Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

PWG is still a lot of fun. There was no way that they would be able to keep up the high level of shows they were putting on a few years ago. I mean most of those guys that were having all of those matches aren't on the scene any more. PWG is suffering from the WWE's over-fishing just like everyone else has been.

Got my 7 Levels of Hate DVD and I'm a few matches in. I'm really enjoying it so far. I do have to say that I saw a match from Steel Domain Wrestling and I have to say that it might have the worst commentary I've ever heard.

Yep. There's no competition, unfortunately. The environment helps. You can have a shitty match and it still ends up being fun.

The environment is a big factor. Seems like there are quite a few fun promotions but no one has really went to the next level which is sad. Eventually one or two of them may break out in the next couple of years and then the scene would be more competitive and flat out better. But right now PWG is still king of the mountain in my eyes as well.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Eh nothing PWG could really do about losing so many guys over the last few years. The entire US Indy scene is missing guys of the level of talent of Danielson, Generico, The Kings, etc.

There weren't many better options than the guys they brought in out there. Who is really missing from their roster on the American indy scene that they could be using? Only guys I'd really like to see are some of the Chikara guys (Jig, Shard, King, The Colony mostly.)

Besides everyone always says they should use more of the So Cal guys but outside of the ones who get work in the other major promotions and Willie Mack most of those So Cal guys are the weakest on the roster when they get any type of featured match.

I think PWG is fine, but I like the Gabe guys (except Fox really, and he's done some fun stuff in PWG.) Especially outside of the usually boring DGUSA/Evolve environment.

Speaking of PWG, Dino Winwood mentioned this tonight about Quicksilver and Chris Bosh

Quicksilver: Has a kid now and hates wrestling. Doing well for himself
Bosh: Went off the grid and moved to Texas.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Spoiler for BOLA N1 REVIEW:


PWG Battle of Los Angeles 2013: Night 1

(2013/8/30)


1. Round 1: Kevin Steen vs. Chuck Taylor

**


2. Round 1: Brian Cage vs. Tommaso Ciampa

*3/4


3. Round 1: Johnny Gargano vs. Willie Mack

**3/4


4. Round 1: Roderick Strong vs. AR Fox

***1/4


5. Round 1: Joey Ryan vs. Drake Younger

**


6. Round 1: ACH vs. Tony Nese

***1/4


7. Round 1: Kyle O’Reilly vs. Trent?

***


8. Round 1: Michael Elgin vs. Rich Swann

***1/4


9. Adam Cole & The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson) vs. TJ Perkins & Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov)

***1/2


Eh, the last third saved the show… kind of. Odd booking, some match-ups were questionable and clearly lacked chemistry, not the BOLA material at all. The common flaws that hurt almost every match were the lack of heat, bland storytelling, comedy overstaying its welcome, etc. This was a second letdown from PWG in a row, mind you, and not even close to the last year’s opening night.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Okay, two matches into Night 2, and things improved, drastically. Those two matches had more quality than whole Night 1 combined. ***1/2 and ****1/4. Hopefully this is the sign that TEN and Night 1 were two minor hiccups, and nothing more.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Did you ever post a review for TEN, Chismo? I just remember reading a post in the MOTYC thread about nothing hitting the **** mark.
