Re: ALL PURPOSE NEW TALENT/SPECIAL ATTRACTION THREAD

Advocating is a strong word, it's not like I'm all "SIGN THIS GUY OR ROH IS COMPLETELY RETARDED" and I certainly won't lose any sleep if Ellsworth never appears on ROH programming, but there could be a spot for him as a smarmy undercard heel manager. I mean, I'll take him over Nana never-ending enve...

who cares about that guy?
Better performer than about 90% of the current roster, but no shock you have no respect for the EXCELSIOR OF ELOCUTION.

Seriously, throw this guy as a manager for a goofball heel like Ferrara or whoever else who can't talk, that would work just fine.

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Long text. DING DING DING But let's go back to this. There is no reason that a change of format means that the quality of the storytelling has to suffer. I have explained numerous times how it would be extremely simple to make the DVD/VOD-only shows into shows that, while not essential viewing, ser...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Castle winning is the right move, but maybe they want Cody to be champ until WM Weekend. BC is hot and he's a draw in USA. Oh for fuck's sake, HE'S NOT A DRAW. HE'S STEVIE RAY IN THE NWO BLACK AND WHITE : THE "LEADER" OF THE B-TEAM. ... The Elite is a draw, not Cody fucking Rhodes and the rest of t...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

I think so too, but I can see some merit, financially at least, if they can get Aries and PAC and Bryan, in Cody title matches against them. Dalton really SHOULD win at Final Battle, don't get me wrong. I'm just playing the Devil's Advocate here. He's Cody Rhodes, him vs. any of those guys isn't a ...

Re: Official 'Philadelphia Excellence' TV Tapings Thread (10.20.17)

Eh, I just don't give much of a shit anymore but to be fair, there isn't a ton of ludicrous decisions to make fun of. Don't get me wrong, the FB card looks atrocious (Addiction and their old KRD/whatever horseshit is utter death, Briscoes being wasted on old ECW farts because they so need that rub I...

Re: FloSports Files Lawsuit Against WWN

The $30 price tag most likely didn't help. It was a decent price if you're an avid Evolve fan who's buying every show (and you get shit like Shine and all those lower WWN promotions like FIP and ACW "for free"), not so much if you're cherry-picking based on the card or whatever. Also the Highspots N...

Re: ROH & Customer Service Failure

You know what? Fuck it, this company deserves to be made fun of so let me quickly show you how ridiculously buggy the ROH website is. So I had a ringside membership at some point in 2013 and let it go after a while because I didn't have the time to follow the product during that period. Nothing out ...

Re: My view on why ROH cant get to the next level. **Contains TV Spoilers**

Shhh, Ring of Hospice is perfect, just look at all those young upstarts on top like MCMG (because TNA nostalgia I guess), Kenny King (because he's on some TV show), Bully Ray (because ECW) and two-star Cody Rhodes (because Rhodes). Also this "we kinda don't build contenders, you just "earn" a title ...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

Evolve will be lucky to continue existing at this point. They're no threat to ROH's relationship with NJPW. ROH just rented a 10,000 seat arena, Evolve just got sued by their own iPPV distributor. Maybe not Evolve, but ROH feels more and more expendable to NJPW as time goes by. They're sending the ...

Re: Random ROH Thoughts Thread

With the new partner, most people were hopeful that the means to an end financial precarity would be given a rest. At the very least, the first two items above should have been somewhat resolved rather than having an arguably worse year than last. 'Working the boys' in regards to exposure is someth...

Well, this basho might finally get interesting if Goeido keeps fucking up for no reason. He's still in the lead with 10-3, followed by Harumafuji and a wild Asanoyama at 9-4.

Some mean-ass bouts in the middle of nowhere today.
Same four guys in the lead with 6-1, now followed by four other rikishi at 5-2.

To the shock of absolutely no one, Terunofuji is out with an injury. On the other hand, Sadanoumi is back after missing the first five days.
Not a lot to say today. We now have four rikishi on top at 5-1, then a pack of twelve maegashira at 4-2.

Well, time to sell those DVDs which are collecting dust and taking a bunch of space. I'd rather sell in bulk and in the EU (because no customs bullshit), but I'll consider other offers anyway.
