Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

After like 3 years of being amazing, I think it is well past time that you should get on board.

I'd start with the beginning of this year. So much great stuff has happened.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm about an hour and 45 minutes away but I'm 99.9% sure I'll still be home in upstate New York on Christmas break when January 7th rolls around so not much of a chance that I'll make the show.

Chikarasaurus Rex: King of Sequel Night 1

12 Large Summit Match:

Jigsaw vs. Fire Ant

So we started with some of the technical lucha stuff that Chikara can do really well. Things got really interesting when Jigsaw started acting (I think) like his recently torn bicep was hurting. This wouldn't have been anything special if Fire Ant wasn't a face. He was put in this ethical dilemma where he had to decide if he was going to attack the arm or not. He wasn't aggressive or anything when Jigsaw first noticed the injury so you thought he might not go for it. Fire Ant just sort of tentatively worked the arm with a strike here and there on it but nothing sustained. And his odd strike or two were usually provoked from Jigsaw. As the match got closer to the end Fire Ant went after it only when he was ready to go for the win. Really good match and I was impressed with how Jigsaw sold the arm (or at the very least I was impressed how he wrestled with an injured arm).

Jakob Hammermeier vs. Gregory Iron

Jakob is insane and watching him get beat up by Iron was fun. It only lasted about 3 minutes and had a run in from UltraMantis Black so not really much of a match.

Adam Cole vs. Eddie Kingston

I love Adam Cole as a heel. From what I've seen of him he knows how to mix it up. For Chikara he was this over the top annoying heel but when he's in CZW it's all about the cockiness. For 7 minutes and change this was really good. Kingston has been selling his leg really well for the last year or so, his injured leg has essentially become part of his gimmick. Good stuff for the time it lasted.

F.I.S.T. vs. 3.Ole!

I liked this a lot. The opening minutes were pretty funny and when it got serious it developed into a really good match. The ending had less craziness that I expected but it still kept me on the edge of my seat not knowing who would get the win. Good stuff.

World of Sport Rules:
Johnny Saint vs. Johnny Kidd

This was really cool to see. I can't really say I've seen anything like this in wrestling since Johnny Saint last wrestled in Chikara. Some awesome technical wrestling with even more awesome counters. Aside from just great back and forth technical wrestling I thought they had a really nice story thrown in there with Kidd not being able to keep any hold on Saint for very long. It's always refreshing to see something different in a wrestling ring and this was certainly different. There would a couple holds that didn't look like they did anything and a few escapes had me scratching my head but for the most part this was great from bell to bell. Nothing on the top rope and maybe one strike the whole match, yet it kept me entertained for over 15 minutes. Probably overrating it because the style is new to me in all honesty.

Sara Del Rey, Daizee Haze & Makoto vs. Portia Perez, Shimoda & Fujimoto

Makoto seems to be the only person that was a babyface. Everyone else seemed to wrestle like heels. The match literally went from The BDK team dominating one minute to the other team being in control the next. It was a good match and all but they probably should have figured out the heel/face alignments in a more effective way.

Green Ant vs. Tursas

Really good David vs. Goliath match. Surprised at how long it went as well, I really didn't think Tursas was capable of working a 15 miunute plus match but he proved me wrong here. I didn't think they needed to have any interference in this but it didn't really bother me too much. I would be all for seeing a another match between these two.

12 Large Summit:
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Mike Quackenbush

I liked it but it was a little too one sided for my liking. Claduio was in control of things for a vast majoarity of the match and he only had his comeback going for a few seconds before the match ended. I love a good comeback sequence followed by a few minutes (at the very least) when you don't know who's going to win the match. Good but I was expecting more from these two.

Overall this is a good show. There are a lot of different styles on the same card and it's easy to sit through. Nothing mind blowing but a card where every match is at least good is something that's worth seeing.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

fuck yeah I've been waiting for this forever
just wish they could have done it as the night before Final Battle, not sure if I'm still on vacation on the 7th. I think classes might start back up on the 4th.

also the Du Burns arena is in a pretty decent neighborhood, which is pretty hard to do when you want to run in Baltimore. but it's ten minutes from my parents' house so that's awesome. the best part is this means that Baltimore will hopefully become a regular stop so I can see shows there in the summer.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

If you have the Honor Take Center Stage shows you might actually be able to see me do that on camera. I believe I was sitting across from the hard came for Day 2 and I was only 5 rows from the floor. so the camera seemed to be pointed right at me. And in the WGTT/Wolves main event I started to fall asleep. In my defense the show started at noon and I was up late from being at the ROH show the night before.

I think it's great that ROH is running in new markets now. It can only help them if they can draw a decent crowd to the shows. I'm not too worried about any of the markets they try to run in cities like Baltimore but it's some of the really out of the way markets that they broadcast their show on that have me worried about attendance and atmosphere.
