Very smart to get some fresh CMLL names for the Texas shows.

Still waiting on that Rush debut.

I will agree with you on Jay Lethal. My dark horse is Matt Taven.

Take that WWE. I wonder how NXT draws that night. I think it's great if both draw well.

I'd rather see WWE draw terrible houses so they eventually improve their ridiculously horrible product. Because it's been late era Dixie Carter TNA bad.

In fairness, it's not like that is a big house for ROH. It might even be time to look for a bigger venue in San Antonio.

Isn't this a larger venue than the old San Antonio venue?

Well if the figure above is correct, it is, by 304 seats or so. But for the effort being put in, I don't think it's a great figure.

I suppose so long as the venue is cheap to run, they might come away from this with some money in the bank, which ultimately was the goal here.

The surprise has to be Jacobs. He's wrestling the day after for Wrestle Circus in Texas.

Bringing back Low-Ki at a house show would be fucking hilarious!

It's a reference to something that was in a NewsWire either towards the end of the Gabe Era or the beginning of the Pearce Era where they dropped hints that a mystery wrestler was ready to "return to his o0ld stomping grounds." Everyone obviously assumed it was Low Ki and it was almost certainly supposed to be but Ki then signed with WWE instead so the whole thing was dropped without another mention, so from then on, on the old official ROH board, every time they teased a mystery partner, the joke was that it was Low Ki.
