    So this is TNA’s TV debut on Sun Sports

    Michael Shane (w/Tracy) vs. James Storm (w/Chris Harris)
    This is really good, like shockingly good. It doesn’t have much of a story just two guys doing moves and shit. But everything looked crisp and smooth. Early in the match both Harris and Tracy, get kicks out. Shane half ass works Storms neck before just forgetting about It. Storm comeback is pretty cool, at one point Tracy comes back out but she has Alex Shelley with her. The match continues to go on and Storm beats them both up before a ref bump, but the numbers catches up and Shane hits him with a superkick for the win. **1/2

    Backstage: Father Jim Mitchell is talking to Abyss, he says Abyss deserves a 1on1 title match. That’s hes never gotten, he says if he joins him he will do the politics backstage to get him the match. Just give me one chance. Abyss thinks it over.

    Earlier today Mike Tenay held a empty arena interview with Truth and Konnan, He says BG was suppose to be here but he no showed. Truth says BG gave his word, and he ain't here. Konnan says it hurts, and he says he made a mistake at Slammiversary, but BG's indecisiveness has driven a wedge here. Kip James comes on with Monty Brown and Monty does a pretty trash BG impression. They then attack 3LK from behind and Monty does the full Outlaws shtick.

    David Young vs. Shark Boy
    I don’t care, shark boy wins.

    Backstage: Fresh out the joint, J.E.DOUBLE F J.A.DOUBLE R.E.DOUBLE T. is yelling out Larry about getting his rematch, Larry said he had his title match it was in the contract. They go back and forth yelling. Larry says Abyss is up first, but also new talent is coming in.

    Samoa Joe vs. Delirious
    FUCK YEAH! JOE IN HIS PRIME. He lets Delirious do all that running around and shit before taking out his legs with a leg sweep, he then proceeds to beat the shit out of his with PRIME JOE moveset. He even applies one of the nastiest abdominal stretches I have ever seen. He beats on him for a couple of more minutes before hitting the Muscle Buster and Choke for the win. **1/2

    “Primetime” Elix Skipper vs. Christopher Daniels
    Skipper comes out of the face entrance, before running up the other side and attacking Daniels during his entrance, that’s cool. Skipper controls and beats the shit out of him for like 7 minutes before we head to a commercial. I miss the Fox time limit at the top of the screen :( Out of desperation, Daniels snaps Skipper neck over the top rope and he takes over. Mike Tenay announces at No Surrender it will be Sabin/Joe :mark: Daniels works the neck and it’s really good he has some real brutal moments, but Skippers selling is trash he would rather sell exhaustion than a man twisting your neck 69 different ways, before just not selling at all. His comeback kinda makes up for it tho, both men go back and forth trading near falls before Daniels out of nowhere applies the Koji Clutch and Skipper has no choice but to tap out. **3/4

    Raven comes down to the ring, He says he has risen from the ashes and he has endured everything faith has thrown at him. He says he fulfilled his destiny and become TNA’s worse nightmare because I AM THE NWA WORLD CHAMPION! FATHER JAMES MITCHELL COMES OUT! HE SAYS HE'S BACK! And the only thing Raven is destine for is failure. Raven says his tears of pain gives him nothing but joy, Jim says that’s might big talk for soon to be former champion and revenge is a dish best served cold………………..AND DINNER IS SERVED! Abyss comes from the other entrance but Raven sees it coming and goes on the attack. They brawl for a bit but Abyss his the black whole slam to end the show.

    3. Final Resolution – Chris Sabin vs. Petey Williams vs. AJ Styles ****
    2. Final Resolution – Team Canada vs. America’s Most Wanted ****
    1. Lockdown – AJ Styles vs. Abyss ****1/2

    PPV of the year: Final Resolution
    Really fine show for the most part outside the Ex-WCW/WWF guys stinking up the joint the rest of the card delivered, best Ultimate X match since the first one, best singles tag match in TNA history (maybe, I have to see how the AMW/Daniels/AJ matches stack up) Kash/Rhoades having this lightning in a bottle match. And Scott Hall’s theme song is on the show.

    Tag Team of the year: America’s Most Wanted
    It’s not even close, like the margin gap is insane. If they would have kept, the team or Roode/Young ad gave them constant competition then maybe but ever since they lost the titles they didn’t team again. Naturals are in the number 2 slot but they really didn’t start getting TV time until March/April. 3LK are trash, and that’s about it.

    Wrestler of the year: AJ Styles
    This has been the toughest race this award has ever had, because it’s 3 guys. AJ, Daniels and Sabin. I think if I was basing if off points and consistence of TV time Sabin would be #1 because he’s seems to be on TV almost every week and it’s solid matches, he’s had a couple of bad ones but I put those on his opponents. Daniels would be 2nd, I think he’s putting on better matches in terms of psychology, storytelling and aggression his ability to adapt and carry his side of the match has been pretty great. But, AJ Styles man. He’s a rarity but every time he’s in the ring, he does something special, with the exception of the iron man match, which I wanna must have been an off night. And the Jarrett match, well it’s a Jarrett match so I’m not blaming AJ for that dude is pumping out awesome matches. Another reason I’ve giving it to AJ is just look at the MOTYC rankings, Sabin on 5, but AJ and Daniels are tied with 7. As much as I want to tie them, AJ has given us a top three TNA match of all time. So with that I have to give it to him right now.

    Recap of Abyss attacking Raven last week, also they show Abyss choking him with a chain.

    Sean Waltman vs. Sonjay Dutt
    This is a lot better than I thought it would be, this is Waltman’s best performance so far. He plays this cocky heelish veteran who at first doesn’t take Sonjay serious so he mocks, and taunts him, but as the match goes on the backfires and Sonjay gets some shit in. However, Waltman out of desperation hits a low blow and follows with the X-Factor for the win. **1/4

    Backstage: Terry Taylor interviews Team Canada. Roode says D'Amore is in the hospital and it’s all his fault. Young says without Coach they are all screwed. Petey says he loves Scott but they are Canadians and the most elite force in wrestling. He says he is the CAPTAIN! And gets his team hype.

    Eric Young (w/Petey Williams) vs. Lance Hoyt
    EY goes above and beyond in trying to put Lance over, he bumps his ass off and makes Lance look somewhat decent. Lance ends up winning with the big boot. After the match; the rest of Team Canada comes out and they gang up on Hoyt, but the Naturals run out to make the save. *3/4

    Backstage: Terry Taylor interviews Monty Brown, Monty talks about how dominate he was in KOTM but the disrespect that Abyss is getting the title show above him, but that’s okay he’s use to that but he will get his respect and he can careless about 3LK and their problems with the Outlaw but as soon at they put their hands on him they will have a problem.

    Abyss (w/Father James Mitchell) vs. Sonny Siaki (w/Apollo)
    I still have no idea why this murderer still has a job, he is god awful. Abyss lets him get way too much shit in before hitting the Black Hole Slam for the win. Bad, really bad. After the match; Abyss grabs the chain but Apollo comes in with a chair. Abyss backs off but dumbass Apollo turns his back to Abyss before he even leaves the ring. Abyss begins beating him down until Raven comes down and hits him with the DDT. He then wraps the chain around Abyss’ neck and pulls him into a chair, just like he did to AJ :mark: Raven then gets on the mic and challenges Abyss to a Dog Collar/No Surrender match, no I quit, no throwing in the towel only way to win is pinfall.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! FOR FUCK SAKE NOT ONLY IS SIMOD DIAMOND HERE BUT HE HAS MOTHERFUCKING TRYTAN WITH HIM! GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!

    Simon Diamond & Trytan vs. America’s Most Wanted
    Poor AMW they deserve so much better, not only do they have to wrestle two of the worse wrestlers in all of wrestling but Jarrett comes out and rants on commentary about “NEW TALENT” and “NOT HAVING A TITLE MATCH”. The camera pans on him the entire time smh. Storm hits a superkick on SD for he win. Trytan’s record is now 1-2-1 :lmao:lmao

    Backstage: Terry Taylor interviews Chris Daniels; Daniels says he is the symbol of excellence. He’s beaten Mexico’s greatest and 2 of the best American’s he says he has beaten the world. Petey comes over and says he hasn’t beaten him. Daniels says Petey is too afraid to face him and says Lance is no Daniels. Petey then suckers Daniels into giving him a title match at the PPV.

    Alex Shelley vs. AJ Styles
    Really fucking good, AJ dominates in the early going and Shelley bumps his ass off for him but he manages to weather the early storm before poking AJ in the eyes. He then hits a flatliner into the middle turnbuckle and begins to take over. Shelley puts on one of his Shelley submission exhibitions and he’s in the ring with the perfect guy in AJ who sells the pain and of being tied up like a pretzel better than anyone. The only bad thing about Shelley’s style is it’s a lot of flashy cooling looking holds but he randomly breaks them up to go into the next sequence. AJ connects with this stiff punch and Shelley’s nose is bleeding badly. Waltman comes out and joins commentary, and stumbles all over his words. Shelley hits a reverse pedigree for two. AJ then tries a jackknifee pin but gets two, he then rolls back and hits the Styles Clash for the win. After the match; Waltman comes in and they get face to face. BUT FUCKIN’ JERRY OLD ASS LYNN RUNS FROM THE BACK TO BREAK UP THEM TALKING. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!FUCK OFF LYNN. ***

    David Young vs. Chris Sabin
    Standard Sabin showcase, Mike Tenay trolling the differences between David Young and Samoa Joe was great, he goes on to talk about how Joe has only lost 1 match in two years to where David has only won 1 match in 2 years. After a pretty meh, DY control period Sabin hits the cradle shock for the win. After the match; Joe runs out and knees the shit out of Sabin before locking in the Coquina Clutch before leaving.

    Backstage: Terry Tayor is with AJ Styles and Larry, AJ says he accepts Waltman screwing him over in KOTM but last week was enough. He wants Waltman at the PPV. Larry rambles on a little bit before booking the match, with Jerry Lynn as the special ref.

    Backstage: Terry Taylor is with AMW, Harris says they have proven they are the best tag team in wrestling, he says Shelley and Shane are next. Storm says Shelley and Shane run around like the king turds of poo poo town, but if they want a fight, they're open 24/7/365 and twice on Sunday.

    Mikey Batts vs. Zach Gowen
    This happens for about a minute or 2 until Jarrett comes out and demands the bell be rung, Jarrett forces them to stop the match. Mikey leaves but Gowen doesn’t Jeff beats his cripped ass. FUCK YEAH JEFF! Jeff says if anybody of the “NEW TALENT” that comes in without his knowledge they will be in trouble, Jeff says he will be at the PPV and will take his match and his belt back.

    [​IMG]

    Samoa Joe vs. “Primetime” Elix Skipper vs. Shark Boy
    I would much prefer Joe/Skipper or Joe/Sharky. Another really good prime Joe showcase, we get quite a few 3 men moves, e.g. tower of doom spot or Joe German Suplexing both men at once. A great spot is Skipper goes to walk the ropes but Joe dropkicks the ropes sending him to the floor, which allows Joe to hit the muscle buster and the choke on Shark boy for the win. **

    Christopher Daniels joins commentary.

    Petey Williams vs. Amazing Red
    Daniels killing Petey on commentary was great he constantly hammers that Petey is nothing but a one hit wonder, all he has is the Canadian Destroyer. Petey works the neck and red doesn’t sell, then Petey just randomly works the back and red doesn’t sell that. Red’s comeback is pretty much no existent and missed some move off the top which allows Petey to hit the Canadian Destroyer……….Oh but he’s not done as he locks in the most Canadian move ever the Sharpshooter :lmao way to show you’re not a one move wonder :lmao

    Backstage: Monty Brown cuts another promo on 3LK he then challenges them to face him and the Outlaw at the PPV. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Monty you are above this :(

    Abyss (w/Father Jim Mitchell) vs. Cassidy Riley
    Cool Abyss Squash, much better than lasts weeks’ bullshit. After the match; Abyss goes to attack Cassidy but Raven makes the save. He has the chair wrapped around his arm and clotheslines him to the floor. But Raven is distracted by Father Jim which allows Abyss to crotch Raven into the ringpost. Abyss then wraps the chain around Raven's neck and begins hanging him over the middle rope. Before security comes down to break it up.

    Team Canada (Bobby Roode, Eric Young & A-1) vs. Lance Hoyt & The Naturals (w/Jimmy Hart)
    This is like wrestling 101, faces dominate early but we get the ref distraction which allows the heels to triple team….babyface, in this case, it’s Andy Douglas and the Canadians take over. A-1 is still god awful and for some reason, he does the majority of the heel heat. Lance has a cool hot tag, the match breaks down and Lance hits Roode with a big boot for the win. After the match, Team Canada beat the face down to end the show. **

    Eric Young & Petey Williams vs. Samoa Joe & Christopher Daniels
    Joe and Daniels in matching black and blue attire :mark: Joe busting up Petey’s nose 15 seconds in makes him my favorite wrestler ever. Sorry, Benoit, Eddie, and Flair. Joe and Daniels take turn viciously just attacking the nose, tons of plan strikes, punches and just grabbing at it, which ruled. Petey must be really hurt cause this the only selling I’ve seen him do all year, EY gets a tag and the Canadians work over Daniels. It pretty good, Joe has a great hot tag, but Daniels tags himself back in. Sabin then runs out and he and Joe brawl to the back, Daniels is all alone, and Eric hits the Showtime Elbow, Petey follows up with the Destroyer for the win. **3/4

    Video package for Raven/Abyss + Jarrett.

    WHY? WHY THE FUCK IS TRYTAN AND DIAMOND STILL A THING? OH FOR FUCK SAKE THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE THEY ARE FACING SONNY AND APPOLO. FUCK THIS COMPANY! I’M NOT WATCHING BUT AT LEAST TRYTAN’S RECORD IS NOW 2-2-1 TRYTAN’S FINISH IS THE T-3 WHICH IS JUST THE F-5 :lmao:lmao:lmao

    Ron Killings and Konnan come out for their match; Tenay says BG has been missing since the PPV. Before Konnan does his gibberish on the mic. Monty and The Outlaw attack them from behind. They brawl for a bit around the ringside and to the back.

    Tenay announces Konnan/Killings vs. Monty/Outlaw at the PPV in a NoDq match.

    Shocker vs. Sonjay Dutt
    This is pretty meh, Shocker is still trash and Sonjay allows Shocker to carry the match, which makes it worse. Terrible lucha stuff by Shocker who looks slow, old and fat. He does that flashy looking cradle pin for the win.

    Backstage: Father Jim Mitchell is with Abyss, Father Jim says Raven is a fool, does he realize he will be chained to a 350lb monster and Raven will not be allowed to quit. He can do any and everything to him and he has himself to blame.

    AJ/Waltman hype video, Lynn does interviews talking about the match.

    Bobby Roode & A-1 vs. Sean Waltman & AJ Styles
    This is all right, the faces dominate the Canadians to start, and that lasts a good 4 minutes until A-1 knees AJ in the back and Roode hits a full nelson slam to take over. A-1 is still god awful, but Roode continues to show flashes of goodness. They cut the ring off and Roode works the head and neck while A-1 targets the lower back. Waltman’s hot tag is all right, he and Roode have a cool interaction. Roode ducks a spin kicks that “accidently” hits AJ. Roode then hits Waltman with a Northern Lariat for the win. After the match; AJ and Waltman argue and shove one another. AJ goes to leave and Waltman attacks him from behind, they begin fighting until bum ass old ass Lynn comes out to stop it. **1/4

    Backstage: Raven says he likes pain, and in 2 days he’s gonna beat Abyss until he wants to say “I QUIT” but can’t and will keep going until I decide to pin you. Quote the Raven ~ Nevermore.
