I remember seeing myself in the crowd for a second or two but its been so long since i've seen the show (I let my buddy I went with borrow it a while back and keep forgetting to get it back from him and I hardly see him these days) I wouldn't know where to look. I was by the table which got destroyed during the Albright/Pearce vs Cide/Cabana match because I picked up Cide's bandana and took it.

I'm on the back of Epic Encounter 2 though in the backround of the Matt Sydal picture, but i'm kind of blurry. Kinda marked out when I got the show and saw that.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

A New Level


Manhattan Mayhem III

Motor City Madness 2009

Respect Is Earned II

Return Engagement

Tag Wars 2006

Take No Prisoners

That's my order. Couple of 'em are for a family member who wants to get into ROH, the rest to add to my collection.

I guess SBG are clean to get stock cleared out, so can't complain. I wonder whether they'd reprint some classic shows from the past once on TV, do it at a good deal and I'd imagine you'd get quite a few buys.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Been watching ROH SoCal Showdown II today and want to weigh in on TJ Perkins vs Davey Richards. I think I may have set my expectations too high on this one since they are both two of my favorite performers and I have seen it ranked highly on here, but I think I can only go as high as ***3/4 on it. Still a very good match, and a rewatch will certainly be in order since my lackluster mood today may very well account for why I was not as into it as I had hoped.

I then took a break from that show and just watched CM Punk vs Austin Aries from Weekend of Thunder Night One...and I just have to say how much I would kill to see these two go at it today, as they are two of the best in the world right now.

Their match at Death Before Dishonor III is better.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I felt somewhat similar on Richards/Perkins. I enjoyed it, and it was a great match but I definitely set my expectations a little too high.

ROH SoCal Showdown II

The Bravado Brothers vs. Cedric Alexander and Caleb Konley *

Colt Cabana vs. Jay Briscoe *

The All Night Express vs. The Cutler Brothers **

Davey Richards vs. TJ Perkins ***-****

ROH World TV Title Match

Christopher Daniels vs. Mark Briscoe ***

Non Title Rematch

The Kings of Wrestling vs. Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas ***

ROH World Title Match

Roderick Strong vs. El Generico ****

* Personally thought the Cutlers looked terrible. First time I've watched them in a good while but they looked really unimpressive.

* Davey/TJP was great. As I said above, I set my expectations a little high as I was disappointed and expected more but I'm not taking anything away from what was a great match.

* Daniels/Briscoe was one of the better singles Mark Briscoe matches I've seen. Very enjoyable throughout.

* KOW/Haas and Benjamin was probably the weakest of the three matches for me. Though I still need to rewatch the third match (was there live), this felt quite awkward early on and you could spot a good few mistakes (mostly involving Shelton). The last few minutes were pretty enjoyable though.

* Really enjoyed Strong/Generico. Crowd was really into it (something Generico tends to do best), and even bought into Generico possibily winning at the end. MOTN for me.

* Overall I couldn't get into much with the first few matches but from Davey/TJP onwards, it's a pretty enjoyable show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

That's very interesting to hear the above thoughts on Perkins/Richards from Socal Showdown II. I heard good things from live reports but managed to kinda stay away from reviews of the DVD, so when it came to watching it I was blown away. I went ****1/2 and it's my #4 MOTY. From the awesome opening MMA-esque segment, to some terrific mat exchanges, this had everything and was just an all-around hard fought contest. Davey didn't rely on his tired shtick either, I'd say Perkins brought out his innovative side. Big thumbs up from me, I had no issues with it.

Less than 1hr left on some of the auctions that are finishing today.

The following are now up too...

ROH 'Straight Shootin' with Ron Killings'
Rare. Long time OOP.

Kayfabe Commentaries 'Guest Booker with Mike Graham'
If you're interested in the old Florida territories or a fan of any of the bookers that were influenced by Eddie Graham (everyone good), it's worth a look.
