It looks like after the past TV. Tapings that there are trying to elevate Jonathan Gresham in someway or are they trying to give Cedrick Alexander some type of mean streak? The tapings as of late appear to me to be all over the map.
Who's Rob Viper ?

I think the Vegas anniversary show main event slot is cursed now.

So serious question. Would ROH be better off with Young Bucks signed exclusively, or AJ Styles making sporadic appearances?

Good question. While I think the core ROH roster is strong enough to carry business throughout, the benefit of having AJ Styles in the fold is that you could pop a house if you needed to pump up ticket sales. He made a show feel bigger just by his presence on the card.

At this point, there's very few guys on the indy scene who would have that effect. There's only a few guys I could think of that might have a similar (but lesser) effect: Chris Hero, Ricochet, Zack Sabre Jr. and WIll Ospreay might fit the bill. It also seems unlikely that any of those guys work for ROH in 2016.

While I think the Young Bucks may have worked better in the AJ Styles role (sporadic appearances, but feels like a big deal when they show up), the recent WWE talent raid makes you wonder if the Bucks would have been snapped up too if they were available. So I think it's fortuitous that ROH has them locked in now, since they can actually build around them as opposed to using them when they need them.

But what this necessitates now is that the TV has to build even better to their big events - fewer draws means the stories need to be compelling in their own right and not "Wrestler X will face AJ Styles at (insert event) on PPV!"

You really can't hinge running that date on the possibility of their being a playoff game for either team (at home) months down the road.
