Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

1. Semi-Finals: Team ROH vs. Team Sendai Girls

The best opener of the year, unless I’m forgetting something. Team ROH’s match finally delivers in this round, after two somehow lackluster affairs. Nick Jackson was so OTT here, hilarious performance. Such a great prick heel, you just want to smash his birdlike head like a melon. The Sendai Girls seriously rocked, they were so believable in beating the crap out of Team ROH, and the crowd was going crazy for them. What I especially liked, is the feeling out process was thrown out of window, and we got 15 minutes of exciting sprinting. But nothing too spotty or too obviously contrived. Great match. I think the Girls deserve to reach Finals next year. And the Bucks… The best tag team in the business.


2. Semi-Finals: F.I.S.T. vs. The Spectral Envoy

ICARUS! /review.


3. Ophidian vs. Saturyne

Such a fun sprint. Ophidian is all about business, he’s dead serious in both showing off and trying to beat the hell out of Saturyne. She, on the other hand, is trying to hang with men, and she’s holding nothing back. Simple and effective story, and the action was fast paced and very exciting. Saturyne botched one move, but it actually helped the match, IMO. This was damn good, I’m shocked, honestly.


4. 10-Way Tag Team Gauntlet

Usually, I strongly dislike gauntlets, but this one was very well done. The peculiar mix of the regular roster, rookies and legends was a lot of fun. It’s 37 minutes long, but it feels like 15 really. And that’s always great. Good stuff all around, and those two huge guys from the Corporation Domination need to be used more often. Freaks.


5. 3.0, Ebessan & Takoyakida vs. Colt Cabana, Johnel Sanders, Darkness Crabtree & The Swamp Monster

I can’t rate this. No one can.


6. Manami Toyota & Kaori Yoneyama vs. Commando Bolshoi & Tsubasa Kuragaki

Fucking A! Sure, I was expecting a good match, but these four Joshis blew my mind here. Another match with simple storytelling, but it was so effective, and the action was so crisp, and fun, and exciting… Just beautiful. These gals know how to wrestle, they know how to work the crowd, how to express their characters and how to tell little but meaningful stories about their strengths and weaknesses. Tsubasa was the true star of the match. Immense stuff. The whole weekend peaked here, IMO.


7. Jigsaw vs. Tadasuke

After Tadasuke’s beautiful performance against Kingston, I was really looking forward to this match. And it delivered. This was your classic power vs. speed story, Jigsaw’s selling was really good, it put over Tadasuke’s vicious offense as a clear danger. The ref stoppage ending ruled, we need much more of it in wrestling. #realism


8. Finals: The Spectral Envoy vs. Team ROH

So damn frustrating. I feel like shit. Why? Well, the match was damn good until the last few minutes. There were two long face-in-peril segments on the Envoy members, Team ROH was bringing it, the Bucks were awesome as usual, the excitement was top notch, etc. But then the Batiri and Delirious interfere, and the big chaotic brawl happens. Now, I’m fine with all of it, but then there’s this ridiculously STUPID spot where UMB superplexes Matt Jackson on like 10 guys standing ringside and WAITING (that was some baaad kayfabing) for Matt to land on them. I fucking hate spots like that, because the setup is impossible to pull off in a convincing and compelling manner, I mean those guys waiting ringside ALWAYS use embarrassing punches because they have to be careful about a guy landing on them. The same type of spot completely ruined the SOTF finals last year too. That spot just screamed “spot monkey”. I’m sorry, but I can’t suspend my disbelief that much. But all in all, I appreciate the match, it was entertaining, the Envoy’s victory was a true feel good moment.


Well, great show. I thought only PWG and DGUSA can pull off something like this, but I was wrong. Two fucking GREAT matches, four good ones, a funny atomicos pleasure, and the main event was entertaining after all, despite being bad in terms of star rating. This was a great trip, the whole tournament rocked. So. Much. Variety.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

CHIKARA "Talent Borrows, Genius Steals" Season 5 Finale Review

Quick Thoughts: Since I did PWG, I thought it'd be fun for me to review the last CHIKARA show I saw before I stopped following them. Underwhelming show but fun as you know what you get with CHIKARA; I thought the buildup between Kingston/Sweeney was well done but the match itself failed to deliver and most of the card was decent; I'd argue that the HydraLock Challenge was the best part of the show lmao and I was the BIGGEST Incoherence mark back then, just thought I let that be known.

Los Ice Creams & Kenji Fukimoto vs. Twiggy, Equinox & Retail Dragon- **3/4
Chucky T vs. Ricochet- ***1/2
Jagged vs. Player Uno- **
The Colony vs. Rhett Titus, Pelle Primeau & Shane Hagadorn- **
Josh Daniels vs. Max Boyer- **3/4 (They were calling spots loud as hell lol)
Lance Steel vs. Trik Davis- **1/2
Incoherence, Deliriouscito & Hallowickedcito vs. B-Rage, Hydra, Crossbones & U-Black- ***1/2
Mike Quackenbush & Shane Storm vs. Team FIST- ***1/4
Eddie Kingston vs. Larry Sweeney (Strap Match)- **3/4-***

I for Matt Hardy (A Matt Hardy guy since '99):

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Boiling Point 2012 Review:

Roderick Strong vs. Mike Mondo: ***1/2
What a fantastic opener. Strong needs to get more matches like this with the new guys, like the interviewr said on his recent shoot - he's the perfect guy to make new guys looks great. This match was great opener with stiff shots, great pace and overall super-enjoyable match.

Antonio Thomas vs. Vinny Marseglia vs. QT Marshall vs. Matt Taven: **3/4
It was fun for it should've was. Taven looked really good here as always, it's a shame he signed with WWE, he could've easily be the next Eddie Edwards IMO.

ROH World Television Champion Adam Cole vs. Brutal Bob: *3/4

Michael Elgin vs. Charlie Haas: *1/2

The Briscoe Brothers vs. Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs: ***
The Briscoes saved the iPPV for me because they're so damn entertaining and they were the pefrect guys to had a match after these two god-awful bouts. The match wasn't special or something but still enjoyable. Corino's in such a great shape, props to him.

2 Out of 3 Falls Match - Tommaso Ciampa vs. Jay Lethal: ***3/4+
Thank you Ciampa. What a warrior. Liked it even more now, best Ciampa's match in ROH and Lethal is such a great worker.

Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis vs. Eddie Edwards and Sara Del Rey: **3/4
They kinda missed the point of the match and SDR didn't showcased her abilty at all and the 99% was about Edwards and Bennett. Thought the match could've been much better with amazing moments with SDR, Maria and Bennett but it didn't happend. Eddie showd some personailty here.

Anything Goes Match for the ROH World Championship - Kevin Steen(c) vs. Eddie Kingston: ***3/4
Great match and I loved the story personailly. ROH really have to book Kingston more as they said they will in the newswire after the show, he's one of the best right now IMO (in the Independent scena, of course). I think this match should've regular since both are awesome with telling a story and Steen proved once again that he's great in the ring at GBH... If Steen wins at Final Battle I'd to see a rematch and this time the match will be regular.

Overall the show wasn't great but still it was a fun iPPV with good crowd. Def felt like a B show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

IWA East Coast: Masters Of Pain 2012

Black Hawk Down Match: Danny Havoc vs. Ron Mathis
- **
- Cool concept for the Black Hawk Down deathmatch. Two corners had light tube boards, and two had a fan with light tubes replacing the blades. (I believe Drake and Pondo used something similar in MOP09.). This was my first time seeing Mathis. Guy looks like a guy who's spend time in jail with those tattoos. Nothing memorable here. Passable. Felt too short, but there really isn't much that could have happened IMO.

Not So Friendly Skies Match: Matt Tremont vs. Devon Moore

- ***
- Started off kind of boring, but once they got in the ring it got better. Felt too short and rushed though.

West Virginia Power Outage Match: Mad Man Pondo vs. Viper

- It was a Pondo match. I had low expectations. Not bad, but not memorable.

Nightmare On Campbell's Creek Match: Masada vs. Spidar Boodrow
- Spidar looks like the guy who would have 'broken in' Ron Mathis in prison. These guys beat the fuck out of each other. Easily the best match of the first round. Only thing I didn't like was the commentary.

Fans Bring The Weapons: Semi-Finals - Matt Tremont vs Danny Havoc
- not a bad match, but i'm personally not a fan of Tremont and Havoc working together. There was a really sick spot/angle that showed barbed wire really stuck in Havoc's back.

Panes In The Glass Match: Semi-Finals - Masada vs Viper

- ****
- Pretty good match here. Seems like it was cut short due to a huge cut on Masada's leg. Nothing really to say about it.

Not Your Mom's Leftovers Match: TJ Phillips vs. Smokey C

- Won't lie. skipped this match. no fucks given

Double Hell Match: Finals - Matt Tremont vs Masada

- Tremont took a pretty nasty head bump in this match after the barbed wire ropes gave way. Tremont took a lot (A LOT)of punishment in this match. really deserves the win.

First of all, I watched this with the commentary on. Yeahhh...Don't do that. I don't follow IWA East Coast regularly, so I don't know who these guys are, but they make a team of Booker T, Mike Adamle, and Taz seem enjoyable in comparison. They were nowhere near the ring and couldn't see most things, so they just made a lot of stupid comments and had a conversation not relating to the match, and it sounded really unprofessional IMO. But besides that, this is probably the worst MOP show ever, but it's still pretty good. Although it lacked the creativity and names of all previous years, I'd still recommend it.
