For the longest time I disliked AIW purely because their ring looked horrible. I think I actually bought Hell On Earth 8 after realizing that Eric Ryan played Kirst in PRIME. Took a while to get used to it but they're currently one of my favorite promotions and their latest DVDs is a shoe-in for my SMV cart. DGUSA is another one. I haven't seen a lot of shows, but every show I've seen has horrible lighting, or maybe it's the reflection from the ring. Looks really horrible. My mood also affects how much I enjoy something. Sometimes I just don't feel like watching something and enjoy it less. Maybe my prior experiences with ROH have been one, or a combination of those. But throughout the Ring Of Hardcore DVD I didn't really get that at all. The only negative I've experienced thus far is that the older footage has rather shaky camera work (Which I let slide considering it's age), and the ROH/CZW COD has no commentary.
Oh don't worry I'm the same way man. Some of the DGUSA shows have absolutely awful lighting (it seemed to get worse and worse after the first show which was pleasing to the eye) and commentary volume is a reason why I now stay away from PWX. That shit is WAY too loud.

Yep. Everyone thought it was a step in the right direction, then shit just got worse and worse until we all gave up.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

So what's the indy scene like now? I last watched when Black was on top of ROH and some of the Steenerico stuff. I like some PWG action. I watched PWG Ten, Willie Mack looks to me like a top dog imo, I think he has a lot in him. Rich Swan is alright too. Who's the people looking to replace the Aries', Danielson's, and Nigel's of the indy scene?

Kevin Steen and Johnny Gargano are guys I'd consider to be "on top" right now when it comes to the indies. I think the problem we've been facing in the last few years are that guys are signed before they really get to the level of Danielson, Aries, Nigel, etc.

Anybody know anyone (reliable) who sells the Anatomy Of A Feud: ROH vs. CZW set? From what I can find, it was made by SecondComing but from my searches I haven't really been able to find much in the way of how to contact him. I know it's on the torrent sites, but it's dead on XWT and I'm not on PWT. I've asked for it to be re-seeded, but I'm willing to pay for it if I can't get it re-seeded.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

New thread, eh? Well random bit to mention:

PWG Is Your Body Ready? was a better show than expected. Yet to watch the ironman, but will soon. Probably tonight. Or tomorrow. I've been busy.

I can see why some would dislike (or hate) the opener, but I thought RockNES Monsters were actually the reason why I managed to have some fun with it on the second watch. Never seen a match where I liked Johnny Yuma more than Brian Cage. Not even in the RockNES vs Fightin Taylor-Boys tags.

Davey vs O'Reilly was bleh, but at least not AS awful as it is in ROH or AAW with those two. PWG crowd made portions pop. If the match would have been short, I probably would have been fine with it. Like five minutes of their strike exchanges and crap. All about the select sequences in that one. It's crap for an extended period, something good happens, crap, etc. Finish looked slick for those two; with the right guy going over too. I don't want to see it again, however, this was the most tolerable "Team Ambition" (gosh I hate that) combo seen ever. Good ol PWG. Helps with the crowd & commentary.

FIST vs Dojo Bros was FUN. Chuck Taylor getting on commentary for a brief moment = Fuck you who hate him. You know who you are. JERKS.

Recall some saying Steen vs Younger was underwhelming, however I didn't see it. Another match where it went about the way I expected it to. They thrashed each other and I was digging it. Death Valley Driver spot on the apron blew my mind.

Speaking of blowing minds, the Young Bucks tag. Those guys deserve to be punished by the roster on how they make everyone else look bad simply by comparison. You can't stop 'em. I'd hate to be on a show and have to follow them up. Del Sol was top notch here on his last night. Looked like the biggest threat. Fox didn't do anything except for some logical moments in the end, so that worked. Only part of the match I didn't like was when he was on offense for about two minutes; that sucked. But it was over quickly and that was for the best. Excalibur & Chuck Taylor burying Fox on commentary was the greatest part though. FINALLY someone says the things I say.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Did you laugh hysterically at Fox's weak ass strike attempts? Cause I did.

Gave **** to both tag matches, both loaded with superkicks and both equally awesome.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Not a fan of Fox lol.

I love playing as PWG in EWR/TEW an adding a midcard title called the Guerrila Warfare title, yeah I'm so original eat me LOL

Anyways, I loved PWG Ten, the World title match was eh though, the opener was fantastic, definite thriller and more exciting than a lot of the middle. Candice/Ryan put on hilarious performance and Willie Mack is just spectacular in my opinion.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Did Davey and O'Reilly ever go one-on-one in AAW? I don't believe so, though I can see how their tag stuff would make people spew.

Oh of course. I always gave Fox shit for his awful strikes. Glad both Excalibur & Taylor called him out on it.

Yeah, I was only referring to their tag team work.
