Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Can't remember if I had posted thoughts on all of these shoots but nonetheless here goes

Breaking Kayfabe w/ Lanny Poffo
- Pretty average.. Theres something really unlikeable about Lanny

Timeline History of the WCW 1991 w/Barry Windham
- Fine, Barrys entertaining enough.

When Paul London met Raven
- Disappointing and lacking in direction. Paul shouldn't host anything...

RF Video Shoot with Debra McMichael
- Awful. Debra is very Lanny Poffo like...

Highspots with Bobby Lashley
- Could've been worse. He really doesn't open up enough and is tooo nice about everything.

Full Case of Tales with SCUM
- Best of the lot. Steve is great and Jimmy and him interact well together. The Missy story is pretty great as are a few other stories.

SMV Shoot with BJ Whitmer
- Pretty good... Really cool to hear about the spot at SCOH where he and Jimmy botched the Kid Kash spot as he calls it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Any of you here PWO/PRIME Wrestling fans? I'm contemplating buying Wrestlelution 1-5 and I'm wondering that they're like. They seem like a good promotion from what I've seen, with a lot of good talents, but I'm curious as to if these shows are as good as they look in preview videos.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread I the only guy here who's not particularly sweet on Willie Mack?

Good match vs Hero at BOLA. That's about it.

I was ready to fall asleep before the show even started. Some people impressed me and others didn't. I don't really remember any new names so that makes it tough to really talk about the show. I wasn't blown away by anything though.

And as soon as the main event ended I left so I missed the announcement about the arena. Can't say I'm shocked that nothing is going to get done there. I don't know why someone would try to do anything non wrestling related with that building and expect it to work out. It's just in a really weird part of the city.

However the end of the year as the opening date does nothing for me since I won't be in Philly once I'm done with school in May.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Young Bucks vs The Spectral Envoy - CHIKARA Zelda The Great
This is a pretty great example of why I hate CHIKARA and why it's only worthwhile me watching it for non CHIKARA produced talent like Kingston and Young Bucks. Bucks are great in this as they always are. Their promo ROCKS. "I pay the mortgage with superkicks and 450 splashes" = best line all year. Everything on CHIKARA's end of this though sucks and annoyed me to no end. Is there a reason why Quack talks like a "special person" on commentary. Surely he doesn't speak like that when you have a conversation with him? Makes it impossible to get invested in something when you have him talking all over it in THAT voice. Is any CHIKARA wrestler any good? As in the ones with the CHIKARA gimmicks? UM and Hallowicked suck. Is Hallowicked's finisher supposed to be a parody? Everytime I've seen it my brain automatically assumes the move got reversed or didn't connect. It's wrestling so you can get anything over if you win enough matches with it but this is taking the cake. Barely seen him connect with the kick at all when he's done it. Is Go To Sleepy Hollow supposed to make people laugh when he does it or when people say the name? UM sucks too. They do the tombstone spot on him again like they did at KOT and the commentators try to build it up as something huge that takes UM out of the match and then mention how horrific it was when they did it at KOT. The same spot that he kicked out of a KOT straight after two more moves? Hmmmm. Shockingly there's no selling of it here either. Lying on the floor because the Bucks are working a control segment isn't selling fyi. First move after the "deadly" tombstone spot? He does a running senton off the apron to the floor. Couldn't make it up. Side note to parents who take their new born babies to Indy shows. First off don't. Get a babysitter. Second of all if you ignore point 1, DON'T FUCKING SIT IN THE FRONT ROW AND THEN LOOK ALL ANGRY AND NERVOUS WHEN THE WRESTLERS START BRAWLING AND DIVING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. IT'S A FUCKING INDY SHOW. Bryce Remsburg is the worst wrestling character ever. I say character because there's no way someone can act like that on their own accord without breaking the world record for level of bellendidness. Does someone say to Bryce before each show, "Remember Bryce, make sure you get over more than anything else on the show". Such an unprofessional referee too. Bucks win and he does the pissed off reaction like HE lost and then rather than giving the winners their belts back he just throws/drops them at them. Surely there must be a storyline where Bryce is a dick and he's gonna get his dues one day. I've give them ample chance this year to change my view on their product. Fuck a dumb CHIKARA.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Didn't Chikara place the couple in the front row purely to allow the baby to be seen on the DVD and thus give the allure that they really are a family product? That'd be my guess, anyway.

Plus sides to Chikara? It funds Botchamania. Yeah, that's about it.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Hallowicked sucks? Ok, now you've officially crossed the line.

What's next - Frightmare, Ophidian, THE COLONY? WHERE WILL IT END?

I kid. It's too bad you don't get into it, but oh well. More fun Chikara for me. It'll always be #1 in my heart.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

If we are talking about Chikara - I really needs to see the Cibernetico match. It looks like the atmosphere was fantastic and plus, it's KEVIN STEEN in Chikara.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It's pretty bossy. Definitely worth a look with someone like Jimmy Jacobs returning to Chikara after all of these years.
