Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well I was trying to put off ordering any new DVDs for my collection since my cashflow has slowed down a bit and I have far too many DVDs already in my collection that are unwatched, but thanks to these reviews I just could not help ordering in ASW8. I follow too many companies! But when PWG DVDs come in my door, they are always pushed right to the top of the watch pile! Looking forward to watching the performances of Willie Mack and RockNES Monsters especially as I believe used right and if they work hard they could be the future of PWG, the next big homegrown stars.

They did say their ring canvas and logo were changing, but that's all I know of. I'm hoping for a new entrance setup other than just a black curtain.

A plea from Corino...

To ROH Officials, fans, talent, and staff:

My name is Steve Corino and I am an Evil person.

I have been this way for 17 years. But as you have seen over the last eight months, I have done my very best to change. It is not easy. Being Evil was a way a life for me. It was easy, fun, and I was good at it. A little too good.

Fans and officials have heard me ask for forgiveness on countless Newswires and DVD releases. This is very genuine. Like I said in Richmond this past January, I woke up the day after Final Battle and realized that this was no way to live my life.

I have accomplished so much in professional wrestling but my legacy will always be tarnished due to bad decisions I have made. Iíll never be looked up to like the boys and fans look up to Davey Richards, El Generico, or Eddie Edwards. These are men of Honor.

In May, I revealed my sponsor to the ROH world. Jimmy Jacobs, who has been a coach and friend to me and no stranger to demons, came to me when I was the most down. With his help I showed the fans that I was sincere. And I thanked ROH for letting him appear with me at Best In The World in New York City.

You donít get to be successful for so long in this industry without being smart. I knew that Best In The World wasnít about Steve Corino. It was about Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, El Generico, The Kings Of Wrestling, Wrestlingís Greatest Tag Team, and others. I knew my role. But I also had something to prove. I pushed the envelope when I asked the man whoís name can not be mentioned to come to New York. And for that I am sorry.

Never in my wildest imagination would I think this despicable human being, a black smoke monster if you will, would turn the tables and manipulate me. But I can only blame myself. I made him into what he is. And for that I am sorry.

The next era of Ring Of Honor begins in one week. I want to be a part of it. Jimmy Jacobs wants to be a part of it. Our loyalty is to ROH and to continue our rehabilitation. I understand if the new owners, Jim Cornette, and the fans donít want to trust us. But redemption and recovery has many steps. Let us show the world that not only we can be trusted, but we can thrive.

Our fate is in ROHís hands. We will accept our fate.

- Steve Corino

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG 1.21 Gigawatts

Nemesis vs. Brandon Bonham

The only thing that I really enjoyed about this was that the fans just chanted, "New Guy" at Bonham because they didn't know his name or just found it funny to call him that. There were a couple of cool moves as well but nothing all that incredible really.

Candice LaRae vs. Lufisto

Really good match. Lufisto just beat the hell out of Candice for most of the match but Candice kept fighting. It was a really good underdog effort from her. I was really impressed with Lufisto as well. Awesome 10 minute or so Women's match.

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero

This was right after Claudio turned on Hero and sided with Human Tornado in their feud with each other. I got the feeling that they didn't like each other but this was lacking a more hard fought segment. There was no back and forth it was just rotating control segments. Still a good match but I've seen a lot better from these when they wrestle each other.

PWG Tag Team Championship Match:

The Dynasty(c) w/Jade Chung vs. Kevin Steen and El Generico

I liked that Super Dragon randomly ran in and gave Jade Chung a Burning Hammer for no apparent reason. The match itself was pretty good as well. Because the show is so short I think they had this go longer then it needed to be. Lengthy control segments by the returning face team was just kind of odd.

DDT4 Elimination Qualifier:

Scorpio Sky and Ronin vs. The Young Bucks vs. TKj Perkins and Hook Bomberry vs. Los Luchas

This wasn't a crazy spotfest like I thought it was going to be. They took a slower approach but it still pretty entertaining. I probably would have been happier if they had just done crazy stuff the while time but this was still decent.

Street Fight:
Chris Hero and Candice LaRae vs. Human Tornado and Lufisto

A slow, methodical, and hard hitting street fight. I loved it actually. The way that Human Tornado would attack Candice was done so well it was disturbing. Hero playing the underdog and doing whatever he could to protect Candice was awesome. This was a great match that really took the Hero/Tornado feud to the next level.

Post match was awesome too. Hero was ready to kill someone after everything went down. It got so out of hand that even Excalibur and Taro, who were on commentary, got involved to break up the ass kicking Candice was getting.

The show was less than 2 hours, had a few good matches and one great one. It's worth buying of you can get it in a $5 sale. In all honesty it's one of the few shows out there that I've watched straight through in one sitting in a very long time.
