Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I just finished watching Final Battle 2008 and I have to say that the Danielson/Morishima Fight Without Honor was one of the best matches I've seen in a while. It's not necessarily what they were going in the ring but I found myself caring about the outcome of the match much more than I usually do. It managed to suspend my disbelief for the match, yeah I know the outcome was predetermined but I wanted Danielson to get the win so fucking badly.

I don't know how high I would go with a star rating on it but will say that it is now one of my favorite ROH matches that I've ever seen. What it lacks in actual technical wrestling and big spots it more than makes up for in sheer emotion. Morishima played the monster role amazingly well and I can't think of a time I was more behind and underdog than Danielson.

The start of the match was also insanely awesome.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

So with Wrestlemania just around the corner I was wondering what hotels the people that are going are staying in, I'm gonna book my room in the next couple of days and i am looking for some ideas

Proud supporter of PWG, probably the best wrestling company in the universe. Probably.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I just booked my room today. Staying at the Fiesta Resort Conference Center (http://www.fiestainnresort.com/) Got a pretty good deal through Priceline with my flight. About $500 per person. About 5 miles from the airport, Hotel is about 8 miles from ROH and DGUSA and about 25 miles from Mania. Definitly renting a car for the weekend. Should be a hell of a time, just bought mania tickets Section 120 Row 8 directly across from the entrance. Now just waiting to decide if I should go to DG USA or ROH on friday night and waiting for some sales to buy tickets.

Yeah it was one of my favorite ROH matches of 2008. **** 1/2 for me.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I would go a little higher on Hero/Butcher but overall Night One of BOLA can't compare to Night 2. I can't remember too much about the other Night One matches though but I thought they were all good to great.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Glory By Honor VIII - The Final Countdown


Rhett Titus vs. Colt Cabana - **

Dark City Fight Club vs. Cheech & Cloudy - ** 1/2

Kenny Omega vs. Claudio Castagnoli - ***

FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL

Delirious vs. Roderick Strong vs. Sonjay Dutt vs. Grizzly Redwood - *** 1/4
Really got suprised by this one. Going in I thought it was going to be a train wreck but it was pretty damn solid.


ROH WORLD TAG TITLE/LADDER WAR II

The American Wolves vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico - ****
Good but could have been better. Some parts seemed to be forced. Couple nice spots but didn't live up to what I was hoping for.

Chris Hero vs. Eddie Kingston - ** 3/4
Don't understand how anyone has this match ***+. Complete snoozefest for me and it killed all the good momentum that was going. I didn't feel it was placed right in the card.

ROH WORLD TITLE MATCH
Austin Aries vs. Petey Williams - *** 1/2

Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. The Young Bucks - *** 1/2

Bryan Danielson vs. Nigel McGuinness - *** 3/4

Some suprises, and some relative disappointments. But overall it is one damn good and consistent show. Haven't seen all the other FCD shows, but it'll be hard for any of those to top the consistency of this one.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Attention fellow Indy nerds: for those not watching, they just announced Daniel Bryan vs. Chris Jericho for NXT later tonight.
