This was a pretty solid ppv and is one of my favorite BFG's. Thanks for reading!
Steel Asylum match for a shot at the TNA X-Division championship
Jay Lethal vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Chris Sabin vs. Alex Shelley vs. Curry Man vs. Shark Boy vs. Super Eric vs. Petey Williams vs. Johnny Devine vs. Jimmy Rave
This was a ver good opener. This is one of my favorite X-division matches at BFG. This has a lot of highflying action and is hardcore at some points. This has some good moments like Shark Boy getting a double stunner on MCMG, the match becoming a finisher fest, and Jay Lethal winning. This match has a moment with Sonjay Dutt getting a double hurricarana. This match is very crazy, good action, and is very entertaining.
Intergender Bimbo Brawl
Rhino, Rhaka Kan, and ODB vs. The Beutiful people
This isn't a very good match. I didn't like this and wasn't hardcore at all. The action was very poor and this was just a filler.
Sheik Abdul Bashir vs. Consequences Creed
This was a ok match. I wasn't thrilled and didn't really like this. This had some good moments but was mostly a filler. I didn't like this, and thought these two could have put on a better show.
Triple Threat for the TNA Knockouts championship
Taylor Wilde vs. Awesome Kong vs. Roxxi
This wasn't a very good match either. This was one of the shortest triple threat matches i have ever seen. This was another boring match and had nothing in it with awesome kong mostly dominating until the end when Taylor gets the win. This was dissapointing and was the third bad match in a row.
Monsters Ball for the TNA Tag Team championship
Abyss and Matt Morgan vs. Beer Money Inc. vs. Team 3D vs. LAX
This was one of the most hardocore matches of the year. I mean, oh my god, this match has practically everything in it, kendo sticks, tables, lighter fluid, cheese grater, tacks, beer bottles and much much more. Funny moment in the match when Steve McMichael almost got tackeled and pumbled Robert Roode. But overall, holy cow of a match, i never knew that a TNA match could resemble ECW so much. 4.5/5
Booker T vs. AJ Styles vs. Christian Cage
This a solid three way dance. I liked the highflying material used from Christian and AJ, but what was just a minor set back in the match, is that Booker was practically a scared little girl who spent almost all of the match outside the ring. Well, this match mostly was for AJ and Christian anyways because of there rivalry, but this match just got real messed up and complicated at the end when Booker took advantage. But nice match though. 3/5
Special guest enforcer Mick Foley
Jeff Jarrett vs. kurt Angle
This was definatly a classic of 2008 for TNA. This match lived up to expectations and was amazing, with both technical wrestlers, these two put on a great show. But there was a moment where the ref got hit(sucks for him)and Mick took over, got hit with a chair by Angle, Angle got hit with a guitar, and this one was over for a great match, and a nice comeback victory for Jarrett. But this rivalry continued to Genisis by Kurt saying that he got screwed, and he certanly did, but another great match for the card, and number two of three twenty minuet matches. 5/5
TNA World Heavyweight championship
Samoa Joe vs. Sting
This was another twenty minute bout, but was very nice, this started off slow but was another build up match, this match continued Stings undefeated streak, but he took a big step backwards and cheated to win, using the interference of Kevin Nash. But other than another screw job, this was very enjoyable and is worth watching. These two had a great build up to this match and was bound for glory material. 4/5
Yup. This was a very solid TNA evening of bouts. (Sip of beer) Yup.
What did you think of this review?
Bound for Glory IV was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event produced Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), which took place on October 12, 2008 at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Illinois. It was the fourth annual Bound for Glory event and the first to be referred to in roman numerals instead of by year. Eight professional wrestling matches were featured on the event's card.
The event featured a supercard, a scheduling of more than one main event. The main event was a standard match for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship between the champion Samoa Joe and Sting, in which Sting claimed victory to win the championship. Another featured match was also a standard match with Mick Foley as Special Guest Enforcer, in which Jeff Jarrett defeated Kurt Angle. Two featured bouts were scheduled on the undercard. One was a Four Way Tag Team Monster's Ball match for the TNA World Tag Team Championship with Steve "Mongo" McMichael as Special Guest Referee between the champions, Beer Money, Inc (Robert Roode and James Storm), who were accompanied by Jacqueline, Abyss and Matt Morgan, Team 3D (Brother Ray and Brother Devon), and The Latin American Xchange (Homicide and Hernandez); Beer Money, Inc retained the championship in the match.
