Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
DBDIV was one of the first (the 4th or 5th) ROH DVD's I got just because of the cage, I had no idea who any guys in it were and I didn't know the story. I hated the match and still to this day will not give it above **** as I find it to have been the 2nd worst cage of death (H8 Club vs. H8 Club was worse).
The rest of that show is very good. Roddy and Nigel had a ****1/4 and Briscoes and Irish Airborne tore the house down. Plus Sonjay Dutt and Danielson certainly delivered.
Why doesn't ROH run IA as a full time team. ROH is heel heavy now and I would say that they could do some good stuff with whatever is left of the NRC, SnS, or AOTF. Not to forget, they can't have a bad match with the Briscoes.
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 ****.
