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: Who would be ROH’s Garrett Kidney?

McXal is 2 years behind now, but that's who came to mind.

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.

Re: Alex Shelley

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.

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

So now that it's in the books ... Yes, this reign was bottom of the barrel. I'd say it's 80% on Cody, 20% on Delirious. The first two thirds or whatever we're just the drizzling shits, with the Sanada, Suzuki and Kushida matches all sucking. It's mostly on Cody for stalling so much and killing the c...

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I'm thinking Best Friends take the tag titles tonight And Punishment Martinez wins the TV title. It may be interesting to see how things play out with Ospreay and War Machine. On the VOW podcast Lanza is saying Ospreay is rumored to be the upcoming Evolve return announcement so I wonder if he's gon...

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...

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.

I assume Ricochet, although Hanson or Rowe wouldn't shock me.
