I would think so. I have wXw DVDs that come with English commentary and some that don't but for the Gold Carat I would say yes since there would be a ton of people there that speak English.

ROH A New Dawn Review:

Monster Mafia vs. reDRagon - ***3/4. Very good opener, was really impressed by Monser Mafia. Would love to see more of them.

Mark Briscoe vs. Silas Young - *3/4. Really basic match, I get why but nothing interesting happend here.

Adrenaline RUSH vs. Lethal & Elgin - ***1/4.

Honor Rumble - N/R.

Michael Bennett vs. Eddie Edwards - ***.

Jimmy Jacobs vs. Kevin Steen - *. What the fuck was that? the match lasted 5 minutes at best and was just big move, after big move and then the finish happend. Dumb match, dumb booking. Was really looking forward to the match actually...

Matt Taven vs. Davey Richards vs. Roderick Strong - ***. Fun match but Taven's booking is so fucking lazy.. Can't stand it anymore.

Adam Cole vs. Mark Briscoe - ***. Good and short Main Event.

Overall: 6.75. Solid show with Monster/reDRagon being the MOTN.

So as part of Gabe's Black Friday sale, they've discounted the live showings of the upcoming 12/6 and 12/7 FIP shows to just $4.99. Undercard's probably going to be shit, but I'm tempted to pay $5 just for Strong vs Swann.

I'm pretty sure Jimmy was coming off a concussion from 2-3 weeks earlier after being KO'ed in AAW which is why his Steen match was so short. Also explains why he beat Silas Young in about 10 seconds the week before.

I don't think so. At least not the 2013 tournament. Doesn't mention it on the wXw shop listing.

I guess I've decided to go on my own project and I don't know why. I'm going to try and make a list of what I consider the best AIW matches. I don't remember watching JLIT 2012 Nt.2 so I looked at some of the more interesting matches on it. This project got off to a rough start.

AIW

Willie Mack vs. ACH 5/12/12:**1/2
This is a match of two guys that were considered the next crop of great indie talents. Mack was making some significant headway in PWG but since 2012 hasnít had much of a chance to show off his talents in that promotion. They work a nice little big man versus little man match but not much more. Part of the match revolves around ACH going for a firemanís carry but canít get it until the very end. Average match but nothing wrong with that per se.

Louis Lydon vs. Brian Kendrick 5/12/12: *1/2
Really frustrating match. Lydon slaps on lots of fun armwork but it gets zero pay off and feels like it meant nothing in the end. Thatís the opposite way limb work should be done. It should serve a purpose in the landscape of the match. UGH! So with the match ending so easily in Kendrick's favor I felt like I got a match with 90% filler. The fun armwork earns that whole *1/2

BJ Whitmer vs. Brian Kendrick 5/12/12:***1/4
This was a ton better than I thought it was gonna be. This wasnít wrestled at a blistering pace or anything but they worked their way to the ending which was nicer than most indie matches. Liked how when Kendrick hit Sliced Bread #2 the first time, BJ rolled out of the ring. It is something like that that gets over him being a vet. Whitmer ending this with a nasty kick gets all the wins since 9/10 times that gets kicked out of for the wrestlerís more established finisher. It looked to killer to not win it.

Tim Donst vs. Ethan Page vs. Flip Kendrick vs. FaÁade 5/12/12:**
There were three wrestlers that I thought put in some decent performances but then there was FaÁade. If you think Fox is the worst then I think you are wrong when it comes to random flippy guys. FaÁadeís springboards take too damn long to set up and are SO telegraphed it breaks any sense of believability. Donst will always be a guy I think has good performances but rarely do I see him put on great matches. In this one he looks like the stud of the group. Page does some fun stuff in this. Kendrick is a flippy dude I can enjoy in this capacity. He makes bigger guys look like murderers and times his shit moderately well.

ACH vs. Eric Ryan vs. BJ Whitmer 5/12/12:**3/4
Fine main event and end to the tournament. Wonky booking to eliminate Whitmer first via interference since he looked by far more in control than the other two. Again they set up Whitmer as a vet the way he dealt with both men. The Ryan and ACH ending section was decent enough, wasnít anything mind boggling but for two younger guys trying to finish off the night I am rather glad they didnít attempt to create that sense of epicness. They did throw in some kicking out of finishers at 1 which I donít think really help anything but since they didnít kick out of barely any big moves in the happenings I threw it up to attempt at adding intensity to the finals of a long tournament. Match didnít last very long which is probably for the best. Not sure if this match could have been too much better than what was offered. Eric Ryan isnít a guy I dislike though it felt rather generic compared to the charismatic ACH and the intimidating Whitmer.

For best AIW matches I recommend Johnny Gargano vs Bryan Danielson from Absolution (I think it was 5?), Michael Elgin vs Biff Busick from this year's JLIT, Elgin vs Alexander from the most recent Absolution and a less appreciated match I really enjoyed was ACH vs Davey Vega from the 2012 JLIT Night One

I have like 15 DVDs of theirs so I'm going to attempt to create a relatively comprehensive list. Trying to see if I can dug up some gems along the way if I can. Have to rewatch Gargano vs. Danielson from Abso V and AR Fox vs. ACH from SOC since I figure they are gonna end pretty high on my list. Watched the last 5 minutes of Elgin and Alexander and did NOT look like a match I'd give a shit about. Which is sad cause I feel Alexander is good and Elgin is a guy I actually can enjoy on occasion when he isn't trying to put on classics. I do feel Elgin vs. Busick is a match I might enjoy on tape. Was there live for it and Busick killed himself a couple times.
