Okay, just found out that Directv added HDNet to my package of channels, so I DVRd the latest episode of ROH.
I was wondering, if anybody else saw the show could tell me, is this the type of show that's normally produced? It reminded me a LOT of old school wrestling I grew up watching. Plus, I gotta admit to being a Jim Cornette mark, so I loved seeing him on TV.
It was a bit heavier on the "ads" for the upcoming iPPV as well as montages from the previous NYC house show but you saw a fairly typical ROH on HDNet episode.
Because there's such a lag time between taping and airing, later episodes in the taping cycle sometimes get some weird editing (having to take out intros because people have belts they've since lost, for example) but all in all I like watching it.
They're pre-empted next week for a Memorial Day concert marathon (I think) but will be back in two weeks.
In ring action is pretty much second to none. It's promos where it comes across a little Bush League. But this is the show that I watch to get a few 8-10 minute matches and a (usually solid) 20 minute main event. Sort of like old NWA shows.
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
like you said, it only works as a face fighting back move. the only one imo who could use it and make it look good is Shelton Benjamin. His offence is variable enough to not make it look like a standard spot.
