Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I love how I pre-ordered Mystery Vortex along with 4 other shows in PWG's holiday sale last month and I still haven't gotten it yet while everyone else is already watching...

Anyways, went over to a local used video games store today (Press Start for anyone on the east coast) and I was SHOCKED at what I found. I was looking for specifically wrestling obviously and I stumbled upon a shit ton of shoot interviews of all things. I didn't buy any, not my cup of tea, but seriously it was crazy. Highspots shoots with Ric & Roddy, Petey Williams, Behind the Scenes at The Bash etc. ROH Straigh Shootins with Christopher Daniels & Ron Killings. I was hoping after seeing ROH titles I'd stumble across an actual show, but unfortunately didn't. Did see ECW Guilty as Charged 2001 though, there's a rare one. My point being, go out and check your local pawn shops and shit people! You NEVER know what you'll find there. :doug

I always check the DVD racks of thrift stores, but I rarely find anything. I found some random indy show that had a bunch of ex-WWE guys on it for $2.99 but didn't buy it because nothing really interested me. Mostly though it's only WWE/TNA stuff. Kind of odd how that store has so many things. Maybe there's a connection between the owner of the store and someone at Highspots. Either that or a massive indy mark kicked the bucket or something. Personally I probably would have grabbed them all because they were most likely dirt cheap, and worst come to worst you could sell them on ebay for $10-$20 each and make some money.


I'm considering pre-ordering DDT4, or I may wait till the February show is released and buying both (assuming it's good). I do know one thing for sure: I'm going to cry like a little bitch at the end of DDT4.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG Mystery Vortex 2012

Spoiler for :

I'll just do a quick review,might do a detailed one tomorrow. Maybe write up the MOTYC.

Dojo Bros vs The Young Bucks

Really fun and great opener,one of the best openers in recent memory. Young Bucks are Immense. Both Strong and Edwards show why they excel as tag wrestlers. Sick finish.

****

Sami Callihan vs Drake Younger.

I don't care what anyone says Younger is plain horrible. Easily the worst on the PWG roster. I'm not Sami's biggest fan but I can tolerate him given the right opponent but Drake brought out the worst in him. Edwards/Richards from BITW is a masterpiece compared to this. Hated it. Maybe * star for the apron spot. I'm not watching another Drake match ever again. Actually it doesn't even deserve a star.

RockNes Monsters vs Super Smash Brothers (C)

"The PWG titles being the ugliest in professional wrestling" Everyone loves SSB and I'm a fan of RockNes, more so Goodtime. Still find it hard to buy into them as heels,even though Goodtime has a great heel beard. No matter how much I see the "Get Over Here" belly to belly into the corner I still mark. Love it. Nice little match.

***1/2

Joey Ryan vs Scorpio Sky

A nice send off to one of the best heels to ever graze an Indy ring.I think I'm in the minority that will be sad to see Joey leave. The match its self was enjoyable. Some nice nostalgic touches in the match like the lioncock and stuff. I've read that some skipped the match. If you skip any match it should be the Younger one.

***

I'll watch the rest tomorrow. Very fun show so far. Only gonna get better too.




Also, didn't see this posted.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

PWG Failure To Communicate

- Joey Ryan vs Ryan Taylor
- ***
- Decent opener. A lot of people shit on Taylor, but I don't mind him.

- Eddie Edwards vs Michael Elgin
- ****
- This was a really good match. Way better then I expected

- Famous B & B-Boy vs RockNES Monsters
- ***
- This was all around a fun match. Commentary added to it. No complaints.

- Sami Callihan vs Davey Richards
- ****.5
- This match was awesome. I don't really have any comments for it, but it was great.

- Rich Swann vs Roderick Strong
- ****
- Really liked this. Started slow, but got better as it went on. Very good debut for Swann. Finish was brutal.

- Brian Cage vs Willie Mack
- ****
- Sami Callihan was on commentary. At one point he said he broke some chairs, and said it was coming out of his paycheck, and that he's now getting paid 11 dollars and a hot dog, Ian Rotten style. This made me laugh hysterically. Also, Curt Hawkins apparently buys every PWG DVD, which is neat. I really liked this match. I've seen people they didn't like it, but personally I didn't see anything wrong with it.

- Kenny Omega & El Generico vs Young Bucks
- ****
- Very good match. Bucks are a great tag team, and Omega and Generico are both outstanding athletes. Matches like this show that tag team wrestling isn't a lost art.

- Kevin Steen vs Ricochet vs Michael Elgin
- ****.5
- For a seemingly filler match, this was great. They did some comedy spots, mostly revolving around Ricochet being 1/4 the size of Elgin and Steen. Ricochet was definitely the star of this match. I've said it before, but Dragon Gate has done wonders for him. Everyone got their shit in, and it was really good IMO. I feel like it could have gone longer though.



XPW Baptized In Blood I

- Supreme vs Kid Kaos
- *
- This was horrible. I like Kaos, he's one of the maybe 5 or 6 guys from XPW who I liked. Supreme, on the other hand. I mean, does he even have any training?

- Johnny Webb vs Messiah
- ***
- Honestly this is probably the best match on the show, and even then it's passable.

- Kronus vs Carlito Montana
- *.5
- Kronus was okay in his prime. He's past his prime here. Another generic, totally forgettable match.

- Axl Rotten vs Homeless Jimmy
- *
- I'm not sure, but during Axl Rotten's entrance, he was letting fans touch the barbed wire axe handles, and I think one of them was Youth Suicide. That's probably the most interesting thing about this match.

- Cronic vs JN (or JM? couldn't hear it well)
- N/A
- Non tournament match. Skipped it.

- Supreme vs Messiah
- *
- Again, Supreme has no business being anywhere near a wrestling ring, never mind being in it.

----I stopped watching at this point.

- Why did I buy this? Watching this made me realize that I really need to re-evaluate my life. Everything I saw sucked, and the commentary was a whole new level of horrible. I could have downloaded this for free, and still feel like I was ripped off. The second tournament came with this, but honestly this show has turned me off from even attempting it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Watching Mystery Vortex, I'll post a full review in a day or two once I get through it all, but just had to post about the Sami Callihan/Drake Younger match...

Sami Callihan vs Drake Younger - PWG Mystery Vortex- *1/2
~ Seriously...fuck this shit. I don't even know where to start. I worked out exactly why I hate Sami; he uses the same mannerisms as EUGENE, which would be fine if he was supposed to look like a retard but we're supposed to take him seriously. Eugh. Selling was non-existant, they went to ridiculous levels (trading Vertebreakers and both kicking out of them?), not to mention Drake having a superman kick out at 1 for no real reason after enduring a TON of offense. Not a fan of unprotected headbutts either which they relied upon too heavily. The only reason this doesn't get a DUD rating is because they clearly went all out and didn't hold back, so I have to appreciate their efforts. But no, this was certainly not my cup of tea, the epitome of garbage wrestling IMO. Oh joy, I'll have to sit through the rematches as well.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

2 free matches from Chikara. The shows? King of Trios 2012 Night 3 and The Thirteenth Hat.

Spoiler for Trios action:



Very fun trios match along with a good hold for hold singles match.


You know you remember this.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH - Anarchy in the U.K.

BJ Whitmer vs. Go Shiozaki - *** 3/4

Spud vs. Jody Fleisch vs. Jonny Storm - ** 3/4

Nigel McGuinness, Colt Cabana, & Robbie Brookside vs. The Kings of Wrestling & Chad Collyer - *** 1/2

ROH World Title
Bryan Danielson (c) vs. SUWA - *** 1/2

Doug Williams vs. Jimmy Rave - *** 1/2

The Briscoes vs. Matt Sydal & Davey Richards - **** 1/4

ROH World Title
Bryan Danielson (c) vs. Roderick Strong - **** 1/4


Overall: 9.25/10

- Really awesome opener. Nothin but two brutes hittin each other with big bombs for 15 minutes. Chops, clotheslines, & suplexes galore. One of the best openers in company history tbh. This crowd fucking ROCKS.

- The 3 way is a fun spotfest, Spud gets killed. It seamlessly transitions into the next match with KOW spoiling the party and once again murdering Spud... poor guy. So the faces appear and challenge the Kings, challenge accepted. Ultra fun match with tons of creative chants from the crowd. Formula was great and the finishing stretch was awesome. Seriously, this might be the best crowd I've ever seen.

- Earlier in the night, Aries declared he couldn't wrestle tonight because of broken ribs which lead to Roddy challenging Danielson for the belt. But on Danielson's way back to the locker room, SUWA ambushed him with a kendo stick and demanded a title shot, which of course he got. Really good brawl with Danielson getting a nasty cut on top of his head from a chair shot. The finish was absolutely perfect to keep SUWA's rep in tact. Super good 10 minute match.

- Williams/Rave was probably the sleeper match of the night. Got a ton of time (20 minutes plus). There was a lot of stalling and crowd play in the first few minutes but once you get past that there's some good wrestling and Nana adds some entertainment value to it, even though he should've been thrown out several times. I absolutely love his promo before the match while you see EVERYONE in the crowd getting their toilet paper ready. Hilarious.

- The tag match is all kinds of awesome. Bit of a slow build as the first half didn't have anything too special, basically a really long feeling out process, but once Sydal made the hot tag to Davey it was pure insanity. People flying all over the arena, getting dropped on their heads. Sydal looked like a million bucks here, either wooing the crowd with his athleticism or just getting killed by a Briscoe. The nearfall off the Doomsday reversal was fucking NUTS. Great match.

- It's Danielson vs. Strong IV, I shouldn't have to tell you how it went. Stiff, intense, physical, hard-hitting, etc. All those fancy words wrapped into one match, as these guys always deliver. Fantastic finishing stretch that teased the same ending from their Vendetta match. Major props go out to Danielson. By the end of this, the gash in his head was steady flowing, his mouth was busted open, and his chest was just obliterated by the countless number of chops he's taken from both guys. Awesome main event from a SERIOUSLY underrated show loaded with great wrestling and a red hot crowd from start to finish. If I ever end up making a list, I can guarantee this will end up being one of the Top 10 shows in company history. KingKicks was in attendance I believe, ask him how it went.

Anarchy in the UK is THAT amazing? Damn, almost looks like it could rival Unified. Maybe I should make McQueen an offer and see if he'll sell it to me.

I can't wait to see this Callihan/Younger match. Only b/c the consensus on it is so back and forth. Will my love for Callihan pull through or will I find to be long and poorly worked? STAY TUNED

Bet he'd do it. If not, then grab this one real quick: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ring-of-Hono...item2c6b9df5d4

Every review I've read has been all positive but I tend to like the show more than others, especially the 6 man (so much fun) and Williams/Rave. Double main event is the tits.
