Add in KENTA-Dragon, and you've got one of my favourite ROH dvds period
True, by the time it got to the Ladder War I had loved it anyway, so that was just the icing on the cake really. Really insane, Canadian v Redneck icing.

Driven also happens to my one of my favourite ROH DVDs too.

And Morishima/Rave from that show seemed fine to me as well. Maybe just because I've never liked Rave at all, so seeing a big fat guy kill him was entertaining.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Rave to me seems so much more effective in shorter matches which is why I think I enjoyed it a lot. ROH needs more squash-type/quicker matches on of the things that bothers me about the promotion is a lot of upper card matches are longer than they should be. Especially with multiple false finishes being a regular thing given that more time can easily mean more overkill.

Uh...Generico is Mexican dude.

I enjoyed Driven more than Man Up too. In fact, Driven may be my favorite ROH release ever.

I gave Dragon-McGuinness ***** and Dragon-KENTA ****1/2, btw. I'm usually not one to knock off points for no-selling finishers, but KENTA no-selling the G2S kind of irked me.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Although it's not the best, the frist Steenerico/Briscoes match is pretty overlooked.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Are you talking about the one in Philly for FYF or the match at Driven? (I know the Philly match was their first and that's probably the one you're talking about, but with the Driven talk I wasn't sure if you meant that one or the other one)

The Philly one. I remember after live people were saying ****1/2+ (Hell, Glazer said potentially 5), it came off worse on DVD (fuck ROH's shitty camera angles sometimes) but was still really, really fun.

I enjoyed the Philly one quite a bit too, but yeah, a lot of the live reports overrated it something huge. I read ****1/2 and ****3/4 from somewhere. I think I ended up giving it ***3/4, which isn't exactly bad.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

^ I was one of the people who saw it live, and thought it was fucking amazing. Then ROH's camera & editing people had to fuck it up on the dvd....why would you change a perfectly good camera angle, to a shitty one at the last second so no one watching the DVD can see a tornado DDT on the outside!

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

PWG Dio De Los Dangerous

Ronin & Scorpio Sky v.s The Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson)-***1/2
Frankie Kazarian v.s Karl Anderson-***1/2
Hook Boomberry & T.J. Perkins v.s Los Luchas (Zokre & Phoenix Star)-***1/2
Human Tornado v.s Necro Butcher-***3/4
The Dynasty (Scott Lost & Joey Ryan) v.s Incoherence (Delirious & Hallowicked)-N/A
PWG Title Match: Roderick Strong v.s Karl Anderson v.s Human Tornado-***1/4 (I thought Human Tornado's selling in this match just sucked. Also kind of underwhelming match when you think that was to decide a NEW PWG champion.)

Overall this show was pretty great. Nothing below *** in my book, but nothing really blew away anything else.
