Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
I have 2 big DVD racks, and 3 smaller towers that hold just about everything I have. This new order is giving me some problems. I just counted an I have 378 commercial DVDs/VHS. Throw in everything WCW did from 2000 and 2001, a bunch of PPVs that I ordered and recorded myself, some random tapes that I got as bonuses from various ebay orders, and a few orders worth of IVP discs and I have a lot of wrestling. I actually think it's a pretty impressive wrestling library just because I have so much different stuff. Storage is a bitch though.
The Era of Honor Begins
Christopher Street Connection vs. The Hit Squad DUD
I was going with a ¼* for this because it was kind of funny to watch this but than The Hit Squad went and did the Burning Hammer to end the match. Hey, you’re not supposed to end a match a squash match like that!
The Amazing Red vs. Jay Briscoe **1/4
This is how they should have opened the show. Nothing all that special but a fun fast paced match that had a bunch of big spots and got the crowd going
Scoot Andrews vs. Xavier **1/2
Another fun match with good back and forth action. They did a lot of really impressive stuff in the ring and with the exception Andrew botching and nearly landing on his head (which actually look pretty awesome) .
Quiet Storm vs. Chris Devine vs. Red vs. Brian XL vs. Joel Maximo vs. Jose Maximo **
Spotfest alert. Again another fun and fast paced match. Kind of sloppy and virtually no structure prevented me from giving this a better rating.
Spanky and Ikaika Loa vs. Michael Shane and Oz **¾
Another solid match. Much less of a spotfest than most of the other matches which was a good change. The fact that only the winner got a contract also made this a little more interesting.
Eddie Guerrero vs. Super Crazy ***
Very good match. More back and forth fast paced stuff and a quick match. It had the same feel as the other matches on the card but it was done better than everything else so far.
Bryan Danielson vs. Low-Ki vs. Christopher Daniels ****
Pretty crazy stuff here. Just another fast paced stiff match that was easy to watch. Couldn’t ask for more with a main event.
Overall it was a relatively enjoyable show that didn’t take me too long to get through (around 2 hours I think). I’m aware that the newer version of the DVD has some more matches on it but since they weren’t on my DVD I can’t really review them. I highly doubt I missed much anyway. The show had a bunch of fun quick matches and than it delivered a great main event. A solid undercard and at least one great match is all I can really ask for from a show, especially an indy one.
