Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG is my favorite company and I heard this is THE PWG show so I had high expectations

PWG Guerre Sans Frontieres

9-Man 3-Way Tag Team Match
1. The Cutler Brothers (Brandon & Dustin Cutler) & Charles Mercury vs. Los Luchas (Phoenix Star & Zokre) & Malachi Jackson vs. Johnny Goodtime, Shane Haste, & Jerome " LTP" Robinson - *** 1/2

Singles
2. Candice LeRae vs. Christina Von Eerie - ** 1/2

Singles Match
3. Human Tornado vs. Scott Lost - ***

Singles Match
4. Karl "Machine Gun" Anderson vs. Roderick Strong - ***

Singles Match
5. Naruki Doi vs. Joey Ryan - ** 1/2

Singles Match
6. El Generico vs. Shingo Takagi - ****

6-Man Tag Team Match
7. Brian Kendrick & The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) vs. CIMA & Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) - ****

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla World Championship Title Match
8. Chris Hero (Champion) vs. "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson (Challenger) - **** 1/2


Half the show was average but the opener was great with some moves I've never even seen and the last 3 matches were all great. The main event is probably the best really long match I've ever seen. It never felt like it slowed down.

With the hype, I expected every match to rule and they didn't, but it's still an awesome show.

9/10

The matches are good and the production is fine for the most part. IVP videos is still the better option if you're looking to buy some puro though.

Great collections but you'll save money if you go through IVP. It took me a little digging but I realized all the Classic Japanese Wrestling DVDs are just a giant collection of all the All Japan Classics discs that both IVP and Highspots sell. I own Volume 5 personally and there's definitely some stinkers on there but also a fantastic Flair/Tsuruta match. Haven't gotten through all of it.

Glad to hear they're no total rip offs. I figured I could find the stuff on IVP but I wasn't quite sure how much digging I wanted to do. I'm still not sure to be honest but I think I'll just go through IVP and see what I can grab.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG Are You Adequately Prepared To Rock?!

6 Man Tag Team Match
:
Mr. Excitement., Phoenix Star & TARO vs. Top Gun Talwar, Lil' Cholo & Zokre: **1/2

Tag Team Match:
Team Chismo (Disco Machine & Excalibur) vs. Chris Bosh & Quicksilver: ***

Singles Match
:
Scorpio Sky vs. Hook Bombery: ***

Tag Team Match:
Super Dragon & B-Boy vs. The Briscoes: ***1/2

Singles Match:
Pinoy Boy (aka TJ Perkins) vs. Vito Thomaselli: **1/2

Tag Team Match:
The X Foundation (Scott Lost & Billy Kim) vs. The Ballard Brothers: ***

Singles Match
:
Joey Ryan vs. Adam Pearce: ***

PWG World Title 3 Way Main Event
:
Frankie Kazarian© vs. Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles: ****


Very good show, the main event was excellent and well wrestled, as you'd expect. The rest was good too, and Adam Pearce is some SWAG, man. Thumbs up show, just like the first 3 shows before this one. PWG thus far rocks, especially the golden, lolwut commentary provided by Team Chismo.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Hard to believe PWG got even stronger as the years went by. It's always been an stellar promotion, imo, for what it's worth. Miss a lot of those workers from the day. Scott Lost, Excalibur actually in the ring, Quicksilver, & my man, Chris Bosh. The STAPLES of the company back in the day. Hard to believe none work the shows anymore. Not even Joey now. It's always funny how things change and you tend to not notice it until you look back. I still don't know what happened to Human Tornado.

Best show with the original goofy commentary is Free Admission (Just Kidding). At least for one match. I laugh every single time. Nothing funnier than Excalibur & Disco crapping all over their matches.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Best early PWG moment is when the camera man cuts away from the ring in the middle of the match and shows a guy that fell through his chair. The reaction from Excalibur and Disco Machine was hilarious. I'm also a fan of the Mexican Lucha Drinking game. Some day I hope to actually have a chance to play it. Another early PWG thing that brings me great joy is when Excalibur and Disco Machine act like they're doing live commentary during they're match.

While the commentary is funny it usually has nothing to do with the match and I don't really enjoy a lot of the early shows from PWG though.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Wasn't that Uncanny X-Mas during Super Dragon vs Jonny Storm? Think it was.

The LIVE commentary

They are doing it live as they wrestle. Also LIVE. Or they spout off about having clones in addition to great wrestling. It's so goofy. I do enjoy the current, more legit commentary they have. Excalibur is still hilarious and the discussion is often focused on the match. Best of both worlds.
