It had been a long time since I had watched this and the mood just struck me to pop it in. We get a cool little documentary on Foley that touches on his "impact" on wrestling and his move to TNA Wrestling. We start out with his debut and interview on Impact and move straight into Foley and Jeremy Borash introducing each match and segment.
1.MICK FOLEY, BROTHER DEVON & AJ STYLES VS BOOKER T, SCOTT STEINER & KIP JAMES-this match picks up when the match first ended with Foley restarting the match under "hardcore rules". I really wish we would have gotten the full match here since it was Foley's in ring debut for the company. This was a good match and had some fun moments, AJ flying onto Kip from the ring to the outside on a table being the best of them. This match happened at "Genesis 2009".
2.MICK FOLEY & JEFF JARRETT VS KURT ANGLE & STING-this match took place on Impact in March of 2009. This was Foley's first match on Impact and was a great main event that night. The match started with Angle and Jarrett which is really interesting looking back now. The action picks up once Foley is tagged in. Foley is in control until the action hits the floor when the Main Event Mafia's security attacks Foley. This prompts Team 3-D to fight them off while Angle hits Mick with a chair and Angle Slams him. Angle beats on Mick so much that his own partner Sting wants Angle to stop and just pin him. It ends when Foley nails Sting with a chair and gets the pinfall.
It is here that we get one of Mick Foley's best interview segments ever. Foley interviewed himself here as both Foley and Cactus Jack. He comes of legit psycho and it is so fun especially when Sting joins in on the fun. The beatdown here is great and Foley domes off vicious and I loved it, the changing music thing was great. I remember being so excited for the "Lockdown" PPV that was happening that Sunday with these two going one on one.
3.[TNA TITLE STEEL CAGE MATCH]MICK FOLEY VS STING-this was a great match and I thought that it payed off the hype going in very well. These two really went after each other especially after Foley got a barbed wire bat involved. Speaking of that I loved when Foley kicked the cameraman through the cage and get the bat that way. The ending was excellent with Foley and Sting racing over the cage and Mick taking a big fall to get the win and the TNA Title in the process. This match took place at "Lockdown 2009" and I think is the best match thus far on this DVD.
4.[TNA TITLE]MICK FOLEY VS KURT ANGLE-this match took place at "Victory Road 2009" with two of my all time favorites going at it for the belt. This is a really good match especially once it gets going. Angle is excellent even when he is not at his best psychically and the same can be said for Foley because they are great storytellers. The action is back and forth including some classic Foley elbows and such with a great ending involving some reversals and Kurt making Mick tap out, fun match.
5.[MONSTER'S BALL MATCH]MICK FOLEY VS ABYSS-the match that everyone was waiting for when Foley showed up in TNA. This was the the two "Mankind" persona's going at it in the match everyone wanted to see them in. Stevie Richards was the special ref here and he would come into play in this as would Daffeny. This match was super fun with weapons of course being used including a taser that adds to the fun in a way that may be different then what they thought. The table moment with Daffeny was excellent and was a highlight for sure. After a fun brawl Abyss gets the win here after Stevie takes a ride onto thumbtacks. This match took place at "Bound for Glory 2009".
6.[FOLEY'S FUNHOUSE MATCH]MICK FOLEY & ABYSS VS RAVEN & DR. STEVIE- this was another fun hardcore brawling style match with all four guys going all out here. Of course there are various weapons again at play and Daffeny gets involved again like the last match. The action of course is all over the place and a nice quick pace. Abyss gets the win for him and Mick after pinning Raven here at "Final Resolution 2009".
7.[NO DQ LOSER LEAVES MATCH]MICK FOLEY VS JEFF JARRETT-this match was put together by Eric Bischoff as he wanted to fire the loser since he was not happy with both. Bischoff even came out to join the commentary team after the match had been in progress. Beer Money were the special referees for this match. This a good straight forward match with some nice back and forth action with Jarrett coming out on top. That ending actually surprised me at the time since I thought that Mick was going to win, great match from "Impact".
8.[LAST MAN STANDING MATCH]MICK FOLEY VS RIC FLAIR-the final match on this set took place on "Impact" as well. This match was a great bloody battle between the two legends with both men looking great here. The destroyed each other with various weapons and Flair even went off of the top rope crashing onto Foley through a table. In fact it would be that moment that would actually lead to Mick getting the win after Flair face first into the thumbtacks. After the match Ric was supposed to kiss something on Foley but that was not to be that night as Fortune and EV2 would get involved.
Following the matches we get to see the rest of the documentary with his kids, his latest book at the time "Countdown to Lockdown" and his charity work. The bonus features on the DVD include Mick's confrontation with Ric Flair and his confrontation with Immortal. The thing with Flair was great and I thought the fans should have been more into this. And then even with all of Immortal and Matt Morgan in the ring Mick and Flair steal the show again. This is a great DVD and makes me miss those old TNA days.
