Re: Anyone catch ROH on TV today?

It looks like shit, and a huge production downgrade from HDNet. At least it's anamorphic, but it's a lazy anamorphic. Looks like standard 4:3 just zoomed and stretched out for 16:9 screens.

They will be able to run shows in the markets the show airs and create a bigger fanbase than they have currently. They will have a wider presence than ECW had throughout most of their existence, and ROH will have real crowds and not just a bunch of people trying to get out of the heat like in the impact zone.

I watched it

Anyone saying the production values are worst than HDnet must be pretty blind

Re: Anyone catch ROH on TV today?

HDNet looked pretty damn crystal clear in comparison. It actually was at least filmed in HD.

Re: Anyone catch ROH on TV today?

the production is dated but not really as bad as HDnet lol The audio could be a little better. The shows entrance is not bad either.

Re: Anyone catch ROH on TV today?

actually the show does look like it was filmed in the early 90's. i'm pretty sure they will improve that though

Re: Anyone catch ROH on TV today?

It's on now here... I don't give a shit about the "production" values especially if we get great matches. I prefer the toned down style in many respects, though if they get clearer picture I certainly won't mind

But so far it has been a fantastic show and hopefully this starts picking up steam.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

SPOILER ALERT!!!

I just got done watching the first episode. I am going to give my first impressions. I've watch a few matches on Youtube, and never been to a live show. So this post is coming from someone who know little of ROH.

First the show was rated TV-PG. That's right THE PG ERA has come to ROH!! HA HA HA!! Seriously this had little effect on the action. In fact some of the stuff the show teased, seem too intense for the rating.

The show opens with Kevin Kelly in the middle of the Ring. He introduced the color commentator and the main event. Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team vs The Kings of Wresting.

Not long after that was the first match which was a tag team match. They did a small video on each team that tells me a little about each team. The action was great. IT was back and forth. The crowd called one guy Justin Beiber. The match had me on the edge of my seat and was not bored. The commentary action talked about moves during the match and NOT wasting most of the time telling other stories.

Next they went over the Code of Honor for new fans introduced by Jim Cornette. Also there was a segment about the current ROH Champ winning an event in NY city. There was a segment about the Wrestling's Greatest Tag team getting jump by the Bristo Bros with chairs. Another guy came in with sticks and other weapons. (forgive me if I screw up the names)

They also promoted Jay Lethal taking on the TV champ for next weeks show. He seamed more serious here and not silly like he was in TNA. Looking forward to that.

Finally there was the main event. It lasted about 15 min with two SHORT commerical breaks. The match again was back and forth, had you on the edge of your seat. The Kings of Wrestling had Sara Del Ray at ringside. I was watching for her to do interference but it never happened. The commentators did hint she was known to do that BTW. (In TNA & WWE interference is always a guarantee.) Sara was dressed normal which is rare to see a woman on TV wrestling these days. By normal I mean T-shirt & jeans. No dress or skimpy outfit. This was REFRESHING to see actually.

Overall, I thought the show was great for the the one hour time. HAd a good balance of action and just enough other material to introduce to you ROH, what to look forward too in the near future on the show, and the promos were just the right amount of time. I will watch again next week.
