Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
January has ALWAYS been a bad month for ROH, excluding 06 since Tag Wars and Dissension were good shows.
Without Remorse is one of my top ten favorite shows ever. Seriously. It's not only the show where Davey won his first belt in ROH, but it was the formation of Team Work.
After watching it a couple times after my initial review of it, I have Strong/McGuinness at ****1/4, the opener and (not even kidding) Mark Briscoe vs Joey Matthews both at four stars, and Claudio/Generico and the Ultimate Endurance at ***3/4. But Without Remorse was the fourth show of 2008, so I guess I'll wait on the Florida shows to completely bury ROH for ever and ever and ever.
Also, Injustice II was the first time someone other than Chris Hero made the first challenge of the year to the ROH Title since Aries defended against Cabana at It All Begins back in 2004. They couldn't have found SOME way of getting him in the match...a cardboard cutout or something...
