Countdown to Destination X
By SLAM! Wrestling Staff
On Sunday night, TNA will head to PPV once again for Destination X, with a card that can best be described as a mixed bag.
You've got what should be an entertaining main event, a couple multi-person, potential pier-sixers and a home-grown gimmick match. What more could you ask for?
Haven't we seen this before? I like all of the players here, but these huge tag matches are getting to be somewhat routine. Team Canada will interfere, Gail and Jackie will have a catfight, and the whole thing will become a big schmozz before Jarrett breaks out his guitar, but before he can get the win, Sting will take him out and help the babyface team go over.
I guess this is somehow supposed to make me want to see Team 3D vs. AMW for the titles already right? Wrong. Nor does it interest me to see Rhino/Abyss or Jarrett against... well, any of them. Killings is a bit fresher to the main event ranks, but don't forget that he's been an NWA champ. There's really no reason why some actual fresh faces aren't getting elevated here, and even less reason why a Team Canada member should not be in the mix.
It'll be an entertaining, overbooked mess. The bad guys will come out on top.
Lance Hoyt vs. Matt Bentley - Remember when Hoyt-a-mania was running wild? What happened? Bentley wins.
James Gang/Bob Armstrong vs. LAX - Wouldn't a Bob Armstrong heel turn be hilarious, especially if he came out on the next Impact all gangsta? James Gang wins.
Lance Hoyt vs. Matt Bentley - Honestly, this is looking boring to me. Sorry guys.
James Gang/Bob Armstrong vs. LAX - Why? why god, why? This is such an obvious turn that it doesn't even need to be seen on PPV - you could see it coming at least a week ahead.
Lance Hoyt vs. Matt Bentley - Hoyt's climb up the roster begins again.
