Well, Old School got the W, because both were under contract at the time of the taping while neither Nese nor Cameron are.

The XScape isn't really confusing, but you're new to TNA, so I'll let you pass through. The match wasn't good though. Seriously, all these Gut Check baboons can fuck off. Shaw seems solid (ignoring his atrocious attire), but York and Silva...? Argh. It sucked, that Dorado and Puma were eliminated first, because they were the best guys in the match. I enjoyed Jimmy Rave's small moment and so did the (very small) male grown ups part of the crowd.

Chavo, Robbie, Park. Designed to piss me off, or what? Not really a DUD but useless filler.

Loved both tag matches. Really enjoyable basic tag team wrestling with the spots by the face teams and nice work by the heel teams. Both ***+ for me.

Ultimate X was good. Must have been the best match of this kind since 2009. Is it just me or does Rubix look really odd? The long neck and the small skull. Weird. I like the guy, so no offence.

RVD vs. Lynn was O.K., but their best TNA match remains Full Metal Mayhem from BfG 2011.

Joe vs. Aries was kinda dissapointing. Not bad at all, but the mark crowd sucked all the life out of this match. Horrible.

I really enjoyed the TNA X-Travaganza PPV, a great show from top to bottom for the most part my only complaint is I would have liked to of seen Jerry Lynn go over in his match with Rob Van Dam.

The show was amazing but I agree with everyone when I say the Xscape match was garbage. The moment someone got in- BOOM they were out of the match. But everything else was solid-great.

For people moaning about the PPV format and how these PPV's are "pointless" and "bad for business" there is a reason for them, from what I know TNA have to do 12 PPV's a year due to international contracts, they are expected by the likes of challenge TV to deliver 12 PPV events a year to air on television.

I love the idea of One night only. I just dont think its for ppv. Like you said they still have to deliver 12 ppv. Yet Dixie wanted to change the concept as soon as she could regardless. Only negative is the fact they feel big league now being on the road. Yet these events are still back in the impact zone.

Im thinking as soon as she can probably next year. These events will be on tv and change into a live thing. Then the idea will sell for sure.

That Xscape match was terrible. I skipped thru the Chavo/Robbie E/Park nonsense because i hate everyone involved in that match and I knew it would suck. The rest was decent. Maybe its just me but the Ultimate X match wasnt very good. It wasnt bad it just wasnt very exciting.

Side note: Taz was the worst I ever heard him. I almost have to mute the show cuz he was so annoying. After watching this show I have no doubt he's the worst commentator in the business. He makes Lawler sound like Jim Ross

I felt underwhelmed by the show. It wasn't necessarily bad, it just felt flat at times. Perhaps it was the commentary and poor crowd I don't know. None the of the matches were great, but most were good to very good. RVD/Jerry Lynn was easily the best match of the night.

Xscape - ** - This match was a mess.
Who did well: Perkins, Shaw, Rave.
Who looked like shit: Christian York (he's terrible...), Lince (typical Dorado aka sloppy fuck), Matt B.(good worker, terrible shape).
Silva was just... there.

New School vs Old school - ***+ - I really want to give this a better rating, but it was WAY too short. Another minus - I HATE Sabian's moveset. You're a tough guy from Philly and your moves are a bunch of vanilla dropkicks and dives. Nothing unique and nothing that fits his character at all.
Everything else about this match was very enjoyable. The whole show needed some stories pretty badly, but at least this match gave it to us. A simple story, 2 simple promos, 4 fine-good workers and... I care about your match, TNA. Kash stiffing the shit out of rookes was amazing. New school did their X Division stuff. Douglas was alright but he/the match needed more time. Oh well. Good for what it was.

E vs Chavo - Skipped.

Ultimate X - ***1/4 - It was good. No botches, some nice spots, everyone looked good, but... The match was pointless. I mean, extra pointless. It's not just a regular match, you "risk your life" in this gimmick so you can get that X, which represents... nothing. Good match with no heat whatsoever.

Kaz and Daniels promo - Good (what a shocker huh). Petey and Sonjay promo - Terrible and goofy as hell.
B.I. vs Petey and Sonjay - ***+ - Good match with a flat finsh. Kaz and Daniels doing their thing + Petey's return = The Impact Zone wasn't completely dead. Basic x division stuff. Everyone did their spots. Sonjay's comeback was exciting though. Dude was pretty fluent here.
Never hit the Canadian Destroyer on Kaz ever again pl0x. Or at least ask him to not sell it like THAT. Ugh.

RVD vs Lynn - *** - When people talk about Xtravaganza's crappy-ass crowd they usually mention Joe/Aries in those complaints and, tbh, I have no idea why. THIS is where the crowd is absolutely, 100% dead and it hurts the match. I'm not gonna say it hurts the match a lot though, 'cause it was your typical RVD/Lynn match with maybe 1 new sequence. An enjoyable lil spotfest, but that's about it.

Aries vs Joe - ***3/4+ - MOTN. The crowd wasn't very good at all, but The Zone wasn't bad enough during this match to hurt these guys' solid in-ring work. Seriously, what crowd will mark out over a leg-work? The semi-dead crowd was kinda fine in this case. Good wrestling, good leg-work, good selling and an alright finish. This was very enjoyable overall.
If you only know their TNA work and don't want to see the Slammiversary re-run, don't be afraid. This match is completely different from their Slammiversary stuff.

Overall - 7.5. Good show. If you want to see some decent-solid wrestling and 'send TNA a message', give them 15$. Ain't nothing wrong with that.

Joe vs Aries was a massive disappointment. The dead crowd had nothing to do with it either.
