I think AJ Styles has gotten worse tbh. I've only seen the Williams/Danielson Ironman from that show and I only thought it was ok, Doug Williams adds nothing to his matches.

MP’s Indy DVD Bonanza 2010: DGUSA Fearless

Bonus Features

Davey Richards vs. Masaaki Mochizuki (12/6/09): ***1/2
-Liked the story of Mochizuki taking away Richards’ leg, and thus his striking ability. I’m interested to see how this compares with the stateside version. Something seemed a bit off here though. A lot less overkill from Davey, which was appreciated. He’s accompanied and helped to the back by YAMATO and Shingo, which is easily the baddest group of sons of bitches on the planet. Holy shit.

BxB Hulk vs. Susuma Yokosuka (12/6/09): ***
-This felt like a big title match. That’s probably the best thing I can say about it. I like Hulk alright, but I really don’t agree with the move of making him the top guy in the promotion. He’s better in small doses. Anyway, these extras are much more interesting than the previous releases and I really hope they continue to put important or relevant Dragon Gate matches that from more recent shows on these sets.

Moxley vs. Cannon vs. O’Reilly vs. Gargano vs. Dorado vs. Allen: ***
-And we are LIVE (on tape) from Chicago. This a great collection of fairly young talent, and Brad Allen. I quite enjoyed it. Everyone gets a chance to look good. O’Reilly continues to improve, which is all you could ever ask of him. I definitely prefer this over FRAY! as the get-everyone-on-the-card and get-the-crowd-going showcase.

Silas Young vs. Hallowicked: **1/2
-This was okay. A little disappointing since I like both guys. ‘Wicked is generally better in tag matches than in singles.

Does anyone else watch the PPV Preview, like, every single time? I don’t know why I do. It doesn’t add much, it just gives you that feel like you’re ordering a show and counting down the minutes until it starts. Anyway, this one sucked horse cock. I’ll stop there because it’s basically a free bonus.

Main Program

Gran Akuma vs. TJP: ***
-Good match. It didn’t amount to much, but the work was great. For clarity’s sake I’m a huge sports geek that’s more inclined to favor the athletic, competitive aspects of a match than the storytelling parts, so keep that in mind when you read these. Not that I don’t care about storytelling, but I think it’s more of a bonus than an essential.

CIMA and Super Crazy vs. Mike Quackenbush and. Jigsaw: **3/4
-Wasn’t bad when Super Crazy wasn’t in there, although assaulting Jigsaw with the Thundersticks was just money. CIMA continues to be the most disappointing performer in DGUSA.

Brian Kendrick vs. Jimmy Jacobs: **
-LACEY! I came into that totally unspoiled somehow. More of an angle than a match. Kendrick has just not been fun to watch since he went back to the indies. I hear the match with Strong at 8th Anniversary is good, we’ll see.

Davey Richards vs. Masaaki Mochizuki: ****
-Enjoyed the hell out of this. The striking exchanges at the beginning and the counter wrestling towards the end were top notch. The only problem I saw was Davey’s off-and-on selling of the leg. These are the only two Mochizuki matches I’ve seen but he’s already one of my top 3 or 4 DG performers along with YAMATO, Shingo, and Doi.

Doi and Yoshino vs. Young Bucks vs. Shingo and YAMATO: ***1/2
-Basically just a collection of constant spots, which isn’t a deal-breaker for me but there’s a ceiling to how good of a match you can have with that format. Six-man sharpshooter was fucking epic though. World One just took this thing over towards the end, and it was a much better match for it. A little disappointing considering the level of talent involved.

BxB Hulk vs. Dragon Kid: ***1/2
-The Hulk Dancers get negative two stars. Holy shit. And while I thought the last match underperformed, this was better than I expected. Crisp, snug action. I still think Hulk is a lousy choice for your first champion though.

I've avoided talking about the various angles and promos cut throughout this show, but CIMA's insane promo at the end in broken English is ***** easily.

And on another random note, there's an utterly surreal moment on the highlight clip where they show the full six-man sharpshooter spot at 2x speed complete with chipmunk voices. I think it's my favorite part of the whole DVD. You see, these things are always worth watching.

Final Thoughts: here’s how it breaks down. If you’re a DGUSA fan, you need to buy this. It’s still on the same level of the previous releases. You always feel like you get your money’s worth with this company (particularly with the bonus features on this one). If you’re unfamiliar with DGUSA and want to check it out, definitely start with the first 2 shows instead. If you’re familiar with DGUSA and don’t like it, this show isn’t going to change your mind.

Next up: ROH SoCal Showdown

FIP Evening the Odds 2005

Picked this up when ROH was trying to give away as many FIP DVDs as they could so I figured it would be a fun watch and that the show wouldn't be too long.

Pelle Primeau vs. Erick Stevens

Good 5 minute Big Man vs. Little Man match. Stevens was never in much danger of losing but Pelle out up and admirable fight. Not bad at all.
**


Seth Delay vs. Derrick Dempsey


First time seeing Derrick Dempsey and it was weird. I spent a lot of time convincing myself that it wasn't a slimmed down Bobby Dempsey. Match itself was nothing spectacular but all the moves they hit were pretty good looking though. No story or psychology to the match at all though and it was a little tough to stay focused.
*3/4


Kory Chavis w/Heartbreak Express and So Cal Val vs. Davey Andrews

Pretty solid stuff, Val is a good heel manager and was pretty funny at ringside. I enjoyed the power stuff that they did too. Nothing to get excited over but an ok match for what it was.
*3/4


Phil Davis w/Sean Davis and So Cal Val vs. Sal Rinauro

Good stuff with Sal battling the odds against Davis, Val and Chavis all at ringside. Once again not a noteworthy match or anything but it was pretty well worked.
**1/4


Sean Waltman vs. Shane Hagaorn w/Dave Prazak

So a big brawl broke out with the DP associates and Strong and his team and this match started as the 3 people left in the ring were Hagadorn, a ref, and Waltman. Match was pretty quick but they made Hagadorn look like he could hand with someone like Waltman for a few minutes. Nothing special, seemed like a fairly typical match you could see on TV 4 nights a week.
*3/4


Steve Madison vs. Jarrelle Clark

Best match of the night so far, which isn't saying much. They had time to start the match kind of slow and let things start to pick up near the end. Good and very enjoyable match.
**3/4


LaDuke Jakes vs. Jaison Moore and Evan Starsmore

It was a big black man against two little white guys. It was a squash but it was kind of fun to watch Moore and Starsmoore get beat up.
1/2*


Black Market vs. Altar Boy Luke and Masked Flipper #6

I have to admit that I did laugh when Dave Prazak blamed the laziness of the Masked Flippers for FIP DVDs taking so long to be released. The match itself was pretty much generic tag match #2, heels isolate a face until he makes a hot tag. Only this time the hot tag to the Masked Flipper ended the match a few seconds later. Weird ending that came out of nowhere but everything else was worked well enough I guess.
*3/4



Elimination Match:

DP Associates of Austin Aries, Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, Jimmy Rave, and Adam Pearce w/Dave Prazak and Mr. Milo Beasley vs. Roderick Strong, Sean Waltman, Tony Mamaluke, Sal Rinuaro, and Jerrelle Clark

I loved this one. Very old school style they worked and I think it came across very well. No crazy spots or anything just a consistent pace throughout and it was a really easy match to watch for the 45 minutes or so that it lasted. I loved what they did as it was just so different from a lot of the stuff that we see today. Well worth a watch.
****


Yeah this was a one match card but the show was a little over 2 hours and about an hour was devoted to the main event. Many of the matches involved Team Strong trying to recruit more people for their team as it started out with just Strong and Mamaluke when the night started. Considering this was show #1 on a FIP DVD that I either spent $2.50 on or $3.00 so it looks like I will be getting my money's worth.

ROH is running another sale: all 2002-2008 shows $10 each. No 10% off like previously, but meh, all the same.

http://www.wrestlingforum.com/news/all...-only-10-each/

Guess I'll have to make another order even if my previous one hasn't arrived yet. Currently way too addicted to older ROH to pass a good opportunity...

I'm thinking that would be a good time to pick up the sweet new American Wolves shirt.

Of course then I'd have two Wolves shirts and no Davey shirts, which you'd think would be inevitable.

Yeah ROH needs to run a 30% off sale or more in order to get me to but tickets for September. Might even pick up a DVD or two.

I think I'll pass on the shirts though, I go to ROH shows, at most, every other month and my one Kevin Steen shirt is more than enough.

Yeah, I like the new Wolves shirt, but I already have a good amount of wrestling shirts to pick from when I'm going to a show; I don't think I'll pick it up unless I can get it for $7.50 like my NRC shirt. You going to try for Section A again, Taylor? The new site doesn't have a Special Instructions box, but if you make a ticket order with PayPal you have to send the payment manually anyway so you can just add a note then.
