Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
My ratings for IWA-DS Carnage Cup 5 (2009) contains spoilers on who advances, so if anyone plans on seeing this tournament (I highly recommend it), then don't read on.
Let me start off by saying this show had the worst ring announcer I have ever heard. This dude made Justin Roberts sound like Howard Finkle. Very distracting and annoying.
IWA Deep South September 26, 2009 "Carnage Cup V" - Calera, AL
1. Barbed Wire & Carpet Strips House Of Pain Death Match: SeXXXy Eddy vs. Drake Younger
Unfortunately it was very clear who was going to win as Drake Younger pretty much took all the big bumps. Still a decent match.
2. Exorcist Death Match: Thumbtack Jack vs. Scotty Vortekz
3. X Marks The Spot Death Match: Danny Havoc vs. Christian Faith
4. Home Run Derby Death Match: Nick Gage vs. Insane Lane vs. FreakShow
5. Shaun Tempers vs. Jacob Ashworth (non-tournament)
6. Razor Wire Board, Light Tube Cabin Death Match: Mike Levy vs. Maniac Mike (non-tournament)
Mike Levy is absolutely terrible. And I never heard of Maniac Mike, pretty boring match until Mike Levy throws Maniac Mike into a huge bundle of lighttubes. I'm wondering why there was a non-tournament deathmatch in a deathmatch tournament though.
7. Taipei Fist, Barefoot Thumbtack Death Match: SeXXXy Eddy vs. Danny Havoc
8. Ultraviolent Boards & Cinderblocks Death Match: Thumbtack Jack vs. Nick Gage
9. Chrisjen Hayme vs. Chip Day vs. Slim J vs. Vincent Nothing (non-tournament)
10. Double Hell, Fish Hooks, Light Tube Bundles & Light Tube Table Death Match: Sexxxy Eddy vs. Thumbtack Jack
Great tournament from IWA Deep South. Most deathmatch tournaments are really hit and miss. Luckily this one had some great names instead of alot of IWA MS KOTDM tourneys where alot of backyarders are booked.
One of the best DM tournaments I've seen, so I would definitely recommend it to others who like this type of wrestling.
"If one thinks of history as those past events transcribed for posterity, wrestling, to a significant degree, has no history. Not only are the achievements of past wrestlers ignored by current fans, but those in control of the business willfully distort wrestling's past in order to market the current product."
