Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

1. Quarter-Finals: Sami Callihan vs. TJ Perkins

This match’s beginning – five fucking stars! Very good match overall, their styles meshed well, Sami was his usualf madman self, and TJP delivered his ninja awesomeness. Perfect opener.


2. Quarter-Finals: Adam Cole vs. Eddie Edwards

You used to see Eddie Edwards being serious all the time, right? Well, check this match out, and you’ll be fucking shocked. This was Eddie having a time of his life, really, this was an awesome watch. On the other side – EVIL ADAM COLE! ‘Nuff said. I believe this was the most underrated match of the weekend. Excellent, excellent stuff, Cole is a fucking in-ring genius.


3. Quarter-Finals: Brian Cage vs. Michael Elgin

Well, this was a solid match with a simple story of two larger guys killing each other with plenty of bombs. And then STEEN happened, and I rate this match being good because of it. Jawbreaker mentioned it, you gotta give Elgin credit, his finishing combos look super believable. This was no exception, he fucking destroyed BCT.


4. Quarter-Finals: Roderick Strong vs. Ricochet

Roddy works great against small(er) guys, and this was no exception. Good match here, but nothing special. I blame the lack of focus. Roddy was trying to kill Dicochet’s back, but it went nowhere eventually.


5. Team Statutory vs. Willie Mack, B-Boy & Drake Younger

Seabs and Bubz covered this match well. It felt forced. Davey is not funny. I mean, he can be sometimes, so what the hell… But Kyle is not funny at all. He SCREAMS super serious jiu-jitsu intensity, and he’s good at it. This? This felt forced. “Look at us, we’re sleazy, bla-bla-bla…” and shit like that. And the in-ring work was full of super fake spots. Which means an automatic DUD rating. But I gotta say, I enjoyed the match somehow, and I understand the ratio behind the booking. This show needed a comedy break. So, this served it’s purpose. Drake Younger was a true BOSS here, I’m glad he’s so over with the fans. And Davey keeps putting over a younger talent in PWG (Elgin and Mack), so kudos there.


6. Semi-Finals: Adam Cole vs. Sami Callihan

EVIL ADAM COLE! Finally a match with two guys having a rich backstory. Their CZW rivalry is well known, and Excalibur mentioned it. The backstory played a significant role in the match, because Cole managed to block Callihan’s big and dangerous moves. And they brought hatred. Heel Cole is a fucking cerebral assassin. The ending fucking rocked too. Third win for Cole, third different finish. The crowd was shocked, no one was expecting the end there. Damn good match, folks.


7. Semi-Finals: Michael Elgin vs. Ricochet

This is also why PWG fucking rocks, because this is the third ROH vs. DGUSA interpromotional match. God bless PWG, because this the only place where you can see Ricochet wrestling against Steen, Roddy and Elgin. Anyway, what a match here! The power vs. speed story was great, and the crowd ate it up. Elgin throwing Ricochet around like nothing was an awesome visual. Ricochet did his insane stuff too (THAT DIVE!), of course.


8. The Young Bucks & Brian Cage vs. Rick Knox, Kevin Steen & El Generico

The MOTW. Amazing x100. /review


9. Finals: Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin

I love how Guerrilla books relatively short ‘n’ sweet BOLA finals now. The whole segment lasted 20 minutes. These guys wasted no time, and some bombs were thrown right away. No feeling out process, and I love it. Good, intense shit right there. Steen and Excalibur were bringing it on commentary. Enter Tamina Snuka (obligatory), Adam Pearce, Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler references and name drops. Awesome. Anyway, this match was very good. These two didn’t have a backstory a la Steen/Generico from the 2011 finals, but they managed to bring some quality anyway. Both guys were awesome, I gotta say. Cole wins in grand fashion and shocks everyone. Great post match promo. Owns Steen like a little bitch. Runs away with the trophy AND with the strap. EVIL ADAM COLE! What a fucking wrestler.


Amazing show, I was really entertained. PWG is all you need.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Shine 1

1. Kimberly vs Veda Scott

2. Tina San Antonio vs Santana
Santana took a really awkward bump here where she did a moonsault/lionsault thing and her head/neck landed on Tina's knees...

3. Allysin Kay & Taylor Made vs Tracy Taylor & Su Yung

4. Cherry Bomb vs Christina Von Eerie

5. Jayme Jameson vs Reby Sky

7. Rain vs Nikki Roxx

8. Sara Del Rey vs Jazz

Beside the girls I'd seen already, Plenty of girls with good bodies and good looks but other than that they all have the same thing in common in that they just need more experience. That and I hate the whole WWNLive look of iPPVs. Theres this certain darkness to most of there shows which I just hate.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Rain had a match go to ***? holy crap. Good for Roxx to pull that out of her.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG “BOLA Night 2”

Sami Callihan vs. TJP:***

-So Sami is still the Wolf Man and TJP is a fricking wizard
-TJP got more offense than I was expecting
-Really good opener

Adam Cole vs. Eddie Edwards:***1/2
-Adam Cole says “Suck My Dick” and it is awesome
-Good action and unlike Eddie’s match night one it doesn’t feel like it is a match you can shove in ROH because of Evil Adam Cole

Michael Elgin vs. Brian Cage: **3/4
-Two big men going at it but it kinda fell flat for me
-Elgin can be good (though his first two matches haven’t been) and Cage can be good but they are both a little too inexperienced to put a good match together

Ricochet vs. Roderick Strong:***1/2
-I really enjoyed this match
-If you put Strong against a smaller guy you are bound to get something good
-Ricochet keeps proving how good of a wrestler he really is

Team Statutory vs. Drake Younger/B-Boy/Willie Mack:**
-People have already said it but it seems forced and it doesn’t really work

Adam Cole vs. Sami Callihan:***1/2
-These guys can put on a better match than this but they did a quality job here
-This a dynamic that they are more use to working than most other people
-Sami is massively over and mix that with the PWG crowd seeing this side of Adam Cole for the first time and they pretty much can do anything and it would be a solid match just because of the crowd

Ricochet vs. Michael Elgin:***3/4
-Ricochet puts on another very good match with another power wrestler
-First Elgin match to deliver for me during BOLA
-I really enjoy big man against little man matches and they did it very well

Rick Knox/El Generico/Kevin Steen vs. The Young Bucks/Brian Cage:****
-The fact that this started as a handicap match added to the match
-The reunion between El Generico and Kevin Steen was AMAZING
-Rick Knox shows that just because you aren’t a wrestler doesn’t mean you can’t be a great worker
-I don’t think this was the blowoff to The Young Bucks and Rick Knox but if it was it was a hell of an ending

Adam Cole vs. Michael Elgin: ***3/4
-Fitting ending to the tournament
-Very good match
-Elgin didn’t impress me through is first half of matches but he was able to put it together in his last two
-Cole impressed the entire tournament and this was no different

OVERALL: If you can only afford to buy one or two PWG shows neither night of BOLA would be the best option honestly. That being said this is the better of the two nights and has lots of good stuff. The thing with PWG is that a lot of their shows offer a lot of good stuff but other times they add some SPECTACULAR stuff along with a ton of good stuff. On this show you have a solid opener, three good Cole matches, two good Ricochet matches, and an excellent match containing four of the best wrestlers on the planet and the best referee today. That's enough to earn a recommendation.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

CZW presents "Deja Vu 6" from Indianapolis, IN held on November 5, 2011.

8-Man Elimination, featuring: Alex Colon, Sugar Dunkerton, Simon Sezz, Aaron Epic, Aaron McCormick, Stitch Sypher, H-Zaya & BJ Whitmer *1/2
Normally I'm a fan of these multi-man spotfest but this was just a disaster. So many botches, so many weak/fake looking shit. There were also like 3 or 4 ref botches, unfortunately that would continue throughout the night.

Latin Dragon vs. Ryan McBride **
Latin Dragon is still very green obviously but Ryan McBride got a decent match out of him.

Jonathan Gresham vs. Drew Gulak **1/2
Wasn't looking forward to this match at all but I ended up really enjoying it.

AR Fox vs. Uhaa Nation **3/4
Pretty much the same as their other 100 matches they did against eachother lol. Didn't bother me though as I'm a big fan of both of these.

STREET FIGHT: DJ Hyde vs. Sami Callihan **3/4
DJ's chest was completely fucked up by all the chops from Sami. Hard hitting match but I'm not really a fan of DJ's work.

Messiahs Of The New Age (Ricky Shane Page & Dustin Rayz) vs. Irish Airborne ***
Started off really good, ending was ridiculous and made Dustin/Ricky look very weak. Jake gets screwed by Dave with a kick to the head, then gets a finisher from both Ricky and Shane, they proceed to both pin him at the same time and Jake still kicks out? Ok..
Also pretty sure the ref screwed up this finish aswell.

Devon Moore vs. Drake Younger vs. Scotty Vortekz **
Decent match, Devon Moore is just such a boring champion..

No-Rope Barbed Wire Eliminator: Matt Tremont vs. Necro Butcher vs. Danny Havoc vs. MASADA ***
Good deathmatch, had some nice spots in it like Danny getting bodyslammed on a barbed wire board that was set up against the back of Tremont. Unfortunately the finish of this match was also screwed up by the ref.

Overal a decent show but I wouldn't recommend it. The crowd was completely dead until AR Fox and Uhaa Nation got them going. And the show was filled with botches from the wrestlers and referees, more than usual which took away from the viewing pleasure imo..

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Chikara - A Death Worse Than Fate

1) Ophidian vs Green Ant ~ **3/4

2) El Hijo Del Ice Cream vs Saturyne ~ **

3) Fire Ant & Soldier Ant vs Dasher Hatfield & Mark Angelosetti ~ ***1/4

4) Brodie Lee vs Jigsaw ~ ***1/4

5) Colt Cabana vs Kobald ~ *3/4

6) Eddie Kingston, Shane Matthews, Scott Parker, & Greg Iron vs Tim Donst, Jakob Hammermeier, Obariyon, & Kodama ~ ***3/4

7) Sara Del Rey vs Archibald Peck ~ ***1/2

8) Chikara Tag Team Championship:
Icarus & Chuck Taylor(c) vs Ultramantis Black & Hallowicked ~ **1/2

A much needed injection of fun to follow a semi-lackluster opener in The Thirteenth Hat. This show captured that Chikara goodness. Majority of the show was quality.

~ Only real knock I have on it was the majority of the main event was SO basic. In the third fall things kicked into gear and the Delirious turn on UMB riled up the crowd. So it ended well. That's a plus.

~ Another stellar Atomicos match. Chikara is king of the multimans as we all know.

~ Del Rey vs Peck was a very interesting contest. Loved it. Peck really is a one of a kind worker. He can do so much within the ring.

~ Brodie Lee continues to prove that he might be the best big man monster in wrestling today.

~ Colony vs Throwbacks was a perfect way to bring Touchdown into the mix. He's fit in the company like a glove.

~ Colt/Kobald was what you expected. Kobald is green, but Colt did his awesome comedy stylings to balance it out.

~ Ophidian/Green Ant was solid. I expected better, however. Ophidian's new "snake style" has already grown on me. I blame Hieracon for sucking which is what lead me to doubt Ophidian. I'll never do that again. He's legit.

~ Saturyne vs El Hijo, short and sweet. Saturyne...that girl is very athletic. She's capable. A good start for her future.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
