Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Stop after Nigel vs. Steen. In fact, take a break before you watch that match, it goes on forever.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Nigel/Steen is absolutely fantastic. Actually, Northern Navigation as a whole is one of my favorite ROH shows of all time.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I actually have no problems with Evolve's production. The video is clear and aside from the in ring promos (which I have a hard time hearing for just about every indy company) the sounds is great as well. The lighting is never annoying and the venues they run in usually make a nice back drop (The Ace is awesome and The Rec Center when it has a good number of fans is good venue as well).

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I've seen very little Evolve but I do remember thinking that actually now that you mention it. Any DGUSA I've seen I find looks kinda crappy though. Also, I'm always turned off by sound issues, since by trade, I'm an audio engineer.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

EVOLVE would be better if Gabe could actually figure out what he wants to do with it. The shows are good and easy to get through but without a title or focus for something for the wins leaders to do it just seems like Gabe's going through the motions of running a indy fed. I will say the video promos are nice so if nothing else that should keep Flip Kendrick employed.

DGUSA - Mercury Rising: Open The Ultimate Gate 2011 PPV

Johnny Gargano vs. Jimmy Rave - ***

Six-Way Freestyle
AR Fox vs. Sami Callihan vs. Lince Dorado vs. Arik Cannon vs. Rich Swann vs. Silas Young - **1/2

Brodie Lee vs. Stalker Ichikawa - Squash

Brodie Lee vs. Chuck Taylor - ***1/4

Open The United Gate Titles
Masato Yoshino & PAC vs. Blood Warriors (CIMA & Naruki Doi) - ****

No Disqualification
Jon Moxley vs. Akira Tozawa - N/A

Open The Freedom Gate
YAMATO vs. Akira Tozawa - ****

The title matches are definitely the reason to see this show, though Brodie and Chuck put on a good show and Lee killing Ichikawa was fantastic. And at least they showed a video package of Moxley/Tozawa before Tozawa dismissed him in quick fashion.

Chikara - Engulfed In A Fever Of Spite

The Throwbacks (Dasher Hatfield & Sugar Dunkerton) vs. Los Ice Creams - N/A

Kamikaze Kid vs. Tim Donst - *1/2

Grizzly Redwood vs. Daizee Haze - DUD

Ophidian vs. Will O’ The Wisp II - *

UltraMantis Black vs. Tursas - **

Hallowicked vs. Delirious - **1/2

F.I.S.T. (Johnny Gargano & Icarus) vs. Mike Quackenbush and Frightmare - ***1/4

Eddie Kingston vs. Jakob Hammermeier- **1/4

The Colony vs. The Batiri - ***1/4

Unfortunately the follow-up show to the great three nights of King Of Trios is the worst Chikara show in a long time. While the tag match & the trios main event was good most of the undercard seemed to not matter at all. Hope the next North Carolina show is better.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Evolve needs Heels/Faces or big stars bought in each show because its fucking painful to watch. Watching Plain Chucky T is really boring as well. DGUSA is a joke as well. Gabe seems stuck between it being a Supercard show and actually putting together consecutive shows with meaningful storylines. He needs to communicate with the Japan office more and figure out where they are going before he goes and books a heap of matches that don't make sense for the regular DG.

PWG - Card Subject To Change III

Peter Avalon vs. Johnny Yuma - **3/4
Really surprised by how much I enjoyed this. Great opener.

Candice LeRae vs. Portia Perez - **1/2
Real solid women's match. Hilarious commentary too.

Roderick Strong vs. Willie Mack - ****
Willie Mack, where the hell did you come from? I'd honestly never even heard of the guy before DDT4 and now he's legitly trading chops with one of the best in the world. Fantastic match highlighted by Mack becoming a star. Literally everything he did in this match was great. He sold all of Roddy's chops and backbreakers like a champ, and when he returned fire he did it with such force that it really looked like he was retaliating after getting an ass whipping. Fantastic underdog performance from Willie and clearly Roddy is just gonna do what he does and be great. Extremely excited to see more of Mack.

Low Ki vs. Akira Tozawa - ***1/2
Well early on they had that really great looking exchange, but once Ki decided to grab the mic and make a joke it pretty much just ruined the flow of the entire match and they had to get back into the groove of things. But it just never kicked into second gear. It was a good watch but nowhere near what it could've been and was overshadowed by half the card.

Johnny Goodtime vs. Ryan Taylor - **1/2
This was decent, but I don't think it needed to be this high on the card or needed to be as long as it was. It felt like it dragged on for most of Taylor's control segments with all the submissions he applied.

PWG World Championship
Claudio Castagnoli(c) vs. Joey Ryan - ****
Psychologically, this was great. Technically, this was great. Selling wise, damn near perfect. I really couldn't have asked for anymore from the match. Incredible performance from Claudio as he continues to make me wonder why he's not currently employed by Vince McMahon. The first several minutes where he displayed his technical prowess were just ridiculous. Joey's armwork was great and made perfect sense, and him telling the fans he would wrestle clean and then eventually poking Claudio in the eyes was great too. Although the finish was a bit rushed, it looked ok because Joey looked to be in quite a bit of pain. Awesome match.

PWG World Tag Team Championship
El Generico & Ricochet(c) vs. The Young Bucks - ****+
As if the night couldn't get any better, you get this beauty of a tag match. Ricochet was a PERFECT replacement for London, and the Bucks are extremely entertaining as heels this year. Mainly when they're posing, which is all the time. So there you go. Everythiong was crisp and Ricochet didn't botch anything, so that's a big plus. Really it's just what you'd expect it to be. A fast paced, high flying tag match that's a lot of fun.

Overall: 8.25/10
Wow, for an impromptu show this was pretty damn great. Honestly, for my money, top to bottom this may just be the best show I've seen all year. Awesome stuff.

Revolution: USA is up for purchase. I'll be waiting for a % off sale.

I've done some in the past. It's been generally really good too. Never had any problems.
