No Commentary > Bad Commentary > Japanese Commentary

It's just way to distracting for me.

Those ratings were pretty low for BOLA there. It looks like the shows all had a bunch of solid matches. I haven't seen that one myself. PWG DVDs are always on sale but the BOLA and All Star Week Ends are never included in those sales. Very annoying.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I actually don't mind the Japanese commentary, especially during the hotest parts of a match when the commentator shows some passion that I think adds to the match.

For example, I loved at the end of Morishima/Misawa, the end of the match wouldn't have the same impact in my mind if it was for the commentator yelling "BAAACKAADROOOPPPPUUUUUUUU~!!!!!!"

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I agree about the commentary adding to the match. It adds another layer of atmosphere for when I watch Puro.

That is why it's called organized crime.

BOLA 06 improved on 05 but there were still too many hit-or-miss matches or matchups that had better versions elsewhere. You really only need the last night unless you need to see Super Dragon & Necro Butcher just take years off their careers in a brutal brawl and a good triple threat for the tag titles.

Very meh.
There is a reason why Eddie contemplated just leaving the arena during the middle of the show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Has anybody watched any recent JAPW? If so, what shows would you recommend?

They currently have a buy 2 get 1 free sale. It ends January 3, 2009.

It was better than I thought it was going to be and it was better than most of the other matches that night. Now, if you want to see a trainwreck of a PWG show watch the Tango & Cash Invitational. Night 1 was horrendous & Night 2 wasn't much better.

You my boy haven't heard the FMW English Commentary

featuring such greatness as the two commentators making up their own storylines and changing Combat Toyoda to Mother In Law Toyoda and never once explaining why..

Oh and they tried to make out Megumi kudo and Toyoda were lesbians...


Dear god they sucked..


Hang on... this is my first post here? fucking hell...
