I am just now getting into ROH and am liking what I have seen for the most part. I just watched in the past few days Survival Of The Fittest 2007 and Finale Battle 06. The SOTF final was dissapointing because of the way Hero was used. Final Battle featured one of my favorite ROH matches that I have seen which is Kings Of Wrestling/Briscoes. What other shows from 06/07 should I see (I have already watches Respect Is Earned, Man Up and the 100th Show. I am also in the middle of watching Driven).
06 - Dragon Gate Challenge, Supercard of Honor, Better Than Our Best, Ring of Homicide, Glory By Honor V Night 2, Weekend of Champions Night 2
07 - FYF: Liverpool, FYF: Finale, Good Times, Great Memories, Manhattan Mayhem II, Death Before Dishonor V Nights 1 & 2, Supercard of Honor II, All Star Extravaganza III, Glory By Honor VI Night 1 (I also hear Night 2 is great)
Anything from 05 and on is a GREAT starting place for new fans since a lot of the wrestlers from there will be recognizeable for fans of WWE or TNA and a lot of great stuff happened from 05-07 that still have repercussions today and whatnot. Plus getting into it then is a lot easier since the quality seemed to have gone up a step from 02-04 (even though 04 still has some great shows and must see stuff). Also the "Summer of Punk," Embassy/GeNext feud, Aries & Strong title reign, Danielson's title reign, and CZW/ROH war are stuff no fan of ROH should miss.
