Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ONly small problem I have with those covers is the Briscoe picture on the spine, why couldn't either pick a better shot or at least put it at the bottom of the spine so his legs don't just cut off in mid air. Other than that finallt an improvement back so decent covers.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH - Tag Title Classic II


Adam Cole vs. Kenny King - **1/4

Colt Cabana vs. Mike Bennett - **

Trial Series - Match 5
Andy Ridge vs. Christopher Daniels - **1/4
Probably the best Ridge looked in his matches, no shock with Daniels.

The Briscoes vs. Kevin Steen & Steve Corino - **3/4

Four Corner Survival
El Generico vs. Rhett Titus vs. Grizzly Redwood vs. Ricky Reyes - **

Kyle O’Reilly vs. TJ Perkins - ***1/4 - ***1/2
About the same as their match in EVOLVE, would love for TJP to come back more often.

Roderick Strong vs. Sonjay Dutt - **1/2

ROH World Tag Team Titles
The Kings of Wrestling vs. The American Wolves - ****1/4
Them going on for a little too long is about the only problem with this.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Just watched the first Pro Wrestling RESPECT DVD. It completely exceeded my expectations.

A really fun show that was very well-presented, for something made on a tight budget. Some unique ideas being showcased and lots of 3D characters being established. Highly recommended for ROH fans.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I just watched Tag Title Classic II as well, but it looks like I enjoyed the show a little more than King. I was surprised and actually thoroughly enjoyed the Briscoes vs. Steen/Corino match, it's a really fun brawl turned wrestling match. Still don't know what to think of Bennett, I feel like he's getting on the job training, but could be good down the road. The Trial Series match was definitely the best since the first with Cabana, which again is no surprise but I had a good time watching it, it was really smooth. KC's right about O'Reilly/TJP, it was about the same as Evolve and a good time. I thought Roddy/Dutt was almost as good as their Manhattan Mayhem III match, and didn't overstay it's welcome. Wolves/Kings is long, but I thought it just had a couple awkward spots and had a good crowd but needed a great one, I'd go about ****1/4-1/2.

The show's not blowaway but makes for really enjoyable viewing, I recommend it.

Speaking of dream tags, is anyone gonna try to get that Wolves/MCMG 2CW DVD? Looks like it starts shipping tomorrow.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

DGUSA Way Of The Ronin

CIMA vs Chuck Taylor
**3/4

Johnny Gargano vs Drake Younger
**

Jimmy Jacobs vs Brodie Lee vs Silas Young vs Kyle O'Reilly vs Mike Quakcenbush vs Rich Swann
***

Dragon Kid vs Arik Cannon
**1/2

Ricochet vs Gran Akuma
**

Bryan Danielson vs Jon Moxley
****+

SHINGO, YAMATO & Akira Tozawa vs Naruki Doi, Masato Yoshino & BxB Hulk
****1/2

Overall:
Decent show up until the awesome double main event. Danielson is just off the charts greatness in his match and the 6 man is one of the best 6 mans they've done in years. Went maybe slightly too long but it didn't hurt it much.


Spoiler for Danielson/Moxley review:
Bryan Danielson vs Jon Moxley - DGUSA Way Of The Ronin
If Mike hasn't already seen this (and I'd be pretty suprised if has yet) then I'm pretty certain he's gonna love because it's an awesome Danielson performance, just immense. Moxley probably has the best showing of his overhyped carear but god damn Danielson is just on fire here. Moxley had a match the night before with Jacobs that was awesome but entirely for Jacobs. I think I called that the best single showing for one guy in a match all of last year. Jimmy had that honour for all of one night it seems (well 5 months actually because that aired on PPV and then it took 5 months to release the 2nd night). The match goes under 20 minutes and I think it's only a little of 15 actually. The file I've ripped of it says 23 minutes and that's got the Danielson speech on after too, which btw is my favourite Danielson speech of all of his Indy comeback speeches from last year. Jacobs is awesome in it too. Danielson just goes full pelt from the get go, ala his matches with Morishiam. Elbows, kicks and dives all in the first few minutes and crazy mad man Danielson might be my favourite Danielson persona when he's on it. Moxley regains the upper hand by sending Danielson into the ring post and suprisingly Danielson blades for Moxley. Really suprised that WWE were ok with him doing that on an Indy show whilst he was their US champ. It's not a big blade in the end though but I did think it was one of those cases where blood did add to the match. Moxley's offense was actually pretty decent for all his flaws and he worked over the arm reasonably well. Didn't go anywhere but I think it was more of a case of the way the finish went rather than a flaw. Danielson's kicks throughout the match were just holy shit levels of amazing. There's a series where Moxley is in a seat and he's rocking back and forward in the chair into each kick and it looked awesome. Haven't seen Danielson's kicks look this great in a long time. Moxley aint no Morishiam obviously but Danielson's performance is up there with the Morishima matches for me. Finish is brilliant with a bloodied Danielson just screaming "He's gonna get his FUCKING head kicked in" with emphasis on the fucking. I'm guessing a part of him loved being able to say that in a match again. Danielson's stomps then just look fucking lethal and it merges beautifully into the lebell lock. The 2 EVOLVE matches might be slightly better but this is the best Danielson showing on his Indy run last year for sure imo. There's an awesome 6 man which follows it which might be the best DG 6 man outside of ROH or Japan that they've done.

****+

Ignore the references to other people in there, it was written for another forum.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I'm actually liking it a lot, besides the main event. The main event does nothing for me.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Besides Briscoes/WGTT and maybe ANX/Kings I have no interest in the show. And I haven't seen anyone that says they love the main event.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I don't like ANX vs. Briscoes and WGTT vs. Briscoes was very underwhelming last time. WGTT just doesn't have it
