The Era of Honor Begins - February 23, 2002
http://www.thecubsfan.com/2017/03/26/th ... or-begins/
In this, the first episode, we review “The Era of Honor Begins” from February 23, 2002. The event (as well as the podcasts) features some highs and lows, from one of the most offensive opening segments in wrestling history, to one of the best first main events in wrestling history, this show is memorable. Your hosts go into the background of the company, and talk about the progressive and regressive aspects of the company at the time. It’s a fascinating look at how far ROH (and wrestling in general) have come since 2002, and it also features a completely unnecessary jab at Joe Gagne, so check it out!
Round Robin Challenge - March 30, 2002
http://www.thecubsfan.com/2017/04/10/th ... challenge/
We gave you time to get over your Mania week hangovers but now it's time for the second episode of ThROH The Years! We thank some listeners and use a couple of their contributions, delve into the fascinating world of what Dave Meltzer thought of indie wrestling/ROH/guys like Daniel Bryan 15 years ago, and then review ROH's second show, Round Robin Challenge. American Dragon vs. Christopher Daniels! Low Ki vs. American Dragon! Frank Talent! Talk about human excrement! Hobbes keeps his mic steady and has notes! Three hours of discussion! Come listen to the only ROH podcast that started in 2017 that ends an episode with talk of triple dating Daniel Bryan, it's ThROH The Years!
A Night of Appreciation - April 27, 2002
http://www.thecubsfan.com/2017/04/23/th ... reciation/
Nearly 15 years to the day later, ThROH the Years covers Ring of Honor’s Night of Appreciation Event. Trevor and Matt cover a show that features a whole host of debuts, from Donnie B. on commentary to AJ Styles, to a debut of a long-running tag team rivalry. Also Donnie B., the announcer, makes his debut. Frank Tallent returns, Spanky’s pants and match fall apart, Eddie Guerrero gives an emotional farewell, and Donnie B. debuts on commentary. Did I mention that there’s this commentary guy named Donnie B.? Check it out!
Road to the Title - June 22, 2002
http://www.thecubsfan.com/2017/05/05/th ... the-title/
Matt and Trevor return to review ROH’s Road to the Title! The best show so far? The funniest show so far? We revisit one of the more famous single minutes of indie wrestling in fifteen years!

Crowning a Champion - July 27, 2002
http://placetobenation.com/throh-the-ye ... -champion/
ThROH The Years makes its Place To Be Nation debut! Each episode Matt and Trevor review a ROH show starting from the beginning. We open paying tribute to our old father Cubs and our new dad, PTBN/PWO, before reviewing Crowning a Champion! The literal hottest match in ROH history! A ton of blood! A lot of clipping! Multiple banana-based segments! We hope you enjoy it.

Scramble Madness - November 16, 2002
http://placetobenation.com/throh-the-ye ... e-madness/
Matt and Trevor are here with the tenth episode of ThROH The Years! This time we review Scramble Madness, a hidden gem of early ROH. One of the best Scramble matches of all time. The mysterious marvel of Matt Thompson. Was Gabe Sapolsky a time traveler? Oh, and AJ Styles vs. Christopher Daniels and Bryan Danielson vs. Doug Williams. All of our Deep Vein ThROHmbozos (#dvthrohmbozos) need to get in the machine and listen to this one.​

Final Battle 2002 - December 28, 2002
http://placetobenation.com/throh-the-ye ... ttle-2002/
Your fifteen-year-long wait is over! Matt and Trevor are here to not only review Final Battle 2002, but to give their first ever Honor awards for the year in ROH. Finally you can know what to think! We review a show that is surprisingly good in some ways, but surprisingly disappointing in others. We also take a look back at the Observer awards from 2002 and see how ROH fared. Fix your teeth Leroy, we’re ending the year on a high note!
2003

Revenge on the Prophecy - January 11, 2003
http://placetobenation.com/throh-the-ye ... -prophecy/
For those who listen to tonight's show, yes, I forgot to mention how ROH kept it's 13 show streak of man on woman violence, BUT IT DID HAPPEN AND I WILL RECTIFY IT NEXT TIME.

Matt and Trevor are here to celebrate ROH’s One Year Anniversary Show. Battle of the Briscoes! Danielson/Joe 2! Paul London amazes! The infamous ROH Riot! Low Ki eats cake! It may be close to three hours, but we reviewed a four plus hour DVD, so we’re proud, and you will be too if you listen!

EVERYONE needs to listen to the hosts absolutely rip apart the first 20 minutes. It's miraculous that the main event managed to overshadow the absolute worst first impression possible. Utter fucking irredeemable steaming hot garbage.

Hit Squad vs. CSC just gets more riveting with each event. Can't believe it didn't win Feud of the Year.

The Quebrada is the technical name for the in-ring springboard moonsault. I don't wanna hear it called the Liontamer when you reach 2004.

So, big announcement, with episode five the podcast has joined the Place 2 Be Nation podcast network! It's feed will be our new home from here on out and it's really cool to be joining so many other podcasts I listen to. The show will remain entirely the same, so that's either a threat or a promise, depending on how you feel about the show! We get into this near the top of today's episode but this has nothing to do with Cubs who is one of the nicest guys for giving us a place to exist in the first place. THANK YOU CUBS.

Oh, and we have our fifth episode up today! The Years makes its Place To Be Nation debut! Each episode Matt and Trevor review a ROH show starting from the beginning. We open paying tribute to our old father Cubs and our new dad, PTBN/PWO, before reviewing Crowning a Champion! The literal hottest match in ROH history! A ton of blood! A lot of clipping! Multiple banana-based segments! We hope you enjoy it.​

Lads, any chance of a Best match Tracker as you go thru the events, not every match but the obvious standouts? thought of it when you mentioned preferring Ki vs Daniels vs Danielson to the iron man title match?

cheers.

I'm not sure if this is something we'll do but I could talk about it with Matt. I think what is more likely is on the final show of each year maybe we'd do some end of year awards and sum up some of our feelings and favorites that way.

Good riddance to Modest. Have no use for "unbuttered toast" bullshit mediocrity like him, Kozina, Maritato, etc.

If this keeps going through late 2005, I'd be curious to hear comparisons of Sapolsky's booker-centric commentary compared to Vince McMahon and Eric Bischoff's in the '90s.

It'll definitely be interesting to see if we can spot more little easter eggs of Gabe alluding to more inner workings while on commentary.
