I could not agree with you more. These whack ass chants need to stop. It's lame live and it's lame on DVD. Just stop it already...please.
Well as a guy who kicks off his fair share of chants and enjoys being vocal at PWG shows, I'd like to weigh in on this. When I make the trek from San Diego to Reseda every few months to support Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, I go in with the intent to have fun, let loose, enjoy some drinks and be a loud supportive fan. I realize that not everybody is like that. But the last thing I want to do is pay my hard earned money to sit on my hands or offer up golf claps like I'm watching the PGA. Fuck that, I'm going to let off some steam and let all these guys know how good of a time I'm having and how much I appreciate their work. If some of the chants seem redundant to you, I'm sorry. But I'd rather say "WRESTLING!" and possibly get a few people to respond in kind than to just sit there watching in silence. However I will try to not beat things like that in to the ground from now on. I realize sometimes that after the 3rd or 4th pitcher of beer, common sense can go out the window. And I may be guilty of repeating certain things a bit excessively from time to time, which can be annoying. I'll work on it. And before I continue let me say that I would NEVER chant "Boring" at a PWG show. I have the upmost respect for everybody that gets in that ring and I am only there to be 100% positive!
The "ROH" chant was just a dumb mistake that I won't make again. But it was not done with the intention to disrespect PWG or any of the fans at all. I only did it during the Eddie Edwards vs Alex Shelley match out of respect to Edwards for reaching the pinnacle of becoming Ring Of Honor Champion. I thought it was coming from a good place, but I deserved being called out on that one.
So again, I'm sorry to the people that don't like us loud bastards. But just understand, it totally comes from a place of love and respect for PWG. And sure, I may see myself occasionally on dvd hoisting my drink in the air every five seconds or banging the mat like an idiot and realize I look like a dumbass. But then I think about how much friggin' fun I was having and it's all worth it!
