You're probably right. I can't really remember.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

So I go to my computer to order some ROH to find out... Dayton and Chicago havent been released??? What the fuck??? Anger...

-------------------------------------------

FIFTH YEAR FESTIVAL REVIEWS
Got home last night to find these sitting at my door, so happy. Stayed up till 4 last night watching NYC, and didn't leave my house till 5 minutes before a practice to finish Philly. So pumped.

NYC
We start things off with a generic "heel challenger" promo from Rave. We've all seen this before. By the way, these all have a special intro video and menu music. While the Milestone Series was one of the best runs of shows ever from anyone, these feel special, something those lacked.

Pelle Primeu vs. Takeshi Morishima
Morishima automatically sets himself up as a huge heel, coming out to The Champ is Here, and squashing Pelle in 10 seconds with a BACKDROP DRIVER~! DUD

Delirious vs. Adam Pearce
This was your average Pearce match of the night. I prefered their match in September, but whatever. The crowd was hot and it served its purpose. **1/4

Daniels and Sydal cut a promo about being left out in the lists of great tag teams in ROH. Daniels can really pull off the looking away from the camera deal, but Sydal looks like an 8 year old geek. Not good.

SHIMMER Tag Match
Alexa Thatcher is hot. That's all I got out of this. It's hard to take these girls as serious wrestlers when they do sexual innuendo rollup spots. Either way, Lacey runs in a few minutes in and this never really gets started. *

Jack Evans vs. Jimmy Jacobs vs. Shigo vs. Xaiver
I've got no beef with Xaiver, and the other 3 are some of my favorite guys on the roster, so this should be great. The opening minutes are great, with Xaiver hitting one of the coolest things ever on Jimmy (a powerbomb, rolled into an alley oop, rolled into another powerbomb, rolled into a piledriver), and it settles down once he goes out. Jimmy is out soon after, and Shingo and Evans have a fun little exhibition, with Jack pulling out the win after a 630. Great stuff. ***1/2

Joe comes out and cuts a goodbye promo while calling out Morishima. Nigel comes out and they brawl. Good, intense stuff, the promo and the brawl.

BJ Whitmer vs. Brent Albright
This match... this fucking match. I forget who said it, but it was legit like watching someone play Smackdown. 4 big spots, nothing original, no nearfalls or anything, and thats it. 4 spots. And don't bust out "Taker vs. Mankind was 2" because it wasn't, and it told a story. Watch any half-decent Tanaka vs. Awesome match, you'll see those have a story. This was just bumps. But the crowd was into it, and the spots were crisp, at least, so huzzah. ***1/4, I guess.

Daniels and Sydal vs. Aries and Strong
Started good, Aries and Strong had a good heat segment, then Daniels and Sydal had a dull one, then right as it starts to pick up, Aries gets hurt and it breaks down. They salvage whatever spots they can, but its all disjointed and no one buys Gen Next winning. Nowhere near the Gut Check match, even pre-injury. ***1/4 You all know what happens post-match.

Cide cuts a funny promo on Rave. And Rebecca Bayless is pretty hot. That's all.

Nigel and Colt vs. The Briscoes
This was great stuff. See, this was a bit of a spotfest too, at least the closing half, but it flowed, unlike BJ-Brent. Nigel gets a pin with a rebound lariat while evrything goes crazy around him, which would prove to be a mistake in hindsight. ***3/4. Joe runs out to brawl with Nigel, so Morishima comes out, leading to...

Samoa Joe vs. Takeshi Morishima
Oh, this is awesome. These two just go all out. Morishima is gonna improve so much having all these big matches in ROH as opposed to 2-4 a year in NOAH.These too beat the fuck out of each other, and the crowd is hot as hell. Joe gets BACKDROP DRIVER~!'d, Morishima gets Muscle Buster'd, and Joe chokes him out clean in the end. Rematch, please. ****1/4

Next, we get what I assume is the first in a series of videos highlighting the year. This is on feuds of the year, and features Nigel vs. Rave, Nigel vs. Dragon, Dragon vs. KENTA, Dragon vs. Homicide, Homicide vs. Cabana, Cabana vs. Jacobs, Jacobs vs. Whitmer, ROH vs. CZW, Cide vs. Corino, Cide and Joe vs. Briscoes, and Joe vs. Dragon. Strange they left out Cide vs. Pearce, but whatever.

Homicide vs. Jimmy Rave
This felt like a small dessert after the main course of Joe vs. Morishima. Still damn good, with Cide cheating because he can, and Jimmy pulling out all the stops, Super Rave Clash included, to win. Rave would be so much better if he built towards the heel hook instead of just randomly grabbing it, but he's the one main eventing New York City shows, not me, so whatever. Definatly good stuff. ***1/2

We close it out with Evans being found under some sort of heavy object, and Rebecca Bayless looking at the supposed perp off camera. To be continued...

OVERALL: Great show. Not one of the best ever, but right under that level. But most importantly, it made me want to see the rest of the series, and thats what matters. Highly reccomended.

Will be back with a Philly review soon, probably.

The match itself sucked because, as you said, it was spot....wait...spot...wait. It's not really a match actually, it's a visual sepctacle. However, you have to admit, the spots were AWESOME, and it's a must-see just to see all the spots. Have the fast foward button ready though.

And I'm glad you enjoyed Briscoes vs McGuinness/Cabana, I wasn't expecting much from it but the match ended up being really, really good, and the team finisher used by McGuinness & Cabana looked sick.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I'm waiting to just go to the 4/27 and i'll buy as much of the 5YF as I can then, but great review PaiMei making this show sound really good and I'm looking forward to this one. Also it's great to see Becky back in ROH she aways was cute.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Ya, the spots were definatly all super crisp, but like I said, they weren't really original. One of those guys has to be a huge ECW fan, becuase they built the feud around the awesome bomb, the opening spot has been used by Awesome many a time, and the finish was also from ECW, a great 95 show called Double Tables. But hey, I can live with Brent Albright emulating Mike Awesome and beating the shit out of each other. but let's just say BJ Whitmer is no Masato Tanaka.

Does anyone know how often smartmark has a sale? I was hoping they'd have an easter one or something, but apparently not...
