  1. Indeed, criminally underrated are "The Super Smash Brothers", I miss them in PWG
  2. http://www.wrestlinginc.com/wi/news/2018/0419/639116/update-on-locker-room-fight-before-roh-steel-city-excellence/ Its a work brotha
  3. I thought it was quite a nice homage to her given she was on the 4th ever ROH show 16 years ago. I'd rather that than Kelly Klein being the "Brock Lesnar" of women in ROH. Honestly though I don't think, sadly WOH, or womens wrestling in ROH will ever take off they still seem to think of it as an afterthought, midcard filler. Theres other indie promotions that are way ahead in booking women as prominent and legimate contenders to the men on a card than ROH. This is coming from me and I used to quite like them using Lacey, Mschif, Daizee Haze and Sarah Del Ray back in the day. Awesome Kong was originally meant to be in AOTF in the place Necro Butcher took....I don't know where I'm going with this, other than ROH never seem to want to quite pull the trigger on the womens side, the only women on the roster who appears to be booked in a "meaningful" storyline is Brandi Rhodes (by proxy of Cody)
  4. This is purely speculative but it would appear Adam Page maybe splitting from Bullet Culb also. I say this, I'm not sure what attire he wore last night, as "main event gear" have previewed his latest attire they have made for him and it distinctly lacks any reference to Bullet Club, as in logos or fonts: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgypsUVAhug/ They've done things like this before I recall them posting matching Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin attires before they reformed MCMG (not like anyone didn't see that coming a mile off mind)
  5. Sal Rinauro is part of "Future of Honor" despite being a former tag team champion, and regular in 2005/2006 and again in 2009/2010? WTF?
  6. Does anyone have a good link/Photo of the entrance t-shirt the Golden Lovers wore?
  7. Whenever I see him on interviews or podcasts, on particular the "meaning of mature" podcast he did a few times with Ethan Page and Josh Alexander, he just sounds like typical testosterone filled jock. All he really ever talked about is how much he lifted and his sexual conquests. He just seems like a douchebag. I've seen enough screenshots of his texts and messages on twitter when the whole situation came to light to suggest he did try and cover things up and was unfaithful to his wife with one of his students, and bullied said student into keeping quiet both about him being unfaithful and what was allegedly done to her by others
  8. Suprising they resigned him given the black mark against his name in the US at the moment, he's lucky to still have an career really
  9. I think the Bucks will join Kenny and split from the Bullet Club, if anything the Elite sells merch, along with the Bullet Club, seems the best way to keep both factions together but now apart.
  10. Thought Mandy Leon might get a contract, not necesarily convinced its all on her wrestling ability
  11. Plus factions in NJPW are slightly different than WWE theyre not always storyline driven or at "war" with each other. Wrestlers can be loosley affiliated to a stable in NJPW and can often wrestle stablemates in the name of competition, for example, its common from Okadas matches to have no real affiliation to the fact he is in Chaos, same when Nakamura was a member of Chaos. Its not like they come to the ring to interfere or accompany stablemates in matches. I think this is were maybe Bullet Club do differ and why were having this discussion, they act like a western stable and do accompany and interfere and it is storyline driven, I think this where it could change slightly, maybe lay off the western shenanigans but still have them affilaliated under a Bullet Club banner. Then maybe if needed in ROH use shenanigans if that is what is needed. To me personally they might need a little freshening up, interested to see where the Kenny/Cody dissent goes, but I dont feel they are by any means done or heading the way of nWo or DX just yet
  12. Is it not becuase of how big Bullet Club are and Jay turning them down that has illicited this reaction - he's the first as such to do it in NJPW, if Bullet Club weren't "big" or "meaningless" at this stage then there would have been little to no reaction to him turning on Kenny, or the reaction when Kenny stopped the beat down on Ibushi. It could be argued its the reaction becuase its Kenny, but his status in Bullet Club and the reaction in both situations still make them very very relevent. And of course it would affect Merch sales, you telling me nWo shirts sell aswell as now as they did in the late 90's, they still sell but no where near the same numbers, a faction/wrestlers quickly fades in wrestling when theyre no longer booked/in the lime light!
  13. I prefer the previous/current TV and Tag belts massively
  14. I'm not sure these days it's that ROH don't want to sign people but more people not wanting to sign for them. Its evidently not "the place to be" anymore, as evident by some of the names that have left or gone for a WWN contact instead in recent times. I like Gresham but it just feels a little consolation prize to me after O'Reilly/Rush/Dijak not resigning and Keith Lee choosing WWN instead, think they'd have carried on booking him as and when had they not been turned down by other talent recently
  15. fair enough I was not aware they wrestled there (although I am aware of the promotion mainly through Alex Reynolds solo stuff prior to the Beaver Boys) and spellchecker got me with the Curtis I just don't agree being somewhere for 18 months is coming out of nowhere especially in wrestling
  16. not really, people being signed without ever being on the indys is surely coming out of nowhere? like say Curtis Hawkins and Zack Ryder back in the day off the top of my head
  17. Bates still came out of nowhere. His age is the key factor here. He may have briefly been on the UK indy scene, but he's 19 years old. For all intents and purposes...that is "coming out of nowhere"...and why would young talents come out of nowhere to sign with ROH? Oh...I don't know, because they're a globally recognized brand... Bates hasn't come out of nowhere if you follow UK indys at all. known of him for a good 18 months coming up 2 years, same with Pete Dunne. ROH are recognised but how much of that is through the current product or the past? Evolve and Progresses link up with WWE perhaps for a young wrestler is a much more attractive proposition? it's very telling at the minute, look at the list of good young talent leaving them, who've they signed recently, the Hardy's, Bully Ray? really? I just don't think ROH has an identity outside of the NJPW link up, Delirious doesn't seem to know what to do with half the roster, and books more old school "ROH names" in prominent positions, maybe it's the network wanting their name value I don't know, but there certainly seems to be a glass ceiling for the young talent ROH "creates". I'm not pretending to know anything, surely the name leaving ROH implies something though? it's always telling when good people leave a company in numbers in any walk of life. I've worked for companies that have been great for years and then for whatever reason - change in managers, profit, things change, good people leave, the company is no longer the company it was, reputation amongst potential new employees is poor
  18. Yo...literally who the *Censored* ever said that? Can you read? I can, you were implying young wrestlers can come out of nowhere and be signed by ROH (Tyler Bate being the example you used) I was suggesting why would they? for one they don't come out of nowhere if you follow other "lower" (better) indy promotions and two really what's the attraction of ROH other than the NJPW link up?
  19. I would have agreed during Gabe's era 2002 - 2008, they "created stars" but not now, they "discover" people that promotions like CZW/Beyond/PWX/AAW have been using for a while and then sign them up and don't have a clue how to use them, hence they leave, such is the case with the likes of Dijak, Rush and ACH. ROH cannot be creditted for creating any of these guys - tell me the last truly homegrown indy wrestler that ROH created? Cheeseburger? Rhett Titus?, Will Ferrera? as for Ricochet I think it's more a case of him not wanting to sign for ROH and stick with LU & NJPW. Its very telling how many and who is leaving ROH and not necessarily becuase its WWE related. Sadly they are just not at the forefront of Indy wrestling anymore or pioneers like they were, it's seems for indy wrestlers it's no longer the "place to be". There's a whole world of Indy wrestling out there creating more stars than ROH, they just profit off "lower" promotions hardwork. And why I'm earth would Tyler Bate sign for ROH now when he's NXT bound? the only attraction for working with ROH these days is their link up with NJPW
  20. I forgot to add to my post, that the fanatical 2004 - 2006 ROH fan that I was, where I followed the message board results & bought every DVD religiously is made up for Daniels, always felt he should have got the belt at the height of the prophecy angle or maybe when he came back to take on CM Punk (but I totally got why it was Gibson that dethroned Punk) he was always the best ROH legend that never won the belt so im very pleased for him
  21. but the funny thing is there to most older indy wrestling fans ROH is now seen as mainstream and uncool, it's a shadow of its former self - PWG took over as the indy place to be, and dare I say places like Evolve, AAW and Beyond is where indy wrestling is at its best along with PWG and Progress and ICW for UK. and I posted the predictable Kazarian double turn the minute he joined Bullet Club, another thing about ROH these days they rehash the same old storyline
  22. that and theres maybe been a shift in fan base for ROH, they attract a more casual fan these days I suspect
