It's the #1 Aries dream match excluding WWE. Truthfully I wanted Jericho vs. Aries at WM34.

AA is worlds better than 80% of the current ROH roster.

If they're smart he's already booked.

It's too bad 205 live has a dark cloud over it's head.
A "dark cloud" implies that there are forces beyond WWE's control for the lack of momentum behind the cruiserweight roster.

Truthfully, I don't know where I would like to see Aries today. ROH doesn't really need another aged guy taking a spot; their roster is full of veterans that should be getting over the younger talent.

Maybe Evolve could make an exception to their age strategy. Aries could be a mid to upper card great face their to get over talent like Ethan Page, Austin Theory, and ACH.

Also, it's a shame that we're never going to get Cole vs. Aries. Though we could now see Scurll vs. Aries, the former I believe supersonic called this generation's Aries, which I won't disagree with.
Page doesn't need Aries' help getting over. Theory does. ACH... probably doesn't.

I like the Scurll-Aries comparison. As for the Cole vs. Aries match, it's possible that some smaller, non-aligned indy that seems to have a ton of money to throw around (WrestleCircus, NEW) could set it up before Cole winds up in WWE.

Observer:
Regarding Kenny Omega coming in as U.S. champion, that is at this point scheduled for October. There is no match set right now. A name he’d like to face if it could be worked out would be Will Ospreay. The next PPV date is 9/22 and that would be a shame not to have on PPV, but New Japan usually runs late September

There is a tv taping in Philadelphia on October 20. I would imagine that would be the date that is being alluded too.

Chuck Taylor is booked for the next set of tapings. I hope this means he'll eventually sign a contract with ROH.

Unless I missed it, is Trent booked for them as well?

War Machine are, too. They're facing off with Gresham & White.

Davey available for bookings for a limited time.

Austin Aries vs Davey Richards II? I'd watch it.

I hope he can pop up in PWG before he's done. Would love to see him against ZSJ, Riddle, Scurll, or even Chuck

Again, I'd prefer to see him in EVOLVE. He would probably have some fun matches with Lee, Riddle, Rush, and ZSJ too. Davey just can't do his treacly, putting over, motivational speaker tour business that he did in 2011.

Hope he really finally does achieve in becoming a paramedic.

Just realized I want KUSHIDA vs. Davey for the TV Title as a one-off farewell for him at the next PPV.

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he pops up by the end of the year.

Davey's threatened to retire two dozen times, I believe he even has said he's retired a couple and then comes back a couple months later. I wouldn't mind them bringing him back, and the one thing nobody can hold Delirious down on is his ability to put business before personal issues.

Davey Richards is another hand ROH could use.

Him and AA would be a shot in the arm.

Scoop:

GFW considers no talents are exclusive yet, and they have 90 days to opt out. Expect at least 2 substantial names to follow Richards out.

I believe the only truly persona non gratas are Ki and London.

I hope Eddie Edwards comes home to ROH. That would be amazing.

I would guess EC3 and Eli Drake could be on the way out.
