Solid Undercard, Disappointing Main Events

"This PPV was the first PPV under the Vince Russo era & it surpassed the Bound For Glory event on so many levels. Storylines progressed, there were plenty of suprizes, and a main event worthy of the hype it recieved.
Preshow: Eric Young vs. Robert Roode - This was just a short match between the two in which Roode cheated in the end to win but the referee restarted the match after the fans told him he cheated in which Young pulled off a quick win & the crowd denied that Young cheated...when he did. This began the Ms. Brooks/Eric Young storyline which would go on for the next couple of months.
Voodoo Kin Mafia vs. Serotonin - This was just an opener for VKM to mock DX & being their "mission" against DX & Vince McMahon. Afterwards, it was revealed that Raven was the leader of the Serotonin group.
Jay Lethal & Sonjay Dutt vs. The Naturals - The Naturals were in full heel mode here and delievered a solid matchup with Lethal & Dutt. Good match overall.
X Division Champion Christopher Danials vs. Chris Sabin - Sabin was always one of the most underrated X division stars but now he's got a cocky personality to make him standout above others. This was one of the best matches of the night with solid inring work & not the "car crash" high spots that have sterotyped the X divison. The finish also helped further the Lynn/Sabin storyline as well & play a role later in the night as well with AJ Styles saving Daniels in this match.
Lance Hoyt & Ron Killings vs. Austin Starr & Alex Shelly - This was just a filler match to further the storyline of Shelley being jealous of Kevin Nash's favoritism towards Austin Starr which was apparent in the end when Shelley ended up losing the match trying to showoff for Nash. It's just said that Ron Killings & Lance Hoyt (who's very athletic for his size) were nothing more than a filler tag team to further a storyline between two other wrestlers.
AJ Styles vs. Christian Cage - It's disappointing that these two wouldn't go on for a longer fued after this because this match went really well. Second best match of the night as their different styles meshed well together. The ending of this match came when Daniels tried to save AJ like he did earlier in the night but it backfired which helped set up the AJ Styles/Rhino fued for the next upcoming months.
NWA World Tag Team Champions LAX vs. America's Most Wanted - Solid tag team match between the two teams but it was a little short to turn into something memorable & the bigger picture at the end of the match was Jim Cornette saying that LAX were stripped of the tag team titles to which the fans were very vocal about...in a negative way.
NWA World Heavyweight Champion Sting vs. Abyss - I was expecting to see Sting to do his usual stops throughout this match but Sting stepped it up in this match the way he should have at Bound For Glory. There was a mix of brawling & in the ring action before it went hardcore with Sting even landing shirtless on tacks harder & stiffer than than Ric Flair got it in ECW months earlier. However, when Sting absolutely loses his mind is when the match goes downhill. He beats Abyss down, hangs him & beats him with his bat before putting him through barbed-wire boards...all of which took a while to set up each spot. Sting ended up getting disqualified & Abyss wins the NWA Title due to a rule that has been around since TNA started up but people forgot about it because alot of the TNA title matches in recent years don't end with the champions getting disqualified or counted out. It's something that "traditional" wrestling fans don't like & don't agree with.
Kurt Angle vs Samoa Joe - The match was a disappointment in most people's eyes because they were expecting the type of dream match Angle had with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 21 in which they put on a 30 min. rollercoaster of a wrestling clinic. However, this heavily resembles Angle's WrestleMania 22 match in which it didn't go long (less than 15 mins.) but in that entire time, they went high impact & there wasn't a slow moment which left you wanting more as Joe's undefeated streak came to an end. The crowd was heavily into it & the aftermath guarenteed that you would get a rematch.
In the end, this PPV delievered quality matches & had a main event that that wasn't a wrestling clinic but an enjoyable intense rollercoaster of a match. I would recommend for a viewing."

"Just saw the DVD and this blows away Bound For Glory. Angle/Joe was not dissapointing at all, it lived up to the hype in my view. There were other gems on this PPV as well. Sabin/Daniels was one of the better X Division Matches of the year and Chrisitan/AJ had a really nice little match, they blended well together. I thought the feud with Rhyno was kind of random but after seeing this it makes sense. And Sting vs Abyss is being very slept on, awesome effort by both men, I thought it was a hard fought and very brutal match with a different ending that we don't normally see.
