TNA Lockdown 2007 is a very underrated PPV. It has been panned by many wrestling fans and reviewers based on the fact that there were 2 underwhelming matches on the card.
Much like 1 or 2 great matches do not make a PPV as a whole great, 1 or 2 bad matches do not make a PPV as a whole bad.
Lets take a look at the card:
X Division Championship- Xcape Match
This was a great opener with Sabin retaining the X Title against 5 other X Division stars. It got the show off to a hot start, and got the crowd warmed up, exactly what openers are meant to do.
Robert Roode def Petey Williams
This match was nothing special, but it had decent pacing and good wrestling.
Gail Kim def Jackie Moore
This was a chance for TNA to show the world that they could deliver with Womens wrestling. This certainly wasn't as good as a Mickie James, Lita, or Trish match, but it was very intense and had a nice ending spot with Kim jumping from the cage onto Moore.
Senshi def Austin Starr (Bob Backlund was the Special Guest Referee)
Really nice match here and a good rematch to their previous encounters. I would've liked to see this match get a bit more time though.
James Storm def Chris Harris- Blindfold Match
This is one of the 2 matches that gave this PPV a bad wrap. It certainly wasn't the fault of these two great talents; however, it was the gimmick of the match that limited what they could have done in the ring (and would go on to do at the next PPV). Really boring and pointless match after months of build.
Christopher Daniels def Jerry Lynn
Thankfully this match picked up the pieces from the stinker before it. Although a bit slow at times, it definitly picked up toward the end and statisfied the audience.
NWA Tag Team Championship- Electrified Cage Match- Team 3D def LAX
This would be the 2nd match that was mentioned before as a stinker. Again, the gimmick here is what held them back. No one was fooled by the so-called "electricity" shocking the wrestlers as they hit the cage. It came off very ackward and ended up giving the entire event as a whole a bad name. If they would've done a straight up Tag Team Steel Cage match it would've come off a lot better as there were some really nice spots throughout the match. However, the stupid gimmick worked against the quality of the match.
Lethal Lockdown Main Event Match
Awesome, near 30-minute match that ended the PPV on a good note. No one will forget the return of the Frankensteiner as Scott Steiner showed the viewers that he still had it in him, nor will they forget AJ Styles' incredible fall off of the cage. Truely memorable and definitly ranks up there with the old school War Games matches.
So there it is, Lockdown 2007. It gets a recommendation from me.
