Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
Saw ROH last night...meh. They showed highlights of the Richards/Steen match. I admit even though I downloaded BITW, I decided not to watch this match because I knew exactly what it was going to be. And according to the highlights I was damn right. Davey, as usual, no sold everything. Steen also no sold. Then again, I've come to the conclusion that that's just what ROH is all about. No selling. Fuck logic. You could send a guy head first through a table off the top rope and then moments later that same guy could get up like nothing ever happened and send your ass head first on a ladder. It doesn't matter if it's unrealsitc. Who neeeds to sell? Who needs to tell a story? As long as we get the fans slapping on the barricade and get the "This is awesome chants" going, that's all that matters.
Oh and the ending? It makes me laugh at how Cornette shits all over everything WWE and TNA does yet that's the shit the company he can't stop bragging about does. Let's fucking kill all the referees then about at the end just for the sake of it we do this big spot where Richards gets stabbed. Richards got stabbed!!! This is awesome!!! Pope gets stabbed in the eye with a pen from AJ Styles? This is bullshit!!
The after the match let's have ROH try to shive Richards down our throats even more. Come on. Even die hard ROH fans can't stand the guy. But anyway, ROH actually wants us to believe that Richards is the best in the world even poking fun of Jericho and Punk who are miles ahead of him in the ring- heck fucking John Cena is a better werestler than Richards. AT least wehn cena knows he has to deliver he sells and tells a story. Something that Richards is incapable of. So yeah, Kevin Steen has a lot of respect for him yet for some reaosn he stabs him. Weird.
One of the reasons why I started watching ROH a few years ago (well I shouldn't say watch, I don't follow that shit religiously at all then again Tyler Black got signed to FCW. What other reason was there to watch?) was because like so many I was looking for an alternative to WWE. This isn't an alternative for me at all. It's worse than the WWE. I can't stress how much I absolutely loathe this style of wrestling. There's no story to it whatsoever. How the heck could people find this sort of stuff appealing? It's nothing but mindless head dropping and various suplexes and submissions that don't even put pressure on a body part that got previously worked on.
I think I wouldn't mind ROH as much if it weren't for its brain washed fans (who for some ungodly reason tries to force this shitty style of wrestling on everyone because it's all about the movezz and the spotzz and the holddzz). When will people understand that it's not about the moves or how many of them you do. It's how you work into the match. It's amazing really. Anyway, next week Adam Cole will be in action. I wonder if I'll even bother with ROH again once WWE signs Cole? Then again they just might happen to find someone that I may take a liking to. I never thought I'd watch ROH again once Black left.
