I imagine his role will be sitting in the corner so that coaches can occasionally stop practice to say, "Don't be like that fucker over there!"

BJ Whitmer vs. Jimmy Jacobs is the best cage match ever and they have the best dumbass wrestling spot ever. Maybe they can teach the bums in the WWE how to have a proper blood feud.

BJ Whitmer is the best in the world right now at the stall heel promo. It seems easy to do but there's a balance you have to hit with and booing Whitmer was one of my biggest draws of some of the most recent ROH shows I've been too. Elias Samson is going for a similar thing at the NXT house show I went to and did not have the pacing to do it all and he had a guitar as a prop.

Is that in addition to Steve or is he bowing out to be there for Colby? Because I have to think a teaching team consisting of Albert (who I feel is underrated as a power wrestler), Norman Smiley, Steve Corino and Nigel will be a very good one indeed.

Steve decided to leave a week or two before Colt got buated.

He hasn't been under ROH contract for quite some time but he'd still work he occasional show, including jobbing to Lethal in a main event earlier this year

These breakdowns always occur between Elgin and ROH. It's been happening for the past few and it's nothing new. No big deal. They'll make up again soon enough and he still works for ROH's partner

Nigel is not an in ring competitor and it's no big deal. It's common for older wrestlers to join up with WWE as trainers or agents. In Nigel's case they seemed to change their minds and decided to go with him doing commentary instead.

Wake me when top ROH wrestlers actually defect to WWE. This whole thing about their current world leaving sounds so laughable.

Yeah not only are all three of those guys really drat good but if nothing else you'd think they'd want to keep NJPW happy especially at a time when they're exploring running their own NA shows.

Seriously. How hard is it to just send a quick e-mail saying you're not in the plans for now but we still value your presence, and might use you in the future?

Agreed about the young lions. That roster is paper thin right now outside the main event scene.

Dont take this as a defense of ROH, but a wrestling company being dickeheads to a wrestler they perceived as wronging them is like the most normal thing possible.

ROH has been done with Elgin ever since ASE6. The only reason he came back/hung around was to get in New Japan. Hell, the last two shows he worked were "joint" shows anyway so idk what exactly was announced other than making it official.
