Cheeseburger

Perhaps I'm just not getting it, but can someone explain to me the appeal of ROH's Cheeseburger?

No i can't explain it, i'm sorry. My turn to ask something. Can you explain the appeal of creating own threads about subjects like these instead of posting in the official ROH thread?

Spoiler for Luchas of the Year List 2015:

Re: Cheeseburger

I don't get his appeal either. He's an ROH school graduate and basically the next Grizzly Redwood. I think he was named Cheeseburger because Charlie Haas wanted to eat a cheeseburger after seeing how skinny he was. He's also in the top prospect tournament for some reason which he'll probably lose in the first round. He's not really that good in the ring and really needs to put on 50 lbs. I remember watching his match against Bennett and maria, he could barely knock down Bennett ( and Maria too)

Re: Cheeseburger

He's one of the most over guys on the roster currently, crowds love him. I remember reading that one show he got the second biggest pop of the night behind Kevin Steen. If something's over and people love it you may as well run with it. He's pretty much ROH's Spike Dudley. A loveable underdog. I don't have a problem with it.

Re: Cheeseburger

I think the appeal is it's funny watching this small, skinny fuck trying to fight guys much bigger than him.

Re: Cheeseburger

I've heard really good things about his match with Roddy against reDRagon. Haven't seen it, but Roddy is reliably awesome, and reDRagon is one of the best acts in the company, so if Cheeseburger is as bizarrely over as I hear he is, I can buy it being pretty awesome.

My Ratings System

DUD/No Stars = I hated it.

★ = I didn't like it.

★★ = Eh. It was there.

★★★ = I liked it.

★★★★ = I loved it.

★★★★★ = I could not have loved it more.

I saw on the Hoopla show which all around was a lot of fun. It was the best match on the show and got a lot of positive reviews. The crowd was crazy for that match. (Highly recommend watching that entire show btw)

Re: Cheeseburger

I still want Haas/Cheeseburger.

Honestly now, I feel like right now he's stale and the joke isn't funny anymore. Especially after the horrid QT/Cheeseburger "match" and the TV match with him and Bennett.

I went back just to check it out because I didn't really remember anything about the match sticking out as bad. Watching it back it was a standard big vs little man match. Nothing special, just a throwaway match to do the segment with the radio host. What stuck out as horrid about it?

I think the character's a nice breakaway from the seriousness of ROH and has only been going on for less than a year. It's still crazy over with the crowd, so I don't think he's overstayed his welcome. I do wish we could've got a conclusion to Haas/Cheeseburger however.
