THE TWO SHEDS REVIEW by Julian Radbourne

It’s regarded as TNA’s biggest show of the year, and it’s now out on DVD. IV saw thee great and the good of the company heading for Chicago last October.

Beginning with the multi-man Steel Asylum match, it’s pretty obvious from the onset what sort of show this is going to be, another example of the multi-man madness that the company has been suffering from for some time.

While the action is good for the most part, you can’t help buy get the feeling, as with many of TNA’s pay-per-views, that the creatives just want to get as many wrestlers on the show as possible. It makes the multi-man matches less special, because they’re seen so often.

As for the performances, they’re solid as always, except for Rhaka Khan’s in the six person inter-gender match, and Steve “Mongo” McMichael’s as special referee in the Monster’s Ball tag title match. I’m left to wonder just how much he got paid for wandering around the ring with a gormless look on his face.

The highlights of the DVD are the three singles matches. Champion Sheik Abdul Bashir and remind us just what the X Division is all about in their title match. World Champion ’s defence against the legend that is is an impressive effort. But the show is stolen by and , putting on a classic that is possibly the greatest pure wrestling match in TNA history.

DVD extras come in the form of footage from the Bound for Glory fan fest, an interview with head honcho , post match interviews, behind the scenes of the Bound for Glory film shoot, a Smashing Pumpkins music video, and a photo gallery.

So while this is a very enjoyable show, it’s let down somewhat by the amount of multi-man (and woman) matches.

With thanks to the powers that be at TNA for supplying a copy of this release.
