Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Yeah Bennett is pretty good imo, he's not flashy at all which is why some people don't like him, but he doesn't need to be in order to have a good match, just see his match with Generico that jawbreaker pointed out, and it wasn't just Generico carrying that match. He has a ton of charisma which helps and is so good on the mic too.

I remember seeing that match live in Collinsville and singing some praise here the forums. I'm glad some others agree that it was a great match!

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

25/02

Good promos from Bucks and C&C. Their match was pretty good with both teams usual spots.

I like how they have Steen say a little something backstage (if he's not on the episode) each week. I also really like how they somehow make him seem likeable and funny whilst being a massive dick at the same time. That man is awesome and he plays his role so freakin' well.

Davey vs Lethal was a bloody great tv match made a lot better by the awesome crowd. This Baltimore crowd rocks for the most part. They were seriously behind Lethal here and even some boo's for Davey and when Lethal looked like he was going to win off the elbow drop they went crazy. Reminded me of an old ROH crowd from between 05-07. the match itself was really good and had a great finishing stretch and I liked how Davey won, a bit like how HBK used to just fall on the guy after doing SCM. I liked the brawling too between everyone that came out. Having them all brawling on the outside while Davey and Lethal carried on their match looked great and that's what started the crowd going. Also Ciampa came off as a complete badass just sitting there watching the match in all the chaos. Great stuff. ***3/4.

Really digging this show now, they have found a really good balance between getting the feuds over and having entertaining matches. It's so much better being able to see the fucking crowd and their reactions and hearing them and adds a lot to the shows and matches. One of the reasons I was going off ROH for a bit was because of the dark arenas and shitty crowd micing but they seem to have sorted that stuff out with this arena.

Cole is putting a ton of effort into being a non-entity in that pic.

Sure. It's a metaphor for Cole's ROH career thus far & a lesson in working the camera from the other three.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

The 25/2 show is the first I've watched since maybe episode 3 & the improvements are massive. Really impressed with how they interwove several storylines heading into the NY & FL PPVs, and used the very good Davey vs. Lethal main event as a focal point for so many guys. It could have been a complete mess, but ROH got it spot on. They also managed to make the tag team division seem complex & competitive without being confusing, so hats off all round. I'm actually starting to look forward to Sunday night - it has to be an improvement on Final Battle, right?
