Is that a one-time thing or what?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I think it's a new concept in TNA where new wrestlers wrestle each week and if they impressed they get offered a contract. I'd say if you read the full spoilers it might say.

But that all changed at “Border Wars” when Haas & Benjamin defeated The Briscoes in a Fight Without Honor to capture the World Tag Team Titles for the second time.

As a result of that victory, combined with the fact that ANX has been waiting for a title match since defeating WGTT in a Proving Ground match last year during Charlie & Shelton’s first reign AND that ANX holds another victory over WGTT from the “10th Anniversary Event”, the decision has been made by ROH officials to make their scheduled bout for Richmond THIS Saturday a World Tag Team Championship Match!!!

“Damn right.” said a noticeably frustrated Kenny King to, “It’s been a long time coming, this title match. From the night we earned this shot beating Haas and Benjamin, through the Young Bucks trying to take Rhett out, him coming back from surgery, putting a whooping on WGTT again in New York, then taking out the Jackson boys, it’s about damn time. This is what we’ve been waiting for, for months now, since we lost in Chicago last year, this second chance is what we’ve been waiting for. There ain’t no slipping in this one, no chance in hell we ain’t walking away with those titles finally belonging to ANX. Me and Rhett, we promised ourselves along time ago we would make this happen and I have to admit we broke that promise, hurts like hell to admit that too. So this time, this time, there’s no losing, there’s no coming up short, this time Charlie and Shelton, the All Night Express runs right over your asses and closes the book on your second title run right quick.”

Recent history, that ethereal concept of momentum, it all weighs in the favor of Rhett Titus and Kenny King. Can they finally achieve their dream and capture the ROH World Tag Team Titles this Saturday night in Richmond? Be there live to find out!!! Tickets are available right here or get them at the door!

You know you remember this.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread


Caleb Konley vs Jake Manning vs Adam Page
Manning's a great character but he needs to be working fun, crowd-interaction tags, not generic Indy matches like this.

Alex Reynolds vs Mike Cruz
Everything there is to hate about the Indies right now. Way too many of these guys who all have them same look, do complex moves and can't work.

Low Ki vs Jigsaw
Ki continues to be trash.

Finlay vs Jon Davis
Good god did this drag. Was decent but bored the hell out of me for the most part.

Johnny Gargano & Samuray Del Sol vs Chuck Taylor & Silas Young
Can't stand Chuck these days. Don't see why people are raving about Del Sol. He's still pretty average.

El Generico vs Ricochet
Sucks barely anyone was in attendance and those who were didn't care about anything on the show. Ki did his best to bury both men (especially Generico) and a ton of pro wrestling concepts on commentary.

Sami Callihan vs AR Fox - Evolution's End
I liked Sami in this but Fox sucks so bad and the gimmick was silly. Why can't you just make it no dq everywhere. Stop trying to create complex gimmick matches Gabe. Fox is athletic and such but he's a terrible wrestler. Incapable of doing anything more than flips. Ladder spots were so retarded because it didn't reach the top rope so doing a suplex from the ladder was no different, if less than from the top rope and while the dive looked fancy what was the point in diving over the ladder too? Fox spent a shit load of time setting that spot up too. Shame those 2 elements sucked because Callihan seemed in the mood to have a great feud ending war.

Very average show I thought. Bar Generico/Ricochet nobody on the show stands out as being different. I so badly want a Akebono type fatty in a major Indy. There's good ones wrestling in local US Indies too so they're out there. Literally looked like there was less than 200 in attendance and none of them cared for much of anything.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread


AR Fox vs Jigsaw vs Samuray Del Sol vs Ricochet

Silas Young vs Adam Page

Caleb Konley vs Kyle Matthews

Jake Manning vs Alex Reynolds

Low Ki vs Jon Davis

Chuck Taylor vs Mike Cruz

Sami Callihan vs El Generico

Johnny Gargano vs AR Fox - Open The Freddom Gate Championship

Ki/Generico and Callihan/Generico are well worth watching. The rest isn't the post match of the main event which was really nice. Waaaaay too many generic indy geeks on these two shows and overrated guys like Fox and Taylor on top. There's 2 matches that totally deliver though so it's a decent show overall.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

There were less than 100 people at EVOLVE 12, 100-125 for 13. 95% of those in attendance weren't familiar with a single thing going on. Happens when you announce shows just over four weeks out and never promote anything.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

All the same a promotion like EVOLVE should be drawing much better crowds than that. I mean it's basically like nobody cared to go to the show. How fucking bad is that.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

EVOLVE is three years old and had Finlay and Generico on one show, Callihan on both (regard of what I may think of him) and Low Ki on both. The fact they could not even draw 300/400 each night is ridiculous. i wish Gabe would leave DG: USA behind and concentrate on EVOLVE. If he cut out being a cunt, EVOLVE has potential. Real potential. I've always said that.

The one thing that could, and will now hurt him is that ROH is taking legal action against him for comments he made, which are in breach of the terms of his agreement upon leaving.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

EVOLVE would be doing much better if someone else runned it. Gabe's got DGUSA and ROH distractions which clearly hurt EVOLVE. An Indy show with Finlay/Generico/Low Ki/Callihan should not be struggling to draw 100 people. It's not like EVOLVE is a local Indy on a tight budget with nothing to work with either. They've got international talent and mainstream attention as far as the Indy market goes.

I wonder how badly them being on iPPV hurts their live attendance. Any word on what iPPV numbers they do? There isn't really a live experience you associate with an EVOLVE show like you would a ROH show.
