The story has been done before (see: WWE Armageddon 2003), and the end result is a satisfying development in the over-arching story. However, what fails is the individual match quality. None of the matches presented here were anything better than decent and the supposed main event matches were probably the most uninspired.
Kurt Angle defended his a Title against Mick Foley in the main event, which, unfortunately, was easily Mick's weakest effort since joining the company. Angle seemed to have difficulty with Mick mostly because he couldn't use most of his high-impact moves. The match is okay, but it's the weakest main event since Genesis in January.
If I had to pick out any stand out matches, I'd have to give the nod to Team 3D and the British Invasion for giving the audience a decent if forgettable tag team match that got the crowd motivated. Also, Kevin Nash and AJ Styles proved they were both motivated with their bout; both men told a good story and AJ bumped like a pro for the bigger Nash.
The rest of the card is mostly bland, though I wouldn't call anything on the show bad except for the travesty between Sharmell and Jenna Morasca. Thank God for Awesome Kong, that's all I got to say!
Sadly, "Victory Road" seems to have a lot more in common with shows like "Against All Odds" and "Genesis"; TNA would bounce back quickly and at least put a lot of storyline into the show. If it had even one stand of match, I would've called it a success. Unfortunately, it wasn't.
Mick Foley should have stayed retired and kept a commissioner role for TNA. Here he gave it his best against Kurt Angle which made for a great match and showed Foley though not in his prime he could still pull one out once in a while like he did with Sting at Lockdown. Beer Money vs Booker T and Steiner was great. Beer Money was the best team and I think should have stayed champions but Angle said if any Main Event Mafia members lost they would be fired so you knew who was going to win. I think it was great for Steiner to get a title in TNA since when they signed him it was supposed to be a big deal. Also it was Booker T who deserved another title too as he was a star in TNA.
Tara vs Angelina Love was a good match. Tara got screwed out of the title but this was a start of a good feud between two of the greatest knockouts. Team 3D put on a solid match with British Invasion. Morgan picked up a win over Daniels. It was a good match but Daniels was overmatched. Overall I like this PPV a lot. There are a lot of negative reviews on it. I agree the continuing trend of The Frontline losing to The Main Event Mafia without many wins seemed like The NWO WCW all over again. But AJ is the hero and beats Angle at No Surrender and disbands the Main Event Mafia for good. I loved The Main Event Mafia I loved watching the guys from WCW I grew up watching in the 90's and early 00's get a last run. At the end of the year we had AJ defending his title against Daniels and Joe as the veterans were now moved out of the picture everything was headed in the right direction and then well 'oh brotha' Cheers and Enjoy!
