I wont lie I did enjoy his match with Davey but he could have sold the arm a little better when he went on offense.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It was really short and a fun match. I liked it better than any of the other matches before intermission (dark match aside).

And it was at least 2*s better than that awful tag title match. It made me question why I was even there and why I watch wrestling.

Chris Hero just being in the tag match makes it better then any match Colt has been in with anyone not named Davey or Steen since about 2006.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The tag team match was a masterpiece, when it comes to characterisation of the four different teams. Four completely different personalities/approaches.

I hate multi-man matches atm and I thought that it was great. You can see Cornette's NWA influence is having some effect on the tag division nowadays too.

There were one or two botches though. Kenny and Rhett still aren't the finished article.

Just saying.

Can't wait to check out this show though.
Arn Anderson never held a World Title, sadly.

OH THAT GUY? Yeah, that was really emotional when they threw the belt on the first person that they could, when they thought the guy who's face was on the belt was going to prison. Really moving. Reminded me of Ian Rotten's touching 24th IWA:MS win.


Ahem...I'm gonna rewatch the Davey post-match and the first half of the show again while I wait for McDonalds to start serving real food.

My Best in the World 2011 thoughts:

Cabana vs Ciampa - **1/2

Lethal vs Bennett - n/a (computer crashed, need to go rewatch!)

Homicide vs Rhino - **3/4

Corino vs Elgin - **1/2
[Post-match stuff with Steen - absolutely incredible. I cannot wait to see how this angle develops]

Generico vs Daniels - ***1/2
~ Not as enamoured by this as some. It was a damn good match but it never kicked into a high enough gear for me to go near the **** territory.

Kings vs WGTT vs ANX vs Briscoes - ***1/2
Early on when things were breaking down and all four teams were going at it, I was loving it. And then it just draaaaaaagged. The weak finish didn't help either.

Richards vs Edwards - ****1/2
This was the epic match I was expecting. Loved all the submission-based/mat wrestling, these two gel so well, we definitely need a rematch to make it a trilogy.

All in all, I wasn't overly happy with the first half, but the Steen stuff was magnificent which saved it for me. And the main event was beautiful, no qualms there. A definite recommendation.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Anyone checking out EXW? Their latest show had a nice Willie Mack title defense.

WGTT signed with ROH...

ROH officials are excited to announce that the ROH World Tag Team Champions Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin, collectively known as Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team, have signed their names on the dotted line and are officially under contract to Ring of Honor Wrestling!

Haas & Benjamin debuted for ROH at “Glory by Honor IX” when the unsuccessfully battled then-Tag Team Champions The Kings of Wrestling in a non-title bout. It would be several months before the ROH faithful saw WGTT in action again, at the December 2010 “ROH on HDNet” TV Tapings to be exact, but since that return they have remained undefeated as a team, culminating in Charlie & Shelton ending the nearly one-year title reign of the KoW at “Honor Takes Center Stage: Chapter 1”.

Since capturing the belts, WGTT have successfully defended the belts on two occasions, first against The Briscoes at “ROH Revolution: Canada” and most recently this past Sunday at “Best In The World 2011” where they managed to retain against the Briscoes, The All Night Express, and The KoW in an elimination four way.

Now Haas & Benjamin head into Richmond, VA on Friday night July 8th to defend their belts one again; this time against, as of this writing, unannounced opponents. But following the vicious beatdown perpetrated by Jay & Mark Briscoe after the match last night, Charlie & Shelton spoke their piece in the locker room to ROH’s cameras:

He can still wrestle though. Haas just needs to be the only talker in that group and we'll be fine.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

i only enjoyed cabana vs ciampa, rhino vs homicide and of course davey vs eddie, but i was expecting that the other matches were going to be fun too, specially the 4 way tag.
