I'm not the right person to give you a overwhelmingly positive review of new york. its loving expensive doing basic poo poo for no reason other than personal greed and the places to live are getting smaller and more expensive. its extremely convenient though because you can get/do anything at times where some entire cities stop functioning.

Poll 100 wrestling fans and see how many of them can name Lethal's world title vs which one JYD held without looking it up. If JYD gets more correct answers you can shoot me in the head.

Poll 100 random people and ask them what they think of when they think of wrestling and if more of them think of the prestigious Ring of Honor championship over Hulk Hogan and the Rock N Wresting era you can give me a noogie or something.

i thought the point was about which guy is more well known. In any case that argument is for poo poo sniffers who purposefully sniff poo poo in my opinion

I'm honestly not sure what the argument is anymore, it seemed to morph from "who counts as a Black World Champion" and then sort of meandered all over the place before I saw someone who appeared to be comparing the popularity/awareness of regional territories in the 1950s-1980s in smaller towns to the popularity/awareness of Ring of Honor in New York City in 2019 and that seemed absurd as hell to me but who knows, maybe people just want to make suicidal dares or call people pieces of poo poo, I'll bow out.

I think Akuma and Hellblazer made the real point which is no matter how many black champions we can remember it's never going to be a good enough number

Someone could probably do a much better write up than me but Lethal, with the help of Truth Martini, spent over a year having extremely good TV title defenses. He professed himself to be the “true” Ring Of Honor world champion. This prompted a feud with then-world champion and recent vocal homophobe Jay Briscoe to unify the titles, with Lethal winning in the end. He goes on to have even more amazing matches and promos as the world champion, including a MOTYC with AJ Styles at Final Battle.

It’s not even funny how molecularly different the milquetoast Jay Lethal of today is from the Jay Lethal of ‘14-‘15, who by all rights was among the best in the world of the time.

Yeah that and the Lethal/AJ match were something real special. Like say what you will about Jay Briscoe as a person (and I certainly will!), that was a star making year for him as a singles guy and I wish he still was putting on matches and promos like that.

The Lethal /O’Reilly TV title match that went broadway was also a standout match. The ending where the audience was chanting for 5 more minutes, to Lethal refusing him, to Briscoe coming out and offering Kyle a world title match right then and there was so loving magical.

If you couldn’t tell this is maybe my favorite era for any promotion.
