Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Rah your probably thinking of the Threemendous III match.
PWG Mystery Vortex
Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs The Young Bucks
This is how to open a show, and it's also how to do a non-stop action match without it being bad. This was great fun. Bucks are awesome heels as usual, and it makes it all the better when Strong and Eddie are just out there to hit people hard and hurt them. Great sequences, hot crowd, great commentary. Yeah, this was great.
Drake Younger vs Sami Callihan
Can't be bothered to moan about this match, because what would be the point? But yeah, I hated it. It was terrible. Almost made me turn the show off because it made me hate wrestling momentarily.
The Super Smash Brothers vs The RockNES Monsters
Good tag match. The Monsters are a decent team, but not great as heels. SSB are just great though and so much fun to watch so they made up for it. I really like Goodtime too, but Yuma is just there. I wanted to skip this after Sami/Younger but glad I didn't because I enjoyed it.
Joey Ryan vs Scorpio Sky
Meh match, but worth it for the ridiculous Mustache Ride off the apron. Always thought Joey was nuts for doing that move.
B-Boy vs Brian Cage vs TJ Perkins vs Willie Mack
Like Knox said on commentary, I probably enjoyed this way too much. Heaps of fun. This is where Cage shines, he was so beastly in this. B-Boy served his purpose as did TJP, Mack was a bit sloppy here and there but made for some swell sequences. Crowd going nuts for the double suplex was awesome.
El Generico vs Rich Swann
This was great. Generico playing the veteran was really good, and Swann makes for a great underdog and gets his spots in when it's necessary to make really good fiery comebacks. What you'd expect really which is obviously a good thing when it comes to these two. Loved Generico busting out that finish he hasn't used for ages. He's the man.
Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs The Super Smash Brothers
Another really fun tag match, despite not being as well worked as the opener. Stupified's dive sequence was awesome. Nice workover on Uno and the finish was sick. Digging Strong and Edwards as a team so much more than Edwards and Davey. They just go out there to beat people up and it works. Neither of their matches went into overkill either which was nice.
Kevin Steen vs Adam Cole
Great, brutal match. Steen went out there to kill Cole and they really did a good job of getting that across with the way he toyed with him. Cole was great at being beaten up and he sold everything really well. I loved when Cole eventually got some offense in and Steen was super quick to go for the cover once he had him down again instead of messing around like he was before. Thought it got a bit slow in places like Cole looking for the ladder and the set up for the chair stack spot. Some nice spots but only two big ones which was really nice to see. Chair stack was ridiculous as fuck, and the thumbtack stuff was great too. Didn't think it was a proper MOTYC contender like the ladder match, but I liked this a hell of a lot.
Great show overall.
