(I guess most people would consider that blasphemy)
This is money well spent, but I couldn't imagine paying $35 for a TNA PPV!
Damn, TNA PPVs are $35? If I ever had to pay for one, I don't think I'd pay any more than a fiver, because that's how much they're worth nowadays.(Maximum!)
Turns out the six-man thing was nowhere near match of the night, lol.
Aries vs. Tozawa was really fuckin' good, both men really upped their game since their matches on yesterday's iPPV. ROH really made a major blunder letting Aries go! Before intermission, I thought this could've been the surprise MOTN. (even though the Reby Sky stuff came off as a tad stupid)
Intermission was much appreciated by me. In general it seems like they learned a lot from their mistakes on yesterday's iPPV in terms of pacing - Here's hoping they can work out the kinks with the sound issues and general technical difficulties by their next live iPPV.
BxB Hulk vs. Jon Moxley - two of my favourite wrestlers of the moment, and predictably they had a fantastic showing. (YOU KILLED BXB!!!) Wasn't really much point in it being a No-DQ match though, and it was far too short for my liking.
Taylor/Gargano vs. CIMA/Kid - I'll tell ya, even though most of DGUSA's tag matches generally follow a "10 mins slow, 10 mins breakneck" formula, it really never gets old - It's tried and tested! Anyway, again, I think everyone involved really upped their game since last night's show and put on a fantastic, fluid match. In fact, I was ready to declare this match the current Match of the Year holder....
...until Doi/Ricochet vs. Yoshino/PAC finished. Holy cockballs what an epic match. I just kept marking harder and harder as it went on, PAC and Ricochet especially were putting on a clinic of high-flying maneuvers. Maybe I'm overrating it because I just watched it, but I think it might've been better than the legendary Blood Generation vs. Do-Fixer match from Supercard of Honor. Match of the year so far for me (it's still early though!)
So it looks like it's between Ronin and World-1 for the United Gate titles. Awesome! I really wish tomorrow's show was iPPV too
(It's obvious as to why it isn't... but I would seriously watch that instead of the Rumble if it was) Probably won't turn up on DVD/the internet for months, making it pretty impossible to dodge spoilers.
If I had to put an arbitrary number on this even, I'd say maybe an 8, possibly a 9.
