Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

If they don't sign Deonna soon, someone else will. She's already appeared for both WWE and Impact and she's only getting better.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

The announcement had better be that they signed Deonna Purrazzo and are introducing a Women of Honor World Championship.

Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

Ah, I see. I am assuming Silas Young wins the TV title and they probably won't go back to Castle vs Silas, so Punishment makes sense. I feel like the Briscoes are going to be chasing the tag belts for a little while.

Maybe a program with Adam Page could work for Castle.

Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

Dalton's gotta be winning here. I honestly can't see Ibushi losing to Cody at the Tokyo Dome but I also don't see him holding the ROH World Championship. This is a compelling point, but it's hard to imagine them not rolling into Supercard of Honor with the belt on their biggest draw. They're trying...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

You can't really call ECW a successful business endeavor, though. A trendsetter, a fantastic product, and my personal favorite promotion but they were on WWF life support towards the end. It doesn't really matter how many people you can draw if you're losing your ass while you do it. To be clear, I ...

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 hope Tommy comes in a few pounds lighter than he was last I saw him on ROH TV. I expect a fun match either way, though.

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 pro...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

From the article on the front page, I hadn't realized how young Mandy Leon is. It feels like she's been around forever but she's only 25 years old. I had figured she was in her early 30s. She still has quite a bit of development ahead of her if she's willing to keep working at it.

Re: Lavie article: SBG buying Tribune

Is there any new news about the deal? I just recently found out about this merger and have been doing a lot of Google searching to try to find information. The elephant in the room is a 2 or 3 hours Weekly show on WGN. Let's be quite frank. The only way they will be seen as a viable alternative to ...

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

The gong show has been going on since the beginning but it doesn't change the fact that TNA was, until very recently, a major promotion. Even now, as a shell of what they once were, they're arguably still the #6 promotion in the world behind WWE, NJPW, CMLL, AAA, and ROH. Maybe you could argue Drago...

AroLucha

Konnan, Vince Russo, and the Harris twins producing a lucha libre show in the vein of Lucha Underground, except it's supposed to be family friendly.

I don't see how this could possibly be a massive, massive gong show. Definitely not.

Re: The WWE Thread

Sheamus is apparently rehabbing spinal stenosis, which is very serious. It's the same sort of issue that claimed the careers of Edge and Steve Austin. I can't stand Sheamus as a performer but I wish him nothing but success in his recovery. I don't know what this means for Claudio either but obviousl...

You can shit on the Impact championship all you want but when Eddie won his title it still had some meaning. He took the belt off of Bobby Lashley, who had just unified the World Title with the X-Division and KOTM Titles. And it's the same lineage that includes the likes of Sting, AJ Styles, Kurt An...

Re: Questions for interviews with ROH talent

Riccaboni mentioned ROH having TV in France -- I was not aware of this. I knew about Canada, India, and Portugal but I haven't heard anything about France since their short term trial deal didn't work out a few years back.

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

I would't say NWA is more relevant, but the NWA title is a story that has catched me more than anything EVOLVE has made in the last 6 months. In some years, I can see NWA a good little thing in the indies, it's something fresh. Instead of responding with another detailed piece, this is all I need t...

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

I'm always willing to take a shot at WWE. Until they stop sucking, at which point I will take all the credit.

So really, you should all be thanking me.
