Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread
Bryan Danielson vs. Sal Rinauro- **1/4
Jimmy Rave vs. Shingo Tagaki- ***1/4
Irish Airborne vs. Colt Cabana & Jimmy Jacobs- **1/2
Brent Albright vs. Christopher Daniels- ***1/2
Strong vs. Tolland vs. Hero vs. Bricoe- ***
Austin Aries vs. Claudio Castagnoli- ***1/4
Davey Richards vs. Jay Briscoe- ***1/2
Delirious vs. Matt Sydal- ***1/2
Joe & Homicide vs. Corino & Pearce- ***3/4
Overall: Looking at the star ratings and the insane amount of matches that reach ***+, I still wouldn't classify it as a must buy. It's close, but the problem is that a LOT of the matches follow the same pattern and style, meaning if you watch Rave vs Shingo, and then you watch Aries vs Claudio or Sydal vs Delirious, it feels like the same match with different wrestlers. Also, the crowd sucks, God awful. If you don't mind the matches getting a bit repetitive, then buy this DVD. Albright looks impressive in his debut against Daniels in the second MOTN, while Corino & Pearce battle Joe & 'Cide in a great, old school hardcore match. Sydal and Delirious would have easily stolen the show if they didn't lose all their pacing and flow mid-match for a few minutes, really awkward moment that took it down a lot. By the way, Tolland is SHORT, but strong. Anyway, really enjoyable DVD and well worth the purchase, but I wouldn't classify it as a must-buy due to the things I mentioned.
P.S.- On commentary, Jimmy Bower comes in during Mark Briscoe's match and says that the reason he's missing his two front teeth is because a guy punched him in the mouth at a bar. He then said that 20 minutes later, when the guy was starting to leave, Mark hit him with a SSP off the building. I couldn't stop laughing after that, it was hysterical.
