What was the promo?

Pro Wrestling Sheet transcribed some of it

quote:

Ring of Honor wrestling is a stalwart of pure professional wrestling in an industry that’s monopolized by ‘sports entertainment’,” Starr begins in a promo released earlier today.

Starr then implied Jay Lethal’s “Black Machismo” character was disrespectful, before calling out ROH and their parent company Sinclair Broadcasting for being a corporate propaganda machine.

“Did you think it was some kind of cute publicity stunt to let the little Jew boy get a flight to Israel to wrestle for your championship?!” Adding, “I’m not wrestling for your championship because I’m a Jewish kid in Israel, I’m wrestling for your championship because I’m one of the best independent professional wrestlers on the f*cking planet!”

As we previously reported, Starr is set to face Jay Lethal in the main event of Israeli Pro Wrestling Association’s Passover Bash in Natanya on April 21.

“On the morning after April 21st, you will have to wake up to your worst nightmare,” Starr claimed. “You’ll have to wake up to the fact that your championship is now represented by a progressive Jew named David Starr!”

I guess the question is what alignment Start has within IPWA (is he a going concern?) because with his (comparatively modest) jab at Israel for “not respecting civil rights” I wonder if he’s a political heel

David's doing the job anyway, so it all works out.

Jay Lethal will be ROH's longest reigning champion and literally no one will care.

He already is Joe's one world title reign was 645 days, nobody else had 550 total through one or more combined reigns. Lethal's at a combined 689 (262 days on this reign already and his first was 427)

I'm guessing they just don't want Starr to get Sinclair pissed off to the point that they pull Lethal and thus a non-refundable plane ticket goes in the shitter.

I was just looking over the stats a moment after I posted that.

686+ combined between 2 reigns and over 41 defenses.

compared to Bryan Danielson: 462 days over a single reign and 38 defenses.

"...you won't be able to walk, if you're always worried about crushing the ants beneath you..."

I saw Mayu vs Kelly Klein was booked for MSG... ugh. Not exactly a barn burner. Can we not move on at this point? Three title defense matches in a row with the same challenger. Are there really no other women to match against Mayu?? What was the point of bringing her in if you don't have anyone legitimate to contend with? Why have women at all if you can't book more than two at a time?!

they have one because current culture in wrestling dictates they have to have one but they never really put any effort behind booking it, much like they put no effort behind any of their other stories.
