Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Shiima Xion vs. Ricochet(Absolution V): ***3/4
This is for the Intense Division Championship with this match being a surprise for both men. This was a really rad cruiserweight style match-up. The match was given time and then the wrestlers took care of the rest. These guys did some spotty stuff but it never felt like TOO much. Ricochet is super fluid, SHOCKING. Xion is a guy who never really looked to be the wrestler I thought he would be when entering TNA. I donít know if he looked as good as Ricochet but not many men can hang in the flippy floppy stylings of Ricochet. There was one particular instance where the camera work was off in a good way where Ricochet rolled backwards into an insane Pele Kick that it didnít look like Xion even saw coming. There wasnít a ton of big moves that got kicked out of down the stretch, more like signature moves that almost NEVER end it, but since to lend to the importance of the match they certainly made sure to add a little extra for the finish.


Was going to watch Danielson vs Gargano but got distracted so I thought I'd just throw this up. It won't stay at the top spot but this was really good and not a match I really see talked about from AIW. I remember at the time I first watched this I thought this was rather close to the main event in quality.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

If you're looking for the Best Of AIW, I'd have to say that Rickey Shane Page vs. Vincent Nothing from Absolution a few years back will be very high on that list. I haven't seen it myself yet but people call it the best match AIW ever had and the MV I saw of it was one of the things that made me want to check out RSPs work.

The results of HOE9 make me sad. I knew that what happened was going to happen, but yeah.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

When did AIW get real commentary for their show? b/c I honestly can't watch their product with the commentary blaring over the sound system. Tried & failed. First time something obnoxious that wasn't the wrestling took me out of the sport.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.
Those lacking imagination take refuge in reality.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

I want to say a couple of years ago like close to the end of 2010 because until then I also tried to watch AIW and had to shut it off because of the sometimes unbearable live commentary.

There's two matches I could think off that'd do this, one had to happen but not so much the other one. BTW, are the Zema Ion and the Hutton/Donst matches going to be on the dvd with TNA's no talent on DVD policy?

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

I read last night that Ion's match will NOT be on DVD yet strangely I didn't read anything about Hutter's match not being on DVD. Oh and from that show RSP had a supa bloody FACE so I feel that'll appeal to a few people here.

And thanks sXeMope it is certainly on my to watch list. If you know any "under-the-radar" matches feel free to let me know. Every match I watch I'm going to try to review so by the end I'll hopefully have a nice beefy excel spreadsheet that I can look at for reference. If anyone at all has pre-2010 recommendations for AIW feel free to chime in. Not as familiar what are some consensus good-great matches from that period.

The live commentary thing is horrible. I've never seen any AIW shows with it but I know with the Hoodslam show I watched I would have preferred no commentary because it was near impossible to hear. Sucks too because there are a ton of old school AIW shows that I want to check out but won't because of the commentary.

-

I agree that it had to happen (Assuming we're talking about the same match) but it's still slightly sad to see it happen. Though It'll be interesting to see what happens from here. I could give my hopes but that would spoil the show.

Hutter's will probably be on the DVD because he was likely booked before he signed with TNA. Ion's won't as far as I know. They COULD release it for free though because QPro did that when they had Bad Influence vs. Young Bucks. (Whatever happened to QPro anyways?)

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

anyone else having problems with highspots check out right now?

Put something in my cart, and then when I add something else the first thing I had in there will no longer be there.
