Ring of Honor Rant
Nick covers a rant that was posted by OWW Radio Producer Scott NDX on the Online World of Wrestling forum OWW Genesis titled “ROH, You Anger Me”, below is a transcript of the post

“I am tired of ROH giving us the same matches on the same shows in the same city.

Where does this stem from? Final Battle 2008 saw Tyler Black wrestle Austin Aries. Final Battle 2009 saw Tyler Black challenge Austin Aries for the world title in an hour long (and poorly paced) time limit draw. In between those 2 shows, ROH gave us, twice, Aries vs. Black in some fashion, be it a triple threat title match or a ridiculously booked tag elimination. And how does ROH switch it up for the 8th anniversary show? They don’t. Instead, they give us Aries vs. Black.

Again.

Look, I like Aries. I think he’s a great champion. I like Black. He’s an up and comer and has a bright future ahead of him. But I am tired of spending my money and seeing the same matches over and over again. I expect there to be some variety. Not 4 shows in the span of year to have them wrestle each other in some fashion.

People have been complaining about WWE having the same main event over and over and over. Well, for me, here in NYC, where these matches are taking place, I feel like the repetition is hurting the product.

In the time I’ve seen 4 Aries/Black matches, I’ve seen 3 Kenny Omega vs. Claudio Castagnoli matches.

Why, ROH? Why do you keep booking the same matches in the same cities? Why can’t we get some variety into the shows?

When I first started watching ROH live, I got to see some amazing matches and a large variety in them. They were different, felt special. And when there was a time for a rematch in the same city, having a decent amount of time between the wrestlers facing off made it more special.

Right now, ROH seems to be stagnant. At least here, in NYC, at their live shows. I just don’t want to see the same matches show after show when the ticket prices keep rising and the quality of the shows are not getting better.”

Nick asks if Desmond Wolfe/Nigel McGuinness and Bryan Danielson are to blame for ROH’s repetitive matches

Match of the Week

Aaron Kendrick reverted back to the previous week during the Monday Night War to name his match of the week
Aaron declared AJ Styles/Kurt Angle from TNA Impact as the MOTW
Aaron explained the reasons behind his choice citing that both wrestlers being established with different wrestling styles
Aaron spoke of the patience that was put behind both AJ and Kurt’s build up before letting them go at it in the ring
Aaron was grateful that the match wasn’t totally butchered by an out of place run in
Nick acknowledged the Knockout Tag Team Title Match between Sarita, Taylor Wilde and Awesome Kong, Hamada as his personal choice for Match of the Week
Nick recognized the old school feeling, philosophy and tag team psychology which hadn’t been portrayed in wrestling in a long time before the Knockouts Tag Team Title Match on Impact came along

Caller
Chris Kelly from England: Chris disagreed with Aaron’s choice for match of the week arguing that there were too many ankle locks and style clashes. Chris called it a copycat of the HBK/Undertaker match structure from WrestleMania 25. Chris called the Angle slam the most pointless finishing move in professional wrestling, Chris called the Angle slam just another suplex and the ankle lock just another submission .

COMMERCIAL

Email
Nick read out an email sent in by a listener named Shane who wrote in to agree with Nick’s rant from the previous week about how the current generation of fans are uneducated and show no appreciation for old school wrestling and the art of wrestling psychology. Shane went on to talk about his early years as a fan growing up in the 80’s and that he has recently taken the time to watch wrestling footage from the 1970s to gain a better understanding for wrestling during an era that predated his wrestling viewing.
