Re: Ciampa's "gimmick." I think ROH is just interested in getting almost every main or even minor star a nickname they can use on the TV shows. It's not a practice I care for all too much, but it also gives every one of their wrestlers a hook that may help in how the casual viewers see them or remember them. "The Sicilian Psychopath" isn't the best moniker, I'll agree there, but I also don't think it's so much a character as it is a simple nickname. The Sicilian part of it, I've always thought, tied into The Embassy's emphasis on foreign or exotic talent more than anything. Maybe I'm wrong.

You said he wasn't actually Sicilian. He is actually Sicilian (or at least his character is). He doesn't, like, run around waving Italian flags or call people 'paisan', he's just a guy from Sicily, like Chris Benoit was the Canadian Crippler because he was from Canada.

I can't believe I actually have to explain this to you.

-Mike Bennett vs. Adam Page - *3/4
-The Briscoes vs. Some new and looking good tag team - **1/2
-Roderick Strong vs. Tommaso Ciampa - **1/2, nice ending. The build for the TV title match is really good.

The TV Champion build is the best of all matches at BITW, anything can happen i would be happy with any decision they made.

This weeks show review:

Eddie Edwards vs Brutal Bob: **1/2 (they actually sold me the match here: http://www.wrestlingforum.com/connect/...12/jun/21/7397 )

Jay Lethal vs Chris Silvio: ** Decent match, Chris Silvio is a nice jobber i don´t mind to see him have a contract with the company. The best part of the match was the arguee between The HOT & The Embassy at ringside.

Kevin Steen & Jimmy Jacobs vs Davey Richards & Kyle O´Reilly: ***3/4 Great TV match here. A lot of crazy spots (Remember that both Steen & Richards end up this match with injures)and a nice finish to build their BITW match

What I'm saying is if Sicilian is in his nickname, shouldn't he base his gimmick around that.

That is why it's called organized crime.

It's just a nickname with alliteration to try and make it sound cool and less generic then "The Sociopath". If we're going to completely have to make nicknames 100% of their gimmicks then I guess Kenny King better cut off someone's head because he's "Killer", "The Outlaw" Charlie Haas is going to have to start robbing banks and Jimmy Jacobs is going to have to both become undead and have a sex change to be "The Zombie Princess".

That's different, those are all just exaggerations, Here it's something real but not added to his gimmick, I don't know, just expected him to act more Sicilian

Was really impressed with Steen/Jacobs vs Team Ambition

Just a wild fast paced brawl with an excellent use of the illegal man always cutting off the offence. The no contest ending I felt was well done enough to be justified and it's got me pumped for BITW which I'll be watching in a few hours.
