Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Recently watched the Best On The Indies: Jon Moxley DVD.
The indy style of wrestling really isn't my cup of tea but there's four matches that really, really stood out on the DVD for me are:
Moxley vs Ricochet- I really enjoyed this one. Good psychology. They worked the Bigger man vs Little dude to a tee. It was really exciting.
Moxley vs Brain Damage- fucking awesome match. Moxley made Damage look like a star! Holy shit was that match good
Moxley vs Sami Callihan- Probably the best match on the set. Just some great stuff from these two. Fantastic psychology. The spot where Moxley bites Callihan forehead open is such a simple yet effective spot.
Moxley vs Robert Anthony- A great deathmatch. I wouldn't really describe it as a deathmatch, I mean it had ultraviolent aspects in the glass panes but it wasn't really what I associate a deathmatch with. Some good psychology here. Moxley sets up a glass pane in the corner but Anthony takes a steel chair and throws it into the glass, smashing it screaming "Fuck no!" Just some great stuff. When Anthony finally goes through the glass, it's just nasty.
The other matches I could have cared less for really. Younger vs Moxley I skipped after about 10 minutes. The steel cage match with Jake Crist could have gone 20 minutes and told the same story. The damn thing went for nearly an hour. The barbwire match was a bore. The Richards match, I wanted to give it a chance but just couldn't. But those four matches, were just really impressive imo.
