TNA X-TRAVAGANZA Results: Breaking Down Best Matches from PPV Event

Patrick Clarke@@_Pat_ClarkeCorrespondent IApril 6, 2013


TNA's One Night Only pre-taped pay-per-view special kicked off on Friday night with X-TRAVAGANZA 2013, which did not disappoint as Austin Aries and Samoa Joe went back and forth in the main event following an emotional sendoff for legend Jerry Lynn.

Whether you love TNA or just wanted to see Lynn put a beating on Rob Van Dam one last time, Friday's slate of matches had something for you.

Here we'll take a look at the results and highlight the best matches from Friday's PPV action.


Rob Van Dam Tops Jerry Lynn in Final Meeting

Rob Van Dam vs. Jerry Lynn had it all for fans of TNA, as RVD came out with the win over his bitter rival in their much-anticipated finale, a No Disqualification match that had fans drooling in the lead-up to Friday's premiere.

The meeting marked the final one between these two wrestling legends, as Lynn has since retired. In a pre-taped PPV such as this one, Lynn's retirement proved to be a huge boost as fans were knocking down doors to catch Lynn in action for the final time.

The match, which was arguably the best of the seven on the PPV, was capped off by a Five-Star Frog Splash from RVD and then a standing ovation from the Impact roster for Lynn, who will definitely be revered for his memorable run-ins with RVD.


Austin Aries Takes Down Samoa Joe in Main Event

Two of TNA's best X Division champions, Austin Aries and Samoa Joe, went head to head in the main event of this April's PPV, but it was Aries emerging with the win as many expected.

It wasn't the instant classic some thought it would be, but there was plenty of solid back-and-forth action between the two recognizable faces, as the bout lasted nearly 19 minutes. Although it lacked the excitement of the match that preceded it considering Lynn's long-running feud with RVD and his recent retirement, it definitely lived up.

There's certainly potential for these two to meet up again in the future with perhaps more at stake and deliver a more thrilling main event.
