As long as Masters didn't just run over the roster in mini-squahes I think most fans would give him a chance. More of them have probably seen some of his matches on Superstars and would keep and open mind like with WGTT and Rhino. As long as he put on good matches the fans would like him. People on the ROH board think Mike Bennett is great so their opinions should be taken with a pound of salt.

Davey's intensity > Eddie's blandness

Davey/Hero at Only the Strong Survive made me officially hate his babyface run.

The match including Richards was hilarious, a couple of botches that made me laught a lot. This guy is having a terrible year in ROH, while he's improving in New Japan.

I liked the main event, but most people said it was boring and awful, I saw it perfectly booked.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

It was a tedious main event without the extra oomph of previous fourways such as Redemption and Man Up. ROH has much of the same problem in WWE in terms of decreased star power compared to several years ago.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

ROH Revolution : USA

Homicide vs. Tommaso Ciampa

Michael Elgin vs. Andy Ridge

Mike Bennett vs. Grizzly Redwood *

First Blood Match

The All Night Express vs. Jay and Briscoe **½

Non-Title Match

Christopher Daniels vs. Colt Cabana **¼

Non-Title Match

Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas vs. Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly **¾

No Disqualification Match

Roderick Strong vs. El Generico ***¼-***½

The Kings of Wrestling vs. The American Wolves ****¼

* Ciampa/Homicide was a lot weaker then their Atlanta match. The aftermath was pretty enjoyable though, got to love R.D Evans.

* ANX/Briscoes felt pretty dull for the first half of the math, couldn't keep much of my interest but the second half was more intense like the previous two matches which helped it.

* Haas and Benjamin/ColeReilly was another weird one. The beginning of it was pretty great, and so were the last few minutes but the middle of the match was so dull. I've felt this with practically every Haas and Benjamin match now outside of the first match with KOW.

* Strong/Generico was slightly better then the Atlanta match for me. Fun spots and crowd was certainly into it, however one problem I've had with this feud is that the match at SoCal Showdown II which started the feud felt more intense then both this and the Atlanta match. You couldn't really feel much hate between the two.

* Main event was awesome especially in the way they built off of the Kings still being frustrated with losing the belts, and so they went in with some of their best arsenal early on to try and finish the match. Much faster paced then the first match and about on par with it if it wasn't for a couple of botches.

* Not as good as the last few shows unfortunately with the only real things sticking out, being the incredibly fun main event and the enjoyable NoDQ match.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Just as a heads up, the ROH store is now stocking PWG All Star Weekend 8 Nights 1 and 2. Pretty damn quick eh?! I was gonna hold out till they've got some sort of sale on, but their recent PWG DVD stock has been rather limited so I'm not too sure.

So even ROH have got the damn things before me. Highspots have really pissed me off with this order.

Re: Official Indy DVD Thread

Davey re-signs...

Ring of Honor officials are excited to announce that they have come to terms with Davey Richards and that the current ROH World Champion has agreed to extend his existing contract.

Richards, who captured the ROH World Title from Eddie Edwards at “Best in the World 2011”, has been a part of Ring of Honor since 2006 and, in addition to reigning as the current World Champion, is also a 2-Time ROH World Tag Champion alongside first, Rocky Romero, and then Edwards.

Ring of Honor is fortunate to have a competitor as gifted as Davey Richards as part of the fold.” Said Jim Cornette, “As World Champion, Richards is a fine representative of what ROH is all about, especially as we head into the Sinclair Broadcasting era this weekend in Chicago Ridge!”

Richards is set to defend the ROH World Title against former champion Roderick Strong this Saturday night, August 13th, when we return to Chicago Ridge for our very first SBG TV Tapings! Tickets for this event can be purchased right here in the ROH Store ( and check out the video below for Davey’s thoughts as we begin this new phase for Ring of Honor:

He's also a fine representation of why I don't buy ROH DVD's anymore.
