Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
I have to say, one of ROH's major advantages for their TV show in comparison to WWE is their heavy use of pre-recording interview promos. Its amazing how not having to either cut a promo in front of a crowd or cut a backstage promo live really helps out mediocre guys not come off as ****. The only guys who come off as cringeworthy even in these videos are Edwards, Richards, and Caprice & Coleman. Provided, most guys aren't good, but only those 4 guys come off as bad and even Richards seems to have his good moments. Even the likes of O'Reilly and WGTT come off as tolerable.
Roderick has also impressed me a lot. His cocky, jerk jock routine is pretty funny, and unlike WWE heels, he isn't presented as a whiny bitch, just a douche. These promos are so much better than the video wires from earlier in the year. I still don't think he can be a top guy for ****, but the guy is personally growing on me.
