Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
I just watched New Hazard vs. KENTAmori from the 3/20 Dragon Gate show.
In the words of Borat,wow wow wee wah! This was crazy. This match match was intense. They truley made it feel like they hated each other. I seriously can not remember last time two guys dug in and truley looked like they were gonna murder each other. This could be KENTA and Ishimori showing the guys in the 'minor fed' that they were top notch and gonna take the GHC straps with them. KENAT and BxB were savage. KENTa got a bloody lip and BxB had blood in his mouth and coming out of his nose. The exchanges were super stiff and their really wasn't any down time. I thought this would surpase the match where New Hazard won the belts in quality. Unfortunately toward the end things got sloppy (I am looking right at BxB and KENTA's kicks) and quality went down. I also disliked the finish as on first viewing it looked like BxB was just sitting their looking at Shingo. On rewind I saw Taiji just barley holding him, but BxB didn't even make it look like a fight at that point. ****-****1/4
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 ****.
