EVOLVE 17 Review:

Johnny Gargano vs. Jon Davis - ***1/2
What an awesome opener. I'm a big WWE-Style fan so no surprise i enjoyed the match more than others. Awesome David vs Goliath as expected, it was probably John Davis' best showing, he looked like a totall monster and Gargano was Gargano. His heel-turn was great and it was a great way to do this. Pefrect way to open the show.

Lince Dorado vs. Jigsaw - **3/4
What you'd expect from these two. Fun spotfest, nothing more nothing less, Jigsaw is kinda better than this IMO, would love to see Gargano vs Jig or Davis vs Jig in the future.

Marti Belle vs. Christina Von Eerie - Skipped.

The Scene vs. D.U.F. - **
Meh. Calliahn and Cnanoon were great in Bushido: Code Of The Warrior, why it always has to involve Pinkie?..

Sami Callihan vs. MASADA - N/R

The Gentlemens Club vs. Rich Swann & The Super Smash Bros. - ***1/2
Don't really have too much to say about this match, just a really fun with lots of spots and non-stop action.

Ricochet vs. AR Fox - ***1/4
Ricochet is sooooooo bad the mic. Man, he makes 2009 Roderick Strong looks like CM Punk in comparison. He looks so goofy when he's talking, why Gabe gave him so much mic-time in this show? anywho the match was great, but something was missing there and they didn't played the whole "wannebe" thing as good as they could.

El Generico vs. Samuray Del Sol - ***3/4
My god Samuray Del Sol is absolutely amazing. The stuff he's doing in the ring is just.. wow. The match is great and IMO their best one. Just an amazing fast-paced match with zero botches which is amazing considering what they did in the ring. Must-watch IMO.

Overall it was a really good iPPV, EVOLVE and DGUSA are super underrated for some reason.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

These are couple of matches from a comp. I have that I thought I'd write up reviews for.

Barbed Wire Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match: JC Bailey vs. Nate Webb - IWA-MS (4/18/03):***

This is a match I was really looking forward to. Sadly it wasnít really what I was expecting. That is probably my fault since I hadnít really seen much of Bailey or Webb and was hoping for a really sweet match. What I got was a match with a lot of spots that needed a lot of setting up and didnít look as awesome as they needed to be in this sort of match. The fact that they started this match by trading holds hurt the match in my opinion. They didnít really build a match around the idea of them being two good wrestlers in a hardcore environment. It also wasnít a match where they are Jr. Heavyweight hardcore wrestlers but also good wrestlers from a technical standpoint as well. So we get a lot of moves and though the last spot looks sick it doesnít make for a great match. I do have to give definite points for the effort of these two men and thatís why the rating of this match is where it is.

Homicide vs. Trent Acid-CZW(May 10, 2003): ****

Through 15 minutes I thought this match was the balls. I still thought this match was awesome just a little less awesome. The match starts with Trent Acid doing some shitty dance, I donít know the hell was going on, and then Homicide just comes at him and knocks some seriousness into Acid. Homicide knocks Acid to the floor sets him in a chair runs into the ring and BOOM Tope Con Hilo. Sets the tone for the next 14 minutes. Super-fast, hard hitting, juniorsí action. Acid is able to take advantage of Homicideís mistake and he changes his attitude knowing that if he doesnít he is going to get his shit rocked. There are lots of other awesome exchanges one notable one being Acid using his speed to get the advantage on Homicide and hit a couple of vicious Yakuza kicks. Also Homicide locking in the STF late, TWICE, before time ran out was awesome. If the match ended the match with the draw I actually think I would have liked this match better with it being an incredible 15 minutes with Homicide trying to use the STF to end it late but Acid just having to hold on for a little bit. Then both men agreed to go another 5 minutes. This makes no sense for Acid since he is the heel that just managed to get out of this match without losing. That peace of nonsense took me completely out of things. I didnít see any point in it and the after match stuff didnít do anything to show Acid wasnít a jerk. It doesnít make sense. And after the break there is nothing that is engrossing. The ending plays off the ending of the first 15 minutes so I dug that but the break took away from the match as a whole. Truly sad the way Acidís life went. He was very gifted and I believe in some alternate universe he could have been either headlining indies right now or on the roster of TNA. Homicide just needs the right opponent and to be motivated and when those things happen he is solid as can be. The problem is getting both of those things, especially the motivation part.

Chikara - 3/25/12 - Chikara Grand Championship
Brodie Lee vs. Eddie Kingston - ****

A couple of good matches showcasing his feuds in Chikara with Claudio & Hallowicked and his final match vs. Kingston are the picks of the matches of this comp, but the real highlight is the fun shoot conducted by Kingston.

ROH - Caged Hostility

Jay Lethal vs. Adam Page - ***

Mike Mondo vs. QT Marshall - *

Battle of North Carolina
The Bravado Brothers (Lancelot & Harlem) vs. Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander - ***1/2

Mike Posey vs. Jeff Neal - **

Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin) vs. House Of Truth (Roderick Strong & Michael Elgin) - **1/4

Proving Ground
Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly - ***1/2

Steel Cage War

The Briscoes (Jay & Mark) and Rhett Titus vs. SCUM (Kevin Steen, Steve Corino, & Jimmy Jacobs) - **3/4

Show evened out with a surprisingly good opener, another good O’Reilly/Cole match and the home teams stepping up for the match of the show tempered by a horrid Mondo/Marshall match, another boring WGTT outing (though the dissension in the HOT storyline didn’t help) and a main event that disappointed.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Ricochet has never had any personality as far as mic skills go. He's simply a stellar performer. That's where he shines. Don't know if he'll ever grow into having some decent mic work.

Ah yes, Brodie Lee DVD set. Forgot about that one. That totals the number of superb comps on SMV I want to about...oh 10 now. Sami Callihan & Sara Del Rey's are still top of the list. 40 bucks + some change for shipping. Why am I lagging?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

1. Round 1: Team Sendai Girls vs. Fire Ant, Green Ant & AssailANT

Oh, yeah! This is my first meeting with the Girls, and Iím impressed. You better hold nothing back against them, otherwise Ė youíre fucked! A perfect opener. AssailANT teaming with The Colony was strange booking, but it worked.


2. Round 1: The Batiri vs. 3.0 & Gran Akuma

The Batiri are good, but Kobald is damn annoying. Ophidian brought some cool. Akuma is charismatic, thatís his biggest plus. But 3.0 is the most generic tag team in the world. Personality tabula rasa. Too damn bland and boring, and I donít care about them at all. They are a decent showmen, but they put me to sleep almost every time they wrestle. That being said, this was a good match up until the botched ref bump. The ref totally fucked up his selling and kinda ruined all the previous hard work. But nevermind the low rating, this was enjoyable, bar the ref bump stuff.


3. Round 1: Team Osaka Pro vs. F.I.S.T.

You know what you get when you book Taylor, Icarus, Ebessan and Kikutaro in a same match. This was great comedy. A lot of fun. The Osaka guys were bringing it! Lulz left, right and center. But, the true star of the match was Icarus. Damn, that heat he getsÖ Immense. Not only the comedy parts of the match were great, but the serious parts were really solid as well, so big thumbs up for this one.


4. Round 1: QuackSaw & Manami Toyota vs. CombatANT, DeviANT & Soldier Ant

An awesome match. Great storytelling in this one. Thereís a dissension between Quack and Jig, because Quack is allegedly not focused enough, he hates GEKIDO so much. On the other side, the shift trio of ants just couldnít work together, because Soldier Ant hates The Swarm, and he wants it to be done his way. Manami Toyota is still awesome. The show peaked with this match.


5. Round 1: The Throwbacks & Matt Classic vs. Team JWP

Matt Classic >>>>>>>>>> Colt Cabana. /review.


6. Round 1: The Spectral Envoy vs. The Mysterious and Handsome Stranger, Kazuaki Mihara & Tito Santana

The Stranger is by far the most over man in CHIKARA. Mihara is all about business. Tito Santana was insanely over once he finally entered the match. Heís still in a great shape. Anyway, yet another good and very enjoyable match. Kudos to The Stranger, but Mihara and his badassery totally made this match.


7. Round 1: Team ROH vs. The Faces of Pain

Ah, this was not good. Way too much stalling. And Iím not talking about that nice, psychological stalling, Iím talking about the ďwe are limitedĒ stalling. Thatís never good. Plus, the finish looked weak, poorly executed. Maria is an eye candy, though.


8. Round 1: The Extreme Trio vs. Team WWF

Solid stuff, but not main event worthy. This was mostly a nostalgia match, but mixed with your usual CHIKARA customs, of course. Who could imagine Tommy Dreamer having so much fun in the ring? The slow motion/pause stuff was funny, I gotta admit. But, the match needed more of Lynn vs. Waltman, thatís for sure.


A very entertaining show. Wouldíve been fantastic with the better last two matches, but what you gonna doÖ This is just the Night 1, and Iím already positively overwhelmed. Talking about a trip right there, folks. Five good matches, solid main event, and a lot of fun. Thumbs up for this one.

Honestly this was one of the best shows i've seen in my life, next is Seven from 2010 (Danielson last match and Danielson return match )

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Getting pumped for Black Friday online shopping!

Which websites have good Black Friday sales? I know I bought off roh store and dg usa store last year on Black Friday, both sites had good deals. Does anyone remember what (if any) black Friday sales highspots and smartmark offered?

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I sure hope rolls with the Black Friday sales. iirc last year they had a weak deal. Especially when compared to ROH. Oh how I cleaned up on ROH last year. I have nothing left to buy from them this time around. So SMV do something.
