Best Match: Angle vs. Hardy
Worst Match: Morgan vs. Crimson
Lockdown 2012 was a mixed bag, the crowd was dead for most of the show but it is the responsibility of show to make them care. If they aren't into the show, get them into it. I think the 6 people I watched with were louder than the couple thousand in Nashville were at times.
Unfortunately for this show it had to follow some intense, dramatic and wild Stanley Cup Playoff hockey so it felt flat at points.
Lethal Lockdown was okay, nothing special but not a bad match. Still fun to watch, the tag match was pretty good, in front of a hotter crowd this would have gotten one of the better reactions. Devon and Robbie E was not a bad match but again a crowd that was so quiet really hurt it. I thought Velvet wrestled as good a match as she can and Gail looked pretty good, that match was about as good as it could have been.
Morgan vs Crimson was horrible, but Morgan did a good promo before the match.
Hardy vs. Angle was really good, had it been on Mania it would have been the 3rd best match on the show just behind Rock/Cena.
The womens tag match was kind of a filler but it worked for what it was. I think Rosita is really talented, she has a great look, sells well, has good offense. One of the most underrated womens wrestlers in America.
The main event was a match I was looking forward to. I am a big fan of both guys and while the build could have been better, I didn't think it was horrible. I was still excited for it. With a hot crowd this match would have been awesome, unfortunately the crowd was lukewarm at best. They had moments they got into Storm and Roode built some heat but things would die down after that. I didn't mind the ending, thought this would have been the time to put the belt on Storm but I like the feud so I don't mind Storm continuing to chase. I am guessing Storm will win the strap in June. Storm looked strong and Roode looked like the lucky heel. Overall a good match.
Show was okay, a good crowd would have made this a thumbs up show but the mixed crowd really brought it to a thumbs in the middle.
Keep up the great work Dave. Planning on renewing my subscription when it comes up next month. Very worth the money.
