Bound For Glory and Wrestlemania

Rate this Entry
Since this Sunday is TNAs biggest PPV of the year..... I want to look at the card and compare it to Wrestlemania and even last years Bound For Glory PPV....

One thing TNA has done right has built the pay per view with matches advertised.. From the World title Roode vs Angle, Hogan vs Sting for control of the company, The Knockouts Title match Winter vs Velvet Sky vs Mickie James vs Madison Rayne, the X division title match Kendrick vs Aries, Bully Ray vs Mr Anderson, AJ Styles vs Daniels, and RVD vs Jerry Lynn.....

Last year Bound For Glory was all advertised or based off the date 10-10-10, With Hogan turning heel and Jeff Hardy turning heel and the formation of Immortal... As well as EV2 vs Fortune and Sting and Nash and Dinero vs Samoa Joe and Double J, and the TNA debut of Mickie James and special referee in the Knockouts title match...

Looking at Wrestlemania 27.... Had the WWE build with Cena vs Miz, World title with Edge vs Del rio(Royal Rumble winner), Snooki and Trish and Morrison vs Laycool and Ziggler with Vickie Gurrero, Undertaker vs Triple H and Cole vs Lawler.... Which was the main matches advertised.... Up till that weekend or till the show....

Is it me or do TNA build a PPV better most of the time???? Is it me or does the WWE only rely on Main Event matches to much???? To answer both questions yes it does seem so.....

    They have been improving some and stepped up their game at BFG. I am excited for the Falls count anywhere between Anderson and Bully Ray. Also the I Quit match could be interesting.

    I can't disagree with the fact that WWE mainly builds the main event matches however this build most times is far better than Tna's. One thing Tna does better in terms of building is that they give sufficient time for stories to build, that is the time between ppvs. 5weeks build for BFG whereas WWE has a 2 weeks for HIAC. 2 weeks really really really...

    Man, great breakdown of these two events. I am amazed at how right you are on this topic. Bound for Glory has such a great build up compared to Wrestlemania! I cant help but throw in here that Wrestlemania wasnt the greatest PPV by far. I agree that build up has so much to do with this. Relating Bound for Glory to Wrestlemania 12 is an example. The build up for the main event is similar withut the iron man stipulation, but besides that Roode is Micheals and Angle is the legend Bret Hart. BTW wanted Mcheals to win and so will Roode!!!

    Niether show was that fantastic last year. Although I'm glad they're finally doing something with Bobby Roode. Hopefully his match with Kurt will be between 25 to 30 minutes. While Bobby is a solid performer this is his first main event & Kurt can carry most of the match while making both of them look good.

    Thanks for the comments and thoughts....

    Only thing I'll say last years Bound For Glory was great up till Hogan and Bischoff interfered in the title match... Kinda threw alot of people off even with the most popular guy in TNA Jeff Hardy turning heel and not Mr Anderson or Kurt Angle.... Although they did good building the Mr Anderson character since...
    Now with Mania this year was it Cole vs Lawler that made it awful or Miz vs Cena or Snooki??? But i thought up till the Cole vs Lawler match it was good....

    Looking at Bound For Glory.... An Immortal? Fortune Spot feast in the Sting vs Hogan hopefully this want last but less the 10 minutes... Every other match should get 10 to 15 minutes.... Hopefully Angle vs Roode will at least 20 minutes or more with some good wrestling....
    Just wonder if they will tease any surprise, hadn't heard or see anything yet if so????

    Its all about the build up and I am glad people see it! The sport should be like any sport and that's based on a championship. If you ain't playing for a championship then it had better be during to extreme bad blood (example : The Ravens and Steelers). The only thing wwe is doing right is building up Rock vs Cena, people complain about it being so long but every body will be ready when it happens!
    Two thumbs up for a great build up ppv TNA!
