Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Cabana has been not listenable on commentary. Rather than being funny, he sounds like he's trying out for a regular gig. Didn't like him on KRR3 or DGUSA Mania weekend.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I don't really understand why you would use a comedian for a serious wrestling product.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I thought that too. He doesn't fit the mould of EVOLVE if he's wrestling. The commentary gig he's been doing has been serious though so it makes more sense if he's only commentating rather than wrestling.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Cabana sucks ass on commentary imo, there are so many better guys that Gabe could go with. Hell, why not hold auditions for a permanent position beside Lenny? At least that way they could help some guys get their foot in the door and bring a fresh voice to the shows.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Chuck Taylor should be a permanent color commentator.

ROH – RESPECT IS EARNED – MANHATTAN, NEW YORK – MAY 12, 2007
There was recently a topic here in Other Wrestling about the best opening matches on shows. Someone mentioned Whitmer vs Morishima from Respect Is Earned, I remembered I bought this a while ago so decided to give it a watch.

DISC ONE - Pay Per View

MATCH #1: ROH World Title Match – Takeshi Morishima vs. BJ Whitmer
**1/2
As has been said before, a very short match it's only about 3 minutes but it's explosive and really got the crowd even more fired up than they were from the pre-show match.

MATCH #2: Rocky Romero vs. Naomichi Marufuji
*3/4
I was looking through other people's reviews and this seemed to be getting around the *** mark nearly everytime. Personally I thought it was a very boring match. The leg work periods went on for too long for my taste, Romero's selling (or lack thereof) didn't really bother me much though - I just think he's a boring wrestling all-around.

MATCH #3: ROH World Tag Team Title Match – The Briscoe Brothers vs. Claudio Castagnoli & Matt Sydal
****
Awesome tag team match, post match brawl with Steen/Generico was fun too.

MATCH #4: Roderick Strong vs. Delirious
**3/4

MATCH #5: KENTA & Nigel McGuinness vs. Takeshi Morishima & Bryan Danielson
***1/2

DISC TWO - Bonus Matches
Tank Toland vs. Brent Albright
**

Davey Richards vs. Erick Stevens
**1/2

Sara Del Ray vs. Daizee Haze
**

Tag Team Scramble – Jimmy Rave & Adam Pearce vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Irish Airborne vs. Pelle Primeau & Mitch Franklin
***1/2

There were also 3 or 4 segments with Jimmy Jacobs and Lacey. Usually I can't stand Jacobs but besides the tag team scramble these segments were the highlights of this bonus disc, really enjoyable..

That is why it's called organized crime.
