I really thank everyone for their interest in this. With the NHL just rolling out their 100 greatest players over the weekend, it reminded me that I was glad to get the ball rolling on this.

Look, is ROH adored on the internet like it used to be? I get the critics throwing their jabs at the company. But you look back at the 15 years of this company and I feel that there is a lot to celebrate and go back and rewatch to encourage people to participate in this.

It is quite possible that without ROH and Manhattan Mayhem II, I would have quit watching after the Benoit murders. Attending that show kept me a fan when I was ready to pack it in.

I started watching when SBG put it on syndication. I know I missed the likes of Punk, Danielson, McGinness and Jamie Noble (awesome) as champions, but seeing guys like Richards and Steen fued was great, so I have no regrets. I do hope they make the most of 2017 to become a more dominate promotion.

Ranking these were/are a bit harder then I thought it would be. Top 10 was easy and it's just getting them in the right order. It's the wrestlers from 11-20 that's been the most difficult to rank.

Knocked my list down to 65 with a pretty good cross section of all periods of ROH history. Now, the fun of weeding it down to 50.
