Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Not sure why, but this Edwards situation doesn't bother me. At all. I think I'll have a definite opinion once I actually see the match and see what he put his arm through. I'd have a much bigger problem if this was a concusion or something similar he was working with, but I could see them working around an arm injury.
One of the biggest reasons I don't have a problem with this is because it's Eddie Edwards. Don't mean that in a derogatory way against him, but he's not a marquee guy. Odds are this match was going to be his biggest payday of his indy career (keep in mind I know absolutely nothing about this stuff. For all I know I'm way off in my assumptions). And with a hiatus on the horizon as well as surgery, I can see why he'd go through this if he felt he was in good hands. Plus, if you look longterm, he and Davey might not be a tag team forever, considering the love Richards has been getting as of late. Who knows where Davey will be in a year? Who knows where ROH will be? If times get tough(er) for the company and they have to make decisions on guys who work under their umbrella, showing whatever dedication you find in this can only help his cause. Might end up being for nothing at the end of day for all I know.
It's against the majority of people here, but I'll be one of the few to give Eddie some respect. Not for wrestling like a tough SOB, but for being man enough to go through with a tough decision that you knew was going to be criticized.
