FIFTH YEAR FESTIVAL: DAYTON

We start things off with the regular interview with the new champ. nigel represents him, stating that he only comes out to kick ass. And like clockwork, out comes Irish Airborne. They want an oppurtunity, and that is fufilled as Morishima comes out and BACKDROP DRIVERS~! them to some high school gym show. Its a good idea to establish him and his finisher before his matches.

This all leads into Nigel and Colt vs. Jacobs and Albright, which is a good match. Nigel is a great seller, really working that ankle injury, even limping into his lariats and such. Some other guys (coughJoecoughAriescough) could learn from him. Nigel wins with the rebound, making him 3-0 on the Festival with pinfalls over Jacobs, The Briscoes, and TJ Perkins with that move. ***1/4

We get a promo from BJ on his title shot and how he will take advantage of it. Good promo, but the opne thing I could think was that they should have shown replays of the events he described.

Jimmy Rave vs. Sterling Keenen - Ug. I hate Rave. Keenen's new thing seems to be that he's a Punk knock off. Rave uses his boring set and wins with the heel hook. Yawn. *3/4

Nigel, avenging a run in from the first segment, runs in and attacks Rave. They have a Fight Without Honor at Finale.

Lacey vs. Daizee Haze - These women have Another lesson some members of the roster could learn. They hate each other, so they DON'T WRESTLE. THEY BRAWL. It makes sense, and it gets over, and the crowd treats them like men. Imagine that. This is a damn heated little brawl and I actually want to see the rematch, so it worked. Lacey wins a crappy finish when Jacobs runs in and spears Daizee. ***

Rebecca Bayless tries to interview Delirious, sitting in the crowd. he is silent. Aries then cuts a promo on how he will find the next generation of stars to lead.

Homicide vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Jay Briscoe - This is an extremely entertaining match. They do a damn cool 3 way match, with all your regular spots and a lot of high impact stuff and quick transitions. In a cool touch, we see clips of everyone (even Danger) from the first show. Cide wins with a top rope Ace Crusher. ***1/2

Matt Sydal vs. Austin Aries - This is for Sydal's Brave Gate title. Now, let me preface this by saying THIS IS A GOOD MATCH. But, and theres always a but, they fucked it up. They took what was billed as a high flyers showcase, and Sydal worked an ankle for half the match. Think about that. And then, even worse, Aries picks and chooses when to sell it, killing the crowd, even doing his missile dive! Retarded. Not as good as their great Arena Warfare match. Sydal wins clean with an SSP. ***

We then get a interview with Lacey and Jimmy, with Lacey starting to grow even closer to Jimmy. I heart this storyline. Classic stuff. Maybe I've been watching too much 96 ECW, but Jacobs is justn SO Raven in how ahead of the curve he is. He should definatly be given a stable to lead over the next 6 months.

Larry Sweeney intros Tank Toland as Hero's new trainer, and he squashes Mitch Franklin. Kranklin is actually lookin good and could be a main roster guy pretty soon. Toland will be great in this role.

Six Man Mayhem - YES. Let me say what i put in the media section. I have always been a fan of tag wrestling and multi man matches, and this was perfect in that aspect. Everyone has a role. Pelle, the underdog. Claudio, the HUGE chickenshit. Shingo, the international powerhouse out for wins and gold. Roderick, the scumbag with a lot of enemies. Cross, the high flyer. And the clinically insane Mark Briscoe.In the end, everyones role plays in, with Strongs gruges running him out of the match, Mark going crazy and diving out of the match, Shingo brawling outside during the finish, Cross going for a huge dive, and Claudio sneaking in and hitting him with a HUGE uppercut for the win, while underdog Pelle dives in, so close to saving it but no cigar. LOVE IT. Best match so far this year. ****1/4

Davey Richards vs. Samoa Joe - This is another great match, with some BRUTAL stiff shots, like the infamous kick to the back of Daveys head, and the finish. Davey gets over as a true scumbag, with low blows and efusing to shake. No one buys Davey winning (he hits the SSP and gets no heat), but its still great, stiff stuff, very reminiscent of Joe vs. Strong. Joe catches Davey up top and hits the Apron Buster for the win. Awesome. ****1/4

BJ Whitmer vs. Morishima - Sorry, I don't have much to say here. It is very similar to Morishima vs. Cide, with a hot opening brawl and a great finish, but the crowd isn't as hot and the middle isn't as good. Still dug it, though. Morishima wins with a BACKDROP DRIVER~! ***1/4

We close with the Briscoes talking about winning the tag belts tommorow, and Aries talking to some prospects off screen. To be continued...

OVERALL: So far, this is the best 5YF show. There is no one-two punch so far as good as the 6MM and Joe vs. Davey, and while the main is the weakest so far, it still works. The angles work, the opener is fun, and I love it. Every show has had great undercards with stuff above *** pretty much exclusivly, so the two big matches, with one the best so far, put it over the top. Best show so far this year. Back with Chicago later.

The match lasted 17-20 mins and was incredibly slow paced the entire match until the last few mins. Also, it was very anti-climatic. Maybe I need to watch the match again but the two teams didn't seem to gel well together.

Fellow friends of the indies. I think I'm going to pick up a couple RoH DVDs from the sale and possible some PWG in the future. I'm willing to spend about $100 (still got birthday money ). Any recommendations?

From what I read the psycology was really good, the selling of Sicodelico's big power moves, and the Ice creams stepped their game up big. I'll wait till I see it.

The finish was SICK, wasn't it?

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

Just watch the 6MM from Dayton. Wow. Crazy, crazy action, I was marking out loads. The psycology and stuff with Pelle was awesome, he's really improving. The ranas he and Cross didi to Claudio were amazing (well credit to Claudio, he is the base) and the finish just F'N ruled.

Making a complete guess cause I have no idea what you have or are looking for but..

BOLA 2006 shows for PWG
ROH: Glory By Honor V Night 2 & Unified

pretty much everything from 2006 ROH is good with the exception of the last few months worth of shows, nothing IMO is worth getting except Final Battle 2006 and Honor Reclaims Boston (which was a so-so show).

Yeah, I was thinking about picking up the Battle of LA DVDs. I talked to Ocire around the time he went live and he loved it.

I have GOB and Unified. I'm curious about which Five Year Anniversary shows I should get.

The finish was sick but not something that made me go "Holy shit!" because it's something I've seen before.

I actually just got the FYF shows last night so I haven't watched them yet, I hear so far Chicago and NYC are the standout shows.

BOLA 2006 or even 2005 are good buys if your looking to get into some of the better PWG shows so I can highly recommend them.

Just rewatched Los Ice Creams vs. Lince Dorado & Sicodelico, Jr. and I'll go ahead and boost the rating from **3/4 to ***.
