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.
