KC, which Hero/Shelley match was better? PWG or wXw?

I would say PWG. Parts of the wXw match were hurt because I think Shelley was in more back pain in Philly then Resada. Plus the crowd was better because the Philly crowd didn't want to see wrestling, they wanted to see the Thumbtack Jack blood and gore wXw. Which is why they turned on the Bad Bones/Douglas match so fast.

MP’s Indy DVD Bonanza 2010: PWG Kurt Russellmania


I had a shit-eating grin on my face through the whole talky bit. I fucking love this company. Even the Bucks cracked me up on the mic (wait…WHAT?) by name-dropping all of the IWC’s favorites (Bischoff, Hogan, RUSSO) in TNA.

Cutlers, Ryan Taylor, & Christian Von Eerie vs. CK Jackson, Johnny Goodtime, LTP, and Candace LaRae: ***
-Typical PWG opener, which I mean as a compliment. The ladies looked great. For some reason I didn’t enjoy this one as much as the usual big show opener. Probably the lack of Excalibur, although this call by Chris Hero is a classic: “Malachi comes in [attacks Candace LaRae] and he’s a little pervert.”

Brandon Bonham vs. Brandon Gatson: **1/2
-I’m being fairly generous here due to inexperience. I like Gatson, but he’s always been put in a position to look good, and here he had to do a fair bit of carrying. I’m not that familiar with Bonham (just BOLA ‘08) but I think they both still need a bit of work.

Excalibur promo (on a douchebag in the crowd) gets *****. Hell yeah.

Human Tornado vs. Super Crazy: *3/4
-Well…Tornado really tried. And that was the last we would see of him in PWG for the time being. Too sad to think about, so let’s just move on.

Davey Richards vs. Kevin Steen: ***3/4
-SAVE THE SHOW, please. Not that it’s been bad, but not up to PWG standards. And save the show they did. This got weird, it got wild, and it got gross. The most PWG-like match since Danielson/Omega, and that’s the highest praise I can give it.

The Great Muta & KAI vs. Joey Ryan & Scott Lost: ***
-I’m an old-timey Muta mark, but I also know his knees are shit so my expectations aren’t that great. It’s pretty good though. Muta is the indy/puro version of Hulk Hogan, in that he knows how to work just enough to get the crowd into it.

El Generico vs. Jushin “Thunder” Liger: ***3/4
-Something of a dream matchup here. I’ve said before that Generico plays the best babyface in wrestling. Really good lucha-style action. Not much to say really, indy fans will love it.

Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs. Max & Jeremy: ***1/2
-Pretty good tag match, probably not as good as you’d expect considering the talent involved. London looked fat and out of shape, probably because he’d been out for months with a back injury. Kendrick looked better than he has since going back to the indies. The Bucks were the Bucks.

Rob Van Dam vs. Chris Hero vs. Roderick Strong: ***1/4
-Completely disjointed match with no structure at all. A handful of nice sequences are what earned it this rating.

Final Thoughts: I have to say I was a bit disappointed by this show, probably due to unrealistic expectations. It was certainly a lot of fun and any PWG fan should check it out. But again, there are a number of shows I’d recommend before this one.

Next up: Chikara--A Touch of Class

MP’s Indy DVD Bonanza 2010: Chikara--A Touch of Class

Pinkie Sanchez vs. Green Ant: **1/2
-Easily the best I’ve seen Green Ant look. Good opening match to get across the point that things have changed since we last saw Chikara.

The Unstable vs. The Throwbacks & Player Uno: **1/4
-By far the most interesting part of this was the saga of C-A-W. Not much of a match though.

Osirian Portal vs. Sara Del Rey & Daizee Haze: ***
-Pretty good. I thought the ladies were totally believable in there.

Brodie Lee vs. Hallowicked: ***1/4
-These two have pretty good chemistry. Best thing on the show so far. Brodie looked as insane as ever here.

Neo Solar Temple vs. Grizzly Redwood, Pelle Primeau, & Andy Ridge: **1/2
-These jobbers have to die. And for the most part they did. The Order looks like a dangerous trio going into KOT.

Player Dos vs. Tim Donst: ***
-Good YLC match. Donst continues to look better than ever since donning the Vokoder gimmick.

Quacksaw & The Future Is Now vs. BDK: ***1/2
-It was a lot of angle crossed with your usual Chikara go-crazy fest. So yeah, it was a ton of fun. Not without its problems, but I really liked it.

The Colony vs. F.I.S.T.: **3/4
-Definitely not the best match between these two groups. Possibly the worst. Fire Ant just did not look right at all, and I’m guessing he was sick. Not a bad match at all, but also not up to the standards of the Campeonatas and especially not for these two teams.

Final Thoughts: This one really depends on what kind of fan you are. It’s really angle (and BDK)-heavy, so if you’re only looking for snowflakes you won’t find them here. Then again I don’t know why you’d be looking for them in Chikara in the first place. I’m personally enthralled by the BDK angle at this point, so I enjoyed the heck out of this. Your mileage may vary.

Next Up: ROH 8th Anniversary Show

I haven't seen the wXw one, but I can vouch for the PWG match being fucking superb. Just finished watching it. I'm sure it was his back more than it was him selling, but Shelley made that match because of it. It was very much of a war of attrition.

Oh also, this match is just further proof that Shelley is one of the Top 10 (if not top 5) wrestlers in the world today.

Fuck Rasche Brown. Isnt criticised enough IMO cause hes pretty dull/awful.

8. Colt Cabana & Petey Williams vs Austin Aries & Rhett Titus

9. Chris Hero vs Bryan Danielson
***3/4

Overall an ok show but nothing fantastic.


Should have the FCT - Chicago Review up later this week as im about to start the DCFC vs Bucks match. Finally getting through some DVDs.
Quoting my previous review as i noticed Platt hadn't added it to the Official DVD Ratings Thread. Also heres the Chicago show.



ROH - The Final Countdown Tour - Chicago

1. Preliminary Match
The Bravado Brothers vs Andy Ridge & Tony Kozina
*3/4
Andy Ridge wasn't to bad here.

2. Rhett Titus vs Petey Williams
**3/4

3. Six Man Mayhem
Alex Payne vs Grizzly Redwood vs Kyle O'Reilly vs Rasche Brown vs Sal Rinauro vs Silas Young
**3/4
I'll give credit to Rasche... after the previous night he was a lot better here.

4. Brent Albright & Bobby Dempsey vs The House of Truth
**1/2
Would ROH still use Dempsey if he wasn't a fat fuck?

5. Dog Collar Match
Necro Butcher vs Jimmy Rave
***1/4

6. The Dark City Fight Club vs The Young Bucks
***

7. Claudio Castagnoli vs Colt Cabana
***

8. ROH World Tag Team Title Match

Disappointing finish + disappointing match IMO...

9. ROH World Title Match
