Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I forget about this:
Quote:
- Eddie Kingston put up one hell of a fight last Saturday in his ROH World Title match but the odds were not in his favor. Kingston not only battled Kevin Steen but had to deal with Jimmy Jacobs and Steve Corino as well. Fortunately, Rhett Titus ran out to get rid of Corino but it was not enough. We want to thank the CHIKARA Grand Champion for his unbelievable effort and ROH officials have invited him back for future events. Kingston is currently full time with CHIKARA and ROH officials are currently lining up dates in late 2012 for Kingston.
Awesome

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

ACH in ROH will be great if they let up go all-out and pair him with a guy like Cole or Elgin.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Don't get the hate for guys like Mondo, Bennett & Ciampa.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I just watched the 6 man tag main event and the end of the match was ridiculous. Jay Lethal takes a Contra Code from Jacobs (main finisher) Basement Clothesline from Corino (signature move) and a Senton Bomb from Steen (signature move) literally one after another and kicks out at two. Then within seconds he's back on his feet, kicks Jacobs and hits The Lethal Injection which is a handspring ace crusher.

So essentially he eats 3 major moves and kicks out despite having no right to; and then hits a ridiculously athletic move seconds later. What the actual hell.

He's Jay Lethal. Unless it's a title match, he doesn't lose.

Don't think anyone hates Ciampa, more the booking for him.

Bennett's hate came from the immediate push he got when he wasn't ready & that his matches weren't very good. His character has gotten better with Maria and his wrestling has improved so it's lessening for him.

Mondo's hate comes from the push that is even more transparent then Bennett's, his meh at best matches, some consider him a move thief and his awful promos make him stand out in a horrible light.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I like all three guys.

I've been saying for a year Ciampa is a star. He has all the tools for WWE to snatch him up.

Mondo is good at getting the live audience into the shows. I would keep him in the mid card but use him a lot.

Bennett doesn't excite me and is average in the ring but a great talker and awesome at playing his character(like Bobby Roode when you think about it). If I was a promoter, I would probably make him one of my top 3 stars just because I can sell him. Ring of Honor is the wrong promotion for him to move up. WWE,TNA, NWA Hollywood, TCW is where Bennett would probably shine more. But then again the ROH product and audience is changing, so he might be perfect for the "new" ROH.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Mondo is getting better and better. He can cut some good promos and like you said - getting over almost everywhere. So why only midcard?

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

They never really did follow through on the Bennett and Ciampa pushes did they? Just look at where they are now. Haven't achieved anything and don't really count for much in the bigger ROH picture.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

You right, the pushes have stall. They still all over tv, but not in bigger roles. I do blame that on ROH booking.

I don't trust Mondo as an upper card guy yet. He's over with the live audience but I doubt people will pay money too see him right now. Mondo needs a big breakout match like Adam Cole/Oreilly or Elgin against Richards which jump start his push. For right now, he is a good midcarder and playing his role perfectly.

Mondo's excellent. Didn't even realise there was any "hate".
