Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
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.
