A lot of matches were short or gimmicked but thats cool., 31 May 2008
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The Inception was the 1st ppv event of world wrestling all stars taking place in Sydney Australia.

Juvi vs Psicosis in a ladder match for the WWA Cruiserweight title

Road Dogg vs Konnan in a dog collar match

Norman Smiley vs Devon Storm in a hardcore match

A open invitational battle royal

Jeff Jarrett vs Nathan Jones in a guitar on a pole match

Road Dogg vs Lenny Lane vs Lodi

Jeff Jarrett vs Buff Bagwell in a tits, whips & buff match

Vampire Warrior (Gangrel) vs Luna in a black wedding gown match

Jeff Jarrett vs Road Dogg in a cage match for the WWA world title

Special Appearance by Bret Hart

Most of the matches seem too short, but it was probably to fit more stuff on the card with this being their 1st show. The announcing was well done by Jerry Lawler and Jermey Borash (whos very underrated as an announcer). WWA had the Starlettes which were similar to Nitro girls. Don't let Road Dogg in the main event fool you, it delivered.

Makes the 1st film seem pointless but its a deep movie., 30 May 2008
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The main story has Tong Po's manager trying to bait the younger brother of Kurt & Eric Sloan into fighting Tong Po.

The worst thing about this movie is the fight scenes. They aren't bad but 80% of the fight scenes are in slow motion.

Dennis Chan reprised his role as Xian and thats a plus as he helped provide the comedy relief.

The story was deep displaying the emotional torture of David Sloan. Then there's the human game of chess Tong Po's manager plays with multiple characters.

Sasha Mitchell did a exceptional job succeeding Van Damme. This does make the 1st movie seem pointless but its a decent film.

A lot of feuds progressing plus Basebrawl part 2, 28 May 2008
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Team 3D vs LAX for the tag titles in a Little Italy Street Fight - Like all of the matches these teams have had this was a fun hardcore brawl. Some weapons like the pizza cutter fit the gimmick match.

Christy Hemme vs The fat oily guy in a tuxedo match - To win someone had to be stripped of their tuxedo.

Senshi vs Austin Starr Rhino vs AJ Styles in a chain match - A great showing by both considering how limited they were by the chain. A funny moment with Earl Hebner in this match.

Lance Hoyt w/ David Eckstein vs. Dale Torborg w/ AJ Pierzynski Chris Sabin vs Jerry Lynn for the X title - This match was pretty slow but still interesting. Sabin was superb as a heel.

Petey Williams & Gail Kim vs Jacqueline & James Storm Sting vs Abyss in a prison yard match - This match fit Abyss character and one of the best matches I've ever seen Sting in.

Kurt Angle vs Christian for the world title There's also some funny segments hosted by Alex Shelley with Jay Lethal, Sonjay Dutt, Leticia Cline and Kevin Nash showing Ms Brooks trying to get Eric Young to sign a contract.

There's a in ring segment with Robert Roode and Eric Young as well.

A couple of matches didn't deliver, but overall a good show., 24 May 2008
8/10

MNM vs the New LOD for the tag titles - It was a nice comeback story for Animal.

Christian vs Booker T - This match wasn't bad, but for a ppv match it wasn't as good as one would think.

Undertaker vs Muhammad Hassan - For any Hassan fans, this was his last match in WWE. The match was fun though because he had a lot of backup and Undertaker went shell after the match.

Mexicools vs BWO

Eddie Guerrero vs Rey Mysterio - Another long list of superb matches they had together.

Melina vs Torrie Wilson in a bra & panties match - Candice Michelle was the guest ref. The fans were the true winners in this one. (trust me)

Orlando Jordan vs Chris Beniot for the U.S. title - For the "best pure athlete" and "best technical wrestler" This match was OK. Nice psychology though.

Batista vs JBL - I loved the hype but this match was very slow. Their following match was kept short thats understandable.

TNA's best ppv of 2007, 24 May 2008
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Kurt Angle vs. Sting for the World title - With both men at late stages in their careers, they exceeded expectations.

LAX vs. XXX in a Ultimate X match - Great opener

Team Pacman vs. AJ Styles & Tomko for the tag titles - Pacman Jones had a replacement named Consequences Creed take his place. Nice to see AJ as the home crowd favorite.

Jay Lethal vs. Christopher Daniels for the X title - One of the best matches they've had in TNA together.

Steiners vs. Team 3D in a tables match - A dream rematch with some good spots.

Samoa Joe vs. Christian Cage - These 2 ALWAYS work fantastic together

TNA Knockouts Battle Royal - to crown the 1st Knockouts champion

Abyss vs. Raven vs. Rhino vs. Black Reign in a Monsters Ball match

Fight For The Right Battle Royal - Entertaining way to showcase TNA's talent on their biggest show of the year.

Summerslam (2005) (TV)
The main event isn't worth it, the rest of the show is., 30 April 2008
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Hulk Hogan vs. Shawn Michaels - The start of this match was fun, as hard as it is to believe HBK being in control made this hard to watch.

WWE Championship: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho - The crowd being split is what made this match enjoyable.

World Championship: Batista vs. JBL - This being kept short and the No Holds Barred rules helped this match a lot.

Matt Hardy vs. Edge - Way too short for Hardys return but the ending was unpredictable.

Randy Orton vs. Undertaker - On par with their Wrestlemania match

Eugene vs. Kurt Angle - Angle being so intense really added to this match. I loved his celebration at the end.

Ladder Match: Eddie Guerrero vs. Rey Mysterio U.S. Championship:

Orlando Jordan vs Chris Beniot - This was really really short but after their Great American Bash match you can see why.

Fantastic show overall.

WWE Unforgiven (2005) (TV)
Good showing by Raw, 30 April 2008
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Shelton Benjamin vs. Kerwin White - Solid match but Shelton selling a knee a injury put limitations on this match

Trish & Ashley vs. Victoria & Torrie

The Hurricane & Rosey vs. Cade & Murdoch for the tag titles - I enjoyed this match. Hurricane took a couple bad shots.

Big Show vs. Snitsky - For 2 big men their sizes, this was a great match.

Edge vs. Matt Hardy in a Cage Match - This match was insane!

Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Masters - I love HBK but every time I watch this I fall asleep midway through the match. The ending is good though.

Ric Flair vs. Carlito for the Intercontinenal Championship

John Cena vs. Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship - Decent match, better than the one they had @ No Way Out 2005.

There were some funny backstage celebrating with Ric Flair. This was probably the last great ppv they had in 05.

Thank you Shane!, 29 April 2008

This was a ECW reunion show, a counterpart to WWE's ECW One Night Stand. The commentary was done by Joey Styles. A special appearance by Mick Foley.

Tracy Smothers vs Blue meanie - This was a comedy match consisting of dance-offs.

Gangstanators vs Bad Breed

Chris Chetti & Mikey Whipwreck vs CW Anderson & Simon Diamond

Fallen Heroes of hardcore tribute - A segment featuring Johnny Grungde, Pitbull Gary Wolfe and Tammy Stych.

Justin Credible vs Jerry Lynn

Raven vs Sandaman - I thought this was the most fun match on the card.

Kid Kash vs 2 Cold Scorpio

Terry Funk vs Shane Douglas vs Sabu in a barbwire match

This was a good show, my only complaint is the DVD editing which makes it hard to follow at times. Some of the music seems edited as do "ECW" chants from the crowd because of copyright issues which isn't their fault.

Bonus DVD features: Autograph and Q & A session. A tour of the arena. Interviews including Blue Meanies take on his altercation with JBL @ the One Night Stand ppv. A Shane Douglas/Francine reunion.

Bonus XPW matches: Shane Douglas vs. Chris Candido Shane Douglas vs. Terry Funk Shane Douglas vs. Justin Credible Jerry Lynn vs. Juventud Guerrera Axl Rotten vs. Kronus

Fantastic documentary, 26 April 2008
10/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This was a fantastic documentary.

It covers the basics like ECW taking off, ending, their TV deal, talent leaving, certain angles like The Raven/Sandman crucifixtion and how some gimmicks came about. It was insightful hearing the different opinions on it.

There were some other interesting things mentioned like the fall where New Jack lost the sight in his eye. Public Enemys WWE run, The Franchise breaking Gary Wolfes neck and the Mass Transit incident with New Jack.

This DVD covered things Rise & fall of ECW did and didn't which is why its a good pickup.

Nice collection for any Sting or WCW fan, 26 April 2008
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sting narrates this video while in character. I thought it was cool with the background and stuff. This video covers Sting in 1999.

Matches show him in 4 way w/ DDP, Flair and Hogan for the world title. His match with DDP for the world title on Nitro. Matches against Flair, Goldberg, DDP and Nash.

My only gripe about this video is the matches are edited to where 90% of the time you only see Stings offense.

There's also some nice confrontations w/ Nash, Flair, Team Madness and The Steiner Brothers.

This was a nice Sting video and different from the video "Sting Unmasked" which was in depth and out of character. This is a good grab for a Sting fan, or WCW fan in general since its pretty rare.
