First two hours were perfectly adequate -- nothing embarrassing, nothing amazing. Last hour was FANTASTIC.

Homicide vs. The Amazing Red

Red wins, and retains, by pinning Homicide with the Code Red.

The Beautiful People vs. Sarita, Taylor Wilde & ODB

Faces retain. ODB pins Madison Rayne with the TKO. Someone in the crowd had a "LACEY VON BOTCH" sign; luckily her participation was minimal.

Motor City Machine Guns vs. British Invasion vs. Beer Money

Brits retain with the elevated bearhug/Euro uppercut combo on Robert Roode. James Storm had been taken out by Kevin Nash with the Global Belt that Nash took from an interfering Eric Young. Swerve! MCMG vanished several minutes before the finish and were never seen again. Swerve!

Afterwards, Nash says that he did what he did because -- well, he'll tell us later, if Hulk Hogan says it's okay.

Awesome Kong vs. Tara

Tara wins with a Thesz press off the top of the cage (!!!) after powerbombing Kong (!!!) from the turnbuckle. She says she's coming after ODB next.

Team 3D & Rhino vs. Matt Morgan, Hernandez and D'Angelo Dinero

Veterans win. Hernandez had Rhino up for a Border Toss when Devon hit him in the stomach with a chair, followed by a GORE and a pin by Rhino. Surprised Dinero didn't eat the pin. He looked really good here.

"The Boss" Bobby Lashley vs. "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner

This was no DQ, Falls Count Anywhere. Steiner pulled apart a scaffold to get a steel pipe, which he brained Lashley with for the pin.

Kurt Angle vs. Desmond Wolfe

Angle wins with a triangle choke after multiple anklelocks and Angle Slam attempts failed to do it -- Wolfe had him scouted just too well, and Angle had to pull out something unexpected. I'm a little disappointed that Wolfe didn't win to make his domination complete, but this was just tremendous.

Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Daniels

Styles retains with a springboard 450° on BOTH Joe and Daniels while Daniels was covering Joe following an STO and the BME. This was maybe even better than their Unbreakable 2005 match. These guys work so well with each other and put together some amazing, innovative stuff, full of reversals and counters (and the return of Styles' Fosbury Flop!).

Match of the Year from TNA, with Wolfe vs. Angle right behind it.

Just outstanding final hour. Angle going over was kinda telegraphed by Wolfe beating the ever-loving snot out of him for three weeks, so I've not got much of a problem with that. Not sure how they follow up with him, though - program with Sting?

Am glad they kept the belt on AJ. I had visions of a Joe win to set up a showdown with Hogan. He does love him some monster heels.

What the Hell happened with MCMG? And what would Hogan have to do with the World Elite? Hmmm. Somewhat intriguing (the second part, not the first).

That main event 3-way doesn't get enough credit. That's the first main event I've watched since TNA came to my city in 07. What I loved most of all is that the show's finale consisted of three men who have not been Upper Card guys in WWE, ECW,or WCW. This is what TNA should be focused on, I know Angle and Sting, etc are more recognized but they have to give the next generation it's spotlight and credibility so TNA won't grow stagnant. In fact from start to finish this was the first PPV I've seen that didn't feel like the last days of WCW which is awesome.

During the Styles/Joe/Daniels match didn't a "Screw Hulk Hogan" chant start? I really didn't want to think of the horrible day of his inevitable arrival.

The Angle/Wolfe match is at youtube (it's good, especially the end), but couldn't find the Main Event 3 way. Anyone know where it is online that I can watch it?

Kevin Kelly: "Mr. Austin, would you like to comment on Wade Keller's Take that endorsing the XFL hurts your anti-authority character?"

Steve Austin: "Oh shit, he actually said that? I thought the boys in the back were ribbing me!"

Kelly: "No, he really said that. Did they tell you the part about you sitting in the stands, looking all skeptical?"

Austin: "AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Yeah... oh man that was too much."

Sorry this is a bit late...

As everyone else who has already said, the last two matches were outstanding. Easily the best TNA show I've watched since '05.

As I mentioned in the Raw thread, when Jericho gets Austin on Hi-Lite Reel, he has just GOT to mention that he was the last person to take Austin's precious gold from him. sergei
