love the briscoes forever...this heel version is awesome.
Yerr! Jay Briscoe out here with the black and white bunting and the stringy 90s haircut looking like 2014 AJ Styles. Jay bout to get that main event heat--let's do this.

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

This show sounds horrendous, even by meaningless house show standards. weak show on paper...the good thing was martinez winning sotf Thelone and mafia on the same wavelength automatically blesses your timeline. Show looks yeesh , but I'm willing to keep my tongue tied down if ROH really feels confi...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Different definitions on those things, I guess. I understand that "filler" often connotes negative things (a criticism used a lot on long-running graphic fiction and television), but it's as healthy and expected an aspect of wrestling as squash matches. You can do lots of things with them: give unde...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

It wasn't filler , it was a Big House un Dallas in Cody's last title defense Before final battle and the last match between them. They wanted to make it a great and memorable match and that's what they do. I don't have a problem with that. How else could you describe a match that was announced less...

Dammit. I still love those problematic Sandy Fork boys more than I know I ought to. Briscoes better get into something fierce and foolish next year.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Daniels has every right to go through fire as everyone else does in saying that going through fire on a filler title defense is super dumb . I know Daniels loves giving to the business, but doing things like this and going through hell and back at last year's Ladder War are just too much. I think we...

Is there any way to currently access http://rohworld.com/ from the forum? I know it was possible in an earlier design. Maybe a pathway can be included in the next update?

Re: WWN/EVOLVE Thread

My favorite match from Evolve this year, Zack Sabre Jr. defends against Jaka: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVQX489FV8E For context, tag wrestler Jaka addresses Queens audience's doubts about him being a credible threat to Sabre. Perceived "filler" title defense elevates into a defense with heated...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

ROH has averaged 1150 in 2017 so far according to Lavie who keeps track of this stuff for us With an average attendance like that, ROH can afford to take the occasional hit like in Oklahoma City. Punishment was probably the best person they could choose on their entire roster. I'm really glad how m...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

I know hindsight and all, but if you're going to do a fire spot, wear the right clothing and protect yourself. The reports seem to make it that the entire match was strongly built, and then had this really unique, and consequential, crescendo. Kudos to the work put in, though, more importantly, plea...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I would be more inclined to agree if we just didn't have that black hole Bully/Briscoes program. The whole promotion already skews so much more older that I feel it's best to just have him independent of any programs, and to promote him in co-main event marquee matches.

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

Speaking of Champions vs. All Stars, do you think we'll see another while the six-man belts are in play? That's a good point. I hadn't thought of that as an issue. Personally, I'd be all for trying a big long, seven-on-seven Champions vs. All-Stars match to see how it goes. It's definitely the sort...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

PWG is just a thing that Super Dragon and Excalibur use to stay active in wrestling and hang around with their friends. In all honesty, its "momentum" that it apparently had a couple years ago has been slowly falling off and I think it will most likely continue to do so in the future. This is eeril...

It would actually be a really good idea to do Champions versus All Stars during a NJPW tour considering how weak the undercard usually is for that show.

Re: APP/STREAMING SERVICE COMNG IN EARLY 2018

Of course the availability of a streaming/library platform is about the biggest change ROH can make short of new creative or management. I'm not surprised that ROH isn't breaking pattern in being reluctant to give news about something that is set to launch within the next few months. Still, I do hav...

Watched the first season. It was fine. (I tend to struggle with continuing television shows after season breaks.) I'm glad that a promotion like Lucha Underground exists.

Vinnie Lasagna (where are you Brada?) has got to drop the ax as an intimidation prop. It's fucking dumb. I hate it. It's defies any and all believability.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Finally--the pro-populism thread we've all been waiting for-- I didn't place a value judgment on it. I was just pointing it out because it was implied that Bullet Club was insulating ROH from the financial consequences of poor booking. I'm saying that, good or bad, we don't know what kind of financ...
