Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

People who still think Bennett is bad need to watch his matches with Generico (Gateway) and Edwards (SOTF). He was great and those matches were great. The Prodigy is a guy who knows how to incorporate his persona into matches. I really appreciate that. I mean, love him or hate him, but saying he's bad is bullshit, IMO... It's "Cena can't wrestle" crap of Indys, if you ask me.

Oh, and Generico vs. Corino from SOTF was a great, great match. The storytelling was off the charts and really personal. Those guys are true wrestling generals. It's not a MOTYC, but it's one of the most enjoyable ROH matches in 2011.

That is why it's called organized crime.

I'll have to see those to see if you're correct on those, but based on what he's done so far besides those match it's at least fair to say that Bennett is fit for ROH style-matches at least. Besides Bennett's matches with Cole and one with Corino they've been boring wastes of time. He's one of those guys who I think would probably do better in WWE then ROH just because of the style differences and what the fans expect and want. He's got his character down outside the ring but once the bell rings unless he's in with a guy that can get the crowd firmly behind him it's a chore to sit though his matches.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I've enjoyed his matches with Lethal. While nothing special I think they've all been solid matches especially for TV

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The Generico match from Gateway Of Honor is a really good match, granted it's El freakin' Generico in there with Bennett, but he puts on a great heel performance.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The SOTF final was awesome and once it got down to Elgin/O'Reily it was incredible. Go out of your way to see at least the last portion with Elgin/O'Reily. Match as a whole around ****1/4

The match was a mindless spotfest right until Elgin/O'Reilly. Elgin/O'Reilly mini-match was fantastic and dramatic, but some shitty and illogical stuff happened before that, when all 6 guys were there - like that double missile dropkick (from Eddie and Kyle), and especially Elgin's top buckle moonsault on 5(!) guys. I hate moves like that, they're too fake and illogical, completely business exposing, and ruin matches from me, in terms of ratings and overall quality. I mean, those 5 guys just standing there together waiting for Elgin to jump on them, how stupid is that? I hate spots like that in wrestling, it's impossible to suspend your disbelief, no matter how hard you try.

To sum up, I'm not hating, I really liked the match, even with low rating (*1/4), it was like one of those movies that you know are stupid and illogical, but you still enjoy them.

i don't know how these go together and this is just me nitpicking (not really at you but people who use the term "business exposing") but if you try to think logical about wrestling then you'll forgo any disbelief you try to have because it's all illogical and business exposing.
