Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

-IMO AAW is probably one of the most consistent indies since 2008 but never considered on par with the likes of ROH, PWG, CZW, etc. To me they're like the Midwest version of JAPW since they focus primarily on Midwest talent and other guys who don't get showcased anywhere else. I wish they had VoD.

-To be fair even Jay himself admitted that Mark was the smarter Briscoe so that's not surprising. Davey's coworkers may not like him, but thankfully pro wrestling is not a popularity contest. I dislike everything about Kenny Omega so I can't comment on him lol. Sounds like Roddy Strong made for a pretty good shoot (despite getting the least amount of coverage lol).

-I'm" truly starting to believe that IWA-MS, for all the good it did, was a black hole in indy wrestling.

A lot of people said this recently, but can anyone explain why? I never really peid attention to them, I believe I watched like 2 random shows, and 10ish random "big" matches.

In a nutshell, IWA-MS was a hotbed promotion where a lot then future prominent indy talent got started in some capacity and they put some prominent matches during their time. The main issue with IWA-MS was Ian Rotten, dude had horrible business practices, some questionable booking decisions and from his relationship with Mickie Knuckles, the whole JC Bailey deal and other stories, as its booker and representative it put IWA-MS in a bad light.


Kevin Steen vs. Davey Richards- ROH World Championship | Anything Goes Match
ROH Best in the World 2012: Hostage Crisis

-Since DBDX is coming I thought I'd give this match a second look and I must say it came off much better this time than the last time. Davey was absolutely gold here, Steen performed well and while the commentary was overbearing at times, very entertaining. It was chaotic but the good kind, with lots of big brutal spots, solid back and forth brawl and they still managed to tell a good story within the context of the match itself. Steen winning with the package piledriver was a great way to end the match. Oh, the "we want fire" chant was stupid. This may very well be one of my favorite ROH matches this year now.

I also want to add that I wish to see Kevin Steen stop taking these brutal bumps, while in this match it was understandable I'd wish he'd work safer. The guy is 26 Years old with a wife and kid and he is to talented to throw all that away for some hardcore spot pops. Moderation > Saturation.

Briscoe Brothers vs. Kings of Wrestling- ROH World Tag Team Championship
ROH Big Bang 2010

-I have special memories of this match, I watched it live on iPPV and I remember my friend blowing a gasket because The Briscoes lost the straps after just finally winning them and of course Jay puking. This was a great tag match, lots of back and forth really good pacing I must say and it didn't really drag other than a few pockets. Hero fucking spammed the elbows but at least he kept in check for most of the match. All four guys worked really hard to make to this match special. Great stuff.

Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. Super Dragon & Excalibur- CZW vs. IWS
CZW Cage of Death VI

-Really solid crusierweight style tag match that got a lot of time. Good back and forth while making sure to emphasize the feud between Steen and Dragon, and Dragon was super over (sorry for the pun). Dragon acts like an absolute douchebag during his control segments on the neutralized Generico lol. Some really good spots like the Tricolor Suplex by Super Dragon, Steen curbstomping Dragon, the slingshot Flatliner and the sick Spider Suplex/Flipping Van Terminator spot. Excalibur sold the Turnbuckle Brainbuster like he died lol. Just a great tag match all around.

Just want to say yet again that OMFG Kevin Steen was a beast in CZW and further solidifies that if it wasn't for CZW ROH wouldn't have given Steenerico another chance.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG Threemendous III

Joey Ryan vs Famous B: **1/2
This wasn’t the go all out match that was the opener of Death to All But Metal but this wasn’t a bad way to start the show. Famous B has now opened the past two shows against PWG veterans and hopefully that helps him develop as a wrestler. Yeah, and Joey Ryan using the Tazmission was awesome.

TJ Perkins vs Roderick Strong:: ***1/2
These guys don’t get enough credit IMO. These guys hold for hold with each other in the early going and it fast and furious like nobody’s business. Roderick Strong is a bit of a brute just like I like it and kills TJ Perkins back in this match. They tried to get across the point that these guys are both veterans and they got that across by doing plenty of countering. The countering also helped make every move seem like it was earned so they didn’t have to do some crazy move to get a big reaction they just jockeyed for the advantage and when either man hit a move it seemed like they at least put some work into it. These of the kind of matches I like in the midcard. It won’t blow your mind but it is a bunch of fun to watch.

RockNES Monsters vs Fighting Taylor Boys: ***
The RockNES Monsters went all heel up in this match. While it wasn’t completely apparent in the beginning that they would be going there by the end it was without question which side of the face/heel divide they would be on. Chuck Taylor is criminally underrated I think. He has the skills to get it done in the ring and as a good deal of charisma. The fact that the fans love him made the hot tag get a good pop and be quite satisfying.

I think the new direction of The RockNES Monsters will make them fresh they didn’t quite do a great job in this match. That was a big hindrance of the match IMO. The fans really didn’t know what to do with them so when you have a crowd that wants to be electrified as possible but too confused I guess to help the match it hurts things. I feel it is going to be difficult for Yuma to pull off being a heel if he can’t shake his fun-loving attitude. He has the body of an underdog for sure but there is no reason that should make it so he can’t pull it off. Plus they as a tandem had a few moments of awkwardness. I have no doubt though that once they can find their footing as heels they can be revitalized and start going at it with the SSB.

Brian Cage vs Eddie Edwards: ***1/2
Another good match by Cage here. How PWG can turn a young guy into a main eventer with only a show a month and ROH can’t seem to do it with multiple shows a month beats me? Probably has something to do with Reseda having a room that is full of the most energetic crowd in America and ROH unsure how to book there wrestlers. Brian Cage is a FUCKING MACHINE and Eddie Edwards is one of the top independent talents out there. Somehow I’m not too surprised these guys put together a really good match.

Kevin Steen vs Willie Mack: ***3/4
I don’t know how Brian Cage got me thinking about him after a damn fine match but he did. He interferes about of the way through the match, takes out Kevin Steen and then next thing you know he is taking off Willie Mack’s head with a discus lariat. And then he pretty much just leaves staking that whoever comes back after him kicking ass he wants to take on and get that strap. That was me pretty much saying I’m okay with Brian Cage interfering since it the grand scheme it has a purpose.

Kevin Steen cut the goofiness out in this match which made a ton of sense since the last time these two wrestled Willie Mack was able to upset him. He was not taking the chance of that happening again and takes it right to Mack. Steen wanted to show Willie Mack that he was the alpha-male. So when Willie Mack takes all this punishment and still gets up the crowd begins to turn more in favor of him. The chants of “KILL STEEN KILL” that filled the room in the beginning of the match were trounced by the “LET’S GO WILLIE” chants. I thought the near falls were well done and led to a sweet ending that I wish would have been a little less quick. That said seeing the Psychodriver was great way to end the match I just wish Steen held Mack a little longer for the epicness of that move to sink in. Doesn’t really hurt anything though.

B-Boy vs Drake Younger:***
These guys went to town. Yes there was lots of no selling but in the end the action was good and I didn’t feel offended like some people. I also wasn’t blown away because These guys just got right up from moves that were killers and it made so many moves feel unimportant. Drake’s no selling annoyed me so bad because he was trying to like do “hulking up” or “fighting spirit” and he slapped the mat and stood straight up like nothing happened. That kinda upset me. Since the crowd was into it and they did do a lot of fun stuff it doesn’t end up being that bad. But I can see why it would make people really upset.

Michael Elgin vs. Sami Callihan:***3/4
I thought this was better than the previous match. Hard hitting, smash mouth, in your face wrestling. Like Rah said, Callihan was doing is regular thing. I really don’t have much else to say

Super Smash Bros. vs Future Shock vs The Young Bucks (Ladder Match):****3/4
I don’t know what I just watched besides my new MOTY. HOLY BALLS!!!

Overall:Another amazing show from PWG. While DTABM had 2 MOTYC and a sold undercard, Threemendous III had the craziest ladder match I have ever seen and a solid undercard so I'll just consider them both equally amazing BUYS.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Enlightenedone9, your take on Brian's interference does shed some light to an angle I never saw and possibly change my feel over the match falling "flat". I suppose I was taking it from a completely in the moment reflection without looking at the future that Steen and Cage would share. Still, Willie is my boy and I was hoping for that interference to happen post-match. Meh, nothing at all serious.

Favourite part of the ladder match? Mine was Rick Knox by far and away. You speak about PWG building a main eventer out of Cage but screw that, PWG built the most badass yet realistic referee in wrestling today.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Copy/paste from some other place:

Super Dragon did a Q&A on the PWG board today. Here are some interesting things from it:

- PWG is basically a two man operation.
- He says he books, does the video editing and dvd editing, and video previews.
- Excalibur does all the graphics on the site/dvd covers/ dvd menus/shirts, as well as running the site. He also does the press releases for the site.
- He doesn't watch wrestling at all.
- PWG iPPV is nearly impossible. All of the guys under contracts with other feds can't be used. So that wouldn't be a very good PWG show.
- There likely will never be PWG shows on the road because he doesn't want to work with other people due to previous problems.
- He has tried to book Kenny Omega for a year but can't because of his schedule.
- PWG Sells Out 3 will be out in November.
- He has never liked any women matches in PWG ever.
- He had Angle/Danielson book but TNA pulled Angle saying he wasn't taking indy bookings.
- He isn't really a fan of Teddy Hart. Jack Evans burned them on several flights over the years.
- He says he tries to bring the Briscoes back but they aren't too interested in it right now.
- No chance for a PWG wrestling school.
- Paul London has some issue with someone in PWG.
- Low Ki is very difficult to work with. He's set in his ways and doesn't like to lose. One of his biggest wrestling accomplishments was having him lose to Claudio.
I just love this guy.
