Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I wouldn't call Black's rendition of cattle mutilation a botch per say. In context, you could chalk it up to him attempting to lock in a move he's never used before so for him being unable to perfect it makes sense in that regard because it's not a regular move of his.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

yeah, the finish came out perfectly with Tyler not being able to fully lock Cattle Mutilation and realizing too late that the Small Package Driver was the best solution

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Yeah Tyler not locking it in perfectly was intentianal imo. The fact that he's never used the move before so didn't execute it to perfection.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

They are a bit more alive during the main event but not that much.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

"New Horizons, Black vs. Dragon and Claudio vs. Nigel are the shit."

"But Rising Above 08 has the FANTASTIC Danielson/Nigel match, not to mention Aries/Jacobs which is a terrific feud-ender. Tough call."

"I'd go with Rising Above 08. 2 fantastic matches and a very solid undercard."

Alright Im down to New Horizons and Rising Above 08. Both have two great main events and solid undercards. Need some more help.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I felt the top 2 matches on Rising Above were better than the top 2 on New Horizons. I'd also throw in both were the culmination of the best feud in ROH that year in Jacobs/Aries and the best rivalry in the company's history in Nigel/Dragon. And oh yeah, Samoa Fucking Joe's return match is on RA and the best extra NH has to offer is the Honor Rumble. Easy choice for me as to which is superior, but I have both so whatevvvvvvvvvvvvvs.

Also, Benjo said so and Benjo is homies with Kobashi so that should more than be enough.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I've been catching up on a lot of stuff from Japan lately, here's what I've seen.


NJPW Wrestle Kingdom III (1/4/09)

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship
Yujiro & Naito (c) vs. Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin ***3/4

Manabu Nakanishi vs. Jun Akiyama ***1/2

Hardcore Match for the IWGP Tag Team Championship
Togi Makabe & Toru Yano (c) vs. Brother Ray & Brother Devon **

Riki Choshu, Masahiro Chono, Kurt Angle & Kevin Nash vs. Giant Bernard, Takashi Iizuka, Tomohiro Ishii & Karl Anderson **1/2

Shinsuke Nakamura & Hirooki Goto vs. Mitsuharu Misawa & Takashi Sugiura ****1/4
Currently number 29 on my MOTYC list.

IWGP Heavyweight Championship
Keiji Mutoh (c) vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi **3/4
Wow this one really bored me. My rating is probably being generous, but they went so long, and had some cool stuff in there. Mostly, though, it was just a bunch of the same stuff over and over again, especially by Mutoh. I'll leave it up to you to decide if you wanna watch it.


NOAH (1/12/09)

Takeshi Rikio, Mohammed Yone & Naomichi Marufuji vs. Mitsuharu Misawa, Yoshinari Ogawa & Shuhei Taniguchi **3/4

KENTA & Taiji Ishimori vs. Kotaro Suzuki & Genba Hirayanagi ***3/4

Takuma Sano vs. Go Shiozaki ****

Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kensuke Sasaki vs. Jun Akiyama & Atsushi Aoki ****


NOAH (2/15/09)

Yoshinobu Kanemaru, Kotaro Suzuki & Genba Hirayanagi vs. Naomichi Marufuji, Atsushi Aoki & Akihiro Ito ****

KENTA & Ippei Ota vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima & Kento Miyahara ****

Takeshi Morishima & Makoto Hashi vs. Takeshi Rikio & Mohammed Yone **

Jun Akiyama & Shuhei Taniguchi vs. Takashi Sugiura & Go Shiozaki ***3/4


NJPW (2/15/09)

Yuji Nagata vs. Hirooki Goto ****1/4
Currently number 28 on my MOTYC list.

Kurt Angle vs. Giant Bernard ***1/4

Hardcore Match for the IWGP Tag Team Championship
Brother Ray & Brother Devon (c) vs. Togi Makabe & Toru Yano ***3/4

CMLL World Welterweight Championship
Mistico (c) vs. Mephisto **3/4
I don't watch these guys often, but they seemed to either be very sloppy or just off their game. Decent match, but skippable.

IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship
Tiger Mask IV (c) vs. Jushin Thunder Liger ***1/4

IWGP Heavyweight Championship
Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura ****

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

CZW Best of the best 7

Ruckus vs. Human Tornado - **1/4
Chuck Taylor vs. Ricochet - **3/4
Cheech vs. B-Boy - **3/4
Jigsaw vs. Grim Reefer - **1/2
Sal Thomaselli vs. Ricky Reyes - *1/2
Cloudy vs. Scotty Vortekz - **3/4
Vito Thomaselli vs. Brandon Thomaselli - ***
Joker vs. Drake Younger - ***
Ruckus vs. Justice Pain - ***1/4
Joker vs. Rickey Reyes vs. Human Tornado vs. Scotty Vortekz - ***1/4
B-Boy vs. Brandon Thomaselli vs. Ricochet vs. Jigsaw - ***3/4
CJ O'Doyle vs. Jon Dahmer - 1/2
Team AnDrew vs. Javi-Air & Ryan McBride - *1/2
Hardcore Match - Necro Butcher, Toby Klein & Danny Havoc vs. Mitch Ryder, Brain Damage & DJ Hyde - **3/4
Joker vs. B-Boy - **3/4

Certainly not the best BOTB, but this show flowed really well. The second 4 way match was far and away the best match of the show one of the better 4 way elimination matches I've seen. Also, Ruckus Vs. Justice Pain (in Pain's last CZW match,) was really good.

IWA: Texas "The Realization of Mortality"

Miss Diss Lexia" Alexia Amberglen vs. Alektra Blue - *1/2
Rexx Reed vs. Shawn Vexx - **
Mike Dell vs. Andy Dalton - **
Arik Cannon vs. Skylar Skelly - ***3/4
Jerry Lynn vs. Spiro - **3/4
Shark Girl vs. "The Strong Style Diva" Rachel Summerlyn - **3/4
Darin Childs vs. Steve Amos - ***
The Garza Brothers vs. The Halloween Crew - **3/4
JT Lamotta vs. Tyler Black - ***1/2
Sicodelico Jr vs. "Mr. Showtime" Scot Summers - **3/4

Pretty fun show live. Not the best ACW show, but pretty good nevertheless, with Canon vs. Skelly tearing the house down on this night. Tyler Black Vs. Lamotta was pretty good as well.

IWA: Texas "Distrust, Dismay & Anti-Social Behavior"

Pierre Abernathy & JC Bravo & Berry Breeze vs. The Garza Bros & Gary Jay - **3/4
Laz vs. Jacob Ladder - squash
Massive vs. Sicodelico Jr. - ***
JT Lamotta vs. Awesome Andy - ****
Arik Cannon vs. Brett Thunder - ***1/2
Problems vs. Drew Lucid - **1/2
Andy Dalton vs. Shawn Vexx vs. Spiro vs. Skylar Skelly - **3/4
Rexx Reed vs. Mike Dell - **1/2
Portia Perez vs. Alektra Blue vs. Rachel Summerlyn - ***
Jimmy Jacobs vs. "Mr. Showtime" Scot Summers - ***1/2

This was a great show overall, with the first half having some really great matches. The second half had a great women's contest (I LOVE PORTIA PEREZ !) and a solid main event.
