Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

So, from what I've seen in Twitter, yesterday was a little crowd. It's normal being a Sunday in Oklahoma against Survivor Series. I like Martinez winning. They've been building him slow and this victory will help him a lot to begin 2018 as a credible challenger. With this victory, too, I can see ei...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I think bringing in a guy like James Storm only to stick him in a trio of any kind- especially with Silas & BCB would be a huge waste.

I really like that the six guys in the finals are all guys who would be greatly elevated with a win.

ROH doesn’t take itself seriously anymore, so I’m content with it being a glorified vanity/vacation for the NJPW stars. NJPW has come closest to carrying the serious business torch held by ROH and NOAH during the 2000s.

EVOLVE is much more serious than New Japan. No Yano.

Anyone think James Storm shows up in ROH? Even for a little bit. I think he ends up in Lucha Underground but I wouldn't be surprised if he showed up in ROH for a brief period before filming for Season 4 begins.
I think it makes a lot of sense, especially with the Nashville taping coming up.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Overall I thought the TV show was much better this year as I felt more time was dedicated to matches. However, I will agree with BRM about lack of clean finishes and wasting talent in go nowhere storylines. Needs to be fixed, but it won't. I use Nigel's run as Pure Champion as a point of reference ...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I too will agree that at times, finishes have been too screwy and there needs to be definitive winners to end stories. Has anybody disputed the booking issues? There are booking issues. There were much worse ones, but some are still there, but not as bad as it was this time last year. Now it seems ...

Re: ROH Final Battle 2017 Official Thread

I saw someone say it elsewhere, but if the point of this match is to get Lethal back into his groove how awesome would it be if the old mix of his theme plays and Truth Martini corners him to the ring, to bring back the "old Jay Lethal"? Since I read it, that to me would be an awesome moment for Fi...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

I haven't seen this weeks, but the end of the tag team title match with War Machine and MCMG was pretty much the worse, cluster fuck of an ending I have seen from ROH in a long time. I mean seriously silly string and still no DQ just the what the hell was that. Yeah man, I can see what you're sayin...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I just want to remind people in general that what we, as hardcore wrestling fans, consider good booking is not always what makes a company popular among the wide audience. Remember, Vince Russo was booking TNA during its ratings peak. But how much of that is just an issue of exposure? D'Amore had o...

Re: 2016 Thoughts and analysis

2016 was 50/50 for me. The first 6-7 months of the years wans't that good (outside the stellar WM Weekend with 2 awesome SCOH shows), with average shows and some bad and lazy booking. The second half of the year, on the other hand was pretty solid and the in-ring level raised. I didn't like Kyle wi...

Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

I cannot believe people are advocating for James Ellsworth in ROH, even in a joking manner. 100% agree. I get that being a wrestling fan in 2017 involves some level of ironic appreciation of the wrestlecrap parts of the business (apparently we like screwy finishes and run ins now as long as they ar...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

ROH will run in California when they have enough TV coverage out there, just like NJPW will move north and east when they feel like they can put together some tours that will draw. I can't imagine that there isn't some sizable market out (LA, SD, Bay Area) there that they don't have coverage in alr...

Re: Official Survival Of The Fittest 2017 Thread

I, too, am disappointed we're not getting a Glory By Honor this year. It has been one of ROH's biggest shows for most of its existence. They definitely could have condensed SOTF to two nights and made one of those nights GBH. All-Star Extravaganza I'm not so heartbroken about not getting, but if the...
