When did you last 'mark out' when watching TNA programming?
My answer would definitely be Austin Aries' World Title win at Destination X. I loved the PPV in general and then Aries and Roode pulled such an awesome match out of the bag - the pyschology was fantastic. I didn't see Aries winning at all but was really rooting for him. Roode hit with his title belt and in my mind at the time looked certain to win (Roode/Storm BFG for the title as almost everyone predicted) and when he kicked out of that pin I legit marked out. Went on to win in the style he did as we all know and I loved that moment. Pure awesome babyface win to a great wrestler both in the ring and on the mic. Even the IZ were loud. Sheer brilliance.

Aries winning for sure. It's the only time I recall even Tenay being excited this year. I totally never saw it coming either which made it all the better when he dropped the brainbuster. It's a shame his reign was pretty average but the win itself was definitely
Agreed on Aries title win. It was very unexpected ending to a great match, and it showed that management were listening to the fans, and had the guts to go for it. Even though his reign was a little underwhelming I think it did a good enough job establishing Aries as a main eventer.
A big one was Aries winning at Destination X and a small one was when AA successfully picked up the armbreaker guy from Ace's and Eights. I thought he wouldnt be able to do that, guy was bigger than Joe and Bully.
