Re: The Dalton Castle-Watch Thread

I think Cody & Scurll working regularly as a tag team would give Cody something relatively important to do while keeping him out of the main event scene for a bit, plus you can start planting the seeds of discontent between Cody and Marty more easily in case they ever go that route. And you would fr...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I mean, I do think there are a lot of relatively simple booking mistakes made that could improve the product, and I don't think all the BS finishes are necessary, and more a sign of lazy booking. But I also think there are decades worth of proof that you can't be a mainstream wrestling promotion and...

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

I love Eddie and I love ROH, but Eddie would be nuts to come back. He's gone from random midcarder to main champion for two major companies (three if you count NOAH; I haven't followed his career there closely enough to know if it should count or if he went away for a while and came back as a big de...

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

Surprised WWE is still interested in Japanese wrestlers after KENTA and Nakamura haven't really panned out, although I imagine in terms of expectations Kushida would be closer to Tozawa than those two.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I think it's okay as long as he was used / wrestled like an athletic heel manager. Jumping guys from behind, hitting them when one of his teammates are holding them down, etc. I would have had a big problem if it were a 4 v 4 match though, and still might have a problem if they do "face" celebrity s...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

The first two things I thought of:

- Kevin Sullivan run in at the end of the Corino / Whitmer fight without honor
- Larry Sweeney dragging Bobby Dempsey on top of an "unconscious" Allison Danger

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

I don't think this does much for ROH unless it's booked like an actual ROH / NJPW super show with meaningful title matches that get time. Glory By Honor V Night 2 on steroids, where any special guests are ROH / NJPW style guys like Danielson, Aries, PAC etc. If they book random lucha guys against ea...

Re: ROH ELITE 2017 Official Thread

That doesn't make any sense with them about to launch a streaming service. Plus, who the hell still buys DVDs? I've moved onto Ultra HD Blu Ray. I feel annoyed when I have to settle for a standard Blu Ray, let alone caveman technology like DVDs. Hi. I have little free time at home and only watch du...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Dalton versus Daniels at SCOH would be a cool throwback since Daniels defended versus Castle there last year.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I don't kill Delirious for his booking that often because I think if booking was as easy as we think it is, every wrestling show would be booked well when in reality none of them all. But boy was jobbing Best Friends to BCB & Silas at Global Wars Chicago and then putting them in (and winning) a #1 c...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

Never understood why they revived the ASE "brand" for their big fall show and then let GBH fade into a glorified house show (or TV taping at least one year). Seems like it would have been better to just keep GBH as the big fall show.

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I cannot believe people are advocating for James Ellsworth in ROH, even in a joking manner. 100% agree. I get that being a wrestling fan in 2017 involves some level of ironic appreciation of the wrestlecrap parts of the business (apparently we like screwy finishes and run ins now as long as they ar...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

I doubt anyone in Sinclair worth anything watches much ROH, I mean I'm pretty sure Dalton Castle would be a heel if they did. I find it interesting that guys like Joey Ryan and Scorpio Sky are getting booked when they haven't wrestled in PWG for years. I might be the only one, but I miss the local f...

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

Oh. Well then I hope it gets 15+ too, I hate elimination matches that feel rushed. Although if they do a double countout spot with Taylor and Martinez after a few minutes of them hitting power moves and then let Silas and Kenny have ten minutes by themselves, that would be fine, I guess.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I don't disagree, but I'd like to see King retain over Taylor and build King / Silas into a proper fued before doing the switch.

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

So I started thinking about which matches I'd like to see kept short so the other matches could have more time, and kind of realized how few matches on the card would benefit. I think Lethal / Scurll and the rumored BC / Flip's Army matches are the only ones I care to see get 15+ minutes. Everything...

Re: Official 'Sunshine State Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (11.12.17)

Maybe it's just me adding two and two and getting five, but Coast 2 Coast as Flip's partners would make sense. A jobber team as two thirds of your trio champs isn't a great look. But kayfabe wise, we know the BC will defend the belts against any trio. If Flip challenges them and recruits Coast 2 Coa...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

It would actually be a really good idea to do Champions versus All Stars during a NJPW tour considering how weak the undercard usually is for that show.

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

That reminds me, we didn't have a GBH this year, did we? That sucks, should have just made the TX triple shot a Glory By Honor weekend and skipped SotF or done it this weekend.
