Legit draws in ROH

Post by BradPTBN » Wed Nov 09, 2016 8:17 pm

Pulling out a (possible) component that we talked about in the Young Bucks thread. Even if this isn't scientific because we don't have exact figures, who would you qualify as being legit draws?

I'll start with two recent ones and also throw a note out that its a given the NJPW guys are historical draws (even if leveling of now):

The Young Bucks
AJ Styles

Of course some of the biggest guest names are legit draws - which I think is something that factors in with:
Kobashi
Liger

For other draws, Matt Hardy in 2005 was kind of a big deal, and his run in '13 and '14 were always at the top. Is there anything quantifiable that Matt was a draw?

How did Joe or Punk do in terms of business when they were on top? I would guess Joe specifically did really well.
