I was sitting at my computer right with the timer counting down and couldn't get any tickets when Ticketmaster went searching.

ROH might have screwed themselves by selling 12,000 tickets in presales because that's just a plain ridiculous number to hold before public sales.

Though congrats on them selling the most tickets for a non-WWE pro wrestling show since the peak years of WCW.

yes, they screwed themselves by selling 12,000 tickets to Madison Square Garden during presale

Last night's show was pretty bad tbh.

- Haskins was stuck in a crap match with BCB.
- Flip looked like he hosed up his leg pretty good.
- Luchasaurus was kinda cool at first because it was a big dude doing flippy poo poo but he sucks pretty bad. And Delirious needs to stop working matches (or booking) because he almost killed TK O'Ryan.
- The Kingdom gimmick is really stale at this point. Taven and O'Ryan actually look pretty good these days but they're both kinda plateauing in this and Vinny sucks rear end.
- Bandido and PJ Black was really botchy. PJ Black does cool poo poo and looks smooth but he's a charisma void.
- WOH match only got over because two women were doing ridiculous spots on a nothing show. It was fine for what it was but they're killing themselves for absolutely no reason on this show.
- Lethal-Castle was quite good but there was just something off about it. It's hard to explain. It just felt like another match instead of a ROH Title Match.
- All throughout the night the tone of the commentary was a bunch of dudes just loving off and it made me care about the show less. Riccaboni is real good but Colt, Caprice and Kenny King were just abysmal.

The good:
- Eli Isom is really tremendous for how short of a time he's been wrestling.
- Juice/Finlay and Best Friends looked a league above everyone else.
- The Cobb-Shane Taylor TV title feud has me interested. Taylor is kinda underrated but he still needs to keep dropping more weight.
- Villain Enterprises is a rad stable.


They still need a few more signings to fill out the roster and they need to give more guys opportunities to climb the card as a singles worker. It's not hopeless as there's definitely some good talent here, but it's gonna be a slog for a few months until they really figure everything out. They'd benefit a lot from someone like Angelico right now. They need a strong identifiable babyface.

https://www.rohwrestling.com/news/u...s-knee-injuries

quote:

It is believed that Sabin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during a six-man mayhem match at the international television taping in Atlanta Saturday night. Sabin began clutching his knee after executing a super hurricanrana on Gordon. He was unable to finish the match and was helped to the back.

Gordon injured his right knee during his match against Tracy Williams at Honor Reigns Supreme in Concord, N.C., on Sunday. It is believed he will be out of action a minimum of four weeks with a possible MCL sprain. Gordon came up limping after hitting a running dropkick in the corner. He tried to continue, but his knee gave out and the referee stopped the match. Gordon was helped to the back.

Don't have anything going on tonight so I might order the show, but I'm wavering. The card seems like it should be good, but ROH has come off just kind of bland for me whenever I've tried watching it the past few years. How are you ROH regulars feeling about it?

It should be solid but probably not anything special. That said, if youíre gonna buy it, you may as well just sign up for Honor Club for a month since itís the same price and you could watch other poo poo too.

I watched an episode of Ring of Honor TV for the first time the other day. lmao at the advertisements. There were three breaks, the first and third were for medicare advantage plans and the middle break was for reverse mortgages. It seems they think the average viewer is over 65, which doesn't track with what I see in the audience. I suppose there are some folks who miss the days of Steamboat and Rhodes and all that, but it seems more like existing ROH fans are more likely to be former attitude era WWF or ECW fans - so dudes in their 30s and 40s.

They're probably just predatory side companies for Sinclair execs.

Announcing the Cobb/Ospreay match before the New Japan Cup is finished and saying the ROH title match is the main event over the iWGP title is probably going to do wonders for the New Japan relationship yup

Well, they said Cobb challenged him and didnít announce the match as official but obviously theyíre not going to do that if the match isnít going to happen.
