Sami/Drake was ridiculously stiff. Like, it reached the levels of Necro/Joe, only without weapons. It might be the stiffest regular match of all time. #throwingbombs
I'm not gonna lie, I enjoyed the hell out of it. Two crazy fuckers want to die? Where do I sign?! Just a lot of fun. It's one of those matches you'll either love or hate. I love it. Drake is the toughest son of a bitch on the planet. ***1/2
Knowing me, I'll probably be on the favorable side of it. Only have a pet peeve for matching going long when they have no business doing so. If you can accomplish what you need to do in half the time, well then do so. I think it's why I loved Makabe/Shibata from Wrestle Kingdom so much.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
I loved the headbutts. From the time I saw Sami I didn't really like him though. He looks like a ripoff of Taz from the hair to the one piece to the facial expressions. Him doing his taunt (i guess that's what it is) was annoying but luckily that stopped after 5 or so minutes and it was better but I liked Drake a bit more. I would also throw it around ***1/2 but i found myself just wanting it to end at points which is the only reason I noticed it was such a long match.
Ditto to the Steen part. That and all the fun he says he has in PWG on his shoots makes it impossible for me to not love the guy.
