Ring of Honor Debuts on National Television and I Couldn’t Be More Excited
I've never been shy about my interest in pro wrestling. Now my favorite wrestling company is finally debuting on national television.
Pro wrestling is something you "get" or "don't get." I understand that a lot of people don't find the interest in the athletic scripted performance. Some don't like the storylines, plotting nature, or find it lacking excitement. Just know, there is a lot more out there than what WWE has to offer.
Even for longtime fans, WWE can get tiring. Having watched the product for my entire life, there have been points where I've disconnected for small windows of time. What I found that helps keep interest is by finding alternatives.
And my favorite alternative has finally found itself on national television.
Ring of Honor Wrestling is what saved me as a wrestling fan. Without it, I would have faded out of the wrestling scene back in 2002. Ring of Honor (ROH) focuses more on the "wrestling" over the storylines. Since their inception, ROH has taken some of the best wrestlers in the entire world and showcased them.
Guys like Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, CM Punk, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins, Austin Aries, The American Wolves, Nigel McGunniess, and Colt Caba have all performed in ROH prior to their stints in WWE or TNA. ROH provided a path for these guys to wrestle and perform. Today guys like Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, Bobby Fish, Jay Lethal, Jay Briscoe, Michael Elgin, and Roderick Strong are providing the charge to the future.
ROH has locked in a deal with Destination America to broadcast their syndicated television show nationally through the rest of the year. Each week ROH will air at 7:00 on Wednesday nights. The show runs for one hour. Destination America is available through cable and satellite in this area.
If you are a wrestling fan, take the hour and give it a shot. I highly recommend it. You might even thank me later. Me? I'll be watching for sure.
