Yeah, I'll steer away from the later ones. No praise thus no buy for now.
I think that was NOTB. I had fun with some of the matches such as Generico vs Black, Team Work vs Nigel/Claudio, and even Necro vs Jacobs.
I could see overkill. I love both teams, but it going a touch over what was needed wouldn't shock me. I'll probably be a fan. I really think I'll get Tag Wars or Return Engagement due to the good reccomendations.
Survival of the Fittest always seemed like they were entertaining shows. Chuck that in a year that I loved and it almost can be a lock.
Like I said, I'll figure what I want soon. Hopefully whatever I don't get will be there the next time I order.
Tag wars 08 is a very good show. Yeh the main was slight overkill but it's still an easy 4 star match. You alseo have briscoes/Aries and Ibushi which I loved personally. Also steenerico/Nigel and claudio is very good and it also has my favorite Joey Matthews match with Jigsaw, really fun match.
I'll have to press my luck and see if it is available next time. I went with Breakout and Fifth Year Festival: Dayton. Breakout was too appealing to pass up and FYF was due to me wanting to expanding my collection of 2007 shows and the Morishima title reign.
Stalemate, Tag Wars 08, and Return Engagement will hopefully still be there. Plus knowing how good they sound, that will make paying full price that much more bearable. Deals like this made me wish they were always around. Look how much I scored tonight for example. Love it.
I'm lookin to make an ROH order as well. I'm definitely goin for Stalemante, SOTF 2005, Tag Wars 2006, & Respect is Earned II. But I'm torn between another two, Night of the Butcher II and Battle For Supremacy.
Night of the Butcher II has two very interesting looking title matches in Hero/Stevens for the FIP World Title and Albright/Shiozaki for the NWA World Title. Plus a gauntlet match with Roddy. Looks hella fun to me, but has anyone watched it recently?
Battle For Supremacy's main event doesn't do much for me, I imagine it could be an entertaining old school type match, but I'm really intrigued by Hero/Strong & Danielson/Stevens. Plus Joey Matthews is a great tag wrestler so his match w/Jacobs vs. Steenerico could be good. Get it or no?
I've seen Night of the Butcher II. Good show. Which almost begs the question as to why I didn't get it. Maybe because I've seen it. Nonetheless, can't go wrong with it, imo.
Only saw Strong vs Hero from Battle For Supremacy and it was a quality match as expected. ***3/4 on the last watch. Don't know how much that will steer you towards the entire show, but it's some input for you.
