TNA gets a lot of very deserved criticism for the product they have produced since they started in 2002. Often in the past 10 years, their booking has been atrocious, their television show has been unwatchable, and their PPV buy rates have sunk to embarrassing lows as their shows have continued to disappoint over and over again throughout the company’s history. However, TNA has some of the most talented wrestlers in the world, and those wrestlers have produced many outstanding matches over the years under the TNA banner. This week, we will examine some of the most prominent matches that have taken place at TNA’s all-cage PPV, Lockdown. Lockdown returns on April 15th and features James Storm vs. Bobby Roode in the main event for the TNA World Title. For all the deserved criticism TNA has taken over the years, I am very much looking forward to watching that main event. If nothing else, that is progress.

Colt Cabana is a great entertainer and a great professional wrestler. However, he is currently not being booked to wrestle for the WWE, TNA, ROH, DG USA, or even PWG. While I’m glad that great companies like Chikara, AIW, AAW, AAPW, and many others continue to book Colt Cabana, we feel like his work is not appreciated by nearly enough people. So, we are taking a week to share some memorable Colt Cabana matches that have been released by the promotions that booked the matches. To support Colt Cabana, follow him on his Twitter and buy his merchandise at ColtMerch.com.
We have already posted three matches featuring Colt Cabana. Check out:
