Re: Official 'Honor Reigns Supreme 2018' Live Event Thread (2.9.18)

In the interest of fairness, I don't think he's had a ton of chances to steal the show (although that is part of the argument against him imo). But I also think when he has, he's under delivered. DBD 2015 against Cole, BitW 2016 against Fish and SCoH 2017 against Daniels come to mind. For me the upc...

He's had more than one with just Silas Young.
We obviously have different definitions of "great". New exercise. Name a show where Dalton Castle was in the best match on the show.

You think Castle is one of the best workers? Agree to disagree, but I don't think he's had a single great match in ROH.

Re: Official 'Honor Reigns Supreme 2018' Live Event Thread (2.9.18)

I agree 100% that Dalton still feels like a midcard guy and putting him in random midcard matches does less than nothing for him. I disagree that treating this show as a tease was the way to go. Assuming they weren't saving it for a big show down the road (would be a shock considering how they've bo...

Re: Official 'Saturday Night at Center Stage' TV Tapings Thread (2.10.18)

Well, I'm glad Kenny got the belt back, he deserves more than what he got the first time around with one off title matches with Cheeseburger, Joey Ryan, Scorpio Sky and Caprice. Not sure why people love Silas so much more, but I hope these two fued for a while, it feels like a natural match up.

Re: Why was Ciampa never as interesting in ROH...

It's easy to blame booking, but he's also had the benefit of working 100% with or against Gargano, who is one of the best babyfaces in the world, so once he moves on to something different he's still going to have to show his current form is the new standard imo.

Re: Tuesday Rollout

Have they released ANY new merchandise yet this year? I only follow the DVD releases, which I know for a fact they haven't. Not sure about gear, but it doesn't seem like it. This is / was the fourth Tuesday of the year.

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

Hoping that they signed Bully to a one year contract, he legit broke down and couldn't fulfill it but wants to honor his dates, and ROH is just letting him with a few token appearances before it runs out in a month or two.

Re: The PWG Thread

Chuck Taylor won the belt back from Ricochet in a Guerilla Warfare match. I'm surprised, thought Chuck's win over ZSJ was a lifetime achievement thank you, but I guess not. Thatcher made his return, teaming with WALTER against Cobb and Riddle. Fred Yehi and David Starr made their debut against one a...

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

Feels early for a Cody versus Omega grudge match, but don't know that Cody has done anything to deserve a title shot. Of course, that didn't stop Okada from giving him one, so maybe Cody just asks for a shot and Kenny obliges. Have they been teasing dissension between the two recently in NJPW or BTE?

Re: Bullet Club’s All In - Saturday, September 1, 2018

I think the New Japan crew (including Okada and Tanahashi) could sell 10,000. Jericho would probably help, too. I agree, if they are put in meaningful matches and not pointless exhibitions. I think Punk v Omega is more likely than Okada v Omega though, I think NJPW would prefer to profit from any m...

Re: Bullet Club’s All In - Saturday, September 1, 2018

Anyone find it incredibly damning of WWE's lack of consistently drawing 10K+ for Raw/SmackDown TV if this best of ROH/NJPW/other indies crew actually sells out the building, considering the significantly less exposure this project will have on North American television? Not really. It's apples and ...

Re: Ring of Honor Events Schedule Thread

Why haven't they made a serious go at getting Aries to come in? Yeah. This has had me quite confused. You'd think that Aries would have shown up in ROH or TNA or WWN or New Japan or somewhere by now, but he hasn't. I think Aries has heat with ROH. Remember, Aries did nothing for six months between ...

Re: Tuesday Rollout

Tends to be approximately 3 months after a show, I'd expect them to release all the Global Wars shows any week now.

If Road to BitW is the show I'm thinking of that was half TV taping and half VOD, my guess is they won't release it on DVD.

Even though Shelley has been around forever, he's only a few years older than Dalton Castle (and younger than Silas Young and Kenny King, to name a couple "fresh faces"). I am of a similar opinion, in that Shelley's current run has felt mailed in, but I was also impressed by his AoW interview. If th...

Re: Will Cody's ROH Title reign be bottom of the barrel or better?

If Cody stayed in WWE and the last year played out the same with Marty in Cody's spot, I don't think there would be any negative impact to attendance or ratings or whatever metric you like. Plus, the matches wouldn't suck.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

You guys are making a mountain out of a mole hill imo. All he said was that the Observer numbers aren't reliable. Considering that it looks like the majority of whatever ROH news Meltzer has seems to come straight from Delirious, I don't think that should be considered a controversial statement.
