The Final Pulse
Two more MOTYC’s come from Final Resolution as Angle and Wolfe as well as Daniels and Styles put on epic battles tonight. The undercard did their job as well, except for Tara and ODB, which was lacking…though I blame TNA for putting that match too early on the card. Cody Deaner has a job still and all is right in TNA. Positive recommendation from me to definitely watch this show for the two co-main events and the opening match. Enjoy your night!
