2007's Best Of The Best For TNA
D.P. | California | 02/07/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD set is the best of TNA throughout 2007, based off their Year End Voting Awards through the TNA website. Kurt Angle, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Booker T, Christian Cage, and others will give their comments on various subjects along with reliving various moments like Gail Kim being the first Knockouts/Womens Champion & Booker T's arrival to TNA. Along with all of this are the top seven matches "Match Of The Year" candidates.
TNA Champion Kurt Angle vs. Sting - Before the match, the reception Sting got in the town that made him famous (Atlanta...home of WCW/NWA) was one of the biggest pops I've heard in recent memory. The match started off slow but went into a good match between these two with Kurt pulling off an sick looking & impressive 450 off the top rope into a kneedrop at one point. Both Karen Angle & Kevin Nash (but you knew that was coming based off the skits all night) got involved in the end but it didn't take away the match between these two as Sting won & once again walked away from Bound For Glory as a champion.
(Bound For Glory)
Ultimate X Match: LAX vs. XXX - This was an awesome opener as the Ultimate X match usually always delievers when it comes to crazy spots. Moments to look out for were Elix Skipper doing a cross bodyblock off the top of the structure onto Hernandez, Skipper getting a neckbreaker from the top of the ropes, and Senshi doing the "Warriors Way" double stomp onto Hernandez who was hanging from the tree of woe at that time. Great opener.
(Bound For Glory)
Elevation X: Rhino vs. AJ Styles - Usually, scaffold matches are just people punching & kicking each other back & forth on a small platform while the fans are just waiting for someone to fall off. However, this one was unique in that they pulled off some moves that you wouldn't expect like Rhino goring AJ or Styles climbing inside the steel structure under the platforms. This is one of the very few scaffold matches where the match on the scaffold itself wasn't boring & had you just waiting for someone to drop.
Texas Death Match: Chris Harris vs. James Storm - Their first match at Lockdown was one of the worst matches this year...but after this one, you'll forget that match happened because this heavily made up for it & more. This was under old school Death Match rules where you had to score a pinfall & the loser has a 10 count to get to his feet or lose. They started brawling in the crowd right from the start and went back into the ring with both men heavily bleeding throughout the match & taking some punishment like both men going through tables, being hit with their finishing moves, dueling trash can lips, and even Jackie Moore & Gail Kim getting involved. The fans described this match perfectly..."This Is Awesome."
King Of The Mountain for the TNA Championship: Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe vs. Chris Harris vs. A.J. Styles vs. Christian Cage - For those new to TNA, the King Of The Mountain match is a ladder match in reverse with alot of stipulations. To win the match, you have to use the ladder hang the belt instead of using the ladder to pull it down like a normal ladder match. However before you can hang the belt, you have to qualify to do it by scoring a pinfall/submission over one of the other competitors...and the person who loses that fall goes into a penality box for 2 mins. Yeah, sounds real gimmicky but when you watch it come together...it's a real easy match to follow. Just like all of their multiman matches, this was just a wild brawl all over the place between all 5 men. The props at ringside come into play various times like Christian getting "crotched" between one of the steps of the ladder, A.J. Styles being tossed over the top rope onto Christian...who was laying down on the ladder at the time, and Styles being thrown off the top of the penality box through the announcers table (Mick Foley would be proud). In the end, Kurt Angle becomes the first TNA Champion.
Winner Takes All: TNA & "IWGP" Champion Kurt Angle vs. X Division & Tag Team Champion Samoa Joe - The story thoughout the whole match was Karen Angle & her new man (who was Trademarc, John Cena's cousin & the other guy off the "You Can't See Me" album) being a distraction for Angle thoughout the match...even during the entrance where he dropped one of his titles & looked like a defeated man. Joe & Angle delievered the match of the match night as they must put on wrestling clinics in the ring with this time having some comedic spots like Joe pulling down Angle's trunks. Again, match of the night for this PPV (but the weakest out of their TNA matches) here with an ending that resulted in Karen Angle becoming a full time character in TNA.
Ladder Match: Kaz vs. Christian Cage - You can quote me here...this was the best Ladder Match I've seen in TNA. We know what Christian Cage can do based on his WWE past but what Kaz was pulling off in this match as well made this the match of the night at Genesis. There were alot of moves done that were unbelievable such as Christian's frog splash onto the ladder from the top rope and the ladder doesn't give...which happened in the first five minutes. Another moment to look out for was Kaz missing a legdrop drop the top of the ladder onto another ladder. I don't want to give away everything that happened in the match but this was the match of the night & the best in Kaz's career since his return (and maybe even before as well) in TNA while Christian Cage gave a showstealing performance..no questions asked.
This is set up to be one of TNA's best DVD's yet as far as match quality that I would recommend picking up."
TNA's Best of the Best of 2007

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD set shows the best TNA matches of the year and the TNA end of the year awards voted by the TNA fans. The dvd is hosted by TNA's Barry Scott and he does the introduction of the matches and award winners.
1. Elevation X Match- Destination X
Rhino vs. AJ Styles
I wasn't really to fond of the way this match was set up. I didn't really found it all that good either but Rhino and Styles did their best to have a match on top of the Elevated X above the ring. It does give you suspense if you never seen this type of match before. Rhino does pull off his Gore on top of the Elevated X. 3/5

2. King of the Mountain for the TNA World Championshiop- Slammiversary
Samoa Joe vs. Kurt Angle vs. Chris Harris vs. Christian Cage vs. AJ Styles
Now the rules of this match are a little confusing if you read them but they do work out during the match. You must score a pin fall in order to qualify to climb the ladder to hang up the title belt and the loser of the fall must spend 2 minutes in a penalty box. The match was very good. There were some double team moves by Cage & Styles. Also some very good moves were excuted with the ladder. Angle manages to get use of his ankle lock on top of the ladder. Styles gets thrown through the announce table and the impact was just sick, it really looked like Styles broke his back. Awesome match. 5/5
Best TNA Tag Team of 2007
5) Team 3D
4) The Steiner Brothers
3) AJ Styles & Tomko
2) Latin American Xchange
1) Motor City Machineguns
3. All or Nothing for the TNA World, Tag Team, & X-Division Championship- Hard Justice
Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe
Another pretty good match between these two but I do think the Kurt & Karen thing took away a great deal from the match. It did seem like it dragged on in the beginning but it picked up. Some good submissions and more of a ground mat based wrestling match mixed in with some good high impact moves as well. Pretty good wrestling match and the whole Karen/Kurt thing took away from the match. 4.5/5
X-Division Superstar of 2007
5) Christopher Daniels
4) Alex Shelly
3) Chris Sabin
1) Balck Machismo Jay Lethal
4. Texas Death Match- Sacrifice
"Wildcat" Chris Harris vs. "Cowboy" James Storm
This match resembles TNA's version of a Last Man Standing Match but it was a very brutal and bloody match. It starts out in the crowd and some viscious shots were taken out there. Harris takes a brutal chair shot by Storm about midway in the match. There were some good table spots as well. Very brutal match. Good match. 5/5

4) Team 3D vs. the X-Division

5) Awesome Kong
4) Matt Morgan
3) Judas Mesias
1) Booker T
5. Ladder Match for the #1 Contendership- Genesis
Christian Cage vs. Kaz
This was by far the best ladder match in TNA history. Christian really upped his game in this ladder match, & I believed he wanted to show Edge, Michaels, Hardys, & others that he made the ladder match of what it is today and he certainly proved that in this match. Kaz was also great as well, he pulled off moves you rarely don't see in ladder matches these days. Pheonomenal Ladder match & the interference didn't hurt the match at all. 5/5

6. Ultimate X Match for the Tag Team #1 Contendership- Bound for Glory

This match opened up Bound for Glory back in October. This was a great opener. Just a really pheonomenal great match. Some good high flying moves. Skipper pulls off a cross body about 15 feet up from the ultimate x post. A great match. The crowd was really into this one. 5/5
TNA MVP of 2007
5) AJ Styles
3) Christian Cage
2) Kurt Angle
1) Samoa Joe
7) TNA World Championship- Bound for Glory
Kurt Angle vs. Sting
This was a great main event from Bound for Glory. Sting and Angle are great competitors and this was just a great match. It was a good ol' solid wrestling match and the interference didn't hurt the match one bit. A great match to say the least. A pure classic. 5/5
This was a great dvd. If yall aint used to the wrestling in TNA or yall missed a majority of TNA from 2007 then I recommend on picking this up. A solid dvd to add to your collection.
