My only gripe, though, would be we could use some variety at that point. In terms of style, body type, etc. Some additional heavyweights (not fat dudes like BCB) would be good, too. I often wonder why Brian Cage or Chris Dickinson haven't found their way to ROH. They'd be interesting competition against guys like Jay Briscoe, Moose, Jay Lethal, Roderick Strong, etc.
hey man,bcb is amazing!
:lol:

but yeah...i would love too se a hoss division in roh..they need 2 or 3 more big guys

Hey man, not knocking BCB entirely. There's a time and place for chunky dudes in pro wrestling. Look at the Dudleyz or Bam Bam Bigelow. But those guys also did some impressive things in the ring and gimmick-wise.

But yeah, "hoss division." Definitely. Brian Cage vs Moose or Cobb vs Elgin. Fucking why not?

I'm really hoping ROH can bring in Ospreay, that would be fantastic.
RevPro would have been my first choice, but as you say they have just made ties with WWE and I don't know if that has made any "friendship" with Rev Pro difficult or just impossible. I do wonder if Progress might be the best option considering there has been a lot of buzz about them recently it be a good idea to go with them as well as PCW.

Either way having a strong relationship within the UK would be important right now considering the we are currently entering a start of a boom period which I don't think we have ever had. We nearly had it with Jody Fliesch, Doug Williams and James Storm etc.

Yeah it certainly would be, I think he could have a similar experience to Zack Sabre has had at PWG.

What would be the advantage in partnering with any one particular UK promotion over another? It's not like any of them have any exclusive access to talent or contracts or anything. Seems like it would be a limiting move without any real benefit for ROH.

Personally I don't think there is, but ROH might hampered in who they can work with due to our agreement with NJPW. The landscape of wrestling is really changing as you have both the WWE and NJPW and trying to cultivate relationships with many promotions around the world but there is only so many that you can work with for example, NJPW has a strong relationship with CMLL where as WWE supposedly has a stronger relationship with AAA. WWE has a stronger relationship with Evolve, NJPW has a stronger relationship with ROH, So it wouldn't surprise me to see both the WWE and NJPW to try and do the same within Britain considering the buzz that it is currently getting and creating.

WWE does not have anything close to a stronger relationship with AAA, they wanted Hijo del Fantasma/King Cuerno for the Crusierweight tournament and AAA said no for example.

Strong might have been too emphatic but I have read/heard that they have built bridges.

It was just announced that Dominion will be Jay White's last show with New Japan before he begins his excursion in the USA with ROH.

Depends how long he will stay for really, if he is hear for a full year then yeah put the time in, but if he is simply here to get minutes and exposure for a few months their is no point in investing a real feud with him.

If he is going to stay for a while give him a feud, Silas Young would be perfect for his first feud, he can make him look good and can carry the bulk of the promos. If he is going to stay for a few months then put him in matches like they are doing with Kamaitachi.

Observer:
Jay White’s debut should be in a few weeks as a full-timer. I expect he’ll get a push as booker Hunter Johnston was high on him when he saw him on his Japan trips.

The idea of A hoss devision would be pretty new. Njpw is big on heavyweights and Roh haa alot of guys that could be broughy in and some guys that could be made singles and really shine in that devision. Guys like Cage Cobb and even if they split war machine they could shine individually. Moose worked Samson Walker last year and Walker also worked Roddy he would make a good addition as well.
I think all of the change may be a good thing.

Observer:
They were hoping to get Dragon Lee for the 7/16 show in Philadelphia. I don’t know that it was to do a dream match with Kamaitachi, but that’s what I’d either do or build up to. But Lee’s knee injury will delay him coming in, at least based on what the promotion has been told. We’re also told that Dragon Lee still wants to work that date. They’ve opened up relations with CMLL and the first CMLL talent will debut on that show

Katsuyori Shibata has gotten his working visa and he’ll debut on the 8/19 Death Before Dishonor PPV show in Las Vegas which will include much of the New Japan crew

Hopefully the talent coming in will actually already be involved with ROH talent in New Japan by then and the matches will actually help with stories progressing in both companies, which if Dominion is anything to go by then I reckon that will be the case.

I guess that Keith Lee, Shane Taylor and Jason Kincaid have signed deals and will be working full time. . It would appear that they are replacing Strong, Moose and Alexander on the roster . Also the addition of Lio Rush , Jay White and Kamaitachi should provide some much needed new blood. All in all I would say ROH is still in good shape talent wise.

From what we can ascertain, there's been discussion about the company signing him to some sort of deal similar to their Legends deal, which would allow the company to release merchandise, etc. using his likeness. It may be that they had Stardust, etc. material coming out from a third-party (a Mattel action figure, for example) and offered him a deal so legally, they can move forward with that. There's been no talk of Rhodes returning as a full-time performer as he's seeking to work specific, big matches on the independent level and we've heard he's already being represented in Hollywood for potential acting world.

Nice introduction! Quite a lot of things in there I didn't know about him, taking into consideration I don't speak Japanese and consequently don't know if the commentators ever talked about his past.
