Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well I don't know if it was offically a rule but they were always pretty lax about illegal object attacks outside the ring. Can't remember too many DQ's in general in ROH till the Pearce era started. Just Gabes way of booking I suppose.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH A Cut Above (4/24/09)

Bryan Danielson vs. Eddie Edwards ***3/4
I think I liked this a lot more than most people did. It was a pretty exciting match and they brought the hate, as Danielson always does.

Rasche Brown vs. Silas Young vs. Matt Cross vs. Claudio Castagnoli *
Does Pearce hate Claudio?

Jimmy Rave vs. Grizzly Redwood DUD

Austin Aries & Rhett Titus vs. The Phoenix Twins (Tweek & Dash) **1/2

Chris Hero vs. Colt Cabana ***1/2

Egotistico Fantastico vs. Jimmy Jacobs **3/4

Davey Richards vs. Tyler Black ****

Jay Briscoe & Kevin Steen vs. Dark City Fight Club (Jon Davis & Kory Chavis) ***

ROH World Championship
Jerry Lynn (c) vs. Roderick Strong ****

Pretty awesome show, except it could have been better if they would have spread out the three matches between Danielson/Edwards and Hero/Cabana. Those three matches almost took me out of the show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Don't feel like doing a full star rating report, but A Cut Above just felt really, really abbreviated to me for whatever reason. Like they tried to cram nine matches into two and a half hours.

Wait, that's exactly what they did. 2.5 hours is enough time for six, maybe seven matches. Not eight, and certainly not nine, even if one of them is a sqaush.

I liked the main event as well as Davey/Tyler, and Jimmy/Ego surprised me kind of a lot. It was nice to see Jimmy (and Colt too) working with people other than the ex-AOTF/Embassy like they normally do. Everything else was pretty meh, and Matt Cross is bad.

I agree with this 100%. It was really nice seeing Jacobs against someone not named Black, Necro, Delirious or Lynn.

The show definitely could of done without the FCS and the Rave/Redwood match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Honestly, if they added ten minutes to Davey/Tyler and Strong/Lynn, it would have improved the show a lot. Somebody said that Lynn making a comeback every 10 seconds really hurt the match, and I agree with that 100%. As great as it got in the finish, it all seemed rushed because there was no point to anything at the start or the middle. It was basically "let's have some chain wrestling, then Roddy gets to run through all his moves, then Lynn hits the CPD for the win." It wasn't bad, but it could have greatly improved if Lynn had actually taken the time to sell something early on.

Davey vs. Tyler was a better match imo, because while it still felt short, it felt like a complete match.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

wXw - Broken Rulz IX

Bad Bones vs. Carnage - **3/4

Adam Polak & Marc Roudin vs. Bernd Föhr & Axeman - **1/4

wXw World Heavyweight Title
Absolute Andy vs. Colt Cabana - ***

Big Van Walter vs. Zack Sabre Jr. - ***1/4

wXw Tag Team Titles
Doug Williams & Martin Stone vs. The Kartel (Terry Frazier & Sha Samuels) - ***1/4

wXw World Lightweight Title
Tommy End vs. Mark Haskins vs. El Generico - ***3/4

Pretty good show. The tag title match was basically just a set-up to a Streetfight Title match between the teams later in the summer and I can’t understand why the ME was short considering they had plenty of time to go.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wait Benjo you agree 100% with something and it isn't the "Matt Cross is bad" part of that statement?

I do not agree that Matt Cross is bad....because I think he is worse then bad

ROH This Means War

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Alex Shelley
Still a great opener and 1 of Claudio's best in ROH. ***½

Davey Andrews and Azrieal vs. Jason Blade and Kid Mikaze

Ricky Reyes vs. Mitch Franklin ¼*

Four Corner Survival

Nigel McGuinness vs. Kikutaro vs. BJ Whitmer vs. Nosawa

Austin Aries vs. AJ Styles
I remember finding this really disappointing the first time I watched it because I had incredibly high expectations. This time around I thought it was incredibly fun. ***½

Grudge Match

B-Boy vs. Colt Cabana **¼

Curry Man vs. Jay Lethal ***

ROH World Title Match

Bryan Danielson vs. Roderick Strong
Couldn't remember much about the first time I watched this but shit I loved it this time. As the match went on and Strong kept chopping Danielson harder and harder as well as the crowd keeping on chanting Roderick, you could see Danielson's prick side starting to appear and then fully explode when the crowd asked him to do the Ole kick and him replying with "Fuck Off". Never really been a fan of the ending to the match but still an awesome match nonetheless. ****

Pretty good show, much better then I remember it being. Claudio/Shelley, Styles/Aries and Danielson/Strong are the obvious highlights and the Lethal/Curry Man and comedy FCS are pretty enjoyable as well.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I loved the ending of that 1st Strong/Dragon match.

And yes Matt Cross is worthless.

Hey now. He makes everybody else on the same show look better because they don't kill themselves trying to do moonsaults.
