Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

If I remember correctly Tom Carter was Reckless Youth who was an indy legend in the 90's.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

You might be right about that. Now that I think about it they might have mentioned the name Reckless Youth. I know nothing of indy wrestling before ROH aside from ECW.

He's one of the Godfathers of modern indy wrestling, along with Daniels and Quack. TBH I can't remember if I've ever seen one of his matches.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I saw one Reckless vs. Quackenbush match from like 1997 that was on a SMV comp. God damn the things people marked for fifteen years ago would not get any reaction at all today.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

All i've seen from him is a little bit of his early ROH work. Seemed like a sound worker but nothing to go nuts about.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Almost a year later, I finally get the chance to rewatch Death Before Dishonor VIII.

ROH Death Before Dishonor VIII

Grudge Match
Kevin Steen vs. El Generico ***
Very good opening match though after seeing everything else they go through in the feud plus the fact they had the street fight BEFORE this brings this down somewhat as it did feel weird at times watching this knowing they had already tried to kill each other

The All Night Express vs. Up in Smoke **

Austin Aries vs. Delirious *

2nd Annual Toronto Gauntlet

Eddie Edwards vs. Roderick Strong vs. Colt Cabana vs. Steve Corino vs. Shawn Daivari vs. Tyson Dux **
This was actually somewhat better then I remember.
Eddie Edwards being pinned by Tyson Dux and then one year on he's world champion


Pick 6 Series
Christopher Daniels vs. Kenny Omega ****
I remember being surprised at just how much I enjoyed watching this live and yet on my second watch I feel the exact same. It just completely exceeded my expectations (though it's not like I had really low expectations or anything, just expected an enjoyable match)

No Disqualification Match for the ROH World Tag Team Championship
The Kings of Wrestling vs. Jay and Mark Briscoe ****-****
What a bloody war. Though I prefer their Big Bang match, this is almost as awesome as that. Gotta love The Briscoes when it comes to matches like this

ROH World Title Match
Tyler Black vs. Davey Richards ****
And the show ends up getting even better. For 30+ minutes (which flew by) these two just tore the house down. Every exchange was crisp, the wrestling was great and the crowd were HOT for the entire match. The only real problems I had were a couple of botches (which admittedly look like they happened because both men were tired) and the Hagadorn interference which took me out of it slightly. Still an incredible match, one of the best of 2010 and my personal MOTY

Though I've still got quite a few shows to watch, this is currently the best ROH show of 2010 for me with a very good opener and then the second half is certainly up there with some of the best in ROH history

This match was ruined because of tag rules (like so many matches from TNA history, for example). I mean, I can't fucking stand tag rules in No DQ matches. Sure, it was for short period of time. Sure, announcers did a nice job explaining why ref did that, but I just can't stand it. Plus, another detail I disliked is that Mark kicked out of impossible at one point - 3 bicycle kicks from Claudio and Rolling Elbow from Hero combination. Way too much. This was one phenomenal war, but those two things ruined the match for this viewer.
