Re: The WWE Thread

So far none of Summerslam, Takeover, Raw, or Smackdown at Barclays has sold out.

Re: The TNA Thread

He's poison. He's a 55 year old emotionally unstable manchild. He's going to end up assaulting another employee, berating a fan, or simply resuming his mission to take all of pro wrestling back to 1974.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

That's a great opportunity for a guy like Flip. The CMLL Anniversary show is probably the most important yearly non-WWE event on this continent. Depending on how many extra seats they want to pack into Arena Mexico, he'll be performing at their flagship show in front of 15,000-17,000 people. Also go...

Roppongi Vice never won the ROH World Tag Team Championship. You're thinking of Forever Hooligans.

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

WWE is just sad and frustrating to watch. The booking is worse than ROH's but the majority of the matches suck too. There's no upside other than getting to see former ROH/NJPW/TNA guys being less entertaining than they used to be.

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Omega is one guy I could see staying with NJPW long term. He's already a top guy there, he's got access to probably as many ROH/CMLL/PWG/UK bookings as he wants, he actually lives in Japan and speaks Japanese fluently, and NJPW is clearly on the rise right now while WWE is clearly on the decline. Of...

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Between the G1 in USA Specials and now Global Wars, it seems clear that ROH+NJPW have underestimated Kenny Omega's drawing power. Better than renting a huge building and then putting 350 fans in the seats like TNA but it's never a good policy to have to turn away people trying to give you money. See...

Re: OFFICIAL SATURDAY NIGHT AT CENTER STAGE 8/26/17 (TV Tapings) thread

I'm sorry, but I just can't stand when they take someone like Rocky Romero and try to point them as this sort of all-time great. Everyone hates it when WWE does it, so why does ROH think it's a good idea to copy this tactic that so many people find obnoxious? He's accomplished a hell of a lot: 1X I...

They have to add more seats. The arena is big enough. They could possibly even outdraw Supercard of Honor.

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Let's see if ROH will have a way to rebound from the seemingly inevitable decision by NJPW to split away, whenever that may be. Again, I really don't see why everyone sees this as inevitable. NJPW is on AXS for at least the next two years, and they get less than half the viewership there than ROH g...

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

I still think a lot is hanging in the balance with respect to the Tribune merger. If ROH can get on all of those local Tribune stations and WGN, it's going to really elevate their visibility. It's a little discouraging that they went from Comet to Charge, though. Charge makes more sense as far as wh...

Re: Global Wars 2017 Thread

Seems like they should add more seats if there are already that many sold with two months before the show.

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

WWE is passing on Rey Mysterio because they don't want to deal with his representation, Konnan. The obvious choice for Rey is GFW given Konnan is an on-screen character there and they work with his Crash promotion. He is said to have a contract offer in hand from them. The potential sticking point i...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

You don't get better PPV and TV deals if nobody wants to watch the product, though.

I agree that Pearce and Sapolsky were better bookers but the numbers are what they are.
