Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread
I am a lucha guy but Ring of Honor has the best weekly tv show in the business right now. And they only need 1 hour.
It started off slow and for awhile I didn't either care about the show but business pick up in February and everything started to click. ROH have some pretty strong characters from Ciampa,Steen,Briscoes,Elgin,Bennett,Charlie Haas been on fire in my opinion he would make a great solo guy.
Jim Cornette once again proves he is the best tv head booker/creative writer in the last 20 years. You can say Heyman or Pena are better but from a "strictly" weekly episodic perspective he has been the best. This is his 5th stop, SMW was great as a tv show. He had his up and downs in the WWE but he help WWF find a path in 1996 to build towards the future. OVW under Cornette was their best years and groom so many superstars like Brock,Cena,Orton,Batista,etc. In TNA, he tried and for awhile he made freaking Matt Morgan and Hernandez look credible but Dixie chose Russo over him. And now in ROH with full control, it started off slow but you starting to see good to great matches every week,good promos, good storytelling, more guys being built into "TV" characters. I don't think Gabe would of done a better job with TV.
