. BUt the finish was just out of nowhere since Joe hasnt used the Crossface Suplex since
Rating: ***1/2

Match 9: NWA World Title: Christian Cage (c) vs Sting vs Kurt Angle
Another good match with good phsyocology by Angle. Finish was absolute Russo and a bad ending to a great ppv
Rating: ***1/2


Conclusion: AWESOME PPV. It has everything. It has two spotfests, two technical matches (AJ/Joe, Daniels/Rhino), 3 Very good title matches, a match that had incredible crowd heat and a match that this PPV a must watch. Top to bottom, the best PPV of 2007 and quite simply the best in Russo's charge.
