Nah, that was a Mexican promotion that shut down a couple decades back.

Scratch that, yes it is. UWE/UWA/UWA Hardcore. Would it kill promoters to differentiate their products?

Yeah. I didn't think Joe E. Slick was that bad though. He wasn't great, but there are worse. Not sure if he'll be involved in this incarnation of UWA though. IIRC Osiris said in one of the blog posts on the UWA website that he bought his brothers (Joe E. Slick) half of the company.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

PWG: Pearl Habra

The Young Bucks vs. Hook Bomberry and TJ Perkins


It started out a little rough and I thought I was going to see something boring. The Bucks seemed terribly boring at first as they seemed to mostly do arm drags and then put guys in arm bars. And itís not like Hook or Perkins are filled with personality either. Things did pick up and I did see some strategy of the Bucks to work the arm of whoever they were in the ring with. Nick Jackson eventually ended up getting isolated and I was impressed with how good some of the tag team moves looked. Nick makes the tag and Matt comes into the ring. Everything was going well but then seconds after making a hot tag after being alone in the ring Nick immediately comes back into the ring for double team. Itís stuff like that why I like the Bucks a lot more now then what I used to. They made the hot tag and things were fun for a while before we got the end. Solid opener and not a bad match. The beginning wasnít great and there were a few dumb moments but it was mostly fun.
**Ĺ


2-Out-Of-3 Falls
Roderick Strong vs. Rocky Romero

I liked it a lot. They were stiff as hell and both guys showed off a little bit of a mean streak. I would have preferred if one guy had decided to play more of a heel. I thought Strong was just going to go full heel at the start of the match but that didnít last as he was playing to the crowd soon after. They were close to having an amazing match and with a real heel I think they would have pulled it off. As it stands what they did was really good.
***Ĺ


Scorpio Sky and Ronin vs. Phoenix Star and Zokre

I liked this a lot. Ronin was pretty great here. He was so much bigger than his opponents but he still took some good bumps for them and his offense was pretty devastating looking. You had some cool spots from Phoenix Star and Zokre and you had some bad looking spots from them as well. All in all you had a big man in red lucha gear beating the shit out of little guys and taking big bombs as well and you two guys flying all over the place. It makes it hard to dislike the match.
***


No Disqualification Match:
Chris Hero w/Candice LaRae vs. Human Tornado

I really like the chemistry these guys have together. They are able to convey that they dislike each other a lot but they do moves that you wouldnít normally think are appropriate in a blood feud and make it work. They had a good brawl and fought all over the place and used a bunch of weapons. I loved their brawling outside the ring and they had some brutal spots inside the ring as the match wore on. I think Iíve seen almost every match in this feud and Iíve yet to find a match that I didnít like.
***ľ


PWG Tag Team Championship Match:

The Dynasty(c) w/Jade Chung vs. The Young Bucks

There were some good things about the match but overall I wasnít impressed very much. The Bucks felt like underdogs at the end and I was happy that they were able to get that part right. Joey Ryan and Scott Lost are frustrating because theyíre funny as heels before the match starts but once the bell rings they have a hard time showing any of that personality. The Bucks also did a few things that annoyed me. For the second time of the night there was a hot tag and then the guy making the hot tag was back into the match fine soon after. This time he tagged back in right after being isolated for a long time. Heel Young Bucks are just so much better.
**ľ


PWG Championship Match:

Low-Ki(c) vs. El Generico

I donít know why anyone would want to work with Low-Ki. Heís going to get in 90% of the offense, heís going to stiff you, and then heís going over cleanly. It was a good match because Generico is one of the most sympathetic people ever and my favorite guy to watch challenge for a title. He always make me doubt that heís going to lose and he always makes me want to see him win. He got beat up bad and showed a lot of heart. The match was super entertaining and he almost had me fooled for a second. Glad the show ended on a high note.
***ĺ


Itís not an amazing show or anything but I signed up for a free week in the new Highspots website and watched this. Oh and it was under 2 hours so it makes for easy viewing. Plenty of quality matches despite none being classics or anything.

I'm going to Wrestlecon in Dallas this year and I love the random matches like these that they book. It's all part of the fun of their cards. You get just a weird mix of old WWE guys and some amazing indy wrestlers. A little something for everyone.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

does wwnlive do discounts if you order multiple Mania weekend shows?

I'm thinking both EVOLVE shows and the Supershow probably too.

Somewhat, yes. They typically do the Buy 3 Get 1 Free type deal where if you buy all three from the weekend you get to choose one from the past (any WWN company I believe) that you can watch VOD anytime for free. I'm not sure whether you have to choose live iPPV only ($9.99 each) or live iPPV and VOD ($14.99 each) to get that deal though.

If they announce something on the alerts, I'll be sure to post it for you.

Note: You do not get a discount on the actual WrestleMania weekend shows. It is a rib I assume at this point since people have been clamoring for it for some time.

Nothing quite as outdated as this mixed-event card

Boxing: Roy Jones Jr. vs. A fan
MMA: Ken Shamrock vs. Dan Severn

Really? I didn't know that then if that's the case. Guess it's $14.99 either way.

Not sure if this is a shot taken at me because I actually made a thread about this, or if you genuine just found it and were comparing.

Either way, yes, both have some folks past their prime. I thought Lance Storm had a retirement match a while back, but I may have been thinking of someone else. Jerry Lynn maybe? Idk

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

yeah, he did Jerry Lynn's retirement match. Or at least one of the matches on Lynn's retirement tour.

No way I am missing Ricochet/Ospreay

First taste of the recent UWA show. Can't wait to see the full show. Kinda miss Joe E. Slick on commentary but I'm sure I'm in the minority there.
