Some 2003 MLW to maybe look at.

------------------------------------

Revolutions 5/9/03

OK show. Went way too long, though.

 

-Punk v Raven is pretty good. IDK just HOW far into their feud you want to go, but this didn't look essential.

 

-Parka/Sabu re-match is good. Probably needed more hate, but it was enjoyable and not too long.

 

-I do not remember Funk/Corino at all. If Will watched it for his Funk set he'll know whether or not it needs to be on there, I guess.

 

------------------------------

Hybrid Hell 6/20/03

OK show again, probably nothing to actually put on the yearbook. Maybe the main event.

 

-Sabu v Parka III looks to be happening before Parka takes off his mask and reveals he's Mikey Whipwreck in his entrance. Brings the Sinister Minister with him and he and Sabu have a niceish match. 'Niceish' as in 'good', not 'niceish' as in 'they don't seem to hate each other's fucking guts'. THEY DO.

 

-Another inessential Punk/Raven, unless someone thinks everything about their feud should be on the set.

 

-Corino v Funk barbed wire match is the main event. Pretty brutal stuff. Joey Styles flips out at this and that and the crowd really want Corino to be stabbed in the face or something. Post match is the Extreme Horsemen getting the better of Funk and Steve Williams until the Sandman hits the ring.

 

----------------------------------

Rise of the Renegades 7/26/03

Some pretty good stuff here, Funk/Abby being on the set might be cool.

 

-Sabu and Mikey have another match. Mikey goes really heel and Fonzie shows up for the first time after La Parka chucked stuff on him. The Minister doing a Fonzie impression was AMAZING. Cool match, might be better than the first one.

 

-CM Punk/Michaels Shane v Raven/Norman Smiley. I enjoyed this probably more than I should have. There's 'feud' stuff from previous shows, but this could be watched without any of that and be enjoyed the same. Probably my favourite non-main event or La Parka (or Super Crazy v Red) MLW match so far.

 

-Funk/Abby was pretty disgusting for some of it. Once Funk got the fork he REALLY looked to be digging into Abby's head. Funk was a great old man face (while also being a psycho). Yeah, this is cool (and disgusting).

 

--------------------------------------

Summer Apocalypse 8/22/03

Really, there's some 'not bad' stuff, but by the time it got to the main event I didn't care. Funk/Lawler is a Funk/Lawler match and Punk/Raven have a 'Straightedge Rules Match' or something. Nothing else that's probably as good or as important or as well known as the worst stuff that'll make this set.

 

 

Haven't watched War Games yet.

The first Funk-Lawler match of 2003 was 4/12 in JAPW which I saw live and was really, really good. Dunno how it compares to their other matches they had that year.

I second the Teddy Hart ROH mess, especially if you can get your hands on the "ROH Uncensored" release from way back when, which supposedly has footage of the backstage fallout of Teddy's antics.

I watched a whole lot of 2003 ROH in the last year and something that might go under the radar and not a great match per say but worth a look is Steve Cornio vs CM Punk 25/10 Empire State Showdown for the extended ring entrances alone. Also a fun watch with 2014 eyes is AJ Styles vs Danielson 1/11 Main Event Spectacles.
