(2 out of 5 stars)
"Tables Match: Jay Lethal & Motor City Machine Guns vs. Team 3D & Johnny Devine - Maybe it's because all of the previous Team 3D/Tables matches I've seen in TNA were better in comparison but this match was just really decent to me. There were a couple of missed camera shots of some spots like the Guns stereo dives onto Team 3D outside the ring & it seemed like the crowd wasn't popping for all the spots that they used to. The finish was completely lame (just like the first time it was done at F. Resolution 2006) as Lethal drove Devine though the last table only for the referee (who was down) to miss it so Team 3D attacks & moves Devine on top.
Angelina Love & Velvet Sky vs. O.D.B. & Roxxi - Boy, O.D.B. was just over with the crowd from the start. Despite some of the "WWE divas" elements like the spanking between the knockouts & trying to get the referee involved, this was another match that was just decent & nothing really memorable about it.
Eric Young vs. James Storm - Unlike the previous PPV & the following PPV, this is an actual match & not a bunch of backstage segments involving them drinking beer. A solid encounter here as Young's arm was worked on & sold thoughtout the encounter while Eric actually stayed away from his "goofy" image & seemed like he was looking for revenge.
Feast Or Fired Match - The rules were that there were a different case set up on a pole in 4 corners and the match ends when all four cases are taken down. If you can get past Kip James outfit that looks like he stole from Mickie James, this was one of those "all of the place" multiman brawls that TNA loves to do whenever they have battle royal/gauntlet matches. It was another match that was decent for what it was. But I will give some extra credit for Chris Harris who was the only one I noticed actually selling the fact that one of those cases would get him fired.
As a side note, there were a couple of swerves & storyline twist the following weeks revolving around the cases but here are the results. B.G. has the tag title shot, Scott Steiner has the X Division Title shot, Petey Williams won the World Title shot, and Christopher Daniels (who beat Senshi to win his case) had the pink slip & was "fired"
Womens Champion Gail Kim vs. Awesome Kong - The story here was David vs. Goliath...except both of them are women as this was one of those "put a storyline over" matches. Kong for the most part dominated Gail Kim who was able to get in a few shots here & there with working on Kong's arm in the beginning & then taking to the air later in the match starting to gain some momentum before Kong recovered & just beat Kim down & refused to stop causing the DQ. The aftermath with Kong beating up the babyface knockouts, the referee, and powerbombing Gail on the chair heavily sold the fact that Kong is a monster. The result was to set up a rematch which I'm sure a majority of people wouldn't mind.
Match Of 1,000 Tacks: Abyss & Raven vs. Black Reign & Rellik - With Rhino injured, Raven returns once again in his enviroment. In a nutshell here, it's the same thing you see in every Abyss hardcore match like you've seen for the past year. There was blood, there was brawling, and just based off the name alone...you saw men getting slammed on thumbtacks. However, one spot that got my attention was when Rellik put tacks into Raven's mouth & proceeded to throw forearms into his mouth...that was sick.
Booker T & Kaz vs. Christian Cage & Robert Roode - My favorite match of the night as it was a real competitve back & forth match as all four men gave a great effort here even down to the little things like Roode & Cage doing the "heel" fake tags in & out and Kaz fighting to get to Booker T for the tag at one point in the match.
As a side note, if they were trying to get over the fact that the woman stalking Robert Roode was just a "fan" then they didn't need to put a spotlight on her throughout the match.
Samoa Joe, Kevin Nash, Eric Young vs. Kurt Angle, A.J. Styles, Tomko - The whole story here was that this was suppost to be the Outsiders reunion (which TNA did close to 3 years earlier at the first Turning Point for those trivia fans) but Scott Hall no showed the event causing Samoa Joe to perform a "shoot" promo on Hall's no show & throwing some "subliminal lines" at Nash before introducing Eric Young as the third man in the match. From there, the story of the match was the tension between Nash & Joe as each man would tag into the match through Eric Young and at the end, Joe wasn't in a hurry to save Nash from Angle's anklelock & even after the victory, Nash just walked away & didn't even stay to get his hand raised or celebrate the victory. This was one of those "put a storyline over" matches as the match was average in itself & the Angle Alliance & Young were just backdrop players for the issue between Nash & Joe.
In the end, you would have been disappointed with the "card subject to change" but since you already know what to expect here, this was a real below average TNA PPV where the most of the matches were passable & decent to just average at best. This was one of TNA's worst showings since No Surrender 2006 as there were really only 2 matches & a promo worth checking out here. If you are a TNA diehard & have around a few extra bucks you won't miss then go ahead but besides that, you aren't missing anything."
