Nigel sauntering in, like he owns the place, was a total mark out moment.

Just watched it. Some nice in ring action right there. Still this show has long way to go in aspects such as getting live shows, improving the presentation and building interesting storylines. Anyways it was still more enjoyable than that weird TNA.

At leas the crowd was alive and buzzing. Bieber chants where pretty funny IMO. The ring is very weird in this one though.

I just watched it again a few hours ago on the internet. It was better after seeing the first half. The production seemed better on the internet. Maybe the problem last night was just the way that my local station formatted it.

The first match was ridiculous IMO. I didn't like the opening bout at all.

The double moves were overdone to the point where it was just unbelievable. There was this one when I can't remember if it was Cole or O Reilley but he did this thing where he made one Bravado brother leg whip the other. It just looked....fake.

Then this one spot in particular made me just wanna facepalm. O Rilley grabs one of the Bravado bros. does some rolling suplex thing, then he hands him to Cole who spike DDT him then germans him right after. And in the end, the guy just no sell all that offense so Cole could fly through the ropes. The last 2 minutes or so was just a bunch of no selling.

And of course like all spotfest tag matches, they guys are so tough that they can take all the punishment being dished out to them such a DDT immediately followed by a german, but they can't even take a leg sweep/clothesline combo.

I see a lot of potential in Adam Cole, I really do but he needs to stop trying so hard to appeal to the 1,000 or so indy marks. The tag match was horrid. But hey the ROH fans in attendance loved it and I guess that's all that really matters.

Nonetheless it was a good show and I do wish ROH the best. It's about time we get some damn good competition. TNA is utter shit and as much as I don't like the style of wrestling in ROH, I rather sit through it and complain about the lack of storytelling and selling by some guys than have to sit through the garbage TNA puts out on a weekly basis.

Good luck with that.
This is why ROH should stop pandering to the IWC, their biggest downfall. They're not even willing to pay $8 a month, how the heck do you expect them to pay $45 for PPVs?

Why try to please 1,000 people when you can please 100,000? ROH will never grow and it's sad for me to say it but it's the damn truth.

They have no guys that can talk and you have to be able to talk the fans into the building. It's easy as pie to talk a 1000 purists into the building, but what about the other 100,000 fans that's actually gonna make you money and make your company grow.

But I guess ROH doesn't care bout talkers cause they have wrestlers, right? It's a stupid bullshit mentality. Davey Richards and Brisco Brothers were terrible during their promos. You have to be able to talk. It's a fact.

ROH iPPVS are $15 and have a vastly superior profit margin to WWE or TNA's. They won't be changing to the $45, every three weeks, PPV model any time soon.

TNA make losses everytime they run a PPV, hence why they now put zero money, time or effort into promoting them. If they could get out of their PPV deal tomorrow and switch to a more economical model, like ROH's, they would.

Plus, this Bischoff brainfart, that wrestling fans with internet connections don't spend money, is laughable.

Psst...it's not $8 a month btw.

Not every business is aiming to attract an infinite number of customers. That's a very simplistic way of looking at things. Small businesses are better off spending their time finding ways to squeeze more money out of their loyal, reliable fanbase. Many businesses kill themselves by naively trying to cater to a broad, unpredictable group of passing customers. This is especially the case in pro wrestling.

Slow and steady growth has always been ROH's way. If they did things your way, they'd be dead.

If you think that Briscoes and Davey promos are bad then...what can I say?

Could've been worse, we could've got a Eddie Edwards promo.

the matches to me were good but the production levels were poor. Maybe its expecting too much from ROH but I expected a little better

Its the first episode, give them some time I guess to fix up some audio issues and improve the production a bit

Anyway, they need to get the program in the NYC market, luckily there is youtube
