Well, for the past few years I have neglected indy wrestling due to the style being completely different from mainstream wrestling, but just recently I've gained an appreciation for good technical wrestling and I've been watching old WWE matches, and have decided to give the indies another shot. Can someone tell me about the matches I should watch? So far I have:

Nigel Mcguiness vs Bryan Danielson- Unification match

CM Punk vs Samoa Joe where they tie at 60 minutes

Those two are a good start. Not sure if you want just technical, but i'll throw out a handful of major ROH matches

- Joe vs. Kobashi (Self Titled)

- Dragon Gate 6 Man (Supercard of Honor)

- Danielson vs. Kenta (Glory By Honor 5 Night 2)

- Danielson vs. Strong (Vendetta)

- Briscoes vs. Steenerico Ladder War ( Man Up )

- Davey Richards vs. Kenta (Supercard of Honor 4)

- ROH vs. CZW Cage of Death ( Death Before Dishonor 4)

Yeah, I was looking for technical wrestling, similar to what you would see from the Smackdown Six I guess. But nonetheless thanks, I should be able to find the technical matches in that list.

Danielson vs. Shelley, ROH Arena Warfare.

Actually, just find Bryan Danielson matches and you'll be doing pretty good.

Man Up! is essential viewing but not technical though. How about Aries vs. Nigel from Rising Above '07?

Danielson vs. Shelley, ROH Arena Warfare.
That's a weird match though. It was specifically designed to piss off the CZW fans in attendance. It was like heel vs. heel.

My advice would be to go and watch all the Danielson-McGuiness matches. Then start throwing in thier matches with Davey Richards. Then through in the 3 of them against Claudio Castignoli.

If you only want the tehnical masterpieces then just go through every Danielson match. Dont dismiss matches like Ladder War I, Cage Of Death, Joe/Kobashi, the Dragon Gate 6 mans, Ki/Styles, etc.

Yeah Danielson matches are where its at. Any of his series against McGuinness or matches with Aries, his match with Shelley, Roddy, Low Ki or any one basically.

If you want more recent ones check out any of the Davey Richards matches in my sig, especially vs Tyler Black from DBD or any Kings Of Wrestling if your interested in Tag Team wrestling.

And that made it even better. Plus there was fantastic matwork that actually built to a great, but not overdone, finishing stretch. Not just matwork for the sake of matwork, but stuff that had a purpose, and tied in with the story going in.

Danielson/Shelley is fucking awesome btw. It's not the greatest match of Danielson reign wrestling wise, but fuck me it's so much fun to sit through. Danielson cuts one of his best promos ever, even threatening to punch a little girl! The match being heel vs heel works perfectly with the CZW crowd btw so that was in no way a downside.
