That is why it's called organized crime.

Don't know if they'll be fully able to fix continuity issues as long as they have to tape 4 episodes in a month while still doing DVD shows. Show was pretty good for the first time out, commentary should get better as they work together and the only annoying thing was the audio issues. FutureShock/Bravados was fine and WGTT/Kings was pretty good besides the flat finish most WGTT matches have.

I accept the problem with the dvd shows, that's probably unavoidable but it shouldn't be happening with the IPPVs. Much as I hate to say it, TNA get that one thing right by taping their shows immediately the previous PPV, at least with that you don't get a situation like we had here with

Spoiler for :
Haas & Benjamin still being champions at the IPPV despite having a title match due to be broadcast 7 days later and seeing Jay Lethal with the TV title 14 days before we're going to see him win the thing


That's been a problem for a while, I remember seeing Truth Martini accompany Roderick Strong at DBD VIII before he was introduced on the HDNET show.

- FS/Bravados was decent, some cool spots from FS.
- Liked Lethal's promo more than Davey's
- WGTT/KOW was ok, WGTT need a better finisher.
- Hope future shows feature more than 2 matches.
- I'm not signing up for a GA membership simply to watch their show.

I love the old school feel. It may feel low-budget, but hey, it makes it look like a wrestling show, something I really miss these days.

Awesome bit of TV.

LOVED the magazine show type stuff, like Kevin Kelly on the streets of New York. One thing that really annoys me about WWE and TNA is that their shows aren't set in any particular world, real or otherwise. There's no context to anything. You're just watching some cartoons that, as far as you know, live in a sports arena and wear underpants all day.

ROH did a great job of creating a whole world populated with real human beings, with it's own moral code. A lot was achieved by the non-wrestling segments of the show. Which is refreshing.

Just got a chance to watch the show and thought it was great! The two matches were both very good particularly the main event. I also enjoyed the stuff in between the matches. Looking forward to next week already! my only concern is that from what I've seen the show will be up on the website on thursday, I think this is too late and will mean a lot of fans, me included, will download it rather than watch it on the site

Great debut TV show, only lol moment for me was everytime they showed a shot of the store it wasn't ROH DVDs they showed but PWG and the Shelly Martinez shoot.

I loved it.

Seeing Nigel back was fucking amazing, Cole continues to impress me each time I see him, and of course, the depressing viewing of KoW, knowing it's the last time I'm going to see them in an ROH ring together.

People have raised lots of good points, and I’m glad it went down well with so many of you. I found it watchable, but my overall impression was of slight disappointment. The first match was average (positively so, just with all things considered like time, story etc), the second rather poor really; it seemed to come apart in the middle. More than anything though the production values were low, and I think that impacted on the quality of the matches for me, diverting away from the action at times and making the story a little hard to follow (in particular during the second match, contributing to the impression of dissolution).

On a good note, I was excited to see Nigel McGuiness there, which will hopefully become a permanent fixture, and it was a good idea showing clips of Best in the World and introducing other ROH wrestlers etc (though there was some repetition). On a last note it’s ok trying to take away interference and such things, but strip too much away and the entertainment goes with it. I think high match quality/good presentation is essential, in order to provide a unique selling point for ROH, which I felt was lacking this time. Still, we shall what next week brings.

I quite liked the show.

I know it might not be good for business in this day and age, but I can't help but like the old school feel to everything. In saying that, some of their interviews - Lethal's especially - were much more 'Reality' orientated, which is completely in keeping with current trends.

Kevin Kelly was borderline psychotic. His cutesy little voice, fixed grin and crazy eyes during the promos they played were just unnerving. They probably need to knock that on the head.

The two matches were good, nothing more, nothing less. My interest in the main event was fairly limited due to having seen it many times before and the Kings buggering off anyway. Shelton and Charlie were pretty bland, but then everyone except the Bravados seemed to be. The faces were just generic. It's a good job Cole and O'Reilly are good in the ring, otherwise I'd seriously just have a little nap every time I see or, especially, hear them. Perfect for a wrestling programme I suppose.

Nigel's return was good, but I still think the show lacked something big for its debut edition. I'm not quite sure what that could've been, but possibly something involving Steen or a debuting wrestler. Either way, it was enjoyable, and I'm sure it will improve once they get in the swing of things.
