Is the ROH promotion the best American option for the style of match put on by Sabin, Kazarian, Red, etc. I'm guessing so, since several of those guys work there also, but I was curious if anyone has any less-well known recommendations. Along those lines, which Japanese promotion offers the most similar product? I've heard good things about Toryumon. Any other suggestions? I'm going to end up buying tapes, so I want to make sure that I'm getting into the right thing.

Thanks for the advice.

Well, I'm a big fan of the X Division type guys, and I have enjoyed all of the ROH that I have seen. Sometimes they work a more mat-based style, but there's enough flying around to satisfy anyone I would think. The only two problems with ROH are 1) the camera work will sometimes leave you feeling ill, and 2) you'll spend a lot of cash because it's quite addictive I find.



and maybe I should open up my sensitive side/but really, the sensitive side sucks./I've been there./You can only imagine the kinds of sweaters they make you wear.

The camera work is horrible in ROH but the wrestling is Amazing. If you enjoy a more polished product I say stick with TNA but most ROH tapes have at least 3 amazing matches.

Toryumon isn't anything like ROH. However, if you're looking mostly for fast-paced wrestling I'd suggest going with Toryumon.

The following shows are recommended:

T2P vs. Toryumon (9/8/02)
VamoAmi #44 (Yossino vs. K-Ness - Toryumon's Singles MOTY)
El Numero Uno 2003 PPV (4/22/03)
5th Anniversary Show PPV (6/29/03)

I've heard some good things about Osaka Pro as well, but unfortunately haven't seen a show. Word is Michinoku Pro is pretty crappy these days, but try to find some of their earlier stuff. Also, pick up some lucha if you really want all that hurricanrana, rope-running craziness. I personally think ROH is a bit overrated. Once you get past the Dragons and Low Kis on the roster they really don't have much.

Yossino's first Toryumon recommendation should rock thine world.

I like them both. You probably want to get some older Ring Of Honor so you can catch some Spanky. Styles still wrestles there, London is very good (leaving), the Briscoes are indy good and don't mind dying, and Chris Daniels of course is Chris Daniels. They also have the Christopher Street Connection who are awesomely awesome.

I'd go for ROH over TNA just for much less bullshit.

Those are all excellent suggestions. Thanks for referencing specific shows, also. I'll definitely pursue some ROH material, and I'll probably go with something a tad older. I probably should verify what I know, or think I know, about Toryumon. I got the impression that it was primarily cruisers, and that the wrestlers are gimmick-heavy, unlike other Japanese feds. Now, I don't know if the style is high-flier or more mat-based. I don't really mind as long as the matches keep moving.


I should also ask this-Is RFVideo still the place for tapes? Can you buy ROH from anyone else? Please let me know where you've bought your tapes from and have been pleased with price and quality.

I was searching off E-bay yesterday, saw some ROH for a decent price. That my favorite place for tapes, got 16 hours of midsouth wrestling for like 7 bucks right before christmas.

If you want the cash to actually go to the people who run and fund ROH, then buy your ROH stuff from RF Video. If you have no moral qualms about bootlegs, then go anywhere on the net :)
