BARBED WIRE MASSACRE
D.P. | California | 01/25/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Turning Point 2005 was another good showing of PPV's from Total Non-Stop Action as this PPV had a mix of things for everyone's taste.
Barbed Wire Massacre: Sabu vs. Abyss - This match was just sick as you see moments like Sabu getting dropped on his neck into the barbed wire and Abyss squished inbetween two barbed wire boards. It's not as distubring as Sabu's last two barbed wire matches (Hardcore Homecoming & vs. Terry Funk) but it still leaves an impression.
Matt Bentley & Austin Aries vs. Alex Shelley & Roderick Strong - You can't go wrong with an X division tag team match & this is no exception as they're always right on the money.
Raven vs. Chris K. (Kanyon) - Again, just another wrestling match from Raven that really got dull at times with the inring storytelling from Raven & didn't do a good job of following up the previous matches.
4Life Kru vs. Team Canada - This match was just a backdrop to the big story of Konnan's heel turn & the breakup of the Kru which was being set up for months.
Basebrawl: Sonjay Dutt, Chris Sabin, Dale Torborg (a.k.a. The Demon from WCW) w/White Sox member AJ Pierzynski vs. Diamonds In The Rough - The match itself was good as you can't miss with Sabin & Dutt while the Diamonds are very underrated wrestlers. Bobby Heenan returns to commentary & he didn't miss a step.
Christian Cage vs. Monty Brown - This was better than their rematch at Destination X months later as Christian was able to work with Monty (which is no secret that he's limited in what he can do in the ring) to bring forth a great match.
Tables Match: AMW vs. Team 3D - Eventhough the DVD case says this was a title match, it wasn't. This was the best showing between these two teams as they brawled & wrestled while coming up with creative ways to set up & move the tables during the match.
X Division Champion AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe - It's no secret that the series between these two & Christopher Daniels were the talk of professional wrestling for a year & this match was no exception. AJ had a chunk of his lip busted open & still fought hard against Samoa Joe. The match of the night no questions asked.
NWA Champion Jeff Jarrett vs. Rhino - This match was the sterotypical formula of a Jarrett match. Wrestling, a big brawl throughout the arena, and an overload of outside interference. The match with the wrestling & brawling was actually very well but the match took a turn for the worst when ALL members of Team Canada kept interfearing in the end to cost Rhino the match. However, the big suprize here at the end was the tease of Sting coming to TNA with his bat, coat, and boots left in the middle of the ring.
Bottom line is that again, there wasn't a bad match here & it had something for everyone so I highly recommend this PPV from TNA.
