That match was awesome when I watched it while listening to the Suicide Machines. Probably because the music made it seem much more exciting than it really was.

Also, SD/Punk was great when set to Never Mind the Bollocks.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Evolve 1

I picked up the first 2 shows last night and figured I should get to watching them as soon as possible so I don't get too many unopened DVDs on my room. I'm not going to lie, I'm also looking forward to seeing myself in the front row as well.

Kyle O'Reilly vs. Bobby Fish

A really good match for 6 minutes and a perfect choice for the first ever Evolve match as I feel it really shows what Evolve is trying to do. Stiff stuff and at times it honestly looked like they were just fighting each other.

Chuck Taylor vs. Cheech

I just want to point out the greatness that has been Chuck Taylor's booking in Evolve. Here he is in a tryout match and by show three he would end up in the main event.This had some good back and forth stuff that didn't see them go crazy with the ending. Another solid match, a step below the first but not bad at all.

Arik Cannon vs. Ricochet

A great clash in styles and this was just a sprint from beginning to end. I loved Ricochet's flashy offense only to see Cannon just hit him with some devastating move. Another great short match, Really liking the flow to the show so far.

Dark City Fight Club vs. Areoform

Who needs tag? I have no idea what they were thinking when they wrestled this match the commentators even said that someone should make a tag. Nobody had a clue what was going on. Areform wasn't good in this match at all and I'm not a DCFC fan at all. Not good.

Niya vs. Mercedes Martinez

SQUASH! Sort of fun for about a minute I guess. Don't see what the point of it was in all honesty.

Brad Allen vs. Silas Young

So they start out throwing bombs at each other at the crazy pace of the other matches. They go at each other like that for a while until Allen takes a brutal bump when he hits his face on the floor after a moonsault. From that spot on things start to take a more serious and personal. I liked how they picked up the intensity for the last few minutes. This was much better on DVD than I remember it being in person.

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Ken Doane

As much as I hate to admit it I was bored with the match. I have no idea what they were going for in this one but it didn't work. Doane had such a long headlock that Randy Orton would have been proud to call his own. It was just hard to watch. Jimmy Jacobs on the mic is so much better than Jimmy Jacobs in the ring. His heel promo against Tommy Dreamer was so much better than the actual match.

And the funniest segment of the night happened with Doane storming out of the rec center after the match. He was still in his wrestling gear, it was January.

Chris Dickinson vs. Johnny Gargano

Pretty good stuff but nothing that you've never seen before. They were stiff and Dickinson screamed a lot. Good for what it was. Fun to watch but if you've seen a few indy shows before you've probably seen this exact match. A few good moments make it a decent watch.

TJP vs. Munenori Sawa

Damn, this was an incredible match. Everything that we were expecting when Evolve first started up. Hard hitting with great technical stuff thrown in. I think they went out there with the goal of convincing everyone that wrestling is real; and they came pretty damn close.

Akuma's Army vs. Team Frightning

Kind of out of place on the card, or at least Frightmare and Hallowicked were, but the match itself was still lots of fun. I don't watch much Chikara so I don't know how different this was from what they normally do. Good spots but nothing too crazy or dangerous, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Considering the matches it was put between I think it served it's purpose, a less intense but still a very good match.

Kota Ibushi vs. Davey Richards

They beat the shit out of each other and it was awesome. There really isn't much else to say.

This was a great show. A about 2 hours and 15 minutes and there were a ton of quality matches. Even the matches with low ratings weren't terrible because they were kept short. A great start from a company that I hope can keep going strong.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Interesting to see that they made the Lucha main event from the PPV a bonus match.
Common sense really. I would've been scratching my head if this was the main on the DVD release.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

FIFTY PERCENT sale at ROH. Holy shit.

Unfortunately they seem to have taken down the two newest pre-orders (Phoenix Rising and Big Bang), which really pisses me off.

EDIT: From the Ashes as well (already pre-ordered that one though).

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

They do have the Cross the Line Vol. 3 pack though, which I'm told is WIDESCREEN.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That cross the line pack looks awesome. Too bad they don't have genesis instead of against all odds though.

Hey McQueen, we're going to Bragging Rights. Mark your calendar.

As long as there's a Triforce, there will be a Zelda;
as long as there's a prosperous kingdom, there will be an evil bent on destroying it;
and as long as there's an oppressive force threatening Hyrule, there will be a boy...

in a green tunic, silver shield, and magic blade to stand against it.
