That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Some of those live reports also said that the first three matches were decent to ok.

THEY LIED.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Mark's match was a dull one-sided fight, the SDR even moreso and it went to long, and also makes you wonder why they're bothering at all with her on the card if she's not going to do a competitive match and whoever wrote the report that said that Elgin is a future main-eventer in ROH is out of their damn mind. Between the botches and the guys involved it was terrible.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Watched SOTF tonight. Some quick thoughts:

- Edwards vs. Hero should definitely be watched. MOTN IIRC. Edwards looks like a world-beater when he's in the ring with guys like Hero. A completely different wrestler to when he's in there with guys like Dutt/Daivari.
- Michael Elgin really impressed me. I'd seen bits and bobs on youtube, before he came into ROH and didn't get what people saw in him but he carried himself with a real presence in the trios match. He looks like the kind of guy that will make a good tag team specialist, like a poor man's Anderson family member...if you will.
- Zach Gowen had a pretty good showing too. He has a bizarre moveset. He's managed to turn his one-leggedness into an advantage in that respect.
- Roddy just fades into the background sometimes, in matches like this. No charisma at all.
- Martini had the shiniest sunglasses ever in his pre-tape.
- ANX were pushed hard in this show. Big wins and were the main focus of the finals match.
- Kyle O'Reilly was awesome again and his match with Steen was another of Steen's shock great matches from the past year, from outside of his main feud. It's testament to how good of a worker Steen is that he can deliver so well despite being in terrible shape.
- The Steen-Generico angle was furthered.
- Grizzly Redwood had another good effort.
- Overall, the whole show hung together and one match flowed into the next, in the way that tournaments should, but it was just OK tbh. Pretty underwhelmed with it really. Was expecting more. Edwards getting hurt didn't help things. Crowd was pretty shit to boot. It was mostly the younger guys that delivered. The Nigel DVD bundled with it should make the release more tempting though, especially for new fans.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Mochizuki is cool,
COD was f`n great, the whole show everything was very fun to watch as most of the COD shows are, many surprises, but the main event sucked big time, lots of botches(even if there wasnt any botches the match would still horrible anyways), not much glass, Vortekz brought a weedwhacker and NO ONE used it, very pointless and i have to say this was the worst cage of death match since Wifebeater vs Pain at COD 3.

Hero/Edwards was good, but not something i'd say to go out of your way to watch. One of the better matches on this show.

Yeah, this was a entertaining show that flowed, however the quality of matches was weak. I was there live, and i understand why the crowd appeared like shit. I thought considering for the action in the ring, the crowd was pretty into the show. I really think Edwards should have just sat out on the main event, and had Hero advance or something.

I didn't even think there was a match worth 3.5 stars on this show. Right up there with Gold Rush, Civil Wafare, Pick your poison and Champions Challenge for worst show of the year. Even a bad ROH show, is still enjoyable though.

Yeah Edwards should have had to sit out and Hero take his spot only for them to have a rematch later with the title shot on the line.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

In regards to Fate of an Angel II, I have a somewhat controversial review on the roh boards (because I didn't drink the kool-aid) under the name SxECanadianFanSxE.

I ended up giving it a 56/100 and saying it was quite mediocre.
