Results and Rating:
Abyss def. Black Reign: Awesome, hardcore match. Had some awesome moments such as a chokeslam off the stage, a pedigree type move to Abyss onto a bunch of rat traps, the rat going down James Mitchell’s shirt. Cool ending, then after the match Rellik debuted by attacking Abyss with Black Reign. They put him onto this box thing and then threw him off the stage, it was awesome. I know this is higher than most people would give it, but I love hardcore matches: 9/10.
Motorcity Machine Guns def. Team 3D: Loved the video package in the beginning, especially when Bully Ray said hes taken craps bigger than the guys in the X-Division. I definitely liked the other matches from this feud better, especially the one that involved Jay Lethal and Johnny Devine, but this was still a pretty good match. The ending was easily the best part of the match. 6.5/10.
Gail Kim def. Angel Williams, ODB, Roxxi Laveaux: Good knockouts match. Crazy that 7 years later Gail is still at the top of the division. After the match Awesome Kong came out. 7/10
Jay Lethal def. Sonjay Dutt: Before I review the match I just want to say how much I loved Lethal’s Black Machismo gimmick with SoCal Val. Really good and fast paced match. After the match Team 3D attacked Lethal and Dutt. Props to SoCal Val for her acting when Bubba backed her into the corner. Bubba then got on the mic and said MCMG cheated so the whole division is going to pay, and they are “holding the X-Division title hostage.” 8.5/10
Steiners vs Styles/Tomko: Decent match, was kinda boring. The ending pissed me off, I was actually flipping off my screen. Steiners pretty much had the win, ref went down, Styles hit Rick with a chair and pinned him. 6.5/10
Samoa Joe def. Bobby Roode: Good match, mid match Ms. Brooks just collapsed ringside. 8.5/10.
Kaz def. Christian Cage: This match was AMAZING! EASILY match of the night. 10/10.
Nash and Angle vs Sting and Booker T: Loved the brawl between Sharmell and Karen. I didn’t like the outcome but decent match. A little disappointing looking back that they made Booker coming in and he ended up having in my opinion one of the most forgettable TNA runs out of all the ex-WWE guys they had in that time period. 8/10
Overall Rating: 8/10. Not perfect by any stretch, but I give it an 8 cause of the Shop of Horrors, Ladder, and main event.
