Same here Platt. I probably never need to buy another wrestling DVD ever again.

This one surprised me, as it's not as hyped as Seven or DDT4 2009.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Finally caught up with all my ROH DVD's. 26 shows in about a month and a half.

Now I can concentrate on my two PWG DVD's and sets from Seabs.

ROH Revolution : Canada

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Kyle O’Reilly ***

Grudge Match
Steve Corino vs. Mike Bennett **¼

Double Danger Scramble Match

Rhett Titus vs. Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin vs. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Andy Ridge vs. Grizzly Redwood ***¼-***½

Davey Richards vs. Kenny King ***

In Memory of “Sweet & Sour” Larry Sweeney

Delirious vs. Colt Cabana N/R

Non-Title Match

Christopher Daniels vs. El Generico **¾

ROH World Tag Team Title Match

Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas vs. Jay and Mark Briscoe **½

ROH World Title Match

Eddie Edwards vs. Chris Hero ****½


* Claudio/O'Reilly was the perfectly fun opener you'd expect from the two (especially O'Reilly).

* The scramble match was AWESOME. So much fun and Elgin came out of it looking like an absolute beast. A match like this is certainly something ROH has been missing for awhile now.

* Richards/King was okay but at the same time a big disappointment for me, as I was actually quite a big fan of their match from The Big Bang. Oh and the ending....what a mess. Davey looked like a right prick walking off like that.

* Delirious/Cabana is just what you would expect really. Fun little tribute match and the strut-off was pretty great.

* Daniels/Generico was pretty basic, doesn't touch their BITW match.

* Haas and Benjamin/Briscoes was even worse then their 9AS match. The only thing that was better at all was the fact the Briscoes were heels.

* Edwards/Hero is up there as one of my favourite matches this year. Hero's work on Eddie's arm (utilising his elbows was pretty cool) and Eddie's selling went really well together.

* Despite the disappointing Davey/King and Daniels/Generico matches and the meh tag title match, the show overall was a hell of a lot better then the previous night.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Refreshing to see more people be really disappointed by Benjamin and Haas this year in ROH. I'd definitely like to see more of them Double Danger Scrambles too but with less jobbers in them like Ridge.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Haas and Benjamin have been the most lackluster ROH tag team champions in I don't know how long.

Yep, they wrestle in a slo-mo charisma vacuum.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well you have to have a couple of jobbers in there to eat the pins, and with the thinness of the roster it's either guys like Ridge and Grizz or random local talent if they do the Double Danger Scramble again.

And WGTT/Generico and Colt didn't really help Haas and Benjamin's run, Shelton did look off down the stretch and before then the match wasn't really much to write about. And they took out Shelton apologizing to the fans afterwards.

I didn't a few weeks back. But lately i've been watching some PWG from 2010 (just finished BOLA 2010), i've watched EVOLVE 1 & 2 the past couple of days, but still have 4 more shows of theirs to watch. Plus I have Dragon Gate USA DVD's I need to watch (I finished watching the Canada debut shows a couple of days ago) and even though i'm not upto date with ROH (i'm like upto the 9th anniversary show), I still need to watch a few more 2011 shows. Oddly enough, I have a ton of unwatched FIP DVD's too.
