The honeymoon is over for TNA head booker Dusty Rhodes. Rhodes who received very good praise in his early booking years, has shown that he has learned nothing during his years in Jim Crockett Promotions. He is using the same technique week in week out and this is boring the arse out of the fans.
The main event featured the Triple H equivalent of TNA, Jeff Jarrett against Diamond Dallas Page. Although the result wasn't in doubt, it did prove to be a solid performance. Jarrett won this match and still retained the NWA belt as usual, but he did it with the help from his guitar, the usual ref bumps and Monty Brown's heel turn.
Else where on the show Brown defeated Trytan in a poor match. The thing is though Brown pinned a masked man (Dennis Knight) to win the contest. Why? I haven't got a clue. The Ultimate X match was brilliant, and this consisted of AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Elix Skipper and Ron Killings. Next The Outlaw (Kip James) defeated Kevin Nash in a terrible first blood match, Dustin Rhodes pinned Raven (obviously) in a bullrope match. Abyss defeated Jeff Hardy in a very good falls count anywhere match. It was just shame that the match went completely to hell at the end, and watch out for Hardy's temper tantrum. Abyss was professional enough though before he began tossing furniture around backstage. And finally The Desciples of Destruction defeated Phi Delta Slam in a lousy match.
If you thought Destination X was overkill, check out Lockdown, every match was set to be a steel cage. Something tells me that Rhodes booking days for TNA are outnumbered.
