Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

You should include London/Generico vs. Steen/Kendrick as a bonus.

PWG Uncanny X-Mas

I love Christmas, PWG, and I got new headphones as well as a new laptop. Seems like a pretty obvious choice on what I should do.

Ronin And Human Tornado vs. Excalibur and Top Gun Talwar
Pretty damn funny. Whether it be Tornado luring Top Gun out of the ring with some food from Chipolte or Top Gun running outside the building and sneaking in on the other side. Excalibur's general annoyance with his partner the whole time was a nice dynamic. I love Tornado at this stage. Watching him get pissed off at the antics of opponents and just pimp slapping them is always a blast. Oh and Ronin was in the match too... Nothing against him, he's a pretty solid worker I guess but he really didn't have the personality to be in this match.

While it was funny the action itself was really pretty average. A pretty basic match structure with Tornado being isolated most of the match and plenty of the usual cool indy moves. Good enough match however.

Tony Stradlin vs. Christopher Daniels
Now you might not be too familar with Tony Stradlin and I will quote Colt Cabana on commentary to explain it, "He's like a combination of Billy Kidman and Scott Baio"

This actually ended up being a pretty decent match and it really was all because of the stipulation where Stradlin was fired if he lost. I would have been bored if he was getting his ass kicked the whole time but it worked here but it furthered the story. You got the impression that Stradlin was out of his league in PWG. He would get in a little bit of offense but it always seemed that Daniels would soon end up in control of the match. The ending worked very well. Nothing too great but a solid match.

Chris Hero vs. Austin Aries
I'm surprised at how long this ended up being. For the third match on the card this seemed to be far too long. Good match though. Really good technical wrestling all throughout and some good spots thrown in to break things up. I liked the ending too because it kept both guys looking strong. It was more of bad luck than anything that Aries ending up tapping out.

Still would have liked this 5 minutes shorter or so but it was still a very good match that was entertaining the entire time.

El Generico and Kevin Steen vs. Quicksilver and Scorpio Sky
After seeing Steen and Generico nearly kill each other it was nice to see them team together in their younger days. I loved the dynamic they had going at the time with Steen being a pure heel and Generico being a face.

The match itself was very entertaining, good job of Generico by teasing the brain buster multiple times and when he hit finally it the move really meant something. Maybe a little more of a spotfest than it had to be but fun to watch none the less.

PWG World Championship Match:
Super Dragon(c) vs. Johnny Storm
This match could have been amazing. They executed so many moves perfectly and Super Dragon played the badass unstoppable monster really well. Now what stopped this match from being so damn good? Selling. All of the awesome mat work that we saw early on in the match didn't mean anything because Storm and Dragon didn't make it mean anything. Storm needed some type of focus on his offense instead of just random big moves and trying to be more of a badass than Super Dragon.

It was still a very good and enjoyable match, much better than I was expecting. A good David vs. Goliath type match that was easy to watch. It just could have been great.

Spanky vs. Colth Cabana
Very weird match. I liked it but it was just odd that they went from a basic technical match to more of a comedy match at the end. Kind of the opposite way that I would have expected it to go but I can't complain. They didn't blow me away in the ring at all but these guys are good enough that they were able to execute all their moves very well. Solid beginning and the ending sequence was pretty funny.

PWG World Tag Team Championship Match:

Chris Bosh and Scott Lost (c) vs. Rocky Romero and Rickey Reyes
You've got to love the fact that the Pit-Bulls just hate Bosh. They really just beat the shit out of him but he had it coming for calling them filthy Mexicans before the match got underway. In fact a good portion of this match was just Bosh getting beat up. It was entertaining though. To Bosh's credit he sold the fact that he was nearly killed by the Pit-Bulls very well. I loved then Lost went to make a hot tag but Bosh looked like he was barley conscious as he got into the ring.

So I've seen a lot of indy wrestling and I thought I had this one figured out before it ended. It seemed that they were building for what I was hoping would be an awesome finishing sequence. We never got there and the match ended with a DQ finisher just as it was getting to that next level. What we got was very well done though and the plus side to the finsish was that it reminded me that PWG used to have storylines. To sum it all up, I enjoyed a racist Chris Bosh getting stiffed by angry Cubans.

Samoa Joe vs. Bryan Danielson
Just crisp and clean wrestling from 2 of the best indy wrestlers at the time this match took place. Everything they did looked good and they really nailed the main event feel that this match was supposed to have. I liked the pace of the match that wasn't too slow but they never went to the overkill mode but still had a good finishing stretch.

Hands down the best match on the card and I can't say I was surprised by this. Probably the only match that I can say anyone should really go out of their way to see but that being said they have had better matches.

I really can't say that this was all that great of a show. Plenty of stand alone good matches but this was a chore to watch at times. It just seemed that so many of this matches just dragged on too much. Far too many matches going 15 minutes when 10 would have been fine.

I also want to comment on how much indy wrestling has changed. This show was 6 years old, which really isn't that long but the product was so different then the stuff that we get today. A lot of it had to do with the finishes. It might be that I'm so used to the awesome finishing sequences we get today but I felt unsatisfied with the way most of the matches ended. I think that was a mix of some of the finishes just not being that good and me being used to how indy matches end today.

That is why it's called organized crime.
