Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Just finished watching PWG's BOLA from this year and I have to concur with what had already been said about it being an awesome show and easily the best indy offering of the year.
Mack/Hero was a great opener that made Willie look like a beast despite the backslide finish.
Finlay/Steen was all kinds of cool but had a weird pacing to it. I'd love to see a rematch between those two one day when they really can just beat the shit out of each other.
Generico/Claudio was sen-FUCKING-sational. Just ridiculous amounts of athleticism on display here and both of these guys are on top of their game right down. They are probably my favourite novelty act in wrestling. When it comes to Claudio and Generico, they don't need an angle, they don't need a feud, they will just blow your mind with what they're capable of. Brilliant.
Eddie/Roddy was another great addition to what has been a tremendous series so far this year. I don't care what anyone else says because it's just so blatant that people are hating on Eddie because it's the cool thing to do right now. No other reason at all. Saying he's a bad wrestler is just fucking foolish. A step down from MM and SoH, but still good.
RockNES/Dynasty was a fun little sprint, and the two semi final matches were obviously about saving energy for the final, so they were kind of throwaway comedy-fests. A bit disappointing, but I understand.
Bucks/Kings was good too. These teams could do MUCH better, but it was a Young Bucks match, so it was obviously fun as hell. Watching them bump for Hero and Claudio was brilliant. It reminded me of the good old days when great heel teams like Tully & Arn, the Freebirds and the Midnight Express would bump like fucking lunatics for Hawk & Animal. You just can't beat that shit.
And the final. It was great. The crowd was sensational in this one, and both guys are experts at selling their cross-brand feud. Nowhere near their Final Battle encounter, but that still means it's an epic, epic match. Personally I think it's the best BOLA final ever, beating out Hero/Ki and Omega/Strong.
There's no way Steen Wolf will be better than this. Just ... no way....
