Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I generally don't like guys who use rape threats to get themselves over as babyfaces.

In the ring I guess Mondo's fine though.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

So theres talk about people hating on Bennett, Mondo & Caimpa is it?

Well as far as Ciampa's concerned I think all of my excitement for him ended when he wasn't booked better, and because of that, while I don't dislike him, he doesn't interest me anymore... I nothing him right now.

Mike Bennett I never had a problem with since he actually entertains me, even before he was with Maria. But I suppose more pure wrestling fans hate the fact that he isn't as bland as some ROH talent is on their current roster, in terms of promo work I mean.

And Mondo? Well he did start off with a weird gimmick being like Popeye the sailor man in the start of his matches, but other than that I actually liked him more since he started fueding with Matt Taven, one of my fav ROH TV matches since Sinclair took over was actually between them two. But decides is questionable start, I like him much more now due to him doing much more in the ring and being an overall good performer.

[B]*NOT TAKING DOWN UNTIL (as of 29th August, 2014)*
[]Rob Terry breaks away from The Menagerie.
[]Ring of Honor creates an official Women of Honor Division.
[]The name 'Nixion Newell' gets more attention in the wrestling world.
[]Heidi Lovelace becomes a major title holder in a well known womens promotion.
[]More welsh wrestlers get heard of in the wrestling scene.

Steen's popped the crowd by threatening to rape Kevin Kelly, on more than one occasion. There are definitely other examples. Sure he said something similar to a fan during the first Eddie Kingston face off.

I don't disagree that ROH is a massive sausage fest though. Never heard the Mondo promo, didn't watch BITW.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Threatening to rape Kevin Kelly and threatening to rape Maria are totally different.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

ROH is ECW this week but the show was fun. I really enjoy Eddie/Rhino and Homicide/Steen. It was a good way to build towards Steen vs. Rhino. Steen has beat a lot of top guys so far this summer.

Well, first of all, Steen's apparently technically not a babyface, nor is he supposedly trying to be one. Not that that really matters.

Second of all, Seabs is right that there's a pretty clear difference between Kevin Kelly and Maria, in that one is so absurd as to not be taken seriously (not that that totally excuses it) and the other is the most distasteful in a long line of aggressively distasteful sexual objectification.

Also, this isn't limited to Maria: remember when Papa Briscoe forced himself on Sara Del Rey at Final Battle? Yeah, that wasn't cool either. Think I pointed it out at the time maybe?
