LOCKDOWN 2013
 
This was the second PPV event of the year for TNA and was also in the wonderful city of San Antonio Texas. This was a good event that I think was better than the first one of the year but still not as great as what could have been. Of course the main event and ending was EXCELLENT and you know I loved it.
 
1.[3 WAY X TITLE MATCH]KENNY KING VS ZEMA ION VS CHRISTIAN YORK-great opening match that would see your typical high spots in an X match. That of course is not a bad thing because it is expected and to be honest the X Division has not been anywhere near what it used to be. So it was fun to see a match like this which had a great moment involving all three guys and the top rope. King keeps the belt here in a well earned victory, all three looked good here. I was not surprised that King and Ion did well here but I was happy to see York step his game up after he looked so sluggish at Genesis.
 
2.JOEY RYAN VS JOSEPH PARK-decent match right here with two guys I like. Park has been great especially with his facial expressions with this new lawyer character. Then of course we have Ryan who in my opinion has not been used properly. The match is pretty good and the crowd was with Park all the way here. He gets his first PPV win here after dropping down on Ryan for the pin.
 
Right here we have a backstage segment with Bully Ray, Brooke, and Hulk Hogan. I mention only because I really liked Hogan’s speech here, it felt real.
 
3.[KNOCK OUT TITLE]VELVET SKY VS GAIL KIM-this was actually a better match than it gets credit for. Of course this match was more about building Kim’s feud with a certain referee for this match. Still the match was good with Sky retaining her title
 
4.ROBBIE E VS ROBBIE T-I actually liked this match much more than I thought I would. Sure it is not a great match and it may be the worst on the card but I still enjoyed it for some reason. Of course it could have been seeing E get demolished in the end by T, T with the win as if you didn’t know. This was your typical little/big guy team that split because of the little guys’ arrogance. I liked this better when HBK and Nash did it in 94.
 
5.[TAG TITLE]AUSTIN ARIES & BOBBY ROODE VS BAD INFLUENCE VS CHAVO GUERRERO & HERNANDEZ-I really enjoyed this match right here as it was nonstop action. The crowd was really behind Chavo and Hernandez for obvious reasons. All three teams did an excellent job here as did the ref. I bring that up because he kept control for a good majority of the match. That is rare in these kinds of matches but of course things get a little out of the ref’s hands towards the end. I am a fan of all these guys and knew they would deliver. Daniels and Kaz as well as Aries and Roode were excellent in their heel roles here. Chavo and Hernandez looked just as good, Hernandez in particular seemed like he picked his game up here. They really got the crowd going. I also like how Roode and Aries kept the belts, it was a good finish. I loved Chavo hitting everyone with those suplexes.
 
6.[CAGE MATCH]KURT ANGLE VS WES BRISCO-the first cage match of the night would pit Kurt Angle against Aces & Eights member Wes Brisco. Now I am a fan of this faction and have actually been enjoying the storyline. With that said I am a huge fan of Kurt Angle so I was a little torn here. But if it came down to it personally I wanted Kurt to win but story wise they needed to make A&E look strong. Now while Wes looked good here it was Kurt who really controlled the match. His German suplex off of the top was great and I liked the ending here. Kurt had nailed the ref and turned him inside out so he was out of it when Kurt made it out of the cage. This lead to D-Lo attacking him and putting him back inside the ring and pulling Wes out, of course the ref then turns to see Brisco outside of the cage. That is a win for A&E.
 
7.[LETHAL LOCKDOWN]TEAM TNA VS ACES & EIGHTS-my boy Mr. Anderson started things off for A&E doing battle with Magnus for the first three minutes. Most of this matchup would see Magnus in control but they were both down when Knux [Knox] made his way to the cage. Of course he and Anderson dominate Magnus until Samoa Joe is the next to enter. At this point the former tag champs work very well together with the tandem moves. Garett Bischoff was next up for A&E and he basically falls victim to the team of Joe and Magnus as well. A&E take control shortly before Eric Young makes his way to the cage and lights people up. Devon is next in the cage and helps put A&E back into control. James Storm hits the cage and tears into A&E even hitting the “last call” on Knux. Team TNA looks great at this point but then enters D.O.C. giving the numbers advantage back to A&E. but all things turn TNA’s way once Sting hits the cage with his bat and lays everyone out. After that he distributes weapons to all his teammates. At this point A&E takes an insane beat down and TNA looks totally dominate. But things shift gears once the bad guys get their hands on the weapons. It looks like more of a natural thing when A&E are dominating with the weapons. Things get more intense of course and we even get a giant tower of doom, the crowd loved it. Not long after this Eric Young gets the win after coming off of the top of the cage with an elbow. This allows TNA to win the match and although I like everyone on their team I feel like A&E should have gotten the win to put the angle over more.
 
8.[STEEL CAGE TNA TITLE MATCH]JEFF HARDY VS BULLY RAY-with the history these two have had I knew that this was going to be a good match. This match was all about the speed of Hardy against the power of Bully. This was a highly competitive matchup as it went back and forth. Now we all knew that Ray was going to turn heel and join A&E but he made us all wait. When they first hit the cage he and Hardy joined forces to fend them off. Once that was over with they went back into it as daddy and daughter Hogan made their way to cage side. It wasn’t too long after that when Aces & Eights returned, this time Ray didn’t side with Jeff. Devon made his way into the cage and tossed Bully a hammer, Ray of course to my great delight nailed Hardy with it. This lead to him winning the title and announcing he was president of Aces & Eights. I loved the promo he cut afterwards and the scene of people throwing trash in the ring.
