Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Anyone know why that Super Dragon suporter got banned. I knew it was bad to watch that many Super Dragon matches, but I didn't know it was a crime lol.
I've been watching some glory days ROH and hit up Unified last night. Fantastic show, one of the few DVDs of mine that I am not selling. GenNext/Briscoes is on of the best tag matches I have ever seen, where ever the story lacks the crowd fills in and the moves go over the top. Then the main event, wow...I do not like the elbows Danielson does except at Unified and EEII, their integration into the finishes and Nigels selling was fantastic. I have the main event at ****3/4 (my #2 favorite match ever) and the tag at ****1/2 (my #11 favorite match ever). If you want to see ROH at it's best, this is one show you need to see.
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 ****.
