Nice find with Highspots on Demand. Don't know if it's such a great idea that they have full matches there. With some of the PWG matches they put up there are some shows that I don't think I will end up getting now.

KaijuFan's Stoned Reviews:
PWG - DDT4 (2009)

As I continue to work my way through PWG 2K9, we're getting into the meat of the year with their annual tag team tournament. This year the Young Bucks were entered and also forced to defend the tag titles in addition to each tournament match they're in. Pack a bowl and let's dive in!

Joey Ryan and Scott Lost vs Bryan Danielson and Roderick Strong:
*** 8/7

Holy shit has Roderick Strong evolved(all puns will be pardoned from this point onward)! The man is just a perfect looking wrestler. Crazy finish capped off a wonderfully woven match. If that makes any sense.

Men of Low Moral Fiber vs Dark & Lovely:
*** + 1

Everything about this was amazing, the Street Fighter spot, the double grenade, and the finishing sequence were just perfect. Kenny Omega continues to enhance my high.

PWG Tag Team Titles:
The Young Bucks (c) vs The Cutler Bros.
2(2/2) + 1(1/2) + (-4) + 5 = My rating.

There's a really hot chick with black hair in the 3rd row of hardcam. The match featured some brain numbing spots, but I couldn't help but feel that I'd already seen this match. The Cutlers are really starting to make a name for themselves, I've been impressed from every outing they've had.

I really don't know what my rating is because I didn't even do the formula given, so if you really want to know, do the math.

Malachi Jackson vs Phoenix Star:
** 5/10

Meh, Malachi is noticeably new and seems his boots don't fit. Spots all over, and his boots are just too big.

PWG Tag Team Titles:
The Young Bucks (c) vs Men of Low Moral Fiber:
***** Star Frog Splash

Yeah, someone stop the internets, someone gave out a 5 star rating for a match no one else ever thought to give. Whatever. There were three pinfalls were I thought the match was over and it just intensified. I've never seen a crowd more outrageous than the one in Reseda for this match. While I hated what finished the match, the overall performance was mind melting.

Like, when Mat got that huge combo done to him, he should not have run around the ring before planting Omega with the Finlay roll. He should have been aching and in pain the entire time. But honestly, I don't give a shit. The match blew me away regardless. Afterall, isn't what this really is all about? Watching a performance of athletes entertain us to the point of excitement. I think it is, and fuck, when you're blasted it's all the more believable.

Bryan Danielson and Roderick Strong vs Motor City Machine Guns:
registered 5 on the rector scale.

Alright, now I know I'm starting to lose the faith of fellow raters, two five star matches in a row? My reputation is in jeopardy now. Well I was just thinking to myself how far Roderick and Shelley come. I remember them wrestling each other in 2005 and to see them only four years later, they're 200% better than before.

The same goes for when Danielson and Sabin were in the ring together. They both evolved quite a lot in the past four years. Watching this was like watching wrestling for the first time again. I was horrified and amazed. By far the greatest pure wrestling tag match I've ever seen. And this is the difference between this 5 star and the previous, the last one was solely because the entertainment was so astronomically high. This was because it was a beautiful display of the sport of professional wrestling.

PWG Championship:
Chris Hero (c) vs Joey Ryan:
***


The reason Hero isn't in the WWE is because the WWE is hiring actors now. There was some botching, not going to lie, but the overall effect was there. In fact, one of the botches actually added to the match. Joey Ryan continues to be awesome and Hero continues to win me over with his title reign.

PWG Tag Titles:
Young Bucks (c) vs Bryan Danielson and Roderick Strong:
*** 1/2

Alright, the ending pissed me off. I know I argued with someone before about giving it a bad rating and I now take it back. The match itself was stunning and I legit thought the Bucks were going to die, they were mauled. However the ending is just so upsetting I just can't really be too positive on it.

You gave Young Bucks vs. Cutlers ***1/2 btw.

And while I wouldn't give either of the two matches you gave ***** that high of a rating, I won't argue with either, because both were fantastically fun matches.

Nice take on DDT4. Still my favorite PWG show of 2009, although I haven't seen BOLA yet. I must say, PWG and weed (and a good beer or two, or twelve) go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Which you might need on hand if you mix the two together.

And I wouldn't call MOLMF vs. Bucks a five star match or anything, but it was definitely one of my favorites of the year and I'm glad to see you liked it. The rematch could have been better, but there are a couple booking and Omega goofs that keep it from reaching that level. I don't know if you've made it to that show or not (Against the Grain) but you'll see what I mean.

I totally agree about some botches on Omega's part effecting the overall experience, but the fun was just to overwhelming for it to bother me. I haven't seen Against The Grain yet as I'm trying to watch all of PWG 2009 in order (minus The Gentle Art of Making Enemies), but I'll get to it soon enough.

I'm not much of a drinker, MP, but I may just have to drink a 4loco or something before the next show.

jawbreaker, actually, I believe Mr. Kaiju gave Bucks/Cutlers a *****1/2.

2(2/2) is 3
1(1/2) is 1.5
so there's 4.5
minus 4 is .5
plus 5 is 5.5

lol. anyway, stoned reviews keep getting better.

The stoned reviews make me want to start smoking again, because whenever i write my blackout reviews they are so incoherent I never post them.

Just watched Danielson/Omega from PWG 100 and I loved the match. I was laughing my ass off during the entire match. The "never under spot" followed by an enzuigiri was one of the funniest things I've ever seen in a wrestling ring. This was also one of the few times that the PWG fans made the match better instead of just annoying me like they do more times than they should.

I take back my former comment about Highspots free on demand making me less likely to buy DVDs as I now really want to see this match with Excalibur's commentary.
