Final Destination 2012 thoughts
Storm vs Kaz: This match was unnecessary and didn't need to be on the card. Was an impact quality match which could have been seen for free. *1/2
RVD vs King: Horrible match, very sloppy especially from RVD. RVD is one of my favourite wrestlers of all time but he is clearly coasting and is there for the pay check. Unmotivated. This is probably the worst ive ever seen him and is a shell of his former show stealing self. Sad to watch. *3/4
Hernadez and Chavo vs Ryan and Morgan:Mediocre tag team match. Again, was impact quality. Nothing much to say really, boring to watch. **
Bully vs Aries: Very good match. Great chemistry between these two and was telling a great story throughout the match. The finish however was bad with the Brooke Hogan soap opera crap (aka get that bitch off my tv screen) and Hogan knows best tripe. Execution of it was bad as well and looked weak with Aries rolling up Bully the way he did. Very good match, bad finish. *** 1/2
Mickie James vs Tara: An okay knockouts match. They've done better matches together. Didn't like the finish, fell flat for me. **1/4
Aces and Eights vs Team Angle:Pretty good match for what it was. Smart move to let Angle and Joe do the heavy lifting to mask the greenness of Garrett and Brisco. From a booking perspective however this was nonsensical. So much for making Aces and Eights a credible threat by having them get beat right off the bat and derailing their momentum. Don't get that booking decision at all. **3/4
AJ Styles vs Christopher Daniels: Typically great match from both these men. All of their matches together have been great (well except that dreadful I Quit Match) so its no surprise. Doesn't top their last man standing match from these guys this year though. Loved the finish with Daniels beating AJ with his own finishing move. Rub's more salt in the wound of AJ Styles. I really like this storyline they are going with for AJ who has been doing a great job with it as well. I'm very intrigued by AJ Styles character right now and where its going. Best part about TNA at the moment. Great match. ****
Hardy vs Roode: Very good main event that delivered. This could have been even better but it got cut short when it was just about to hit that next level. I have a problem with the finish of the match but its not Hardy using the twist of fate to win. Unlike some I have no problem with it as its Hardy's 2nd finisher and it caught Roode by a surprise. What I have a problem with is is what went down with Aces and Eights at the end. Not only was it really predictable that they would turn on Roode they pretty much repeated what they did with Roode a few months back when Roode accused Storm being a part of the aces and eights. It was the exact same twist with the exact same person. So essentially, this storyline in some ways is not progressing at all. That along with Aces and Eights losing their match at the PPV, its becoming hard to take them seriously as a threat. Match was very good. *** 1/2
Overall, decent but disappointing PPV. Expected more. 6.75/10
This is an alarm clock, so wake up wake up now.
