I went to two ROH events last weekend. I had something to say about them for Vegas Seven. If you’re not a wrestling fan or don’t follow ROH, this might give you an idea of what you’re missing:
And this—the action in the ring—is where ROH really excels. The opening tilt, a four-corners survival match to determine the No. 1 contender for the ROH television title, is a good example. The match showed the best of what ROH has to offer: power moves, quick pacing, and high-flying acrobatics. It’s one thing to see Donovan Dijak, billed at 6 foot 7 inches and weighing in at 270 pounds, catch the diminutive Lio Rush mid-move and hurl him to the ground; it’s another to see the big man himself take to the air, diving out of the ring. That move was enough to garner the first “holy shit” chant of the night.
I really can’t say enough about this. I actually could have written twice as much and still not covered everything. Hopefully I will write more about this is the future.
