So Sayeth the Truth:
Quote:
In case you have been living under a rock, let me introduce myself: I am the TV, Super Duper, King Kong, Mega Mega, Managerial Sensation and “Life Intervention Expert” Truth Martini.

I am the Founder and Leader of the House Of Truth. I have a gift from God, and that gift is to not just tell the facts, but to tell the Truth.

Christopher Daniels has influenced the pro wrestling scene long before many of you were even born. He has been a pillar of what an outstanding wrestler is and should be. When you think of the phrase “tv star” you can’t help but think of the “Fallen Angel”. The career of this great star has been unrivaled. With that being said the upset of his match with El Generico has caused him confusion and embarrassment. Daniels performance in this match can only be attributed to the pressures and extreme focus needed when a title is on the line. I don’t just mean the title of the World Television Championship but, also the title of being the biggest star in ROH history. In my opinion, which is the only opinion that matters, the only reason men fail is from broken focus. ROH has broken ground with the new ownership of the Sinclair Broadcasting Group which means ROH will be televised nationally. Daniels was born to lead ROH to TV stardom and he feels he has failed. Daniels has informed me he will not be in Richmond, VA or Charlotte, N.C. this weekend. This new feeling of embarrassment has left him questioning his purpose. Through deep thoughts and meditation he will regain his focus. Ladies and Gentlemen, we just went from Christopher Daniels being the ROH World Television Champion to a man that looks like he has been floating dead in a river for the past three days, El Generico. Daniels is not the only one that should be embarrassed, we all should. So sayeth the Truth!

H.O.T. member Roderick Strong just finished a successful tour in Japan. Now he has a different look in his eyes, a look of triumph, a look of determination and most importantly he has a look of understanding. He now fully understands the Truth, because when I change what you know than I change who you are. Now Roderick Strong realizes he is without a shadow of a doubt, pound for pound, the greatest professional wrestler to grace any and every professional wrestling ring. Roderick Strong’s first match upon his return was requested by the new ROH World Television Champion, the “lucha dork” El Generico. This match scheduled for July 9th in Charlotte, NC will be a non-title steel cage match. In my opinion, which is the only opinion that matters, El Generico has a lot of fear and hate in his heart. Afraid of losing his title, he made this a non title match, his hate for Roderick made him choose the steel cage. My friends and followers, we all know that you are nobody until somebody hates you. With that being said, Roderick Strong is not only “somebody”, he is the former ROH World Champion and the greatest champion ROH has ever had. Strong will single-handedly end the career of El Generico. So sayeth the Truth!

When I think of the future of ROH, I think of “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin. Since his debut 8 months ago he has been the fastest rising star in ROH history. Elgin has stirred up many worries and fears of other wrestlers that may cross his path. At 24 yrs old he has a bench press of 500lbs and can squat 700lbs making him the most powerful man in ROH. In his short time in ROH he already holds a victory over El Generico, won the first ever Double Danger Scramble match and beat Steve Corino at “Best in the World 2011″ which is ROH’s largest internet pay per view to date. He started off as a recruit for the House of Truth and has passed his final test with flying colors. He has succeeded where the other recruits have failed. Michael Elgin believes in the ways of the House of Truth and is willing to die for what we stand for. I, Truth Martini, say what I mean and I ALWAYS mean what I say, Elgin will be ROH World Champion one day. I am always looking for new souls to mold, and I have many recruits under my guidance. This weekend in Charlotte N.C. on July 9th Elgin will be teaming up with a new recruit. This recruit has passed the preliminary assessments of becoming a H.O.T. member and has earned the right for his final test. Will he pass or will he fail? Will I give him a thumbs up or a thumbs down? In my opinion, which is the only one that matters, if a man hasn’t discovered something that he will die for, he isn’t fit to live. So sayeth the Truth!

As I said previously, I have a gift to not just tell the facts, but to tell the Truth. Regarding the ROH World Champion Davey Richards, I believe you fans have never seen a man with such passion, such determination and such honor as him. I can understand why all of you love and cheer for him. Can one man truly fulfill all your expectations to such an intensity? No, the truth is all of those qualities are only skin deep. Do you really have passion if you announce to the world that you are going to quit after you have said time and time again that you didn’t choose wrestling, wrestling chose you? Hmmm…do you really have determination if you stated to the entire world that you were meant and born to do this and have come back to fulfill your destiny. Your destiny being at Final Battle you would win the ROH world championship for the fans, for yourself, and most importantly for your deceased grandfather…and then you fail? Hmmm…do you really have honor if your selfish needs take you as far as to fight your tag partner, your pack member, your brother, Eddie Edwards? Hmmm… In my opinion, which is the only opinion that matters, Truth is not always popular, but it is always right. Davey Richards is the ROH World Champion but he got there with greed, selfishness and manipulation. The plain and simple truth is that your Ring of Honor World Champion is dishonorable. So sayeth the Truth! So sayeth the House!

Each and everyone of you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you mad.

- Truth Martini

^ I tried to watch that show once. The first half was so atrocious I lost interest quickly. Absolutely hated the opener.

ROH Bluegrass Brawl

Beef Wellington vs. Paredyse ½*

OVW Southern Tag Team Title Match
The Elite vs. Sucio and Fang

Sara Del Rey vs. Daizee Haze **

Delirious vs. Mike Mondo

Pick 6 Series
Chris Hero vs. Colt Cabana **½

Austin Aries, Kenny King and Rhett Titus vs. Roderick Strong and The House of Truth ***

Tyler Black vs. Claudio Castagnoli ***¼-***½

Jay and Mark Briscoe vs. The American Wolves ***¾

  • Can't say I cared at all for the first 4 matches and Hero/Cabana was the usual same old match they usually have
  • The six man tag was actually pretty fun despite there not being a consistant face during the match
  • Black/Claudio was disappointing for me, I was expecting a lot more from it. However it wasn't a bad match by any means and the last few minutes were pretty enjoyable
  • Wolves/Briscoes was pretty good, second best match between the two teams
  • Overall a very meh show up until the last few matches. One of the weaker shows that I've seen from 2010 however that was expected considering it was part of a triple shot

Moxley/Danielson was probably more enjoyable but the 6 man was slightly better.

What's the production and atmosphere like on HWA's DVDs btw? I might pick up Heartland Cup from this year at some point but I wont bother if the production is shit.

I only watched the last 4 matches but I can definitely imagine the undercard sucking. Second half of the show is really good though and the last 2 matches are both great.

ROH: Deny or Defy

I picked this up at Best in the World as I had heard nothing but good things about the show. Plus it seemed like a better decision at the time to buy a show that I hadn't seen instead of a show that I was at.


Mark Briscoe vs. Kyle O'Reilly

This was really good. At the time O'Reilly was an up and coming guy at best and wasn't someone that would be expected to hang with someone like Mark Briscoe. Well he did and they went on to have a really hard hitting and enjoyable match. This really gave me the feeling that O'Reilly is someone that could work the ROH main event style match really well.
***


The All Night Express vs. Steve Corino and Grizzly Redwood

They really should have cut some time off this one. I liked Corino trying to be a babyface and resisting the urge to cheat but other than that aspect of the match this fell really flat. It wasn't too bad but it wasn't all that good either.
**


Tommaso Ciampa w/The Embassy vs. Adam Cole

Prince Nana is so much better with small crowds as you can hear everything he says, and it's usually hilarious. I really liked this match a lot, Cole played such a good face against the monster that is Ciampa and the entire Embassy. The best way to put it is that the finish made me angry because I had been sucked into the match by what they had done in the ring. It wasn't a bad ending to the match at all as ROH really wouldn't want either guy to lose cleanly. Instead they both looked strong. What I mean by saying I was angry was that I was close to doing the Michael Cole, "NO! NOT LIKE THIS!" scream when Ciampa hit a low blow to when Nana distracted the ref to set up his finisher. Good stuff.
***1/4



Chris Hero w/Sara Del Rey and Shane Hagadorn vs. TJ Perkins

This was great. Hero came across as the ultimate bully at times. He wasn't just cocky like he normally was, he was down right mean to Perkins throughout the match. It was as hard hitting as you would expect (I knew it was as I remember how messed up TJP's chest was at Manhattan Mayhem) but what made it great was that they did more than just hit each other. Perkins played an underdog really well and it was easy to get behind his comebacks after watching him get his ass kicked by Chris Hero for so long.
****


The Bravado Brothers vs. Matt Tavern and Guy Alexander


This wasn't very good. But the Bravados cheating to beat a no name team and celebrating like they just won the tag titles was pretty hilarious. I can't remember a thing about the match though, it just sort of happened and the crowd wasn't into it at all.
*1/4


Eddie Edwards vs. Michael Elgin w/Truth Martini

To sum this whole match up, Elgin is a big tough monster but Eddie Edwards just doesn't care. Eddie took everything from Elgin but never backed down against him. Probably the best performance I've seen from Elgin as he really showed how well he can play his role. I would love to see him wrestle against some of the smaller guys on the roster.
***3/4



ROH Television Championship Match:
Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Mike Bennett w/Brutal Bob Evans

I know people were saying that this was the best match that Bennett has ever had well. That's not saying much as I thought this was pretty terrible. To the point where I didn't even want to watch it after the opening minute. I should have just skipped it.
*1/2


Claudio Castagnoli w/Shane Hagadorn and Sara Del Rey vs. Davey Richards

Lots of DAVEYTENSITY to be experienced. It didn't bother me here as it was needed to explain how someone the size of Davey could go blow for blow with a monster like Claudio. The last few minutes were insane.
****


Roderick Strong vs. Homicide vs. Jay Briscoe vs. El Generico

I thought this was awesome. There were a ton of small stories that they built into this match and when you put them together you had a 30 minute or so match that felt like 15. I could go on and on in talking about the different stories that this match had. The other reviews of this match have said that it didn't get good until Homicide was eliminated. I couldn't disagree any more. I thought Homicide was excellent in the match. It was odd seeing him work with Strong but it created this weird dynamic and had you questioning what exactly he was doing. Jay Briscoe was a lot of fun to watch as well. Generico put on another classic babyface performance. He is impossible not to root for. This was probably one of Strong's best performances as a heel too. A great effort from everyone involved.
****


Overall this was a great show. I have 3 matches at 4*s and one just below it. Throw in two very solid singles matches from Cole and O'Reilly and this is one of the better ROH shows that I've seen outside New York in a while.

Atmosphere was ok though i wouldn't call them a smart fan crowd. Production wise though was just fucking awful. I don't know if they have improved since but the production was legit the worst I've seen in a while. During the change of camera angles the video actually jumps backwards and they even miss spots when they change the angles. They also have problems with the audio being in Sync especially when they change camera angles.

Revolution Canada was a great show, much stronger than the USA show. It's definitely a show that I can see some people rating every match ***+

Claudio vs O'Reilly was a great opener. Started off slow but eventually it turned into a great opener with some awesome near falls for O'Reilly.

Corino vs Bennett was AWESOME. So much far and away the best Bennett match so far and largely due to him not having a lengthy control segment which kills everyone. Corino was godly awesome. When I saw the first TV tapings of this year with Corino turning face and working with the new guys like Ridge and Redwood I really lost interest in Corino but I couldn't have been more wrong. He's the best promo guy they have and jesus the guy can work a match without having to do loads of flashy stuff. Corino/Otani is now my dream team. Corino's shtick working the crowd is incredible and the ringbell spot was great. I so hope that Corino gets to hit that suicide dive at some point. In the feud ender vs Steen would be perfection. Bennett actually looked pretty good but the match was awesome because of Corino. Bennett didn't bring the match down though and the dropkick to block Corino's dive was sweet.

Need to rewatch the 6 man because I wasn't paying full attention to it but it looked a heap of fun. Loads of high spots and the crowd were going crazy for it all.

Richards/King was alright but far far from being a great match. These two have odd chemistry, sometimes they have good chemistry and then sometimes it's really quite bad. This was a bad case sadly. The botch did look bad. King really didn't look ready to be a top singles guy either. Maybe it was just the poor chemistry though. Davey throwing a hissy fit and storming out after the pin was pretty shitty of him.

Bravado's promo was the greatest thing ever. Jesus this promo was incredible. Lancealot Bravado may be the best name for a heel ever. Dudes are genuinly great mic workers too and not just in reading a script well, they work the crowd really fucking well too. If these guys can work their butts off to improve in the ring then they'll be mega superstars. They got mega heat too. "He hasn't even started talking yet, don't talk to Adam Cole like that". So many great lines in there. Ended on a downer though when Cole & O'Reilly started brawling with them and it turned into MOVEZ. Harlem got in a "If I can be serious for a minute" too.

Cabana/Delirious was a fine tribute match.

Daniels/Generico was a good match. Nothing memorable though I didn't think.

Briscoes/WGTT was the worst match on the card I thought. It was just totally irrelevant until the low blow spot and then it picked up a little. As in it picked up from a bad match to an ok one. Benjamin and Haas are just so ordinary it's abysmal at this point. Finish yet again was weak. Not sure how anyone is supposed to be excited to see a Briscoes/WGTT match in the future after they had an iPPV main event which was only decent and then this match was below par and felt so unimportant.

Talked about the main event in the MOTYC thread. No point in repeating myself. It was great.

That was the most disinterested I've seen Davey in a long time. I don't know what was going on, but Davey at some points looked like he'd rather be anywhere then in that ring. Still no reason to storm off like a child after the match. Thought the match at Against The Grain was better then this, and that was just average.
