I love ROH. Adam Cole is one of my absolute favorites, along with O'Reilly, Fish, Taven(whom I think is a well of untapped potential), Lethal, Jay White, Castle(who may be my main reason to watch), and the Briscoes and the Addiction. Punisher Martinez and Dijak as well
BECAUSE I'M THE MEMBER...AND I'M.....AWESOOOOOOME!!



Vintage Mr. Member, right there!

I just completed watching ROH: Supercard of Honor. What an amazing show. I had so much fun watching it. High quality wrestling and story telling.

Adam Cole needs to go to NXT soon. Also Marty Scurll as well.

Hey Fletch, get the FITE app and give ROH a try. When I got my new phone a week or 2 ago I put it on then, and just as I was gonna watch last week's NXT, I got a notification from the FITE app that ROH's new episode was up to watch for free. So on a whim I decide to give that a try instead and it opened up with Cody Rhodes starting to cut a promo in the ring in Chicago and getting attacked by Christopher Daniels.

Gotta admit something about it reminds me of 1995 WCW. Meaning while it's got a ways to go before it's great, it's not bad, like at all, and the familiarity with the people involved in the entire show helps generate some interest in me to keep watching.

Watching it though made me think of you and your interest in wanting something different. Well, MAYBE this is it, and maybe this is the time to finally give ROH a real shot.

I may have to find some time to start watching ROH too. Their in-ring action has always been pretty damn good. Plus now they have Marty Scurll and Will Ospreay haha.

Watched last weeks episode so I had a week of build up before I watch the most recent episode and thought the production had got much better with sound and picture quality.

It lagged a few times which nothing else such as E Network ever does for me and I didn't need to see so many matches interupted for New Japan and medical adverts.

The opening match had too much circus acrobatics. The opponent instead of attacking him at one point just stood here and let him flip back up and down HBK style about half a dozen times.

Bobby Fish lost. Not sure any wrestler should be called Fish.....

No sign of Cody Rhodes as the champion. Even if you don't have them wrestle your main champion should be on every show. E also have this problem......

See for me, no new promotion has ever grabbed me quite so quickly as when I started watching NXT for the first time and I saw the women's matches between Paige and Emma and then between Bayley and AJ Lee. They had a real early 90s Hitman, Henning, Owen feel to them. It was all about being on the mat with hold and counterhold and not so much about striking or throws, just chain wrestling, and that kept up all the way until Sasha, Becky and Charlotte were called up. Even a throw away 5-7 minute match had a lot of that and it was made interesting simply because I didn't know what moves they throw at each other next.

What I see in my first episode of ROH is the same kind of thing that drew me to watch Nitro when it first started. I see familiar faces some of whom I like, familiar names many of whom I've been interested in, and a bunch of people I don't know and they're a mixed bag ranging from "who the hell is this guy and why is he allowed on TV?" to "Who is this guy and why haven't I ever heard of him before?"

The video quality for me was great, and I had no issues with latency either. Aside from the high school gymnasium locale the show looked to be pretty top quality. And as I understand it WWE likes to work out deals with arenas where they (wwe) are the exclusive sports entertainment brand hosted by the arena so that no one else can work the same location. Hard to fault ROH there, WCW had the same issue. Aside from the Georgia Dome WCW had to really fight to get into big arenas and stadiums. That why they worked weird locations like beaches and on top of swimming pools and inside a mall. TBH I thought that was a part of WCW's charm, because their locations we're really cool some times.
