Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

I love seeing Taylor and the Best Friends but I hope it doesn't mean we've seen the last of Rocky Romero/Roppongi Vice.

That strap match was pretty brutal. Fun stuff though.

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

Another guy in his late 30s/early 40s to NXT.

Sort of a strange take on "developmental" if you ask me. Either way, hopefully Bobby gets paid. I'll miss him and I doubt WWE will use him well, but I wish him nothing but success.

Re: ROH possibly changing to new channel?

Charge is new; it will probably catch up to Comet eventually. Sinclair seems to be going all in on these digital subchannels. Comet, Charge, TBD, ASN, and soon thisTV and Antenna TV). It's a backwards move in that it loses some markets vs Comet, but it'll be pretty irrelevant if that Tribune deal co...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I think NJPW probably wants their guys on TV as much as possible. The AXS TV show has very limited availability (they said it was getting 200,000 viewers per week when they renewed it at AXS) and NJPW World has less than 10,000 subscribers outside of Japan. So pretty much the only exposure their sta...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Who cares what WWE thinks? Those idiots have Jinder Mahal as a world champ with Baron Corbin having a title shot in hand. Corbin just went over in a match that also included AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Steen, and El Generico. So obviously in-ring prowess is not something that WWE cares about...

Re: The NJPW Thread

I never seriously considered that Cody would win the IWGP title, I was just saying that it would be amusing to read the forums if he did. Can you imagine the meltdowns if Cody Rhodes of all people held the ROH and IWGP titles simultaneously?

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

I see KUSHIDA defending the title this Summer. He won't be in the G1 bc he's a Jr. Heavweight, so he could defend It un Summer. Since Silas defeated him at WOTW, I see Silas getting the title from KUSH. Plus, if ROH and NJPW book this well, KUSHIDA's reign should elevate the prestige of the title. ...

Re: Tuesday Rollout

All of Cody's merch looks unfinished, like they got lazy before writing "Rhodes"

It's absurd that WWE can block his usage of the Rhodes name. Especially when his wife gets to be Brandi Rhodes.

Re: Silas Young interview

Doesn't his nickname directly imply that Beer City Bruiser is, in fact, not a real man?

Does he know who their third partner for the six man titles was supposed to be, and will we ever find out?

Any hopes of working more/bigger matches with NJPW or CMLL talent?

Best current world trios championship?

Since trios wrestling is seemingly all the rage of late, I thought I'd ask everyone which promotion they think has the best trios title. It can be which title you think is most prestigious, which is best booked, who the current champions are, the physical designs of the belts themselves, or whatever...

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

They're obviously getting something out of the Vegas shows, otherwise they'd stop doing them. Maybe they want to maintain some sort of foothold in the western part of the country, and Vegas is one of the most accessible destinations in the region. Give the fans out here a bone. Vegas is the closest ...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I think Lee is head and shoulders above Rush, whom I also like. Lee is so much more polished because his family tree includes: Arturo Munoz Sanchez (AKA Commandante Pierroth, Toro Blanco, etc; Lee's father) Rush (Lee's brother) Mistico II (AKA Dragon Lee I, Carlos Munoz Gonzalez; Lee's brother) Fran...

Re: The NJPW Thread

I know it won't happen, but the internet would explode if Cody Rhodes wins both the ROH World Title and IWGP Heavyweight Title in the span of about a week. There would be so many glorious meltdowns.

Fenix has almost five years on Lee. Not really a "young guy" at this point but still fantastic.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I didn't see Benoit or much of Sayama at that age but I would say Danielson was a better specialist then while Dragon Lee is more complete. There is nothing that happens in between the ropes that Dragon Lee isn't fantastic at. High flying, striking, throws, submissions, mat wrestling, counters... he...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

If Kushida wins the IWGP Jr Heavyweight Championship back at Dominion, will he be the first wrestler to hold singles gold in ROH and NJPW at the same time? Obviously it's been done a number of times with all the various tag team belts, but I can't think of any instances as far as singles belts go. A...

Yes! – PWInsider reports that according to several sources, Dalton Castle has come to terms with a new deal to stay with Ring of Honor. Castle reportedly came to terms with ROH for the deal in the last several days. His previous deal was to expire this month, and they had not yet come to a new deal...
