[2006-09-24-TNA-No Surrender] LAX (Homicide & Hernandez) vs Christopher Daniels & A.J. Styles

Recommended Posts

NWA World Tag Team Champions LAX vs AJStyles/Christopher Daniels - Ultimate X

 

Alas, I could not find the street fight. This was not as good as I remember, but it is one of the better TNA spotfests. I don't feel like re-watching all of TNA 2006, but for the most part TNA fans just pop for spots rather than well-laid wrestling psychology. I think there is an argument to be made that TNA wrestlers ought to please their fans rather than drag them kicking and screaming through a good match. TNA matches have weird heat because the fans are only looking to pop for spots and can be quite dead for extended periods of times. This was pretty much a non-stop-spot-a-thon. There were plenty of eye-pleasing spots with AJ getting thrown by Hernandez, a nice dive train, some nice work with the ladder. I literally just watched that match and cant remember the order of the spots and all of them. In the moment, I thought it was cool, but now just minutes after I am struggling to piece together where AJ's comeback was in relation to the second dive train. The finish was smart because it was actually the two most impressive spots in the match. If you are going to do a spotfest then you best hold your last two trump cards for the end. AJ Styles Clash Homicide off the apron into table and Daniels leaping for the tag belts were visually very impressive. Very disappointed by both of these matches and hopefully Bound For Glory can save it. It is starting to feel this feud is all talk and no walk

A spotfest, but a really good one, with minimal climbing or spot set up downtime. Leave it to AJ Styles to help make the best of a dumb gimmick match that usually produces big messes (to be fair, the others are pretty good in this, too). The Styles Clash through the table looked awesome (and major props to Homicide for taking that). The spot from Daniels for the finish was also really spectacular. Not a must see classic or anything, but really enjoyable compared to the other few Ultimate X matches I've seen.
