Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
You shoun't have a problem loving 6AS, and Without Remorse looked really good, but I gave Roddy and Nigel from DBDIV ****1/4. The main event from Breakout looks good but I have yet to see it. As for Double Feature, I don't plan on getting it myself. But then again how could you not enjoy two ROH shows for the prie of one?
Continueing with rating orders, I just placed my first ever on IVPvideos thanks to the help of you guys on here. I think it is a pretty good load for $25;
Best of Briscoe Brothers-Though I am hard on them (no sells), I figure Japan will bring out the best in them. Key matches include vs. Ibushi and Marufuji, and vs. Marufuji and Suguira.
Toryumon Wrestlejam-A fantastic DVD including Aries vs. Yokosuka, and Jack Evans vs. Genki Horiguchi vs. Akira Tozawa.
Toryumon WrestleJam 2-The most recent Wrestlejam. Shingo vs. Aries, and an Elimination 8 man 3 way tag match.
Best of NOAH 2006 V.02-Kobashi vs. KENTA and Kobashi vs. Marufuji. Also includes KENTA vs. Ishimori.
Best of NOAH 2006 V.03-This one has some good tags on it, but most of all it has the 10/29 "near *****" KENTA vs. Marufuji match.
Toryumon 06/30/2007 June 30th 2007-I heard Dragon Gate MOTY and had to get this one. New Hazard vs. Speed Muscle vs. Typhoon in three way six man tag action.
Best of Toryumon 2005 V.5-Features the majority of the King Of Gate tournament. Lots of good stuff with Shingo, BxB Hulk, Dragon Kid, Yokosuka, Ryo Saito, and CIMA involved.
NOAH 12/02/2007 December 2nd 2007-I saw Kobashi on the Joe vs. Kobashi ROH show and loved his style (anyone else asking for Kobashi vs. Strong?). I also heard about his successful battle of cancer and the emotion of his return match on this DVD. Should be good. Also has Morishima vs. Marufuji.
Plus I figured I would pass along that IVPvideos has a puro sampler for $0.25. This includes some nice looking matches from NOAH, NJPW, Dragon Gate, BJPW, and more. This is a steal to get into puro or as a chance to just see a bunch of good matches cheap. Definatly a deal no one on here should pass up.
A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.
