Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

High impact Wrestling presents Art of the Deathmatch!


1
Double Hell Barbedwire Ropes & Weed Wacker Deathmatch
Cris Anarchy Vs. Chaos Vs. Outrage Vs. VK Grimes
-**
If you ever need an explanation as to why selling is an integral part to a wrestling match, watch this. Zero selling throughout and utterly poor in execution.

2
Exploding Barbedwire Boards Deathmatch
Chaos & Mada Vs. Outrage & Zeek The Destroyer
DUD
This was only highlights of some shit match. I use the term "highlights" extremely loosely.

3
Barbedwire Bricks & Barbedwire Bat Deathmatch
Mada Vs. Chaos Vs. Entapryze
1/2*
Entapryze either has too much fat on his ass or their barbed wire isn't very effective. Great to see him over-sell it after having no reaction for a good few seconds beforehand, though. I have to give Mada and the commentator credit to act like his major botch (driving himself through a bridge of lightbulbs instead of Chaos) never happened. It takes a special kind of person to rewrite reality. Not to be outdone in his stupidity, Mada then attempts a spinning dive off the turnbuckle to the outside. What made this noteworthy, however, is that instead of hitting a forward/backward rotation he pirouetted. Yes, a pirouette. It was ridiculous. The best part of this match was Chaos "Samoa Joe" no-selling the pirouette, GTFO'ing and stealing an audience member's prosthetic leg. Shits and giggles happen before Mada suddenly wins not only the match but seemingly every title HIW own.

Btw, why do bricks need barbed wire? THEY'RE FUCKING BRICKS. Throw them at someone and they'll die.


4
Carribean Barbedwire Deathmatch
Chaos/Ricky Flash Vs. Cris Anarchy/Outrage Vs. Chuey Martinez & NECRO BUTCHER
**1/2
People lead you to think that Cena is only liked by kids. You'd also be led to think all deathmatch fans are BRUTAL, testosterone, MANLY MEN. Well, at least one of these premises are wrong if the fans here are wearing pink "Rise Above Hate" shirts proudly in front of the camera. As for the match, it was a masterpiece compared to the others before it.

5
Barbedwire Boards, Lightube Boards & Barbedwire Bats Deathmatch
Outrage/Chaos Vs. Cris Anarchy/VK Grimes
*1/4
Grimes took a beating here, not that he'd act like he had, though. The knife was a pointless prop as they made the attacks too fake and the post-attack blading too obvious. Botch-ridden spotfest where spots were so obviously called that, at times, I almost forgot who was on each team. Chaos sliced open his wrist causing a slight stoppage up until the other three just randomly walked each other out of the building and fuck some guy's car up. The win came with Grimes no-selling FIRE and AA'ing Chaos through the windshield in synchrony to Anarchy doing the same to Outrage. Interestingly, Anarchy went from hopelessly terrible to delivering the only interesting moment in this match (his dives)

6
Barbedwire Ropes, Lightubes, Syringes & Bug Zapper Deathmatch
VK Grimes Vs. Chaos
DUD
From start to finish this was probably the more grotesque of the deathmatches I've seen. Syringes being thrown into someone's face and being put under someone's toe nail? The fuck, man?! Still, a complete BS match. A glorified squash from start to finish, well almost finish. I love how Grimes gets "killed" in the final spot only for some random to make a run-in and powerbomb Chaos to create a double KO. I'm not even joking when I say both Chaos and the ref had to steady the ladder for Mr Random to climb it.

7
Eluminated Lightubes & Barbedwie Pit Deathmatch
Ricky Flash Vs. Chaos
***
The previous matches lead me to believe these were all terrible hacks but boy was I surprised in seeing actual wrestling from Chaos. Following a few minutes of somewhat good, technical wrestling these crazy fuckers are reverting to their insanity side and are giving Russian leg-sweeps with a machete to their foreheads! A very short match but, by far and away, the best thing on this DVD.

Overall Thoughts:
You know you have a problem when you pop in the DVD and the first thing you hear is Six Feet Under. Because the band seemingly embodies the wrestling promotion to a T. SFU are your typical death metal jack-offs that don't get what the genre is. As it even says in their bio, their lyrics are "BRUTAL~!" and that's what is systemically wrong with them, the genre and this fed as a whole. Of course the genre calls for violent, hate-inspired lyrics but not at the cost of musicianship and talent. There has to be an underlying reason or message for doing what you're doing, aside from creating a false image of yourself as a badass motherfucker. It's almost funny how their lead singer used to be in Cannibal Corpse because they're the defining band in the genre. It's where SFU got their inspiration. And that's the major problem within deathmatch wrestling, too. You have too many feds taking inspiration from BJW/CZW/ECW without realising the wrestling basis to the brutality. It isn't about using a weapon for the sake of it, it's about using it in the right moment.

Ultimately, as long as you have bands (feds) who only make music (matches) for the imagery, the genre (deathmatch style) will never be seen as anything more than garbage. Fuck HIW, fuck SFU and fuck Chaos' shitty DC sneakers.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Pre-ordered DDT4 from PWG last night. Can't wait until it gets here.

Also, I ordered the Dynamite Kid Documentary from Highspots. $13 to ship 1 DVD

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Pre-order? Must mean DVD release is around the corner. Which means someone will up it to XWT. Which then means I'll be able to view it soon b/c I'm a pirating bastard.

Same product, different names. Very silly.
Gabe doesn't have a say in that matter. It would be a Japan call.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Yeah they only send them over for double/triple shots over 3-4 weekends a year. That doesn't mean he can only run shows under the DGUSA banner for them dates when they come over. He may as well promote all his cards under that banner and just use the Japan guys when they're over. It's basically a US Feeder system so they can easily do smaller shows without the Dragon Gate guys. Obviously they wont draw as well but it cuts out the silly back and forth between EVOLVE and DGUSA.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Can't say I'm all that familiar with him but Paul Tokunaga (Paul T.) who was the first commissioner of PWG past away lastnight. Always said to see another young death in wrestling, I'm sure some are more familiar with him then I am.

Highspots has the release date as 2 days. So probably around a week until it's on there.

Not how it works, unfortunately. I agree that's how it should be, but with the deal in place Gabe/Sal don't have that option. It's been explored. It's on the Japan office.

The EVOLVE title in general is quite humorous and weird. Nevermind that Ki and Fish, the first two guys to demand a title, aren't even in the promotion anymore. Part of me feels like it means a Japan guy is winning the DGUSA title soon, another part of me feels like it's just a safety net because they sense the DGUSA brand may close soon, or the most realistic option, they're just doing it to do it.

Ahhh, very sad to hear that. He entertained me from what I've seen of the early PWG. RIP Paulie T.
