Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

E04 Thoughts

- Thought the stuff that they did with the commentators was great. I'm sick of the Michael Coles: 1) Seeing injustices clearly first time and 2) Not caring.
- The magazine type stuff is really informative and reminds me of (cult UK reference) Transworld Sport. Perfect for late night or weekend afternoon TV.
- Elgin is the kind of guy that will go on a three month tour of Japan, at some point, and come back as the best thing going in wrestling. You can see it in him.

- Main gripe: Length of the tapings meant that much of the crowd had rushed off to get home. Visibly less people there on this episode. Quieter too. Something that can, realistically, be improved upon.

Transworld btw:

no, it's absolutely not that.

we'll see what happens once the introductory period is over but so far this has been more skippable than HDNet.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

watching RoH on sinclair has been the first bit of wrestling ive watched in months, im not a big RoH fan but not of it and the workers. I love the show, for me personally i have enjoyed all the matches, ive liked the segments introducing or talking about the workers, the production isn't very good but i get past it because its nice to see some actual wrestling! im exited to watch it every week and have deleted every other wrestling show off my sky + because this is all i need!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not Removing Until:

1) A WWE/TNA show keeps me hooked for the whole two hours
2) Anelina/Velvet Sky or Daffney do playboy
3) Christian gets a proper title reign

No, what I said this is a new show. It should be a clean slate, and ROH should use that clean slate to educate that fans on who these guys are without references the past that much. The audience shouldn't have to search the internet and buy old dvds to learn about the history. It's the same problem with comic books. The show feels like it's for its' existing fans, not new ones.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

The show needs a name as well. Like ROH ....

Every other wrestling promotion with a weekly show has a name for it. Makes it easier to distinguish the TV Show from other shows and easier to promote and such.

This is exactly what I thought. Also the opening titles need to be changed, the HDNet ones where great, why not keep the same kind of thing?

Have to disagree. I'm new to ROH due to the TV show, and I am following the show just fine. They have done a good job for example introducing and showing a new star every week. For example, the Briscos in the first three weeks. By the time they had their match on tv this week I was invested in seeing what they were really like. They kind of remind me of the Bushwackers if they were not a comedy act in the WWE. (Not an intended insult BTW)
