After a few months of bad breaks and disappointing television, TNA started to get on the mend with the return of top guys like AJ Styles and Samoa Joe as well as an intriguing storyline between Angle and Sting over control of the Main Event Mafia and the TNA Championship. That's not to say "Destination X" was a good show, because it wasn't, yet it started to push things in the right direction.
The turmoil in the Main Event Mafia had shades of the nWo storyline in 1997, and the addition of Mick Foley and Jeff Jarrett to the sideline managed to make the match feel like a genuine combustible situation with four guys that all hated each other. Even though the match wasn't as good as their 2007 encounter, the story in this one was compelling enough to keep it afloat.
The rest of the show is mostly forgettable, such as Samoa Joe's return against Scott Steiner, Eric Young getting squashed and a woefully dull Legends Title match between Booker T and AJ Styles. The non-match with Steiner and Joe was the most disappointing since those two had a great match three years earlier.
The two matches worth seeing on this show were the Ultimate X match between Suicide, the Motor City Machine Guns and Lethal Consequences where everybody got a chance to pull of crazy moves and show off their characters. The other was a strong tag team match between Beer Money, inc. and Team 3D that was simply a tease for better things to come.
Although the show isn't great, there are a few decent things to see here. Overall, it's a better show than "Genesis" and "Against All Odds", though I don't think anything on this show can compete with Jarrett/Angle from January.
