| So is Jeff Jarrett thrusting himself back into the World title scene? And does he always have to be aligned with the new new heel(s) that come to TNA?|
The BG James & Kip "the Outlaw/Billy Gunn" James story has gone on waaay too long ... just go ahead & team them up & align them with Sean Waltman.

| Actually, that was Waltman's second GOOD match this year (Styles vs Waltman; Lynn as ref), the other one being Waltman vs Raven in a Raven's rules match.|
He's still X-pacish, but he was actually showing some small amounts of effort.
TNA has been getting better and better each month. I have been becoming a huge Dutt fan these past months, and he is something to see.
The Joe match was AWESOME. It looks like there will be a Joe/Daniels fued in the works.

| For the first time in a few years, I marked out over and over and over while watching No Surrender.|
If you have any means of checking it out on replay (or if a buddy taped it, whatever), I strongly suggest doing so. Hands-down the PPV of the year.
If you're a fan of Daniels, Styles, Samoa Joe, Sabin, Petey, Abyss, and even Sean Waltman (when he's at his best), then this was the PPV of the year to see because they all shone like brilliant stars! Daniels-Petey and AJ-Waltman were really well put together. Daniels-Petey especially impressed me! It was stiff, fluid, and didn't miss a beat.
The first half of Raven-Abyss was poor and looked like Raven as champ might be a failure, but wow, did things ever turn around!
Joe is getting a SOLID push to the top and yeah, it looks like he'll win the X-Cup to get a shot at Daniels.
Jarrett was BARELY on screen for the PPV. I don't like his involvement either, but to say he ruined the show or to act like he even made a difference for better or worse would be false. If you watched the PPV, you wouldn't be complaining at length about Jarrett and you probably just read the results.
Rhino is here. It wasn't the greatest debut, but he did gore the champ. If you don't like Jarrett, you're probably not ordering the shows anyway. But sadly, he's paired with Rhino (which is far better than having Rhino as a face). I didn't care that Matt Hardy wasn't on the show or even notice it, thanks to all the high quality matches.

| Once again, TNA delivers a better by far PPV than WWE. A top to bottom excellent card giving us fresh new matches like Daniels/Williams and Joe/Sabin, both of which have never happened before. WWE hasn't delivered a card this good in quite some time. |
For now, whenever I want to watch a "WRESTLING" PPV, I'm going to watch TNA.
I am also annoyed with Jarrett getting shoved back in the main event scene, after 2 straight TNA PPV's without him in it. I don't mind him feuding with Raven, but he definitely shouldn't beat him at the next PPV. A win over Jarrett would definitely solidify Raven's reign as world champ.

| "WWE hasn't delivered a card this good in quite some time."|
WWE delivered a near-blowaway show less than a month ago. It didn't have the large handful of good to very good matches you get on TNA shows (with the occassional top notch Daniels or Styles or Daniels vs. Styles match), but they did two decents, a really good one (Cena defense), a great one (Hell in a Cell), and a MOTYC (Michaels/Angle). For six matches, that was a hell of a card.
TNA has had a rep for delivering really strong PPVs since they started the monthlies, but burying a terrific show like Vengeance to make that point isn't very fair. Then again, throw out Mania 21 and there hadn't been any really great WWE PPVs since April 2004. Now, the Bash will revert back to that trend, so alls I'm saying is ... Vengeance was a wonderful anomaly (and they manipulated the roster swaps to do it), but it was wonderful nonetheless.

| I thought it was pretty good -- nothing really blew me away, nothing really sucked (although Diamond / Young vs. Siaki / Apolo wasn't too good).|
I enjoyed Abyss working pretty much the whole match with a ten-dollar bill stapled to his forehead. And the spot of the night that made say "Owwww!!!" the loudest was Daniels powerbombing Williams into the ring apron.
Nice to see Rhino, I guess.
