I thought for a while this year's ROH product was getting better but it's always one step forward two steps back. Their storylines and match endings are still way overbooked, and Pearce still cannot resist ruining matches with crap finishes. It's even worse on the big shows and the TV tapings. Did anyone read the reports of the TV tapings this weekend? Every other match was either a DQ finish or a foreign object finish. It's like they don't even care about letting the wrestlers have good matches anymore, which used to be the very reason ROH was different.
And its not just throwing matches under the bus for good storylines....they are doing it for storylines that make no sense. Necro Butcher.......after feuding with the Embassy for over a year.......just JOINED them. Erik Stevens, the man who beat Danielson and Aries in one weekend..........just jobbed to The Littlest Lumberjack. I want to believe ROH is getting better, because their house shows sound really good again, in that that are actually trying to have the best matches possible instead of booking their roster into a corner because 'its worth it if it advances storlyines.' Once again, storylines are NEVER worth bringing down the Quality of the matches. When ROH doesn't even care about their TV tapings, major shows, or PPVs, it gets pretty hard to support them.
