    would imagine this is an afternoon show considering it's the same night as Elimination Chamber

    regardless I will be watching this

    If it's made from Legos and built by Freight Train, I would pay SIX DOLLARS for that show

    I thought their iPPVs were more than $5? If it's five bucks then we have to get this and watch together in the chat.

    $5? Heck, WrestleMania is only 10 bucks. Who do these guys think they are?

    Kind of unrelated, but highspots always gives you an offer for something extra at the end of your order. This time it was Pro Wrestling Superstars from Wrestle Reunion 2012 for $5. So i got it, and it was actually pretty great. If you buy something on highspots and they offer it to you for $5, get it!

    It was at Wrestle Reunion, so all those Legends were just already there. Then I guess they just brought in the indie guys.

    But yea, Richards/Smith, Generico/Sasuke vs. The Bucks, Steen/Dreamer and mascarita dorada's (aka el torito) match were all really good.

    So i figured the ippv would be an afternoon show since you know, there's a WWE PPV tonight.

    Nope. 7 PM. Guess I'll wait for the VOD.

    $5 live is now up.

    Also not exactly $5W related, but highspots is selling a bunch of DVDs for $5. I haven't ordered DVDs online in ages but some of these shows for $5 is tempting.

    That was one of the few CZW shows from last year that I didn't watch. I heard Kasai/Masada was crazy, but very very very deathmatchy. However, I heard the rest of the show fell flat.


    Also the two JAPW dvds on there, I think I bought both of them for $2-3 each from Highspots years ago.

    Admittedly, I have a soft spot in my heart for really crazy death matches. I know they don't do much for a lot of people. But I can enjoy it quite a bit. Also, for $5 bucks the show could stink and I'd be okay with it.

    However there are quite a few more shows on this sale that I'd get first.

    $5Live is a little different from the normal live shows, it's a lot more clips that colt plays over and over again as opposed to full matches, and while it's not boring, it's not the best effort

    however the live angle and match is well worth the $5

    So i splurged and made a big order:

    DGUSA Freedom Fight 2012
    DGUSA Fearless 2012
    Brian Kendrick's King of Flight~! Tournament
    CZW Wrestlecon
    ROH All Star Extravaganza 2002
    $5W Live 5 - digital DL

    Beware shipping for me was like $9. But $40 for 6 shows is still a bargain.

    Oh I enjoy good death matches, and this is one of them. Yeah $5 for this isn't a bad deal.

    Highspots has a Freight Train documentary up now

    Overall it's a fun watch, they interviewed, cliff, colt, marty, rip rogers, george south, brian kendrick among others, and it shows footage of Freight Train going to the UK and wrestling for PCW in front of a crowd of about 850 people

    Plus as a bonus there is a second dvd with an unreleased $5 Wrestling show, and it's really fun, Big Donnie might be my favorite wrestler, like 95% of his matches turn into shoots now where he just beats the shit out of his opponent and that happens here
