Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

True, thats the one thing I like about the new ROH store actually being told when stuff ships rather than having to guess and seeing when it turns up.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Just picked up Final Battle 2007, 8th Year Anniversary Show, and Final Battle 2009 in the sale. A little over $30 with shipping isn't bad at all.

ROH One Year Anniversary Show

Chad Collyer vs. EZ Money vs. Michael Shane vs. Colt Cabana

Michael Shane was really the star of this match, the whole story that they were trying to tell was based off him. Early on he hit EZ Money with a cheap shot that led to Collyer taking him down with a clothesline, than Michael Shane hit a blind tag on Collyer so he could get into the match. In fact the way that Shane wrestled the entire match was so smart. EZ Money ended up spending a lot of time in the ring taking damage from everyone. Well he hit a big spot that set him up to make a tag, well Shane jumped out of the way and forced him to stay in the ring, than he hit another blind tag on Collyer so he could be in the ring with the injured guy.

They did a great job using Colt in the match as well, the fans loved him and even at this stage in his career he had a ton of charisma. So of course he spent lot of the match on the apron trying to get into the match. He was getting reactions from the crowd just because they thought he was going to get into the match.

Thing eventually broke down and I was happy to see that they didn’t get into the overkill finish. They hit all their spots, there was only a single botch by EZ Money, and the match ended at the right time. The second half of the match was pretty good and the first half couldn’t have been done any better. I really liked this one a lot.

Flashback: Hey Tommy Dreamer was cutting the same promos he does today back in 2002! Who knew?

Fast Eddie, Don Juan, and Hot Stuff Hernandez vs. The Carnage Crew

Well Hernandez got some offense in during the match but his partners basically got their asses kicked by the Carnage Crew. Don Juan was stiffed pretty badly. It was kind of fun to watch I guess. I think Fast Eddie went for a moonsault to the floor and at that point the Carnage Crew broke out the weapons and annihilated the Texas Wrestling Academy Guys. The ref called for a DQ. It really wasn’t very good. Not a fan of the Carnage Crew and not my favorite group of people from the Texas Wrestling Academy.

Jay Briscoe vs. Mark Briscoe

So this is going to be really tough to do a review on since I can’t tell the Briscoes apart, yes even after years of seeing them wrestle I still don’t know which one is Mark and which one is Jay. So at this point the feud between them was really starting to wind down, they had regained the respect for each other and both guys said that this would be the last match against each other as they were going to start teaming after this. So they had some really good technical back and forth stuff early on.

The Briscoes really have great chemistry in the ring together. They are certainly closer to Bret and Owen and not Jeff and Matt when it comes to brothers wrestling each other. Everything that they did looked good and the way that they were able to flow from one move to the next was impressive. Perfect timing on all the high risk as well.

This really would be similar to what would happen if I had to fight my brother. We would start off not so brutal, one of us would try something sneaky (the Briscoe in black pretended to be knocked out early on), things would get really intense (the Briscoes had this crazy slugfest outside the ring) and eventually we would just go all out. I can’t think of a higher praise to give the match other than saying it’s exactly how brothers that don’t hate each other should wrestle.

Steve Corino vs. Homicide

So Corino cuts a lengthy promo where he adds Michale Shane and CW Anderson to his stable. Homicide doesn’t seem to care that he is really outnumbered, he just attacks Corino in the middle of the ring to start the match. I really liked how they didn’t actually cheat in the match but still were great heels. All the guys that were at ringside with Corino didn’t interfere and respected the Code of Honor. It was little things that they did, like Samoa Joe telling Homicide he could fuck him up if this wasn’t ring of Honor. I loved how they all went to trash talk ‘Cide when he missed a big move on the floor. CW Anderson arguing with Gabe was also pretty cool to see. The whole angle that they were running here just had a realistic feel to it.

This show was almost 8 years ago and a bunch of wrestlers that I like were involved, and I still wanted to beat the shit out of Corino and his stable. The match was good but not great. Homicide made one mistake after some good back and forth action that ended up costing the match. He pretty much jumped through a chair for lack of a better way of describing the spot. He put up a good effort after that by kicking out of a lot of big moves before he was finally choke out. Good match but let’s face it nobody will remember this show for the match, it’s all about what happened after it…

There was a big fucking riot! Granted the first guy that I saw jump the rail and storm the ring was none other than Julius Smokes but other than that it seemed so real. Pretty crazy to watch really and it was such a good idea and done so well. I don’t think Corino and his stable could have done a better job of trying to convince people that wrestling is real. Overkill after that though. I didn’t need to see the entire thing a second and third time with the “ROH Exclusive Replays”

CW Anderson vs. CM Punk

Very cool to see Punk wrestle when he wasn’t even an indy star yet. I thought this was a pretty solid match but the fans weren’t into it at all. It reminded me a lot more of something that we would see on a WWE show as they kept a fairly slow pace and kept the spots to a minimum. Throw in the fact that they had one of the hardest spots on the card to wrestle at (right after intermission) and you have bad combination for the crowd. It’s also kind of hard to follow a big fucking riot.

Solid match where Anderson spent a good deal of time working on the arm of Punk and to Punk’s credit he made sure he didn’t use the arm very much when he got his offense in.

Bryan Danielson vs. Samoa Joe

Very smart booking with this one. Samoa Joe was fairly new and Danielson really needed to get a win as he had dropped the last few of his matches. So it was a tough booking position to be in since you really wouldn’t want either guy to lose. In the end Joe ended up looking like the monster that ROH would book him to be and Danielson got the win he needed, but he seemed to get a little lucky as he only won with a roll up.

Joe was in control for the most part, he hit a lot of devastating moves against Danielson. He was really stiff, not surprising at all but this was up there with some of his stiffer matches. Danielson hung with him and got in enough shots to keep things competitive. Danielson ended up playing that the role that he has been taking in WWE. He’s someone you don’t take lightly and he looked really tough but he was still the underdog against a much larger opponent. Very fast paced and hard hitting without being a spotfest as it told a pretty easy to follow story. Exactly the type of match that ROH wanted their guys to be having.

Number One Contender's Match
Low-Ki vs. AJ Styles vs. Paul London

So the winner of this was going to get a title match in the main event (or at least that was what was supposed to happen). They started really really fast and they just kept going all out until the match ended. They did a bunch of cool shit and they hit each other really hard. Highlight of the match had to be a top rope huricanrana where London caught Styles and hit him with a Powerbomb while he was in mid air. My words can’t do that spot justice, I just sort of set there in stunned silence when I saw it happen.

This was a spotfest for sure but they had the top faces in the company in the ring with each other and they all really wanted the title shot against Xavier. They had a good reason to make this a spotfest because the stakes were so high, they were some of the top guys in the company, and nobody was going to cheat at all to get ahead in the match. You can’t do a spotfest much better than this.

ROH World Championship Match
Xavier(c.) vs. Paul London

So instead of having a match in between Xavier came in and demanded that the match start right away. London did a fantastic job selling that he was exhausted the entire match, that actually might not have been selling though. I know Xavier is usually considered to be the worst ROH Champion ever but in the role that he was asked to play he was good at it. If I were a big ROH fan at this time I would be disgusted that this ass was the champion. Look at what the Prophecy was trying to do at the time and you realize that having Xavier as the champion was a good idea.

I don’t know if I’ve seen a better performance by Paul London. He was impossible not to get behind and this match really had that special feeling. Seeing the way everyone in the crowd shot up when he pushed Xavier off the top rope and had him set up for the Shooting Star Press was very cool to see. Everyone really thought that the title was going to change hands once he hit. I knew that he wasn’t going to win and I still had no idea how Xavier was going to get out of it. Having Allison Danger interfere and cost London the title was an awesome idea. In the end the fans may have been cheated but London looked amazing. Xavier looked weak but he is supposed to look weak. He’s the champion that you’re supposed to be ashamed of. My personal favorite match of the night.

What an amazing show. The last 3 matches were everything that you could hope for and this might be one of the best ROH shows that I’ve ever seen. What? There’s another match?…..

Scramble Match



Still a really good show even if there was no reason for it to keep going after the title match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Everything about the One-Year Anniversary is fantastic (except the Carnage Crew match) provided you turn it off before the last match. The Group was going to be fucking amazing, too bad Corino disappeared for like six months and they cut off the whole thing to set up one title match way too early, and in doing so killed Michael Shane, who honestly might have been my favorite thing about early ROH except for London. Who by the way might have my favorite underdog babyface performance ever in that title match.

The website still lists them as preorders, so who knows when something will happen, I ordered mine a few weeks back and all I've got is an email from Paypal acknowledging that I sent the money.
I hate that DGUSA and Evolve won't send updates about shipping, Unlike every other place I purchase from online.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I would imagine they would have the DVDs out for the next set of DGUSA shows... Probably ship out after next weekend at the latest.

And I don't think I've ever seen London as good as he was in those two matches. It was incredible to watch because every single thing that he did in the ring furthered the story of him being the underdog face. Just the way he was taking bumps made it look like he was in serious trouble. I have the feeling that the more I think about that Xavier/London match the more I'm going to like it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Dragon Gate USA - Freedom Fight 2011 PPV

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Arik Cannon - **1/2

World-1 (BxB Hulk & Homicide) vs. Kamikaze USA (Jon Moxley & Akira Tozawa) - **3/4

Shingo vs. CIMA - ***1/2

Ronin (Johnny Gargano, Chuck Taylor & Rich Swann) vs. Genki Horiguchi, Ricochet & Austin Aries - ***3/4

YAMATO vs. Masato Yoshino - ***3/4

First part of the ppv started slow with the meh opener and the weird tag dynamic between the two teams (Hulk/Tozawa and Homicide/Moxley meshed fine, but Hulk/Moxley was horrible) but it got better with what you'd expect from CIMA/Shingo, the members of Ronin working very well together and a main event that would have been better if the crowd had a pulse.
