Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

To address the whole thing with Quack, Hero said that the gimmicks guys get in Chikara make it really hard for them to get over in other companies. He spoke about Frightmare and said that the guy is a good worker but his gimmick doesn't let him develop a personality because Frightmare doesn't even speak English. He basically said that Frightmare is a gimmick that would only work in Chikara. Quack doesn't like it when his guys take booking as other characters outside of Chikara. While some guys are able to get away with it like (GulakANT and Orange errr Fire Ant) for the most part they don't take booking as different characters.

It looks like the company Wrestling is Fun is making this a little easier for some Chikara guys to get more work though. I looked it up and they have guys like the Colony, Mr. Touchdown, and some other familiar names booked there but that's still only one company.

I watched it, it's soo long so even though some of the same subjects are covered in the highspots shoot, then they get so more in dept with it all is how I feel about it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG “BOLA Night 1”
1. TJP vs. Joey Ryan:**
-Not too hot of an opener
-Joey Ryan is Joey Ryan. Gets heat when he moves his lips but drains life when wrestling

2. Roderick Strong vs. Drake Younger:***1/4
-This is what you would probably would expect but that isn’t bad
-I love watching Strong wrestle. He chops like a demon and breaks backs.
-Younger knows how to take big moves. Still interesting to see him in PWG
-Strong’s thing where he gets the guy in a torture rack position on the apron and tosses him into the turnbuckle is so brutal
-Fun match with it looking like Strong is going to kill Younger at points

3. Eddie Edwards vs. O’Reilly:***
-This is a match you could have plugged into ROH. Yet this is PWG
-Lacked much uniqueness to it. The one moment where they are both on their heads slapping each other was an exception. And that part was pretty sweet.
-They did manage to have a nice match but it seemed like it dragged and kept going on and on at some point.

4. B-Boy vs. Brian Cage: **1/2
-Not a good matchup
-Cage doesn’t carry people and should be put with much better wrestlers to help him grow
-This won’t kill Cage’s momentum but it won’t help
-B-Boy will now probably prevent me from getting excited about his matches from now on
-I don’t know think there was any real story to this match.
-This match was okay. I actually wasn’t offended but it still wasn’t good.

5. Ricochet vs. Kevin Steen: ****
-I can understand why some people didn’t like the match but I think a lot of people will really like it
-Early in the match Steen KILLS Ricochet with a powerbomb. I mean FUCK!!!
-I love the commentators making the Ricochet to El Generico references throughout the match
-It looks like the story is going to be Steen killing Ricochet
-Then there is a muddy middle where Steen bites Ricochet a few times
-Then it switches to Steen just trying to finish Ricochet since Ricochet is proving to get in some offense

6. Sami Callihan vs. Willie Mack: ***1/2
-Fun as hell
-Sami looks like a psycho in this match…in a good way
-I compare this match between Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. Willie Mack has the raw strength and is damn near impossible to keep down like he is a creation of science. Sami Callihan is wild, crazy and blood thirsty. It’s a metaphor.
-Maybe there isn’t a need for all the stiffness but I enjoy it all the same

7. El Generico vs. Adam Cole: ***3/4
-Kevin Steen does commentary for this match. It is GOLDEN
-Evil Adam Cole in PWG is going to be too awesome. El Generico being the ultimate babyface makes him the perfect opponent for Cole to show off his heelness in PWG
-There’s a German Suplex spot and may I just say that it is fantastic
-The ending of this match is the best. If you don’t agree that’s okay

8. Michael Elgin vs. Davey Richards:**3/4
-I didn’t understand this match
-This match had emotionless strike exchanges and name yelling. Win
-I don’t mind lots of MOVEZ. I don’t really get behind it though when there doesn’t seem to be any emotion behind the moves. People may not like Willie Mack for the same reason but for me when they did it you just see the rage in their faces.

OVERALL: By PWG's extremely high standards this would probably be considered a pass. There was only one match that hit the **** mark. That with 3 matches under the *** mark and it wouldn't seem worth watching. Take away that it was PWG though and it was a pretty solid show. You had a couple matches with the dudes beating the piss out of each other with Mack vs. Callihan and Strong vs. Younger. You have a real awesome match where within 3 minutes of the start of the match you aren't sure if a man has died. You get the start of Heel Adam Cole in PWG. It is so much a part of him that heel is capitalized when talking about him. While I was not into the main event at all maybe if I re-watch it down the road I'll see what some others feel or I still won't enjoy it. Weird how the worst parts of the show are the beginning,middle, and end but the stuff between them is very solid. I won't give this show the strongest recommendation, and there are certainly better PWG shows this year, but my thumb is pointing slightly up.

I was hoping there was a gap for him on Night 1 with somebody interesting. Chuck's shtick has completely run its course with me now.

They wont be bad but with all that great talent on them shows I was hoping for a lot better for him.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Well I'll be at work for all of those shows. Probably would have been doing other stuff at that time anyway too. If you don't have much going on seeing Touchdown/Quack for free is a pretty awesome deal.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Caged Hostility 2012 Review:

1. Special Challenge Match: Jay Lethal vs Adam Page: ***1/4
Really good opener, Lethal looked like a totall bad ass here and some chops were stiff. The SSP from the apron was insane. Adam Page looked like someone who can be a good addition to the midcard, would love to see more of him.

2. Mike Mondo vs QT Marshall: *3/4
These two just didn't cliked. The match started pretty good but then it became boring.

3. Battle Of North Carolina: The Bravado vs C&C Wrestling Factory: ***3/4-****
Great match, i'm not giving this full four stars since i didn't liked some parts in the match but still really good and best C&C match so far.

4. Mike Posey vs Jeff Neal: N/R
Skipped and from what Kevin Kelly said in the post-match Steve Corino went in the middle of the match so it's not worth a watch.

5. Tag Team Challenge Match: WGTT vs HoT: ***1/2
Haas and Strong were incredible, esepcially Haas. Enjoyed the match when Elgin and Benjamin were in the ring, a future house show match between them can be pretty good IMO. Everyone needs to see the pre-match stuff and Haas licking his fucking spit was gross (Haas spat on the ropes, his spit stayed there, he went to the ropes and licked it). I'm thinking about putting this on my avatar/sig but it's too disgusting :

- Davey Richards' new theme song was awesome and his promo was good too.

6. Proving Ground: Adam Cole vs Kyle O´Reilly: ***3/4
Really good match - what you should expect from these two. Wonder what they are going to do with Richards and O'Reilly.

7. Six Men Steel Cage War :SCUM vs The Briscoes & Rhett Titus: ***1/2-***3/4
Really entertaining brawl, i wish it was longer. We need to see Jay Briscoe vs Kevin Steen at some point, do it at 11th Anniversary Show, they already missed King/Benjamin dream match so i hope this won't happen here too.

Great show with hot crowd and of course - Steve Corino on commentary. you know you can't miss this.
