I thought it was a solid show.
James Storm vs. Chris Harris was really good, more than making up for last month's horrible, awful blindfold match. Storm bled a TON. I mean, the mat looked like a Jackson Pollock painting. At the end, he was lying prone on the matt with his face in a visibly-widening pool of blood. Insane.
Joe vs. Styles was also good -- nothing really innovative, but well done. Nice "faked injury" spots, too.
LAX vs. 3D vs. Steiner & Tomko was alright. Homicide still doesn't get to do anything at all, but it looks like 3D will move into a feud with the Steiners (oh boy!) leaving LAX to do...something else.
Kip James vs. B&D was AWFUL. I wonder if BG and Kip decided that losing to these guys was something that they just weren't interested in doing, and the "two against one" thing was their way of compromising. Ech.
Roode vs. JJ was way too long.
Daniels vs. Rhino and Lynn vs. Shelley vs. Tiger Mask IV vs. Senshi were both fine, although they came off as sort of...unecessary. I am not impressed with Tiger Mask so far.
Christian Cage vs. Kurt Angle vs. Sting was good for a TNA main event. Ending sucked! This was one of the shortest matches of the night, Iwhich I don't think is a good thing.

Kind of. The main event actually ended with Angle submitting Sting while Sting was simultaneously pinning Christian. I imagine on Impact there will be controversy over who won so I guess it's still possible that Sting could've pinned Christian.
It sucks that it looks like Angle and Sting will feud for the title because Christian has been hands down the most entertaining wrestler on TNA and whatever this angle with Sting and Christopher Daniels is seems to be an after thought since Sting is feuding for the title.
It was a pretty good show I thought. They definitely went back to more wrestling after last month's gimmick fest but there were still some booking questions of course. Still the wrestling made for a good ppv.
I actually liked that Roode got the win over Jarrett. Unfortunately Jarrett immediately got the win back by putting Roode in the figure four making Roode's win pretty much pointless.
I wasn't impressed with Tiger Mask either also Shelley continues to be wasted as it looks like he and Sabin will now get Austin Starr's spot as Backlund's next opponent. Oh goodie.
