Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
I usually don't agree with Seabs when it comes to ROH, but I think he's pretty much dead on with this one.
The new show has done absolutely nothing for me. This can be summed up best via the fact that highlight of these first four shows has been some idiot fan yelling "Bring back Kevin Steen" into a microphone, and not, as it should be, the wrestling. The wrestling has been fine. There's been nothing bad by any means, and it's still the best wrestling on television by a long, long way, but it's been nothing spectacular either. I'm fully aware of the transitional and introductory nature of the programme too, and in wrestling greatness comes through freshness, originality and storytelling, something that is hard to achieve in four weeks worth of shows using a bunch of matches we have mostly seen before.
But Kevin Kelly has not only been terrible; the man has been downright scary. Surely I can't be the only one who feels uncomfortable watching him? The man looks so psychotic I half expect him to whip out a razor blade and slash Nigel's throat at any second.
I'm sure it will get better, though. I bloody hope so, otherwise I have precisely no modern wrestling to watch. I can't keep living in the 80s. It's warping my mind.
