I think I gave that Shelley tag match ****. Surprised the you know what out of me. Shelley looking for partners all night is just a constant win.
It's their best show from 2005, which says a lot since people still swear by Manhattan Mayhem. My top 3.

ROH Better Than Our Best (4/1/06)

Jack Evans vs. Matt Sydal vs. Jake Crist vs. Dave Crist vs. Ace Steel vs. Jimmy Jacobs ***

Delirious vs. Ricky Reyes **

Jimmy Rave, Alex Shelley & Masato Yoshino vs. Ryo Saito, Genki Horiguchi & Dragon Kid ****1/4
Funniest moment of the night (and most random) is in The Embassy's interview later in the show when Shelley said "we're gonna get laid by hookers!"

Samoa Joe vs. AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Jimmy Yang ****

ROH World Tag Team Championship
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong (c) vs. Naruki Doi & CIMA ****1/2

ROH World Championship
Bryan Danielson (c) vs. Lance Storm ****

Chicago Street Fight
Homicide vs. Colt Cabana ****3/4
Awesome, awesome feud ender. Cabana and Homicide burying the hatchet afterward was a great moment.

One of the best professional wrestling shows I've ever seen, to be completely honest. I would recommend it to anyone.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Being live for both the WM shows that weekend was the best time in my life as a wrestling fan. Just off the chart awesome. Add in the fact that I bought a puppy there, found the best sandwich shop ever (Chicago Cheesy Chicken ftw), and I got to meet Danielson, the DG guys, Joe, Daniels, Shelley (hanging out in the parking lot), Cabana, Aries, Strong, Sydal, Styles, and Storm, it was an amazing weekend.

I actually didn't care that I was there for WM weekend without even going to WM.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Generation Next - 2004

Shelley, Aries, Evans & Strong vs Briscoes, Walters & Rave

Nice chain mat wrestling at the begininning of this followed up by an extremely explosive (awesome) exchange between Jay & Roderick Strong really set's this match on fire in the early goings. Jack Evans beatdown is hilarious and brutal. The rest of the match is just a flat out fucking war. This is seriously up there with some of the best matches of all time. All 8 men threw their bodies on the line to create a spectacular match will be remembered for eternity. Crowd chants "match of the year" and "thank you" afterwards, it really sets a nice feel to the match. This is Wrestling!

*****
MVP - Ugh this was so tough.. Aries and Strong were the real standouts. I'd have to give it to Aries though..

The same goes for the banner ontop of their home page, with the same renders on opposite sides and a tiny unreadable text inbetween them. Just bad advertising.

And Crash, please stop punishing yourself.

ROH At Our Best
3/13/04


Teddy Hart vs. Amazing Red vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Jack Evans vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Mark Briscoe: ***1/4

Xavier vs. Slyk Wagner Brown: **1/2

Jerry Lynn vs. Nigel McGuinness: ***

Matt Stryker vs. John Walters: ***3/4

Dan Maff and B.J. Whitmer vs. Colt Cabana and Ace Steel: **

A.J. Styles vs. CM Punk: ****1/2

Samoa Joe vs. Jay Briscoe: ****1/2

Carnage Crew vs. Special K: **3/4

I have no idea why the main event went on last. Just a giant clusterfuck that had way too many people in it. Joe vs. Jay got at least an extra half star just for what the blood added to the match. Punk vs. AJ was incredible. Everything else was fairly solid, if unremarkable.

PWG Ninety-Nine:

Scorpio Sky, Phoenix Star, and Zokre vs. Brandon Cutler, Dustin Cutler, and Scott Lost: ***1/2

Bryan Danielson vs. Chuck Taylor: ***1/4

B-Boy vs. Joey Ryan: ***

Kenny Omega vs. Davey Richards: ***3/4

Sonjay Dutt vs. Roderick Strong: ***1/4

Tyler Black vs. El Generico: ***3/4

Chris Hero vs. Austin Aries: ***1/2

Young Bucks vs. Motor City Machine Guns: ****1/4 (#7 MOTYTD)

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

June 16th: The next DVD release from Ring of Honor will be called "Double Feature II" and feature the top matches from Montreal, Quebec (The Hunt Begins) and Markham, Ontario (Tag Title Classic) from the month of April on one disc. This release will include the historic World Tag Team Title defense from Markham with The American Wolves defending against Tyler Black & Bryan Danielson. We'll have more on this release shortly.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well this is a good way to get people to buy that Montreal show that nobody cares about, by packaging it with the Markham show that people actually want to watch.

I reckon it will be something along the lines of:

Black/Jacobs
Aries/Omega/Strong/Briscoe
Claudio & Rave/Cabana & Albright
Steen, Generico & Danielson/Wolves & Grenier

from The Hunt Begins

Aries, Titus, King/Steen, Do & Omega
Jacobs/Delirious
Jay/Strong
Wolves/Black & Danielson

from Tag Title Classic

If 7 matches then take off the Embassy tag from THB.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Steel City Clash

Mike Quackenbush vs Bryan Danielson
FINALLY! Quack back in an ROH ring. This was a very good match, especially if you're into this style. Loads of chain-wrestling, fancy counters, submissions and all that fun stuff. It obviously wasn't going to turn into brutal stuff, but it really reminds you how great Quack and Dragon are when they can put on a match this good with just pure wrestling. I already knew the result, but one or two times, I know would've had me thinking he could take it. Very good, enjoyable match.
***3/4

El Generico & KENTA vs Davey Richards & Nigel McGuinness
A **** match with a bad crowd. Seriously, things started off great when there was crowd heat and Davey was the most over guy in the match, but then something changed and I can't figure out what. When it got to the finishing stretch, they just stopped reacting. The fucking Tower of London got almost zero reaction. What was going on in the ring was great stuff, if you ask me, and I would've given it the full **** had the crowd been more lively. The intensity in this match was really good at times, particularly when Davey was involved. Just Davey trying his best to beat the hell out of his former mentor as a way of showing how much he's improved without him. The exchanges these two had were a great way of giving a small taste of what to expect from their SOH4 match. This is simply a case of a great match being taken down a peg by one major fault.
***3/4
