That is why it's called organized crime.

ROH - Gateway To Honor


Tommaso Ciampa vs. Andy "Right Leg" Ridge - *1/2

Jay Briscoe vs. TJ Perkins - ***

Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs vs. The Bravado Brothers - **

Michael Elgin vs. Grizzly Redwood - *

ROH World Tag Team Title Match
Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas vs. Future Shock (Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly) - ***

Mia Yim vs. MsChif - *

Proving Ground
Jay Lethal vs. Mark Briscoe - **1/4

Mike Bennett vs. El Generico - **1/2

The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) vs. The All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) - ****

Definitely a shippable show unless you need to see Wolves/ANX, TJ/Jay and WGTT/FutureShock were both solid but nothing you need to rush to see and the rest of the card is dull at best. No reason the Elgin match was anything but a squash and Yim/MsChif didn’t click at all.



ROH - Survival Of The Fittest 2011


Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. The Bravado Brothers - *1/2

Kyle O’Reilly vs. Andy “Right Leg” Ridge - *1/2

Eddie Edwards vs. Mike Bennett - ***

Kenny King vs. Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin vs. Tommaso Ciampa - ***

Non-Tournament
Steve Corino vs. El Generico - **

Roderick Strong vs. Rhett Titus - **

Non-Tournament - Champions Challenge

Davey Richards and Jay Lethal vs. Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas - ***3/4

2011 Survival of the Fittest Final - Elimination Match
Jay Briscoe vs. Mark Briscoe vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Michael Elgin vs. Roderick Strong - ***1/2

Bonus Match - Winner Enters SOTF 2011

Grizzly Redwood vs. Andy "Right Leg" Ridge - *

Standard SOTF undercard with the two good qualifiers averaged out by two meh matches, the Briscoes extended squash and Kickapalooza 2011. The Champions’ Challenge was better then I thought it would be but the SOTF Finals were average until it came down to Elgin and O’Reilly

IWS - Scarred For Life 2007

- I got this in the Smart Mark Video Grab Bag a few weeks ago. I actually thought at first it was ISW but sadly its IWS.

1. Pornstar Juan vs Twiggy
**1/2

2. Jake Matthews vs Kevin Steen
**1/2

3. Justin White vs Jimmy Stone vs Jimmy K vs Stupefied
**1/4

4. SLI 2007 vs Above Standards
*
They hit stuff well and some good comedy but absolutely no reason as to why they were doing anything and nothing was built up.

5. Exess vs Steffany Sinclair
**1/2

6. Green Phantom/Sexxxy Eddy vs Hi5 vs Hardcore Ninjaz
**3/4

7. PCO vs Viking
*1/2

In short i can't recommend IWS at all. The production was pretty bad. Especially the commentary which was only mumbling. Couldn't understand anything they said.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Dragon Gate USA, Open The Golden Gate



Low Ki vs. BxB Hulk


Great dream match and opener. One word: STIFF! Some lethal kicks and balls-to-the-walls action, and the Double Stomp was sick. Low Ki was super over with the crowd. The Ki and Tozawa post-match staredown teased a potential clash. Great, great match!
Rating: ***3/4

Young Bucks vs. Chuck Taylor & Scorpio Sky

It's a damn shame that Rich Swann missed his flight (fuck!), but Scorpio did a good job in this match. Bucks' pre-match promos was funny. This was another great match, great tag action all around. The "TNA rejects" chant was
Rating: ***

Masato Yoshino vs. Naruki Doi

Speed Muscle collide! First time ever in America, and this match delivered, some very smart wrestling here, also some breathtaking counters with beautiful technique. Yet another great match, this was superb action and awesome storytelling.
Rating: ***3/4

Sami Callihan vs. A.R. Fox

In a pre-match promo, Fox demands adding the Tables stipulation on Anything Goes and shit is on! This was a sick match with great storytelling - hatred and natural intensity. You combine that with some SICK bumps, great crowd and smashing execution, and you have a legit MOTYC. These guys are awesome, especially Callihan. Another beautiful things is - this was only the first chapter.
Rating: ****

Jon Davis vs. Caleb Konley

The feed broke here. Well, at least it was during this match, but still - it sucks. I will rate this when I watch the replay.
Rating: N/A

PAC vs. Akira Tozawa

The feed is back, but the match is already in progress, which bugs me, of course. From what I've seen, this was another helluva match, but I won't rate it until I watch the replay next week. But this was ***1/2+, that's for sure.
Rating: N/A

The Spiked Mohicans vs. Masaaki Mochizuki & Jimmy Susumu (Tag Team Championship)

Fantastic main event, which just tells you how awesome this was because I thought the show peaked with PAC/Tozawa. The finishing stretch was batshit insane, but they stayed classy, which is very important. Insane back-and-forth sequences. The post match sutff with Blood Warriors and Low Ki was great too, and it set up Low Ki vs. Pretty Much Everyone. I loved this.
Rating: ****

Well, what can I say, the show was fucking great - two (probably 3, with PAC/Tozawa) MOTYCs, one great dream match and a shitload of great modern wrestling. Dragon Gate USA is pretty damn great, their shows are a lot of fun, even when mediocre.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I just watched the first few minutes of the Guerrilla Warfare Match between Super Dragon and Kevin Steen from Astonishing X-Mas and holy shit it looks brutal. Steen pushes Dragon into chairs from the crowd and even that looked stiff and like it legit hurt. Cant wait to watch the full match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I wasn't a massive fan of the Steen/Dragon match to be honest. Some of the spots were sick though.

Beyond Wrestling We Did It For The Hits

Team Beyond vs The Vancougars
***1/2

Jonny Mangue vs Pitboss
**1/2

Nasty Russ vs Jonah Block
***

Johnny Cockstrong vs Hailey Hatred
***3/4

Garden State Gods vs The Vancougars
***

Jonny Mangue vs Zane Silver
***

Chase Burnett vs Hailey Hatred
****+

Robby Kidd vs Donny Kidd vs Jonah Block vs Corvis Fear
***3/4

Davey Vega vs Zack Novak
*1/2

Team Beyond vs Garden State Gods
***

Overall:
Awesome show. The no fans concept is different but it works with them having all the wrestlers play the crowd as they can work the crowd as they want and you get some great reactions out of wrestlers pissing about and going nuts. Any show where you have a big fat guy ringside in a 50 year old beat up armchair is getting my money. They have a guy sat on top of stood up ladder in the corner filming the hard cam above the ring post too but it actually works fine. Commentary is brilliant and probably the best Indy commentary outside of PWG I've ever heard. The show has a great dojo exhibition feel to it with loads of great wrestling in a tiny little room. Ordered the first 2 out of house shows from them but got this from a grab bag and I'm so glad I did. Can't wait to see the other 2 shows with some bigger names on too.

Wow, a four star plus match with Hailey Hatred?

I definitely want to see that.
