Bound for Glory 2010 was good but not great compared to other Bound for Glory shows. The show opened with the match of the night for the Tag team titles. The tag title match was amazing & worth 13 minutes of your time. The Fatal 4 Way was good but I didn’t like the part about tagging in & out and it hurt the match a little. Also they only got 6 minutes which I feel they could have been given more time instead of the joke of EY & OJ vs. Ink Inc. EY & OJ vs. Ink Inc. was a waste of 8 minutes that could have went to another match or something better. It was basically a comedy match that was funny but unnecessary for the biggest TNA PPV of the year. The X Division Title Match was good as it didn’t need to be a spot fest to be a great match as Lethal & Williams put on a good match. The Monster’s Ball Match was a good match even though there was not a lot of Holy Shit Moments. The Handicap Match was decent as Jarrett didn’t get involved & Nash and Sting were limited making it mostly Joe & Pope doing all the work. The Team 3D Promo was good as I like Ray as a speaker & it felt real. The Lethal Lockdown was good but didn’t really pick up until everyone was in the ring. The main event was awesome & was the 2nd best match of the night. Jeff Hardy turning heel was a huge shock & a great way to end the event.
Overall Rating for the 2010 Bound for Glory: 7 ou
