Default Re: Checking out something new

It's a little bit over a year but I'd recommend seeing Austin Aries vs Nigel McGuiness at last year's Rising Above PPV. It was 12/29/07.

Also death before dishonor VI from the hammerstein ballroom. But the thing with ROH is you could get any dvd and you'll find something worth watching on it.

If it is financially feaseable I would also highly recommend checking out an event live. Every show is 10 times better seeing it live.

I'm currently dl'ing Driven which I got recommended, but there are so many PPV's I don't even know what's good and what's not.

So if anyone could give me some recommendations I'd really appreciate it.
Yeah, like Dirk Matooth said, don't concern yourself with keeping up to date because you should be spending your money on the best stuff and not the recent stuff. I was in your spot Nov. of 07 when I saw the commercial for Man Up! and that PPV really hooked me on the product because there are no bad matches, so that would be a good start for you as well.

You should wait to buy a lot of DVDs because ROH's most recent PPV, Rising Above 08 is debuting on Jan 16, so you should watch that and think about whether you want more of ROH before you buy any other shows.

Must Have DVDs.

Good Times, Great Memories:
A awesome show with no bad matches and a 5 star tag team match with The Briscoes vs. The Motor City Machineguns. This show also had TNA wrestlers like Homicide & Christopher Daniels making their final appearences.

Manhattan Mayhem:
A great show with no bad matches and wrestlers like James Gibson (Jamie Noble), Jay Lethal, Samoa Joe, Low Ki, Homicide, Alex Shelley, CM Punk put on fantastic performances. Fantastic Title matches highlight this great show and it ends with an impromptu match that actually ends up being great and ends the show with a bang.Alex Shelley & CM Punk cut fantastic promos that really recap their feuds and make you want to watch the other shows to see where it goes from there.

Unified:
The commentary is drowned out by the crowd, but IMO, it makes the show a lot more fun because you really hear how pumped the crowd is. The Main Event is phenomenal and the Tag Title match is so awesome, you'll wish you had got into ROH a lot sooner because ta matches like this don't happen in TNA or WWE.

Final Battle 2006:
Briscoes vs. Kings of Wrestling, Homicide vs. Bryan Danielson, CIMA, SHINGO, & Matt Sydal vs. Austin Aries, Roderick Strong & Delirious are all great matches.

Glory by Honor V: Night 2:
Bryan Danielson vs. KENTA is a 5 star match IMO. Nigel McGuinness vs. Naomichi Marufuji is awesome. The World Tag Title Match and Samoa Joe/Homicide vs. The Briscoes are very good and the crowd is hot as ROH debuts in the Manhattan Center.

Better Than Our Best:
Another awesome show here with no bad matches, a one time only Lance Storm match whare he comes out of retirement to put on a good pure technical match, a violent end to the Cabana/Homicide feud, Jimmy Wang Yang vs. Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles vs. Samoa Joe is a good match, the Tag Title Match is an underrated, but awesome tag match,and the Embassy/Do Fixer tag match is very quick and fast paced match that is under-appreciated.

Death before Dishonor VI:
Awesome show that happened last August, so its pretty recent. The 4 Way Elimination is my MOTY, Go Shiozaki vs. Naomichi Marufuji is a great showcase of what Japanese wrestlers bring to the table and may hook you on Japanese promotions like NOAH, Steen & Generico vs. Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin is a very good tag match that shows you how good the guns are against great teams, and the NWA Title match is a great WWEish old-school type match that has a great crowd.

Supercard of Honor III:
Regarded as THE BEST ROH SHOW EVER! After the first 2 matches, the rest of the matches are all great to Awesome and show the different styles of matches there really are. Strong & Stevens show how hateful brawls can be, Briscoes vs. Age of the Fall provide the in-crowd brawls that WWE fans love about ECW, Steen & Generico vs. New Hazard show how good tag team wrestling is, the ROH World Title match displays the great singles matches that consistently occur in ROH shows, & the Dragon Gate 6 man blows your mind at how fast these guys move that you'll have to rewind in order to catch everything that happened.

PPVS:
Take No Prisoners:
A great PPV that has a great double main event that showcases how you book a wrestler from a mid-card wrestler to a main event wreslter and this shows you the two aces of ROH, Bryan Danielson & Austin Aries put on a great technical match. There is also a fun Street fight and high flying Tag Title match that is short and sweet. There is also a NOAH Tag Team match as a bonus on the DVD that features a very crazy finish.

Driven 08 is a very good ,recent show that features 2 great main event matches.

Driven 07:
An incredible show with a 5 star match in the main event with another 5 star match as a bonus match between KENTA & Bryan Danielson. The two tag matches on this show are fun as well and really good.

Rising Above 07:
A great show with a terrific main event that many still consider to be the MOTY of 08 even though it took place in Deember of 07. Danielson/Morishima provide a great brawl, the 2 out of 3 Falls is good and shows how the Briscoes are in thier signature match & it has a really fast-paced Scramble match that reminds you of how good the X-Division should be.

MAN UP!:
Like I said, this is what hooked me because it has no bad matches and it marks the debut of the Age of the Fall in a violent way. The ONLY Ladder Match in ROH history has never been done again because 1. It will never top the one on this PPV & 2. This one was so violent and dangerous that some fans started worrying more about the wrestlers than they did the qualirty of this match, which was an awesome match.

Other Must Haves:
Manhattan Mayhem II
Fifth Year Festival : Liverpool
Fifth Year Festival: Finale
6th Anniversary Show
Northern Navigation

Shows with THE 3 5 Star Matches mentioned above by Dirk Mantooth:
Joe vs. Punk II- The 5 Star Samoa Joe vs. CM Punk match

Supercard of Honor 1- The Dragon Gate 6 man Grudge Match so awesome, a new chant was invented.

Joe Vs. Kobashi- The 5 star Samoa Joe vs. Kenta Kobashi match so awesome, the commentators didn't want to risk ruining the emotion and intensity that was being felt in the building by talking over it while the crowd was so loud for it. It was so crazy you would not belive that much noise came from such a small crowd.

Best in the World, Greatest Rivalries, Stars of Honor, & Bloodstained Honor are in stores so if you want a peak at what ROH was like back in 04-06, check those out.

ROH Glory By Honor V: Night 2

Opener:
Davey Richards vs. Jack Evans *** 1/4
A great opener that got the crowd hot for the show.

Singles Match:
Adam Pearce vs. Delirious ** 3/4
Nothing really special here except to introdce Pearce's Man Slave/Servant.

Triple Threat Match:
Colt Cabana vs .Christopher Daniels vs. Jimmy Jacobs ***
A fun story-driven match to further the storyline with Lacey/Cabana/Jacobs.

Grudge Match:
Samoa Joe & Homicide vs. The Briscoe Brothers *** 3/4
I hate the pre-match stipulation because it made the match too predictable, but the action was great and fun.

ROH World Tag Team Title Match:
Austin Aries & Roderick Strong (c) vs. The Kings of Wrestling *** 1/2
The Kings don't interest me, so the workover period was kinda boring, but the final stretch was very good and brough tthe match up.

GHC World Title Match:
Naomichi Marufuji (c) vs. Nigel McGuinness **** 1/2
A MOTYC for 06. An awesome match that started the whole McGuinness face run as a future face of ROH. The finshers to the floor, nearfalls, & stiff hits were all great and added to the match.

ROH World Title Match:
Bryan Danielson (c) vs. KENTA *****
The MOTY for 2006. This was an ncredible 30+ minutes of stiif kicks and really pulls you in due to the multiple attacks to Danielson's injured arm. The combos and exchanges between the two were fantastic and Dragon having to switch up his moves because of his shoulder were good and the fans really thought a title change was sure to happen, so it made for an incredibly dramatic match. The NOAH wrestlers being ringside added to the importance of the match and made it feel special.

Get this show. TWO fantastic matches highlight this show and the crowd was hot for everything. We saw a glimpse of the monster Morishima and Bruno Sammartino made an appearnence on ROH's debut in the Manhattan Center, so this event feels really special.

Shame on you Eric Downloaded it the other day actually off a torrent. Already seen KENTA & Ishimori vs Danielson & Edwards which is pretty awesome.

If anyone's thinking about downloading NOAH's The Tournament from Christmas Eve, dont bother. I couldn't finish watching the whole show.

Gin, best ROH shows from 08 are definatly Supercrad of Honour III, 6 Anniversary Show, Northern Navigation & Dead Before Dishonor VI.
