This is so true. Gibson was brilliant and was really easy to get behind and fantastic in the ring at pretty much everything.

Also I can't believe someone compared him to Devon Moore! Completely different league.

This. I loved every match he was in when he was with ROH. Even the one against TJP/Puma.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

TaylorFitz, jesus christ you need to go watch some Gibson! Now I'm not gonna lie, I haven't seen as much as I'd like to, but what I have seen is fantastic. Go watch all of these immediately:

vs. Black Tiger (Manhattan Mayhem) ****
vs. Homicide (The Future is Now) ***3/4
vs. Samoa Joe (New Frontiers) ***1/2+

Then there's his classics with Aries, Strong, & Danielson. He had a pretty brilliant year in '05.

The first Spanky match, man. Kendrick was just as good that year.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Kendrick and Gibson were on it in 2005. God do I love Gibson's ROH run.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Also, the 4 way match where Gibson won the belt was so awesome, and has one of the best 'go to back because iunjured but come back later in pain to continue match' spots EVER. Basically what Benjamin tried to do at FB but obviously 1000000x better.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Gibson's work in New Japan was pretty awesome . We got to see him work heel outside of WWE as a memeber of the heel CTU faction with Gedo,Jado and Jushin Liger. I rememvber it being great anyway.

His match with Black Tiger was outstanding from what I remember , I recall liking it a lot more than others. Pretty horrible show overall though.

It's hard to believe that 4 way match for the title went over 50 minutes,awesome stuff. People usually forgot Gibson when it comes to mentioning great ROH matches. The 4 way , the match where he dropped the belt to Danielson and his match with Roderick are all ****1/2 stars for me. He has a heap of ****+ matches too , not just in ROH either.

2005 was such a great year for ROH thinking of it now.
