10/10/10 Bound for Glory

Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley vs. Max Buck & Jeremy Buck (Tag Team Titles): Epic win. Enough said. ****1/4

Tara vs. Angelina Love vs. Velvet Sky vs. Madison Rayne (Knockouts Title): Honestly, I was not a fan of the booking of the match. Tara winning at least allowed for the type of match to make sense. It was basically a tag match throughout, so it was really not a true four-way match. Mickie should not be a referee. The way she positioned herself to count the pin would clearly allow her to see Tara holding Velvet's tights. Refereeing 101, people: don't do that. 1/2*

Shannon Moore & Jesse Neal vs. Orlando Jordan & Eric Young: Mike Tenay said it best...what the hell did we just watch? Absolutely confusing and atrocious. I don't care how much people like watching Eric Young be a goofball. There's the current Santino-type comedy (which can be quite funny), and then there's wrong comedy where a guy has the IQ of Eugene. This was just ridiculously wrong. -**

Jay Lethal vs. Douglas Williams (X-Division Title): Not bad here, although they definitely can do better. Good for Lethal, his push continues. And the music of Robbie E. and Cookie reminds me of DJ Gabriel and Alicia Fox. Were they getting X-Pac heat already? *3/4

Rob Van Dam vs. Abyss (Monster's Ball): A bunch of barbed wire in this one. Good, but overall, not really that great. I miss the old Monster's Ball matches. Crowd reaction was good, but not the best. **1/2

Sting, Kevin Nash, & D'Angelo Dinero vs. Jeff Jarrett & Samoa Joe: And sure, why not? Let's have another swerve! This time, Jarrett turns on Samoa Joe. I wish I had a fast-forward button for this one. *

Tommy Dreamer, Rhino, Stevie Richards, Raven, & Sabu vs. AJ Styles, Matt Morgan, James Storm, Robert Roode, & Kazarian (Cage; Lethal Lockdown): Oh come on. Why the hell is EV2.0 even still here? And on top of that, why did they WIN?! Great, the story probably continues now. *1/4

Jeff Hardy vs. Kurt Angle vs. Mr. Anderson (World Title): So 10/10/10 basically will be remembered for Jeff Hardy turning heel...sure. I was digging the match (some very nice spots), but the end felt like a mess. I was dozing off at times. So is Kurt Angle retired now in storylines? No, and they'll figure a way out considering it was Anderson that got pinned. ***1/4

MVPs: The Guns and Generation Me, by default. Everything else sucked or was a letdown in some way.

Overall Rating: This was a horrid PPV. Aside from the opening tag match -- which was predictably awesome -- everything else just felt off or messy. Frankly, I will not waste any more typing here. I'm very sure WWE Bragging Rights in two weeks will be a lot better than this. **
