    I thought it was ****1/2 stars myself. It's quite a polarizing match though, from what I've seen written on the internet... like, the type of people who find Eddie and Roddy bland are going to find a 45 minute match between the two a total snoozefest. I've read a few thoughts on the PPV over at DVDVR and many people skipped the match altogether.

    Oh, my bad, I mistook Eddie for Davey. I love Roddy and Eddie, I don't see why some people hate on them so much. Especially Roddy, he gets a lot of hate when in the ring he absolutely amazing and not too terrible on the mic. I seemed to be the only one who didn't mind him having the title

    Same here, but I'm a massive Roddy mark.

    Someone on another forum called him the modern day Dean Malenko, which is probably the most perfect wrestling comparison of all time - sums up why I mark so hard for his in-ring work, but also why some smarks (esp. ones that place far too much importance on "mic skills" and storylines over workrate and shit) would find him bland as fuck....

    ....although I posit that the frequent "bland" accusations thrown towards many ROH wrestlers has more to do with those people confusing lack of charisma with the athletic competition/American puroresu/serious/etc image that Ring of Honor itself tries to convey. (For example, Adam Cole of Futureshock is MASSIVELY OVER as a heel in CZW, where he simply oozes charisma. You wouldn't think it from his ROH promos.)

    ROH tries to show itself as a sport, and therefore the charisma is lacking a little, but the matches more than make up for it

    Just finished watching Episode 2 which I downloaded from XWT, and the Television title match between El Generico and Jay Lethal was very impressive, especially the last few minutes.

    Watch that match here (part 2) while you still can.

    There was also Jimmy Jacobs vs. Mike Bennett on the show, which wasn't as boring as I thought it would be. P1 and P2, if you want) Still quite a bit of interview/recap/advertising segments on the first half of the episode.


    Davey Richards defends his title against Roderick Strong next week, which I guarantee takes up the entire episode.

    It will probably get less as the weeks move on, they are probably doing it for new viewers. I'd say the second batch (ep 5 onwards) will have a lot less

    I'm actually glad Leathal won. It allows Generico to move up and feud with main event level talent, which is where he deserves to be at. TV title should be for second tier talent, like Leathal, Bennett, Ciampa ect.
