ROH Pure Title Tournament

Went ahead and got a month of Honor Club to check this out. I'm two episodes into it, and I'm really liking it a lot. I don't know if it's their new overall style, or just for the tournament, but they've switched to a pure sports presentation. Sit down promos where the wrestlers comment on their history and their opponent in a similar vein to MMA and Boxing.

Because of the limited rope break ruleset, the wrestling is centered around submissions, mat based technical wrestling and working over body parts. I've seen 4 matches and so far it's never slowed down too much, and there hasn't been any other 90 mile an hour shit. It's all been a nice even pace.

Commentary is fantastic. Ian Riccaboni has a sportscaster cadence that obviously fits the presentation really well, and Caprice Coleman does a good job of chiming in with the perspective of an in ring competitor.

I would reccomend anyone looking for something a little different to check this out. Or if you just like technical/submission style stuff.

I remember the Pure title from the early days of ROH back when I used to watch it a lot.

The Pure style might just be for this tournament only but supposedly ROH is currently working on major plans to overhaul their shows and production by the end of this year to early next year.

According to Fightful, had it not been for the coronavirus outbreak, they were planning on enacting these major changes earlier in the year.

ROH should definitely keep the PURE rules as their permanent rules, it gives them such a unique feel as a company.
