Now that DOES turn me off from RoH.

Their matches are ass-backwards, you'll see Davey Richards (I have to use him in every example, he's THAT bad...) no-sell a Tombstone off the top rope, and kick out at 1 from a shotgun fired at him from point plank range, but lose from a superkick.

All matches come at an hour long as standard, but you won't be able to last that long due to the overbearing sound of fat virgins squealing "THIS IS RASSLIN" *clap clap clap clap clap*.

Be prepared for massive amounts of cheese in their backstage promos too. Kevin Steen tries so bad to look like a hard guy and fails massively. Looks like the token fat kid bully you get in most 80s adventure films, but straining for a shit with his big obese cheeks flapping around like a retarded bulldog.

I,m glad I made you all responding, and I enjoy all the comments very much.

I proposed ROH title as No 3. since they have all that TV coverage and financial backup, although they are obviously loosing money in the live shows - less than 1000 average in US and little more in Toronto.

I agree that they need little storilines and little gimmick, after all - that,s what pro wrestling is all about.

I also don,t have patience to watch 45 minute match, but that brings me to something else.

The same crew as ROH is always running those PW Guerilla shows in LA, and they produce those 5-6 minutes videos on Youtube, with hard knocks and good music.

In my oppinion, those videos are best wrestling there is, even with some storylines made on the spot, good crowd reaction and good chain wrestling.


Still real to me dammit !

PW Guerilla is terrible. The fat pasty guy from one of the last few Gut Checks (Adam Pierce? His nickname was "Iron" lol) and Joey Ryan are headliners.

He's called "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce. Although more recently he's been using "Scrap Daddy." Has he even worked in PWF since 2004-05? He's more a regular with Championship Wrestling from Hollywood.

Joey Ryan was a co-founder of the company and might still be one of the owners. Joey Ryan is also a regular with CWHollywood.

More than half of the PWG roster are also in ROH. So that should explain a lot.

PWG was the only good indy, I even bought a 'best of' DVD.

Ask BFP or Edgehead about Human Tornado, Chris Bosh or Joey Ryan. They had fun characters and didn't take themselves seriously like ROP.

They had good spotmonkeys like Ted Hart and Pac (now Adie Neville in nXt)

Chris Bosh wrestles for PWG? Ok never mind, I need to get this footage.

Did D-Wade make an appearance?

Except that Evan Bourne ruined it by overselling.

Perhaps I should post PW Guerilla topic instead of ROH, but I see that most of you guys got the point.

For those not appearing in ROH (at least not regularely) - I would call them mmmm... lets say: California mainstays, I would point some names without Adam Pearce. I mean he,s OK but not great.

As for great wrestlers, there are:

Willie Mack, who moves that fat ass with the lightning speed,

Rockness Monster: Johnny Yuma and Goodtime, who do lots of highspots and look great with those beards and sunglasses

and those Gangsta dudes, what,s their names: B- Boy and Famous B (too much bees, one should drop it) who are well skilled in the ring.

Beside others, these are guys who have a gimmick that is not silly and good ring entrance, and offcourse put on great in ring show, so they don,t need storylines - for them storylines are written on the spot by themselfs, and are very fun to watch.
