Re: Checking out something new

I'd recommend Take No Prisoners aswell, along with New Horizons and Respect Is Earned II.

I think that watching some of the PPV's from 2008 will help to familiarize yourself with some of the storylines and wrestlers that have been going on.

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

ROH Glory By Honor VII

Jerry Lynn vs. Kenny King
I like this "The Wrestler" inspired storyline they got going for Lynn. Decent opener.

Brent Albright vs. Adam Pearce
(NWA Title)
Solid match, obviously not as good as the first one,but these guys really have good chemistry.

Go Shiozaki vs. Kevin Steen
(FIP Title)
Just about the same quality as in the NWA title match.

Bryan Danielson vs. Katsuhiko Nakajima
(GHC Jr. HW Title)
Great match , as you would expect,one thing i did not expect was the "this is awesome!" chant at the end, since this was no high flying spotfest.

Erick Stevens vs. Rhett Titus
Short match,as it should have been, liked the killer attitude of Stevens.

Roderick Strong, Jigsaw & Ruckus vs. Hero, Edwards & Hagadorn
Decent match, but just could not get into it that much.

Kensuke Sasaki vs. Claudio Castagnoli
Glad they kept it a bit shorter than you would expect.Just about the same quality as Sasaki's match against Strong back in Tokyo.

Nigel McGuinness vs. El Generico
(ROH Title)
Pretty good match, with a slow build to a chaotic end which i really enjoyed.

Steel Cage Warfare
I liked this a lot more then others have. Some nasty spots, but not one after another to the point you just don't care.

Overall the show was great, might be a bit hard to keep focused the entire time, cause this was longer than usual.

Re: Checking out something new

The pay-per-views are great for first time viewers. Take No Prisoners, Respect Is Earned and Driven are my recommendations.

Re: Checking out something new

If you're going to get into ROH, I highly recommend you to not have the mentality of "I just want to keep up to date." That may be normal with TNA and WWE, but you will be missing so much if you don't look into the past ROH shows. When I first got into ROH, I did that, but when I looked through the backlogs of the Indy Media and Megaposts sections, I realized what ROH is all about. When looking for ROH stuff to watch, try to enjoy each match or series of matches on their own and not how all of the storylines go over time. That is how I found to enjoy ROH to the fullest. Not to mention, you don't want to miss out on three 5-star matches, an epic interpromotional war, a fantastic world title lineage, and countless great matches and feuds. That being said, I recommend all of the pay-per views (you do want to keep up to date as well), Unified, Glory by Honor 5, Joe vs Kobashi, Joe vs Punk 2, Supercard of Honor, the list goes on and on. I guarantee that no matter what you buy or find, no matter how old it is, you will enjoy it (as long as Jeff Hardy is'nt in it).

Re: Checking out something new

There aren't that many PPVs so until you get into the mentality and the mindset to watch older stuff, i suggest you start with the first PPV and work your way through them.
PPVs follow their own storyline within the general ROH story (sort of) so you'll have consistency, be introduced to things and get great matches to boot

Re: Official Indy DVD Help Thread

ROH Return of the 187

Homicide/Jacobs Segment
Promo of the year for ROH.

Ruckus vs Jason Blade
Decent opener.

Brent Albright vs Jay Briscoe
This was ok, but expected a bit more out of these guys.

Necro Butcher vs Delirious vs Mark Briscoe
(No Dq)
Everything you would expect and more.Liked this one a lot.

Jerry Lynn vs Claudio Castagnoli
Thought it was a solid match, with good psychology. Lynn looks sharp.

Go Shiozaki vs Austin Aries
(FIP Title)
Great match, not as good as the one from 6th anniversary though.

Iron Team Match
Not one boring moment in this one, great to see Homicide in an ROH ring,though Hernandez was the star in this one tbh.

Solid show,with a great main event, but I must say i skiped the "Top of the Class Trophy" match and women's match, don't know it those are any good.
