Awesome news, yes. But center stage only has around 800 permanent seats. So it won't be a huge crowd, but I'm sure the atmosphere will be great

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Champions vs. All Stars
Notable Matches:

-Kenny King vs. Kyle O'Reilly (***3/4)
While not the star making performance I hoped for, this is still a great athletic exhibition. Both men impressed me. Go out of your way to see this.

-Roderick Strong, Daniels + KoW vs. El Generico, Briscoes + Davey Richards (***3/4)
Another very good match. Although not epic, it was still a fun way to spend a half hour. The Davey/Roddy exchanges were awesome as was Daniel's role on the heel team. A good main-event.

Rating: 67/100

There was a bit of filler on this show (which is expected with 8 main-eventers in one match). I would get this as a freebie after buying two dvds. Although 67 doesn't seem like an amazing score, it might as well be a 95 with RoH's track record for their first shows of the year. A good start for Ring of Honor.

ROH Only the Strong Survive

Notable Matches:

-TV Title: Christopher Daniels (c) vs. Claudio Castagnoli ****
Awesome match. These two have amazing chemistry and the result is a good, crisp wrestling match similar to Daniels/Omega at DBDVIII. Exceeded my expectations.

-Davey Richards vs. Chris Hero ***3/4
A bit of a let down. Davey's selling was pretty inconsistent and the crowd wasn't with them enough for the near falls to not look like overkill. It's hard to build to an epic crescendo when they don't pop for a kickout. With that said, you can't go wrong with Davey and Hero and there are still some great moments in the match.

-World Title: Roderick Strong (c) vs. Jay Briscoe ****
Against all odds, Jay Briscoe made me believe he had a chance of taking the belt. An aggressive, bloody match that concludes the weekend in grand fashion.

Rating: 80/100

This was a weird show. Some stuff overachieved (Daniels/Castagnoli, Briscoe/Strong) while others underachieved (Hero/Richards, Four Corner Survival). The good definitely outweighs the bad. Make this your first RoH purchase of 2011.

2011 Match of the Year Standings:
1. Ring of Honor Championship: Eddie Edwards (c) vs. Davey Richards (Best in the World iPPV, June 26th, *****)
2. Non-Title: Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin (c) vs. Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards (Honor Takes Center Stage Part 2 iPPV, April 2nd, ****1/2)
3. All Asia Tag Team Championships: Seiya Sanada & Manabu Soya (c) vs. Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi (AJPW, March 21st, ****1/2)
4. Pure Rules: Davey Richards vs. Christopher Daniels (Manhattan Mayhem IV, March 19th, ****1/2)
5. GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Kotaro Suzuki (c) vs. Eddie Edwards (NOAH "The First Navigation", January 29th, ****2/5)

I've seen concerts there and the atmosphere is pretty cool. I'm excited to see how a wrestling show will be there.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

So I guess I'm the only person here who loved Cole vs. Bennett from Champions vs. All Stars? I thought it was simple and refreshing. Cole's pinball bumping made Bennett look like a million bucks.

And if Bennett really is playing a WWE-type wrestler using a more basic moveset to get heat...well then I think that's kind of awesome.

Just watched Peligro Abejas vs Steen and Kendrick, don't understand why Kendrick doesn't get more love, he is fucking awesome!

I also enjoyed it quite a bit. Maybe even more than King/O'Reilly. But I still don't like Bennett at all.

I don't think it's his gimmick, and even if it is it's not getting him heat, it's just getting him apathy from the crowd and making him matches dull.


ROH - Only The Strong Survive


The Bravado Brothers vs. Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly - **1/2

Rhett Titus vs. Caprice Coleman - *1/2

Colt Cabana vs. Grizzly Redwood - *

Mike Bennett vs. Cedric Alexander - *

ROH World TV Title
Christopher Daniels vs. Claudio Castagnoli - ***1/2

Steve Corino & Andy Ridge vs. Alabama Attitude - *

Chris Hero vs. Davey Ricards - ***1/2

Four Corner Survival
Homicide vs. El Generico vs. Mark Briscoe vs. Kenny King - **1/4

ROH World Title
Roderick Strong vs. Jay Briscoe - ****


Just like the first show of 2011, too much filler here in the under card that almost no one cares about. Much like Strong and Daniels seemingly have absolutely no chemistry together, Strong and Jay prove they’re great together continuing the series of very good matches together from their series in 09. Hero/Davey & Claudio/Daniels are good, but too much filler should keep you away from a first selection purchase.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

How long was Pearce the champ, about a year? Guess with everything they did to build this up as the final encounter between the two Cabana has to win. From what I've seen from NWA from Hollywood I've enjoyed Cabana more there then in ROH.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH - Only The Strong Survive


Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly vs. The Bravado Brothers - **3/4


Rhett Titus vs. Caprice Coleman - **1/2
Strong showing from Coleman.


Colt Cabana vs. Grizzly Redwood - **1/4
About as good as it could've been between the two.


Mike Bennett vs. Cedric Alexander - *1/2
Cedric Alexander, another athletic black guy.


ROH Television Championship
Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Claudio Castagnoli - ***3/4
I've been watching Daniels wrestle for years now and I've just never been a big fan of his, always thought he was average. In the sense that he never did anything special, just kinda played it safe. But watching his matches from this year have made me become a huge fan. He's stepped his game up tremendously since his return to the company and I applaud him for that. He's got my early vote for wrestler of the year right now. Oh and this was a great match by the way. Don't think the botched BME hurt it, but I hated the Bennett interference. I'd completely forgotten he was even at ringside until he came up on the apron, then I was like fuck you. Check this match out though, real good stuff.


Steve Corino & Andy "Right Leg" Ridge vs. Alabama Attitude - **


Davey Richards vs. Chris Hero - ***3/4
Overkill, overkill, overkill. Wayyyy too many nearfalls to the point where it was just pissing me off. It was booked like they had to have a match of the year candidate by forcing the nearfalls. The first 20 minutes are great, but it should've been over not long after that. Hero should've won too, about 14 times.


Four Corner Survival
Homcide vs. Kenny King vs. El Generico vs. Mark Briscoe - **1/2
This gave me some hope on the Daniels/Briscoe match from SoCal 2.


ROH World Championship
Roderick Strong(c) vs. Jay Briscoe - ****
"Man up, motherfucker!" Brutally stiff match as you'd expect from the two. Briscoe's nearfalls were incredibly believable, which is definitely something you like to see.


Overall: 7.5/10
Two great matches, another good one that was overbooked, but then just a whole lot of filler. Still, a good showing to kick off the year.
