I assume you were attracted by the main event to buy #24. I just got done watching it and it was a pretty average volume compared to the usual SHIMMER standards.

SHIMMER: Vol. 24:

1. Jessie McKay vs. Kellie Skater - *3/4
2. Lexie Fyfe & Malia Hosaka vs. Tenille & Rayna Von Tosh - *1/2
3. Amber O'Neal vs. Jennifer Blake - *3/4
4. Mercedes Martinez vs. Madison Eagles - ***
5. Rain & Jetta with Lacey vs. Nikki Roxx & Portuguese Princess Ariel - DUD
6. Serena Deeb vs. Cat Power - **
7. No Time Limit: Nicole Matthews vs. Daizee Haze - **1/4
8. No Disqualification Street Fight: Allison Danger vs. Portia Perez - DUD
9. Wesna Busic vs. LuFisto - ***1/4
10. MelisSchif vs. Sara Del Rey & Amazing Kong - ***1/4

If you can find the last two matches online somewhere then by all means grab those and skip the DVD since you're missing very little with no title matches on the volume and an extremely disappointing Matthews/Haze rematch. Thumbs slightly down.

I wish you had put out that review a few hours earlier.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Pretty much my thoughts. Show as a whole was average, couldn't get into Nerco/Stevens (meh brawl) or Black/Ryan.

All of your arguments apply to most other indy companies, especially PWG and ROH. You do not have a single unique argument.

Hmmm, most DG matches are not even 10 minutes...

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

Same here i thought Aries/Liger would have been much better than what it was tbh.

Dont worry man, I bought Shimmer 24 and went gaga over it. I ADORE Martinez/Eagles, probably the best womans match I've ever seen.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread


Chikara Pro ~ A Touch of Class
January 31, 2010 ~ Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

1. Grudge Match: Pinkie Sanchez vs. Green Ant - ***1/4
2. The UnStable vs. The Throwbacks & Player Uno - **1/2
3. Daizee Haze & Sara Del Rey vs. The Osirian Portal - ***
4. Brodie Lee vs. Hallowicked - ***1/4
5. The Neo-Solar Temple vs. Redwood, Primeau & Ridge - **1/4
6. Young Lions Cup: Player Dos© vs. Tim Donst - ***1/2
7. The War Begins: Mike Quackenbush & The Future is Now vs. The Bruderschaft - ****
8. Campeonatos de Parejas: The Colony© vs. F.I.S.T. - ***

Overall: 8 / 10

This was the perfect way to open the season. It got everybody from BDK over without the Chikara guys losing a ton of face, with only one truly purposeless match. People will love the opener and Brodie/Wicked more than I did too, I'm sure. The main event was a letdown (with one absolutely horrific botch that killed the match dead), but I’m still gonna not only recommend this for Chikara fans, but indy fans as well. The crowd was incredible the entire show, making the experience even more enjoyable. If the eight-man tag is any indication, the Chikara vs. BDK feud's going to be epic.

Full Review of the Show Here!

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Express Written Consent
El Generico vs. Kenny Omega **** (Quite possibly the greatest ending to a PWG match.)

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

KaijuFan’s Stoned Reviews:
ISW – Hot Summer Rub-Down

Smoked some legal bud called k2 blueberry, stoned out of my mind.

Beef Wellington vs Bear
Special Guest Ref: Giant Tiger:
****

Bear got decapitated like three times throughout the match, what a champ. Giant Tiger is fucking amazing, I want him to be a General Manager. His ability to be such a living pile of shit never ceases to amaze me.

ISW Title Match:
Player Uno (c) vs Kevin Steen:
***

Can’t believe they actually had a good match. But fuck, like, wow.

MVP vs Stinky The Homeless Guy vs El Hijo Del Bamboo:
**

Blah. Ending was botched but the guy whos El Hijo actually made me believe a panda was wrestling. Sexxxy Eddy on commentary takes a piss.

The Badd Gauntlet:
Vs Bruiser and Fuck Face
VS The Priests
Vs Black Larry and Dollar Bill of T-Unit:
*


I feel raped. Like. I really like The Badd Boys, I think Dad Badd is one of the most genius creations to ever grace the industry of professional wrestling. And it’s good that you shouldn’t be looking for good wrestling because god dammit you’re not going to get it. But fuck, as far as fun factor goes….ISW is it.

Winner Eats Loser:
Moohammad vs Flip D. Burger:
***

Moohammad mocking Cena with the You Can’t Milk Me is a thing of beauty. This was a legit fun match to watch. Moohammad is actually a decent wrestler and it helped to make the match more enjoyable than just a joke.

Twiggy and El Generico vs Izzie Deadyet and Zombified:
***

I don't remember much of this because I was rolling a joint, but I remember seeing lots of lulzy things and smiling. So I figure that's what earns a 3.

Obviously you wouldn't be looking for great inring wrestling with this company, however this is wrestling entertainment at its finest. While I still prefer PWG over any other company, I think ISW being Chikara's drunk, mentally handicapped brother is a close second place.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

You can never go wrong with ISW. If I was anywhere near Connecticut I'd go check out the show they're having I think around the first of April. Giant Tiger as the champ is best thing ever and his first time in the US should be great.
