Final Thoughts: I had very high hopes for this show with all the praise it had gotten, but to me I was slightly disappointed. Don’t get me wrong the show was great, but it just lacked very good midcard matches. Homicide/Red was probably the only midcard match that was fun to watch and got me excited for the show. Kong/Tara was really good for a Knockouts match, but at times it was just awkward. The 2 tag team matches were good, but it wasn’t something that had me going the whole match. Jesus was Steiner/Lashley God-awful. This match was an epic fail and it wasn’t the last horrible they had (see: Final Resolution.) Wolfe/Angle was great, but overrated. Main event was just amazing and I loved all the sick spots Styles did. I really recommend this show, but the only way to buy it is through the Cross The Line Triple Threat pack. Therefore, I will be reviewing the other 2 shows, Final Resolution & Against All Odds.
