Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm a huge R.D. Evans mark though. He's the best thing going in The Embassy right now.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Cole & O'Reilly really should have won on Saturday to set up a nice little feud with them to transition from having the belts for so long to being without them. If they do split then please no Hero vs Claudio feud, just have them team less often and work more singles matches.

Dragon Gate USA - Mercury Rising 2011

Jon Moxley vs. Arik Cannon - NR
The stream joins this match in progress for some reason. What's seen is decent I guess.

Six Way Freestyle
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Brodie Lee vs. AR Fox vs. Jon Davis vs. Silas Young vs. Stalker Ichikawa - ***
Ridiculously fuin match. Can't tell how much I laughed at Stalker's antics. Jacobs/Brodie portion was very good as well.

Masato Yoshino vs. Sami Callihan - ***1/4
I don't really have a problem watching Sami Callihan wrestle but please keep him off the mic. Good match btw.

Open The Brave Gate Championship
PAC(c) vs. Akira Tozawa - ***3/4
A little slower than what I would've expected in the first half but the ladder half is really great. Tozawa's becoming a star and his nearfalls were fantastic. I didn't really like the sudden finish though, thought it could've benefited from a longer home stretch, but the match was already past the 20 minute mark anyway.

Open The Freedom Gate Championship
YAMATO(c) vs. Austin Aries - ***3/4
I have some mixed feelings on this. I liked the match but I wonder if people were actually paying attention. The several minutes of leg work that both guys did went absolutely nowhere and there was certainly no selling. The end sequence was nice but I thought the finish felt kinda flat. Seems to getting overrated imo.

Ronin (Chuck Taylor, Johnny Gargano, & Rich Swann) vs. Blood Warriors (CIMA, Naruki Doi, & Ricochet) ***3/4 - ****
RONIN BABY! So yeah, I really liked this match from start to finish, but it was tough for me to decide on a rating. It was the best match of the night for me but that Ricochet botch at the end was odd and the match should've gone on just a tad bit longer I felt. Nowhere near the level of past Mania weekend 6 mans though.

Overall: 7.75/10
So yes, it was a good show, but I felt it was lacking that one really great match that it needed and should've had. With only 6 matches almost all of them delivered, so that's a plus. One problem was that the ceiling was so low in the venue so you didn't see guys get a lot of height from the top rope. I'd say this was the 3rd best show from Mania weekend.

Already asked but they haven't responded yet. If it's anything like the last COD XII, almost none will be given. Even Hyde can't be that stupid to slot himself in against Daisuke.

As for the Kings and their eventual breakup, we definitely do not need either member of the Kings joining The Embassy. Hell, it took Claudio reforming the Kings to get out of the funk he was in while aligned with Nana. And I haven't seen anything so far to make me believe that this version of The Embassy will do any better then the roster-killing 09/10 one.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm okay with the Embassy right now but they need to keep just being the undercard guys for a while, don't start elevating them by adding guys who would be fine on their own.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The tag team division is incredible in depth, makes me wonder whether Cole/O'Reilly would be better served going the Davey/Eddie route and concentrating on solo action for a while, or combining the too.

The two have certainly grown as tag team wrestlers and could become huge babyface opponents in the midcard.

He's still on the shows, and I haven't seen anything announced to the contrary. DJ Hyde will be facing Sekimoto, but it'll be on the Sunday CZW show in Union City.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It doesn't have that much depth. Briscoes and ANX seem as they will be occupied for the rest of the year together. Maybe throw WGTT in there for part of it too. I guess they'll throw some defenses against Briscoes and Kings for WGTT but I dont see either becoming a lasting feud. They're the only contenders that they've got built up so it doesn't have that much depth. They need to start to build Cole/O'Reilly, Strong/Daniels and Cabana/Generico as major tag teams and not bit parts teams.

It'll end in a ladder war at Final Battle, if not sooner depending on King staying with ROH.
