Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I stand corrected then. That was a pretty good match. I just remember the main event and that B-Boy was on that show and was shit like usual.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Shelley was always a damn good opener guy in ROH. Frickin' LOVED the opener to The Final Showdown, pitting Shelley against Roderick Strong. TNA should open more of their PPVs with Alex Shelley matches.

I will watch it again and get back to you, but there was no way it was that bad.

EDIT-The Shelley/Spanky opener (Early 05) was one of my favorite openers ever.

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 ****.

I was in the front row and I was bored out of my mind.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I watched the McGuinness vs. Danielson Epic Encounter II match from 4th row live and it was hard to see. I also watched it again when it came out on DVD. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I remember it was good, **** or so. It was a good technical match that requires patience and appreciation for technical work. It had great match psychology, like McGuinness' frustration that he couldn't do anything about Danielson's headlocks in the early part of the match. This kind of match psychology was very suitable because it occurred just after the Pure Title was unified with the World Title.

The worst part about watching the match live was that there was some stoner in the row in front of me shouting out shit every 10 seconds and it was really annoying.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Speaking of 2 out of 3 falls matches, can anyone give me an idea of how good the match between The Briscoes & The Second City Saints was from Death before Dishonor II Part 1?

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Only matches I was interested in watching.

ROH Caged Collision

Four Corner Survival
Bryan Danielson vs. Jimmy Jacobs vs. Tyler Black vs. Austin Aries
Fun FCS despite being slightly disappointing. The way Bison attacked Danielson was done from a pretty cool view. ***½-***¾

ROH World Title Match
Nigel McGuinness vs. El Generico
Great match, right on par with their GBH match from last year. ****

Steel Cage Warfare
Brent Albright, Roderick Strong, Erick Stevens, Jay Briscoe and Ace Steel vs. Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, Tank Toland, Bobby Dempsey and Adam Pearce
Personally I liked the way the match was booked. SnS had spent the entire feud using dirty tactics to beat Strong/Stevens/Albright but once locked in a cage and all out of tactics, they just got demolished. Not an amazing match but it still had some fun moments as well....and it was certainly better then Lethal Lockdown. ***½
