ECW 2009 . Don't think there is an ECW 2008 one (not on XWT or PWT anyway) .

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

I know this is not the pace to be asking it but since one of the guys is currently in WWE I guess I can. Is Tyler Black vs Davey Richards any good? I've heard that it's the closest thing to psychology on a modern day ROH match. The reason why I'm asking this here in this section and not the Other Section is because, quite frankly, after spending some time posting in here and checking out matches based on recommendations, I value the opinion of posters in this section a hell of a lot more than the Other Section.

So is the mach any good? I know a typical response would be "Check the damn thing out for yourself" but come on. We're talking 30 minutes of my life I may or may not get back here.

But just to make a proper contribution to this section, holy shit is Cena vs Taker from Vengeance a forgotten gem! Good Lord, the chemistry that Cena and Taker have. And to think that that was just 2003/2004!

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

06 has Big Show's great run . Little bit of Punk too. Not much else though.

Sorry for just butting myself into your conversation but I downloaded 2006 and 2007, I haven't reached very far into it but '06 is pretty awesome mostly cause of Big Show. Some really good matches like Show/Flair and Show/Taker. Also I just want to point out a nice, fun Test vs Tommy Dreamer match. I never took Dreamer for much of a storyteller. Did a good job of putting Test over.

Plus there's Kevin freaking Thorne!

Oh yeah and Kelly Kelly taking her clothes off

It's worth a watch. I'll say that as a devoted Tyler Black fan. Plus, the only Davey matches that seem to hold up from his later years seem to be the matches vs Black or Austin Aries. If it sucks, then my apologies. I don't own it.

Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread

Well fuck me, turns out even I gave Davey/Tyler a watch lol:

Spoiler for some indie match:
Tyler Black Vs Davey Richards - ROH DBD VIII 2010

So, the match all Indy fans have been raving about since it happened. I went in with, not low expectations, but certainly not "****3/4" expectations. Probably for the best I went into it not expecting a supermegaawesomesauce match, because I would have been disappointed, but I ended up being fairly surprised for the most part.

First part of the match is fine, both guys going back and forth on the mat and exchanges holds etc, to try and gain the advantage. Happens in almost every big ROH match pretty much, and it never impresses me, but its never usually bad.

Things definitely pick up when Tyler starts to let the fans get to him ("you still suck", fuck you Tyler" chants), and he decides to punish Davey ("new world champ" chants for him lol) by showing his boot into his face and stomp on it.

Then things get ever better from there, with Davey managing to create an opening, and taking some time to check to see if he is missing a tooth. When he believes he HAS lost a tooth thanks to Tyler, he goes uber apeship and literally kicks the FUCK out of Tyler. Some really stiff shots that you can clearly see Tyler tensing up to take so he won't get too hurt lol.

Some of the shit I don't like about Davey comes into play when Tyler starts making a comeback, such as getting a big boot from Tyler (Davey is a fucking midget, and Tyler is like a foot taller than him) and he doesn't even go down. He just turns around so Tyler can hit another couple of moves so they can give us a SPOT SEQUENCE.

Speaking of spots, Davey hits a pretty awesome looking dive through (or over, I don't remember well enough) the ropes, hitting Black and flying into the crowd too. Didn't mind this happening as Tyler had the advantage in the match up until a few moments ago, and being the smaller man in the match, you could say Davey was willing to do anything he could to keep the bigger champion down.

From here though, things kinda take a turn for the worst. Moves for the sake of moves a lot of the time (not ALL the time, there is still a lot of good here), Black diving over the ropes onto Davey for no fucking reason at all (Black was in control, Davey was on the outside thanks to Black... so why fucking bother?), and some random guy who I assume is a friend of Davey's shows up with a chair, only to do fuck all and help Tyler superkick Davey (which was unintentional on behalf of the friend... I think. Maybe it leads to something later, I don't know). If that lead to the finish, then it would have been fine, but as it was, it was completely pointless to the match.

Finishing stretch is... holy shit its actually really GOOD. Both men sell their fatigue through it all, and they don't go finish crazy or anything. I think both guys kick out of a finisher (not entire sure because I don't know what either man uses as a primary finisher lol), and the finish comes when Tyler hits a second superkick to Davey while he is on his knees, but instead of letting him drop and going for a pin, he picks up back up and hits a suplex pin thingy for the win.

So, I'm actually pretty impressed. Don't think its close to HBK/Taker (and honestly, I will be surprised as FUCK if anything comes close to that this year, next year, the rest of the decade...), but its most certainly superior to the overrated cage match between Anderson and Angle in TNA. Its just a shame the middle section of the match was filled with some pointlessness, otherwise this WOULD have been just about as good as everyone has claimed it to be.
