Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Just finished watching ROH Driven for the first time and I think it is safe to say that Driven is now my favorite ROH show that i've seen. Granted I have not seen as many ROH shows as most of you guys but I really enjoyed every match and segment even the two squash matches. Great show.

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.
I actually brought myself to watch that too man.

And yea I agree with pretty much everythng you said. Just a mediocre match. Not entertainingly good or entertainingly bad, just really average.

I mark hard for Nagata's surprise hard buttsecks faces. Angle is just shit now.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

ROH: Chaos at The Cow Palace

1. Chris Hero vs. Human Tornado - ***1/2 (Perfect opener, Tornado is growing on me)

2. Roderick Strong vs. Claudio Castagnoli (FIP Heavyweight Title Match) - *** (Took too long to get going and generally slow, still good though)

3. Adam Pearce vs. Karl Anderson - **1/2 (Solid, unspectacular)

4. Delirious vs. Brent Albright - Didn't watch (I really cannot care for this anymore)

5. Rocky Romero & Davey Richards vs. TJ Perkins & Tony Kozina - *** (A bit messy in places but overall a solid match)

6. Rocky Romero & Davey Richards vs. Necro Butcher & Jimmy Jacobs - *** (LOL at the empty seats around the 'Palace, fun brawl)

7. Austin Aries vs. Bryan Danielson (Second Match In The Best of Three Series) - ***3/4 (Would've gotten 4 if the leg work wasn't ignored)

8. Nigel McGuinness vs. Jay Briscoe (ROH World Title Match) - *** (Good, nothing great. Ended a bit too soon IMO)

*Post match brawl/chaos was awesome.

Overall Thoughts: Very fun show. The fans here may have been some of the best ROH has ever had, really hot for 350, very respectful and just generally awesome. No super MOTYCs, but the show flowed well and does have some good stuff in there.

Overall Score: 7/10.

Just a personal preferance thing I guess.

I was thinking of buying this show. After those ratings it really might have just persuaded me.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Mystery, I've been watching the 1st night of IWC A Call to Arms 4 and yeah you can start getting mad at yourself for not going now. Been a REAL good show so far.

Might have a review up later.
