Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Saw ROH First year anniversary show last night.
Have a couple of ratings for that show.
Bryan Danielson vs. Samoa Joe - ***3/4
Low Ki vs. AJ Styles vs. Paul London - ****1/4-****1/2
Paul London Vs. Xavier - ***3/4-****( Paul London is so good as an underdog face)


I watched a little bit of the Clusterfuck mainevent, but i decided to drop it about halfway through.
I was pretty tired too at the moment.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I'd agree with those ratings but I'd only go a high **** for the 3 way.

The Briscoes had a great match against each other as well. **** if memory recalls and that was their "worst" match against each other.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Watched Kobashi v Akiyama from 7/04 about an hour ago, and DAMN it's still as awesome as I remember. I still don't think it's ***** though, for some reason.

I liked how they seemed to break it down into 3 parts - Kobashi picking Jun apart with his chops; Akiyama lands a huge knee smash and the tide turns, allowing him to go after Kobashi's neck for the Exploder; huge epic finishing stretch - and it just escalates from move to move. Kobashi legit spitting blood after that suplex off the apron was crazy... then taking a fucking Exploder from the tope to the floor was completely in-fucking-sane!

The finishing stretch was, like I said, epic, but it didn't seem absurd like a lot of the high-end heavyweight matches seemed to get since '95. Akiyama also kicking out of the moonsault was like "going over" without actually pinning Kobashi since the moonsault was the equivalent to death next to everything but the Burning Hammer. Of course, it's only appropriate that Akiyama finally goes down to said Burning destruction, and after it's done you realise you just saw one HELL of a war.

Like I said, I wouldn't go the full 5 snowflakes, but I'm really not sure what's holding it back for me. I just haven't got that "5 STAR feeling" about any puro match in a while. Guess I should go back and watch Misawa against that Jumbo fella' from 9/1/90 (which is better than 6/8 btw ) and see if I get it back. ****3/4

That match London match reminds me...I really miss Xavier lol. I know he's still wrestling but...damn.


"I pledge allegiance... to the greatness
Of the conqueror who stands before me
And to his dominance; For which I stand
One Cenation; Under John
Now divisible
With no more hustle, loyalty or respect for all!"

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Yeah when I was watching the AJ DVD he had a match with Xavier that was pretty good. He reminds me of Joey Mattthews in that he works a "WWE-like" style and it gets so much heat with ROH-Bots, even though the matches can be really strong.

Also, new videowire:

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I don't really think the ROH fans resent Xavier because of his ability, I think it's more so there were other capable wrestlers at the time (Styles and London to name a couple) who were could've held the strap. I think they hate his booking rather than him as a wrestler.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

I was wondering should I buy Chickfight Collection: Vol.4-6 or Shimmer Vols 5 & 6.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

Yeah that's true -Mystery-, I always wondered why Daniels wasn't champion instead of Xavier.
