HEIDENREICH Posted October 30, 2006 Share Posted October 30, 2006 Ето една статия където Анди Кларк сравнява Ресълмания и Баунда.Мойта позиция е ,че и двета шоута станаха добри,но не велики специално РЕСЪЛМАНИЯ 22 на карта изглеждаше ужасно,но няколко мача я спасиха(Фоли-Едж,Мики -Триш,Сина-Трите Хикса) и не стана най-слабата мания в историята(тази чест за мен е за 15) ,но е и далеч от 20 и 21 да не говорим за класики като 10 и х-7. За Баунда съм чел само ревюта доколкото съм запознат отборния мач е бил най-добър в това шоу,мейн ивента е бил добър особено но селването на удара с китарата,но много хора ги подразни новия вид на Стинг.Това бе моето мнение а сега статийката. WrestleMania 22 vs. Bound For Glory 2006 Last week I told you that I would compare how Bound For Glory matched up with WrestleMania 22, as they are supposed to be comparable events. I struggled with coming up with a really good tangible way to compare them. I decided that since TNA used the quintuple main event formula that WWE has adopted the past few years for WrestleMania, I thought I could compare their five main events against one another. Perhaps this isn't the best method to compare them head to head, but we'll see how it goes. WWE Title Match: John Cena© vs. Triple H Vs. NWA World Heavyweight Title, Title vs. Career Match: Jeff Jarrett© vs. Sting; Special Enforcer: Kurt Angle This is a pretty good match to compare against one another. Neither match was a workrate dream, but both were big entertainment spectacles. I would have to say that there was more of a match between Triple H and Cena than there was at BFG, and the crowd was much more responsive, so WWE gets my vote for the main event. Edge: WrestleMania 22 Score: WrestleMania: 1, Bound For Glory: 0 World Heavyweight Title, Triple Threat Match: Kurt Angle© vs. Randy Orton vs. Rey Mysterio Vs. NWA World Tag Team Title, Six Sides of Steel Match: AJ Styles & Christopher Daniels© vs. LAX Here, WrestleMania had the moment, but Bound For Glory had the match. Rey Mysterio winning the World Heavyweight Title was a great WrestleMania moment, but the match was much too short to be anything memorable. Bound For Glory on the other hand had the big blowoff match to their hottest feud of the year, and it was a MOTY candidate to boot. BFG gets the nod. Edge: Bound For Glory Score: WrestleMania: 1, Bound For Glory 1 No Holds Barred Match: Shawn Michaels vs. Vince McMahon Vs. 8-Mile Street Fight: Rhino vs. Christian Cage I have a feeling that my opinion here differs than most people. The 8-Mile Street Fight was a nice brawl, but HBK-Vince was that overbooked, violent, entertaining mess that Vince always manages to pull off. Each feud was just as vicious, even though the Rhino-Cage feud took up about a quarter of the time. My vote goes to WrestleMania. Edge: WrestleMania Score: WrestleMania: 2, Bound For Glory: 1 Casket Match: Undertaker vs. Mark Henry Vs. X-Division Title Match: Senshi© vs. Chris Sabin This isn't a tough one at all. The Casket Match was largely forgettable outside of Taker's big leap over the top rope, while Senshi-Sabin was one of the best matches on the card. Easy decision here. Edge: Bound For Glory Score: WrestleMania: 2, Bound For Glory: 2 Hardcore Match: Edge vs. Mick Foley Vs. Monster's Ball Match: Samoa Joe vs. Abyss vs. Raven vs. Brother Runt; Guest Referee: Jake "The Snake" Roberts And now for the deciding vote. I enjoyed Monster's Ball a lot, but there really is no comparison to the Edge-Foley Hardcore Match. This is many people's MOTY, and while I don't agree with that assessment, it was one of the top matches. Monster's Ball was a nice addition to the PPV, but Edge-Foley definitely win out. Edge: WrestleMania Final Score: WrestleMania: 3, Bound For Glory: 2 So WrestleMania wins out as far as match quality in their main events goes, but barely. I suspect many people would choose the 8-Mile Street Fight over the No Holds Barred Match and just as easily switch the decision the other way. As for the undercards, it's a bit of a wash. I think the Money in the Bank Match from WrestleMania trumps anything on the BFG undercard, but Mania also had the Playboy Evening Gown Match and the Boogeyman vs. Booker T & Sharmell Handicap Match. TNA at least put their crap on the pre-show. If I were looking at this without doing a head to head comparison I would say unequivocally that WrestleMania was the better show, but I think it's a big step forward by TNA to even be able to compare. А за TNA феновете ето и мнението на автора за мачовете на Bound For Glory да видите ,че съм пич Robert Roode vs. Lance Hoyt OK, so this was on the pre-show so I shouldn't be too hard on it. But guess what? They made a relatively big deal out of it (for a pre-show match) leading up to the show, so I will too. Where to begin? Most every other person that has covered this match has already pointed out how anti-climactic adding Traci ad Roode's manager was, so I really don't need to get into depth on that one. Then there is the name change to "Robert Roode." I think that's a bit hokey myself, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. Then there is the issue of his lame-ass finisher. I never really liked the Lariat that match, but it sure beats the Generic Heel #2 move that is the Roll the Dice. There is a certain bit of irony in the fact that it is called "The Payoff." Next there is the issue of the match sucking, something I'm not really blaming Lance Hoyt for. I'll be honest, I haven't really seen anything special from Roode. I know everyone thinks he is a breakout star, but I don't see it. He followed up a longwinded and boring promo, with a longer-than-it-needed-to-be and boring match. Let me also ask the question, why the hell was Ron Killings not on the card? Freaking A1 and Norman Smiley get on the card and a former two-time NWA World Champion is relegated saving his tag team partner on the pre-show? Would it really have been that hard to put him in the K.N.O.I.X.G.B.R.F.B.F.G.? Kevin Nash Open Invitational X-Division Gauntlet Battle Royal for Bound For Glory: Austin Starr vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Maverick Matt vs. Jay Lethal vs. A1 vs. Zach Gowen vs. Kazarian vs. Sirelda vs. Shark Boy vs. Alex Shelley vs. D-Ray 3000 vs. Johnny Devine vs. "Prime Time" Elix Skipper vs. Short Sleeve Sampson vs. Norman Smiley vs. Petey Williams vs. Mark "Slick" Johnson And now on to said match. I enjoyed this match and thought it was a good bit of fun. It managed to both mock and embrace the X-Division, did something useful with Austin Starr's return/debut, and paid tribute to some of TNA's past with a bit of comedy. It was great seeing D-Ray 3000 and I was hoping there would be a confrontation between him and Norman Smiley as to who was Shark Boy's better tag partner. Speaking of Norman, all the people on the forums should be pleased, he actually made it onto the biggest show of the year. Zach Gowen is slowly starting to grow on me, and I actually thought Sirelda's appearance was cool. A year ago she was introduced on the pre-show as the Gutcheck winner, this year she's in a match. I swear they're going to have to turn Petey Williams face if they continue to go to different cities, because he gets a massive pop just because everyone loves the Canadian Destroyer. Four Corners Tag Team Match: The Naturals vs. Team 3D vs. James Gang vs. America's Most Wanted I have rather mixed emotions on if this match should have been on the card as it was. I like the fact that all four teams had something to do. I hated the fact that they had No. 1 Contender's for after BFG. I think a big WrestleMania-like show should be self-contained, and not draw focus to after the show. That being said, this match seemed like it needed to have The Naturals No. 1 Contender spot on the line to mean something. They were pretty screwed either way booking wise, I felt. The match itself was pretty good, if a bit short, and I can't help but think storyline wise it would have been better as two separate matches. Monster's Ball Match: Samoa Joe vs. Abyss vs. Raven vs. Brother Runt; Guest Referee: Jake "The Snake" Roberts I think my hopes may have been too high for this match. It was good, no doubt, and one of my favorites of the evening, but I really thought it could have been much better. The action was solid, but it wasn't quite up to par with last year's match. I was really hoping Joe would choke out Abyss instead of going after Raven, but it was all good. Of course I have to mention the blown camera angle on the big Abyss bump. That was absolutely inexcusable. My Dad was watching the match with me at the time, and its stuff like that that turns away casual viewers that only know WWE. Say what you will about Vince and Co. but they at least have their presentation down. I enjoyed the match as a whole though, and definitely felt that it should be part of the show. Loser Gets Fired Match: Larry Zybsko vs. Eric Young Everyone on the net is down on this match for being on the biggest show of the year, but I thought it was a perfect fit. Eric Young deserved to be on the card as he has been a pretty key figure over the last several months, and he had the popularity to back it up. Sure, they could have thrown him into the Battle Royal, but that would have been a waste. His whole deal was that he was afraid of being fired, and Larry Z has been on the verge of getting fired since Cornette came around. This was a perfect way to evolve Eric and to get rid of Larry Z. It's not like the match was that long, even if the stalling, so I had no problem with it at all. Kurt Angle & Samoa Joe fight again The segment was OK as Angle and Joe have gotten their brawling down pretty well, but I have some serious issues with it. First of all, I hated the fact that they practically said, "Wait till next month!" I was afraid that Cornette was actually going to book the match for the next show when he came out, but fortunately he didn't. My biggest issue is this: Can anybody tell me why they blew the big confrontation on Impact? I mean, they could have done practically the same thing on the PPV, and added an extra buzz to the show. Have Cornette come out to get the belt back from Joe before the main event then debut Kurt Angle there to get it back. Jarrett sneaks out during the melee and gets the belt for later, Angle and Joe get pulled apart, and Joe gets removed from the building so as to not interfere later. Instead they give away the first confrontation between Angel and Joe on Impact and then just have a regular brawl on the show. This was a wasted opportunity to help make BFG even bigger that I think TNA should have capitalized on. X-Division Title Match: Senshi© vs. Chris Sabin This match was just as good as their match at No Surrender and better do to the finish. There were a couple of nice nearfalls at the end, and I'm glad they gave them time to showcase their abilities. Unlike many of the latest X-Division Title Matches the past few months, this actually seemed like a big match. I was a bit surprised at the split response of the crowd, but I guess a lot of people aren't crazy about Sabin. The finish could have been executed better, maybe with a rollup instead of a small package, but overall it was a hell of a match. 8-Mile Street Fight: Rhino vs. Christian Cage Much like their match at No Surrender, I was a bit underwhelmed. It was a pretty decent brawl, and the finish was certainly unique, though. I've enjoyed the feud between these to, although I was hoping that this would have been the blowoff. Even though I would have figured Rhino would win, it was a nice surprise to see Cage pull out the victory. NWA World Tag Team Title, Six Sides of Steel Match: AJ Styles & Christopher Daniels© vs. LAX This was an insane, insane match. Hell, if this were any other show it probably would have been in the main event. I think I enjoyed it more than their Ultimate X Match, and I really liked that one as well. AJ's crossbody off the top was a thing of beauty, and it was crazy seeing Hernandez try and fly. The action was wicked throughout, and it was cool to see them use the coathanger that Homicide used in ROH. That Gringo Killa to AJ at the end was sick looking, I actually cringed when I saw it. This was another MOTY candidate from these two teams, this was a hell of a way to end their feud. NWA World Heavyweight Title, Title vs. Career Match: Jeff Jarrett© vs. Sting; Special Enforcer: Kurt Angle Was this match cutting edge? No. Did it really represent the "new face in professional wrestling?" Probably not. But this is how TNA needed to end their big show. This match had a big feel to it from the beginning, something their Bound For Glory show last year lacked. Sting's new look was impressive, and I still couldn't get over seeing Sting and Kurt Angle face to face. The only thing I didn't like was how Angle got involved in the match. You should never tease the fact that both of your main events could be counted out after a double crossbody block. If TNA has one thing in it's favor it's that it isn't as nationally known as WWE so the Olympic committee probably won't come after them for the use of the "Olympic Slam." On the whole I really dug this show. Last year they had two blowaway matches on the card but it didn't have a big feel to it. This year they had one blowaway match and a bunch of really good, entertaining matches and a definite aura to it. TNA did a good job with their biggest show of the year, and while it may not have been perfect, it is a great step in the right direction.
