A really sad note.

And about CHIKARA, I don't hate it, actually it's quite possible I like it, but I can't follow it because it last bored.

Then again some of the more ridiculous and over the top storylines would probably wear thin for me tbh over time, I remember being tempted into watching the debut of Sinn Bohdi and finding it incredibly hard to get over the content of the promo talking about some magic 'Eye of ...'.

So yeah in small doses its a perfectly fine bit of entertainment that appeals to a niche fanbase and can be very fun, but it isn't the sort of promotion I could follow consistently over time just because of the sheer amount of storylines and characters that I might find too over the top and distracting to properly concentrate on.
Eye of Tyr would be what its called and if you had actually followed Chikara, the whole Eye of Tyr thing actually makes sense.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I didn't say it didn't make sense, just that some of the content and words in the promo exchange between both was a bit hard to sit through because it just sounded very over the top, I have no doubt it made more sense to someone with more knowledge of the feud and company but I was just pointing out the content of the promo as the sort of thing that would be hard for me to follow for a sustained period of time.

I did love reading up the Hero/Quack feud revolving around the Chikara Special though, that seemed a great feud.

This show legitimately drained the life out of me.. So dull so frequently.
EVOLVE has so much potential, but something about their show structure just does not work for me. The matches almost always feel rushed. Plus, it is obvious Gabe cares very little about it in comparison to DGUSA. Then you have the fact that every major name they bring in leaves (Richards, Hero, castagnoli, Danielson, Aries, Jacobs) so then they have to forget all they built up with those guys (Jacobs was right behind the wins leaders, Hero vs Allen who also stopped being booked). Sure they have done a decent job of building up Gargano and Taylor as the top guys, but even their characters in EVOLVE seem sucky in comparison to them everywhere else. Maybe it is just because I feel Larry Dallas has no place in EVOLVE.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Chikara is awesome for the simple fact that its pretty much the only place you can watch Eddie Kingston these days. His feud with the BDK/Claudio was all classy stuff. Good showings with Generico and Tozawa don't hurt either.

Then you've probably seen his best singles match.

This probably isn't much use but basically his entire PWG run is worth watching although there's an odd match or two which is skippable. The 2 Hero matches are the best singles matches by some distance. Most of his best stuff is in tags though, even his PWG run. Dragon Gate is nearly all tags and pre PWG he wasn't in a position to have great singles matches and since he's returned there's only really the SHINGO match from the Kobe PPV that I'd recommend.

I can't remember if Tozawa/Sabre ended up happening on the Magnum Pro show where they were both in a tournament together and both got to the semis. I know Sabre won but I can't remember if it was him or the other guy who beat Tozawa. Don't think it happened actually. Tried looking for results of it a month or so back but it's a shitty Indy fed that can't set up a proper website and keep updating it.

Great news if it means him coming in more permanently and becoming more than a touring exhibition guy. Loads of guys on the roster who can work some really great 10 minute midcard matches with. Perfect style for TV too. TJ/O'Reilly needs to be on the next TV tapings as an undercard match.
