Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Not sure where else to put this but I just ordered my combo tickets to the ROH/Chikara doubleshot in Chicago in April. Front-Row both events!!!

On-topic: Having Davey vs. Lethal on TV isn't a bad idea. Lethal earned his original title shot and got screwed out of it. Plus it gives them a big match for the next TV tapings

WF's first official Mike Bennett mark

Looking forward to Perkins/Prodigy and especially Elgin/Kyle, they had an amazing contest at SOTF.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Elgin/Kyle should be good.

The Philly match started off slow but was insanely good during the climax.

Not as good as Generico/Davey but better than Davey/Eddie Final Battle

I mean, just look at some of the guys Dragon faced

Lance Storm
Rocky f'ing Romero
Kamala (I dont even remember that)
Sonjay Dutt got a title shot for god's sake

And then when you also factory in Dragon's title reign, let's look at how many rematches he had

2 Matches with Joe
3 matches with Delirious
4 Matches with Roderick
2 Matches with Aries
4 Matches with Colt
4 Matches with Nigel

People complain that Davey and Roddy have had like 3 matches, I can't imagine how much people would complain if that booked like that today.

I'm too lazy to look at Nigel's rematches but I'll just say

He defended the belt vs Erick Stevens, Larry Sweeney (RIP), Vic Viper (no clue) Kaio (no clue), D-Lo Brown which was stupid enough, but then he had a 5 star classic against Ruckus!

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Danielson did the open contract gimmick during his title reign so yeah there was a reason. I'm fine with Davey and Roddy having a million title matches together as long as they're all great matches. That's the difference.

The Storm match was awesome btw and the Romero and Dutt matches were both good too. Kamala match happened in another promotion.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Having such random opponents devalues matches, at least in my opinion

Your opinion is uninformed.

And also dangerously close to "wrong". Name a title defense that happened in ROH before 2008 that wasn't worthwhile, or devalued the belt, or was "random" without any storyline reasoning, or whatever you want to say. I can think of maybe three.
