Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

If something looks unofficial and fan-made, it's that cover right there. Looks like KENTA got his fucking head kicked in, or at least the jaw.

Other than that, good news (if legit). Hopefully they'll release one of McGuinness as well.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It's on the ROH site so it's pretty likely to be real.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I think the fact that it's a crappy cover would be a dead giveaway of it being real...

All kidding aside, the idea is solid but the colour (supposed to reflect Danielson's shorts?) is veering into fuschia pink territory, the overlayed rendered clouds (supposed to be lightning?) are too much and look bad, plus the stills are rubbish, especially the main pic. Nigel called him albino in a promo for a reason guys.

The worst part is that it's not a multi-disk set.
Danielson and Nigel's go-away best of DVDs are definitely going to sell by the bucketload, so why not make them double or triple sets and make more money?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I agree with Platt.

How much are you selling it for and are you going to GBH8 so I can buy it in person?

Edit: Why are there only 6 matches? And why is Bryan not capitalized in one of them? Jesus what a rush job.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm not selling it yet because I want to include his last match but it will be around $25 for a ten disc set.

How will you be selling it? Because that, I would buy. Not download for free, buy.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

How ironic would it be to upload platt's best of to the media section?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

WTF at that Danielson cover...cannot be real...but it's got the ROH site in the url.


ROH - Contention


Jimmy Rave, Claudio Castagnoli & Ernie Osiris vs Colt Cabana, Necro Butcher & Grizzly Redwood - ***

Kenny King vs Bryan Danielson - ***1/4



The Young Bucks vs Kevin Steen & El Generico

Really good match, which I enjoyed quite a bit. First, I must say about the Bucks, I've only seen their most popular matches, but I don't think they'd be getting as much hype and praise if it weren't for their opponents. The Bucks are way too flashy and spotty for my liking and I think they lack personality and are bad at selling. Look at their opponents in their most-praised matches: Dragon, Roderick, CIMA, MCMGs, Davey and now Steenerico. In all those matches, I firmly believe they were built on good performances from those guys and not the Bucks. Matt Jackson's selling in this wasn't good, I felt. He had his back and his ribs worked on, only for a minute after the hot tag, he makes a return and is pretty much acting like that hadn't happened. Soon, he takes a Powerbomb, which should be a reminder of that work done to him, but he just sells the Powerbomb as normal, gets back up a little later and carries on. I can see why people like the Bucks, with their flashiness and spots obviously able to get great crowd reactions, but I just can't watch a match of theirs with a sense of believability. I'm definitely not saying this is a bad match, and it wasn't the Bucks worst performance (which I can say easily because of their match with the Dolphins), but I felt like ranting on the Bucks now that I have a chance to do it in detail. I enjoyed this match a lot and I'm glad it ended when it did, because it was far from going into overkill and leaves room for a rematch, which since the Bucks seem to be sticking around, is likely.

***3/4


Four Corner Survival
Austin Aries vs D-Lo Brown vs Eddie Edwards vs Roderick Strong - ***


Jimmy Jacobs vs Sonjay Dutt - **1/2



Davey Richards vs Jay Briscoe


I was pleasantly surprised by how good this turned out to be. I thought it would be solid, but this is tying for MOTN so far. It just had the basics going well for them: crowd firmly behind Jay, firmly against Davey; good armwork that wasn't forgotten by the end of the match; decent performances from both guys. I just enjoyed this from beginning to end, mostly because of the brawling and intensity these two brought into it. It never dragged and I didn't find it dull at any part. Definitely one of Jay's best singles matches since he fought Nigel earlier in the year. It's exactly what I said it is - a very good match, I can't really find anything else to say.

***3/4


Jerry Lynn vs Tyler Black

Not great, but a good match. It didn't really stand out much from their previous matches, as it had similarities like them going through pretty much their whole movesets in the finishing stretch and there was some basic mat wrestling. One advantage this did have was that the crowd was more into it than their other matches. It was an obvious B show main event, to be honest. Two faces who don't display much personality in the ring, going out and wrestling with basically zero heat between them in a match I probably couldn't differentiate from the last two times they fought. It was also only to continue the pretty lame angle of Tyler getting big wins but failing in big match situations. This was a good match, but it was clearly hurt by being predictable and just nothing special or unique. I wouldn't be ticked off if these two didn't have another match anytime soon.

***1/2
