I actually really liked the Cody match, the crowd being hot for it helped tremendously.

Had a great time at the event, but I was getting pretty exhausted by Scurll/Okada. I definitely wasnĺt into it as much as I should have been but they still managed to drag me in at the finish. The 6 man tag was EXACTLY what I needed after 5 hours.

The crowd was the only thing that made me enjoy that match, it was pretty sloppy

Delirious needs to ousted as ROH booker. Doesn't have an interesting idea in his head. And hasn't for years.

Meltzer doesn't review ROH TV he reviews all Being The Elite.

Watching it live I think it was worth my money. A lot of kind off goofy exhibition matches. I felt a real feeling when Cody had his dog with him. ROH title match was fun until the end. Last 3 matches were all amazing and I don't think people were checked out at all but I was on the floor.

I loved the Cody match. The position on the card and all the older people being in the entrances made me think, just enough to be worried, that Billy Corgan went 'nah my guy Nick Aldis is retaining in some massive clusterfuck'.

All In had a ton of different styles, which is kinda what pro wrestling is ideally. Something for everybody.

Loved the show. Timing issue aside. I thought Page/Janela could have done without the Joey Ryan stuff directly after it and fans had more time to appreciate the spectacle they saw.

It made Page look like a chump. This stuff they have him doing for BTE is dragging him down when he's a great wrestler who could be a near-top dude in NJPW.

BTE has made him a star in months after ROH tried for years. If it wasn't BTE he wouldn't have been in the G1.

He can do fun goofy stuff in their vanity show and still be a top NJPW guy. He's getting an obvious push in Japan and bring carried away by dicks won't kill it. Wrapping up a storyline on their goofy vanity show at their overblown vanity house show makes sense.

Page will never be a top guy, he just doesn't have it. Compare him side by side with Adam Cole. Some guys just have ceilings and thats ok.

Agree on Delirious. ROH is in a weird spot. On one hand it's way bigger and cooler than it's ever been and they're co-promoting a sold out show at MSG next year. It's also by far the most boring part of the loose NJPW/CMLL/ROH/NWA coalition we have now.

Given Adam Cole went through weird bland periods where he lost a ton of his momentum I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean since you don't seem to mean "Adam Page can be a top guy, just look at Adam Cole."

Cole may have been bland in periods but theres never been a time when thinking "Adam Cole? Really?" contrast with well Jay Lethal the current and long time ROH champion and how despite that he just exists.

I have one complaint about All In, the guy behind me was very drunk and spent 20 minutes fantasy booking CM Punk showing up after he didn't appear in the Battle Royal. He also stole my Okada bucks.

Scores of people had this basic complaint about his last two years in ROH.

I was least excited about the Jay Lethal match than anything else before All In, but he really won me over with the "Liz" and Machismo spots, I think what sold me most on it was Lanny on the outside looking like he was having the time of his loving life watching the match.

Penta/Omega was definitely match of the night, it was so goddamn good that my friend who hates non-WWE wrestling refused to take a smoke break until it was over (And then took one after the pinfall and missed Jericho)

Poor Rey Horus though, was on his way to being Rey Mysterio Jr Jr but Fenix has made him totally irrelevant.

I can't believe it took Callis pointing it out but Fenix/Pentagon being like Mysterio/Psicosis is a perfect contrast between the two (Except this time Pentagon has all the charisma and fenix has almost none)

I'm more mad at Cody not being able to drag Aldis up, but getting dragged down by him. Those were the longest 22 minutes of my life.

And yeah I'm more mad about that than Okada and Scurll going 26 because those two went at it at an appropriate pace that escalated to a finish while Cody and Aldis just did things for 22 loving minutes.

I was at Roadblock (not end of the line) live, and I though I would never forget Cody for having a bad match with Sami Zayn. I got pretty close with all the BTE stuff but I guess I was right all along.

It's kinda irrelevant since they went off the air mid-sentance and really didn't have time for anything else. Knox was telling them "Time to go home" like 3 minutes into the match

any truth to the rumor that the long delay after rey mysterio's music started playing is because they told him about the match length right before he went on and he threatened to leave But then ray phoenix said "we're both named rey and that's ok" and it calmed down Reymysterio enough to go on with it. rovert
