GCW gets it. Really impressed with their set up this weekend and just the general way they view wrestling.

At one point I was drinking whiskey on the rocks and watching a man with no legs wrestle a match. And he was awesome.

I saw Black Label Pro at the same venue and that was a lot of fun too. I regret not going to more.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Finishing off Blackcraft before I jump into the next GCW show on my list, and I have to say this show has really sucked. Outside of Tanaka and Dickison having a super fun match, and Pinhead being the top heel, this hasn't been a good show.

The commentators are HORRIBLE. Stick to announcing Legend, you suck at this.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

I feel this needs more explaining. Today I watched the actor who plays Pinhead do a 10 minute speech about the black arts, while a bunch of dudes in hoods crucified a dude on an actual cross. No barbwire like Raven did in 96, because they're cowards.

SHLAK and G-RAVER had a fun match. As did Tanaka vs Dickinson. But every other match either sucked, or was a joke. Penta vs Grimm lasted 3 minutes. Fucking Gangrel got 6 minutes, and looed very bad.

Paige's mum was in a match where her opponent got jumped by some heels before the bell, she stood there and watched it happen, as did the ref. Who after another 20 seconds of this decided to ring the bell while she was still getting her ass kicked, and he counted her out.

David Starr vs Johnny IMPACT/PENIS/BLACKCRAFT/MORRISON/NITRO lasted SIX seconds. After the match, Matthew Justice who is feuding with Pinhead over blood, or some odd shit. Comes out and demands a title shot, Pinhead says over his dead body. SO JUSTICE TAKES OUT A KNIFE AND CUTS HIS THROAT TO KILL HIM. He then rushes the ring where the bells rings, hits MANY NAMES with a JIG N TONIC to win the belt in 5 seconds.

We then end the show with a battle royal that started with 7 minutes left on the file, so I thought it got cut. Nah, it lasted like 5. Highlights include JUSTIN CREDIBLE showing up to ZERO reaction to cane someone, and then get dumped. More awful wrestling happens while Arik drinks a PBR. Also, every fan starts to get up, and walk up the stairs and out the exit Some dude wins, and there is maybe 20 people watching at this point.

Absolute shit show.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

There's 2 things I know about the the Blackcraft show is that someone described the company as "so edgy it hurts" and that they had some tight time constraints because the venue was pretty strict about the show ending before 3am. So I think that's the reason so many of the matches were rushed.

Ultimately it's the company's fault though because it sounds like they were more concerned with storyline progression. In a lot of instances I understand that but for Mania weekend the people there probably don't know or care about your storylines. I was at Black Label Pro and I didn't have a single clue about any of the storylines and wasn't interested in anything they did in relation to them. I'm not going to see another show from them ever again. If you've got a story that can be told and completed in a speech before the match and the match I'm in. But trying to progress things doesn't work in that setting.


On a different night I finally got around to watching Blood Sport. It rules. I really wish I had taken an extra day off from work and gone to that.
