Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

My comparison of Taven to Miz wasn't meant to be a slight to either person. They both have ceilings and play similar roles. Someone like Taven, at this point, would be best served as a midcard gatekeeper for upcoming talents. Say, like antagonizing Flip Gordon or Jonathan Gresham. If I didn't know C...

Re: Official 'Music City Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (1.20.18)

Honestly, I'm a bit afraid to dive in scrutiny with your encyclopedia-brain, but, from what I remember, Corino and Whitmer were at least sowing seeds of animosity shortly after the ROH vs. SCUM feud (using sideeye glances or off-mic comments). After however much time of unclear grievance between the...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

By posting that, are you implying you believe Enzo should be brought into ROH? The alleged rapist? Orleans vs Enzo or bust. No this crosses the line for me too. The allegations about Orleans and the submitted report regarding Enzo are heavy and look to be evident of an entire industry of men abusin...

Re: The WWE Thread

Since the authors didn't do it--content warning for the article, which contains an account of the sexual assault and other abuses. It's graphic, and pretty despicable.

Re: Official 'Music City Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (1.20.18)

In fairness to Whitmer vs. Corino, they actually tried to do the blow-off two different times before the match that ended in the Sullivan debacle but Whitmter was injured for BITW 2015 and Corino was injured for FB 2015. In fairness to Whitmer vs. Corino is not a sentential sequence I thought I wou...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

(Welcome, everyone, to the the longest running thread in ROHWorld history!) Taven is ROH's Miz. I'm fine with that. Besides Taven and Cody being a pretty unseemly fit as a program, it's not a direction the company should take for one of its hottest stars. The Briscoes finally gained momentum after t...

Re: Supercard of Honor XII - New Orleans, LA (WM34 Weekend Info)

Ibushi! That will be almost ten years to the day of his debut in the company--and, likewise, almost a decade since hosting him.

If only Ospreay didn't just take off. Hope they give him a real pairing and not a "here, get your shit while you plow through Taven."

Re: Official 'Music City Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (1.20.18)

Oh my Goood at Bully Ray. #BringBackKoff If Bully Ray is to truly be the next multi-year scheme to waste TV time, then this easily joins the company of Whitmer/Corino as the most tedious thing ROH has ever done. Either Johnston is deeply cynical about their TV demographic (older white men) or this ...

Re: Who would be ROH’s Garrett Kidney?

What else would you call it? I guess "Official ROH Store" is slightly better, but it's not like there is a particularly good name out there (other than maybe "Emporium of Honor"). The ROH Shop, or the ROH Store, like every other normal wrestling company. Obviously, I wasn't trying to book around wh...

Re: Official 'Honor Reigns Supreme 2018' Live Event Thread (2.10.18)

If Gresham/Lethal gets a good amount if time it'll be a fantastic match. No doubt. It's probably telling that it's been over a year since Gresham was booked continually and ROH has still not shown many signs of investment in him. Regardless, I'm still holding hopes that he has a singles PPV match t...

Oh, where do I buy my ticket?

Hot Topic.
Judging by the way business has been controverted around the Young Bucks, we should probably expect a Superkick Party-branded Cracker Barrel before September, or something. Tickets to their tour in the front, six-star samplers in the alcoves.

Warmest gratitude toward Big Red Machine and AlexROH on developing the categories and nominees. It's quite a bit of effort, and I'm very grateful for their collaborative generosity. Also, I hope we can at least make it to five completed surveys on these awards. Not only would I like more points of d...
