TNA Final Resolution Preview and Predictions


TNA Final ResolutionThis Sunday night, 12-20-09, TNA will present it’s next Pay Per View spectacular, just weeks before TNA IMPACT goes head to head with WWE RAW live on Monday night January 4! Is Final Resolution worth purchasing? Let’s get started with the preview, and we’ll find out.

Mick Foley and Abyss vs. Raven and Dr. Stevie

Besides being fairly unfocused, this should be a decent bout. When I say unfocused, I’m referring to Mick Foley in the story line regarding Nash, and with Hogan coming in, instead of focusing on his grudge tag match here. It seems as if TNA is hyping the Monday Night War addition IMPACT, more so than Final Resolution. Otherwise, this should be a decent match. Hopefully, there is some sort of hardcore stipulation added to this one.

Elimination Match: Team 3-D, Rhino and Jesse Neal vs Matt Morgan, Hernandez, Pope D’Angelo Dinero and Suicide (Due to losing on Impact, Hernandez has to go the first five minutes alone. If he is pinned in that time, his team loses)

At the last TNA Pay Per View, Turning Point, these two teams had a very good match, with a very, very fair amount of action involved. This feud reminds me a bit of he TNA Originals vs. The Main Event Mafia feud, but hopefully TNA does this one right, and puts the young guys over here. Again, this should be a great match, with a good build to it, and should be filled with Total Nonstop Action, no pun intended!

Feast or Fired Battle Royal: Beer Money, Kevin Nash, Jay Lethal, Consequences Creed, Cody Deaner, Samoa Joe, Sheik Abdul Bashir, Kiyoshi and Homicide

[adinserter block=”1″]Personally, I love the annual Feast or Fired Battle Royals! They’re always filled with tons of action and cool spots galore! This match with probably start off the show, and for good reason. It should be a great way to pump up the crowd, and set the pace for the evening. Samoa Joe hasn’t been on TNA television lately, so hopefully he either gets a world or X-Division title shot here. Expect Cody Deaner to get the fired case, for he and TNA are rumored to be parting ways soon. Again, this should be a great spot fest!

Last Man Standing Match: Bobby Lashley vs. Scott Steiner

As I stated last month, I have thoroughly enjoyed the Lashley/Steiner feud, and thinks it’s a great physiological approach. The Last Man Standing stipulation, should just make this more interesting. Hopefully, Crystal will get involved here, to add to the drama of this rivalry over herself. Again, this should be interesting to say the very least.

Knockouts Title Match: ODB © vs. Tara

Although not the best choice for a Knockout Championship match, this should be decent nevertheless. I like the feud between these two, and the ODB heel turn as well. Personally, I would have put Hamada up against ODB here for something different, but Tara did in fact win the number 1 contenders match at Turning Point, so this only makes sense. Next month, I hope to see girls like Sarita, Alissa Flash, or Hamada involved in the Knockout Championship match picture.

TNA Tag Team Title Match: The British Invasion © vs. The MotorCity Machine Guns

In my opinion, this match has had a poorly done build. A few short weeks ago, Chris Sabin beat all three members of the British Invasion single handily. If the Guns don’t win the tag titles here, I’ll be shocked. There has been little friction between the two teams in the recent weeks, besides the Guns making a fool out of the Brits. Expect new tag champs, which is a good thing, for I am a big MCMG fan. Besides the build to it, this should be a pretty good match, with tons of talented athletes involved.

Three Degrees Of Pain Cage Match: Kurt Angle vs. Desmond Wolfe

Fall Number One: Pin Fall

Fall Number Two: Submission

Fall Number Three: Escape

“This is awesome”, “This is wrestling”! I can hear the chants already! If anything like Turning Point, this match will be fantastic to say the very, very least! These two world class athletes tore the roof off of the IMPACT Zone last month, and I expect nothing less here. With the addition of the steel cage, and three separate falls, this promises to be an absolute classic encounter, between two of the greatest professional wrestlers in the United States! Although I believe that TNA is beginning to over use the steel cage gimmick, this is going to be such a great match, I don’t quite give a damn! This match has had great buildup and psychology, however, I would have preferred that TNA would have saved the tension between AJ and Kurt until after this PPV. TNA needs a bit of work on keeping focus, and finishing what they have started. But all in all, this should be a show stealing match, worth the price of the PPV alone!

TNA World Title Match: AJ Styles © vs. Daniels

[adinserter block=”2″]I remember thinking to myself, that this is the exact main event I would have chosen for this show. There has been a very interesting story line between these two former best friends, but again, it should have been a bit more focused. Daniels should not have started creating tension with Desmond Wolfe until after this PPV, and the same goes with AJ and Angle. Otherwise, this should be a very good main event, and should be another show stealing contest!

Overall, this is show looks to have the potential to be another great TNA PPV! Wolfe vs. Angle, as well as AJ vs. Daniels, should be worth the PPV price alone, and the under card is very solid as well. This is defiantly going to be worth the asking price, and I highly recommend you check it out!
