    Considering both of them went through a table within 10 seconds of each other (along with everyone else) does it matter? Also, I'm pretty sure.

    Has it seriously been since October that a post was made in this thread or am I not finding a newer thread?

    Either way....Dalton Castle getting a World title shot this Saturday against Christopher Daniels is enough to order the ppv.

    I started just making specific show threads since people seem to ignore this one.

    Cody Rhodes is the new ROH World champion. Dalton Castle finally gets gold as he and "the Boys" are the new 6-man tag champs.

    Daniel Bryan has tweeted basically in a little over year he hopes Cody is still the champ so he can take the title.

    It sucks that I do not follow ROH visually. Probably have watched 1 episode in 9 months. It's always on random times for the Fox affiliate, Comet I don't really remember I have it, and I don't have DVR. But I'm aware of what's happening.

    Kenny King as TV champion. Very interesting.

    I'm curious to see where they go with Silas.

    Shows were fun. ROH would be fucked without Bullet Club. With them they're drawing the best they have in their entire history.

    So, that Bubba Ray Dudley injury thing turned out to be a work, huh? Did that fool anyone here? Because I got the sense that it had some people fooled into believing it was actually a shoot.

    In epic news....Dalton Castle is your new World champion. Amazing. Silas Young is also the new TV champ.

    Very happy for Dalton as I feel he is one of the best overall pro wrestlers on the planet.

    Apparently Ring of Honor have sold over 3800 tickets already for Supercard of Honor XII which is a new record for them. Omega, Tanahashi and Ibushi are all booked for the show.

    Who's Dalton Castle defending the championship against? I have a feeling ROH are going to fuck this one up.

    Based on what I know of ROH and after watching Final Battle(having not actually followed in 4+ years), I would guess Jay Lethal or Punishment Martinez. Maybe Kenny King or Shane Taylor. Then again, if the likes of Tanahashi and others are set to perform, there's no reason it couldn't be someone from New Japan...

    Honestly, without pulling from outside of the roster, I don't know if they can have something that feels big.

    I think he means Dalton Castle's title match.

    Psycho I was watching a couple weeks ago and saw they were doing something with Punisher Martinez but I'll be honest I haven't really watched much Ring of Honor in the last 6-7 months to even know if Punisher is worth a damn. The last time I saw him he was a fuckin jobber. Shane Taylor? The last time I saw him he was with another dude and they squashed 2 small tiny dudes.

    Jay Lethal would be cool. Longest reigning ROH champ in the last what 10 years? That's pretty big. I wouldn't mind seeing Dalton and Silas renew their feud for a minute and do a champion v. champion match now that Silas is TV champ.

    Due to Cody/Kenny this will likely be the first ROH show I watch in a while.

    These also announced:

    So Cody vs Kenny is actually happening? I haven't been keeping up. Is control of the Bullet Club on the line?

    I love The Briscoes. They look like they walked out of a Looney Toons bomb explosion all covered in soot and shit. And their match with Lethal and Tanahashi should be excellent.

    And damn, Scurll vs. Castle a chance at being the best title match that whole weekend. It'll be right up there with Styles/Nakamura. And if Styles is working a little banged up, Scurll/Castle might actually be better.

    Looks like the ROH MSG show has been cancelled. I'm not surprised..
    I’m not going to discuss beyond this statement because I am not going to litigate this in the press," Koff said in the interview that was released on Tuesday. "We had a deal with [Madison Square] Garden and they then told us they were backing out after communications from the WWE. We are not able to get any other dates in any kind of discussion."
    Koff continued, "I’m expecting that our lawyers will be contacting all the parties involved and the best we can hope is that we can find a resolution, so we can bring the kind of energy and excitement that ROH and our partner New Japan to a bigger audience and to bigger arenas and to the fans of New York City.
    Guess that settles the earlier discussion about the old McMahon/MSG deal.

    Interesting story going around lately about Taeler Hendrix claiming her ROH run was sabotaged for not sleeping with Jay Lethal.

    Man, that's a damn shame if true. I feel like Hendrix doesn't really have much reason to lie about it. But it's just such a shame because I love Lethal's work. If what she says is true, it's despicable that he would use his pull to kill her ROH career just because she wouldn't accept his advances.

    Also shitty because I always imagined Jay being better than that. Just goes to show you never know.

    I feel like there's possibly some truth to it but the whole "My ROH career was derailed because of it" seems fishy. What career? She wasn't really wrestling, she was just the big titty valet and I believe real life wife/fiance of Truth Martini. I mean Jay was already about 8 months removed from being World champion when she was released so I don't know. This is really the only time in the 17 years of ROH's history I've ever really heard anything like this about Ring of Honor so I hope it was just this one incident.

    Maybe that's what she meant? Maybe she was supposed to start getting ring time and that incident put the kibosh on it?

    She was not married to Truth Martini. And she and Mia Yim have both said that they volleyed hard for the Women of Honor to be taken seriously and got nowhere.

    And Ring of Honor is run by, and full of, scumbags. Always has been.

    I remember seeing a women's ladder match once on ROH tv a year or 2 ago, might have been with Ember Moon I can't remember 100%.

    You're right, she never married Truth but they were engaged.

    Yeah I mean, Rob Feinstein isn't exactly someone with a perfect resume in sports and entertainment lol. But you're pretty educated on ROH, do you recall anything remotely close to this happening? They're pretty good at avoiding scandal, the last one I can think of was the time Jay Briscoe said if anyone was trying to teach his kids something about being gay I believe that he would shoot their ass. Outside of that, it's been a pretty respectable place to work as you don't really hear anyone shitting on the company ever.

    At least with the WWE, scandals aren't exactly something new.

    Wonder if there's any chance they would make it an afternoon show like WWF PPV's back in the day, say 4pm to 7-7.30pm. That would give you 30-60 minutes to get to Barclay's for TakeOver that probably starts at 8pm. I'm sure many would like to see both NXT and NJPW, must be a pretty big overlap of fans there. If I could attend both shows I'd consider going to NY.

If I could attend both shows I'd consider going to NY.
    The shows are going head to head.

    Two downsides for me. 1. I have to join Honor Club to make sure I get a ticket. 2. I planned on going to a bunch of shows but the cost of this and Mania will probably be all I can swing.

    They did. Then NJPW got involved and now it’s happening.

    Expected since that's what they've been doing with Field of Honor and Supercard of Honor. Pity though, would be cool to attend both, it's just a 12 minute cab ride from MSG to Barclays.

    I need to see this before I believe it though, can't see Vince just taking this sitting down. Unless he blows both his quads that is..

    Really want to see New Japan. But I learned my lesson the first time. ROH fans are dickheads and I don't want anything to do with going to another one of their shows.

    my boy is the one with the account, so he snagged tickets for the whole squad.

    He'll also be going to All In, so I get to use his account to watch that bitch live.

    everything's coming up hero!

    Section 212 Row 9 for $103.50. Well the ticket was $81 and the rest is Ticketmaster's bullshit.

    Interested to see what kind of card they put on here. It has to be massive really. For both ROH and NJPW. It's a sold out Madison Square Garden with a huge live gate on PPV on the biggest wrestling weekend of the year. In terms of eyeballs, they have to blow the NXT card away, and we know Takeover events are always epic. Might be a situation where they have every major title between the two companies on the line. Jericho probably works it too. In fact you could probably work it entirely in Japan for the build up, with it being acknowledged as his first non-WWE match in the US in 20 years. Possibly the rematch of the Wrestle Kingdom main-event too, whatever that is? I'm leaning:

    Naito (c) vs. Omega for the IWGP Heavyweight Title
    Cody (NWA champ) vs. Lethal (ROH champ) - Title vs. Title
    Okada (c) vs. Ibushi for the IWGP IC title
    Tanahashi vs. Jericho
    White (c) vs. Juice for the IWGP US title
    Suzuki/Sabre Jr (c) vs. Young Bucks vs. EVIL/SANADA vs. Yano/Ishii for the IWGP Tag Titles
    The Briscoes (c) vs. Page/Scurll for the ROH tag titles
    SCU (ROH 6-man champs) vs. Firing Squad (NEVER 6-man champs) - non-title
    Ospreay (c) vs. KUSHIDA vs. Mysterio vs. Ishimori for the IWGP Jr. Title
    Taven (c) vs. Gordon for the ROH TV title


    That would touch the spot.

    Heard a lot about the Lethal vs Gresham match. It was good, but I wouldn't go MOTYC on it.

    cody/lethal sucked and went way too long, which sort of killed the crowd for the main event. main event was still nuts but you can tell the crowd lost a lot of steam. still great show overall.

    Whats the script with Marty ROH/NJPW/AEW?

    He's the only one that has not been talked about as leaving anywhere, I assume his contract isnt done yet but he has a new shirt with the elite. Seems a bit odd.

    Scurll is still under contract with ROH for a few more months.

    The rest of the Elite crew, minus I guess Flip if you count him, and SCU are in with the start up money mark promotion.

    As for NJPW Cody has outright said he wants to continue to work there. Kenny is World Champion at least until January. Page still wants to go. Ibushi is a weird person so who knows. Really only the Bucks seem like they would be happy never to go to Japan anymore.

    Looks like it. They're all gone from ROH, but aren't going to WWE.

    That’s a big get for them. Although I read that he was involved in a notable programme in MLW and is the third talent ROH has recently snatched away from them after King and PCO. Shame because I’ve heard a lot of good things about MLW and was intending to check it out.

    How crazy is to see that a 50-something year old former Quebeccer is one of the most exciting things going in Ring of Honor right now?

    Wow.

    This whole time I've been calling the dude RUSH with a hard U, then a few months back I'm watching ROH and they called him REWSH and I'm like....wtf? What an amazing talent though an imo a great World champion for ROH.

    But the company is being met with some serious heat right now. Joey Mercury is opening a can of worms left and right, the situation with Kelly Klein, and what about their relationship with New Japan? Seems dead or maybe it's been dead for awhile. The fact nobody has posted about ROH in almost a year, kind of sad.

    What does ROH need to do to pull itself back up to being the top indie promotion in the world?

    I remember this tweet and boy how things have changed in 2 years.

    Whoa, just realized this thread is now in the ENTERTAINMENT sub-forum. No wonder nobody is posting in it.

    I was gonna say Maff/Cobb looks good and Rush/PCO has some novelty to it. Was that tonight?

    Why couldn't they book Crowbar? Don't they know he is roh as roh can be?

    Maneater killed Angelina Love and it was great.

    But she should really train first, before getting in the ring lol


    Also, if Marty would have won the Ladder Match, PCO beating Marty to send him packing would have been a great storyline.

    Matt Taven has got to be the lamest World Champion in American Pro Wrestling History

    Poor Matt Taven. Dude went from World Champion, to jobbing to Rush, to wrestling Vinnie Marseligia in the second match of the "real show" on Ring of Honor's biggest show of the season.

    Opening tag-team match was clunky. Things were going pretty well until Bandito and Flamita botched that double-team, tightrope-walk dive off the rope. Seems to me Flamita's confidence kind of bottomed out after that and things seemed a little "off" right up until the finish.

    Bully Ray Not-Dudley is honestly one of the better heels in wrestling right now. He's still, even after all these years, still a fantastic asshole. It probably helps that he's a miserable prick in real life.

    Bully hit that redhead chick with the barbed wire board and her hand shot right to her forehead after she bumped. Honestly, I thought she was going to get color.

    Haskins beating Bully was the best possible use of Bully. Haskins as some big time upside. He looks like a smaller, less muscular Adam Page.

    Shane Taylor continues to be Ring Of Honor's biggest, strangest success story. In the Big Leagues, he'd be a jobber or an underneath guy, at best. In Ring Of Honor, they continue to push him, have him retain the TV Title over every new, "hot" talent, and the best part is, he seems to continue to improve in every match he's in. Good for him.

    Holy shit, a 56-year old, former wrestling pirate with a glass eye is the World Champion of a semi-major company.

    Good for you, PCO.

    That match with Rush was wild shit. They brought the house down (literally). Those door bumps were pretty damn gnarly. Loved it.

    I wasn't high on Rush losing the title. I get it, PCO is kind of a thing on the indies right now and ROH is doing whatever they can to get interest, POSITIVE interest so they'll throw the belt on the flavors of the month and hope it does something positive for their company.

    I'll be honest, they probably saw Jericho and thought you know what, if that guy can be champion for a company on TNT, why can't we have the Pirate as our champion on a smaller scale while still having a national presence? It's uncharacteristic for ROH to do something like this, Jerry Lynn & Daniels are probably the only other dudes over the age of 40 that I can think of that's been ROH champion.

    Marty should have been the Champion for most of 2019.

    They should bring in Ishii and give him a 8 month reign.

    If they want to be relevant, that is

    I was shocked that PCO and not Marty won, then the next night Marty showed up in NWA so I assume he's either done with ROH, or he's going to be spending a little more time on NWA POWERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    PCO winning the belt before Marty is like if Batista won the belt before Triple H in Evolution.

    At the very last minute, ROH just snuck in the absolute worst, dogshit, promo of the entire decade. from Vincent.

    Shockingly bad
