Oh yeah, I remember the 6 man getting crapped on by the majority. Don't know what to expect, but I wouldn't think the blandness of Brookside & Collyer would bring the quality down so much. Considering who their partners are.

Doug Williams vs Jimmy Rave sounds

damn, the auction is only 10 bucks + 3 for shipping. #takemymoneynow

Buy that shit! I'm in full ROH mode right now and I'm not really sure why. So many shows to watch/rewatch I don't even know which one to pick.

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.
The Tag Match is still one of my favourite matches ever... Not the best but one of the most enjoyable matches for sure. Love that show.

I literally felt the exact same way. It wasn't quite AS good the 2nd time around since I noticed the first half wasn't too special but yeah, back half fucking rules. One of the most slept on shows & matches in ROH history.

- 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.


I feel your pain. I have no idea why you bought it either. When I was first branching out and buying non-WWE stuff I bought shit like this. I have a couple of XPW DVDs and all sorts of other crap that I wish I never bought. However it was just buying random DVDs that I ended up discovering PWG so I guess it all wasn't a total waste of time.

I know I can get a quick 13 bucks to spend atm too.

Same here. Although I'm half way into Age of Insanity. Need to finish it but got sidetracked with 2013 stuff. Currently all caught up so perhaps tonight I'll pop it in. Up next - Black vs Aries. Don't know if it will reach the level of their Final Battle '08 match. Fingers crossed.

Default Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

I was going to put spoiler tags but it seems people have already posted their ratings so, sorry if I spoil anything:

PWG Mystery Vortex 2012

1. Young Bucks vs. Roderick Strong and Eddie Edwards - ****
2. Sami Callihan vs. Drake Younger - *** 1/2 (the ridiculous front flip onto to the chairs was terrible though)
3. Super Smash Brothers vs. RockNES Monsters - *** 1/2
4. Joey Ryan vs. Scorpio Sky - **
5. B-Boy vs. Brian Cage vs. Willie Mack vs. TJ Perkins - *** 3/4 (marked out like a school girl when Cage caught Perkins in the suplex)
6. El Generico vs. Rich Swann - *** 3/4
7. Super Smash Brothers vs. Eddie Edwards and Roderick Strong - *** 3/4
8. Kevin Steen vs. Adam Cole - **** 1/4 (that chair spot was fucking insane)

Overall: 9.5/10

Spoiler for Results:


Show of the year. Better than DDT 4 and better than Wrestlemania. One of the best, if not the best PWG shows I've ever seen and one of the best wrestling shows I've ever seen, period. Only one bad match and it wasn't even that bad with the atmosphere of Joey Ryan leaving so it was a feel good moment. Awesome opener, 2 great matches following up, 3 matches that could have been main events, and an amazing brutal main event with a new champion crowned. I've always liked Adam Cole but this is by far his best match and he is now a star.

PWG Mystery Vortex

1.) Young Bucks vs. Strong & Edwards - ****
Fantastic way to open the show

2.) Drake Younger vs. Sami Callihan - ***3/4
Don't care if people think I'm overrating it, I enjoyed the hell out of this match.

3.) Super Smash Brothers vs. RockNES Monsters - ***1/4
One of the worst matches they've had in PWG and it's still above 3 stars, tells you a lot about their run so far.

4.) Joey Ryan vs. Scorpio Sky - ***
Good sendoff for Ryan but the match itself was passable

5.) Mack vs. Cage vs. B-Boy vs. Perkins - ***1/2
Really fun match, great for what it was on the card

6.) El Generico vs. Rich Swann - ***3/4
So much fun, so so much fun.

7.) Super Smash Brothers vs. Edwards & Strong - ****1/2
Match of the night, and one of the best tag team matches I've seen all year, right up there for me with SSB/Bucks and SSB/Generico & Del Sol

8.) Kevin Steen vs. Adam Cole - ****
Pretty much exactly what I expected. Very entertaining.

I think everyone can agree this is the Best PWG show of the year. Great from top to bottom and nothing below 3 Stars for me.


Also, just pre-ordered DDT4. According to Highspots the expected shipping date is February 7th.

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.
This saves me ranting about it myself. Horrendous match. Add to that Drake's horrible bumping. The delayed senton bump off the apron was the worst I've seen for a long time and I really hate it when people do "turned inside out" bump off lariats. Kills the move when you just do a flip off it. If I hit you with a lariat that you don't see coming then nobody naturally takes a bump like that. Headbutts weren't good either. I'm guessing Drake does that A LOT. Oh well. He's the one who'll be crippled and braindead in ten years time and not me (hopefully).

Talked about the top 3 matches in the MOTYC Thread. SSB/RockNES I wasn't a fan of. Heel RockNES just isn't working for me and I've really turned off them. Their matches going long doesn't help. Their goofy shtick kinda worked in small doses as a babyface team during their comebacks but it's just go away heat when they do it now as heels. Joey/Harold was nothing much. Nice send off for Joey after though. 4 way was fun. Cage is like the best wrestler ever in this envrionment. The blockbuster counter into a hanging suplex. Jesus wept. Wasn't a fan of DojoBros/SSB. Workrate match but here it didn't work like it did with the Young Bucks. No character to it when you take away the heel heat and the finishing run was no where near as good as the opener. Eddie completely no selling SSB's finisher really wound me up too.

SSB vs RockNES was at best only a solid/pretty good affair. certainly was SSB's weakest match in PWG yet. Didn't need to go 14 fucking minutes either. 10 would have suited it just fine. If not a bit shorter. Why did Goodtime trim his beard to shove in Stupe's face? Puzzling. FATALITY is still un-freakin-believable to witness. So, that's always fun to see.

Callihan vs Younger is one I'm torn on. I marked for Callihan during it. Drake honestly was quite bad. He did a lot that made me realize it was a staged affair. Not good when that happens. Seabs pointed out the ghastly tumble off the apron. My brother and I were left perplexed and wondered how fans even popped at it. PWG fans should have shit on it, tbhayley. Grr they're too awesome nowadays. The match was better version of Callihan vs Mack from BOLA. What do I mean by that? Enjoyable enough match for me thanks to the actions of Callihan alone and nothing by the opponent. Only dare I say I liked this MORE than I did the Mack match. Which should tell you how I feel personally about Willie Mack.

Opener was fucking insanity on the all the right levels. If you like Young Bucks, chops, & super kicks, you'll get a hard-on for it.

I'll finish the rest tomorrow. Can't wait for Steen vs COLE.
