Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
My Highspots Brody 5 disc set came today, so I've been watcing a couple matches:
Bruiser Brody & King Curtis v Giant Baba & The Destroyer (1/5/79):
Well, Destroyer's in it so it's automatically *****. Or not. It was pretty good, but Curtis is just kinda plodding in there, working over Destroyer's arm without any real vigour, but the action picks up when Brody gets in there (who just seems to inject a huge rush of energy into absolutely everything he does). Baba (a little surprisingly) takes the fall here after a King Kong Knee Drop. Btw, King Curtis' forehead is fucking disgustingly cut up! He doesn't blade or anything in this match, but the scars are plain as day. **1/2
Bruiser Brody v Abdullah the Butcher (4/10/81):
Bruiser and the Butcher hack each other to pieces in the land of the rising sun. It's just a brawl around ringside really, with Abby juicing after about 8 seconds, and Brody following suit a couple minutes later after getting stabbed in the head with whatever Abby pulls out of his tights (I bet some sick fuck... never mind), before the ref' decides he's had enough and throws the match out. Of course both guys continue to knock each other about some more after the match, and Brody swings his chain around which is awesome really, before they end up finally being seperated. Nothing spectacular, but it's deifinitely fun to watch Brody just stand in the middle of the ring and swipe his forehead about 7 times so he bleeds like a pig. "Fuck keyfabe, I'm Bruiser fucking Brody!" **1/2
Bruiser Brody v Giant Baba (4/27/81):
Bruiser pins Baba *agian*! Fun match, consisting mostly of Brody punching Baba in the head really hard while Baba tries to get away with chopping Brody back, only to fail epically since his hand's injured (I'm not sure how, but he comes in with it all taped up and sells it as such) and chopping King Kong Brody in the head is just stupid to begin with anyway. No surprise, but Brody bleeds in this match. **3/4
Bruiser Brody v Dory Funk Jr. (10/9/81):
SPOILER: This match has blood in it! Plenty of it too, and the crowd really get behind Dory as Brody beats the shit out of him. Nice story with the "uphill struggle" dynamic seeing as how Brody in the match effectively makes it a crazy brawl right off the bat, and when Dory finally manages to get back in it the crowd go pretty apeshit. Finish is kinda bullshit in that the ref' takes a (shitty) bump after standing in the way of Dory's suplex, which allows Brody to grab his chain and start killing bitches. Both guys brawl for the next couple minutes, destroying anybody that tries to stop them, before a guy that I've never actually seen before comes down to help Brody hit the top rope knee drop on Dory. That crazy Terry Funk dude then gets involved to help his brother and both he and Brody try their best to cave each others' face in. Brody v Terry is set for November and I'm looking forward to that bad boy just a little. ***1/2
