Overall, I really enjoyed this pay-per-view.
Despite the very—I mean very—little hype behind this show, it did produce some good wrestling matches.
Just about every match was enjoyable. If you've seen the show, you can agree with that statement. There wasn't any real dull moments.
Robbie E vs. Eric Young
EY has been champion for too long and needed to drop the nearly dead title. To my surprise, Eric Young really brought a 110 percent for this match.
He wrestled really, really well and I don't remember seeing him do so good since his heel run as member of World Elite.
EY was very impressive in the match and if he had wrestled this way his entire time as champion, he would've been a pretty good champ. Too bad, his gimmick makes him a joke.
I think the ending was alright but Robbie should've done something more.
Rob Terry sweeps his feet, he hits his head and Robbie gets the win? Oh well. Whatever gets a new champion. It was a good opening match and EY really stepped up to the plate on this one.
Ink Inc vs. Mexican America
Jesse did OK, Anarquia didn't do much and the Knockouts weren't really needed for this match.
The two shining stars from each team are Hernandez and Shannon Moore. Both guys really turned it up for this match and did a great job.
Hernandez overpowering Neal and Moore was great and he did an awesome job at it. He definitely deserves to be called SuperMex after watching some of things he did in this match.
I was afraid Rosita would be a big part in Mexican America's win and she was. I just don't see how Anarquia and Hernandez can't defend their titles without help from Sarita and Rosita.
The outcome makes sense but now what? Will Ink Inc get another rematch?
Kid Kash vs. Jesse Sorensen vs. Austin Aries
I liked watching Kash just go to work on Sorensen and liked Sorensen's spurts of offense, but Aries little involvement annoyed me.
He's supposed to be champion, yet he hid behind Kash and used him to do his dirty work. I wanted to see Aries wrestle. Not have Aries watch Kash and Sorensen wrestle most of the match.
Either way, Kash and Sorensen did a great job and I feel like they picked the right winner in Austin Aries. I just hope for more action from Aries in future defenses.
Daniels vs. Rob Van Dam
This match was awesome.
Both guys, being the veterans they are, worked this match to near perfection.
With the No Disqualification stipulation, there really wasn't too much weapons involved. Just Daniels screwdriver and RVD's chair.
One thing that annoys me now is Daniels screwdriver. He tried to stab RVD with it and just failed. Daniels tries to stab people with a screwdriver but just screws himself. He's gotten more loses than wins with that thing.
I feel like RVD shouldn't've won and Daniels was far more deserving of the win but if Daniels can rebound from losing to AJ at BFG, he can certainly bounce back from this.
Crimson vs. Matt Morgan
These two giants put on a good show but I couldn't help but keep thinking of a Crimson heel turn.
Either way, the double disqualification was a smart move rather than having Crimson go over Morgan the first time they ever fought.
Definitely expect this feud to continue into Final Resolution with a possible turn from one of these guys.
Immortal vs. Abyss & Anderson
This would've made for a good match on TV, but not so much on pay-per-view.
We've already seen all these competitors face off before and it wasn't much different from their match on IMPACT.
Like I said, Scott Steiner was the best performer. He was definitely the most popular.
Gail Kim vs. Velvet Sky
The match itself was good but I'm still unsure of the outcome.
Gail can wrestle circles around Velvet and is definitely a good pick as champion. On the other hand, Velvet does deserve a good title reign and I think she's getting the Anderson treatment. Also known as, horrible title reigns.
Hopefully, this means more to their feud and hopefully Velvet gets a decent run in 2012.
I still think Gail's monster push is coming way too quick. She returned like three weeks ago and she holds every Knockouts title.
Jarrett vs. Hardy
The first fall was a stupid waste of time.
The second had Jarrett too dominant. Hardy hardly got in any offense. The third was just as dumb as the first.
This match didn't live up to expectations in my book. I don't know. Maybe I should watch it again or something because I feel like the hype towards this didn't pay off.
Styles vs. Roode
AJ worked injured and you can hardly tell. He did an awesome job and his move set was not at all effect by his ankle injury.
Roode played his heel role nicely and definitely has what it takes to be top heel in TNA, but more importantly, be World Champion.
Roode winning was a good call and the controversial use of the tights to secure his win was a good call, too. Maybe we'll see a rematch down the road.
The pay-per-view, with such little hype, can actually be called a big success in my book.
They gave every match a decent amount of time and a good flow. No match was too long or too short and, for the most part, the right winners were picked.
I'm actually considering whether this has pay-per-view of the year legitimacy. It was definitely a good show with good wrestling and could possibly be called the pay-per-view of the year for some.
At Turning Point, wrestling definitely mattered. This was a top shelf pay-per-view by TNA.
