I actually thought that the tag was one of the better matches of 07, and by beter I mean top twenty. But I am a Jimmy mark and I was an AOTF junkie so I need to rewatch. Tyler impressed me more at FB07 than TNP08.

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I decided that I was going to try and stop buying wrestling DVDs for a while. I went about a month. I was considering getting Extreme Rules tonight when my dad said he would pay for it for my brother and I (I'm 18 and still live at home so my parents can buy me stuff). I used the $40 that I now wasn't spending and went to ivp and just ordered 17 discs. I got some good ones though.

1 x NOAH Top 25 matches in NOAH History (9 Discs) $24.99
1 x Toryumon WrestleJam 2 $2.99
1 x Toryumon Wrestlejam $2.99
1 x NJPW 01/04/2008 January 4th 2008 (2 Discs) $5.99
1 x FMW 05/05/1996 May 5th 1996 (2 Discs) $5.99
1 x ROH invades Japan V.1 (IVP Custom Comp) $2.99
1 x Best of Kurt Angle V.1 (IVP Custom Comp) $2.99

I guess I accidentally put the Best of Angle in the cart. Didn't mean to do that...

It looks pretty good though.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Finally got to finish watching this... need a sudden influx of money for some more dvds....

ROH - Northern Navigation
1. Chris Hero vs Ruckus **
2. Delirious vs Kenny Omega **1/2
3. Sara Del Rey vs Jennifer Blake *1/2
4. Erick Stevens vs Go Shiozaki ***
5. Bryan Danielson vs Claudio Castagnoli ****
6. Roderick Strong vs Naomichi Marufuji ***3/4-****
7. Nigel McGuiness vs Kevin Steen ***1/2 Thought Steen was awful... He just appeared so slow although maybe its because i just finished with Marufuji/Strong but it was a big let down IMO.
8. Jay Briscoe/Austin Aries vs Jimmy Jacobs/Tyler Black ***1/4 - Was just a brawl with the run ins from Necro/Mark and its just repetitive....

While theres some definite qualities about the show i just felt let down by the main and semi main but thats probably because i knew Steen wouldnt win...

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Unscripted (9/21/02)

Street Fight
Paul London vs. Michael Shane *****
I just watched this match for the first time, and I didn't really know what kinda reaction it got, so I had little-to-no prior knowledge of what I was about to witness. I have to agree with the crowd after the match that this was a "5-star match". It had fast-paced action, it had slow and methodical points, and each and every spot had so much anticipation that they became epic moments. They hit each other so hard throughout the entire thing. Oh and even though I know that Paul London is alive and well (kinda) today, I still thought he might die. If you have not seen this match, go watch it. Most likely, you won't be disappointed.

Mark Briscoe wishes he could put on a spotfest clinic mixed in with tremendous psychology like that one.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It's just too bad that Shane/London is on such a shitty show.

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.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Hopefully Nigel's new hairdo will lead to the return of Pure Wrestling Nigel, and he'll leave Pseudo-Puro-Eurotrash Nigel outside, where he can lariat trees until his arm falls off.
