Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
My iPod died earlier in the week while I was watching Scarface. That or it realized I had the Mike Levy incident next in my video playlist.. It couldn't handle that final fight scene. I actually plan to buy a Sony Zune. 80 GB and it has a much bigger screen.
BxB Hulk and Shingo vs. Masato Yoshino and Naruki Doi ****1/4
This match was better than expected. Shingo sold like a God and Masato wrestled like Jesus. Naruki was on his game and BxB was crisp. These was only two parts that I really cringed at and both were mega no sells by Doi, but it was ok in the fast pace of the match. Lots of Dragon Gate fun here, but also some solid technical work by BxB and Yoshino. I would have bought BxB tapping to the Sol Nacianto at one point, and I rarley buy that move. My match of the year, just a tip above of the 3/2 NOAH tag match.
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 ****.
