Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread
ROH Proving Ground 2009 Night 1
Shawn Osborne vs. Brad Attitude
Meh. Not really impressed by either man tbh. Nothing to the match either.
Bison Smith vs. Sal Rinauro
Bison's awesome. Great sqauash match. Poor Sal though.
Erick Stevens, Roderick Strong & Bobby Dempsey vs. Kenny King, Rhett Titus & Chasyn Rance
Awesome stuff. The match owned for several reasons.
YRR (I'm including Titus in it seeing as he's tagging with King now) coming out to Swagger Like Us. Officially the best entrance theme ever now.
Bobby Dempsey in general
Titus' musty thrust
Bobby Dempsey girating
Bobby Dempsey pulling down the straps
Prazak's weight jokes about Dempsey. "Dempsey didn't pull his weight with Sweet N Sour which is funny seeing as he had so much of it"
Good match too.
Austin Aries vs. Necro Butcher
Nice match. Aries' gimmick is brilliant. As too his brilliant entrance theme.
Bryan Danielson & Jerry Lynn vs. Jimmy Jacobs & Delirious
Did what it needed too I guess but not much else. Danielson should be being used miles better than how he currently is though. Nice little story with Dragon and Jacobs and the spit. Really shoddy camera work towards the end though. Nice work having Danielson get the pin on Jimmy after losing to him twice.
Nigel McGuinness vs. Brent Albright
Loved Nigel's jacket. A mate of mine has got a Jamaican one. Can be a bitch how they zip down from the back too though as I found out. Not a massive fan of Albright and not a fan of how Pearce is gay over him. Better match than I was expecting though. Some good action.
Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The Dark City Fight Club
Again a better match than I originally expected for. First viewing of DCFC and they were pretty good imo. Davis looked particuarly impressive. Shame that ROH's tag division all of a sudden blows since Gabe left and Pearce came in. There's basically these two and the Wolves.
Davey Richards vs. Tyler Black
Great match. Davey fucking owned shit up for the entirety of it. Suprised at how little attack pretty boy Tyler Black got in. Next to none befofe the end. Sweeney looked the shit at ringside with his poolside attire and flip flops. Davey's been incredible since he came back from Japan. Great work with the crowd too as well as in the match. Enjoyed this a lot.
Better show than I expected looking at the card. Davey/Tyler was excellent and there's some really good midcard matches on to. Surely common sense would have told them to release it after the PPV as most people would have been bemused at how the Sweeney/Dempsey thing moved on. Kinda ironic that Danielson was shown doing an MMA style warm up after recent reports too. Good show all in all though.
