Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

$5 Wrestling: This Many

I wanted to get some DVDs while in Miami but I was on a tight budget and this was the only one I could afford. Here we go I guess...

Dick Foley vs. "War Dawg" Rick Havok

Why does this company have their own Tough Enough and why is there a Mick Foley impersonator? Match starts with some terrible chain wrestling and some super weak chops and slaps. Foley also hit 3 clotheslines in a row where he made no contact at all with War Dawg. Everything was sloppy, nothing looked good, the gimmick was stupid, there is still no fucking crowd at all for the show, and neither guy gave me the impression that they knew what they were doing. That being said it's probably one of the better matches that this company has had.

Raider Rock vs. Storm Maverick

I think both guys might be retarded. It was rather amazing how they managed to botch every single move they did. Literally every single spot was botched which was rather impressive in how terrible it was. I think you could put two random guys into the ring (and I mean guys and not wrestlers) and they would be able to do a better job than this shit. One of the worst matches I've ever seen from a technical standpoint. At least they tried to tell a story where Raider Rock just beat the shit out of Storm but all of the moves looked stupid and terrible. This was embarassing to watch.

The Shiek and Grease Monkey vs. The Cruel Connection

This kids in the crowd actually seemed to enjoy the match. Or at least they found something entertaining to do while the match was going on. Also why the fuck is Sheik working as a face? He's literally been the only guy that appears to have any wrestling ability in the whole company and was a solid heel with his very generic gimmick. And turning him face made no sense. Also are we supposed to think the Cruel Connection members are identical? They have the same gear and made some illegal switches but the ref didn't seem to notice the obvious switches. Ending was insanely stupid as well, one of the worst roll-ups ever and the tights were held right in front of the ref but he counted to 3 anyway. Everything about this was bad. I still don't understand why The Sheik was a face and why he lost in his first match as a face.

America's Team: American Idiot and Dyn-O-Mite vs. The Un-Americans: Jeff Hart and Johnny N.

Johnny N. apparently hates the extreme racial discrimination so he has defected to Canada and decided to team with Hart, who is obviously a Canadian. I just don't believe that he's a real Hart though. Jeff Hart never got in the ring and the Americans just beat up Johhny N. for almost the entire time. I was left wondering what the point of all of this was. Highlight of the match was a shoulder tackle, and that's all that really needs to be said.

$5 Wrestling Championship:

Freight Train(c) vs. Wolfman

Fuck, what this awful. Freight Train seems to know how to do a bodyslam and a shoulder block. Yet this guy is their champion. He doesn't sell anything and just looks stupid most of the time. Never have I seen a wrestler in some type of submission start clapping himself to get the crowd going. His comeback consisted of Wolfman running into the corner and Freight Train hitting him with this super weak elbow. How is this the main event of any type of show? I am baffled as to why the main event was just so terrible. Nothing good to say about this match.

I don't know why I expected anything different. I wish I had $10 so I could have purchased a PWG DVD or just something that didn't totally suck like this DVD did. Avoid at all costs.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Aww man. I got the $10.79 PWG World's Finest deal too, but just received an email from Highspots giving me a full refund as I "didn't choose a delivery option." Which is lame as it's their fault; the only option was for free delivery. Oh well...

2. Rise & Prove Tag Team Tournament- Match #1: Shiloh Jones & Rudy Switchblade vs. Sean Casey & Chris Silvio - **1/2

3. Rise & Prove Tag Team Tournament- Match #2: Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls vs. Alabama Attitude - **3/4

Great match, good spots.

5. Mike Mondo vs. Samson Walker - *1/4

6. Rise & Prove Tag Team Tournament- Finals: Winners Match #1 vs. Winners Match #2 - ***

7. Proving Ground Match: World TV Champion Jay Lethal vs. BJ Whitmer - ***
Great to see BJ again, and he looks in good shape.

8. World Tag Team Title Match: Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Davey Richards & Kyle O'Reilly - ****1/4-****1/2

Overall Rating: Great arena, very good crowd. The ME was really great (spot-fest, but still awesome), others was like good-ok-weak. too many OVW guys. I Will give it... 7.0, could be better if Samson-Mondo wasn't in the card.

Open The Freedom Gate
Johnny Gargano vs. Masato Yoshino - ****1/4

Akira Tozawa, Low Ki & BxB Hulk vs. Ricochet, PAC & Masaaki Mochizuki - ****

Another good weekend from DGUSA, El Generico’s debut was great and the crowd loved it, Chuck Taylor fell perfectly into his role as a heel, Mochizuki & Tozawa had another great match & Gargano came back from the EVOLVE injury with two fine matches. Only things that were below par were the finality (hopefully) of the Sabu & Fox/D.U.F. feud and anything involving The Scene.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Does anyone have a Ringside Membership on the ROH site? A friend and I went halves on an annual membership and it is well and truly worth it. There's a heap of matches which slipped between the cracks for me (MCMG vs Briscoes at GTGM for example) and now they're all there waiting to be watched

Here's a link to all of the shows/matches -
