Dragon Gate USA: Bushido 2010
Oct 29, 2010

4 Way Freestyle ***
Homicide/Swann **
Yoshino/Aries ***1/2
Jacobs/Moxley ***1/2
Lee and Akebono/Osirian N/R
YAMATO and Tozawa/CIMA and Genki ***1/2
Hulk/Shingo ****

DG USA first iPPV. I thought they should have given the title to Shingo here, but I don't think he has fought for DG USA since this weekend. Jacobs was about a .8 on the Muta scale. He was gushing big time. Really enjoyed the Aries promo and he had a good match in his DG USA debut. I am not a fan of Homicide and really don't see much in him. Big styles clash when he tries to work with high flyers. The freestyle was an awesome spot fest, but could have gone another 2-3 minutes.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ACW - Delusions of Our Childish Days

1. Ladder Match
Portia Perez vs Rachel Summerlyn vs Jessica James vs Athena vs Angel Blue vs Lillie Mae
**
A massive mess... Cheap ladders, everything just felt rehearsed and was pretty disappointing.

2. Pierre Abernathy vs ACH
**1/2
ACH just looked so much better than Pierre here..

3. El Generico vs Robert Evans
***
Disappointing... I got the DVD for free because my wishlist disappeared when they upgraded to the new site and it had sat in my new wishlist for the sole basis of watching Generico vs Evans. Both are two of my favourite wrestlers currently but this match was just a massive disappointment.

Skipped the rest of the show because I just didn't have the time and don't have the time to watch it all. If anyone wants the DVD just drop me a PM.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

So what's the general consensus on Show of the Year for Chikara right now? I want to order just one show, but I can't quite gather if people are leaning more towards Chikarasaurus Rex or KOT Night 3.

I'd put not only Night 3 but Night 2 as well slightly ahead of C-Rex, myself.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Chikarasarus Rex was one glorious supercard, imo.

All depends what you're more in the mood for with Chikara. KOT Night 3 is always awesome since it includes the semi finals & finals + the remaining tournament workers competing in a slew of dream/"one time only" type matches. And like I said, C-Rex was a supercard including the mainstays of the Chikara roster.

Show of the year seems to be leaning towards those, but then you have some shows that include a GREAT match or two like It's How You Play The Game (Kingston vs Lee), The Ring of Wax (Touchdown vs ACH), & The Great Escape (Kingston vs Del Rey)

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread




1. Dustin Rayz vs. Rich Swann

Good, basic opener. Too short, though, needed more minutes, because Swann is really good, better than this.

**


2. Latin Dragon vs. Mr. Tofiga

DUD


3. Greg Excellent & Shane Strickland vs. OI4K (Dave Crist & Jake Crist)

**1/2


4. STREET FIGHT: Alex Colon vs. Devon Moore

Every time I watch CZW, Alex Colon is one of the standouts. I wish he gets recognition and bookings elsewhere. This match was really solid, and the finish rocked.

**1/2


5. FANS BRING THE WEAPONS for the CZW World Heavyweight Championship: MASADA © vs. Joe Gacy

Solid weaponfest. The opening minutes rocked, but then it begun to drag, and they kinda lost the steam. Gacy was botching a lot, but nothing too harsh. Overall, this was passable, there was a lot of nice hardcore brawling, MASADA continued his good 2012 run, but they didn't need to go that long. Colon and Moore accomplished the same quality in half of time.

**1/2


6. LIGHT TUBE MADNESS for the CZW World Tag Team Championship: The Nation of Intoxication (Danny Havoc & Lucky tHURTeen) © vs. Rory Mondo & Ron Mathis

The match of the show. Good combo of regular tag team wrestling and deathmatch escapades. Both teams worked very well, especially Rory Mondo.

***


7. SQUARED CIRCLE OF FEAR: DJ Hyde vs. Matt Tremont

Disappointing. These two hold a lot of grudges against each other, but they didn't really show it in big capacity here. Sure, the match was a solid ultraviolent affair, but I was expecting more depth. But hey, this is DJ Hyde we’re talking about, he’s beyond horrible, and Tremont is not good either.

**1/2


Definition of meh. With better main event, I’d recommend this, but now, nah… Skip it. The only good match was for the Tag Team Titles, everything else was average. Two matches needed to deliver to save the show, but they didin’t. Not recommended.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PCW Festive Fury 2011

Bubblegum vs. CJ Banks vs. El Ligero vs. Joey Hayes vs. Kris Travis vs. Martin Kirby
***1/2

MOB (Keith Myatt & Ruffneck) vs. The Blackpool Blonds (Axl Rage & JD Sassoon)
**3/4

Dave Rayne & Nigel McGuinness vs. Disco Madness (Mad Man Manson & Sam Bailey)
FUN

Dave Mastiff vs. Dean Allmark
***1/2

Shaun Davis vs. Val Kabious
*

T-Bone vs. Mikey Whiplash - PCW Championship
**

Overall:
Show is worth getting just for the Nigel tag which is honestly one of my favourite Indy matches ever. Just pure fun. 6 man and Allmark/Mastiff are both really good too. Shame the last 2 matches weren't very good but it's still definitely a show to get just for the fun factor. I'M DAVE RAYNE.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Chikara ~ Caught In The Spider's Den


1) Kobald vs Francis Kipland Stevens ~ **1/2


2) Dasher Hatfield & Mark Angelosetti vs 3.0 (Shane Matthews & Scott Parker) ~ **3/4


3) Ophidian vs Archibald Peck ~ ***1/2


4) Chuck Taylor vs Gran Akuma ~ **1/4


5) Sara Del Rey vs Saturyne ~ *1/4


6) Ultramantis Black vs Colt Cabana ~ **1/2


7) Mike Quackenbush, Jigsaw, Fire Ant, & Soldier Ant vs Tim Donst, Jakob Hammermeier, Obariyon, & Kodama ~ ***3/4


8) Chikara Grand Championship - Championship vs Career
Eddie Kingston(c) vs Vin Gerard ~ ***



Funny how I pump out the reviews WAY slower than my ability to watch all the shows from this year. Anyways...

A mixed bag here, but in a fine way. You get matches that you kind of expected to be pretty good, then end up being full on comedy like with UMB vs Cabana. A match you think would absolutely suck then end up being wildly fun - Kobald vs Stevens. An encounter you thought would turn out solid, but ended up being disappointing, Del Rey vs Saturyne. And a match that involves wrestlers whom I love, but still blows me away at how good it really was in Ophidian vs Archibald Peck. Rest goes unnamed since they were about what I expected from them. 3.0 vs Throwbacks was the comedy/wrestling blend we all knew it would be, Taylor vs Akuma was pretty straightforward although slightly bland, the atomicos rocked our socks off again just like the night prior (only the Reading one was a touch better) and a main event that was a good brawl for only peaking at 10 minutes in. Collectively another all around success by Chikara.

Order of Chikara shows I've reviewed "so far":

1) A Death Worse Than Fate
2) Caught In The Spider's Den
3) The Thirteenth Hat

Clearly my list for the Chikara shows will take shape upon the more reviews I pump out on here.

Nouvelle Vague.

I like how you always make us assume what show you're talking about.
