Makes me think Cody and Daniels will be having a stipulation match of sorts.
I really like the first round marches. They are fresh and without top stars or BC members. Lethal is the only MEventer so we'll have a young challenger for 2018.

And yeah, I'm sure they'll end Daniels vs Cody rivalry with a special match, just like they did last year with Colt and Lethal at the Reloaded Tour in Duluth (Ringmasters Challenge).

That reminds me, we didn't have a GBH this year, did we? That sucks, should have just made the TX triple shot a Glory By Honor weekend and skipped SotF or done it this weekend.

Has ROH ever done a classic Texas Death Match? That seems like it would fit nicely, besides being in Texas and all.

Vinnie Lasagna (where are you Brada?) has got to drop the ax as an intimidation prop. It's fucking dumb. I hate it. It's defies any and all believability. He's a shitty wrestler with an equally shitty gimmick.

Jonathan Gresham has a tall task in front of him in making this guy, who is 100% useless in the ring, look good. If Gresham pulls this off he should be nominated for sainthood.

I . . . actually was more or less going to make a post that resembled Mojo's above. I'm really disappointed in what the Kingdom's ultimately become and how little Marseglia brings to the table. The group has no presence, no cohesion, and no interesting direction (months after O'Ryan's return). I was hoping this would be the platform to give Taven a near main event role, but I think it's time to just do away with the stable now.

Gresham looks like he's in that spot because he's the guy who can best buoy a Marseglia singles match.

Unrelated, that Young Bucks vs. Castle/Lethal match looks very enticing. Should be a really interesting weekend. One year, ROH will eventually figure out how to use the tournament most effectively. For example, do the tournament after each DBD to set up the main event of Final Battle or continue doing it in November to build for a firm date at SCOH. The Royal Rumble and the G1 prove that this is an extremely effective tactic.

No All Star Extravaganza this either. That light summer really fucked everything up.

I think they could alternate between DBD and ASE every year since both are in late summer/early fall time. I think no ASE rhis year had more to do with GW happening. Could combine GW/ASE I suppose from here on out. Have the PPV be Global Wars: All Star Extravaganza do the old Champions vs. All Stars Match there plus have some "all stars" of NJPW.

I think they could have pushed it to July or August, there was only two shows in July and August and I get it a lot of their top guys were in the G1 Climax but They could have ran smaller venues in the east coast or went to the southwest with CMLL Talents.

No Field of Honor was dumb, so they couldn't get Brooklyn go to El Paso with CMLL wrestlers and put Chavo on the card.

It would actually be a really good idea to do Champions versus All Stars during a NJPW tour considering how weak the undercard usually is for that show.

Speaking of Champions vs. All Stars, do you think we'll see another while the six-man belts are in play?

Heck it wouldn't even have to be exclusively ROH Champions vs. ROH All Stars. Coukd do like the ROH World & TV Champions and the IWGP HW & IC vs. Four "All Stars" of ROH
Say they did one this year like that Cody, Okada, Tanahashi, King vs. Dalton, Lethal, Daniels, Scurll would he an interesting match to see how Bullet Club's Cody could co-exist with CHAOS' Okada or seeing Tana & Okada team together. See how BC members Cody & Scurll react to being opposite one another and if Daniels could just put aside being a prick for one night.
