Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That Best of ROH on HDnet looks really good. Looks like I'll be sitting 4th row again for the ROH show in September. Part of me wants to get some new DVD but the other side is telling me that I have too many DVDs that I haven't watched yet and that buying more would be financially irresponsbile until I get myself a job.

I might end up ordering some DVD tbh...

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I own all the HDNet shows already but the completist in me and the fact it comes as part of the subscription package means I'll be getting it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I am VERY happy that they are doing a best of ROH on HDNet DVD considering I lost all the shows when I rebooted my computer, and couldn't be bothered downloading them again.

I wonder what volume will have Hero vs. KENTA.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Volume 3 for Hero/KENTA I would guess if they release them for every 12 shows.

You pay for the subscription package? Don't you pay like $17 a DVD for that?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

can't remember at the time it did work out cheaper for me with international shipping but now they're doing B3G2F and 50% sales not so much.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

MP's Indy DVD Bonanza 2010: ROH 8th Anniversary Show

This get drunker and more long-winded as it goes, so if you don’t like it go click somewhere else.

Roderick Strong vs. Brian Kendrick: ***1/2
-Roddy CHOPS the almighty living fuck out of Kendrick. Take that ya little X-Division bitch. Tell Hogan, Bischoff, and Vinnie Roo I said FUCK YOU. Crowd threatens to chant “Twinkies” the entire night. I threaten to drive to New York and start gouging eyes out. Fortunately I only heard it once more (at an OK time) for the rest of the night. Tremendous opener right here.

Bravado Brothers get some promo time. I don’t get this. They’re not good at it at all, but ROH puts them out there anyway. Let some of the lesser indies do that with the rawer talent. ROH needs to showcase the best of the best on that level.

Kings of Wrestling vs. Bravado Brothers: *3/4
-Well this should be funny. Except it isn’t. It’s really just a straight-up match. And not a particularly good one. Kings look good obviously, but this doesn’t do anything for them that a squash on HDNet wouldn’t.

HEY, Joey Ryan promo time! Well that was long overdue. Of course Stevens gets more time and sucks a lot worse at it. What the hell.

Eddie Kingston & Necro Butcher vs. Erick Stevens & Joey Ryan: **1/4
-Another not-so-hardcore hardcore match. I don’t have a problem with them booking these, but I do have a problem with them half-assing it. Kingston takes a nasty table bump and the ending is cool, but otherwise this is no better than the Necro/Stevens match from the last show.

Davey Richards vs. El Generico: ****1/4
-Oh hell yeah. Dream match for me: the ultimate indy babyface versus the ultimate indy killing machine. I love the story early on: Generico is bummed out not totally into it, and Davey has absolutely no patience or sympathy for that. Take two drinks for “AMERICAN WOLVES!“ Quality storytelling, several different things going on here, and the action just built and built and built. Didn’t quite have that intangible to it to make it a classic, but otherwise this was excellent.

Briscoes vs. Dark City Fight Club: **
-I love the Briscoes. I don’t care for the DCFC. And I will let you decide who to blame for this. Crowd gets a little hostile, chanting “Fuck Mark Briscoe” (for whatever reason…what did he ever do except kill himself for your amusement?) and “DC Sucks” and one guy’s “GET THE FUCK OUT OF THE RING.” Not the best example of an ROH tag title match.

Delirious vs. Kenny King vs. Steve Corino vs. Rasche Brown: **1/4
-It was fun enough I guess, and didn't overstay its welcome. Weird spot on the card for it, and I’ve definitely seen better 4CSes (especially in New York). Corino’s jawing with the crowd was probably the highlight, and if Steve Holt Richards continues to insist on running his mouth while wrestling, I hope he was taking notes. AMERICAN HOLT!

Kevin Steen vs. Colt Cabana: ***1/4
-I fucking love Steen’s new entrance song. He still scares me, like to the point where I wouldn’t even antagonize him at a live show. THAT scary. The pre-match promo verges on Dr. Phil territory, and the crowd doesn’t really care for it. The gum play here gets five stars. The post-match activity is much better. This is impossible to rate as a match, so the snowflakes are for the whole package. This feud is going well though, obviously.

Wicked video package sets up the main event. It doesn’t tell the history, because you know it by now. It just highlights the ACTION. This match feels huge.

Austin Aries vs. Tyler Black: ****1/2
-Black looks focused. Aries looks up against the wall (and also, pink). Rayna Von Tash gets the ropes for him, and it’s as good a time as any to mention that she’s been ringside all night. Looking fine. Wassup girl. They need to make this happen on every show from here on out. I will pay $5 more per DVD if that helps. OK then. LET‘S GET IT ON.

This was a heck of a bout. Felt like a big giant apology for the Final Battle match, which I don’t think was that bad and have at about three stars. It was a noble idea, with some poor execution and an abominable crowd. The tragedy was that it was the first iPPV, and what I’d guess was a large number of first-time viewers saw that as our end-all, be-all match. Anyway, THIS match was awesome. Highlights: superplex into an F5 (and fuck "no-selling", that‘s just straight up balls), Death Valley Driver on the apron, Electric Chair into…something. Crowd goes BERSERK in anticipation of a title change. The celebration is a legit feel-good moment that doesn’t feel like a “wrestling angle” at all. Hats off to Pearce on that one.

Final Thoughts: This is really a tale of two shows. There are the matches you want to see (opener, Richards/Generico, Steen/Cabana, and the main event) and the matches that are just there. But the matches you want to see are more than enough to warrant a purchase. The ending is great, historic even. And the entire show just has a big, can’t miss quality about it that makes it all the more worthwhile.
