Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG: Zomebies Shouldn't Run

Hardkore Kidd w/El Jeffe vs. TJ Perkins

Pretty good match. The size difference made the David/Goliath Dynamic work. With all the cool moves they hit during the match it ended up being very watchable and entertaining. Good stuff.

Davey Richards vs. Rocky Romero

This match really doesn't have the seem appeal in 2005 as it would today. I liked how they went about this one, it actually told a nice story to it. Romero came in with his shoulder taped up and for the first 5 minutes or so they had some nice technical encounters where Davey didn't target the injured shoulder. That didn't last though as Davey eventually kick him in the shoulder a few times, it wasn't much but it was enough to get Romero really pissed off and from there the intensity picked up. And by intensity picking up I mean they both looked really angry and stiffed each other a bunch. Now I know that guys doing cool moves and hitting each other really hard is pretty much a staple of indy wrestling but I found myself enjoying this nonetheless. I'm just happy that they justified why they were so stiff with each other. I also loved the closing minutes of this match as it saw Davey give up on the strike battle and attacked the arm again. It didn't work but it was still very clever. Very good match.

Excalibur, Disco Machine, and Ronin vs. Top Gun Talwar, Hook Bomberry, and Mr. Excitement

Fantastic promo by Excalibur before the match becoming enraged by the fans calling Ronin "Hello Kitty." He makes a pretty great comedy heel. Aside from some cool moves this wasn't good at all. I was hoping they would have been more comedic but that didn't happen. The promos before and after the match were the best parts of the whole thing.

Joey Ryan vs. Claudio Castagnoli

This was a lot of fun. The beginning with Claudio schooling the "Technical Wizard" was hilarious and really showed how strong of characters that both guys had. It was cool to see Claudio wrestle so differently here then he does today. We still got to see him show off some of his strength but I'm not used to seeing Claudio diving over the top rope and doing all of these cool technical counters. Not to mention it's refreshing to see him wrestle as a more fun loving face character. A good and fun match, kind of short but it served its purpose.

TNA X-Division Non-Title Match:

Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Chris Hero

I liked the little things that they did in this match. Early on Hero hit Daniels with 3 or 4 arm drags in a row, which really pissed off Daniels. Later on in the match Daniels went for an arm drag of his own and Hero easily avoided it and threw Daniels to the mat. I also liked how they played off the crowd. Someone told the ref that Hero was pulling Daniels hair, which really made Daniels angry. I liked that they both reacted and I liked even more that they incorporated some moves where Daniels blatantly pulled Hero's hair. Aside from that the match was very solid but unspectacular. A good, more technical match.

Super Dragon vs. Quicksilver

This was not what I was expecting from this match at all. Quicksilver wrestled the early part of the match with a style very similar to Super Dragon. He didn't go for high flying stuff but slugged it out with Super Dragon on the mat. It wasn't until Quicksilver taunted Super Dragon and pissed him off that the intensity of the match picked up. From there a pissed off Super Dragon took control of the match and Quicksilver transitioned into the underdog role. Where the beginning fell a little flat the middle of the match was good and the ending stretch was fantastic. I can't complain all that much when a match has a decent story and some cool spots.

PWG Tag Team Championship Match:

Arrogance vs. 2 Skinny Black Guys

I really wasn't a big fan of this. I couldn't shake the feeling of the whole match just being them hitting moves on each other with little purpose. It wasn't sloppy at least but it wasn't engaging either. Kind of a let down on the card.

PWG Championship Match:

AJ Styles (c) vs. Kevin Steen

Hard hitting and entertaining. Steen did a really good job heeling it up as well. The match was lacking something to make it something special but it was still a good match, just not great.

So it was a pretty decent show. Worth the $5 that I paid for it so no complaints. Plenty of solid matches but no great ones. While I enjoyed a good portion of the DVD there are still a lot of other shows that you would be better off watching instead.

WGTT/Generico and Cabana in Richmond...

ROH officials stated weeks ago that the ROH World Tag Titles would be defended in Richmond, VA on July 8th when we return to the Richmond Raceway Complex. It was also stated that the challengers would not be any of the teams competing in the Elimination Four Way at “Best in the World 2011”. So after Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team retained the belts, it removed the Briscoes, the KoW, and the ANX from possible contention. ROH officials took a look at the rest of the tag team scene, and in the spirit of promising many first time match-ups in Richmond & Charlotte, found the team that would challenge Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin for the belts…

…New ROH World TV Champion El Generico & Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana!

Generico & Cabana have challenged once before for the belts as a unit (“Fade to Black” in 2010) but both men, being former champions, are very familiar with the ROH World Tag Titles. They offer a challenge to WGTT unlike any they have faced during their time in ROH, and certainly different more unorthodox than any team they have defended the belts against since capturing them in April Generico & Cabana, as evidenced by WGTT’s interview Sunday night (, should also be prepared for a side of Haas & Benjamin that the ROH faithful have yet to see.

“I’m excited!” said Colt Cabana, “Excited to bring those beautiful tag belts back home with me to Chicago, excited to help my buddy El Generico become ROH’s first double champion, just excited to get back in the ring in Richmond. But after watching that interview from Charlie and Shelton…oh boy, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit scared too. That was intense man, but we’ll be ready for fight if that’s what it takes. Me and Generico will fight you, we’ll wrestle you, we will give you everything we’ve got for those belts, for those fans in Richmond, just for the pride of being professional wrestlers.”

ROH World Tag Champions Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas defend against ROH World TV Champion El Generico & Colt Cabana on July 8th in Richmond VA! Tickets are now on sale for $5 off through the end of the week at:
... and some Steen news.

As mentioned in yesterday’s ROH Newswire (, Ring of Honor officials were deliberating on how to handle the Kevin Steen situation after all of the…chaos…he caused at “Best in the World 2011”. It was an issue hotly debated amongst management and eventually the following ruling was made:

“Effective today, Wednesday June 29th,” stated ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette, “Kevin Steen is banned from ever showing his face at a Ring of Honor event, and should any person or persons attempt to bring him into an ROH event, they too will suffer harsh consequences. In addition, actions will be taken in the future to censor any mention or reference to his name. He made his feelings on Ring of Honor well known on Sunday with one select curse word, and quite honestly I would use the same phrase towards him after that display. So as a result of this new rule, this statement is the last time you will see Kevin Steen’s name mentioned by ROH officials, on, in our Newswires, in our Video Wires, or on a DVD release. Thank you.”

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

So will the Steen segments be edited out of the BITW DVD? I hope not.

They'll probably censor the "fuck Ring of Honor" bit but otherwise I would imagine they'll leave them untouched.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I hope they've got a good reason planned for when they finally do let him back in. Cornette heel turn would be a bit lame but they've booked the whole Corino angle this year brilliantly so hopefully they can keep it up.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Jay/Titus and Mark/King, with a twist...

They have battled it out all across the country, bled buckets in the process, and time after time Jay & Mark Briscoe have squeaked out fluke victories. Finally, at “Best in the World 2011”, the All Night Express pinned The Briscoes fair-and-square during the Elimination Tag Title Match and ended their hopes of becoming 7-Time Champions that night. Unfortunately the Kings of Wrestling ended the ANX’s hopes of claiming their first Tag Titles shortly thereafter when Chris Hero struck Rhett Titus with his loaded elbow pad. But that night’s story didn’t end there…

After Haas & Benjamin retained the belts over the KoW, Jay & Mark returned to the ring with chairs in hand and laid out the champions. As the assault continued, Titus & Kenny King returned to the ring to assist WGTT and remove the Briscoes from the ring. This is a war in which the hostilities will not cease…

Now, after months of battling it out as a unit, ROH officials have put the two teams in a position to battle it out in singles matches…with a twist. In Charlotte, NC on July 9th it will be Jay Briscoe vs. Rhett Titus and Kenny King vs. Mark Briscoe and to insure that neither man’s partner gets involved in the bout…their respective partners will be handcuffed to the ring post!

These two bouts will be back-to-back so as soon as the first ends, the individuals handcuffed will switch places with their partner and the second match will begin: Mark will be restrained when Jay wrestles, Rhett when Kenny fights, and vice versa.

What will it take to bring an end to the issues raging between these four individuals? Maybe the ROH faithful will see when Rhett battles Jay & Kenny battles Mark in Charlotte, NC on July 9th! Tickets for this event are on sale for $5 off the original price until Friday morning at:
