Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

The issue isn't so much who Page is hanging. The issue (which was originally brought up) is that Adam Page is trying to murder people. And ROH doesn't care because Bullet Club sells a lot of merch. This is the story that has been acknowledged with in-ring promos and on commentary. How the rest of th...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I liked Brisoe's first reign, though it wasn't overwhelmingly great by any means. His second reign, being the result of some spur of the moment booking, actually turned out really well in the culmination of the title vs title feud. But, I don't see how they can do much interesting with a third reign...

Re: The WWE Thread

Was alerted to this little gem. The Reigns tour opened on 5/27 in Springfield, IL, before 2,600 fans. 5/28 in Peoria drew 2,200. 5/29 in Madison WI, drew 2,300. Those are pretty bad numbers for WWE title shows. The Ambrose crew had the star show of the weekend on 5/28 in Winnipeg before 6,000 fans,...

Re: Necro Butcher has retired

I'm not a huge fan of the death match stuff, but Necro always knew how to put a match together in a more interesting way than most do. He clearly had a good mind for wrestling far beyond what a lot of indy wrestlers do. I always respected that quite a bit. He's also an embodiment of the great contra...

Re: Official Road To "Best In The World '16" Thread

Night 2 thoughts and reactions: First half of the show was pretty underwhelming but there were some bright spots in the second half. It did a real nice job of promoting and setting up BITW with a combination of matches, outcomes, and promos which was real nice. I definitely prefer that over random ...

Re: Shouldn't the Bucks be Suspended?

Yeah if they aren't suspending anyone just ignore and don't mention it. Nigel saying basically "what the Bullet Club did was despicable, and they assaulted and injured many of our employees, and they deserve suspensions, but we don't really care because they make us a lot of money" makes the ROH fro...

Re: ROH on SBG Discussion Thread

Very sad that the Addiction has been booked like shit for two years and thus no one cares. They weren't booked like shit when they came in, and the response to their matches with arguably the best team in the world at the time was lukewarm at best. In general they haven't really had any great match...

Re: anyone have he monthly subscription to NJPW World?

I had an issue with the billing and haven't been able to get it since. Worked fine for about 8 months then all of a sudden they wouldn't accept my card. Called the card company and they checked everything and made sure there were no flags or issues with it being international, and it still wouldn't ...

Re: Adam Cole's expected NJPW tenure

Not saying it won't happen, but it's really unlikely that NJPW would do a gaijin vs gaijin feud like that. I would have said it's unlikely that NJPW would turn their tag team champions and one of their most established gaijin stars into a bumbling idiot hypnotized by Maria. But look how that turned...

Re: Adam Cole's expected NJPW tenure

So this update pretty much says that Meltzer's initial report was false (I believe he said immediately after the Bullet Club angle at the PPV that Cole was going to be a junior). Really not sure where he's going to fit in, especially with Omega being the Intercontinental Champion. He could be in th...

Re: Adam Cole's expected NJPW tenure

You need strong babyfaces for the heels to get some kind of heat. Of course ROH has none of that so the heels are wildly cheered when they beat up half the roster. Nowadays, this "shades of gray" bullshit might as well just mean "I'm a shitty booker who can't even get the basics right". I don't buy...

Daddiego for sure. I want to say Cheeseburger, but it's undeniable that he always gets a good live reaction and actually sells some merch, which is more than can be said about some others on the roster. I've been bored with The Addiction for a while, and have not once been interested in a Kazarian s...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I should have clarified. Not like heel heat, but storyline heat. I meant more that there's a heated issue now between Bullet Club and ROH, because they violently attacked refs, announcers, security, etc. There's a heated issue between Bullet Club and Lethal because they repeatedly superkicked his un...

Re: Official Global Wars/War Of The Worlds 2016 Super Thread

Interesting points from Naito that actually have more truth to them than him just bragging in character. I was really surprised that in the autograph signing there was a very long line for Naito non-stop all night, but Okada, Tanahashi, and even Liger never had more than one or two people waiting. A...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

This kinda epitomizes my problems with this promotion right now. This is from Kevin Kelly's little blog on the ROH website. This blog clearly aspires to be Jim Ross's old Ross Report from the WWF site in the late 90s-early 00s, except that would usually have one or two interesting notes every week ...

Re: Official Best In The World 2016 Thread

I like the main event, because the match last year was really great. They should have been building Briscoe better as a singles competitor in the last month or so though. Especially with the lack of new TV in coming weeks.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

The one instance where I would like to see Angle in ROH is the one given above. Come in as a surprise to help ROH defeat the Bullet Club. Use him in half the program, like a 3-4 months at most. Use him in a few tags and a couple marquee singles matches against Cole or Omega or something. After the B...

Re: Official Global Wars/War Of The Worlds 2016 Super Thread

Main event sounds good. Since this is the angle they're going with this needs to be how things go for a while. I'm not a fan of Page joining BC. He needed to be elevated on the card. Taking out the Briscoes is a great step in that direction, but it seems like he'll still be overshadowed by the Bucks...

Transitional champs. Highly doubt they will be champs after BITW. Was about to type the same thing. Transitional champs to The Bucks so we can keep War Machine as babyface challengers sounds about right. (Though I don't foresee any crowd booing The Young Bucks.) Probably right but it doesn't help a...
