Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

With all my college coursework out of the way, I've finally got time to start watching my stack of ROH DVD's.

ROH Buffalo Stampede II

Delirious vs. Mr. Ernesto Osiris
This could of been cut way shorter, and had Delirious look stronger with his grudge match against Aries the next night

10 Minute Hunt
Eddie Edwards vs. Tyson Dux **

Colt Cabana vs. Shawn Daivari

Roderick Strong vs. Pee Wee

The Kings of Wrestling vs. Up in Smoke ***-***ľ
MOTN by a good margin. Fun tag match throughout though a little overboard with the nearfalls towards the end

Austin Aries vs. Kenny Omega **Ĺ

Jay and Mark Briscoe vs. The All Night Express **ľ

Tyler Black vs. Steve Corino **Ĺ

Well it's pretty obvious why this was packaged along with Death Before Dishonor. Nothing noteworthy on the show outside of a fun KOW match. Crowd was pretty crap throughout

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Dragon Gate USA - Open The Southern Gate

Brodie Lee vs. Jon Davis - **1/4

The Breakout Challenge Match #1 - Four Way Freestyle
Jimmy Rave vs. Lince Dorado vs. Sugar Dunkerton vs. Kyle Matthews - **1/2
Fast and furious from start to finish. Got the crowd goin but it was a bit short. Put Dorado in more multi-man matches please.

Rich Swann vs. Sami Callihan - ***1/4
Much, much better than I expected. Callihan is growing on me as of late, I really like the stiffness he works with. Swann is already awesome of course, and he played the underdog role really well here. This match probably holds the record for "most times wrestling opponents have ever spit on each other."

The Breakout Challenge Match #2 - Four Way Freestyle
Arik Cannon vs. AR Fox vs. Facade vs. Shiima Xion - **3/4
Overall better than the first match, although not paced as quickly. Each guy had their shining moments and it was longer than the previous one.

Naruki Doi vs. Jon Moxley - **1/2
Brodie Lee beat the hell out of Mox before the match, so he had overcome that the whole way through. Decent match but I can never get into much that Moxley does. He tried to sell the leg for a while but then it just kinda went away. Cool slap exchange with Moxley stealing Doi's signature moves towards the end.

CIMA vs. Johnny Gargano - ****
Fantastic match. Chuck Taylor is obviously the most well known guy in Ronin but Gargano is quickly emerging as a breakout star this year. Everything he did was so crisp and smooth and he uses a good mix of strikes, submissions, and combinations. Turning into a really good all around wrestler. The one thing I don't like that I've seen DGUSA do a lot this year is in matches someone will kick out of a finisher late in the match and you'll see someone win after they hit the same thing like two or three times or just give him every finisher they use. It just seems flat at times. But regardless of that, this is a really nice match you guys should check out. I could see rating it even a 1/4* higher.

The Breakout Challenge - Finals
Jimmy Rave vs. Arik Cannon - **3/4
Pretty solid match but certainly no breakout moments from either of the two. I can't tell if Rave is balding or had some kind of hair transplant done but his hair is lookin weird. Pretty funny moment, after the match is over Lenny Leonard messes up and says, "Johnny Gargano wins the breakout challenge!" and then it goes silent for a few seconds. I can imagine he was just covering his mic and laughing his ass off. Pretty ironic though as Gargano had himself a breakout match. And can someone tell me why the hell Johnny Fairplay was there...?

Dream Partner Tag Team Match
PAC & Ricochet vs. Chuck Taylor & Akira Tozawa - ****1/2
AWESOME. Going in I had my doubts because obviously these guys aren't regular tag teams at all but this just has fantastic written all over it. So many intertwining feuds and storylines inside the match it made for a really good story unfolding. You had PAC and Ricochet teaming together, two guys who clearly don't like each other and each one wants to be known as the best high flyer in the world, and they just tried to one up each other the whole match. You have Chuck Taylor and Ricochet, who have a storied history on the indies and obviously the Ronin/Blood Warriors feud going on at the time, not to mention incredible chemistry together which made for some moments early in the match that got everyone in the building on their feet. And finally you have PAC and Tozawa who had a big title match the next night in Atlanta, and they just wanted to beat the hell out of each other. Tozawa split him open with a headbutt on the outside, so PAC was bleeding throughout the whole match. And everyone knows unplanned blood just makes a match 4x better. I'd say the biggest thing I liked about this match was that it never got overly spotty, like you see a lot of in this company. I recently watched the main event from United: Philly and that just got ridiculous. It was like 630 after shooting star, then a corkscrew into a moonsault and there was no selling, just a bunch of flipping. This was much better than that match if you ask me, and honestly it's probably the best tag match I've seen all year. Yeah, I just said that. Watch this sucker.

Overall: 7.25/10
The card as a whole wasn't spectacular, but there was nothing bad and you got a surprising Callihan/Swann match and two fantastic matches on the upper card. Those two alone are worth $14.99 I'd say.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I have been watching some of the matches from Pro Wrestling Superstar's Freshman Phenom and I a really glad I never bothered buying this show.

Peligro Abejas vs Jake Manning and Joey Sylvia was a decent match...but the announcing is god awful for this and every other match! Whoever the color guy is spends the whole show just trying to get himself over it seems just constantly repeating "he should get disqualified" and it ruins every single match for me. I started watching Necro Butcher vs Tommy Dreamer which shoulda been a fun brawl but they had Butcher portray a cowardly heel and the pace was so slow and the wrestling was so sloppy that I stopped halfway through. Terrible, terrible booking decision...shoulda just let both men be themselves and let it be a fun match with just bragging rights on the line. Similar thing with Shelton Benjamin vs Christopher Daniels. Shoulda been a fun, fast paced back and forth match but instead it was slow through what I watched of the match, and above all else the color guy was awful to the point I couldn't finish the match. Not even gonna bother watching the match between Mickie James and Amber O'Neal cause I just know the color guy is gonna ruin it. Can you tell that commentary is very important to me?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH: The Epic Encounter

Da Hit Squad vs. The Backseat Boyz

Kind of a weird dynamic with the heels by the much smaller Backseat Boyz. It made it a lot tougher to put on a good match as you really couldnít expect Acid and Kashmere to control Dan Maff for a long period of time. They made it work though as the Backseat Boyz played heels really well. You wanted them to get their asses kicked by Da Hit Squad and they were able to take all the crazy moves that they did. Nothing too incredible but each team played their roles well, it was easy to watch, and there were some really cool moves.

Hydro and Dixie vs. Dun and Marcos vs. The Carnage Crew

Well more little guys that you want to see get their asses kicked is always a plus. On the negative this is a scramble match. I could probably write the review without even seeing the match. There were a bunch of spots and a good number of them were kind of cool. I think they made tags for the first minute or so but aside from that it was just a free for all. It only lasted a little over 5 minutes so I guess it was fun enough.

ROH World Tag Team Championship Match

AJ Styles and The Amazing Red(c.) vs. Jay and Mark Briscoe

Really good match that wasnít a back and forth spotfest like I was expecting. The Briscoes actually took control of the match for an extended period of time before Red was able to make the hot tag. From there things got pretty crazy but I will give credit to everyone and say that nobody was kicking out of moves that shouldnít have been. It was good but I was expecting better.

CM Punk vs. BJ Whitmer

A little sloppiness early on with Whitmer either botching a dive to the floor or CM Punk failed to catch him. Considering what each guy would go on to do Iím just going to assume that Whitmer messed up. There was also this really awkward spot that happened right after the botch. This was a really hard hitting match and both guys came out looking a lot better then when they went in. Would have liked an ending but having a draw wasnít the worst thing they could have gone with. The in ring stuff reminded more of a main event as this could certainly be described as ďheavyweightĒ style match.

Christopher Daniels vs. Homicide

This is what I get for watching ROH on VHS. It was clipped in the beginning. I donít think I missed much but I could be wrong. So now Iíve seen these two wrestle in 2003 and in 2010. I really didnít like either match all that much considering those involved. Aside from the last 30 seconds of the match I had a really hard time paying attention. It was slow and I canít really say that much of note ever happened. Maybe I missed more in the clip then I think but what I saw wasnít anything all that good.

Alexis Laree vs. Ariel

They showed maybe 30 seconds of thisÖ
No Rating

Samoa Joe vs. Hot Stuff Hernandez

Hernandez was able to put up a decent fight for a while but he eventually got choked out. Hernandez in 2003 didnít impress me at all.

ROH World Championship Match:
Samoa Joe(c.) vs. Colt Cabana vs. Matt Stryker vs. Tom Carter

So right after he mad easy work of Hernandez Samoe Joe sit in a chair and said that he wasnít happy about the reaction the fans gave him when they found out it was a non title match. So he said that he was putting himself into the three way that was scheduled next and would give the title to one of them if they were able to pin him. Joe looked like a badass in this match and it really got him and the title over. Who the fuck is Tom Carter?

2 Out of 3 Falls
Bryan Danielson vs. Paul London

There were matches with cooler spots, matches where guys were stiffer, and matches were there were all sorts of weapons used. Yet none were nearly as good as this match. Before the first fall I thought this was just going to be a technical masterpiece. But as soon as Danielson slapped Paul London in the face at the start of the second fall I realized that this was going to be something a lot more than just a technical match.

Danielson wasnít in full heel mode but he was vicious in this match. When London got his leg caught up in the ropes Danielson went right after it. What made that moment all the better was the fact that London never stopped selling the leg once that happened. Great selling from London and the performance he gave as an underdog was perfect. I can see how he got himself signed by WWE after seeing this. If you havenít seen Paul London wrestle before he went to WWE you really need to see this. Had I seen this match in 2003 I would be ready to call Paul London the next Shawn Michaels. I donít think Iíve ever been able to say this before but in this match Paul London was better than Bryan Danielson.

Danielson was still great in the match. His gradual progression to acting like a heel was done brilliantly. His technical stuff was great and did a great job controlling the match for so long.

This is one of the best ROH matches that Iíve ever seen. Easily the best Paul London match Iíve ever see and one of the better Danielson matches Iíve seen as well.

Bunk House Brawl
Homicide, Julius Smokes, Dusty Rhodes, Iceberg, and Some Guy vs. CW Anderson, Jack Victory, and 3 Other Guys (one of them had a name)

This wasn't very good. A bunch of guys punching each other and cutting each other with forks. Waste of time really, I got almost no enjoyment out of it other than seeing all these weird guys in an ROH ring.

Overall this was a really good show. Danielson/London is a classic, the best early ROH match Iíve ever seen. I know this is out of stock now but itís worth going out of your way to see.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Tom Carter is Reckless Youth, is he not?

Seems like an interesting show, from the perspective of someone living in 2011, where almost all of the guys on that card made a name for themselves.
