My thoughts on Victory Road

Abyss vs Dr. Stevie

This was a typical squash match, but it was fun to watch. The crowd was into Abyss the entire time and that certainly made the match more fun to see. I found myself cringing at some of the shots dealt by the monster.

Matt Morgan vs Christopher Daniels

This match really could have been better, but every action made sense. Daniels has been working with a knee injury so who knows if the injury was actually re-aggravated or kayfabe.

Sharmell vs Jenna Morasca

The saddest excuse for a wrestling match ever. I am 100% positive that this was more of a publicity stunt, and a way to showcase how beautiful Morasca is. The crowd couldn’t have been less into this match if the fans weren’t there.

New Japan Tag Team Championship Match: Team 3D (c) vs The British Invasion

I didn’t care about this match as much as I thought I would. This wasn’t the best Team 3D match, but I feel like only Beer Money can make them look as good as they have. The British Invasion is slowly growing on me and I would imagine a program with LAX once Hernandez comes back is on the horizon.

TNA Knockout Championship Match: Tara (c) vs Angelina Love

At first, I thought the match was just ok, but had an awful ending. I think that with the promo of Madison Rayne messing around with Slick Johnson made the ending, if nothing else, workable.

TNA Tag Team Championship Match: Beer Money Inc. (c) vs Scott Steiner and Booker T

I LOVE the fact that Beer Money is a face and can really work both sides of the fence. These guys are the next big tag team in pro wrestling. Steiner and Booker T are two of the best tag team wrestlers in history and deserve the titles, even if only for a month. This was one of the better matches of the night. My only issue with it was the onslaught of heel moves used by Booker and Steiner. They were just too frequent.

TNA Legends Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs Kevin Nash

This was my favorite match of the night. I like how it was a strategic match, as well as one where AJ could fly. Styles made Nash look good, and Nash did the same. In probably the biggest shocker, Nash used more than six moves in match. The finish was awesome. The only way it could have gotten better was if Nash caught AJ in mid air by the throat and chokeslamed him from there.

Samoa Joe vs Sting

The match was good, but it was extremely predictable from beginning to the finish. The only other issue I had was that when Taz came to the ring, Joe like hulked up and nothing affected him.

TNA World Heavyweight Championship Match: Kurt Angle (c) vs Mick Foley

This match was surprisingly fun to watch. I didn’t quite now what to expect with the match, but I was happy with how it came about the finish.

Overall, this was a disappointment as far as the ppv is concerned. It had its good moments, but this show could have been a lot better than what was put out. Also, this wreaks of Russo writing.  Let’s have the main faction in the company hold all of the titles. Sound familiar? It is the same storyline he did with the NWO in WCW.

I think this one will end up better because I feel like TNA has more people who can win the titles and not lay down. Also, in WCW, they pushed the older guys so hard that most of the young talents were all in the tag team division and wouldn’t be able to challenge for the WCW title. TNA has a good mix and with AJ not having the Legends title and Bobby Lashley coming we have two people who potentially could win the TNA title.
