Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I have to say, one of ROH's major advantages for their TV show in comparison to WWE is their heavy use of pre-recording interview promos. Its amazing how not having to either cut a promo in front of a crowd or cut a backstage promo live really helps out mediocre guys not come off as ****. The only guys who come off as cringeworthy even in these videos are Edwards, Richards, and Caprice & Coleman. Provided, most guys aren't good, but only those 4 guys come off as bad and even Richards seems to have his good moments. Even the likes of O'Reilly and WGTT come off as tolerable.

Roderick has also impressed me a lot. His cocky, jerk jock routine is pretty funny, and unlike WWE heels, he isn't presented as a whiny bitch, just a douche. These promos are so much better than the video wires from earlier in the year. I still don't think he can be a top guy for ****, but the guy is personally growing on me.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

The only major problem I had with this week's episode was with the Kevin Steen segment. Not with Steen though, he was very good as usual but whoever hired his "lawyers" needs to be punched because they were terrible. And why when Steen was cutting his promo did they cut to one of them making the cheesiest face possible is beyond me.

I dig the segment, it was i little bit weird, but they are going to present Kevin Steen to de TV audience wich is great, "The Crimes Of Kevin Steen" will be amazing for sure. I also like the TV Champion segment is something new, more MMA angle i guess.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Just finished Episode 7(11/5). BY FAR the worst episode they've put on, mainly due to a lack of wrestling.

The Davey/Eddie segment was actually the best thing of the night. Curious to see who's training Eddie now.

Michael Elgin vs. Shiloh Jonze. Squash city. *

Inside ROH. Well they tried something different with the whole Steen suing angle. But his "lawyers" were fucking goofs. The Lethal/Bennett thing didn't really accomplish much. Just last week Cornette said no one say Steen's name and they aren't doing business with him, but now they're gonna promote him with this whole "The Crimes of Kevin Steen" thing? Yeah, that makes sense.

WGTT vs. Coleman & Alexander was borderline terrible. No chemistry between the two teams at all. C & C's offense looked really weak against Charlie & Shelton, who were noticeably quite larger than their opponents. I'm pretty sure the match was edited in at least one part and the camera missed moves late in the match. Not to mention the finish was as flat as Tara Reid's ass. Not impressed. **

Next week:

The Young Bucks vs. The Bravados (I'm assuming so)
American Wolves vs. Strong & Elgin

That sounds like it could be the best show so far wrestling wise.

Pretty much agree with all of the above.

A couple of positives were Davey's excellent promo work and Coleman being really athletic but, with the combination of cheesy backstage segments, clumsy squash matches and the Nigel (rightly tbh) pointing out the psychological flaws in the Proving Ground concept, it was a really bad show.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I'll agree it was the weakest show wrestling wise so far. But it did have some good promos like the Wolves one and STEEEEEEEN

I still see potential in Coleman and Alexander

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I wasn't a big fan of the Wolves promo. Just seem awkward, I was expecting for Eddie to hit him but never did.

It was a really weak show. I've been watching the SBG shows and I must say, it's no big difference from NWA Main Event(the indy promotion not WCW) I used to watch.

At this point I'd rank the old JAPW Worldwide's from 2005 over the SBG shows and those were 30 minute internet shows on youtube.
