Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

That's such a weird thing to say. Every time someone runs an opponent into the ropes it should be pretty clear that what you're watching is staged. What's the thought process? "This guy is pulling me by the arm. I had better run over there, stop, turn around, bounce off, then run as fast as I can d...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

TORNADO TAG TEAM MATCH FOR THE ROH WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES: The Young Bucks(c) vs. War Machine vs. Best Friends- 6/10 SPOTS. And a lot of them were very frustrating. There has been a lot of talk recently about the idea of fans who come to the show to appreciate wrestling as an art form and fans who c...

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

It wouldn't be particularly interesting, but from a storyline standpoint Cody versus Frankie would make a lot of sense. Frankie picked up a big win over BC at BitW and wants to avenge Daniels's loss. Cody wants to humble Frankie for the fake BC turn after Page couldn't. This is the sort of thing th...

Re: Official BEST IN THE WORLD (TV Tapings) thread

It's almost like the Bullet Club is a complete failure in terms of creating hated heels. And that anyone with half a brain knew that they were going to be one even before they turned, so what type of f*cking moron would ever turn them in the first place? The one we're stuck with, unfortunately.

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

Can I disagree with the initial premise that Lynn, Xavier, and Elgin had the worst title reigns? Even if we discount Ki and Kyle for being too short, I'd still say that Cide, Cole 3, Gibson, and Jay Briscoe 1 were all worse than Lynn, and Jay Briscoe II was just a smidge better than Lynn's (I have X...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

Think you guys may be going a bit overboard with Cody as champ. Xavier wasn't a 6x WWE tag team champ, 2x IC champ... and it's not like Codys washed up/damaged good. Think it's a little early to grade him as champ. I'd imagine he'll have a solid heel run as champ, and hopefully get a face over in d...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

I'm really curious from all the people that dislikehate Cody, who should have beaten Daniels for the belt?? You realize like 3-4 main eventers just left, and they needed someone new to fill the gap. Only talent semi-ready for that was dalton castle and he just resigned. If you told me I HAD to pick...

Re: ROH Best in the World 2017 Thread

Well, that's it for me. I've been defending the current bookers way too long, that really is the lowest point in the history of the ROH belt, making a midcarder that gets no reaction and looks completely lost whenever he's in the ring champion just to get some cheap headlines. I mean we all know RO...

The Young Bucks one is horrendous though, looks like some three-legged, two-headed, super buff monster.

I think Jay Lethal's nickname is stupid. Shouldn't he claiming to be the absolute best wrestler in the world, not just the best first-generation wrestler in the world?

Re: Random ROH Classic Thoughts

As someone who didn't read the forums as much back then, was there any talk of Danielson coming back to ROH after his release from WWE during the Nexus angle? I find it strange he didn't have even one match back. Everyone was expecting it, but it never happened. If I recall correctly, Danielson at ...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Certainly NJPW have used the relationship with ROH to develop the fan base within the US and the TV will have helped with that but now that NJPW has Axxes and now seemingly a strong base in the US I would hope that the need for NJPW to use ROH as a vehicle is some sorts is gone. For everything that...

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 st...

Yeah I honestly don't rewatch the shows after they happen, so I couldn't give an opinion on that. I remember hearing that complaint after the first PPV, though.

Already signed for the FSW show that Sunday (9/24): Brian Cage, Keith Lee, Jeff Cobb. Going to be a good one.

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

ROH is on tv like 4 or 5 times a week here in Vegas. You could argue the market isn't "growing" because they're not running bigger buildings, but they run smaller shows in half empty buildings in the midwest all the time. What wrestling markets ARE growing? The New York shows do well, Philly shows ...
