ROH - Survival of The Fittest 2005

Qualifying Matches
Jay Lethal vs. Sal Rinauro - ***

Colt Cabana vs. Ricky Reyes - *1/4

Roderick Strong vs. Jerrelle Clark - **3/4

Austin Aries vs. Jimmy Rave - **

Samoa Joe vs. Milano Collection AT - ***1/4

James Gibson vs. Christopher Daniels - ***1/2

ROH Pure Title
Nigel McGuiness(c) vs. BJ Whitmer - **3/4

Survival of the Fittest Elimination Match
Jay Lethal vs. Colt Cabana vs. Austin Aries vs. Roderick Strong vs. Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels - ***1/2

Overall: 7/10

- What the hell was Aries/Rave? It started out great and they looked like they wanted to kill each other but when the actual bell rang it slowed down to nothing but punches and kicks and half the time neither guy looked like they knew what was gonna happen next. Terrible ending too, good to continue the GenNext/Embassy feud but terribly predictable and slow.

- I really enjoyed both Lethal/Rinauro and Joe/Milano. The crowd ate up everything Milano did, looked great in his debut. Gibson/Daniels had a nice backstory to it because it was supposed to be a title match before Gibson lost the belt. It's an odd one to rate though because it was went totally unnecessarily long at 26 minutes for the stuff they were actually doing in the ring. It was also weird seeing Gibson play a heel, it didn't look right in ROH. Besides that it's a smartly wrestled match but nothing too exciting.

- Nigel's antics were pure gold in his title match. BJ never stood a chance.

- Believe it or not this was actually the first SOTF match I've ever seen. I liked it but again I thought it was too long. The first 20 minutes or so were great but once it came down to the final four you could tell the guys were gettin reeeeally exhausted. I actually had to laugh at Aries' 450 botch. It kinda worked out well though with his back problem going into the finals. Good story with GenNext but nothing you really need to see.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWS Five Year Anniversary Weekend - Day 1

Adam Cole & Davey Richards vs The Briscoe Brothers
Davey works best when he's not working the ROH main event style and this was the case here. Good match.

Alex Reynolds vs AR Fox
AR Fox's insane athleticism initially wowed me but after a while you could tell he has no idea to actually work a match. Once Fox ran out of spots to do, this dragged like a motherfucker.

Tag Team Gauntlet
The Nasty Boys vs Modest & Mattixx vs Enhancement Talent vs Phat Pack vs Team Energy
What the actual fuck was this? This was the embodiment of everything that is wrong with small indy shows. Washed-up old guys way past their time, morbidly obese guys in singlets and even a half-baked Hardy Boyz rip-off. It's all here.

Samuray del Sol vs Mil Mascaras
Mascaras is super slow and can't take any bumps anymore but he still can perform his legendary matwork to a pretty acceptable standard. Pretty naff match but what are you expecting?

2 Cold Scorpio vs Vader
Vader can still work a decent match nowadays despite his limited mobility. 2 Cold took most of the bumps and the whole match is centered around his comeback.

Devon Moore & Kevin Matthews vs Dan Maff & Tommy Dreamer
They brawled all over the arena and Dreamer ate half-eaten food out of the bins. T'was fun.

The Sheik, Apoliyon, QT Marshall & George South vs Taka Suzuki, Koko B Ware, Mike Dennis & Star Man

$5 Wrestling Championship Match
Dynomite vs Freight Train
This wasn't funny. Doing $5 matches at live shows just doesn't work.

Brittney Savage vs Veda Scott

Tony Nese & Sami Callihan vs KAI & The Great Muta
Similar (but much better) to the Mascaras match. It's cool to see a legend like Muta but the match itself was pretty lackluster.

There's probably a lot better ways to spend 2 hours than to watch this.

Also I just finished Wrestleholics. DONT BUY IT. Its just awful. Theres a few amusing bits and a good story or two but its so disjointed. Its just a bunch of random clips with no story at all. Callihan isn't funny in anyway shape or form. I'd actually have preferred if it was Greg Excellent & Adam Cole... Cole was good but Jesus was Sami annoying.

Damn I ordered that in the last RF sale

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Got PWG Death to All But Metal, CZW TOD XI, CZW Prelude to Violence, $5 Wrestling Rumble in a Rec Center, and $5 Wrestling Rumble in a Rec Center.

The reason I say I recived the same $5 Wrestling dvds is because when I opend $5 Wrestling Live 3 it was the Rumble in a Rec Center dvd. I was not pleased.

Its just really bad. Maybe others will enjoy it but beside some non Sami funny moments like Rich Swann dancing and fun stories from other guys. Sami comes across like hes acting the whole time and its really hard to believe that Sami is actually this person. And if he is this person, he seems like a massive fuckwit. The whole thing is just used for Sami to put himself over when it should've built to his big match with Finlay instead of just random clips from various places.

Also Jigsaw is frequently unmasked which is pretty funny because he starts showing people in a club the Chikara app and pictures of himself with the mask. Lince though doesn't appear without his mask on and his face is blurred by a Cartoon Lince mask whenever they show him. Drew Gulak features every so often and I'd really have preferred an Adam Cole, Drew Gulak & Jigsaw documentary. Hell even Greg Excellent came across well.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

The fans of Ring of Honor have seen Jay Lethal grow up right in front of them. From his debut as Hydro in 2002 as part of the party-happy group known as Special K to his time spent under the tutelage of Samoa Joe, the ROH faithful watched Lethal grow as both a competitor and as a man. When he captured his first ROH championship, it was the culmination of a young man’s dream and the battles he fought against the likes of CM Punk, Low Ki, Spanky, and even Joe were proof that he earned his respect every step of the way.

After several years away, Lethal came back to the fold in 2011 a matured, seasoned fighter and immediately jumped back into the hunt for championships with contests against El Generico, Mike Bennett, Davey Richards, Roderick Strong, and others. From his return at “Best in the World 2011” against Bennett through his ROH World Title bout against Richards at “Homecoming 2012”, Jay hit the ring running and hasn’t looked back since. This 2-DVD set is a look back at what shaped Lethal, at the challenges he has faced since his return, and a warning to every competitor in ROH that there’s likely a Lethal Injection in their future…

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It will be a 2/3 falls, i think the Providence show with the ME and this alone will be better than the infamous original Boilling Point show.
