Ring of Honor TV 3/24 Review

We’ve waited many weeks…painstakingly…suffering from dreadful impatience. Things have been building, and we have not seen any resolve, but the moment seems to be just over the horizon as we finally get another one of ROH’s iPPVs. What? Oh, that’s right, the 10th Anniversary Show was only a month ago. It seems so short a span of time when there are usually only 4 or 5 PPVs the whole year. Not to mention with Best … Read entire article »

In this video wire a few of the wrestlers set to appear at Showdown in the Sun on March 31st hype their bouts. I was surprised to hear Michael Elgin receive so much mic time. Usually Truth Martini is the one who does the majority of the talking, but they really let Elgin go here. He wasn’t bad, it just seems to work better when Truth does most of the talking backstage and Elgin does …

Due to the tape delay of ROH TV and various other factors, this week is the OFFICIAL post-10th Anniversary Show. Kind of odd since the last episode could have easily had mentions edited in through video packages and what-not, but that is just nit-picking. Am I telling you not to watch the episode? Hell no, it’s still worth your viewing…at least, I think it is. ROH hasn’t been failing on their show as of late, …

Things are starting to heat up now, and it’s not because of the Triple Threat World Title match…not directly, anyway. ROH does have a knack for innovation, and their newest “Blind Destiny” concept keeps that idea alive. Not only does it determine a challenger for the champion, but it sets up three separate matches for Day 2 of Showdown in the Sun, and we have no idea(other than through speculation) which one will be the …

In one more day, we will see if Ring of Honor can pull off a great Anniversary Show with an underwhelming card, and whether a main event void of a World Title match is the route to go. That’s what I would be saying if I wasn’t late on typing this up. Thankfully, the 10th Anniversary was a success on a quality-level, and this episode really wasn’t needed to make the experience any better. Does …

This is Ring of Honor’s 10th Anniversary, and with that being said, I want to congratulate everybody who has ever been involved with ROH for giving us (the wrestling fans) so many super rad memories. Sure some years have been more interesting than others, but what wrestling promotion doesn’t have that? When you’re an independent company for the better part of 10 years, it is going to be a bit of a roller coaster ride. …

Last week, ROH made me realize that my complaints had been answered on the point of compelling plot developments on the TV show. Well, perhaps they haven’t been necessarily answered, but they have been addressed, and the issue has been worked on since they returned from the post-Final Battle break. The biggest problem I am foreseeing is the major story arc of last week not being developed this week(i.e. Haas’ attack on the Briscoes) in …

I quickly fell into a loving relationship with ROH, and when I heard they would be getting a National TV deal, you can bet I, like almost everyone else, was excited. While getting on TV is a big step in itself, ROH has to go the rest of the way by making their weekly show something enthralling that people who aren’t accustomed to ROH are going to enjoy. Dayton already touched upon this a little …

Another episode of Raw that lacked wrestling, so I turn to ROH in hope of filling that void. Now, Ring of Honor has declared the main event of the 10th Anniversary will be Davey and O’Reilly versus Edwards and Cole? Not stoked to hear that is the main event. Will I order the show? No doubt about it, but couldn’t they put together a better main event than that? I think so. I want ROH …

I expect a lot from Ring of Honor, and most of time I’m not disappointed, but lately their TV show has become predictable. Yes, the wrestling is good and (of course) that is the most important thing, but there is a but. When you start to dive into the characters and stories though… That’s where I feel it can improve. Anyways, after a crappy episode of Raw I am definitely in the mood for some …
