I love that he went to promo class with all the FCW clones. He's like the kid who keeps having to retake 4th grade. I bet he'll still be going to promo class when he's 50. "Oh look, old man Morrison is here again. They say he'll win his first world title soon."
Is it me, or has the video editing of the backstage interviews been really odd this week? Sudden shifts to black and white, briefly zooming in for no apparent reason, etc. It's been really distracting.
Just enjoy the product for now. The presentation will come.
I honestly had no major problem with the presentation of the show before tonight. It was never great, but it also wasn't bad enough to distract me from what was going on. But the way they edited the interviews this week was just...ugh.
- Two quirky, creative matches.
- Bennett channeling Chael Sonnen. Jamin Olivencia #cocaineisahellofadrug
- Two awesome, tobacco-spittin' Briscoes promos. Between which Jay & Mark switched hair with each other.
-Mike Mondo is a great performer, I followed him throughout OVW earlier in the year and the end of last year and he has really came into his own. Don't know how the small man gimmick will play out in ROH though. I also like Alex Silva as well, I've only seen a couple of his matches in OVW past his debut but the guy has potential.
-Mike Bennett & J.O. was a pretty decent match, Bennett seems to picking up his pace in the ring and stringing together his offense a bit more and it definitely helps the style he wrestles and his matches.
-The Briscoes continue to be the MVPs of 2011 and the most standout personalities on the roster. Their consistency for the brand this year has been top notch. I can see why the Briscoes are my friend's favorite wrestlers.
-I've followed Caprice Coleman since his days in NWA back in 2009 and to this day I still love his promos. Great look, lots of charisma glad to see ROH pick him up.
-Davey Richards vs. Kyle O'Reilly was a great TV main event. KO continues to prove that progression > experience, while I didn't enjoy this match as much as Roddy/KO, I did love the reversals towards the ending stretch. All in all a solid show.
Yeah ROH has had a few consistency issues since integrating the TV show into their operations. But if you're following the TV show and iPPVs only then it should be a bit easier to follow for you. Its when you start adding DVDs, Live shows and other mediums to the fold is when it gets complicated. You should still get the gist of the storylines though, its not like they have any overly complex storylines.
