the one who makes suspension of disbelief the hardest and who is eye-rollingly out of place whenever he's on screen?
okay here's how to get into ROH immediately: watch every James Gibson and Paul London match. they're both names you'll recognize, there's not a whole lot to get through, and neither was given a fair shot by WWE and when you look at what they could do in the ROH environment, you'll be blown away and want to see more. that's when you start getting into the Punk, Joe, Dragon, Nigel stuff. probably in that order is best.
ROH history is so much fun because there's no overload like their would be with WWE and no revisionism. it was so well-booked for so many years that the narratives are easy to remember, because they're logically consistent. it's really unlike any other promotion in that sense.
