Re: Official Indy DVD Thread
Given my feelings on Davey Richards even I am hard pressed to think of someone better suited to hold the ROH Title right now. I'd probably dig a Generico run more and maybe Hero depending on how they booked him but thats about it.
Exactly, That's why Davey needs the belt ASAP. Every reign since Nigel's has been lackluster. We need the days of long title reigns back to bring back that sense of prestige to the belt. Davey is the person to do that.
I do agree with all of this. I thought putting the belt on Roddy was a bad idea when they did it. It should've gone on Davey at DBD - if his retirement plans and other commitments allowed for that. If not, at FB.
The thing is (contrary to the bit in bold), I feel as though once you're in for a penny, you're in for a pound. Cutting short Roddy's title run, and throwing him under the bus, just defeats the object of giving him the belt in the first place.
They just need to let it play out naturally now and make sure that they create the best possible moment, for Davey, and the smoothest transition possible, for everyone concerned. It's already too late to worry about everything else IMO. Two wrongs don't make a right.
Am I the only one who enjoyed Black's reign? Nearly all of his defenses were excellent matches which included multiple MOTYCs (Big Bang, DBDVIII, Salvation, BFSE2) and I personally dug his feud with Roddy. His heel turn toward the end of his run was well done as well
Hero is probably my favorite wrestler, but IMO Davey needs the belt before Hero does. They can't build Davey up like this and then not give him the belt. Hero should then take the belt off him in 2012 after a proper build. The Kings reign should go on for a while longer.
I wonder how the fans are gonna treat Davey after he becomes a champ. He is semi-god for them right now, but we all know the history with Nigel, Black and Lynn. It is ridiculous, but Samoa Joe was the ONLY true face champion, this motherfucker had been holding a belt for almost two years and yet he was massively cheered most of the time.
Depends. If they wait too long like they did with Black they might turn on him but with his style he might remain a favorite. And I wouldn't put Lynn in that group because was anyone ever really happy that Lynn became champ?
And the next PWG show in April after DDT4 will be called WINNING. Bree Olson has to be gotten there for something.
