Should be a worthwhile tour to get on DVD. You UK fans are always hot crowds so wrestling companies are motivated to give you good shows.

I'd like to know how ROH will be working with Rev Pro for Summer Sizzler the night before. Scurll vs. Mysterio is already booked and I might buy tickets to that on top of my tickets for ROH the following night.

It'll be interesting to see if ROH seek out more UK talent for this tour after the success of Scurll in ROH. No free agent springs immediately to mind, but I'm sure there are some out there.

Poor Liverpool fans, they are getting Dalton-Marty again. I mean, it's fine, but they had the same match last year in Liverpool.

The Bully Ray vs. EVIL match could be a good slugfest.

They have announced some random matches for Liverpool and Edinburgh but not a single one for London, do you think the London show will be the most importat one? Last year it made sense because London was the Last show, but now it's the First one. But, on the other hand, I don't see Edinburgh getting a big-awesome card.

Those shows feel like a mistake if you ask me. The CMLL dudes aren't moving the needle in any way and the only people who might (Rush and Dragon Lee) aren't there, ROH is ice cold right now, and the target audience knows that the New Japan crew will be exhausted after the G1. If you add the fact that the tickets are pretty damn expensive, I can see those shows not doing too well.

I don't think many people will not buy tickets because this show is right after G1
I was in the front line when we battled page 15

Yeah, it's post-G1 but they could use some Jr's like KUSHIDA and Hiromu and some heavyweights like LIJ and maybe Omega/Elgin/Okada.

Plus, you have ROH's roster and some British talent from RPW. I think this could be a great show. But yes, tickets are way too expensive, more than last year.

I don't disagree with your analysis of ROH being cold and the CMLL talent provided not moving the needle, but historically the thing to do when your promotion is cold has been to go overseas to markets that rarely get them. The UK rarely gets official ROH shows (and with that appearances by guys like Lethal and the Briscoes), they rarely get the bigger-name NJPW talent, and they rarely (if ever in recent memory) get anyone from CMLL at all. I think the shows will do well no matter what.
