Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Can't be bothered typing out a review/stars for PWG Worlds Finest. Honestly unless you insist on watching every PWG show, skip it. Steen/Avalon was really good opener but everything else was either not very good or average. Both three ways were decent and the rest wasn't good. Steen and Excalibur's commentary was the only saving grace of the show. I'll never watch a PWG show the same after Steen pointed out the Chinese guy in the front row. Holy fucking shit his reactions to stuff are incredible.

Haha I seem to recall the 4-way RDV match being my #2 MOTY for 2009 at ****3/4, only behind Nigel/Dragon at Rising Above 08 (yeah I'm one of THOSE guys who put the December matches in the following year). To me it was the pinnacle of innovative spotfests and everything was so cleanly done. Each to their own eh?! Looks like pretty much everyone enjoyed it though, and that's the main thing, regardless of rating.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Border Wars

Rhino vs. Eddie Edwards ***-***¼

The All Night Express and TJP vs. The Young Bucks and Mike Mondo ***

Grudge Match

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Jay Lethal ***

Lance Storm vs. Mike Bennett ***¼

Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin ***½

ROH Television Title Match
Roderick Strong vs. Fit Finlay **¼

Fight Without Honor for the ROH World Tag Team Championship

Jay and Mark Briscoe vs. Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team **½

ROH World Title Match

Davey Richards vs. Kevin Steen ***¾-****


Edwards/Rhino: Seriously enjoyed this, such an easy opener to get into.

Bucks-Mondo/TJP-ANX: A few mistimed moments hurt this early on but it was overall a pretty fun little match. The series of kicks spot was pretty cool.

Lethal/Ciampa: Good showing from both men in a surprisingly fun match. WTF at Ciampa's new look.

Storm/Bennett: Best Mike Bennett match I've seen and a pretty fun match overall. I liked Storm using the codebreaker and Fozzy as his theme.

Cole/Elgin: Damn enjoyable match. Elgin has improved so much in the last 6 months.

Strong/Finlay: Very disappointing.

WGTT/Briscoes: Meh. Had a couple okay moments thanks to the Briscoes but still nothing great.

Steen/Davey: Real good main event, though I'm a bigger fan of their match from Champions' Challenge. Steen putting Davey's mouthguard in his own mouth was legit disgusting lol.


Overall I enjoyed Border Wars quite a bit considering it's the first full ROH show I've watched since Final Battle last year. Outside of a disappointing Strong/Finlay match and the usual meh Briscoes/WGTT, everything else was enjoyable hitting the *** mark or higher

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

EVOLVE is going to have a tripleshot in June, apparently. 14, 15 & 16. And it will be in new markets it seems, therefore I don't expect more than 200-300 people in venues.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

With the way they've advertised their shows lately I'd say 300 is very hopeful.

EDIT: They're all in Florida and the first is going to be the home of the new women's fed by WWN. With the struggles of recent Florida shows not on WM weekend can't see any show getting past 250 attendance.

EVOLVE 14
Thursday, June 28th
The Orpheum
1915 East 7th Avenue
Ybor City, FL 33605

EVOLVE 15
Friday, June 29th
The Wildwood Recreation Center
1000 28th Street South
St. Petersburg, FL 33712

EVOLVE 16
Saturday, June 30th
Potter's house Gym
1150 Lane Avenue South
Jacksonville, FL 32205

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Shit, I thought that June weekend is reserved for DGUSA. But still, it's great that EVOLVE runs so frequently these days. So many nice options to book for Gabe, and I hope Generico, Finlay and Shelley will be signed for these shows.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Gabe will be lucky to draw 500 for all 3 shows unless the local promotion is promoting it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I think even KingCrash and smitlick are being generous on their predictions. They struggled to get 100 for 12 and 13 right? Plus Sami's off these 3 shows too? Doubt they can get Finlay for all 3 dates. Isn't really anyone available to them who's a big enough draw to make a big difference. Meh.
