Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Something about this show just hasn't clicked for me. Part of it could be that I was there live and I couldn't imagine watching some of those matches again. I agree there needs to be a name and better credits. Briscoes are always entertaining and I wish Jay was feuding with Davey or something rather than chase the tag belts again. They just need some compelling feuds and more interesting TV.

They can promote they products, but to rely heavily on the past makes it difficult for new fans to start watching (and when I say new fans I mean more of a casual audience than internet fans).

I'm saying introduce their personality, their characters, but not to rely so heavily on past history. For instance, the Kevin Steen angle. Only a longtime fan would know about Steen, yet they've decided to bring it up by having a fan in the audience shout, "Bring back Steen". The casual fan doesn't know who he is and will probably have a difficult time investing in the feud without knowing the past.

Anyway, I just watched the 3rd episode. It was a lot better than the first two episode and I may watch the fourth episode because of it. ROH has a long way to go. They're not even close to TNA or WWE. Hell, I would put them next to NWA Hollywood at the moment.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Episode 4(10/15) in the books. Overall I gotta say it was the most underwhelming episode thus far. Right off the bat you could tell there were some people who had the left the show. Crowd wasn't as lively and they took the lights off of them.

Briscoes/ANX was there. Briscoes video package beforehand was the real highlight. Hilarious stuff. The match was ok but I wanted more of an old school formula. Control segment wasn't long enough and the finish was meh. At the time of the tapings, having Jimmy revoke the win and saying no one are the number one contenders makes sense to set up Ladder War, but when the episode airs well after that match it's get you scratchin your head. Not their best encounter. **3/4

None of the other video segments really did anything for me. Although I will say I think Lethal has the most charisma of everyone on the roster.

Edwards/Elgin kinda disappointed me as well. Wasn't bad at all, just felt like they were rushing through things. Runnin through spots, not selling them enough, and again I wanted a long control segment that wasn't there. Edwards suicide dive to the outside was pretty awesome but besides that I think their Defy or Deny match was much better. And please, do not tease me with Nigel if he's not gonna wrestle. ***1/4

First match for the third tapings:

World TV Title Rematch
Jay Lethal (c) vs. El Generico

And a new letter from Corino:

Everyday I try to get better but today I felt like I needed to write because of what Edgar Allen Poe described in “The Telltale Heart” as an “over-acuteness of the senses”. Nervousness...Regret.

In September, I left Ring Of Honor and the possibility of a one-on-one match with El Generico at Death Before Dishonor in New York City, for a tour of Japan. I knew The Monster was around. I knew what He would do. But I left anyway. And I was wrong to do that.

Every night in Japan, I would stay up and wonder what The Monster would do in New York City. I wondered how the fans would react. I wondered if both Jimmy Jacobs and El Generico would survive. I tried to sleep but I could feel my heart beat.

I knew that one day I would have to face my demons and wrestle El Generico. I can’t get out of it. ROH won’t let me.

For almost a year now, I have begged and pleaded for management, staff, wrestlers, and fans to forgive me. I have changed. I am not the man that I was a year ago. It is not easy. I do have temptations. You can’t expect me not to have them. But I have done so much wrong that I don’t expect anyone to trust me.

As my heart beats through my chest, I know that I have to get in the squared circle and face the man that I tried to destroy. I am ready. But I also know the possibility that The Monster is near. I know that if He does get involved, it could lead to my termination at Ring Of Honor. I created this Monster and ultimately I am responsible.

Maybe it is time for me to accept this as my penance. Maybe it will be my sacrifice. Maybe this is my legacy.

I am ready.

Steve Corino

Corino Vs Steen at Final Battle FTW!!!!!!!

--ROH has announced a policy with the ROH title involving non-title matches. Whenever an ROH champion is in a non-title match instead of it being called non-title, it will be called a "Proving Ground" match the stipulation is that if the champion loses a "Proving Ground" match, or goes to a draw, he will get an automatic championship shot within 60 days. They also announced ROH champion Davey Richards vs. Kyle O'Reilly in a Proving Ground match on 10/30 for Rampage Pro Wrestling in Warner-Robins, GA at Johnny G's Fun Center.
I don't hate the idea. Especially if it sees decent outsiders come in for shots at Davey to freshen things up.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

^^ You're probably right.

That proving ground thing sounds awesome.
