At the time, I had been a supporter of TNA having watched several of their weekly pay per view events during the 2002-2004 run. I would regularly come home from high school to watch their one hour program Impact aired on Fox Sports Net at 3pm. So, naturally I was quite interested in the pay per view and had to order it.

As it would turn out, it would the first and last TNA pay per view I ever bought. I did an in-depth review of the show HERE. Continue reading
