Default Best Wrestling Promotion?

I used the search and didn't see other threads.

I started watching wrestling when Lesnar, Angle, and Big Show were main eventing Vengeance (started watching a few weeks before? If memory serves correctly) Everything was great to me in that era, I was also a lot younger. But the talent across the board was better than Todays product (probably due to booking). I quit watching before Cena became WWE Champion (but Cena was definitely a favorite character of mine)

I then started watching wrestling recently (4 months ago) and was pretty pleased with the problem. Then...it's been 4 months and I already quit watching Raw weekly and just catch it when I'm in the mood for it. It got moderately interesting lately - but not as engaging as I'd like to be. I'll probably tune into Royal Rumble - and depending on what happens (Rock vs Cena 2 at WM seems inevitable)

Bottom line - Which Wrestling promotion would you recommend someone? Someone who does like storylines (weather it's a Professional Sports feel or a Drama Show feel), great matches (10 minutes+ of two guys / women leaving it all in the ring), and Championships that mean something when you win it and is tough to defend. Recommend ANY Promotion you can, but, anything that fits that criteria is gold to me.

Promotions I've tried -

ROH (Their website buffering problems have irritated me to the point of just flat out saying "no" and after all the hype I read from researching the show because of Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Samoa Joe and other various wrestlers it just didn't seem as electricfying. However, I'd like to give it a chance once their buffering issue gets fixed.)

TNA (Just can't get into it, I tried and forced myself to - just cannot get into it.)

As you can see, I'm not experienced with Promotions. So any help would be awesome. Thanks for reading and thanks for the help

I'm telling you, ROH is putting on the best matches in the U.S and New Japan Pro Wrestling is probably the best out there today if you're looking for quality. I've been catching up with NJPW lately and I'm very impressed at what I've seen and ROH has always remained awesome in my book so you really can't go wrong with either. I do still enjoy the WWE once in a while too, but I'm more into just the WWE PPV's more so than the weekly shows which I rarely watch.

If you couldn't tell by my signature, I only follow WWE, ROH, and NJPW.

I'm actually watching (NJPW WRESTLE KINGDOM 7) 5 hours of wrestling? Jeeeeeeeeeeze.


WWE PPV's still deliver. NJPW became a show I'd like to watch whenever it's on.

ROH I would LOVE to watch and actually really enjoyed the last episode - but the buffering issues are really frustrating to the point where it's unwatchable. I know it's not on my end because I'm watching Wrestle Kingdom with no problem. Serious thanks for your input!

PWG and CHIKARA put on a much better product than ROH and have been doing for the past three/four years.

New Japan and PWG to start off with. ROH 05-08 is pretty essential too but I wouldn't bother with the current product because there's so much more stuff out there you should be watching first.

Without wishing to sound like a broken record.... NJPW is by far the best wrestling promotion anywhere, while PWG & Chikara are both brilliant - just incredibly easy & fun to watch. ROH is really stale & boring, well past its prime now.

My favorite is CMLL. NJPW is probably the best today. I also really enjoy PWG and CHIKARA.

Not to mention most of the top ROH guys work PWG and consistently have better matches there.

I need to really start watching CMLL and NJPW stuff.
