"Destination X was a great ppv in 2007 from TNA. Most of all the matches are great and they all are pretty watchable. This ppv also ended the Sting and Abyss rivalry which took place in a brutal Last Rite's Match. Nearly a 5 Star ppv.
1. Ghetto Street Brawl
Latin American Xchange vs. Team 3D
Pheonomenal opener but I didn't understand why the titles weren't on the line here, but a surperb opening nevertheless. The teams fought all over the building, Team 3D even let some fans get some shots in on LAX. It turned out into an all out riot towards the end of the match with like 20 guys coming out and just fighting the holy hell out of each other. Great opening. Great hardcore action here. Shelly interfers and screws Team 3D. 4.5/5
2. Mixed Tag Team Bull Rope Match
James Storm & Miss Jackie vs. Petey Williams & Gail Kim
This bull rope match was quite interesting. Storm & Jackie gets some cheat shots in the beginning but soon after the tables are turned into Williams & Kim favor. Some pretty good comedic spots as well. The knockouts really dishes out some punishment to each other in this match, I really enjoyed watching this one. 3.5/5
3. Crossface Chicken Wing Match
Austin Starr vs. Senshi
Decent match here but you already know how the match was going to end, you had to win with Backlund's Crossface Chicken Wing in order to win which really didnt gave the the match any suspense but it was sill a pretty good x-division match up. 3.5/5
4. Voodo Kin Mafia vs. The Heartbreakers w/ Christy Hemme
Before the match started, VKM & Christy had a little comedic skit before the match which was a little funny, the BINGO thing was kind of stupid but the match wasn't all that bad. VKM really made this match. Some pretty nice reversals and a few impact moves. Christy interfered but she got hers. Nice tag match. 3/5
5. 2 out of 3 Falls Match for the X-Division Championship
Chris Sabin vs. Jerry Lynn
Terrific match, I was really impressed with Lynns endurance, he can really go out there and still put on a 5 star match. Some great wrestling moves were executed, some great counters and some great x-division action. The falls came at pretty good times as well and this was a great one on one confrontation. Some good outside ring action as well in the beginning. The interference by Daniels didn't hurt the match at all. Great x-division match up. 5/5
6. Elevation X
Rhino vs. AJ Styles
I wasn't really too fond of this match. It was kind of boring to me. But if yall haven't seen this type of match before, it does give you suspense of that someone will actually fall from the Elevated X 20 feet above the ring. Rhino is also able to pull off his Gore on Styles on top of the X but I wasn't really amused by this match. 2.5/5
7. Kurt Angle vs. Scott Steiner
I was impressed by this match too. I thought Steiner wouldn't have been able to do anything because hes so freaking big but he really shocked me. Steiner pulls off some good moves and even applying the olympic slam on Angle which it looked like it broke Angle's neck. The match was more of a brawl than anything but some wrestling moves were used as well. You even get some blood from Steiner. Pretty good match. I enjoyed watching this one too. 4.5/5
8. Last Rites Match
Sting vs. Abyss
This was TNA's version of a casket match. It got brutal at times as well. Abyss and Sting took some brutal shots in this one. Sting takes a viscious shot with the candlestick holder to head while trying to stinger splash Abyss. Sting also takes a hard chokeslam on top of the casket. Pretty violent match but not all that gory or anything of that nature but it was some/what violent. The fans did chant BORING at times but the match wasn't really boring at all. 4/5
9. NWA World Championship
Christian Cage vs. Samoa Joe
Pheononemal main event. Cage takes some viscious leg shots in this one by Joe. Some nice reversals and counters in this one. Good outside ring action as well. Cage takes a sickening slam on the floor, then gets taken to the crowd. Some great wrestling and some great brawling. Just some good hard shots in this one mixed in with some nice impacts moves too. Joe even utilizes the crippler crossface in this one which was great to see. Pheonomenal main event. It had a classic end as well. 5/5
Destination X was great. This is a great dvd to add to you collection This is one I defiantly on recommend on getting. Great TNA ppv."
X-cellent Show From TNA

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Ghetto Brawl: Team 3D vs. L.A.X. - This was your typical TNA weapons brawl that went all over the arena filled with trashcans, cookie trays, and everything except the kitchen sink. It was spiced up with some cameos from former LAX member Machete, Johnny Rotz, Alex Shelley, along with large group of both "Latino nation" members & "Devon's brothers from Brooklyn." Overall, it was exactly what the match title is...a brawl & it was enjoyable. Also during this match, listen for Don West's line of "The only person we're missing is Pacman Jones." How ironic is that line months later?
Double Bullrope Match: Petey Williams & Gail Kim vs. James Storm & Jackie Moore - Thankfully, they didn't use the "touch four (or in this case, six) turnbuckles" rule that usually makes bullrope/strap matches horrible. The girls were just outside for the most part beating the hell out of each other with Gail having Jackie tied to the post & chopping the hell out of him while Storm & Williams fought in the ring. One comedic moment to look out for was when Storm tied Williams' feet to the rope & went for a pinfall but the ref wouldn't count it because...well, his feet were on the ropes. The match was enjoyable for what it was.
Crossface Chicken Wing Match: Senshi vs. Austin Starr - Another good encounter here as Senshi & Starr both work groundbased wrestling instead of the highspots style so it was a good clash. Bob Backlund's is around during the match but he doesn't distract from the match. The only downfall I could see is that you know how the match is going to end, again...it's a good encounter & showcasing of the X division.
VKM vs. Heartbreakers - The match was just like the prematch promo & entire fued with Christy Hemme, it was a crap. Skip it.
2 Out Of 3 Falls Match: X Division Champion Chris Sabin vs. Jerry Lynn - Unfortunally, something happened in the crowd during this match that seemed to distract from this match as Lynn, Sabin, and the referee even looked over & got distracted from their match in the beginning. I hate to be repetative but this was a good showing of what the X division is capable of with those two doing some great mat wrestling, high flyin', high impact moves, and quite a few near falls. Great encounter with two men who don't disappoint in the ring with each other.
Elevation X Match: Rhino vs. A.J. 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.
Kurt Angle vs. Scott Steiner - This was a high impact match in the sense that they used more power stiff-like moves like than anything else. Strong irish whips, suplexes, and stiff looking clotheslines summerize this match in a nutshell. If you can get past the very weak ending, it's a good match for the standards of a Scott Steiner match.
Last Rites Match: Sting vs. Abyss - This was a glorified casket match but the catch is that the casket is lowered from the ceiling (complete with special lighting & smoke as it's lowered) and you must put your opponent in it & have it raised back up to the ceiling. With fake tombstones & electic candelabras surrounding the ring, this was a wrestlecrap match in the making right alongside WWE's Kennell From Hell & WCW's Chamber Of Horrors. I'll give it some credit as Sting took a chokeslam right ontop of the casket that dented the top of it (which got the only positive reaction from the crowd thoughout the whole match) along with being busted open & bled buckets like I haven't seen for as long as I can remember...including the WCW days. This honestly was just one of those enjoyable trainwrecks...don't know how else to put it.
NWA Champion Christian Cage vs. Samoa Joe - With the exception of the Kurt Angle series, Joe's first World Title match saw him & Christian deliver the wrestling clinic that we haven't seen since his X division days. Back & forth action, counter for counter, plenty of nearfalls, and really just kept you on the edge of your set with the ending having you begging for a rematch. This was a definate TNA Match of the year canidate and match of the night.
(DVD Bonus Match) Ladder Match: Jerry Lynn vs. Jay Lethal vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Austin Starr vs. Senshi - This was from Impact and honestly, it wasn't much past a 5-6 min. spotfest between all 5 men as the ladder didn't come into play until the last two minutes. The match was too short to have anything to note.
(DVD Bonus Match) Gauntlet for the Gold Battle Royal: This was a gauntlet battle royal (Royal Rumble style) with Samoa Joe winning & gaining his title shot. There really isn't anything noteworthy here as well.
Overall, most of the wrestling & gimmick matches delievered as the card was solid (not perfect) from top to bottom. As another reviewer said, this isn't TNA's best effort but it's far from their worst so I recommend."
