Re: Official Death Before Dishonor (Las Vegas 9/22) Thread

Reading the results, it seems like almost all the right calls were made. The story-driven format of this show as reminds of Takeover events. There were limited undercard star exhibition matches, a bevy of coherent programs, well-agented gimmicks/finishes, breath-of-fresh-air title changes, and a con...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

What a total trainwreck for WWN/FloSlam. Looking at the reports at face value, Gabe and Sal's actions were just ruthlessly appalling. It sours every actor and place in their neck of the industry. - Renting shitty places for next to nothing - Renting shitty rings that break every two seconds - Workin...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Maybe it’s merely 2017 and I have no chill left, but this smacks of WCW-ism (as TYFDK alluded to) and of ROH’s suspicious ‘venue’ liaising. (Soon venue will just be a misleading term, and we’ll have to resort to calling these locations as stage select courses.) Shilly Jericho and halfway-loosened-ti...

Re: ROHCast Questions thread *UPDATED 09/14/17*

Dear Casters, How has KUSHIDA's reign fared in your eyes? While there wasn't much buildup before his title win, he has at least had some pretty good matches in the past few months. If KUSHIDA holds the IWGP belt until Wrestle Kingdom, would he still likely be the TV champion as well? Do you think RO...

Re: Official Death Before Dishonor (Las Vegas 9/22) Thread

Coast 2 Coast definitely should have at least something by now. ROH has barely breathed any life into the division since reDRagon lost the belts (other than, in spurts, select programs with the Young Bucks), so I guess this is just to be expected. Any chance we get a Shelley/Gresham switch at the PP...

Re: Ring of Honor Events Schedule Thread

Hopefully they'll do the same thing this year. They'll probably wait until after the upcoming Philly show though. I think they should have taken a risk and booked a larger arena but the Hammerstein is the Hammerstein. Its sort of become synonymous with ROH at this point. It’s hard finding venues in...

Suzuki retained against Elgin. The plot is now very thick en route to Death Before Dishonor.

Re: Official Death Before Dishonor (Las Vegas 9/22) Thread

Scurll vs. Chuckie T is a sober reminder that ROH used to actually be a superindie. Alas, this is a great undercard attraction match. Even though the card is a little too rematch-heavy, I won't complain with the amount of matches that are currently driven by an established program. As long as the ma...

Re: Soaring Eagle Cup 2017 Official Thread

So it obviously won't be Survival of the Fittest-like, especially if it's the next month, but a small little precursor at a casino that's so far away from anything really, one has to wonder if they didn't just pay ROH to have a show there. Wow. I didn't notice that the closest major city, Flint (po...

Re: Ring of Honor Events Schedule Thread

‘Soaring Eagle’ rang off as an odd Ring of Honor name. Then I realized it was named after the casino—which was pretty deflating. This could even be a multi-year negotiation like Sam’s Town, of course all depending on this event's success. I think this is the venue. Non-tiered and open floor. It look...

Re: The TNA Thread

For wrestling fans who don’t care much for either promotion, of course it’s damage unnoticed. It’s bad for the wrestling industry because lots of people will be out of a job, talent will be offered wages lower than they deserve, televised wrestling gets halved, freelance talent will have two less pl...

Re: The TNA Thread

Somehow, the company has still seen darker days. Wish the roster well and the company luck. I don't watch either promotion, but losing LU and Jarrett Vortex Wrestling so close to each other would be very bad for the industry.

Re: ROH championship belt lawsuit

Can anyone confirm if this segment aired on the SBG program?

If this is just a wrestling angle being introduced here to be employed again throughout his title defenses, then I think it’s a pretty decently smart angle, or at least very honest effort of getting heat back on Cody.

I always find funny the "buzz" thing. I mean, the IWC, or even the Twitter Wrestling Commumity is little. They (maybe we) aren't an important thing. Most of them even don't go to the shows. They arent representaive of the real buzz. Everybody, nowadays, love hating on ROH without watching the TV/VO...

Re: ROH championship belt lawsuit

So what do you guys think about the 'Ring' of Honor over having an actual belt? It's among the dumbest ideas I've ever heard. This x 1000. Does anyone have an idea what that segment was? Like, thirty-years outdated "cheap heat"? Was it an infomercial? And is he supposed to be a babyface? What is th...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

EVOLVE gets nowhere near as much buzz as ROH because it doesn't get any buzz at all! EVOLVE is an independent promotion that the WWE, who EVOLVE initially wanted to be the opposite of, partnered up with in-order to "nudge-nudge" specific talents on the independent scene in order to make sure they d...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIDtmlvRCM8&t=0s ROH posted the "Ring of Honor" segment yesterday. The proper ROH World Title is shown on the program.

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

If anybody thinks EVOLVE is "hot" or has "buzz" they are straight up delusional. At least with ROH people are coming out to the shows, not that there is any comparison to be made between the two promotions due to ROH's obvious advantages, but EVOLVE sold its soul to become essentially a feeder prom...
