My Review of last nights Hard Justice PPV.
TNA X-Division Championship:
Petey Williams vs Creed
This was a very good match, and it helped because the fans were so into this match. They were mostly for Williams but there was a couple of Creed fans here. There was back and forth action here with the Canadian Destroyer being teased through-out the match. There was about 2-3 times I thought the match should have been over but went on which was good. The finish was decent but the run-in pulled it back a little but it made sense. The promo after was good, but they should have kept it for iMPACT so it would be seen by more people. ***3/4.
6-Womens Knock-out Match:
Gail Kim, ODB, Taylor Wilde vs Awesome Kong, Velvet Sky, Angelina Love.
This was a good match but nothing more than that. The heels should have went over with Kong pinning Taylor Wilde but what can you do. There was some good stuff in this match especially from Gail Kim but this match could have been on iMPACT IMO. The match didnt build up to any match which I thought it should have. At least an argument with Kim, ODB, Wilde on who sohould get the pin, just something. **3/4
TNA Tag Team Championships:
LAX vs Beer Money
I was a bit sceptical about this match as I am not a Robert Roode fan and I thought he would bring the match down with his "slowish" style of wrestling but he proved me wrong here, he done well as did everybody. This was very good match IMO. The spot where Hernadez border tossed Homice over the ring post onto Beer Money was very nice IMO. They teased a break-up from LAX (which I hope doesn't happen.) This was a very good match. ***3/4
Black Tie - Brawl and Chain Match:
Sonjay Dutt vs Jay Lethal
These guys tries soo hard to make a good match out of this stupid gimmick but couldn't pull it off. It went way to long for what it was, it was like a mix between a chain match and a bra and panties match with men, what do the TNA creative team be thinking? And I don't like pointing fingers but what goes through Vince Russo's mind? This was bad. *1/2 because they tried.
Jersey Street Fight:
Team 3D vs Cage & Rhino.
Now this is a hard one to call because I liked this match. I would have given it a ***1/2 stars but TNA done the same thing as they always do, going to the crowd. Now this can be good but not in Tag team matches, the split screen thing ruins the match, I know it gets the crowed hyped but watching it at home it doesn't look good. If you are going to book a match to go into a crowd (A tag match) keep everyone together, it would work much better IMO. But all and all, fun match. ***
Last Man Standing:
AJ Styles vs Angle
I may be over rating this match but I don't care, it was AWESOME! Everything fitted together in this match perfectly and I knew Sting would interfere and I was afraid of a stupid finish but Thank You TNA. We got a clean finish. It was a awesome match and may I say, Kurt Angle is a Wrestling Machine! They put on a great Last man Standing, well it was more of a Texas Death Match but who cares it was great. The ending just made it better, the DDT off the top actually made me go "Oh Shit!". We all know about Angles neck and him taking a bump like that was amazing. The Sting angle after it made it even better, it was just a GREAT match. MOTY candidate IMO. ****3/4
TNA World Championship:
6 Sides Of Steel with Weapons:
Pretty weak "Main event" but good match. They didnt have enough time to do anything special but they pulled out a good match for the time given which was only about 15 minutes or maybe less than that. Some good stuff in this match with a nice ending with everyone thinking Sting was about to run in, but Joe was standing with Mr. Jeff Jerretts guitar and smashed it over Bookers head. I liked it. ***
