For some reason the ASW6 matches aren't presented in true widescreen format (as in filling out my entire widescreen monitor). I'm just happy though that at least the BOLA 08 matches are.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Very surprised that my ROH PWG order has come before my Highspots PWG order. Especially considering I did my ROH order a week after my Highspots order.

Anyway, i'm off to watch The Gentle Art of Making Enemies.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Haven't seen Gentle Art of Making Enemies yet but the card looks very good. It might only have 6 matches but most of them look like they could be really good.

My order of 38 ROH tapes came in and I'm pretty excited to start watching. Probably going to just start right off with The Era of Honor Begins and work my through all the shows that I got (which is going to take a long ass time for me to get through).

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I enjoyed the show for someone new to PWG and there wasn't a match that I didn't like. Hard to believe too that the show is about 1 + 3/4 hours.

Highspots also has the first 2 Dragon Gate USA shows for sale now, which is good news as it'll save me from eventually ordering it from DGUSA. And as much as I need a new DVD Storage Tower, i'm tempted to put that back a little bit. So I can get the DGUSA shows, BOLA '09 and the Jeff Peterson Memorial Cup in a few weeks.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

DVD Storage can get expensive. I have so many tapes and DVDs and it's not cheap to buy that stuff. I don't know where the hell I'm going to put all the ROH tapes I just got. They are currently just sprawled out on my bed and the only place I have room for them is on the floor of my closet...

And only 1 hour and 45 minutes for Gentle Art of Making Enemies. I don't mind short shows but I would have been pissed if I was there live.

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 * 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 **
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.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I know that Eddie came pretty damn close to just walking out as he was disgusted with all the sloppy spot monkeys on the show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I can see where he was coming from. A lot of the guys were sloppy but I still enjoyed most of the spotfests. I didn't give them all great ratings. Sometimes it's nice just to sit back and watch guys go crazy for 7 minutes. Hopefully things get better as I go on with my ROH shows as I can easily see myself getting tired of the style that the undercard works. But as long as they keep up the great main events I'll be happy.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wrestling Forum newbie here, although not an IWC newbie at all.

Question: has anyone seen the Evolve DVD yet? Thinking about picking it up and was just curious about video and/or match quality.

Thanks guys, I read this thread daily for second opinions on what to buy, and all your help is much appreciated.
