Review:

The Naturals def. The Diamonds in the Rough

It was good to see the newly "Franchised" Naturals back in action. They were very impressive. The match itself was a great way to start the PPV and showcase some good tag team talent.

Rhino and Monty Brown ends in no contest

No contest or not, this one was great. This match is no doubt a great start to a feud that should produce some amazing matches. Though there was no winner, this one kept the pace of the PPV going.

The Latin American eXchange def. Sonjay Dutt and Ron Killings

This was one of the better matches of the night. The two teams worked great in the ring together and provided some great tag team spots. Hernandez's finisher just looks awesome.

TNA X Division Championship
Senshi (Champion) def. Kazarian

Nothing spectacular by X Division standards, but still a decent match. Still, kinda weird seeing Senshi as X Division Champ.

Hair vs. Hair Match
Raven def. Larry Zbyszko

Obviously, this one was a squash dominated by Raven. The match itself was okay. The aftermath was very entertaining.

Chris Sabin and Jay Lethal def. Alex Shelley and Kevin Nash

Not too bad a match, but Nash really doesn't fit in this one. Still, he makes it entertaining. The match showcased a lot of Sabin's, Lethal's, and Shelley's talents.

Six Man Tag Match
The James Gang and Abyss def. Team 3D

One word: HARDCORE. Enough said.

NWA Tag Team Championship
AJ Styles and Christopher Daniels (Champions) and Sirelda def. America's Most Wanted and Gail Kim

This was a very, very good match and is definitely match of the night. It included some very great spots that even included the ladies. This one was a must see.

Four Way Match for the #1 Contender to the NWA Heavyweight Championship
Sting def. Scott Steiner, Samoa Joe, and Christian Cage

Nothing too fancy, but this match did show that Samoa Joe can hang with the big boys. Good match to watch.

Overall: A decent PPV by TNA standards, but they have done better. There are a few great matches to watch and the rest don't kill the shows momentum. Overall good.
