I know what you mean, but with new viewers they had to let them know what ROH is about and introduce them to the wrestlers. I would think after the first couple of shows more wrestling will be shown.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Nah. Slow things down. Two matches per show is perfect for the average viewer. My biggest complaint about WWE and TNA is that they don't take advantage of formatting their shows and presenting a variety of programming. Its all matches and in-ring angles. Here we have a fresh take on wrestling show that actually makes it look and feel more like a real sport. That's a great thing, especially for a company that isn't pushing the phoney dramatic storylines.

Let's take a look at a big NYC show and in the process meet the World and Tag Team Champions. Let's have Cornette talk about the Code of Honor. I'd actually rather have all that stuff than another match.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I really liked the first show, but they have to change their taping schedule. The TV show needs to be used to build up the feuds and stories going into the IPPVs.

There's nothing wrong with selling the product either, but I'm sure Kelly will tone it down through time. He certainly can't spend every episode telling the audience that they "won't see action like this anywhere else". For now I just appreciate the dynamic Kevin and Nigel have as both guys have significant insight since they've been a part of the business for so long.
they both definitely got worse as time went on (Pearce turning Prazak heel didn't help) but 05-07 Leonard/Prazak might be my all-time favorite commentary team.

Kelly definitely brings some things to the table that others don't, but the more he tells me how great the match I'm watching is, the less I like the match, because he does it so often that it doesn't feel genuine any more, and that sense of disingenuousness carries over into my experience of the rest of the commentary. Some people hate Excalibur, but I've never once heard him try to sell me on how great the match going on was, and when he gets excited it feels legitimate and adds to the match.

I mean I'd rather have Kelly than Hogewood or that guy who did color with Gabe in 2003 (Ray Murrow?) but he's got some pretty significant flaws.

Also the dude needs to buy a suit or at least some darker pants.

the next two tapings at least should be entirely promoting the next iPPV. if they tape four weeks at a time, the current run will be done on October 15th, which means the ones taped in Louisville on the 1st will finish in mid-November and actually we could have four whole taping sets before the next iPPV.

Not suprised that TNA marks didn't like the show. After all, in ROH wrestling actually matters
***3/4 for both tag matches.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I'm certainly one of the few that really dug Hog. Few can match his boyish enthusiasm and no one since Solie has had that perfect sports announcer voice. If someone had just told him to drop the biased/face stuff he would probably have been great.

Leonard/Prazak were fine for commenting on independent wrestling, but neither of them have the chops to be a professional sports announcer. Leonard's voice sounds like he's calling a high school basketball game. Prazak never left the comic book store. Kelly's a little zany, but he gets the job done and I prefer him. Nigel sounds like he'd be right at home calling MMA, which is a perfect fit.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Prazak actually makes a pretty good play-by-play announcer on the SHIMMER dvds alongside Alison Danger and/or Portia Perez, I wouldn't mind a team consisting of him and Nigel.

Yeah. I guess at this point, if you say you're into TNA and that's what kind of wrestling show you like...whatever. I don't need to go in the TNA section and rip on the product, cuz Impact speaks for itself.

I'll probably watch for a few more weeks before I lose interest in ROH again much like I did with the HDNet show.

audio hurt it quite a bit tho. could barely hear the commentators at some points and it made the crowd sound like an Impact Zone one because I could barely hear them.
i don't believe the audio on this show..
