This is it! It's time for TNA to step up or shut up! It's Bound for Glory!! Their biggest show of the year!!! The WrestleMania of TNA!!! I'll review each match and give my thoughts and opinions on them.
Match #1: The MotorCity MachineGuns vs Generation ME for the World Tag Titles
Ok, I was expecting this to be the opener of the night and it delivered once again. The TNA Tag Division is just awesome and will always be awesome with these kinds of teams in it. Generation ME looked spectacular against the Guns and it was a fun way to kick off the PPV. The Guns retained the titles in a very good opening match. Still nowhere near as great as the feud with Beer Money though!
Match #2: Angelina Love vs Velvet Sky vs Madison Rayne vs Tara for the Knockout Championship with Mickie James as the guest referee
God, I missed Mickie so much and I am glad she's back. Now this match has had a lot of build behind it ever since Madison became champion at Lockdown! It was actually a good match although I did not like the tagging in thing. I would have preferred all four in the ring at the same time. Velvet also showed some improvement in her ability here but Tara got the win and is the new TNA Knockout Champion!! For a women's match this was actually pretty good.
Match #3: Eric Young and Orlando Jordan vs Ink Inc.
They had this match on Thursday!! WTF??!!! Anyway piss break match. The worst match I've seen in a long time. 3 on 1 against Orlando basically with Young either acting as a referee or tagging with Ink Inc. Worst match of the night. Btw, from this match forward the entire PPV goes downhill...big time!!
Match #4: Jay Lethal vs Douglas Williams for the X-Division Title
Kind of a random match but at least the X-Division Title got some exposure. Lethal would obviously win but I just don't like him. He has no gimmick whatsoever and that simply buries him. Williams was just amazing in this match and shows us why he should be higher up on the card. After the match Jersey Shore attack Lethal. Really??!! Great way to fuck everything up with the Shore. This gimmick will never work.
Match #5: RVD vs Abyss in a Monster's Ball match
I'm not a big fan of hardcore wrestling so the various spots in this match didn't really catch my attention. No blood for once. Shocking move by TNA here Anyways RVD obviously wins and actually uses Janice although it's obvious he didn't really hit Abyss since he would have easily killed him. Nothing special here.
Match #6: Sting/Nash and Pope vs Jarrett/Joe
This whole thing is just one big headache. I'm still confused as to what exactly all this is about. If someone can actually explain it to me leave a comment and explain it cause I'm really confused. Anyways, a pretty slow match with Jarrett turning heel? Or was he already a heel? You never know with TNA. He abandoned Joe and Nash gets the pin; probably Nash's last match now. I knew this match was gonna be bad and it didn't prove me wrong.
Match #7: EV2.0 vs Fourtune
Yes, your eyes did not deceive you. Dreamer pinned Styles at Bound for Glory. Anyone know of a way to bury Styles some more? I sure don't! This was one of the biggest booking mistakes I have ever seen. Lethal Lockdown matches are always the same. Just watch others and compare. This match was boring. You had 5 guys in their 50's against 5 guys in their prime with two other old guys fighting outside and a maniac called Kendrick hiding on top of the cage. Great job letting EV2.0 win TNA!
Match #8: Kurt Angle vs Anderson vs Jeff Hardy for the vacant TNA World Title
First thing I will say here; this match was awesome. It was a great main event...at least until a certain point. These guys were throwing everything they had at each other until the referee got KO'ed. That's when I face palmed. Bischoff came out! Yes he actually appeared on the main event. He had a chair in his hands...but oh that's not all. Mr.EgoMania himself appeared. Apparently his back surgery wasn't so serious after all. Why can't these two put their egos aside for one night??!! Jeff looks to play peacekeeper then grabs Hogan's crutch and smacks Angle with it. He takes the other from Bischoff and takes out Anderson. Twist of Fate on Anderson and the now heel Jeff Hardy is the new Champion. Abyss and Jarrett come out and ladies and gentlemen, THEY have arrived. Are you kidding me????!!!!! What an atrocious ending to a PPV. It ruined the entire main event. Is Kurt gonna retire? Guess TNA forgot about that fact. Fans throw trash into the ring as they should. TNA robbed those fans of their money as well as their viewers at home. RVD comes out and Jeff knocks him out. PPV over! Wow!!
This PPV was horrible. It it wasn't for MCMG vs Gen Me and the Knockouts doing everything they can to put on a good show, this PPV would have been the worst I've ever seen. If this is what TNA can come up with then I'm sorry but get ready to publish the "Rise and Fall of TNA" while omitting "Rise". Madison Rayne said on the last episode of Impact the phrase, "Bound for Failure." That phrase sums up the PPV.
