Defy or Deny II

1. Silas Young vs Adam Cole: ***1/2
Great match to start the show, crowd was hot here and both wrestlers looked good, Cole superkick before the finish was sick!

2. Bobby Fish vs TD Thomas: ***
Fun match, Fish is a very good heel, he works the crowd well and their styles clicked.

3. Charlie Haas vs Rhett Titus: **3/4
Match was good until the end wich was anticlimatic, Haas heat is awesome.

4. SCUM vs Briscoes: ***1/4-***1/2
Good brawl all over the place with good spots, Rhino was the most over wrestler in the match by far.

5. BJ Withmer vs Matt Hardy: ***1/4
Good match here, Withmer looked good even in defeat because of the finish, postmatch was well done, really liked Cole intensity there.

6. Davey Richards vs Kyle O´Reilly: ****
Great hard hitting match as you can except from this two, O´Reilly proved that he is World Champion material here.

7. DEFY or DENY: Kevin Steen vs Michael Elgin vs Roderick Strong vs Eddie Edwards: ****1/4-****1/2
Loved the booking in this match, all 4 looked like stars in the match, it follow Strong-Elgin feud and give Edwards freedom to have a run in the tag division.

ROH Defy Or Deny 2013 Review:

Silas Young vs Adam Cole - ***1/4
Sweet opener. The crowd was really hot for this one especilly because Young is from MW both Cole was very over too which made it even better. What you'd exepct from these two. Young has to be signed after this double-shot, he did an awesome job, hopefully he will be with Truth because they can be great toghter.

Bobby Fish vs TD Thomas - **1/2
This was pretty good, not quiet as good as O'Reilly/Thomas but still enjoyable MMA-style match. It looks like Thomas is getting more comfortable in the ring which is great because he's very uniuqe. Fish's pre-match handshake was hilarious, heel Fish is great

Charlie Haas vs Rhett Titus - **1/4
Eh, this was okay I guess. Found Haas interaction with the crowd more interesting than the match. LOL'd at the finish, Titus is such a loser

SCUM (Rhino, Jacobs and Rhino) vs Briscoes and Lethal - ***1/2
Glad to see I wasn't the only one that liked this match a lot. SCUM matches as a group always deliver and this was no different. Corino's pre-match promo was great and Rhino in SCUM is just a better fitting than HoT. The match itself was very good and really loved the result, SCUM's booking so far is much stronger than the booking with Cornette in charge. Can't wait for the Cincinnati match.

BJ Whitmer vs Matt Hardy - **1/2
Pretty good, Hardy played his heel role greatly once again, gotta admit he's surprising me so far. The match was in a much slower pace than the other matches in the show but it's served it's purpose and Whitmer looked super-strong after this, it looks like there's big plans for him because since Delirous came in he's getting bigger matches and better booking. Post-match was good and I like the heat this feud has.

Davey Richards vs Kyle O'Reilly - ****
This match was like the old Richards' mid/upper-card matches that always stole the show. They mashed really great which is no surprise to me and personally I enjoyed the match a lot even if I can see other pals not liking this as much as I did.

DEFY or DENY: Kevin Steen vs Michael Elgin vs Roderick Strong vs Eddie Edwards - ****1/4-****1/2
This was AWESOME. Had a good story with Strong accepting to team-up with everyone (even Edwards) to eliminate Elgin and this was just a really strong performance by Elgin. What I love about Delirous booking is there's always purpose for everything and even in this match everyone looked strong. Right now my ROH MOTY obviously.

Well like I said Shamrock vs. Callihan was supposed to happen but Shamrock no-showed, I don't know what either Hollister or Sabu were supposed to do but they really shouldn't have booked Sabu in the first place. It would be depressing to see him work if it wasn't for the fact that every time I see him I get angry he's slowing down matches and adds nothing to whatever promotion he's working.
Right, I recall hearing about the Callihan vs Shamrock match being booked. No showed it. Bastard.

Sabu getting indie bookings, I know. It sucks. Can't say I understand it for the life of me either. When Gabe did it the only reason I saw it happening is b/c he's such a mark for him. Maybe it's an ECW thing. Any other promotions...ugh. b/c he's a "big" name? Does he even draw? Whatever. I'm never for it, personally.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Happy Pro Wrestling Day, what a weird day to hold a holiday couldn't it have been on a monday like most other holidays (in the US)?

PAC & Masato Yoshino vs. Ricochet & Naruki Doi (1/29/2011)- ****
-Fantastic tag team wrestling here, two high flyers the caliber of PAC/Ricochet backed by two of the GOATs in Doi/Yoshino respectively and you got a barn burner. Doi decides to start by making friends with the crowd and they trade back and forth. They tag in their partners and shit gets cray with some high flying action. They start working each over with their signature spots trading momentum until Yoshino gets worked over but makes the tag to PAC who then hits a springboard dropkick followed by a gorgeous corkscrew springboard moonsault to the outside. Doi tries to shut him down but PAC comes back with a standing 360 Shooting Star Press (never gets old). Ricochet/Yoshino comes in and the pace quickens with plenty of back and forth between the four including PAC hitting a second rope Phoenix Splash. Ricochet hits the 630 Splash, later flattened with a top rope german suplex courtesy of PAC followed by British Airways. 10,000 Chops by Doi but Yoshino catches him with the Lightning Spiral followed by PAC hitting the 630 Splash and the Fosberry flop. Finish comes courtesy of Sol Naciente on Ricochet and he gives up. You want Dragon Gate Lucha Libre? this match has it in loads. I love this promotion.


DGUSA Mercury Rising 2010 Review (3/27/2010)
-One of my favorite shows ever; still holds up very well with a damn good card from top to bottom. You got a slew of great undercard matches highlighted with Quacksaw/Bucks, great promos from Dreamer/Teddy Hart, an outstanding OTDG title match and of course the always epic Dragon Gate Six Man Tag Match. The Warriors faction had the greatest theme ever.

TJP vs. Brad Allen- ** (I miss TJP’s old look)
Mike Quackenbush & Jigsaw vs. The Young Bucks- ****
Genki Horiguchi vs. Shingo Takagi- ***
Jimmy Jacobs & Jack Evans vs. Paul London & Brian Kendrick- ***
Tommy Dreamer vs. Jon Moxley w/Christina Von Eerie- ***
YAMATO vs. Susumu Yokosuka- ****
World-1 (Hulk, Doi & Yoshino) vs. Warriors (CIMA, Gamma & Dragon Kid)- *****

DGUSA OTGG, Revolt & Heat 2013 Review (1/25-27/2013)
-Another great weekend for DGUSA. OTGG was a fun way to kick off, lots of good fun matches but making sure not to burn themselves out. Revolt was a good show as expected, not a bad match on the card with two great matches and a damn good blowoff between Gargano/Davis. Heat was equally great but for different reasons, good continued character progression heading into WrestleCon and yet again consistent with the main event matches delivering. Marked hard for Spanky and it was great to see that he is still in great shape, ditto for Morrison.

Samuray Del Sol vs. EITA- ***
Brian Cage vs. Ray Rosas- **
Chucky T vs. Jon Davis vs. AR Fox- ***
Jimmy Susumu & Ryo Saito vs. Johnny Gargano & Rich Swann- ****
Damon Devine vs. Julius Cash- N/A
The Young Bucks vs. Sami Callihan & Arik Cannon- ***
John Morrison vs. Akira Tozawa- ****
Chucky T vs. Arik Cannon- **
FRAY- ***

EITA vs. Chuck Taylor- ***
Johnny Gargano vs. Brian Kendrick- ***
Samuray Del Sol vs. Ryo Saito- ***

The Young Bucks vs. Akira Tozawa & AR Fox- ****

Got to check out Davey/O’Reilly from DOD2, have heard nothing but good things and they’re two of my favorite talents on the indies so it should be fun to watch, shame this feud ended so early when it was really starting to find its legs.

I for Matt Hardy (A Matt Hardy guy since '99):

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

This feud can't be over until we get Fish vs Edwards.

But honestly I'm not sure the feud is over yet. There will be a match in the tapings today between Wolves & Elgin vs Red Dragon and Strong. Maybe in the iPPV after 11YA (Supercard Of Honor) they'll have their last match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Yeah, give me Eddie vs Fish please. While I was their Final Battle tag was a fun match, I need this to have a pay off for me. That being having the two guys I get a kick out of getting their own singles match vs one another.

Hideously violent but has all the intagibles of a good fight, i.e paced well and the action is largely simple and they build the match around their hatred and set up to the bigger spots brilliantly whilst making the offence in between still feel violent, hateful and vicious. Thought Jacobs was immaculate as the tough SOB babyface who will have to be killed to lose this match and thought the way they built his resilience made for a great babyface comeback since you just knew Whitmer didn't want to win as badly as Jacobs. Loved all the torture spots and extended beating Jacobs took, each cane shot was spaced out perfectly to feel significant and terrifying and Whitmer's eventual flurry of shots felt like the perfect answer to Jacobs not going down: like he gave up slowly torturing the man and just resorted to taking out his frustration with rapid shots instead.

Absolutely loved the over the top rope bump both men took when Whitmer countered the guillotine, felt eerily similar to Estrada/La Fiera in terms of how Whitmer looking groggy and almost staggering inadvertantly into the ropes with no real thought process added to the authenticity of the bump and made it look less staged. Jacobs's bumps into the ring post were hideous and the extended figure four sequence with Whitmer further brutalising Jacobs with cane shots until his entire face was bloody was a tremendous nearfall that made you believe the match could be stopped. Echo Seabs' statement that Jacobs sells the figure four tremendously, in fact he sold the early torture sequence brilliantly when he finally got free from the duck tape, staggering about whilst coming across like a maniac scrambling to keep Whitmer at bay. Rail road spike was timed perfectly as the great equaliser to Whitmer's onslaught and I dug the western esque standoff before both men hit dueling spike shots, felt like a believeable way for both men to signal their intention and commitment to winning the match. Finish as both seabs and sterling said is about as convincing and violent as you could ever hope a finish to be.

Whitmer's limp and lifeless body immediately afterwards sold the war. Paced immaculately, no reliance on elaborate spots and a great build to the bigger moments whilst keeping enough detail and structure in between to keep the match ticking effortlessly and ensuring there was no dull spots where the heat dropped.
Great review of an enthralling war of attrition. It's rare to see a US Indie grudge match unfold in such a believable fashion - the majority fall foul of obvious collaboration & lulls between the 'holy shit' moments. This is up there with Necro vs. Joe and the Briscoes vs. Steenerico streetfight. All I'd add to WOOLCOCK's write-up is that Eddie Kingston's no-nonsense commentary bolsters the feel of legit hatred that Whitmer & Jacobs conjure up.

Also watched their no-rope barbed wire blow off & it's another epic, deliberate, supremely structured bloodbath, reminiscent of Triple-H & Foley's best moments. They go 30+ mins (at one in the morning) & manage to build steadily to a big finish, never once overdoing it or losing their way. Every spot and segment is loaded with purposeful hatred.
