Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
Really I'm done with ROH. I'm done with independent wrestling on the whole. Cole vs Strong was a terrible mach. It was the literal definition of a move for move match with big spots. That match just proved that you don't have to be a highflyer to be termed a spot monkey because that's essentially what that match was, a spot fest. Completely devoid of any sort of psychology.
So 2 minutes into the match Strong sends Cole's neck onto the barricade and for what? After sending him back in the ring he just punches him. Wouldn't you go for the neck? Why was such a spot done if you never even bothered to come back to the neck throughout the entire match? Exactly, it was done to garner a pop. A spot which served no purpose and added to meaning to the match.
To further prove my point just a couple seconds after that spot Strong delivers a STO BACKbreaker to Cole. Ummmmmm....what? Why would you do a backbreaker if you freaking just damn near broke a guy's neck? Fuck, these guys aren't in the WWE not because they can't cut a promo. They can't fucking wrestle.
From there the match is just nothing but Cole and String trading punches or chops or just trading moves. I pick you up, slam you down. You pick me up, slam me down. Oh and it never cease to amaze how stupid it looks to see gys lock in one submission and randomly just lock in another. You have a boston crab applied. Squeeze the motherfucker with it. No instead, you release your hold momentarily to go for a I don't know what the fuck you call it. Where you pretzel the legs like your doing a sharpshooter but it's with your hands. Oh I'm a stupid idiot who doesn't know anything bout wrestling because I don't know what that move is called. Boo hoo.
God, I'm done. I'm done with this shit. All I do is complain. These matches are not entertianing, they are not fun to watch, they lack any sort of structure and it's just plain dumb to look at. It's unbelievable. These guys just continue to prove that it's not about the moves you know, it's how you use them. And quite frankly, these guys use them stupidly.
