Re: Billy Corgan's National Wrestling Alliance (NWA)

So after all of this build they gave us a five minute match on the mid-card of someone else's show. Yeah. I'm sure people will be pay attention the next time they build something up after that.

Re: Collaborators for ROHWorld's MOTY Awards

Me, AlexROH, and Big Red Machine have all been pretty hard at work with the MOTY categories and nominees. Sounds like we'll probably get things rolling a little before the New Year. Are there any big matches people want to shout out until then? A few from me: Bobby Fish vs. Jay Lethal (15YA) Marty ...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

You can't really call ECW a successful business endeavor, though. A trendsetter, a fantastic product, and my personal favorite promotion but they were on WWF life support towards the end. It doesn't really matter how many people you can draw if you're losing your ass while you do it. Right. But the...

If they don't sign Deonna soon, someone else will. She's already appeared for both WWE and Impact and she's only getting better.
Yeah... but this has been the case for a year now and no one- not ROH or TNA or WWE or STARDOM- has signed her yet.

What are the odds Ibushi and not Dalton is the next ROH World Champion?
IMO very low. I don't necessarily think Dalton is winning the belt (at least not at Final Battle), but I don't think they'll put it on Kota.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

For those who still pine for an ROH of ten years ago over the SBG ROH, I think I have a good example of what 2005 ROH in 2017 would look like. Evolve 97. 200 people in a building that looks to hold twice that, watching a few great workers and many good to poor. A promotion that still looks small ti...

Cody retained his Title last Night in London in what described as a great match with dramatic last minutes and beliveable false finishes.

Match will be available on ROH website, or At least that what they said
This is in RevPro, right?

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I'd second KOR. A 15 day reign with no successful defenses and then he just disappeared after. At least Elgin tried. I actually thought most of Elgin's reigns were pretty great. I actually have him ranked above Daniels, Xavier, both Briscoe reigns, Gibson, Homicide, Low Ki, Lynn, Cole 3, and Kyle.

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

So apparently ROH has interest in bringing Eddie Edwards back once his contract with Impact expires in February, where it's unlikely he'll stick around because Impact are going to be paying everyone except for Del Rio on per-day contracts and not salaries like the ones EE, EC3 and Lashley are on. I...

Elgin being Elgin again.

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

God I wish that they'd make the NEVER Openweight Title an actual Openweight Title again. I love that it's the BEAT THE SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER belt but they are really missing out on some neat matches. I'd have much rather seen KUSHIDA wrestle Suzuki for the NEVER Belt at the Dome instead of another...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

I would't say NWA is more relevant, but the NWA title is a story that has catched me more than anything EVOLVE has made in the last 6 months. In some years, I can see NWA a good little thing in the indies, it's something fresh. Instead of responding with another detailed piece, this is all I need t...

Re: ALL PURPOSE CONTRACT STATUS/POTENTIAL DEPARTURES THREAD

Kushida. Read somewhere earlier this year WWE were looking at him. If they won't move him up to the heavyweight division there really isn't anymore he can do in NJPW. He can stay around NJPW/ROH/CMLL/RevPro having awesome matches with Ospreay, Scurll, Hiromu, BUSHI, ACH, Rocky Romero, Taguchi, Drag...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

Until the NWA actually runs its own show, they're not more relevant than Evolve. They're Jeff Jarrett's original GFW, a promotion that exists on paper. They have a belt and a name and nothing else. This. Dragon Saga, the fact that you would call a "promotion" that has done nothing but put out a ser...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I didn't realize Rhodes had been Cody's legal last name since he was 17 years old, and is also Brandi's legal last name. I thought the legal name was Runnels. Strange that WWE can still keep him from using it when it has been his legal name since he was a minor. Are we sure this is true? If it was,...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

That match with Silas Young was easily the best I've seen Josh Woods look. Silas made him look really good and there were no major botches like when Woods didn't know how to take Kenny King's finisher. Haven't seen this match, but your analysis solidifies why Silas deserves a run with the TV title....

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

The Briscoes stuff was great, but once they get into the ring with Bully and Dreamer things will fall apart because Bully and Dreamer aren't good enough to go with the Briscoes... and I mean even in a plunder match, based on what we've seen from Bully this year.
