Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Steen/Generico is one of those matches where the rating doesn't even begin to tell the whole story. I might go so far as to call it the worst match of the year all things considered. It was just so wrong on so many levels.

Also, Seabs, for most people's Davey/Tyler and Briscoes/KOW ratings, take into account most of them were watching it live without knowing the result beforehand.

That is why it's called organized crime.

They probably should have tried to tie it in to Steen's title shot to at least have some reason for a normal match. It was like during the Wolves/Steenerico blood feud suddenly there's a random Submission match for no reason.

Also have to say I liked Black/Corino from Buffalo Stampede more then I though I would. Nothing blow away by any stretch, but it was fine for what it was.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I really enjoyed Steen vs. Generico, don't really understand all the hate.

You could totally feel the intensity, despite it not being a gimmick match. I was really into it.

Not knowing the result wouldn't have made the matches any better though. We're still watching the same matches. Steen vs Generico was fine for what it was but it should have happened before the Chicago Street Fight.

Am I the only one who thought Cornette was a pain to listen to during the event btw

oh and another thing lol, now I'm caught up on the DVD shows, does anyone know where I can find a list of the HDNet cards week by week that they aired or just tell me what matches are like ***1/2 or higher with the date?

It's the same match but it's a completely different experience watching it live. I honestly believed Davey was going to win, and that made me enjoy the match a lot more than I would have knowing he lost in advance.

Here's a mostly full list of matches I'd rate in the ***1/2 and up range from HDNet:

05/30/09, Richards/Edwards vs. Steen/Generico (Tables Match) - ****
06/06/09, Lynn vs. Black vs. Danielson vs. Aries - ***3/4
06/20/09, KENTA vs. Strong - ***1/2
07/18/09, KENTA/Steen/Generico vs. Hero/Richards/Edwards - ***1/2
07/25/09, Black vs. Danielson - ****
10/12/09, KENTA vs. Hero - ****1/4
10/19/09, Aries vs. Danielson - ***1/2
11/09/09, Richards/Edwards vs. Danielson/Strong - ***3/4
11/16/09, Strong vs. Danielson - ****
11/23/09, Richards/Edwards vs. Young Bucks - ***3/4
11/30/09, Castagnoli vs. Kingston - ***1/2
12/07/09, Aries vs. Richards vs. Strong vs. Omega - ***3/4
01/04/10, Richards vs. Strong - ***1/2
01/11/10, Hero vs. Omega - ***3/4
04/12/10, Steen vs. Edwards - ***1/2
04/26/10, Richards vs. Edwards - ****
07/19/10, Steen/Corino vs. Generico/Cabana - ****

There's been other good stuff, but those are mostly the really good matches. I'm pretty sure some people will be higher or lower than me on some of those matches and some others. Claudio/Kingston for example was one that I absolutely loved, but it was eight minutes and some people might DQ it just based on that.

Couldn't agree more. I've always felt that watching any match without knowing the outcome is always alot more enjoyable...DBD certainly wasn't an exception. Every nearfall in the two title matches had me and my mate excited, as we just couldn't predict what was going to happen.

PWG 2009 Battle of Los Angeles: Night One

The Cutler Bros. vs. Malachi Jackson and Ryan Taylor ¾*

First Round Match - Block A

Scott Lost vs. Jerome “LTP” Robinson

First Round Match - Block D

Human Tornado vs. Matt Jackson

First Round Match - Block B

Colt Cabana vs. Joey Ryan **¼

First Round Match - Block D

Johnny Goodtime vs. Roderick Strong **½

First Round Match - Block C

Brandon Gatson vs. Nick Jackson **¼

First Round Match - Block B

Austin Aries vs. Brian Kendrick ¾*

First Round Match - Block A

Kenny Omega vs. Kevin Steen ***¼

First Round Match - Block C

El Generico vs. Alex Shelley ***½

Except for the last two matches and Strong destroying Goodtime, I just didn't enjoy much on the show. Expecting night two to be better.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That show was super fun to watch even though you're right about there only being three good matches. I believe it also saw the first use of Matt Jackson's cartwheel back handspring back rake followed by excessive celebration, which is the single awesomest move of all time.
