Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

MiSu in ROH would be awesome, but he's not a NOAH wrestler really is he? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Kotaro Suzuki would be great aswell.

Last I checked MiSu is a Freelancer, so nothing stopping them from booking him anyway other than money or MiSu giving a shit.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I have always liked puroresu but never really watched it regularly, so I don't really know about NOAH wrestlers anything. But I love the idea that ROH and NOAH change some talent again because last time it was freshing. But somebody mentioned Finlay. Finlay as regular ROH talent would be something awesome. He could get some talent more over and I'm pretty damn sure that every ROH wrestler has something to learn from Finlay. So he would be kinda good hiring because younger guys could learn from Finlay something and be better in future.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

MiSu isn't happening. The only non NOAH japanese guys that would be realistic to get come over would all be juniors. Plus MiSu isn't connected with NOAH anymore and whilst he's working New Japan he wont be doing a states tour. If Togo's retirement tour makes it's way to the US after Europe then ROH would be wise to bring him in for a date or two.

Got around to watching the first 2 episodes, some quick thoughts.

- Arena looked packed which was great

- The tweet of the week thing needs to go RIGHT NOW. The TNA shot was so sad and bitter on Cornette's part it was sad

- Whoever that girl was they got to model the "ROH Apparel" they need to get her back to do more stuff RIGHT NOW

- The guy the voice over for them plugs seriously needs to slow down.

- Never talk to wrestling fans and air it on TV

- A lot of the out of ring segments were horribly scripted and sounded like some high school student was writing a essay on ROH. Davey's first with Kelly was so tedious. Brisoces one was much better because it was so much more natural and not fake scripted bullshit

- Kevin Kelly needs to be toned down a little. Just too full on and cheery and fake for me

- Nigel's return was great. Didn't sound the most natural commentator and him and Kelly need to work on their chemistry but the fundamentals were there and he's obviously going to improve. "The only way to beat 2 Kings is 2 aces and they're on their way to the ring right now"

- Don't ever say that anyone was beaten half to death again

- The Code Of Honor thing on the tale of the tape was odd. Either have all of the heels as no or don't bother with it at all

- Leaving the gym floor on show was a horrible decision

- If they're going to bleep out swear words then don't even have the wrestlers say them. Bleeping them out with a ring bell made them look like a total joke.

- Magazine type show was a nice touch, something different and works

Matches were all fine although nothing great. Bravados/FS was the weakest of their matches so far. Control segment sucked but it was a great showcase for FS and that's the main thing. FS promo was so corny but not their fault they got given that material. If I'd never watched ROH before then I probably wouldn't have had any clue that Bravados were heels

WGTT/Kings was a well worked STF match up until the hot tag and it's impossible for a well worked STF tag not be good. Good heat segment and built well to the tag. Got very Indy get my shit in after the tag but whatever. Really sucked how KOW never really got a send off from ROH and they just sorta left. Better than the HTCS match but below the other 2.

No thoughts on the WGTT promo. Wasn't bad nor good but I guess it served it's purpose.

Bennett feature was really good and made him look like a total superstar. Shame his match didn't back the feature up but that's to be expected. Hated how insignificant Jacobs and Corino were presented as during this. I was fine with the result and how they presented Bennett but this is why you need squashes and jobbers on some shows so you don't have to hurt another roster guy when you want to have someone like Bennett look dominant over another guy. Jacobs and Corino not getting mic time either before the match made me sad as they're 2 of very few legit good talkers that they have and they should have capitalised on that.

Eddie's promo on the magazine rocked. He's not a great talker and he wasn't here either but he told a great story and got his character over really fucking well in an instant. Only guy to make me care about his character on the first 2 shows.

Strong's promo was actually shockingly good besides the stupid ring bells. Came off as a total jackass heel and built up the match next week nicely. Davey's was horrible again though.

Lethal/Generico was a solid match. Nothing memorable or special in the first 15 minutes. Overtime rocked and the crowd starting going nuts and they had an amazing little sprint after the time limit. Not a fan of them reusing the same booking idea from Daniels/Edwards though but I'm fine with it.

Production looked ok too. Needs to be filmed in HD though in the current era.

No major complaints the show bar the few minor gripes that I listed and none of those really bring the show quality down

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Maybe I'm looking too much into this, but I have noticed recently that Kevin Steen and Colt Cabana have been exchanging tweets about their feud last year. It pretty much has to do with the shit they got from the front office. I thought of the idea when Steen comes back that he and Cabana could be a team. Cabana, in my opinion, is stale and could use the heel turn. Just pure speculation on my part, but I think it could be a good angle.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Wait, are the Young Bucks and C&C officially signed 'cause there was no mention of it on the website like there was about TJP signing.Either way, it looks like ROH is going to be using all those guys more often so it's all good.They definitely needed some additions to the roster and those five are GREAT additions.Along with Rhino who needs to wrestle at more shows than just the NY ones.I also hope Homicide is back for good.Yes he's been hit or miss since his return but he's a name and can go and that's what ROH needs, guys with name value AND in-ring skills.The crazy thing is Mike Bennett has neither and is one of the most pushed guys on the roster.That feels like something WWE would do.

It actually looks like this is exactly where they're headed.

This could be great... and I'd expect Del Rey to be involved too, since she was also supposedly discarded by ROH.

I think Bennett is little bit underrated in eyes of internet fans. Okey he isn't that good in ring and yeah he don't really have name value. But he is charismatic, great with mic and he looks like real superstar. And I think he can wrestle better than fans says he does. His style isn't just typical indystyle. Still Bennett has been disapointment if you remember the hype which he get when he was coming to ROH.

I agree. The Bennett hate, I just don't get it. His character is interesting, he can talk, and yes, he can wrestle. He just doesn't fit in a wrestling style ROH promotes. I guess that's why people hate him so much. I like him.

EDIT: I noticed in last episode, the segment with Eddie Edwards, regarding his "Die Hard" nickname, how the Ladder War 2/broken elbow situation was the origin of the "Die Hard" moniker, but they lie. He was "Die Hard" when he debuted with the company, IIRC.
