    I can dig that for sure. Williams vs Lethal would be all kinds of awesome.

    Im aiming for Lethal vs Yehi in Block A and Gresham vs Deppen.

    Josh Woods is a great wrestler and hes got his character work as well.

    I hope we dont get Lethal vs Gresham in the Finals. not that it wouldnt be great..its just already been done.

    id be ok if it ends up being Tracy vs Gresham or Yehi vs Gresham

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    I was wondering if the tournament was gonna be on TV so that's good. I'll watch, but how long depends on how well they handle the empty arena.

    Yeah the episode will be on their website on Monday(if you have honor club). I don't have a tv channel that plays it. Ill be watching Monday.

    I take it you hate the empty arena vibe?

    Id rather that then the thunder dome. But id be perfectly fine with workers, employees in attendance to.

    Apparently from reviews, this show was awesome and the format was well done with sit down interviews explaining the wrestlers climb to being pro wrestlers etc etc. both matches delivered. cant wait to watch it.

    Also new theme, opening and the show played the tournament off like a huge deal and presented it like a sport

    Honestly why in God's name would they air this on the same night as Raw, even if they aren't concurrent? I mean Raw is rapidly losing popularity but it's still the biggest show around and ROH isn't exactly on a hot streak.

    It starts at 7...before RAW.

    Whats the big deal? Its also not live and played on sinclair broadcasting over the weekend. This is just the tv episode becoming available on their website for those who don't have a channel to watch it on.

    You most likely got more wrestling per hour on ROHs show anyway.

    I acknowledged it wasn't on at the same time already. I just don't really get the thinking behind airing it on this particular day but I guess it isn't that consequential anyways. At this point, I doubt that many people are just casually watching ROH so their fans I'm sure are happy to have it available.

    I hope you enjoy it like i did.

    I imagine they released at 7 on Monday because Monday is wrestling night. If potential fans checked it out and watched Gresham vs Yuta right before RAW, they wont all ready be burned out on wrestling. And hopefully they enjoy the match

    Yep, matches were awesome as expected. No surprises with the outcomes at this stage. I might have actually preferred Castle/Lethal a bit, though some of the counters and holds Gresham and Yuta were exchanging were beautiful. Definitely won't be surprised if Yuta is brought back on a regular basis after this showing. Looking forward to seeing what the rest of this tourney has to offer.

    Awesome!!!!

    Yeah Yuta vs Gresham was sick!!!. I love Lethal but cant stand Castle. Im happy with the winners , though as you said , expected. ROH meeds to bring Yuta back. Hes tailor made for the company if they go forward with more catch wrestling

    Next week:

    Sydal vs Delirious
    Rocky Romero vs David Finlay

    Sydal im sure wins and i have no clue about Romero vs Finlay.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    I'm all in on this presentation for a TV show. Love the sitdown interviews, they might get a bit samey and a bit circle jerking of PURE RULES = REAL WRESTLING, but for someone like Yuta it really helped me learn a bit more about him. I can't put my finger on it too, but the audio for an empty arena is so much better here from ROH than it is for say Impact where there's also nobody allowed at ringside. I'm also a fan of the timer and amount of ring breaks left always being on screen during the match. Big thumbs up for the presentation.

    I really liked Gresham/Yuta, it's nothing must see but it's a really good TV match and I loved the aggression of the knee smash finish.

    When I saw the brackets I figured it's a Lethal/Gresham final, but then they acknowledged that in Lethal's interview so maybe that's a bit too obvious now.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    Decided to watch for my boi Fred Yehi. Enjoyed the first show & really dug the format of it, it was an extremely breezy watch and both matches were really satisfying. Loved endings like the one in Gresham/Yuta where it feels natural as opposed to shoe-horned in a la the Lethal Injection finish earlier. Going to cross my fingers Yehi is able to win at least one match and I'll be happy with any of Yehi/Gresham/Williams winning this one. While I dug Yuta, he didnt win me over much beyond thinking he's a solid wrestler but I dug his role in this match and the story they told. Dont care much for Castle or Lethal either so was a bit less invested in that.

    Looking forward to next week but mostly just want me some Yehi.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    You know... a Delirious sit down interview in character would be pretty funny.

    Ill echo Jon here. Yehi has to move forward in the tournament. I believe hes facing off with Silas Young. I have no issue with Silas coming up short. Silas doesnt need this tournament and doesnt fit the role of pure wrestler( even though hes quite capable). His tag team with Josh Woods is already over with the fans...i mean how can anyone not love the name 2 guys, 1 tag.

    The time limits extend every round as well. Id love to see Yehi vs Gresham.for 20 minutes.

    I also have a feeling Tracey beats Lethal, if they meet up, to go to the finals. Gresham vs Williams is the match i think ROH should go for. They have a long history and the story writes it self.

    All in All im happy ROH took the time off. THey treated pandemic seriously and used the time wisely. It feels a bit like a restart. Theres way more content on their website as well.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    Thought that the show flew by, didn't feel like 50 mins at all. Loved the finish to Gresham/Yuta and also appreciated the intro vids beforehand to get to know Yuta better. When he mentioned he was trained by Gulak & Hot Sauce, I immediately went to find out who he was in CHIKARA

    Liked how there were enough differences in the first two matches stylistically to show this isn't gonna be a rinse and repeat sort of tournament. All in all, good stuff and a welcome return for ROH.

    BTW, pretty weird that between this and the British Rounds tournament NXT UK will be running that we suddenly have all this more "technical" wrestling popping up. No complaints, a nice change of pace.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    Really enjoyed the second episode in the Pure Title Tournament. Both matches were really different and they used the ropes in different ways.

    Finlay vs Romero was a bit better than ok. Im happy with the outcome.

    Delirious interview with subtitles was awesome. His match vs Sydal was really great!!!

    Sydals theme song is garbage. Worst theme i have ever heard.
