  1. Just got back from watching it about an hour ago, honestly I thought it was perfect. If there was another screening on nearby now i'd go and watch it again, I enjoyed it that much.
  2. Most recent match of Istria, I rate his work very highly.
  3. Istria is the goods, he's a guy who's flown under the radar for years, even here in Australia.
  4. PWA's most recent show from a little over a week ago. They had some issues with the hard cam so decided to release the show in full for free. PWA was my local indy of choice when I lived in Sydney and even now, i'd say they're the best indy fed in Australia. I'd be curious to hear what people think of this show.
  5. Big fan of Cara Noir, his work has always been great, even when he was Blackbelt Tom Dawkins. He's now found the character work to go along with it.
  6. Some more stuff from the Australian indy scene of late. One of Robbie's most recent matches and his first back in Sydney after his New Japan tour. For a guy who's mostly been a career underdog babyface, Robbie has really gotten into the Bullet Club attitude, a lot of his matches since his return has him being more aggressive, kicking opponents in the face and such. Tyler Payne is a really talented younger guy, he had spent some time in the Fale Dojo in New Zealand and is apparently off to be a New Japan Young Lion soon, this was one of his first matches after dropping his Chikara-esque masked gimmick. Fun match. Also, PWA have a 1 month free trial on their streaming service at www.pwaplay.com using the code #PWSLEIGH which is a good intro to what's currently happening in the Australian scene. From Kyle Fletcher's brief return back to Australia from the UK. Tommy Knight has been wrestling just over a year I believe and is the understudy of Jonah Rock. He's a bigger dude, just over 6' and probably close to 300lbs and has a pretty extensive shoot background. Fun match with Fletcher being the more experienced guy out smarting his opponent and using his height advantage, while Knight just keeps moving forward.
  7. One of my local indies had Ken Shamrock on a show last night. He didn't do much, but he was super over and took a nice bump into the guard rail in his match. I'm trying to think when the last time he was on a pro wrestling show, early TNA maybe? Now I want to see against PCO or Nick Gage haha
  8. I don't mind when Brody does some agile stuff, but when he does it all the time it comes off as really forced. On the flip side though, seeing him wrestle live in Melbourne for WSW's Australia tour, he totally lived up to the hype. Being Marty Scurll's tag partner, he cut down on the flippy stuff and just concentrated on chops, clubbing blows, kicks to the face and lariats, made him look like a monster. I wonder if being on a tour with Walter and Jonah Rock might've inspired him to start wrestling like his size more? Speaking of which, hopefully WSW will finally get their online distribution going better as Jonah vs Walter on night 2 in Melbourne was awesome and Robbie Eagles vs Aries in Sydney apparently tore the house down.
  9. Debut show for a promotion in Adelaide, Australia. Main event of Jonah Rock vs Hideki Suzuki is very good. Also, AJ Istria has an excellent match with Adam Brooks. Istria I think would appeal to those on this board who are fans of Drew Gulak, Tim Thatcher, Fred Yehi and such.
  10. There was all the attention on the WWE show in town obviously, but in all honesty the MCW show in Melbourne the night before was one of the best indy shows of the year. He copped a lot of a shit for his one off appearance at Wrestlekingdom earlier this year, but Gino Gambino is a fantastic pro wrestler, his title defense against Robbie Eagles had the hottest crowd of any indy show i've seen anywhere this year.
  11. That's from the Herald Sun, which is a garbage newspaper anyway. If they're not talking about football or pushing Rupert Murdoch's political agenda they're barely interested.
  12. I find it funny that punching Ronnie Radke makes a guy a heel. Punching that piece of shit in the face makes me want to cheer the guy, shit band and he's a shit person. Fuck Falling In Reverse.
  13. More Australian indy stuff, a relatively small fed in one of the most remote cities on Earth gets an amazing match later this year with Jonah Rock vs Low Ki.
  14. Haha, XXXX is pretty hideous as well. It does make me laugh seeing hipsters loving Melbourne Bitter too. Any time I go to see a band in the city it's the beer of choice.
  15. I believe so. One of my friends is a Manga/Anime superfan and lost it for Naito's shirt choice. And yeah, VB is pretty rubbish. It's one of those beers that were always cheap and working class folks drank and now hipster folks seem to like. Those little throwdown bottles do have a bit of a kick to them though.
