I think hes doing right, but he is not in the "People throwing toilet paper at me" level yet.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I say that they're doing the best they can with Ciampa at the moment. His alignment with the Embassy gives him his heat and I think they hope that it will rub off in him ala Vickie/Dolph. I doubt he'll get Jimmy Rave heat anytime soon though.

ROH on Sinclair - Episode 11 - 3/12/11

1. Shiloh Jonze vs Tommaso Ciampa
*1/2

Really enjoyed the Steen/Corino segment

Also enjoyed the twins whoever they were.

2. The Young Bucks vs FutureShock
***1/4

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

This weeks episode wasn't that great. ANX vs. WGTT was ok and that's all I'll say about, I have to agree with what's becoming the consensus and that's WGTT just don't have chemistry with ROH tag teams. This match made it quite apparent

On the brighter note, the build-up to Final Battle has been really good in my opinion

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I'm not really enjoying these ROH episodes on SBG. Some promos are really good *a la Keven Steen but for the most part a lot of these episodes just don't really excite me as much as I initially thought they would. =( Still will be tuning in week in and week out regardless.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

A few thoughts on the show overall:

-I think that the shows are enjoyable, but are neither really exciting or making me seriously care. I'm having a hard time being emotionally invested in the shows and ROH is going to have to put on something better to truly convice viewers to pay for the product. However, I actually don't feel really embarrased to watch the product other than stuff like Roderick's lady man gimmick which is a major positive. Unlike WWE and TNA, ROH really doesn't put out anything that's mind-boggling stupid.

-The storylines are okay, neither bad or good, but mostly logical and feel like they are building towards something. But personally, I feel its a good thing that storyline drama don't dominate the TV shows like it does for WWE or TNA. Storylines dominating the focus of the shows is okay when a storyline is written and executed well and has serious momentum behind it, but reeks of over-exaggeration and stupidity when the storylines aren't hugely entertaining. Its some ROH needs to work on, but its more of an issue in regards to the lack of seriously strong characters rather than pure booking.

Thoughts on some of the wrestlers:

-I like the cocky, smug personality of Roderick Strong but dislike the whole ladies' man thing. First of all, its completely pointless story wise since the show has no female characters other than Princess Mia and is almost a non-factor in how he interacts with anyone on the show. Secondly, he isn't convincing at all. Thirdly, it contrasts with Truth and Micheal Elgin making me wonder why he's a part of the group.

-Young Bucks = joke villians. Goofy, somewhat funny, and fun to watch in the ring (though kind of spotty), but impossible to take seriously. I'm actually a fan of them, but I'm just salivating at the prospect of a badass wrestler like Steen coming in and owning them.

-Briscoes and Micheal Elgin might be my two most favorite wrestlers. With Richards, Future Shock, Bennett, Kenny King, and Lethal trailing by a mile.

you do realize that that is exactly the point, right?

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

This week's episode just seemed like it was there, Bravados vs. C&C Wrestling Factory was ok for an undercard match and ANX/WGTT was fine if unremarkable. Can't remember a thing about the Perkins match or who he even faced.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

So I haven't watched an episode since the Wolves/HoT match. Is there anything I really need to see?

Richards vs. O'Reilly from either the week after that match or two weeks after. Also the Steen/Corino segment
