TANA-FUCKING-HASHI USES THE CLOVERLEAF! He beat Hirooki Goto with it in a match many feel was one of the best matches last year. Plus Dean Malenko and Dory Funk Jr. used that move too therefore the Texas Cloverleaf rules the fucking school.

Speaking of Dory Funk, I also have gone ahead and purchased that wonderful Brody set of Highspots even though I have everymatch on the 1st disk (aside from one match) on a disk I already have, but its not the firsttime I have the same match on multiple disks. Might honestly be the last thing I buy for many months seeing as i'm rapidly approaching my breaking point concering the place where I earn my wages.

Unemployment for a month or two sounds like fucking heaven right now and I could use the time to catch up on my DVD's.

It wasn't that good. ***1/2 is what the match was. It was fun and solid enough. Totally one of his better matches there, along with his tag match w/AJ vs Dragon/Davey and his match vs Danielson @ BOLA.

I don't mind ROH like so seem to do. Yeah, I'm more for PWG & Chikara but ROH is just as good imo. A New Level is fantastic, I'm only 4 matches in and love it so that says something. Buy it. It could prove any dislike you have for ROH at the time wrong.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

1. I don't have a 'beef' with ROH persay...I am just getting tired of it. Back in the day when I first started watching it (Late 06) it all flowed better, storylines were richer, and there was a stronger focus on wrestling. ROH is trying to hard to be the next TNA/become a mainstream thing. And to be mainstream the product has changed. Storylines were once 'You hit me so hard I went deaf, now I am gonna kill you', to todays 'I'm a lizard man who can't talk but I'm still gonna ask the Shimmer girl out on a date.' Don't get me wrong, I think Gabe is the smartest booker in wrestling and still writes gernius storyline, ala Aries and Jacobs. I feel ROH is watered down in product and selling out to appeal to the mainstream. And I hate the newswires. I could kill myself after reading them.

2. On Jack Evans and Daniels, I have seen a lot of people online give it ***3/4, but I think it was better than that. I think many people look over the fact that there was a good story in the match just because Jack Evans was in the match. I need to watch it a second time, but there really isn't any way that I think it would go below ****.

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

If you're talking about the Evans/Daniles match on PWG Sells Out I think I would give it ****. It turned out to be better a lot better than expected and has made me rethink how I feel about Evans (I always thought of him has the big spot guy). It did tell a story and was a good wrestling match, once again I wasn't expecting this out of Evans.

Now for a match review,

ROH Crowning a Champion, Low-Ki vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Spanky vs. Doug Williams in a 1 hour Iron Man Match to crown the first ROH Champion.

The story behind this match was that Low-Ki hated Christopher Daniels for not respecting the "Code of Honor." At the previous show Low-Ki choked him out and it took a bunch of guys to pull him off. Not much to it but Daniels it was all that was needed in the match.

What you got here was 1 hour of great technical wrestling. They kept things pretty slow at first, which I didn't mind at all. Daniels got a pin on Low-Ki to take the lead which he would hold for a while. Low-ki was at -1, Daniels at 2, and Williams and SPanky at 0. Low-KI took a rest on the outside of the ring for a few minutes after he was pinned. Once he returned to the ring Low-Ki would score a win over Spanky and Williams which put him in the lead with about 25 minutes left. This pretty much put Williams and Spanky out of the match as they were both at -1. Low-Ki was able to survive about 1 minute in a Dragon Sleeper as time expired. Low-Ki wins witht he final score being Low-Ki 3, Daniels 2, Williams -1, and Spanky -1

Now the wrestling was simplyincredible but I think the pinfalls could have been used to keep all 4 guys in the match. Daniels didn't get pinned once in the match, while Spanky and Williams didn't score any points. I was OK with the way things were going when the score was Low-Ki 1, Daniels 2, Spanky -1, and Williams 0
I would have let Spanky get a pin on Daniels. This would have set up a three way tie and Doug Williams would still have been in the match as he would take the lead with a fall. I think it would have created a much more exciting ending with all 4 guys still having a chance to win.

Still I was glued to my TV for most of the match and there was never a boring moment. All 4 guys put on a great show in the almost 100 degree gym. The falls could have been done better but it didn't hurt the overall match too much.

****1/2

For those keeping score, ROH is on their last case of Vol. 9. Once those are gone, the first edition of Vol. 9 is history as well. That will be the next title to sell out.
