Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Supercard Of Honor VI

1) Homicide vs Michael Elgin: A sluggish opener full of awkwardness & hesitation. *

2) Cole & O'Reilly vs Bravados: Good basic tag match with an action-packed home straight. ***1/4

3) Steve Corino vs Mike Bennett: All credit to Corino for getting the crowd into a Bennett match. *3/4

4) Chris Hero vs El Generico: Disappointing from these two, even given its place on the card & lack of back story. Silly finish too. **3/4

5) Davey Richards vs Charlie Haas: For someone who's so over when his music plays, Davey has a frustrating knack for losing the crowd with his incoherent jumbles of big moves & patchy selling. At one point they traded 10 german suplexes to a smattering of applause & a 3-man "this is awesome" chant which promptly died on its arse. **1/2

6) Claudio Castagnoli vs Shelton Benjamin: Claudio dominated the early going with a immense display of technical prowess & crowd interaction. Shelton's comebacks lacked a certain spark, though. ***

7) Christopher Daniels vs Colt Cabana: Some nice exchanges early on. **1/2

8) Briscoes vs ANX: More of a methodical, old-school (ie. pre-ECW) style brawl than its ROH predecessors. They didn't go all over the building or overdo the weapons shots & the result was a really intense & believable scrap. ****

9) Eddie Edwards vs Roderick Strong: Roddy was fantastic here as the former champ on a desperate mission for redemption. He worked over Eddie's back relentlessly, while the champ relied on an annoyingly random assortment of counters & comebacks, before slapping on an unrelated submission. ***3/4

Aside from the opener, there's nothing dreadful here, but the card falls short of previous SCOH benchmarks. Several of the finishes are really abrupt & undramatic, and it's noticeable of late that ROH crowds aren't as bothered about the outcome of matches as they once were.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

So I finally watched the first part of Anniversario weekend... The match that opens the 12 Large Summit was as epic as you'll get in a building with that many people.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Finished watching SCOH6 yesterday. Watched it over a few days, was gonna talk about the first 2/3rds that I watched at the weekend but then couldn't be bothered and the same story yesterday. Needless to say I wasn't crazy about the show and there wasn't really anything that needed pimping out.

Cide vs Elgin was a very average opener.

Cole/O'Reilly vs Bravados was awesome. I'd probably say it was the 2nd best match of the show for me. I'd also say that Cole/O'Reilly are the best team in ROH atm. Sure KOW are better but they haven't done a whole lot this year and Cole/O'Reilly are always the guys I look forward to seeing on each show and their matches always deliver, often overdelivering. Bravado's looked really good too. Fast paced and slightly spotty 10-15 minute tags rock.

Corino/Bennett was nowhere near as fun as the Canada match. The Jacobs return wasn't really done all that well I didn't think, he just kinda popped up out of nowhere.

Hero/Generico was a huge disappointment. Seemed like there was no reason to care about two of the best wrestlers on the Indies having a match together and they tarnished it even further with loads of bullshit. The "comedy" stuff at the beginning felt so out of place in this match and then the retarded finish just completely killed the match. Highlight was Hero's pants by some distance.

Davey/Haas started off well but then it ended up dragging really badly. The ending of the match seemed to have the same layout as the finish to Richards/Edwards too interestingly.

Claudio vs Shelton was kinda average too. Haas and Benjamin really desperately need to get some moves over as finishers.

Daniels vs Cabana did nothing for me either. Sinclair throwing Truth out before the match with no reason annoyed the fuck out of me as he's an actual manager so he's kinda allowed to be out there as long as he doesn't do anything wrong. Fucking stupidity.

Chicago Street Fight was good but I didn't think it was great and compared to other memorable street fights that ROH have done this one paled in comparison. The match never really seemed to have a focus or anything and it felt more like a spotty hardcore match than a hate filled brawl. Lacked any memorable spots too or anything to get me excited personally. The first table spot was really good but nothing else came close to it. Finish was awful too or more accurately the execution of it was awful. The HTCS match was better I thought.

Edwards vs Strong was very good. Started off really fucking well with Strong going straight on the front foot and not taking Eddie as lightly this time. I wouldn't say that the match suffered from being too long but it did get slightly dull towards the end and started to drag on a little. Eddie as always takes an awesome ass kicking but when it was time for him to comeback it just didn't work. It seemed way too much of Strong and nowhere near enough offence from Edwards before the finish. I'm not really sure why the head stomps get stopped so soon but other stuff doesn't. Sinclair never stopped matches that instantly for Danielson's elbows and with them he had every method of defense trapped with Eddie doesn't have. It's like Sinclair doesn't even give the other guy the chance to defend himself and get out of it so stomps to the head = instant win apparently. That spot came way too suddenly without any build to an Edwards comeback either.

Along with having a load of underwhelming stuff on it, the show had no flow to it and it just felt like a totally random bunch of matches with no significance like you'd get on a DGUSA show.

Cole/O'Reilly vs Bravados - ***1/2
Briscoes vs ANX - ***1/4
Edwards vs Strong - ***3/4

ROH :The Best of Teddy Hart

For the past four years, the roster of Ring of Honor has contained many of the most talented wresters on the independent scene. Legendary names like Samoa Joe, "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels, Paul London, Homicide, C.M. Punk and Jay Lethal are just a few of the high profile wrestlers who have spent time in the ROH ring. One wrestler stands out from all the others. One man who is head and shoulders above everyone else in terms of talent and charisma.

That man is Teddy Hart.

This exciting new release from ROH features all of Teddy's classic matches in Ring of Honor, including the must-see Scramble Cage main event from Main Event Spectacles. You'll be amazed at Teddy's high flying as well as his after match antics! See for yourself why Teddy Hart is always the talk of the industry no matter where he goes.

From Teddy's incredible ability to produce hilarious, yet on-point promos to his one-of-a-kind daredevil style highspots, this DVD contains everything a fan could ask for. As a special bonus, Teddy Hart provides commentary while watching a exclusive "dramatization" of his famous altercation with C.M. Punk at the White Trash Cafe. See if you can find the Easter Egg with the 30 minute documentary on Teddy training his cat army! This is one DVD every wrestling fan is going to want to add to their collection!
Straight Shootin' with the Green Lantern Fan:

From crying at ECW's One Night Stand to Scott Hall threatening sodomy, legendary wrestling fan Green Lantern Fan has seen it all. In this exclusive two hour shoot with ROH, Green Lantern Fan goes through the proper modulations for your watch in order to achieve correct match time recording as well as selecting the appropriate Green Lantern shirt for each and every occasion.

What does GLF think of other attention-getting fans? Between Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner, and Guy Gardner, who does GLF believe is the true Green Lantern? These questions, and many more will finally be answered!
Very funny , just thought I would share . I'd buy the Green Lantern fan shoot .

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Allied Forces

Mark Briscoe vs. Mike Mondo

Daizee Haze vs. Lady JoJo ¾*

Trial Series Match #1

Andy “Right Leg” Ridge vs. Colt Cabana

Kevin Steen and Steve Corino vs. Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole **¼

Ricky Reyes vs. The Metal Master DUD

Jay Briscoe vs. Rhett Titus **½

Homicide vs. Kenny King

ROH World Tag Team Title Match
The Kings of Wrestling vs. Davey Richards and Christopher Daniels ****-****¼

* Steenorino/ColeReilly was fun though a little slow early on

* Please no more Ricky Reyes in ROH. The guy is an absoloute bore to watch and I couldn't even stay awake for his match

* The main event was great, as great as expected really. I was surprised at how well Daniels and Richards worked as a team, and the mis-communication between thw two that lead to the KOW's victory was done in an expected, yet good way.

* If it wasn't for the main event, this would of probably been one of the least enjoyable ROH shows I've ever seen. It's no wonder they packaged the Joe/Punk trilogy along with the show

He pretty clearly tapped out right away in full view of the camera.
