Re: Collaborators for ROHWorld's MOTY Awards

Me, AlexROH, and Big Red Machine have all been pretty hard at work with the MOTY categories and nominees. Sounds like we'll probably get things rolling a little before the New Year. Are there any big matches people want to shout out until then? A few from me: Bobby Fish vs. Jay Lethal (15YA) Marty S...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

What ultimately killed ECW was TNN not believing in them. My original comment was in response to the fiction of mainstream wrestling seeking to not being wrestling intensive (which I also read as lackluster product). I brought up ECW as a secondary point, but we can look at the success of New Japan ...

Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

I think if Cody loses they're going to build him back up, so Martinez or Briscoe may not be the place they go first. Maybe a guy like Kenny King or Gresham could work a short program with Cody going over. I was referring to Dalton, if he loses at Final Battle. (I'm staring daggers into my original,...

Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

Promotional video for Cody vs. Dalton Castle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8ckprk9lkc While I think this match is nearly a lock for Cody to retain, this feud has been the most we've seen Cody work to get an opponent over. Any ideas where he could go next if he loses? Jay Briscoe and Punishment M...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Agreed with above. Also, the Venn diagram of people who don't want current ROH in-ring compared to ROH in 2005 and those who compare current ROH attendance to Evolve's might as well be a geometric circle. I mean, I do think there are a lot of relatively simple booking mistakes made that could improv...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I thought the best part of this week's show wasn't even a wrestling match. The Briscoes showing up raising hell at The Team 3D school was really good I thought. Between this and the HoH appearance where they beat the shit out of Tommy Dreamer, my expectations for a match I really had no expectation...

Re: Billy Corgan's National Wrestling Alliance (NWA)

No promotions are under the NWA banner. All the agreements lapsed. As of now the NWA is just a name and a belt leeching off low level indies just to put on a single match at a time. They're essentially Jeff Jarrett's original Global Force Wrestling, except instead of a third generation wrestling pr...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

RPW has uploaded the show to his streaming service. Pretty great match. 25 minutes and good story. Cody worked as a heel and did it well, with a good limbwork to Lethal's knee. Lethal sold everything great and add a lot of drama. Final minutes with Marty, as I read, were hot. Not a classic by any m...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

Hyperbolic arguments like this does no one any favors. NWA's recent output has been really engaging--it's an independent angle that's had as much attention poured upon in than any other I can recall. Evolve does some of this well too, if you ask people that are in the weeds of the product. Kenny Joh...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I don't get Elgin at all. He seems so sensitive and thick headed. That picture everyone had of Elgin in 2014 turned out to be the real him. He pretty much admitted performing sexual abuse in his interview for the Kevin Steen Show. Distressed to see that he'd never tried to change, despite marriage ...

Re: Cody/Bucks planning 10K seat venue show in 2018

In the Random Thoughts thread famicommander mentioned that there is no real downside to this, and I agree, except possibly for Cody if he keeps bringing up the 10,000 number and the show ends up falling far, far below that. The announcement of this show alone will generate anticipatory buzz for Cody...

Wait--they can't seriously be doing another climate disaster poster, can they? When the effects of Harvey and Irma are still felt so large? ROH was chewed out for this just last year. Please stop this gimmick.
