Another one. Was expecting a Three Way with Bobby Fish. Lethal and Silas always deliver, but I feel like Lethal is going to get the win here, and Silas will only get the "big clean win" on a VOD show, just like it happend in 2014 with Kevin Steen.

Glad to find out I'm not the only one with this observation.

Which is a terrible gimmick. In his promos he will often come across more as a chimpanzee that Jay trained to wrestle and speak English than he does like a human being. How do you think 2007 Mark Briscoe- or even 2011 Mark Briscoe- would react to constantly being referred to as "The Sussex County Chicken?" I'm willing to venture that he wouldn't react particularly well to it.
He'd probably be pretty happy to find out he gets 10 times the reaction doing karate without having to kill himself doing shooting star presses to the floor.

Did Page whip Kazarian at the TV tapings or something? Yeah this stipulation is way out of left field.

Well, now that you mention it, after the Cole-Page match at ROH TV (the Philly tapings), Page used Todd Sinclair's strap/belt and attacked Cole.

The last strap match was Mark Briscoe vs Silas at FB 2013. It was an okay match, Has ROH ever done a great Strap match? I was really looking foward to a Street Fight between Kaz and Page.

Strap match is WAY too similar to a Bullrope match which we just saw.

I don't mind the Redneck King Fu. It's more the body movements and the hair and the way he talks.

Right. And look how much good that did him. Like Page, Silas is another guy Delirious has failed to actually push because he just goes and undoes any big win he gives him.

Road to Best in the World in now availabe on the website! I don't know when I'll watch it because the card looks weak as fuck. They even have lowered the price. The VOD cost 9.9 instead of the usual 14.99:

- Hangman Page & Cody vs The Addiction
- Taven vs Bully
- Coleman vs Lethal
- Young Bucks' Open Challenge
- The Rebellion vs Dalton & The Boys

Plus, here we have another confirmed match for the PPV:
Dalton Castle and the Boys looking to pick up a six-man tag team win against the Rebellion heading into their ROH World Six Man Tag Team title shot at Best in the World!

So we're wasting the Briscoes on a match with The Boys on a PPV.

Wait wasn't that the card for the TV taping? So it's up as a VOD?

So Chicago Ridge wasn't a TV taping? And I thought they had called it Windy City Excellence? Total changeup then.

They taped two pre-Best in the World episodes (it's on the spoiler thread). And instead of doing another two episodes, they did the Road to BITW VOD.

Briscoes/Bully vs. Dalton and the Boys official. I can't wait for Bully's pre-match promo about how much he loves the fans and how he does this for them, before making it a No-DQ match. :roll:

You know ROH is no longer en vogue when VoW wants Cody to win here so that he curtails his NJPW bookings.
