So I need some help deciding on where the rest of my funds should go. Today I took advantage of the Smart Mark sale, and the DGUSA sale to get caught up, but I'm not sure if I should:
A.) Get 70/30, and All Star Weekend 3 from ROH to fill in the last of the holes in my PWG collection.
B.) Buy a few random indy shows from RF at 30% off
C.) Hold out until Monday and see what highspots is going to offer for cyber monday.

Watched the 2 most recent NEW shows today and I really enjoyed them given that they have a reputation for "phone it in supercard" type promotion. Talked about the 2 Lawler matches in the MOTYC thread but there was also some good, enjoyable matches on the 2 shows too. Both Finlay matches vs Ciampa and Konley were good, with flashes of greatness. Konley had a really good opener with Mike Bennett too thanks to a super hot crowd. Probably the most enjoyable Bennett match I've watched along with his matches with Corino. Dreamer vs Robinson from the 2nd night given it was a Tommy Dreamer match in 2011. Robinson looked a really good basic old school heel. KOSLOV of all people had a fucking awesome squash match in which he showed more wrestling ability than he did during his entire WWE run. He has a super arm drag. Mickie James and some chick named Alexxis (who has a stunning ass) had a match on both shows which were basically the same but they were both good, 2nd being the better flowing one.

Got me thinking as I've been on a kick of watching more minor Indy shows this month that the majority of them aren't really any worse than ROH shows, a good chunk being better than your normal ROH show like Battle Royale Cup and the IPW Anniversary Show. Undercards are lacking on most of them but generally speaking I've got at least one match out of each of them that has been great and I've really liked. Can't say that for the majority of ROH DVD shows this year.

Just probably made my biggest order ever with the ROH Black Friday Sale and got:

ROH Only The Strong Survive
ROH 9th Anniversary Show
ROH Defy or Deny
ROH Supercard of Honor VI

PWG DDT 2011
PWG Card Subject to Change 3
PWG All Star Weekend 8 Night 2

Really pumped to watch some 2011 PWG was going to get BOLA 2011 but it was sold out but still happy with what I got even if Card Subject to Change 3 looks out of place I really wanted to see Mack vs Roddy, Claudio vs. Ryan and Generico & Ricochet vs. The Young Bucks. I was almost tempted to get all PWG but couldn't find enough to make a whole order.

I'll agree with you about minor Indy shows being good but the major difference to me in most of the shows is that ROH's worst worker is still a hell of a lot better then most of the minor Indies worst workers that I watch.

I'd still rather watch a really shitty botch machine for six minutes than Haas and Benjamin vs. the Briscoes for 40.

Have to agree w/Jawbreaker. ROH has two problems right now: long drawn out matches and not a real interesting roster pardon the ones that work elsewhere like Generico. (ANX being the real exception) I mean not every main event has to go 30+ minutes. Seriously guys.

I love me a nice long epic main event but that's something I've always been slightly bothered about with ROH. I feel like they could cut some of their matches a bit short and they'd end up better in the long run.

Any chance of uploading the Mickie matches?

Ziggler/Punk showed from last week that shorter can sometimes, a lot of times, be better. CHIKARA works by the same philosophy. It does not have many mega timed matches, but the shorter ones can sometimes be the best anyway.

Ziggler/Punk however may have ruled because they are two of the best all-round talents the WWE has got.

And on the subject of Ziggler/Punk. ***3/4 for me. My current TV MOTY.

Haven't had a chance to watch much wrestling the last couple of months but Ziggler/Punk was certainly the best match I've seen in a few months.

Quite happy that I have no money at the moment as I'd probably spend anything I've got during the Black Friday sales (on DVDs I won't be watching for ages).
