    TNA TNA Sacrifice 2008 Review

    Sacrifice
    May 11, 2008



    The big news as we open up the show is that one of the two challengers for the TNA World Title, Kurt Angle, is injured and canít compete tonight.

    The other big happening heading into this PPV is Super Eric and Kaz being stripped of the TNA Tag Titles, prompting TNA to create a Deuceís Wild tag tournament to crown new champions. Each match will be an established team (AKA a team that qualified for this tournament on iMPACT) against a Lethal Lottery team. Well, thatís just stupid.

    Team 3D vs Sting and James Storm w/Miss Jackie - Deuces Wild - First Round
    The TNA commentators didnít even bother waiting for Stingís entrance before spoiling who Stormís partner was going to be. Team 3D qualified for this match by defeating Black Reign and Rellik (Thatís killer spelled backwards). As luck will have it, Storm and Sting have recently been feuding, including working a No DQ match on go home edition of iMPACT. The story of the match is that Storm and Sting canít get along. They donít really do much though. Storm is seen bickering with Sting at the start of the match and the commentators play up how Storm is demanding to be treated as the leader of the team. After Sting gets his chance to enter the match, Storm opts to just sit down on the ring apron and enjoy a beer. Iíve seen many unlikely partner lethal lottery matches before, but this feels incredibly rushed. What especially doesnít work is the fact that Team 3D are heels. This sort of story works better when the other team, if theyíre a normal team especially, are babyfaces. The exciting action continued with Team 3D working over Sting and bringing in a table. Rather than try to help Sting, Storm instead climbs on the middle rope, cheering on Team 3D. Seeing this, Team 3D move away, allowing Sting to toss Storm through a table, deserting his partner in the process. Team 3D covers Storm, who was never tagged back into the match, to win the match. Thank god we got this ďWonderfulĒ lethal lottery match instead of something silly like a No DQ Storm vs Sting match on this PPV instead. Who would have wanted that? * Ĺ


    Christian Cage and Rhino vs Booker T and Robert Roode - Deuces Wild - First Round
    Cage and Rhino qualified for this tournament by defeating MCMG on iMPACT. Cage and Rhino had had a feud back in 2006 with the pair working an angle prior to Lockdown 2008 with Cage convincing Rhino to become friends again. As pure luck would have it, Roode and Booker T have been feuding since Bookerís TNA debut a few months back, although theyíre practically at the end of the feud now. Although it doesnít really play any role in the match, it is worth noting that in recent weeks, Booker has been showing a new attitude, transitioning into a heel. The commentators bring this up a few times, but despite being a tweener, he and Roode canít get along. Since Cage worked the majority of the match, mostly with Roode, this match was perfectly decent. Cage and Roode had a fine exchange and Booker was able to show a little aggression. It all built up to the Rhino tag and he helped clean house before avoiding Roodeís Pay Off finisher and surprising him with a Gore to get the victory. This may have hardly been worthy of being a PPV match, but it would have been a fine iMPACT match. ** ľ

    After the match, a reluctant Booker T enters the ring to shake the hands of Cage and Rhino. Booker then hangs around the ringside, taking forever before grabbing a chair and re-entering the ring to strike both Cage and Rhino, completing his heel turn. Well, that fell flat. If youíre going to do a surprise heel turn, make it something quick so itís not super obvious. It was really awkward seeing Booker climbing into the ring with a chair for a solid ten seconds with the commentators not reacting to it until it was time for Booker to actually use it.


    LAX w/Hector Guerrero vs Kip James and Matt Morgan - Deuces Wild - First Round
    LAX defeated Eric Young and Kaz on iMPACT to advance in the tournament. Frankly, Iím surprised Kip was still in TNA by May 2008. He has to be near the end of his run, right? *Goes to Wiki* Holy shit, TNA kept putting Kip on TV until the very end of 2009? Fuck, man. Meanwhile, Morgan had been in TNA for about nine months at this point, surprising me since I was thinking he probably didnít debut until around 2009. Unlike Sting/Storm and Booker/Roode, the pairing of Morgan/Kip are actually getting along. The commentators even bring up the fact that they saw Morgan and James going over strategy before the match. The appeal of this match is just how hot of a team LAX feels at this point. Homicide is hitting dives to the outside and Hernandez is holding his own as well. This was a good deal shorter than the previous two matches, so there wasnít a ton that could stand out other than LAXís popularity. Kip and Morganís teamwork would backfire as theyíd miss some sort of double team move where Kip ate a Morgan Blueprint big boot to allow LAX to pick up the victory. This would have been a fine easy victory for LAX on an episode of iMPACT, but certainly doesnít deserve to be on PPV. **

    Backstage, AJ Styles is interviewed regarding his upcoming Deuceís Wild Tag match, but heís interrupted by his boss, Kurt Angle. Angle is enraged and is convinced that Karen Angle is cheating on him with Styles. Styles claims innocence, but Angle doesnít seem convinced. I mean really, what are the chances that Karen would be cheating on Kurt with a TNA wrestler? Surely, thatíd never happen.

    AJ Styles and Super Eric vs BG James and Awesome Kong - Deuces Wild - First Round
    Letís see if this makes sense. It was back in mid April on iMPACT that AJ Styles and Tomko lost the TNA Tag Titles to Super Eric and Kaz in a three-way also involving LAX. However, Super Eric and Kaz were quickly stripped of the tag titles after Super Eric refused to reveal that he was in fact Eric Young. As a result, this stupid tournament was created. Despite the fact that TNA authority figure, Jim Cornette, didnít want Eric Young as champion, I presume, both Super Eric AND Eric Young were entered in the tournament with Young losing a qualifying match with Kaz against LAX, but Super Eric winning with Styles against Jimmy Rave and Lance Hoyt. Why is Young being rewarded when Cornette wants to prove who he really is? Better yet, if youíre going to add Super Eric and Young to qualifying matches, why not book them on opposite teams in a qualifying match? You really have to hand it to TNA. They had an incredibly stupid Deuceís Wild tournament planned, but they somehow made it even sillier with this illogical Eric Young booking. Up until the awful finish, this was fine. The entire booking of Kong was mostly showing how good she can look against the men as Styles is willing to sell for her. I do think the longer she was involved, the less positive it became because either A) She looks too strong against the men, making it seem weak for her to go back to facing women or B) When she does take moves from Super Eric, it takes away some of her monster aura. The finish though, itís a thing of beauty. Super Eric dived onto Kong on the outside, leaving Styles alone to hit what I presume is his springboard 450 Splash on James. Instead, Styles slips on the top rope and falls hard on his face. Itís easily one of the weakest botches Iíve ever seen Styles perform. Styles is clearly shaken up and James is doing his best not to laugh on camera. They called an audible to just have James pick Styles up with Styles countering with a small package to get the pinfall. Talk about a flat finish. You couldnít have at least had Young pop in with a top rope elbow drop or something? Poor AJ. * ĺ


    With that, the first round of the Deuceís Wild tournament is finished. In all four matches, the thrown together lethal lottery team ended up losing. So what was even the purpose of doing it? Replace the teams with the likes of MCMG, Rave/Hoyt, Black Reign/Rellik (Thatís killer spelled backwards), and...idk, Iím sure there was another team. At least it would have been a bigger accomplishment for the eventual winner to win three normal tag matches in one night against three established teams.

    Terrordome Match - #1 Contenderís Match
    Participants include Curry Man, Sonjay Dutt, Consequences Creed, Shark Boy, Jimmy Rave, Kaz, MCMG, Johnny Devine, and Jay Lethal as Black Machismo. Originally, this match is just for a #1 contenderís match for the X-Division Title, but due to Kurt Angleís injury, it was ruled that the winner of this match would also go onto the main event tonightís PPV to challenge for the TNA World Title against Scott Steiner and Samoa Joe. A Terrordome Match is that stupid TNA creation with the large red cage where the objection is to climb through the tiny hole at the top of the cage to escape. It was on the infamous Jan 4, 2010 episode of iMPACT that Homicide struggled for a good five minutes while Jeff Hardy made his big return to the company. Right away, the biggest problem with this match is that the cage is this giant red mess. Not only is it large metal bars for the cage, similarly to the old blue cage that the WWE had, but to add support, thereís extra bars, making it look as if thereís an inner cage, leaving even less area to see inside of the cage. You just canít watch the match from the hard camera. Instead, the only decent shots are at rinside, shooting through the small holes. The most unlucky person in the entire match is the referee strapped to the very top of the cage so that he can monitor who escaped the cage first, if it comes down to two wrestlers escaping at the same time. Yet, the hole is so small that itís difficult enough for one person to get through it, let alone more than one. They forced this poor bastard to be staring down from the very top of the Terrordome for no good reason! The match is awful. You canít see shit from the hard camera. When you do see action from the other cameras, itís literally just random spots thanks to ten men being locked in a cage together. Somehow, the crowd is really into the match, which I donít understand at all since the camera view has to be even worse for them. Itís eventually Kaz that finds himself nearing the hole, but a new problem with the cage comes to light. The top of the cage is long strips of basically triangular openings instead of keeping the square design. Kaz is already having to climb upside down up into a hole, but now he has to do so without the proper bar placement. To give credit to Kaz, he managed to accomplish it far quicker than Homicide did. What a clusterfuck. The worst part? TNA officials saw this match and decided to run it again at least two other times including Bound for Glory 2008 and Jan 4th iMPACT (Then known as Steel Asylum)! God, TNA sucks. ľ *


    Team 3D vs Christian Cage and Rhino - Deuces Wild - Second Round
    Since Cage and Rhino are going into this match following the chair assault by Booker T, they played up those injuries, allowing Ray and Devon to dominate the match. In fact, Iíll go as far to say that this is a smartly booked match. I didnít think TNA had it in them. As dickish as Team 3D are by using their unfair advantage to control the match, their heel work gets even better after Cage and Rhino are finally able to fight back and are giving Team 3D a challenge with 3D calling out their buddy, Johnny Devine. Devine comes out with a kendo stick, which he gives to Ray. Devine waits for his moment to jump into the ring to distract Rhino and the referee, when Rhino had the match won for his team, allowing Ray to jump into the ring and blast Rhino in the head with Devineís kendo stick to steal the victory. It wasnít great or anything, but it was very solid wrestling with both teams coming out looking strong. ***

    LAX w/Hector Guerrero vs AJ Styles and Super Eric - Deuces Wild - Second Round
    On paper, this certainly has potential. For the most part, it was pretty good although it would suffer from another AJ Styles botch at the finish to ruin it a little. The commentators randomly start talking about Booker T at the start of the match, acting as if he played such a huge role in affecting the tournament even though A) Heís been eliminated in the first round and B) Although he did hurt Cage/Rhino, youíre completely ignoring the fact that Brother Ray used Johnny Devineís kendo stick to set up the finish. I thought Young looked better in this match, managing to hit all of his dives nicely unlike in the first match where he attempted a senton bomb and barely even touched the person he was hitting it on, but of course that was a match where Super Eric could have botched anything and it wouldnít have stood out thanks to Styles. Speaking of botches, thereís Stylesí second botch of the night. With LAXís valet, Salinas, distracting the referee, Hector jumped into the ring to reverse a small package, allowing Homicide to pin Styles. The only problem is that AJís shoulders were clearly not on the mat for a single moment during the cover. The commentators didnít mention it, so it wasnít played up as some sort of screw job finish. It was just a really noticable failure of a cover. The match was okay though. ** Ĺ

    TNA Knockouts Makeover Battle Royal - #1 Contenderís Match
    Since the Knockouts Champion, Awesome Kong, was involved in the Deuces Wild tournament, weíre instead getting a #1 contenderís match on this PPV. Participants include Jacqueline, Traci Brooks, Salinas, Rhaka Khan, Velvet Sky, Angelina Love, Christy Hemme, Gail Kim, Roxxi Laveaux, and ODB. Since this is TNA, they just canít have a simple battle royal to name a new #1 contender. Oh no. The first stage is the normal battle royal, but once it gets down to the final two, the remaining women battle in a ladder match. The winner gets the title shot while the loser gets her head shaven. BUT WAIT, THEREíS MORE! Gail Kim, for whatever reason, is exempt from the head shaven rule, so if she makes it to the final two and loses the ladder match, then the very last woman eliminated from the battle royal must have her head shaven instead. Simple, right? Thereís an odd call by the commentator during the entrances when they tried to hype Jacqueline, claiming that other than Gail Kim, she has a lot more experience than the other women in the match. This comes across as strange since with the exception of Rhaka Khan, nearly everyone has been wrestling for the same amount of time as Gail Kim. In fact, itís Jacqueline that has a load more experience than Gail Kim, having been competing since the 80s. Itís a weird in that TNA is seemingly incapable of hyping someone without also making the praise about Gail Kim, whether it fits or not. This first segment featuring just the battle royal is completely forgettable. Thereís the usual issues like the commentators being unsure if an elimination without going over the top rope will count. Thereís a couple of other botches, but itís kept short and itís mostly inoffensive. It ends up coming down to Gail Kim and Roxxi, forcing Angelina Sky to remain at ringside since Kim canít have her head shaven. At this point, Iím wondering why we didnít just get a #1 contenderís ladder match between Roxxi and Kim instead of everything else because that actually stands out as being something special. If there is one issue with the ladder, itís that TNA decided to let them use a normal size one that theyíd use in the menís matches and the women noticeably have difficulty moving the ladder around. Hook them up with a smaller one so they can just focus on hitting spots! To Kim and Roxxiís credit, they did their best to work a normal ladder match, both taking bumps on the ladder. Poor Roxxi is legitimately busted open because of one such bump. This is also TNA, so they canít have Kim and Roxxi just going out there and having a fun ladder match. Instead, the Beautiful People interferes multiple times, doing their best to help Kim win so that Love doesnít have to have her head shaven. Not only is this interference messing with the quality of the ladder match, but itís making Kim look like an awful babyface. Kimís supposed to be the #1 Knockout babyface, yet her lack of care that her buddy, Roxxi, is being screwed over makes Kim look very unlikable. In the end, itís thanks to all of that interference that Kim is easily able to climb up the ladder and retrieve the contract to win the match. Congrats, you won a three-on-one handicap match. Arenít you special? Considering Roxxiís immense popularity on this night, TNA had a legitimate opportunity to create a new top star on this night and make it feel like a huge moment, but they dropped the ball hard. **


    After the match, Kim finally decides to pretend to be a babyface, fighting The Beautiful People some before Roxxi is forced to get her head shaven. The crowd is so into this storyline that they loudly chant ďFire Russo!Ē and ďBullshit!Ē This is not a fun moment. Roxxi is all bloody, crying, and now getting her head shaved, and yet this is supposed to be as part of an entertainment show? Itís when you go back and re-watch these old shows that you realize that even with it being very well known that TNA was tone deaf, it still comes across as shocking at how utterly tone deaf they really were.

    Team 3D vs LAX w/Hector Guerrero - Deuces Wild - Finals - TNA Tag Titles
    The fact that this is TNA, you kinda have to give them credit for having the smarts to have the tournament come down to two important teams rather than have the tag titles be up for grabs between the likes of say...BG James/Awesome Kong vs Sting/James Storm. Keep in mind, this is the same titles that in the last year has been held by such important teams as Samoa Joe (By himself), Kurt Angle (By himself), and Ron Killings/Pacman Jones (With Jones legally being unable to get physical). This match was pretty fun. There was a big brawl outside of the ring before the bell. Once the match officially started after everyone entered the ring, the pace was kept fast with both teams looking strong. Thereís a nice portion where Johnny Devine ran out to seemingly interfere yet again by pulling out a table, but Hector is there to thwart any screw jobs. For his trouble, Devine is tossed on the table with Guerrero nailing a double stomp from the top rope through the table. There is some awkwardness as Team 3D nailed their modified 3D (The one where Devon delivers a neckbreaker), but the referee refused to count. I presume itís because Homicide wasnít the legal man, but itís not as if that prevented any three counts already tonight and the commentators didnít even know what was happening. Despite this wonkiness, they managed to pull me back into the match before the end as LAX managed to hit their Border Toss/Frog Splash counter to pick up the victory to become the NEW TNA Tag Champions. Good call. On this night, no one else should have won this tournament other than LAX. ***


    Samoa Joe © vs Scott Steiner w/Petey Williams and Rhaka Khan vs Kaz - TNA World Title
    Why exactly is Kaz even in this match? Itís not as if Angle absolutely had to be replaced since this could have just been made into an one-on-one match. Throwing Kaz in as a last minute replacement only makes sense when you either plan on giving him the title or at least are intending to have him shine. Spoiler, neither ends up happening. In fact, part of Kazís job in the match is to be Joeís personal bitch. If Joe isnít countering any of Kazís attempts at offense, heís flat out avoiding them. This is supposed to be a huge night for Kaz, but itís actually the start of his sharp drop down the ladder. Following this match, heíd start jobbing a lot, including at Slammiversary in his X-Division Title shot that he earned in the Terrordome. Before the end of the summer, Kaz would be removed from TV for several months before returning as Suicide. I realize Kazarian isnít always the most popular guy, but TNA was putting some solid effort behind him in this last year only to have it mean absolutely nothing. Speaking of things that meant nothing, all throughout the show were backstage segments focusing on Scott Steiner hanging out with Rick Steiner and Samoa Joeís mentor, Kevin Nash. This created a story for this match, how are Rick and Nash going to affect this match? Can Joe actually trust Nash or will Nash screw him over? The answer is that neither Rick nor Nash even show up at all in this match. So why did the viewers have to endure so many segments building up this story if nothing was going to come about it? Despite those annoyances, I enjoyed this. Steiner surprisingly didnít drag the match down. He even busted out a super rare Frankensteiner while Kaz was sitting on the top turnbuckle. Although he wasnít meant to be the star, Kaz managed to bust out some good looking spots...when he wasnít being punked out by Joe. Steinersí lackies, Khan and Williams both briefly interfered, even though it didnít result in much. The biggest piece of luck Steiner had was Joe attempting a dive to the outside, only to be smacked in the side of the face with a lead pipe. Ultimately, itís Big Poppa Pump shoving Kazarian off of the top rope to crash and burn on the outside that allowed Joe to roll back in and deliver a Muscle Buster to Steiner for the victory. A pretty decent first PPV title defense for Joe. ***


    Overall
    To be honest, Iím actually feeling a bit positive about this show. Mind you, itís not because itís actually a good show, but rather I went into this PPV expecting Sacrifice 2008 to be the clear contender for worst PPV of the year. It wasnít this colossial failure that it looked like on PPV. Thatís not to say it doesnít have itís fair share of failures though. The lethal lottery aspect of the Deuces Wild tournament was a total mess. Not only did none of the four lethal lottery teams win a single match, but they were a clear negative to the tournament seeing as the matches got noticely better starting in the semi-finals. Wiping out the first round could have greatly helped out the PPV thanks to the other matches that could have been added such as Sting/Storm in a No DQ, a Kong Knockouts Title defense, and something for Robert Roode. The womenís battle royal was a glimpse of possible TNA doing something amazing, but in reality was a shining example of TNA fucking up so terribly bad. Much like Kazarian, Roxxi was never given a proper oppuninity to gain something worthwhile after this night. Considering the fact that Gail Kim would end up losing her Knockouts Title match before the next PPV thanks to interference from The Beautiful People, it seems senseless to even book Roxxi to lose in the first place. The X-Division match was one of the worst gimmick matches in TNA history if for no other reason than TNAís failure to recognize that youíre not going to be able to see inside of that red mess. Itíd be one thing if Kaz used his victory to do something great, but heíd just use his victory to lose at the next few PPVs. Itís also fair to bring up the fact that one of TNAís top talents, AJ Styles, had awful luck when it came to the finishes of his two matches. For the positives of this PPV, both the semi-finals and finals of the tag tournament were pretty good. After months of very questionable booking for the tag team division, things are finally back on track with things only getting better with Beer Money about to be put together and MCMG receiving a push. The main event was better than I expected as well. Sacrifice 2008 isnít a show thatís worth going out of your way to watch, but itís not one of the worst ever PPVs like I originally expected. So thatís...something? Considering ROH had a PPV this same month, I suspect Sacrifice 2008 is only the third best PPV of the month.

    Re: TNA Sacrifice 2008 Review

    How did you go that whole review without mentioning the infamous Scott Steiner promo which is the only thing I'd imagine anyone associates this PPV with.

    The Lethal Lottery idea only works if every team in the competition has been thrown together at the last minute so there's no time to talk strategy, there's a level playing field for everyone and there's a good enough incentive for all these teams who hate each other to work together for the greater good of success and money. When you throw together two random people against say a Team 3D who have been a decorated tag team for over a decade at that point, you can't put anyone else over but the established tag team otherwise you're killing their credibility.

    That has to be a contender for AJ's worst ever match I'd of thought.

    It's pretty wild when you look at the turnaround of wrestlers here. 10 years later and only Scott Steiner and Petey Williams still wrestle for the company that are on this show and they have had big gaps not working for them during that time (there's Dutt, but he's more backstage now). Meanwhile when I look at the May 2008 PPV for WWE, Judgement Day 2008, WWE despite signing everyone under the sun still have have 7 wrestlers still going today (Cena, Miz, Kane, Mickie, Jeff Hardy, Triple H and Orton), 8 if you include Jericho. Also WWE have used 15 of the wrestlers on this show in the years that followed.

    Oh, was that stupid math promo for this match? Keep in mind, that promo was done on iMPACT and not on the PPV. So it's not as if I saw it during this PPV.

    The Lethal Lottery idea only works if every team in the competition has been thrown together at the last minute so there's no time to talk strategy, there's a level playing field for everyone and there's a good enough incentive for all these teams who hate each other to work together for the greater good of success and money.

    There's a lot of ways to potentially make a Lethal Lottery work, but yeah, having half of the teams be regular teams (Or whatever the fuck Styles/Young were supposed to be) against thrown together teams isn't the way to go. Normally, when you throw an established team together in Lethal Lottery, it's not really a big deal since it's just one match. Looking back, TNA could have thrown a lowcard team on the PPV to be the one established team defeated. Like Rave/Hoyt for example. It's difficult to hurt them as a team when they already mean nothing, especially if you put them against a thrown together team like Styles and Young.

    For a gimmick that should be relatively simple, the vast majority of the time, Lethal Lottery ended up being a failure. The one time when it actually came off being smartly booked was actually by CHIKARA as they used the random drawings to put Lince Dorado and Jimmy Olsen together, having them win the tournament, and realizing that there was enough teamwork there to create the Future is Now trio with Ricochet. I don't know why these other companies have never viewed Lethal Lottery as a chance to create a new team and immediately give them an accomplishment.

    That has to be a contender for AJ's worst ever match I'd of thought.
    Nah, nothing could be as insufferable as his hour long match with Daniels from Jason Takes PWG.

    It's pretty wild when you look at the turnaround of wrestlers here. 10 years later and only Scott Steiner and Petey Williams still wrestle for the company that are on this show and they have had big gaps not working for them during that time (there's Dutt, but he's more backstage now).

Also WWE have used 15 of the wrestlers on this show in the years that followed.
    I really don't think it's as wild as you may think. The WWE keeping so many guys for a long time is actually a new thing. Comparing the roster from May 1998's PPV of Over the Edge and comparing it to the May 2008 PPV of Judgment Day, and there's I think four wrestlers from the Over the Edge show that were still wrestling for the WWE come May 2008 (Funaki, Mark Henry, Kane, and Triple H). Go back ten years earlier with 1988 and 1998 and you have zero unless you want to get very lenient and count the likes of HBK and Jacques Rougeau with Michaels only coming in later in the year and Jacques being away from the company for a handful of years. There was a time when reaching ten years seemed like such a big deal to me and now it's practically nothing.

    That piece of art is in fact the official poster (Although not used for the DVD cover). In fact, if you were at the PPV, you could have nabbed one of these bad boys:

    Re: TNA Sacrifice 2008 Review

    Yeah TNA in 2008 is such a hazy thing to remember for me. I do remember the LAX vs Team 3D being really a hot of a feud especially when Konnan started to have the guys deface the American Flag during Shows getting that heat. I remember a Segment during Impact one week with LAX having their gang troops coming to mug Devon and Bubba Ray and being saved by Team 3D's joint family coming with the clutch save. I agree TNA dropped the ball with the Number One Contendership with the Knockouts, it's one of those times and it kept more often when they thought too much about the booking of this Match, it could of been done so much easier with the talent they had at the time.

I remember a Segment during Impact one week with LAX having their gang troops coming to mug Devon and Bubba Ray and being saved by Team 3D's joint family coming with the clutch save. I agree TNA dropped the ball with the Number One Contendership with the Knockouts, it's one of those times and it kept more often when they thought too much about the booking of this Match, it could of been done so much easier with the talent they had at the time.
    That was 2007. Konnan hadn't been in TNA for a good nine months by time this show rolled around.
