Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
Went to the F1RST Wrestling show last night-let me tell you...good stuff went down.
Most notably The Osirian Portal against The Northstar Express and Arik Cannon against Lince Dorado. Both matches were fantastic and in my view over four stars.
Overall F1RST wrestling is pry the top indy company in the country in terms of what they give the fans. The shows flow great, the matches put out big time, and all the guys in the back are great. I never regret spending money to see F1RST...so ya, when this show comes out you should buy it...
Post show I talked to Ryan Cruz and Darin Corbin and I learned that they would once again be teaming with Arik Cannon as team F1RST in the King of Trios. Cruz told me one of he goals in wrestling is to be able to have a match with Johnny Saint.
I also talked to Amasis, Ophidian, and Lince Dorado. Ophidian is dificult to speak with due to the fact that he stays in his snake gimmick even after the show...so he is puzzling, but Lince as usual is great to talk to. He is finishing up his match major now, and plans to be a high school teacher in the fall.
This was my first time talking with Amasis, and I can honestly say that besides maybe Arik Cannon and Pete Huge (and maybe Darin Corbin) he is the nicest guy I have met in the business. He is really humble and gives credit for all of his success to Quack and Hero who trained them. He also explained that after his ankle injury he will be always wearing full boots rather than going bare foot.
I also picked up a Brody In Japan 5 disc set (McQueen has converted me), The Greatest Matches Ever 1995, and a bootlegged copy of The Wrestler all for $35.
All that plus a post show White Castle run made for a very good night.
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 ****.
