Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
So I finally watched the show today.
Glad Nigel's back, he fits in well with his new role. The Bucks/Bravado's match was a nice opener and served it's purpose well. I also think introducing the code of honor as they did was a great idea, as it was a big part of Ring of Honor history and as someone else said earlier, explains the name, Ring of Honor.
Davey's promo and the clips from BITW were a nice little addition to get new fan's excited to tune in to see Richards defend his title in the future. That also served it's purpose well.
Mark Briscoe is still awesome.
Finally, the Kings are a great team to show on the first episode however the match didn't do a whole lot for me. Good match but I don't know, didn't enjoy it as much as I should have. Still though, great showcase of both tag teams and the first episode showed the strength of ROH's tag division.
All in all, I enjoyed the show, best televised wrestling product going right now, and this episode proved it. Looking forward to future episodes.
