Re: Ring Of Honor

I think (depending on contract situations) that Cole is winning. I believe he's signed through the end of the year. He was supposed to win the title at Final Battle '14 before the injury, so they likely want to give him another run with the title. Kyle takes the fall...maybe they do a Cole/Lethal ma...

Re: Evolve (WWNLive)

I don't get the "how it would work" talk. At worst NXT talent go 50/50 with non-contracted talent and at times non-contracted talent has gone over contracted talent. It's the same as the "ROH guys always job to the NJPW guys" narrative. The top NXT (& NJPW) stars usually win & that's what people re...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Does anyone else find it weird that NJPW announced ROH dates for Japan and 14th Anniversary but didn't announce anything for what has typically been the NJPW/ROH tour in New York/Toronto? It could still reasonably be on as Best of Super Juniors doesn't start till June with Invasion Attack being ear...

Re: TNA 2015: It still exists, kind of!

TNA's problem is they don't manage expectations with their business partners, talent or prospective fanbase. When they were booted from Spike, the easiest angle in the world was to play the underdog company that knew it was in a worse spot but was determined to learn from its past mistakes and rebui...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Given the sheer amount of guys they are likely going to fit in on the show Anniversary has the potential to be a real clusterfuck. Or it will be similar to the 2014/2015 ROH/NJPW joint shows, which were 8 of the best shows the company has produced in years. I'm stoked that they finally found a way ...

Re: WWE NXT 2015

A lot was made of Adam Cole's physique when he came back from shoulder surgery, too. To the point where there was a thread created on The Board in late summer with pictures from his May return and something to the effect of him being on the KO/Chris Hero diet. The worst part was that by the time the...

Re: Best Gimmick

I'd argue that the initial reaction to it shows that The New Day is not the best gimmick at all...the performers made the best of it and were able to get a terrible gimmick over by making it ironic.

Dalton Castle wins this for me, followed by Los Ingobernables Naito.

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

The time lag this year should actually be the best it's been in a long time after Final Battle. Last year Final Battle was on 12/7 and they didn't tape TV until early Jan. At the latest, the 12/19 tapings will air the first week of Jan (maybe earlier, but they typically do a Best of the Year episode...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Imagine getting positive mainstream press from Rolling Stone and then complaining about the content of said coverage. In fairness, because most people will have no idea what you're talking about... Kevin Kelly tweeted the Rolling Stone article out. Then someone from outside the company (@Turnbuckle...

Re: WWE NXT 2015

My point is they can likely keep selling out small venues without paying more for top ROH talent. They'll have Zayn and Itami back and they can "make NXT stars" out of guys like Gargano and Ciampa. If they pay more for NXT guys, that will ultimately risk throwing off the lower card main roster pay a...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

Two other names that come to mind for fly ins are Mysterio and Ricochet. If they announce a replacement ahead of time, Mysterio is probably the only name that's near a Styles level that would interest people in the PPV. His fee is too high for ROH to use regularly, but if there were ever a spot to s...

Re: Ring Of Honor 2015

If Styles can't go who could possibly be the replacement? Unless they import an different guy from Japan I can't imagine who it would be They've actually got a bunch of options. They could bring in a big-name or spot appearance guy (Aries or Chris Hero being the two that come to mind) or, as you po...

Re: WWE NXT 2015

I do believe we will see some people actually sign with WWE, but I also believe they will need to start negotiating deals where either the NXT contracts are higher or their is a build in time frame for a call up. Unless the WWE sees a guy as a can't miss main roster star, I think we'll continue to ...

Re: NWA World Championship Wrestling on WWE Network

This honestly makes me think about subscribing again after more than a year away. I know it's a tired argument, but I really don't understand why they don't add the old territory stuff on an episodic basis every week at the same time. Having random on demand content almost assures that nobody is goi...

Re: WWE NXT 2015

So, has anyone confirmed whether Aries was backstage and didn't appear or was the photo of him being there completely fake?
