Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Damn that "ROH March Mayhem" sale or whatever they are calling it! I told myself I would stop buying DVDs other than PWG and Chikara for a while as I prepare to get my own apartment soon, but with the 45% discount today I just couldn't stop myself from getting completely caught up with the ROH catalog. Ordered the Chris Hero DVD set and all of the shows between Gateway to Honor and Final Battle 2011. I already bought the Summer of Punk and American Dragon ones a couple of weeks ago, wish I had waited. Oh well, at least I will have a huge back catalog of DVDs to watch when I am broke in my new place!

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

To be honest, judging by Seabs and other reviews, the latest show isn't the best to judge the company off. We all know that it's probably their weakest show in quite a long time.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

the Kurt Russellreunion shows are usually the weakest of the year. 2011 had Claudio/Generico to save it but apart from that they all haven't felt like PWG shows.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I don't class the Kurt Russell Reunion shows as PWG shows. They don't have the PWG atmosphere and don't feel anything like a traditional modern PWG show. They're just there so they can book some one time only guys like Dorada and RVD. I wasn't expecting anything from the show so I'm not bothered it was pretty average. Saying "PWG sucks" based off that show is pretty humorous though. It's their first below "really good" show in 2 years.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

CZW - Tournament of Death X

Fans Bring The Weapons

Get Hit With Shit
Matt Tremont vs Necro Butcher
Would of been a legit good match if it didn't go on 5 minutes longer than it should of have.

Light Tubes
Jaki Numazawa vs Danny Havoc

Thumbtack Kickpads & Barbed Wire Boards
Masashi Takeda vs Scotty Vortekz

Kenzans and Other Shit

They tried to initially work an actual match, but that plan failed dreadfully.

Barbed Wire Boards, Light Tubes & Thumb Tacks
Jaki Numazawa vs Masashi Takeda

Philly's Most Wanted vs Devon Moore & Lil Mondo
Fun little brawl.

Light Tubes, Barbed Wire Ropes & Panes of Glass

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Pulled from PWG's Twitter:
Just an off night last night, started by a group of people who killed the vibe again. A frustrating crowd to wrestle in front of no doubt.

Some pretty ridiculous comments. Can we knock it off with telling wrestlers to go back to ROH? All of these guys are PWG regulars. Guys like O'Reilly love being in PWG. Roddy has been a PWG regular for years. I think he deserves a little more respect than that.
This PWG/RoH BS is starting to piss me off. I'm not a fan of RoH but I will support them against idiocy such as this.

Sure, O'Reilly may be a RoH regular but he had a great match-up with The Young Bucks at PWG's Steen Wolf and the same sentiment goes for Strong. These guys put on entertaining performances for the PWG crowd and yet they're heckled for the promotion they're most closely tied to, dafuq?

The tendency for "smarks" (or, rather, elitist, sad-life douchebags) to move from one flavour-of-the-month opinion to another needs to stop. The Cena hate was one thing, Davey was another but this asinine BS is just a whole new ball-game. It's just bad for wrestling in general, and leaving a sour mood to a show of which the promotion is widely loved by the IWC. Yeah, sure, you want to "protect" your little slice of heaven from the Jiu-Jitsu Jackoffs but you're only ruining the very promotion you're trying to "protect".

From Excalibur's words it seems the guys managed to still wrestle at their best, but it's completely understandable if they're taken out of their zone by besmirching comments such as that. It suddenly becomes a catch-22 if they do, however, as they're now propagating justification as to why they shouldn't step foot in PWG in the crowd's eyes.

Many good and well-loved wrestlers have come from "crappy" promotions, though, so why should it be any different now just because it's RoH? Are we to deny someone their right to be financially secure and happy in life, which, in turn, gives us the enjoyment and reason as to why we watch wrestling simply because the one company that can do that is on the IWC's shit-list?

We get it; RoH sucks and PWG rules but those with an actually decent IQ stopped caring about that trail of thought once the idea started to get over-used. It's just so tiresome. Can we not reach a point where we stop caring about where people are from/what they represent and rather just focus on the match they're trying to put on? I honestly couldn't care where someone is from so long as they entertain me - and the same holds true if a promotion I dislike puts on an entertaining match.

I can't help but think those same fans would have suddenly and hypocritically praised Strong etc if they'd put on a classic and completely forgotten their idiotic hatred from a few minutes before, though...
