Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
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.
