Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Well i'm pretty fed up with Wrestling in general right now, only thing I watched from last year (this is barring some of the excellent shit i've found from 80's Mid-South, Memphis etc) I felt any real interest in was PWG. But the whole indy way of working matches just seems really poor to me now, with the overly long matches, every match goes for the epic finishing sequences and the general "Can you top this shit" mentality that is prevailent in independant wrestling in the first place. Maybe its the fact i've been watching a lot of 80's stuff with DQ finishes, squashes and 5 minutes matches but i'll take that way of building up angles over attempting to put on an epic after epic.
Plus, most of the really good indy workers (Punk, Samoa Joe of old, Danielson, Nigel McWolfeness) who actually made you care have all moved on anyways, the big stars of the indy scene right now are Tyler Black, Aries and Davey Richards and frankly the only one of those three I find interesting is Aries because he offers more than your standard moves guy (especially as a heel). Davey is getting there though last I watched him.
