As is the case with most wrestling events the 2005 TNA Destination X has it's ups and downs. (All ratings out of 5 stars) 1st match: America's Most Wanted and 3 Live Kru vs Team. **- standard quality no real high spots 2nd Match: Chris Sabin vs Chase Stevens **- same as above 3rd Match: Dustin Rhodes (Goldust) vs Raven **.5- The Rhodes are known for the bullrope match and it's well deserved. Rhodes appeared to carry Raven for a lot of it.
4th Match: Monty Brown vs. Trytan *.5- Brown carried Trytan to create a watchable match. Trytan was really hyped for the match, but he disappointed. He showed up twice more on Impact and got fired. That speaks to his performance.
5th Match: Jeff Hardy vs. Abyss ****- Hardy does a lot of high risk original moves in the match, they fight in the crowd and in the back and fight with chairs and ladders. Abyss doesn't do much to impress but he takes a beating.
6th Match: First Blood: Kevin Nash vs. Kip James (Billy Gunn) **- standard quality match.
7th Match: Ultimate X Championship between AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Ron Killings and Elix Skipper *****- This was an amazing match and one of the best matches of the year regardless of company. It starts as a tag team match wear the wrestler who is pinned is out which creates a triple threat and then an Ultimate X match for the final two. Lots of original moves, a lot of adrenaline and an overall amazing match.
8th Match: NWA World Heavyweight Title Match Jeff Jarrett vs DDP ***- pretty good match, the crowd got into it, a lot of interference.
You can usually find this DVD pretty cheap used. It's definitely worth it for the Ultimate X match alone.
