About half way through my review, I lost all of the things  for my review so I’ll put up the matches and the need to know things from tonight’s episode of Impact:

The Matches:

Kurt Angle and Mick Foley vs Matt Morgan and Abyss

Abyss was worked on through most of the match. This was an ok main event. It didn’t have a ton of spots until the end. The finish saw Abyss fake a shot at Foley with the barbed wire bat, sending Foley into the Carbon Footprint.

TNA X Division Title Match: Samoa Joe (c) vs Amazing Red

This wasn’t a bad match, but it did make Red look weak. Red is a great wrestler and did some phenomenal things during the match, but if Bobby Lashley hadn’t come out, Red couldn’t have pulled the upset. Red got the win with a standing shooting star press.

TNA Legends Title Match: Kevin Nash (c) vs Hernandez

This was ruled a no contest after Eric Young interfered. No shocker here. Before that, the match was ok at best.

TNA Knockout Title Match: ODB (c) vs Tara

This was a quick one since there was only 20 minutes left in the show and the main event still to come. The crowd was not really into this match as much as the others. As expected, Awesome Kong came out and she is bringing a sledge hammer. ODB pins Tara after hitting the TKO.

Daniels and Suicide vs D’Angelo Dinero and Homicide

With Daniels, Suicide, and Dinero, you would think this would be a great match. This one left a lot to be suspected. During the match, Homicide attacks Willie Urbina and Hector Guerrero. The finish came when Dinero hit the Express on Daniels, when he went for the BME.

Knockout Tag Elimination Match: Madison Rayne, Velvet Sky, Alissa Flash, and Traci Brooks vs Hamada, Sarita, Taylor Wilde and Christy Hemme

The match was a good knockout match, with some fairly good wrestling. This wasn’t anything to write home to mom about, but the main issue was trying to squeeze an elimination match in a less than 10 minute spanm it doesn’t work. Rayne gains the victory after Lacey Von Erich hit a chokeslam on Sarita with the ref’s back turned.

What you need to know:

Abyss will face Mick Foley in a Monster’s Ball match at Bound For Glory. Foley tweaked the match so Dr. Stevie could be the special guest referee and Abyss can’t use thumbtacks.

Team 3D, Booker T and Scott Steiner, Beer Money Inc., and The British Invasion sign a contract for a ladder match between the four teams. The IWGP Tag Titles and the TNA Tag Titles will be on the line.

Kevin Nash will take on Eric Young and Hernandez at BFG for the Legend’s title.

TNA Heavyweight Title Match: Kurt Angle (c) L vs Sting vs Matt Morgan vs AJ Styles W vs Hernandez

My Thoughts: I will admit it. I was shocked at how good this pay per view was. There were dynamic matches and everyone was well done. I am one to say that the matches with just big men are something I have no interest in whatsoever, but Nash/Abyss was a good match. These weren’t the best matches of the year, though some could be argued that they are. This was the best pay per view this year with only Wrestlemania being the competition. It didn’t have a match as awesome and striking as Taker/Michaels, but it was put together better and had more in depth storylines than Wrestlemania.

I would like to stress that this wasn’t the greatest pay per view ever, but it is arguably the best one this year.

Lethal Lockdown Match

We join the match already in progress. It is an interesting way to start the show, but I don’t know if it was the best way to go.

Angle calls out Styles for almost quitting. Angle says Sting has lost a step and wants to steal the title from Styles.

Jeremy Borash is with Mick Foley and he says he is looking forward to the match against Kevin Nash next week. Dr. Stevie walks into the office and he says that Stevie was a great wrestler. Dr. Stevie says he will have a chance to collect his own bounty when he faces Abyss tonight.

Roxxi gets tripped up and Love rolls up Rayne for the win.

JB is with Mick Foley and Cody Deaner and the Deaner asks for a tune up match against a knockout. He wants to showcase his skills. My guess is it will be Awesome Kong.

Abyss vs Dr. Stevie

Stevie jumps Abyss from behind and rolls into the ring for him to be counted out. Stevie tries to keep the big man down, but Anyss keeps getting up and Abyss takes down Stevie with a big slap. Abyss hits a splash on Stevie and a Black Hole Slam for the three count. After the match, Kevin Nash hits a clothesline on Abyss and raises the knee on him. The two men beat Abyss down in the corner as Mick Foley comes out for the save.

The World Elite come out to the ring and EY says he still wants to recruit Hernandez. EY wants Super Mex in the family and for him to be given a fair chance. EY is so boring that Alex Shelley is playing TNA Impact the video game while the promo is going on.

Hector Guerrero comes out and he has a mic in hand. He says Hernandez won’t come out because EY got him disqualified.  Hector says Hernandez only wants to give back to the fans and he says the aren’t American, but it is their country. Hector says there is enough hate in the world and to end it. EY says  Hector should know how they feel and the only reason he is still standing is respect for him.  EY says he will give Hernandez a reason to come out as the World Elite.

Angle claims Morgan went into business for himself when he kicked him. Angle says he heard the ref and thought it was Morgan being pinned. Angle went to get the chair and he says he accidentally hit him instead of Sting. Morgan is absolutely livid. Angle says that they achieved what they set out to do and he will give Morgan another chance. Angle and Morgan will face Team 3D in a tables match tonight.
