ROH Januray 26

Discussion in 'International Wrestling' started by Stopspot, Feb 2, 2013.

  1. Decided to try and get back into ROH after the Cornette fiasco (the booking, nothing against the talent of the ring content but the stories except for a few were really bad under him) so I decided to watch last weeks episode. Here are some of my notes on it.

    - First thing I noted is that they have updated their graphical style. Nice this looks much cleaner and pro.
    - Nice that they are giving an end to the "Steen refuses to wrestle Lethal" debacle.
    - Haas is an asshole :lol1: Poor kid.
    - Tag team roundtable match next week? Nice way to determine number 1 contenders.
    - I like the look of all the new ROH belts.
    - Top prospect tournament is interesting. Let's see if they can find some good talent from it.
    - Hardy needs cardio, badly.
    - Cole is always a joy to watch, and Whitmer is a beast.

    Overall ROH's got my interest again. Let's see if they can keep it up.

    Do any of you other ROH fans have any particular opinion on the product right now?
  2. Definitely in a transitional period. There's no real identity right now. Steen as champ is awesome but I don't see any real contenders At the moment. I always figured he'd drop it to Generico and they'd trade it a few times, but that's obviously not going to happen. They've got to take a few risks, maybe bring in a couple of Japanese or Mexican talents, to liven up the product so they can get back on track.
  3. Yeah it's like McGuinness said, transitional period. And one of their potential top stars in Adam Cole is possibly WWE bound since he is at the try outs right now so that's one name less that could pick up the torch. They need to build some talent that can stay and build the place up again. As well as find a direction for it.
  4. They could also try the Canadian and Minnesotan indies. There's always seems to be great talent from those areas. Bringing in Hart-Smith wouldn't be a bad idea either.
  5. I just watched the past episode. I will get back into it since we have some users that are going to follow it. As for the show, I thought it was Okay. I wasn't jumping out of my chair for it but considering the last time I watched it was almost unbearable, it's a good sign. Next show tomorrow right guys? Probably won't be any links? Whenever you guys come across it @tag me that way I can watch it asap and without any spoilers.
