Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

^^^^ Just like to say I pretty much fully agree with those ratings (Chikky best of and DDT4N2).

And Watts, I'm gonna watch the 2 main event matches (world title 4 way, tag title match) of RDN at the weekend, hopefully.

11. Iron Saints vs. Nigel McGuiness & BJ Whitmer - ***
12. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Mike Quackenbush vs. Chuck Taylor - ****

Overall show rating - ***1/4

Overall tournament rating - ***1/4

The tournament was pretty good overall. It had it's high points but it also had some low points which is uncharacteristic of TPI but with the talent given, what can you do? Night 1 was solid. The undercard was hit and miss but the last 3 matches really delivered and helped elevate the show overall. Night 2 was a much better show than Night 1. The card was much more well rounded and less hit and miss. The big matches (Hero/Kingston and Taylor/Quack/Claudio) delivered and the undercard was very solid. Overall this wasn't the best TPI I've seen. In fact, it's one of the worse (second only to 2003). However, TPI is such a great tournament that it's tough to top it year after year so saying this is one of worse isn't such a terrible statement.

My breakout performer goes to Brent Albright. Albright made his IWA-MS debut and brought it the entire tournament. Decent match against Tank followed up by two good matches against Joker and Claudio. Albright has an upcoming booking at the SST and hopefully he gains more after that show.

My MVP was a tough decision and I ended up not having one because you could make serious cases for Taylor, Quack, and Claudio. All 3 guys had great matches and put on good performances. If you asked me each day to pick a MVP, my pick would probably change each day. That's how tough the decision was. Great performances by all 3 guys.

Finally, thank you Quack.

That's only match I seen from TPI so far I got to say it was disappointing to me (***1/4) after hearing all the great things about that match.

I absolutely loved it. They effectively told a few stories at a time. Chuck was attempting to make to a year as champion but Jacobs of all people was trying to stop this. Jacobs was trying regain the very title he threw in the trash just a couple years ago. Then, they put on a great match. They had a nice brawl to start the match which saw Jimmy hitting Chuck with a sick spear. When they made it to the ring it was still great. Chuck was going all out, hitting moves he normally wouldn't it. You could feel that Chuck desperately wanted to be a year long champion. The only real flaw that hurts the match is Chuck attacking Jimmy's knee late. I felt it was unnecessary at the time it began but one could argue Chuck was desperate and went to attack the one thing he hadn't attacked all match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I was really dissapointed with TPI. I have the second half of N2 left but N1 left a sour taste in my mouth, and I'm gonna do a review cause my opinion seems to differ with everyone else.

I know this is sort of random, but does anyone mark for themselves on dvds? I do.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Fith Year Festival: Finale

Delirious vs Colt Cabana.

Very comedic match, starts off funny and ends funny. Todd Sinclair getting involved really made me chuckle or bust out laughing. Overall, fun opener and did what it was ment to do. ** 1/2-** 3/4

Sara Del Rey and Allison Danger vs Jetta and Eden Black?

Who cares? [B]N/R because of lack of interest.

Jimmy Jacobs vs BJ Whitmer.
Very fun brawl, some pretty sick bumps really made it something else. Once Whitmer SHUTS UP and is in a brawling based match were he gets no to very little offense, he's slightly enjoyable. *** 3/4

Matt Sydal vs PAC
I can see why people hated cocky Sydal, he was just boring when it came to playing his role. As expected, it was just a flippy match. Pretty fun stuff. *** 1/2.

Brsicoe vs Briscoe
A match filled with MOVEZ~! and STIFFNESS~! The same thing you'd expect in a Briscoes match, but they really brought something extra that made it stand out. Somewhere on the borderline of either really good or great, **** or even **** 1/4. But no where near the **** 1/2 t hat I've seen commonly.

Naruki Doi and Shingo vs No Remorse Corps.
Great tag match by both teams. Alot of frequent tags on both teams, filled with it's share of spots and Intense moments. Davey needs to work on his heel work and learn that less is more in being a heel. Other then that, really great tag. **** 1/4.

Nigel Guinness vs Jimmy Rave.
Rave should have KEPT WITH THE LEG, ground the larger man instead of taking him on head on. Some of the spots here are sick, mostly the ones involving the guard rail. Can't say much more, good match. ****

Homicide vs Samoa Joe
Christ, this could have been SO much better. I'm confused if Homicide is face or heel in this match. I had some pretty high expectations, but it was just a mess for me. Juilis Smokes selling his hilarrious, he broke into a seizure after taknig and Ole kick. Crowd was hot, though the action wasn't all to there. Meh. *** - *** 1/4.

Overall-
GREAT buy. not one 'bad' match on the card. Had a fair share of every style and the crowd was hot for even the 'decent' matches. If you're looking for a great recent ROH show, this should be what you get.

*** 3/4 - **** Overall. Go buy it. [/I]
[B]

Who cares?

I remember the golden years.
