Favourite(s): Mr. ROH, El Ingobernable, The Conqueror
Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
Finally caught up and finished Episode 3(10/8). Gotta say it was definitely my favorite so far. Briscoes promo was 800x more entertaining than WGTT's from ther week before. Real excited for next week.
They did a fantastic job of showcasing Ciampa & Nana. I actually really enjoyed the match with Ridge. It wasn't a total squash and the chop/kick fest on the apron was pretty awesome. Ciampa's finisher has never looked better than it did here. Solid opener. **1/2
The Steen thing was pretty funny. WANKER
Roddy's interview segment was a lot worse than last week, he came off like a queer. Davey's got really emotional and I had no problems with it besides the weird camera angle they used right on his face.
Davey/Roddy I couldn't help but love. They can't have a bad match together. Stiff as balls of course but at times it did seem kinda slow and quiet. Roddy has to have the best cardio and stamina of any guy in the company. The chains of moves he puts together late in matches are just fucking insane. Match was pretty great but the last several seconds were a tad overkill. Davey should've just won after the kick to the head. Best match in SBG TV history to this point. haha. ***3/4
I haven't watched episode 3. I like both Davey and Roddy, but I have no desire to watch them wrestle again, especially since I don't think they will ever have a better match than some of their earlier ones, which is sad because I think they have the potential to do something even better.
Davey vs. Roddy was a Richards match through & through. There was none of Strong's relentless assault on the back which elevated his series with Edwards. They just leathered each other back-and-forth ad nauseum. It was like watching the highlights of a dozen main events edited together by someone with ADD.
Also, the commentators seemed really tired on this show - lots of stumbling over words & half-finished cliches left hanging.
I'm late to the show but I'm really starting to love the ROH product. I'm still very ignorant about the history but I'm trying to learn so be patient with me and kindly correct me if I say something stupid or so absurd that you wanna kill me... haha trust me I don't mean to do that. But I am learning.
Right now I absolutely love The Briscoe's and I'm sure that surprises absolutely no one. I really enjoyed the Strong v. Richards match from this weeks episode. I'd love to watch those two guys wrestle each other all day long.
The show comes on twice for me. Saturday at 2 pm which is really bad for me and I haven't watched that one and then again Sunday night at midnight which is technically Monday morning.
