I don’t watch masses of TBA, as it infuriates me that it’s not as good as it’s roster. But the hardys broken brilliance has got me back into it a bit. So here are my thoughts on their biggest event.
X division title. Good match, nice way to open a pay per view. I can’t help but feel for the wrestlers though. The 6 sided.rimg seems so much harder and more painful.than a 4 sided one.
Bound for gold – like a ten man rumble match. Not massively well booked. No notable wrestling involved. A couple of decent comedic elements but pants on the whole.
Moose vs Mike Bennett – this match wasn’t amazing, it wasn’t terrible either. It wasn’t a patch on Moose vs Joe Coffey from WCPW Stacked.
Rex vs Edwards – grand championship. I’m not a fan of rounds in wrestling. It hampers the flow of the match in my opinion and this was an example of exactly that. I’d like to see these two in a regular match.
The great war. Oh. My. Word. What an awesome match. Since Matt went broken the hardys have certainly been the best thing about TNA. The final deletion and delete or decay were pretty good segments, but the great war surpassed them. It had all the qualities they had, plus some excellent wrestling and brawling. Genuinely the most I’ve enjoyed a TNA match in years. Also, it gave us a reminder of how nuts abyss actually is taking barbed wire table bumps with added thumb tacks. This match was awesome and told a superb story. I can’t wait to see what is next for the broken hardys.
Knockouts title. Not a bad match. Maria has improved a lot over that last few years and Gail has always been a phenomenal performer who deserves the honour of being the first female into the TNA hall of fame.
Main event: not bad. Both are good wrestlers and they gave us a solid main event. I feel both are capable of more though.
Overall it was a typical TNA event. Some great wrestlers producing matches that were not bad, but not what they are capable of. This event, however, was made more than worth watching by the broken brilliance of the hardys and their great war.
