For Untouchable I'd say:

Masato Yoshino vs. Dragon Kid--***1/2 (perfect opener)
YAMATO & Gran Akuma vs. Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw--*** (Jig's injury sours it)
Bryan Danieslon vs. Naruki Doi--****3/4 (as smooth as butter crossed with velvet mixed with Frank Sinatra's voice)
Brian Kendrick vs. CIMA--**1/2 (cut from PPV for a reason)
Davey Richards vs. Shingo--****3/4 (your balls will grow twice the size and your chest hair will become a manly thatch after watching this)
Nick & Matt Jackson vs. Ryo Saito & Genki Horiguchi--*** (I always burn out by this point and can barely remember anything about this match)

Historic and Freedom Gate have much better "flow," but this has two matches that smoke anything on those two shows. So it's really hard to rate the show overall, but it's absolutely worth picking up. FRAY is much better on this show too, although I like the two prelim match approach from Freedom Gate better than either FRAY.

I'm just a little confused about how you didn't like the first match because the guys had no personality or gimmicks but hated the Chikara match which had guys with some pretty over the top gimmicks.

And you didn't miss much with the Doanne/Jacobs match or the woman's match, more so with the woman's match.
Thanks for reading it I thought it might be too long for everyone. But I dunno, they need to find a balance when it comes to gimmicks/personality. Like it shouldn't just be two random Joe Nobodies but it shouldn't be a bunch of people pretending to be ghosts and truck drivers either. CHIKARA just seemed especially out of place on a show where everything was supposed to be so realistic, not even just their costumes and gimmicks but their lucha libre style just looked so choreographed and fake compared to the realistic MMA-influenced style everyone else was doing. I think Chris Hero would be a good example of being realistic but still having a personality

Wow, I can't believe I forgot about Dragon/Doi; looks like I'll be picking Open the Untouchable Gate up as well, then.

Wasn't too long and the reviews of yours that I've read (maybe like 2 others) are pretty entertaining even if I don't agree with them.

The Chikara guys really don't fit in with the rest of the roster. It's almost like they took the extremes with guys like Bobby Fish, Brad Allen, and Silas Young on one side and the Chikara guys on the other.

It's going to be a while before I pick up any DVDs now. I just put in my 2 weeks notice at work and I don't have anything lined up. Shouldn't be too hard to find another job but I plan on taking a few weeks off. I have plenty of savings but it just doesn't seem like a good idea to invest that money into DVDs. In fact I may end up selling some stuff on ebay.

KaijuFanís Stoned Reviews:
PWG Ė Speed of Sound

Alright guys, tonightís a good night. I just got laid for two hours and I smoked me a full bowl. Itís time to watch some PW G.

The Cutler Bros vs Johnny Goodtime and Brandon Gatson (Wolf Blitzer):
*** 1/2

YES! GOODTIME WITH THE POWER PAD! Gatson looks like the American Gladiator Wolf Blitzer, so I hearby dub him Wolf Blitzer throughout this review. Wolfie fucks up a bit but recovers points with amazing spots that made my pants tight. The Cutlers are the new Briscoes, you heard It here first.

Shane Haste vs Gary Fuckiní Coleman vs Charles Mercury vs Human Tornado:
*** 5/9

HOLY MOTHER OF SPOTS. I marked like a bitch. The ending was a great showcase of cool looking moves with no reason behind it other to win a match.

Kike Cabana vs Scott Lost:
*** 2/4

Losta good chain wrestling. While I prefer when Lost is in kill mode, itís quite refreshing to see him be somewhat lighthearted in this, and heís fighting Colt, how serious can he honestly be?

PWG Tag Titles:
Young Bucks © vs Joey ďI forgot what I was originally going to putĒ Ryan and his BFF, Karl Anderson
*** 4/9

Joey Ryan using the psychological warfare, calling the bucks "chickens" and mimicking a chicken, this is amazing. I always pictured Joey Ryan as a failed MLB player, who woulda thought I was right? Anderson is quickly becoming my favorite wrestler over the course of just one prematch introduction.
Good wrestling, Ryan and Anderson were the stars though, the bucks just hit their spots in the right time. The Bucks going really heelish just works perfectly.

Reseda Street Fight:
El Generico vs Sexy Chucky T
*****

There comes a time in every reviewers life where he comes across a match he deems worth of the ever esteemed, five stars. However this reviewer has come across a match that no other reviewer would give it to. Does one risk losing credibility over the confession of a love for an overlooked match? Well, today is that day. To give a match five stars is to expose your view of what wrestling really is.

It should be funny, it should be serious, it should be a spotfest, it should tell me a story, it should be everything. And this match delivered in every way possible. The spots were intense, the comedy was hysterical and the story was beautifully written. What was the story? Two men fighting for the right for their tag team to get a title shot at the Bucks. Thatís simple, everyone understands it, and itís just logical. Why isnít there more of this?

Daniel Bryan vs THE Brian Kendrick:
***

Solid but any match would be hard to impress following the street fight.

PWG Title:
Chris Hero © vs Roderick Swarm:
****

Tipsy McDrinkLots. Thatís all I have to fucking say.

KaijuFan's Stoned Reviews:
ROH - Bound By Hate

Jerry Lynn vs Ol' DR:
** + *

Nothing offensive, short and fast. Wasn't anything other than acceptable if not, generic wrestling.

Delirious and Brodie Lee vs Kenny King and Rhett Titus:
UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH

Delirious got worked over forever, and when Brodie finally got the tag in they went to the count out sequence.

Roderick Swarm and Erick Stevens vs Go Shiozaki and Eddie Edwards:
** 1/2

Nothing much to say about this either other than Roderick and Stevens should have tagged much more often.

Dog Collar:
Jimmy Jacobs vs Austin Aries:
****

This had more blood than perhaps Slither. Amazing use of the chain, I thought Jimmy Jacobs turned into Red Skull from Captain America.

Grizzley Redwood vs Alex Payne:
*

This is the "Hurry the fuck up, intermission is over and the show is back on" match.

Daniel Bryan vs Tyler Black vs Kenny "My Favorite Stoned Wrestler" Omega:
*** 3/4


Innovative shit, and the ending just looked disgusssssting.

ROH World Title:
Nigel McGuinness (c) vs Necro Butcher:
**

Blah.

ROH World Tag Titles:
Steenerico (c) vs The Briscoe Bros

****
A great match, I love how much these teams fueled their rivalry throughout their matches and not through just promos. Just little things like spitting in the face out of the blue adds a sense of realism and further suspends my belief.

Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe that Davey/SHINGO is that good? Probably because I've been insanely bored w/Davey for quite a while now, but I mean really? THAT excellent?
