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...

Storm, yes, if only as short-term. Singles against Jay Lethal, tagging with Silas against the Young Bucks.

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.

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

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. He's a shitty wrestler with an equally shitty gimmick. Jonathan Gresham has a tall task in front of him in making this guy, who is 100% useless ...

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...

Feels like this should be an easy collaboration given what's happening on the Random Thoughts thread. I'll start sending PMs now.

You've both made clearly stated your cases, and I think if this continues it'll ...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

And my source on this is mostly from Harrington and Thurston. The WWE has performed less at the gate this year than others in recent memory, but they're offsetting it by running more shows. Their income is largely generated through their deal with NBC Universal, so they'll likely be in a bit of a ho...

Ya know what? Thinking here made me realize. I don't see Ibushi losing to Cody at the Dome...I don't see ROH putting the World title on Ibushi... DALTON WINS AT FINAL BATTLE Title or non-title, it is a pretty mystifying match to take place at Wrestle Kingdom. My guess is that whomever wins here unl...

Hey! I'm all in for this year's awards! I'll do my best to help with this project.
Thank you, Alex! Figured I could count on you for these. You did an excellent job helping last year's efforts.

I'll give this a few days until I started sending out group messages.

Collaborators for ROHWorld's MOTY Awards

Last year I wrote for the threads for the MOTY awards. I probably haven't watched enough of the product this year to author them again.

Joe Koff may come off as an idiot in interviews but he's actually running a successful wrestling promotion on a national scale right now. He's the only person in the US not named Vince McMahon to be doing that. You could have Jeff Jarrett, Ed Nordholm, Dorian Roldan, Dixie Carter, Billy Corgan, Eri...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Hey! I was reading NJPW's website and there are still big possibilities of Dalton Castle winning the World Title at Final Battle this year. In the article where they talk about Cody vs Ibushi title match, it also say this: "この時点でCodyがベルトを保持していない場合はスペシャルシングルマッチとして行う。" This means that if Cody isn't c...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Just enjoy, or stop watching, the current one. Don't compare it to the old ROH in every single review. Everybody knows that it has changed. With all the wrestling available nowadays, you don't have to watch every single ROH show if it hurts you so much. From what I've seen here, most people critici...
