Re: Indy Wrestling
Start out with ROH from its start to about 2006. Since you're probably a fan of Punk and Joe, it'll be a good way to get in.
CZW can be hit or miss, but their hits are fucking awesome and their misses can be awesome train wrecks. Their crowd (especially the shit they say) is funny as shit.
You'll probably like Chikara. It's a little wacky, but it's also extremely entertaining.
Some advice if you want to get into Japanese Puroresu: It's much more about one-upsmanship. Who can take more strikes/suplexes/slams. The finishers also work in tiers. For example: Kenta Kobashi has a lariat for guys who clearly aren't in his league, a backdrop suplex for people better, a moonsault when it really counts, and the Burning Hammer when he has nothing left.
