Yeah, he might not be there yet in wrestling skill, but holy shit he is an awesome heel. For some of his best heel work this year check Bruised (w/ Chuck vs Incoherence) and New Star Navigation (vs DONST), really awesome.

Yeah, I don't remember a indy wrestler getting booed that loudly on a consisent basis than Icarus. The whole KoW segment was ruined because they booed the hell out of Icarus & can barely hear what he said.

I have to agree watts, that audio guy did suck. Not hearing Blue Monday = No ratings, also Icarus has got to have the most heel heat in all of indy wrestling. I've never heard someone get booed so loud, once Blue Monday hits the whole crowd just starts booing like crazy. He might not have amazing wrestling skills (that's what Akuma's for) but damn is he a fuckin' awesome heel.

ROH SOTF 2007

1. Qualifying Match: Brent Albright vs. Roderick Strong - **3/4 (Why they booked heel/heel I'll never know, match was decent)

2. Qualifying Match: Chris Hero vs. Karl Anderson - **1/2 (Machine Gun was very bland here. Match was average)

3. Qualifying Match: Rocky Romero vs. TJ Perkins - * (Eh. Moves and nothing else. I wish Rocky would like, at least try to be a heel)

4. Qualifying Match: Delirious vs. Austin Aries - ***1/4_1/2 (Really good stuff)

5. Qualifying Match: Davey Richards vs. Claudio Castagnoli - *** (Like their TPI match but a tad better)

6. Qualifying Match: Nigel McGuinness vs. Bryan Danielson - ***3/4 (Great stuff, very confusing finish takes it down from 4)

7. Qualifying Match: Human Tornado vs. Shane Hagadorn vs. Tony Kozina - ** (Did its job well)

8. Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Necro Butcher - *** (Fun brawl)

9. Survival of the Fittest 2007 Final Elimination Match - ***3/4 (Really fun stuff, Chris is indeed awesome)

Overall Thoughts: Fun show. Not the best matches but a nice, intimate feeling with the arena and a really good crowd.

overall Score: 6/10.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Ok so I watched the Kurt Angle vs Yuji Nagata "Fake IWGP" belt match from the dome, quick run-down on the match.

Both guys come out, Crowd is 100% pro Nagata. They start off with some strikes (nagata is noticbly holding back a bit) then proceed to belly to belly each other a couple times. They then start to get into some pretty basic chain wrestling which culminates in a long and non-exciting figure four spot where Nagata is trying to escape the hold, at least the crowd is behind him. Angle is getting almost no reaction and it's rather funny actually, anyways Nagata makes it too the ropes and the hold is broken. Kurt works the leg some more but goes for the dreaded ankle lock a little too early and nagata escapes and places Angle in an armbar. Now were talking because Nagata starts going into overdrive with his "I'm gonna shit out a block of ice" facial expressions, good stuff. Kurt eventually gets out and its time for him to get kicked a few times, but then more suplexes! Nagata locks in the crossface but now it's time for the multiple Ankle Lock/Crossface reversals. At this point both guys pretty much start running through the motions with there signature moves. They start hitting each other again to soften each other up, eventually Nagata takes down angle again with another belly to belly and set ups for what looks to be a buzzsaw kick but angle catches the leg and we get one last ankle lock before Nagata taps.

Not really much story behind this other than Nagata obviously wants New Japan's property back, and Angle continuing to think he's still great. Pretty uninspired match but the crowd was firmly behind Nagata which helped, sadly it just seemed like these guys were going through the motions when this really could have had a big match feel. Not exactly a bad match, but not good either and was in a lot of parts on the dull side. - ** 1/2

Oh and just to clarify i'm getting tougher on rating shit this year, so from now on if my ratings seem lower that they used to now you know why.

, could not put it better myself.

Any particular reason for the lower ratings?

I dunno, I just got done watching the match and I thought it was pretty good.

Not sure of the rating necessarily but I would think atleast somewhere in the ***'s.
