Never change, Joe.
The wrestling isn't nearly as good (at least up & down the card), the roster isn't nearly as deep, but I'd say the booking/storytelling is just as good (and probably better), but in a different way.supersonic wrote:You two must hate the WM14 main event swerve.
Is Progress the closest thing currently to golden age ROH for booking, storytelling, and roster depth?
Of course it matters, I have my gripes like everyone else, it just doesn't matter as much in the context of the bigger picture. He's an excellent top program booker who uses his undercard to slowly build guys up while not giving anything away. He's not a great booker in terms of exciting cards top to bottom or intricate mid card title programs. At the end of the day, if I'm analyzing business I'll take the guy who create stars and books money programs over the guy who books top to bottom in a more compelling fashion. If business doesn't matter to you, you'll take the opposite. We like to break down both.EvanDeadlySins wrote:Disagree on the minor stuff "doesn't matter" stuff with regard to Gedo's often questionable booking of undercard things. A truly elite booker makes everything as good as it can be because everything matters. I don't watch Dragon Gate, but I've heard that the person who books it is pretty much Japan's most intricate and subtle booker at all levels of the card. That's what I think is what separates excellent from very good.
I 100% agree. Cooper had always been a character guy and in this match he worked his ass off.Joe Lanza wrote:I think what was so exciting about TK Cooper's performance is that he finally matched the ring work with the character work, which has always been top level. He was just so damn great in that match.
