    Shockingly bad
    That's sad, because I dig Vinnie. I'm a mark for the "Horror King" thing when he used to loose balloons from under the ring like Pennywise from IT.

    Hopefully things change for the better now that Marty Scurll is the head booker

    If they were willing to do this for him, it does make me puzzled as to how far this idea went down the pike for the EVPs of AEW before AEW was a thing. Maybe they weren't interested at all. If they didn't offer it at all to them and decided to do it now...that's...weird.

    I doubt we'll ever know what exactly happened there. You have three sides there between the Elite, ROH, and NJPW. The first crew sans Cody won't stop spinning conspiracy theories to Meltzer, the second crew are delusional, and the third crew haven't and will never talk on the subject.

    Right. That's why I wonder if The Elite were really interested if the proposition was actually broached to them. Something makes me think that if ROH offered it at some point, it would have been leaked (to the detriment of ROH, so leaked by The Elite).

    If it wasn't offered to them but was to Scurll, it reeks of desperation.

    Is that why Scurll showed up in NWA long enough to have a slice of Dave Lasagna and then hasn't been back?

    Nick Aldis showed up on the last ROH show so they're working together.

    Omega told Meltzer that he was stopped by customs when he flew over to Japan, and said the customs agent told him that.

    Harold had to come out and be like not only did they not do that, but they didn't even have the power to if they wanted to.


    People who work on visas in Japan say the most likely thing is once Omega did that interview in Tokyo Sports quitting the promotion New Japan pulled their sponsorship of his visa and he tried to enter the country with it anyway and that's what got him in trouble.

    So Scurll is head booker? ROH basically need to part the cheeks and work with whoever they can at this point, right? ROH, NWA and TNA becoming their own territory system with NOAH thrown in is the play. Keep talent fluid, there's enough there in the 3 companies to work with.

    Conspiracists.

    Joe Koff and Carey Silkin are delusional.

    Looks like Fightful has reported that Cody was offered a similar position prior to leaving ROH.

    March 14th we'll see the return of XAVIER. The dude has been retired since 2011 and has accepted Jay Lethal's challenge. I was never a big Xavier fan but I only saw a handful of his matches. The love he gets, hit or miss. It'll be interesting to see if Xavier still has what it takes.

    Something about Jay Lethal being on this crusade to beat ROH "Legends". He's defeated guys like AJ Styles, Daniels, Low Ki, etc. but Xavier I guess being the 1st or 2nd champ was high on his list as well. Still odd....Like I said it never seemed like I read too many fanboys of Xavier. Shit even in the EWR game he had like a 55 overall lol.

    Yeah, his status as a "legend" is very circumstantial. I was always confused by the choice to have him beat Low-Ki, especially when you had Christopher Daniels right there.

    - - - Updated - - -

    And then Samoa Joe took him out right around the corner and basically made ROH. He's such a footnote.

    Yeah it's like being the first ever ECW champion. Nobody remembers that Jimmy Snuka was their first champion.

    My fantasy Ring Of Honor Card:

    PCO vs. Jeff Cobb for the World Title
    Bandido vs. Dalton Castle for the TV Title
    The Villain vs. RUSH
    Lethal & Gresham vs. Dragon Lee & Kenny King for the Tag Titles
    Flip Gordon & Brody King vs. The Briscoes

    Glad I got that out

    That looks 1,000% like any actual Ring of Honor card, to be honest.

    Yeah man I actually just finished watching ROH Year 3 the other day. The problem is that there are soooo many to choose from that I tend to stray from wrestler specific and just buy the ones that are "compilations". Either from their store or Highspots.

    I could really cash in from the looks of things, but I'm reluctant to part with 2006. I have the first show of the year and every show through to the end of the ROH/CZW feud that lasted most of the year. Epic shit in there. And Danielson's title run too.

    I have the Death Before Dishonor DVD with that wild ROH v. CZW cage of death match. I like this DVD because they recap the build of the feud so you get to see a bunch of wild shit. I only remember reading about the feud, didn't get to see anything until about 6 years ago. First ROH DVD I ever ordered.

    It’s a great match, that. The whole feud is right up there as possibly even my favourite in wrestling. It was brilliant.

    Everything about it was great. Jim Cornette was a fucking goldmine during that build. Chris Hero, omg, if people aren't sold on that guy today that's alright because he was a gem once upon a time. That guy had all the potential in the world to be a top tier player in a major promotion. Just so many awesome moments and it felt REAL. It felt like what it was, a straight up wrestling promotion taking issue with a local rival that was all about razorwire and death spots. I think that's why Corny was the perfect "authority figure" type. He hated that CZW shit for real and they hated him even more lol.

    The stretch from Manhattan Mayhem in 2005 to Glory By Honor in 2006 was fucking outstanding. Summer of Punk, ROH vs. CZW and the Bryan, Nigel and Aries/Strong simultaneous domination of the three divisions. Then in terms of matches, Joe vs. Kobashi, Bryan vs. Nigel, Bryan vs. KENTA and Cage of Death and the famous Dragon Gate 6 man were all different and spectacular. The stuff that they managed to do in 16 months, for an independent, crazy. I'll probably get the streaming service for a couple of months if they upload that era, so great.

    And nearly 15 fucking years ago! Where does the time go?

    I’m so glad I have 95% of that stretch on DVD.

    And such a great point about that being the perfect use of Cornette.

    Apparently, ROH has said they're overhauling they're Honor Club(or whatever they're streaming service is called) and including the entire back catalogue. So you should be in luck.

    Just read on the front page, Flamita - Never saw the guy wrestle, but he sounds like an excellent Tex-Mex restaurant - Injured himself in a match at Free Enterprise, ROH's last show, and he'll be out for an indeterminate period of time. He'll be replaced by PJ Black in select matches.
