Thumbs up for more HDNet reviews. Vol. 3 is probably my favorite disc of the bunch & I actually love that Tyler/Nigel match, gave it *** 3/4. Slower paced but I'm a big fan. Aries/Strong, the 6 man, & Hero/KENTA are all **** in my books. Lookin forward to vol. 9 whenever I get to it...

I might try and snag another volume when they go on sale again. That Black/Nigel match wasn't doing it for me. I didn't mind the pacing and honestly if Black sold the arm better that would have helped the match tremendously for me personally. But I couldn't really get into because he didn't. When he should have been a one armed man he was just going about it like he was getting armdrags instead of his arm being ripped off as he gets slammed to the ground. Usually it doesn't irk me that much when someone doesn't sell well but when Nigel does such a great job of working the arm and for it to seem moot its hard for me to buy into an arm submission that I could totally buy if I had at all felt like those moves had done any damage. Aries/Strong, the 6-man, and KENTA/Hero were all really good. I didn't think the 6-man would be as good as I thought it ended up being. First time I had watched a match involving the American Wolves in awhile and I remembered why I enjoyed them so much when they were together as they hit the powerbomb-lungblower while one was in a triangle by Danielson.

Been a while since I saw the match so I don't really remember how he sold the armwork. We'll see in the future if it holds up. Not sure which ones you already have but I'd definitely recommend Volumes 1, 2, and 4 as well. Reviews of mine can be found at http://www.wrestlingforum.com/10548467-post3607.html , http://www.wrestlingforum.com/10599814-post3824.html , and http://www.wrestlingforum.com/11757310-post6255.html .

Thanks for the recommendations. Now I feel like I should have grabbed Vol.1 and 2 while they were on sale recently. Oh well I guess. They'll go on sale again as long as they are in stock. I remember watching that 4-way on Vol.1 when it was on TV and enjoying the crap out of it.

I hated ROH on HDNet at first. Due to the always dead crowd. I now regret not watching when I should have. It still produced good matches weekly & the roster was deeper than it is today. Honestly, it's no different from today than it was then in regards to lame crowds. So what changed? idk.

Maybe I'll look up every El Generico & Tyler Black match for the fun of it.

k I'm about to watch BOLA '12. I hadn't taken the plastic off the two DVDs since I got them a month ago, although I've watched 4 or 5 of the matches separately already.

Will give my thoughts around 6 in the morning. Lots of rum and coke next to me, too.

Adam Cole SWAG. Lets hope you enjoy his match vs Sami too.

So, fun time city. On my pursuit to rewatch all of my ROH collection I managed to nab some more from my brother. Adding:

Stalemate
Survival of the Fittest 2005
JOE VS KOBASHI
Honor Reclaims Boston
Manhattan Mayhem II (one of the best shows ever, imo )

I'll probably watch in order. Never seen the first two yet. Dying to see Aries vs Gibson I. Knowing myself I'll probably leap on over and watch Joe vs Kobashi again b/c it's like the coolest fucking match ever. Fitting too with Kobashi entering retirement.

EVOLVE 2

Brad Allen vs. Chris Dickenson:**
Pretty bland opener but it didnít put me off or anything I suppose.

Gran Akuma vs. Brodie Lee:**1/4
With how Lee would eventually be pushed in DGUSA I expected this to get him over as a monster. It actually happened to get Akuma over more as this monster killer.

Aeroform vs. Up in Smoke:**1/2
Short, and full of action.

Kenn Doane vs. Caleb Konley:*1/2
I donít know if I have ever seen a good Doane match. I donít know if Iíve seen an average Doane match. Maybe one day I will find one but I doubt it.

Kyle OíReilly vs. Hallowicked:**1/2
Pretty decent.

Ricochet vs. Chuck Taylor:***1/4
Skinny Ricochet, you look so funny. These guys worked so well together which should come as no surprise. Interesting to see two guys who would become a large part of DGUSA/EVOLVE in the future in this environment.

Claudio Castagnoli vs. Bobby Fish:***3/4
I enjoyed the shit out of this. Claudio is too damn good. WWE clearly has a valuable asset in him. Fish is no slouch and has some legitimate strikes which isnít surprising given his MMA background.
-Chuck Taylor comes out and says ďI just beat 150lb black kid. Iíll admit not very impressive.Ē I donít usually include stuff like that in a review butÖthat was awesome.

WSU WORLD TITLE MATCH
Mercedes Martinez vs. Sumie Sakai:**

Iíve been told this match is absolutely TERRIBLE. I didnít see that. Not good or anything but not bad.

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Johnny Gargano::***
Gargano showing flashes of why he would become the face of DGUSA.

Mike Quackenbush/Jigsaw vs. The Colony vs. The Osirian Portal vs. Hallowicked/Frightmare(Four Way Elimination Match):***1/2
This is pure craziness to start. Guys are flying all over the place and its joy for all. Once the first team was eliminated would inevitably slow down but never quite get to the craziness of the start.

Chris Hero vs. Ikuto Hidaka:****1/4
Wasnít sure how much I would enjoy this after hearing that it was 30 minutes with mostly mat based wrestling. The fact Hero was in it set me at ease though. Damn Hero is good. Yesterday I watched him in a strike heavy match against KENTA which I thought was great and now Iíve watched a mat based clinic that was even a little bit better. Supreme mat based wrestling on display with Hero working the arm for a large part of the match and Hidaka working the leg. There would be strikes coming in at the end but since I love Heroís deathly elbows it felt right.

OVERALL: This show was basically how I like my shows to be structured. The main event feeling important with solid matches filling the rest of the card. Some of the undercard may have been skippable but a lot of it consisted of short matches that were to the point and didnít really kill anyoneís enjoyment of things (besides Doane). The two best matches on this show come from the Kings of Wrestling and it will be amazing to see where they are three years from now. Itís also interesting to watch these DVDs that are only about two or three years old yet a lot has changed. One wrestler from the bottom of the card, middlecard, and the uppercard are in the WWE, three of them are in ROH, and another three are a major part of DGUSA/EVOLVE now with one being the main champion. Right now Highspots and DGUSA are running sales so now would be a perfect time to pick this one up.
