Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Watched two matches in full from One Night Only: Xtravaganza, skimmed through the rest. The crowd was pretty meh for the majority of what I saw.

Old School vs. New School tag was pretty fun. Did a good job of showcasing Nese & Sabian, just thought the finish was a little rushed. ***

Aries vs. Joe was a fucking chore to watch. Why did they work this at half speed? Nothing remotely close their Slammiversary match. ** I guess.

Yep. Aries vs Joe was kind of crap, tbhayley. I was dying for it to finish.

I loved the Williams/Kash vs Nese/Sabian tag.

It's like they have these all X Divison only shows and they decide to work the main event slow as fuck. i.e. AJ/Daniels from 2011. Absolutely nothing about Aries/Joe screamed excitement or X Divison for that matter.

Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

All I can think of is they wanted to change it up from where their last match on PPV was worked. Instead of being a blitzkrieg of excitement it turned into a dull excuse for a rematch. Stand by my point of calling it the worst match they ever worked vs each other.

Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I still want to know why Red wasn't there, he was one of my favorite parts of the X-Division back in the day. I asked him about it for his next Q&A video so let's see if he answers.

They could spin off the tag team after Kenny cashes in his shot and loses due to interference, Kenny goes face and looks for help to go up against them. I guess you could plug Aries in there if Titus doesn't become available in the next two months. I still think we have yet to see the tip of the iceberg with both D.O.C./Knux and Petey/Sonjay. They should have Sabin have a mega long TV championship run to test him out in that upper mid card and then have him eventually do a Gargano-esque turn and be the asshole heel.
Good to know.

Ha, you know I honestly forgot about King & Aries being in the same company together. Didn't even dawn on me when it should have long ago given their old faction in ROH. If Titus popped up out of the blue and all three were in the same place again, it would be a bit of a culture shock - for lack of a better term - to see the group rekindled. I wouldn't object. Aries is doing exactly what he did in ROH circa '09 - '10 ever since he returned. Placing the grouping in a different environment would be fun. Of course this is all clearly massive hypothetical. I don't see Rhett leaving anytime soon for TNA.

I won't even play the hypothetical card with Sabin. Said that many times. I'll wait and see when he returns to know what is in store for his career.

Granted I haven't watched it since attending, but I don't know if I'd call it their worst. I enjoyed it more than their match from Escape From New York in 05. Certainly not as much as their Third Anniversary Celebration P3/Final Battle 04 matches.

I agree with what someone said about that it should have been worked at a faster pace and the AJ/Daniels DX 2011 comparison was pretty fair.

I also feel like if there were anything really at stake for the match + it wasn't the last match at the end of a long day of tapings between the tag tournament + X-Travaganza, the crowd would have been more into it.

Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

TNA iMPACT 2010/6/3:

Sting vs Samoa Joe - N/R

AJ Styles vs Kazarian vs Jay Lethal - **1/4

Jeff Hardy vs James Storm - **3/4

Robert Roode vs Mr. Anderson - **

Abyss and Rob Terry vs Desmond Wolfe and Orlando Jordan - Skipped.

Sting vs Matt Morgan vs Rob Van Dam vs Samoa Joe - **


The opening segment with Sting was good, it's refresing seeing him cutting a promo in the ring alone. Styles vs Kazarian vs Lethal was more angle advancement than a fast-paced long match that you'd expect, this Kaz/Styles/Flair is gold so far, they could've been the Aries/Roode of 2010. The Angle/Flair promo after the match was good. The build-up for Beer Money vs Charismatic Assholes (lol I'm pretty sure it wasn't their offical name but whatever) was awesome. Absolutely loved their segment, Hardy/Storm was good and even if I wasn't a fan of Roode/Anderson it's still had a nice ending to add heat to the feud. The Main Event was fine but short as always. Hernandez returned during the match and distracted Morgan who got pinned by RVD. Overall fun episode with very good storyline progression.

I wonder how much it would take to sway Rhett from ROH tbh. Doubt they're paying him a lot. He's improved as a worker without Kenny though, not sure what they would push their team as if Joey Ryan's doing the sleazy gimmick on TV.

Re: Official TNA DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Rhett has been pretty bad as single wrestler. His promos are embarrassing and just as in-ring worker he isn't good and always looks awkward. When he's in a stable or tag team he's at his best.
