Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I think I read something about this show won't be doing squash matches.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Bucks/Bravados will be a solid spotfest.

I really liked the previous Lethal/Bennett match. It kinda felt like a good WWE TV match.

Pumped to see Coleman&Alexander, even if they'll get jacked by WGTT pretty quickly. So much for not having squashes on the show.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I know Richards was in Japan for the first taping and I don't think it's quite time for a World Championship match on TV yet. But I think they do need to get him out there for a promo or angle ASAP. Newer fans need a chance to get to know him. And then a well-hyped well-wrestled title match on TV, with or without a change could give this show some good buzz.

Davey was at the tapings and will defend the title in probably 2 weeks against Strong.

I understand that in principle but there is no way that the show wouldn't have been better if you had put a nice 5 minute match in between the 20 minutes of highlight videos we saw. Since a lot of those videos were about the champion and it's just a good idea to put the champion on the first show a short Richards match would have fit in well there.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Not doing squash matches ever sounds like a stupid idea IMO. I mean they don't need to do one every week or anything but they do serve a purpose.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I thought some of the squashes on HDNet were actually very effective. Eddie Kingston, Rasche Brown, and DCFC all got over pretty quickly by throwing smaller guys around and knocking jobbers out.

That's not really Davey's style, though, and certainly no way to present the World Champion. Although I'll put money down any time Richards steps in the ring with Kozina again. If there's anyone who CAN sell the Richards style in a squash, its Tony Kozina.

Change of topic...

Can we please, please, PLEASE get TJP vs. Ciampa booked for Saturday's taping?

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Is this the same deal as with HDNet where there are no public TV ratings, then?

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

No. It's a little different. HDNet chooses not to release ratings for any of their programming. The ROH show is broadcast on separate but affiliated syndicated networks across the country and is shown at different time slots and on different days. Theoretically, you could gather all the data and come up with one approx. number, but ratings for this show are virtually meaningless. There is no way to compare this with TNA or WWE, for example, since those shows air at the same time on their respective cable networks.

Since SBC both owns and are the sole broadcasters of ROH, I highly doubt they are ultimately concerned with getting great ratings. What they are primarily focused on is using the syndicated programming as a means of getting the ROH brand some recognition in target markets and then utilizing that recognition within the market to run live events.
