No wonder you're so down on ROH. You're supposed take the DVDs out of the cases and watch the contents.

P.S. Allied Forces is a shitty show. Now I know why they bundled the best stuff that ROH ever did with it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm just extremely bored with modern Wrestling. Only fun i've had watching it in the last 6 months was parts of the Royal Rumble I saw.

Plus Davey "INTENSITY Garbage" Richards is a focal point of the company now.

Fun match. One of my MOTYs. One of only a couple of WWE matches, this year, that have been worth watching.

If this ROH buyout ruins ROH and leaves SHIMMER high and dry, I could very well be in your boat with you.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Only promotion that has been entertaining me as of late (well haven't seen a show in a while) has been PWG. Wouldn't mind getting a Steen/Generico ROH fued comp from Platt or Seabs or whoever though.

I'm waiting for someone to do a Best of Strangler Corleone comp.

Hint hint.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH - Manhattan Mayhem IV

Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly vs. Michael Elgin & Mike Mondo - ***1/2
First off, MICHAEL ELGIN IS A FUCKIN BEAST! Yeah, well now that's off my chest. Seriously though, the guy had Truth on his shoulders and was squatting him while he was cutting a promo. How awesome is that? Great opener. Mondo botched a thing or two but it can be overlooked. Elgin, always impressing. Always.

Grizzly Redwood vs. Tommaso Ciampa - 1/2*
Pretty terrible. Grizzly has no real purpose in the company.

Mike Bennett vs. Steve Corino - **1/2
Much better than it looks on paper, certainly above average and watchable. I will say the promo beforehand made me feel like I was watching a soap opera or something though, certainly not a wrestling event. "You're gonna wrestle me Corino! Fight meee!"

The Briscoes vs. The All Night Express - ***1/2
Thought the crowd was oddly quiet the first half of the match, probably recooping after the terrible Grizz match and the weirdness from Bennett/Corino. Once Titus got the HOT tag on Kenny they perked up and the majority of them realized the match was designed for a double turn and joined in on the fun. Really good, physical tag match but it had a couple awkward moments, especially one where they were building up to a big spot and then nothing happened. Really excited to see their Chicago Street Fight.

TJ Perkins vs. El Generico - ***1/4
Albeit a little short, this was great. Perkins looked extremely confident in the ring, and the finish was ridiculously cool.

The Kings of Wrestling vs. LAX - ***3/4
As usual, Homicide was outworked by everyone. Another great tag match on the night but I think it had a couple of those awkward stalling moments. The Claudio/Hernandez exchanges were awesome as though. Think it ended a little short and I was fairly disappointed to not see a toss up european.

Pure Rules Match
Davey Richards vs. Christopher Daniels - ****1/4
Brilliant, brilliant match. Everything Daniels has done this year has been great but I even thought Davey stepped his game up in this one. Fantastic transitions from move to move, great use of the ropes to integrate submissions towards the end, and some really cool spots thrown in. I liked that we didn't see any ridiculous Superman-esque kickouts from Davey or a bunch of no selling either. His botch at the end was funny more than anything, and in no way should overshadow the 20 minutes of top notch wrestling we saw before it. One of my personal favorites from this year.

ROH World Championship
Roderick Strong(c) vs. Eddie Edwards - ****1/4
The first few minutes of this were weird, felt like a feeling out process between two guys who you could tell haven't faced each other before. But once they eased in it became really fucking intense and fun to watch. Lots and lots of chops and more of that unplanned blood ROH has had a lot of this year. The last couple minutes of this are the most exciting thing I've seen from any company this year. Once Truth hit the ring and got booted inn the face, you knew somethin real good was about to go down. And that it did.

Overall: 8.25/10
Pretty great show from top to bottom if you just ignore that Ciampa/Redwood match. The double main event is an absolute must see.
