Segment 1) Styles/RVD/Hardy/Hogan Promos

This was not a bad segment, TBH. I know people will say that its keeping the spotlight on older guys and not TNA originals, but at the end of the day, the World Title is the main thing in TNA and should be first thing dealt with after a PPV. Good mic work from everybody except Hogan, but that goes without saying these days.

Segment Rating: 3.5/5

 

Segment 2) TNA Knockouts Tag Title Match

Too short to amount to anything really. Please don't tell me that TNA are going the same way as WWE with their female athletes.....

Segment Rating: 1.5/5

 

Segment 3) RVD vs Hardy

Again, a short match but as usual the crowd was really into these two. I can understand this match being so short so I will be more lenient with the rating.

Segment Rating: 2/5

 

Segment 4) Team Flair vs Team Hogan

A really good tv match. Good to see Samoa Joe back. I like Joe's latest gimmick - it looks like it will be interesting. Nice encounters between certain wrestlers.

Segment Rating: 4/5

 

Segment 5) RVD vs AJ Styles for the TNA WH Title

Again, the crowd went nuts for these two, even though it was heat AJ was getting. This match should have been given the time of the Ldown rematch but I understand that it had to be kept short as this was RVD's fourth match in 24 hours. A really touching celebration for RVD afterwords.

Segment Rating: 3/5

 

Final Thoughts:

An ok show from TNA. Team Flair vs Team Hogan was the match of the night. Yet again though, no focus on the Xdivision. It's time to air TNA Xplosion on Thursday Nights in iMPACT's timeslot and make it exclusive to the X division.

Final Rating: 2.5/5
