So in a bout of boredom I decided to look at the ticket sales to every ROH event announced which allows you to view tickets remaining through Ticketmaster, and it appears that almost every single upcoming event sans two will inevitably sell out.

The only events I can't see tickets remaining for are the WOTW Michigan stop and the South Florida stop.

The only events that probably won't sell out are Concord - we're four days away and essentially the entire upper decks are available, but there's still over 1,000 seats sold to the show, maybe even 1,500 or so - and the 16th Anniversary TV taping which is the worst selling upcoming event. Even events like Pittsburgh, Columbus, all WOTW stops are selling better than it. In fact it appears less than 250 tickets have been sold, but I guess they haven't announced anything for that show so we'll have to wait and see what happens.

Strong start to the year so far. There's also a UK tour expected in the first half of the year which hasn't been announced yet too, plus Honor Rising in Japan.
Is Honor Rising happening? I didn't see it on the website, and I'm not sure when New Japan would have time for it due to their own tour of Australia.

Should the Bucks end up sticking with Cody, what's the temperature on this one?

Is it me or does Mandy Leon run the ropes awkwardly? I mean this in strictly an observational way, but to me she seems like she's protecting her chest. If she's falling forward she can use her arms to cushion the blow. Whereas by coming full force off the ropes she leaves herself exposed in the chest area and enhances the risk of blowing out an implant. I'm not ripping on her. I feel she has improved immensely in the rest of her work, but man, the running of the ropes looks weird.

A lot of it comes down to technique I feel. ROH Dojo student Stella Grey runs the ropes the same way and her body is more proportional than Mandy's. It is very Kelly Kelly like.

In the basic act of running yeah you are right.

I feel like most women have issues running the ropes. Wwe, Impact, ROH, doesn't matter. Most of them seem to run up to the ropes, pause, turn, hit the ropes with their back, then bounce off. It looks like it's happening in slow motion. Alexa Bliss and Brandi Rhodes both do it nearly every time.

To me it's the most noticeable difference between how the men and the women actually wrestle.

Yeah, those are two good examples as well. Just really happened to notice it today when watching the match between Rayne and Leon.

Since he may be retiring, think there's a chance we see Mike Quackenbush have a final match or two in ROH this year? He already wrestled Jonathan Gresham last month, but I think that match and Quack vs. Flip Gordon would both be fantastic to see.

15 days away from Manhattan Mayhem and no talent announced or matches for this card.

Seems odd and with ROH in Japan the week prior, seems like there are going to be some rapid fire announcements in the days to come.

This is the sort of thing that makes it impossible to get excited about most shows. There's just nothing to be excited about.

They don't really need to announce anything because the show is already almost sold out. New York is going to ROH events to attend ROH events. They know the roster, they know what to expect, ROH do need to announce some matches to sell those last couple hundred tickets but truthfully its not that big of a priority. The show will sell out regardless.

Big @ringofhonor news this morning - international stars signed for #ManhattanMayhem. The names will be revealed today! These are names that have never competed in NYC for ROH before. Any guesses? #WatchROH

An announcement about an announcement will only make me check ROH's site more than usual.

So far Soberano Jr has been announced but Riccaboni said talents so we'll see what happens. Dalton vs Rush for the ROH Championship likes spice it up a little.

Maybe i missed something.... but is it me, or is ROH way behind on DVD releases? There last released was The Sept 22nd show Death Before Dishonor. So there are like 5 months behind on Dvds? I ordered all of the most recent DVDs on 1 september, and in the past 160 ish days only 4 new DVDs released?!?

I assume they are building up for HonorClub and the VOD service, but still. Guess i'll just be wait.
