Has anyone watched the Nigel documentary yet? I'm listening to his interview with Meltzer and Alvarez and it sounds good. Apparently there were two different reasons why he didn't get signed by WWE and was released by TNA. They also said he's cure of both things now, so he could wrestle, but he doesn't want to.
Nigel Doc is incredible. Probably the best wrestling documentary I've ever seen.
If anyone cares, Dragon Gate USA is running a triple shot in California from January 25-27 next year. The bigger news is that John Morrison has been confirmed one night only for the January 25 show in Santa Maria, CA.

Recently watched the Best On The Indies: Jon Moxley DVD.
The indy style of wrestling really isn't my cup of tea but there's four matches that really, really stood out on the DVD for me are:
Moxley vs Ricochet- I really enjoyed this one. Good psychology. They worked the Bigger man vs Little dude to a tee. It was really exciting.
Moxley vs Brain Damage- fucking awesome match. Moxley made Damage look like a star! Holy shit was that match good
Moxley vs Sami Callihan- Probably the best match on the set. Just some great stuff from these two. Fantastic psychology. The spot where Moxley bites Callihan forehead open is such a simple yet effective spot.
Moxley vs Robert Anthony- A great deathmatch. I wouldn't really describe it as a deathmatch, I mean it had ultraviolent aspects in the glass panes but it wasn't really what I associate a deathmatch with. Some good psychology here. Moxley sets up a glass pane in the corner but Anthony takes a steel chair and throws it into the glass, smashing it screaming "Fuck no!" Just some great stuff. When Anthony finally goes through the glass, it's just nasty.
The other matches I could have cared less for really. Younger vs Moxley I skipped after about 10 minutes. The steel cage match with Jake Crist could have gone 20 minutes and told the same story. The damn thing went for nearly an hour. The barbwire match was a bore. The Richards match, I wanted to give it a chance but just couldn't. But those four matches, were just really impressive imo.
If anyone cares, Dragon Gate USA is running a triple shot in California from March 25-27 next year, just two weeks before the WrestleCon double shot. The bigger news is that John Morrison has been confirmed one night only for the March 25 show in Santa Maria, CA.
Moxley kind of ruled when he was on. He wasn't on all the time and his bad matches are near unwatchable but when he was firing on all cylinders (which he was right before WWE signed him, oh my god that last EVOLVE show he was on) there weren't many guys who could touch him.
He'll do okay in WWE, even if this Shield bit ends up like the Nexus and the Corre and every other heel stable WWE has done in the last several years. He's too good a talker not to.
