Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Not sure when this was posted on IPW's site but it's really sad.
Open Letter To IPW Fans
Hello IPW Fans,

It is with a heavy heart I must inform you all that, effective immediately, the Super Junior Tournament scheduled for April has been cancelled.

I also have to tell you all that, effective immediately, The Fountain Square Salvation Army Community Center will no longer allow IPW, or any wrestling, in their building.

In this business we mince words very often, so as not to draw any negative attention, or "heat," as we say, from others within the business. However, sometimes you have to call a spade a shovel and tell the god's honest truth, so here it is,...
This whole mess is due to an inappropriate promo by CZW, that was placed on YouTube, featuring Greg Excellent wearing nothing but a towel with a fake male sexual organ on it. This promo also promoted the Super Saturday show, and featured the name of the building and its address, naturally.
CZW was warned not to include the "Salvation Army," name in their advertisements as the building didn't wish to have name association with, nor give the impression that they condone or encourage, CZW's product. A similar situation came up with Dragon Gate USA. Clearly this was a corporate made decision, and albeit a stingy one, it was policy nonetheless, and needed to be adhered to.
CZW disregarded this warning, the promo was seen by someone higher up in the chain of command, and that was the "nail in the coffin."
Damage control was done to assure CZW's Super Saturday show still happened, and we've been trying to smooth things over with the building ever since. But sadly, the final word was handed down yesterday.
So to put it broadly, IPW is being punished for something we didn't even do.

As of now, operations are "on the shelf," until further notice. I apologize to all of you, the fans, as I know you are disappointed. This is heart breaking for a lot of people who call IPW their home. Myself included. But should our situation change, you'll be the first to know.

What does the future hold? Time will tell.

P.s. CZW did not, and still has not taken responsibility, or apologized for any of this. That needs to be known, I don't care if it makes someone angry.
Greg Excellent and CZW killing the Indies off one at a time. Bravo.

Another reason why I hate that shithole of an organization.

It was posted about a couple of weeks after the Super Saturday show, no idea if IPW still hasn't found a building yet. Never watched the promo, when the pic is Greg Excellent in a dicktowel you know it's going to suck. But still not apologizing for it does seem like a DJ Hyde douchebag move so that's not surprising.

Has CZW done anything else to any other indy promotion? Genuinely wondering as I didn't really follow indy wrestling (news) until last year..

PWG DDT4 Night 2 (2006)

TopGun Talwar vs. Stalker Ichikawa:*Ĺ Bad match quality but a decent little comedy match. Pretty stander Stalker stuff but I never really get bored of it. The first time I watched TopGun I thought he was pretty funny but after that I just thought he tries too hard a lot of the time and doesnít come off that funny.

The Briscoe Brothers vs. Ricky Reyes/Rocky Romero: *** This took a little bit to get going but once it started there were quite a few nice spots. It irks me to see The Briscoes to get hit by about 6 possible match ending spots and for the Briscoes to only hit a couple and have it be over(I tend not to like to give match results away in a review but itís a tournament). Though to be fair the finish was pretty sweet looking.

Kevin Steen vs. Ronin: ** Pretty much the definition of meh. I donít believe I have seen a Ronin match that I have actually enjoyed so I wasnít thrilled going into this match to begin with. There was a little comedy in the beginning with the speed of the refís counts. Steen isnít the catís pajamas yet which nowadays lets him make a match just a little better by the crowd getting behind it. This isnít the case here so you wind up with meh.

Roderick Strong/Pac vs. Masato Yoshino/ Naruki Doi: ***ĺ MOTN at this point. Overall it was a great effort by all involved in this match. Started off quick, then slowed down in a good way, and then I had a little finishing stretch. Roddy is an absolute bruiser when he gets to work with smaller workers. PAC has developed into a true all around great wrestler these days but at this point he is still just an aerial artist which isnít a bad thing. Yoshino and Doi showed why they are such a good unit using their speed and their submissions to slow the stronger Roderick Strong down. Plus, they are so damn fluid in the ring. Roddy and PAC had to make a few comebacks before the eventual payoff but they were able to get control. Aside from an extremely noticeable botch by PAC it was a very good contest.

El Generico vs. CIMA: *** This match followed a really good match and sadly the crowd didnít get into this match as match as the previous one or this could have been a little bit better. This match does have an interesting moment where CIMA ties El Genericoís mask tassels to the ring rope. El Generico tries to get up and the tassels rip off. Generico then unties them while getting stomped on by CIMA and goes on to bitch slap CIMA with the tassels. It was awesome. Other than that it was pretty standard PWG fun. Some good wrestling mixed with a little comedy.

Don Fuji vs. Bino Gambino vs. TJ Perkins vs. Human Tornado: *** What a nice 4-way? They gave a good match without doing more than they needed to. Three things to know about this match 1. Don Fuji gives and takes 3X as much as most men 2. TJ and Bino arenít friends 3. Hearing ďThatís my .....Ē in a match makes it that much better.

Joey Ryan vs. Bryan Danielson: ***Ĺ Iím not the biggest fan of Joey Ryanís wrestling. I am a pretty big fan of his character work. It is top notch stuff. Bryan Danielson is the best wrestler of the 21st century and can seemingly get a good match out of practically anyone, hence why this ended up being a good match.

Kings of Wrestling/Trailer Park Boys vs. Davey Richards & Super Dragon/ Arrogance: ***ľ To get the most of Super Dragon just put 7 other wrestlers in the match. That worked swell here and gave us a good match. The ending was a little weak but it had its purpose so I wonít shit on it.

PAC & Roderick Strong vs. The Briscoe Brothers: ****ľ Now that was a hell of a main event. One of the best tag teams out there against the complimenting team of ďThe Man that Gravity ForgotĒ, PAC, and ďThe Messiah of the BackbreakerĒ, Roderick Strong. The Briscoe Brothers try to wear down PAC in this match which was the opposite strategy that Muscle Outlawz used. Doi/Yoshino knew they were too quick for Roderick and that with PAC things were a little bit dicier; The Briscoes knew they were just way too strong for PAC. When Roderick gets in though then this becomes a much more even and crazy match. The Briscoes try to hit all the big moves that got them to the finals but Roderick and PAC are wise to it for almost the entire match and are able to avoid the big moves and reverse momentum.

OVERALL: A real solid undercard with all but two matches being at least good. PAC and Roderick Strong put on 1 really good match and one flat out awesome match, not to mention the two best matches of the show, and are the clear MVPs of the show. Without the main event the show is decent but with it the show ends up being really good.
