Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
Danielson vs. Nigel - So so great. Intense, really focused, great build, awesome finish. ONly thing keeping it from 5* to me is that, well, it's not so much that the winner isn't in doubt, it's that it doesn't really matter. The fans didn't know it was #1 contender, so instead of cheering wrestlersm they kinda chanted and reacted as to look good on TV. I don't know if what I'm sayingv makes sense, whatever. Plus, while I'm not sure which match I prefer, Unified definatly felt more epic and that finishing stretch I can play in my mind with no hesitation. Great fucking match though. ****1/2-****3/4
Morishima vs. Claudio - Wow, I really couldn't get into this as match on tape. Live, I gave it ****1/4 as did many others. But on tape, while the nearfalls are still great and such, there's really not that much holding it together in between, and that REALLY hurts it. It's still got an epic feel that puits it over defences like BJ in Dayton and Jay Briscoe, but it's not near MOTYC levels. ***1/2
Morishima vs. Dragon - WOW. This match is fucking awesome. It starts, and you get the feeling that it's gonna be speedy Dragon dancing round Morishima, then BOOM! Morishima knocks him the fuck out and it's a fight for survival for Dragon. Dragon survives to the 15 minute mark, and starts throwing BOMBS to close it out. But, cause hes hurt, every time Morishima hits anything, even minor (like a boot), he's knocked the fuck out. ANd eventually, he's got no bombs left, and a backdrop driver finishes. AWESOME match, #1 or 2 for the year. ****3/4-*****
Gonna rewatch Dragon vs. KENTA, as I gave that straight up ***** and I need to know if it's REALLY better than all these.
