How does a story in a match even matter when there isn't anyone to tell it to? With their sing-alongs, do they really give the impression that they give a fuck whether it's a bland indy guy noselling brainbusters or a 20-year veteran telling a story about how he's a goddamn legend?

But this only goes for the Oberhausen crowd, because I could actually watch last year's Gorefest without losing my temper. It was just the awful wrestling (even for death match wrestling) that turned me off half way through.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The wXw crowd can go completely overboard with the stupid chants (and you can't really understand half of the because they're drunk as hell) but for me at least most of the time it doesn't take me out of the matches. Rather have them then a crowd that just sits on their hands for the entire show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I like wXw but yeah there crowds are the worst of the worst. Don't mind the redneck FIP crowds though except when kids are randomly running around.

Chikara Pro ~ A World of Comforting Illusions
February 28, 2010 ~ Pottsville, Pennsylvania

1. The Throwbacks vs. Vin Gerard & STIGMA - *3/4
2. Brodie Lee vs. Green Ant - *1/2
3. Daizee Haze & Sara Del Ray vs. Incoherence - **1/2
4. Elimination Tag: Claudio & Ares vs. Badd Boyz vs. Osirian Portal vs. SSB - ***
5. Strong-Style Slugfest: Gran Akuma vs. Eddie Kingston - ***1/4
6. Mike Quackenbush & The Future is Now vs. Tursas, Donst, Dorado & Sanchez - ***1/2
7. Campeonatos de Parejas: The Colony© vs. The Neo Solar Temple - ***1/4

Overall: 5.5 / 10

Man I hate giving Chikara bad reviews. You see the rating, so you don't need to be told that it wasn't great. The crowd was pretty quiet and the commentary, usually a HUGE plus for Chikara, really brought everything down for me. However, this show had three very watchable matches and one that was very good. It furthered several storylines, including Mantis/Ares, Claudio/Kingston, and BDK/Technicos. I can't recommend this for anyone other than Chikara completists and die-hards, but if you're like me, even the worst Chikara show is better than an episode of Impact. You know what you're getting if you buy this: fun, fast-paced action, and characters you won't find anywhere else.

Full Review of the Show Here!

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That is discomforting, WillTheBloody. I have that DVD in a stack of 2010 stuff I haven't started yet. I heard there's no Mantis on commentary, which automatically devalues the DVD by about half.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

This thread really should be renamed to "Official Indy DVD/Merch/Discussion Thread", because I always find things that I want to address with other wrestling fans (and other than you guys, I don't really have friends that like wrestling), but I don't like starting threads for things that don't need a thread.

Anyway, I say that because I saw on Claudio's twitter, a t-shirt that's pretty awesome. It's on his website. I just ordered one myself. Here it is:



and here's the man himself wearing it:

Also, I just paid for Chikara's "Dead Men Don't Laugh", "HEY! The Claudio Castagnoli Story" and the Highspots London & Kendrick shoot. Super stoked!

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That is an awesome shirt.

And didn't Smart Mark just have a sale a few weeks or so ago? I thought they running something really good at the same time ROH had a 40% sale.

Colin Fucking Delaney is on commentary the entire night. Did he play heel, offer insight or otherwise entertain? If you said D) None of the above, you nailed it.

The good news is I just watched "Wit, Verve and a Bit o' Nerve", and it's outstanding! The Loser Leaves Town match between 2.0 vs. Badd Boyz and it's immediate fall-out was one of the funniest in-ring segments I've seen on the indys.
