How big of a building is ROH running?
From what I understand, it seats about 9k.
Okay. Good. They're really trying with this.

Re: Official 'Honor Reigns Supreme 2018' Live Event Thread (2.10.18)

It really bugs me that ROH themselves hasn't put a 2018 on the logo. It's another sign that the company views these shows as totally interchangeable and generic.

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Everybody talks crap about Taven but I can't remember the last bad singles match he was in. He's certainly no Bryan Danielson but his recent matches with Will Ospreay, Jay Lethal, Flip Gordon, and Jay White were all good. Right. He's not bad in the ring, but he's, like, bottom of the midcard level ...

I don't know if I want to see a Cody-Matt Taven program.
I'm certain I don't.

In fairness to Whitmer vs. Corino, they actually tried to do the blow-off two different times before the match that ended in the Sullivan debacle but Whitmter was injured for BITW 2015 and Corino was injured for FB 2015.

<strong>Episode One</strong> 1. The Motor City Machine Guns fought Best Friends to a no-contest. The Briscoe Brothers interfered to end the match. They attacked and laid out the MCMG on a steel chair. 2. Marty Scurll over Shane Taylor. Marty threw powder in his eyes of Taylor and then won by roll u...

Re: Project Rewatch - ROH: The Good Shit

If you were only on the ROH forum, then you weren’t getting a fair collection of feedback. The Observer forum brilliantly saw the creative weaknesses by early 2007, which was very jarring for me at the time as I still sipped the Kool-Aid. I also no longer look at the “common folk” type responses, b...

Re: Who would be ROH’s Garrett Kidney?

The names that first come to mind are either Sedor or Big Red Machine, though I wish either of those two very respectable people be far away from what seems to be a very messy work culture. Personal advice: no one should should subject themselves to work at a place that advertises their goods as so...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

No argument there. I just don't see any reason for him to be more than an occasional act. I'd actually really like to see him challenge Silas while they are in Nashville. I'd actually like to see him be given a chance against someone like Jay Briscoe or Jay Lethal who would be able to test him pure...

Realistically, I see it as Lio, but he's also really the only one I see in danger of being cut.

Get outside the ROHbot bubble and you’ll easily find many who got pushed away at the time, with that direction playing a part. Hanging someone upside down while bleeding also didn’t help.

Ethan is a decent character, but a mediocre wrestler. ROH shouldn't be going after guys like him.

Re: Project Rewatch - ROH: The Good Shit

It alienated much of the live crowd, including casuals and newbies. It came across as incredibly second-rate and jumping the shark, a huge reach in an attempt to be edgy. Black’s inclusion also didn’t fit the group’s “collection of rejects” shtick. If that’s not enough, there were also “boring” cha...
