Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Looking at those ratings I think I got what I would expect from an Evolve show aside from the main event lacking. I mean most of their shows have a bunch of good matches on the undercard (which this did) and than something really good for the main event.

PWG DDT4 2008 Night 2

I bought this in a bargain bin at a live events a few years ago at a live event. I searched the bin for 15 minutes for Night 1 but alas it was not there. But I bought this anyway and at this point the odds of me ever getting Night 1 are slim. So here we go with Night 2.

Semi-Final Match
Jack Evans and Roderick Strong vs. Los Luchas

So this was pretty much lacking of any and all psychology and story telling. But it had some cool moves. Strong and Evans are also a nice combination for a team. I liked seeing Strong stiff the hell out of everyone and than see Evans flip around a lot. Fun stuff but nothing more.

Austin Aries vs. Davey Richards

This looked like a wrestling masterpiece compared to the last one. Aries worked the back early on but it had no visible effect on Richards (probably because of DAVEYTENSITY). Davey took control of the match after the back work and I was happy to see him heeling it up by yelling at the crowd and a lot of a trash talking. Good performance from Aries as a face, he came across as someone that you really wanted to get behind and cheer for. Good match, which was no shock considering who you had in it.

Semi-Final Match and PWG Tag Team Championship Match

El Blazer and Kagetora vs. El Generico and Kevin Steen(c)

Steen was great in this match in regards to El Blazer. For those that don't know El Blazer is this little Japanese guy with a crazy costume and he does a bunch of cool flippy moves. Naturally Kevin Steen hated him as he picked on him and was just a general dick to the little guy during the whole match. The whole thing was pretty awesome. At first El Blazer was a little off but as the match wore on, the spots got bigger, and they started looking better. Good spots and the heat that Steen created with Blazer really added a lot to this.

Necro Butcher Rules:
Necro Butcher (obviously) vs. Jay Briscoe

They hit each other with chairs a lot. It wasn't all that good but I'll give them credit that it was entertaining at times and they seemed to really dislike each other. But it was just Necro and Jay hitting each other with chairs the whole time. Not particularly good...

Losers Tag Match:
Scorpio Sky, Candice LeRae, and 2.0 (Jagged and Shane Matthews) vs. Joey Ryan, Scott Lost, TJ Perkins, and Hook Bomberry

This is the sleaziest I've ever seen Joey Ryan. He had a full beard and died his long hair blond. That made it all the better when he went and got his ass kicked by Candice. I liked this a lot, they kept things structured for longer than I expected and when things finally broke the down they kept it fun without going into overkill with all the spots. Biggest complaint is that 2.0 and Hook just seemed to be there to take up space as they were out shined by everyone else in the match. I still liked it a lot though.

DDT4 Finals for the PWG Tag Team Championship

Kevin Steen and El Generico(c) vs. Jack Evans and Roderick Strong

They wasted no time at the start. The opening minutes were crazy with everyone flying all over the place. For a few seconds I thought they were just going to go all out bell to bell but they finally slowed it down when Steen was able to isolate Evans alone in the ring. After they slowed it down for a few minutes things got crazy and awesome again. They kept things short and sweet which was for the best. This how I want indy tag matches to be. If they just plan on going all out and having a ton of spots why make it 30 minutes long? I don't think this was 15 minutes but I loved every second of it.

Overall, not the best value for a show; Only about an hour and 45 minutes long. If you can get it cheap it's a nice DVD to pick up but I can't say it's worth paying full price for. Length aside the show was such an easy watch. I got through it in one sitting and was never bored. I'm not sure if I even hit pause for more than a minute or two.

Just wrote a big review for ROH's 9th Anniversary Show/DVD!

I think I enjoyed it more than the Honor Takes Center Stage weekend of shows.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Their Big Bang match was decent, so adding this to the card does no harm IMO.

Interested in seeing what Titus will do on the show now that King's facing Davey.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Kenny King is almost twice as good as he was at this time last year. I look forward to him and Davey, here's hoping for a King upset.

I say you've got to put Titus against Elgin & Generico against Claudio or Daniels.

Should be a good match, I like both guys and they had a great match last time they faced off.
