Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

The Field of Honor was a round robin like tournament. The participants included Colt Cabana, BJ Whitmer, Dan Maff, Matt Stryker, Jimmy Rave, John Walters, Xavier, and Chris Sabin.

The tournament consisted of two blocks. Block A and Block B. The 8 wrestlers were divided up into the two blocks. From their it became pretty much like round robin. In the end the two wrestlers from each block with the best records went onto the finals and whoever won the finals recieved "perks" in 2004.

Ah, got it now thanks. I was wondering while looking over some results it mentioned Blocks and such. I might have to check that out some time. Once again thanks for the Info.

Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

Here's a brief review of Honor Reclaims Boston.

1. Nigel McGuinness vs. John Walters
Good opener. For some reason I enjoyed watching Walters especially in his feud with Xavier and it was great to see him back in ROH and was a good way to get the crowd fired up. The match was good but what had me scratching my head was the 3 false finishes at the end. I don't think I've ever seen a match so low on a card have so many false finishes near the end. I found it to be unnecessary but maybe it was just to get the crowd fired up more.

2. Daizee Haze vs. Mercedez Martinez
Decent match. Watching Shimmer is a guilty pleasure of mine and I was hoping for a good women's match but was pretty disappointed. The match was a tad short and should've gone a bit longer. However, I understand the logic behind it because the crowd didn't seem too into the macth so Gabe didn't want the crowd to be killed. Nonetheless the match was decent and hopefully was can get some more Shimmer on ROH shows.

3. Christopher Daniels vs. Chris Hero
Good match. I watched their PWG match recently and I really liked that match so it's fair to say my expectations were raised for this match. The match was good not as good as their PWG match but good nonetheless. My only beef with this match is I would've liked to have seen it gone longer.

4. Matt Sydal vs. Claudio Castagnoli
Another good match. The feud between the KOW and Sydal & Daniels has kept me interested and with these good matches between the two teams it's not that hard. Fun match that was slighly better than the Sydal/Hero match we saw at MCM.

5. Samoa Joe, Homicide, & BJ Whitmer vs. The Briscoes & Steve Corino
Good match. I was really into this match. I liked how the match began as a brawl and would've liked to have seen them brawl a bit longer. The match recieved a real good amount of time which got me more into the match (hey, what can I say I like long matches). Good match that further build on quite a few feuds going on.

6. Colt Cabana vs. Jimmy Rave
Decent match. I was hoping for a bit more from these two but this was an after intermission match and those matches usually are decent at best. However, it was a decent match that began the evolution of Jimmy Rave.

7. Bryan Danielson vs. Delirious
Very good match. These two had a great encounter at ROH and this match was almost as good as that match except for the crowd. The crowd at ROH believed that Delirious could actually win the title and really got behind him. However, this crowd pretty much knew that Delirious was going to lose and they really didn't get behind him. Minus the crowd this was a really good match that will be enjoyed but all.

8. Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. KENTA & Davey Richards
Great match. ROH this year has been on a roll as far as tag matches are concerned. They have the best tag team wrestlng in the world bar none. I was really looking forward to this match but I couldn't help but feel a tad disappointed. When I read live reports numerous people called it "One of the stiffest matches ever" or "The stiffest match ever". I didn't feel this match was either. To be honest the stiffness didn't really pick up until the last 5 mins or so. Nonetheless, the match was great. Lots of fun to watch and stiff. I really dug the last 5 mins or so of the match. There was also claim to this match being a MOTYC. At this moment in time I'd have to say it just missed being a MOTYC. However, maybe a second watch will change my mind.

Hey Mystery, how was the crowd heat on the HRB main? It was unbelievable live, and sounded awesome on the wire, but I've heard people say it didn't come off well on the dvd.

To be honest it didn't really pick up until the end. It didn't seem like the DVD did the crowd justice. I also read about the crowd's reaction and was really looking forward to hearing them but it didn't really start to get hot until near the end.

This is another reason why ROH needs to give the option of commentary or not. I know PWG does it and they've been fine. I think ROH needs to put that option into their DVDs to help give people like myself and others a more live feel.

Yeah having the option would be a nice feature, to choose if you want to hear the wrestlers/crowd or listen to Bower/Prazak instead. Except for PWG's commentary is hilarious though

Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

In my opinion, I thought the PWG commentary for Battle Of Los Angeles 2006 was bad. I actually turned the commentary off anyways since i'm on winter break i've been watching BOLA 2006 and i'm almost finished Night 3. So later tommorow I will have my review up for all 3 nights.

Re: Official ROH DVD Help Thread

Yeah, BOLA 2006 commentary was horrible but sometimes in shows they hit home & be funny as hell. The best commentating I heard was Hollywood Globetrotters. Joey Ryan/Super Dragon comment was funny as hell.
