I think that was a great reversal actually. I understand some people dislike that he doesn´t sold the DDT but the crowd reacted well to that.

Reilly was holding on to richards ready to do another move, had no time to sell the affects of ddt and its a great counter as stated.

Richards vs. KO was all kinds of awesome for my dollar and money well spent.

I for Matt Hardy (A Matt Hardy guy since '99):

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

They better do a Cop Killah off the top turnbuckle through the announcer's table in their next match.

And someone better counter that spot into a submission.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

ROH TV 4/27/2013 had:

SCUM vs C&C and Jay Lethal
Jay Lethal vs Rhett Titus
Matt Hardy and Rhino vs Adam Cole and Jay Briscoe

I reviewed the show here:

Overall thoughts: This show was pretty weak as compared to previous weeks. There was only one really good match and a little too much SCUM and Corino for my tastes. They also really didn't do a good job here of putting over some of the PPV matches as I didn't even know Whitmer and Titus were going to be in an I-Quit match. Let's not forget that they didn't even mention that Naomichi Marufuji won't be at the PPV, which is a big problem. I did like the short promos as the end though and wish they did more of them. This show can be skipped however and wasn't the greatest build to the PPV.

Some shots from the show:

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I was confused for a minute because Ringside members get the show on Monday. But then I remembered that on TV it actually airs over the weekend. I just watched last weeks show yesterday, with ACH in the main event. Here's my experience, blow by blow:

All in all, thought it was a pretty below average wrestling show when you compare it to other shows on the internet.

One match sucked.

One match didn’t even happen.

And the third match ended in shenanigans. I know shenanigans is a bold accusation but I think it fits.

I wanna see ROH do well but I’m just not feeling it.

The Opening Segment

Damn there’s a lot of members in SCUM. I’m sick of the over populated stable storyline. Sometimes less is more.

Corino calling Hardy Jesus was funny. Love Corino.

But hate Hardy. Is it me or was that Twist of fate slow and weak? The subpar punch was wasted motion too.

Strong VS Bennett

I’m not a fan of either of these guys. No charisma and their matches tend to be long and boring. That’s what happened here.

I like Mondo’s commentary. But why did he get up before Bennett accidentally speared him? Because Strong almost ran into him but didn’t?

I also don’t know why he attacked Strong after the match but it’s good to see him walking around again. I’m big on Mondo.

Santi VS Thomas

Awesome to see Santi in ROH. I’m a fan of his from WUW. I also like Thomas. Sick in the ring.

SCUM came out and ruined this. Just awful. I hate the SCUM storyline. And I hate this stupid stipulation. Just throwing my two cents in here, this doesn’t entice me to buy the PPV. It’s bad enough that the PPV’s are hardly ever worth the money. And it’s bad enough that SCUM has little to no entertainment value. But now they ruined what could have been a pretty decent match too?

And what was that weird comment about Jorge Santi’s body type? Couldn’t figure it out.

INside Ring of Honor

Jay’s promo was great, even though it made no sense. Mark’s was better. Love the Briscoes.

ACH VS Taven

Loved Truth Martini cock worshiping the belt. ROH needs to do more stuff like that. Loved Briscoe complaining about it. That’s a valid point.

Good match, loved the corkscrew dropkick and the hurricanranna into a frog splash.

Hated the way it ended. That kind of thing should be a spice, not the meat and potatoes of a wrestling show, the way it was in this episode.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

ROH TV 5/4/13 had:

Michael Elgin vs Karl Anderson
MsChif vs Davienne
Davey Richards vs Kyle O'Reilly

I reviewed the show here:

Overall thoughts: I thought this episode sucked. There was a ton of MOVESZ and no selling and it completely took me out of it. I hated the main and the Elgin/Anderson match wasn't much better. If you like all these guys you will love this show, but I don't like them and I hated it.

It was great to have Paul back in ROH after almost 10 years and his passion for wrestling showed through in Toronto.

- It was a pleasure for us to have Pro Wrestling NOAH's Taiji Ishimori with us last weekend in Toronto. Ishimori impressed everyone who saw him and ROH definitely wants Ishimori back very soon. Don't miss his match with Roderick Strong when it airs on ROH TV on May 25th!

- This week in the "Tuesday Rollout" we paid homage to one of the best World Title reigns of ROH's 11-year history with "Bryan Danielson: World Champion"!

- When ROH debuts in San Antonio on June 1st it will be Richards vs. the ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe (or BJ Whitmer) and signed yesterday, it will be “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin & “Buzzsaw” BJ Whitmer vs. Two Members of S.C.U.M fighting it out under Texas Tornado Rules! Nigel McGuinness has informed us that should Whitmer capture the World Title in Richmond he will have to take another look at this match since a World Title bout has already been guaranteed for that night but for now, it's Whitmer/Elgin vs. SCUM when honor comes to Texas! Tickets are on-sale now!!

Tickets for the general public will be available on starting Friday May 10th at 10am EST and then at the Mattamy Athletic Centre box office starting Monday May 13th.

- Cheeseburger was very popular in the locker room last Saturday after "Border Wars 2013". The young man celebrated with half of a wine cooler.

- A man who was not popular in the locker room last Saturday was Kevin Steen. Steen was defeated after begging Nigel to be Michael Elgin's tag partner when Jay Lethal injured his knee on a dive which left Elgin alone in a two-on-one situation. As a result of this victory, one member of S.C.U.M will now receive a future World Title Match AND Steve Corino will rejoin the commentary team. Steen is on a mission to prove himself by defeating each member of S.C.U.M leading to "Best in the World 2013" starting with Rhett Titus this weekend.

- Speaking of Rhett, his loyalty to Steve Corino is obvious and also quite dangerous. The mind control that Corino is able to pull off on his S.C.U.M members is fascinating...

- Nigel McGuinness has stated that he feels Adam Cole deserves a ROH World Title rematch due to Steve Corino's distraction but before he can get one there are a few men in front of the line for title shot opportunities. In particular, Michael Elgin earned a shot by defeating Jay Lethal at "Supercard of Honor VII" in NYC. Elgin however went to Nigel saying that he is ready for his shot at anytime but he wants to rid ROH of the SCUM distraction and redeem himself from his recent loss against "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson before he feels worthy to be champion.

- "Best in the World 2013" will be our biggest event of the summer and combining that with the TV Taping the next day makes it the biggest wrestling weekend of the summer! These events will be very special and fans in Baltimore will not be disappointed at our return to the Du Burns Arena on June 22nd and 23rd. Tickets for both events are available here in the ROH Store!

- ROH returns to the Providence, Rhode Island on July 27th at the RI Convention Center for another huge live event and tickets are on-sale NOW right HERE. Last August's event SOLD OUT, so don't delay getting your tickets!

- Be sure to check tomorrow for more announcements but also be sure to swing by and visit us at Twitter & Facebook for all of the latest news and info!
