Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wow was my english ever bad in my last post. haha.

Final Battle 2010 was what put me over the edge to go back and start purchasing the old ROH PPV's. I purchased the ippv and I missed the first two matches cause I got stuck at work, but I really enjoyed the rest of the card, and obviously the last two matches where just amazing.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Ah.

I started out watching a few shows here and there from various points in the company's history, and about a year ago started watching everything chronologically (while still keeping up with the current stuff). I'm about midway through 2005 right now and it's a lot of fun.

Also, though the weakest Fight Without Honor, Kingston-Hero is a fitting end to their ROH feud with an incredible spot that must be seen. The two huge surprises (Steen's heel turn, the return of KOW) are two of the most exciting moments in ROH history.

On the other hand, there isn't a single other outstanding match. Adam Pearce lost his mind when he booked the main event to go broadway, but he really screwed the pooch when he booked 8 other matches on the undercard. Here is a year-ending show that should have been a wrestling classic, but instead is an overbooked circus show.
Maff/Whitmer vs. the Carnage Crew
Jimmy Jacobs vs. Delirious
Homicide vs. Corino
Carnage Crew vs. Texas Wrestling Academy

were all much weaker FWHs than Hero/Kingston. And the Bucks and Steenerico never really feuded. Otherwise I agree with you.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Looking back I can't believe how badly Mick Foley was wasted in ROH. He could have done interesting things, but no, he put over Maff and Whitmer and had a feud with Samoa Joe that didn't make any sense.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Steamboat seemed like the only "special guest" who came in and did anything meaningful in the long run.

No I counted him as an active Roster member. Miss that guy, really enjoyed his stuff in ROH especially.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Yeah, I just finished watching Back to Basics and Gibson hasn't had a match yet that I'd rate below ***3/4. I knew he was good, but I didn't know he was this good. Same with Spanky. Those two collectively are the best things about ROH in the period I'm watching right now.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I think the worst singles match he might have had was either the one with Puma or the title match with Aries at Stalemate which was still pretty solid. His final match with Strong was AWESOME.
