Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Some stuff from this weeks Observer

- House Show Crowds were down on what was hoped for and what ROH had previously done in the area.
- Apparently the shows doing good ratings not to far off TNA. Just not as many people can view it.
- Haas & Benjamin have 2 yr contracts and everyones being paid better now then when Cary was running ROH
- Everyones being flown around so expenses have gone up.
- ROH are looking to tape TV in Baltimore

Gotta be Collinsville, I was there live and I'd guess around 300 people were there which is disappointing but not surprising. If ROH wants to build new markets or improve existing ones they need to run shows there more consistently and present stronger cards. Other than the main event the only interesting thing billed for the show was hometown boy Delirious trying to end Ciampa's streak and that match was axed before the show

I'm really happy to hear that everyone is getting paid better. They deserve it!

Why the Haas/Benjamin hate?

I feel by and large they've delivered the goods since arriving.

I can think of worse free agent that could have been brought in.

they haven't delivered the goods in any way, unless "the goods" are overly long matches that are at no point exciting and never go anywhere

can you think of the last time an ROH wrestler had a match so bad they apologized to the audience afterwards?

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

You'll always find a couple of people that are just too repressed to allow themselves to enjoy the things that are over, Heyman. Some people just have to play the victim.

An act not being someone's cup of tea is one thing but not being able to swallow your pride and accept it; when that act's employers reward their measurable, continued success; is just sad.

I mean it was only 18 months ago that having an iconic team like WGTT in ROH seemed like a wild fantasy. The run of dream matches; against KOW, Briscoes, Wolves etc.; was all kinds of fun, for any fan of tag wrestling, especially in light of the way tag wrestling is now almost non-existent in the mainstream. Business-wise, WGTT have been a record-breaking asset to ROH and, in terms of critical acclaim, they've been well-received. Hence the long contracts, hence the continued push.

Their title run is in it's closing stages now and, looking back, one or two sloppy matches, that can be put down to Shelton working through recent abdominal issues, aren't enough to make me nostalgic over the days of Izzy & Dixie, The Carnage Crew, Divine Storm and Da Hit Squad.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Now I'm "repressed". Okay.

I've fallen asleep during WGTT matches four times this year out of the seven I've watched. The three that have been good enough to keep me awake were vs. the Kings (twice) and Future Shock.

Live reports on WGTT-Briscoes from Toronto said it was awful. Live reports on WGTT-FS from Detroit said that it was disappointing and WGTT couldn't get it to the level that FS are capable of. TaylorFitz said WGTT-Wolves in Atlanta was awful and the four-way tag at BITW was the worst match he's ever seen live. Benjo agreed on the Atlanta match.

They may be good for business, but that doesn't make the matches they've had good. And comparing them to awful teams that haven't wrestled for ROH since 2003 is misguided. They're in the running for worst ROH tag champs ever with the Briscoes' most recent reign, Special K, and the Carnage Crew. When you factor in the fact that they've held the belts for seven months and counting, where the Briscoes dropped them after three and Special K and the Carnage Crew had them for two weeks, it's pretty clear that Haas and Benjamin have had the single worst tag title reign ever.

Actually, not one match they've had in their reign has matched Special K vs. the Briscoes from Main Event Spectacles. So there's that too.
