-Isnt the Sinclair deal saposed to make the company more money?:
How could they have flown Samoa Joe, Rocky Romero, and Ricky Reyes from California (along with the other fly ins) every show without a TV deal but not fly TJP and The Bucks with one? They dont or are unable to get the top talent, their roster fucking blows... They lost TJP, Young Bucks, Davey, Generico and Kenny King withen a couple month span. Look at DGUSA/Evolve's roster, look how many guys are getting pushes and getting/gotten over in the last couple years, Gargano, Calihan, Taylor, Ricochet, Uhaa Nation, Samuary Del Sol, Tony Nese, Jon Davis, AR Fox, they now have Generico part time. How many guys feel fresh and exciting in ROH? Probally just Cole, Elgin and O'reilly (and a lot of people don't even like him)
-The ROH main event scene feels like the 09 WWE main event scene:
in PWG, DGUSA/Evolve and expecially Chikara anyone can main event at any time, there is so much varity, every main event is something unique. In ROH it feels like its always the same guys and its damn near impossible to break into the title picture. Just like in 09 when Cena, HHH, and Orton were in every main event.
-The titles are a joke:
Remember Danielson's and Nigel's reigns? They would defend the title against almost everyone and it made the title feel like a big deal, after all those sucessfull defenses it was a huge thing when it actually changed hands. Now not only is it almost never defended but the hot guy never gets to hold the thing. Tyler's reign was way to late, Roddy's was way to late, and Davey's was way to late. To me it feels like a lifetime achievement award, "this guy was hot at one point so lets give him the belt." The tag titles arnt much better, WGTT is a far cry from Aries/Strong in 06 and Briscoes in 07.
-The tag division is a joke:
Ever since ROH lost The Kings last year the division has slowly fallen apart, they split up the Wolves and Future Shock, stopped booking The Young Bucks, ANX is no more, and they even teased us with TJP teaming with Red, and worst of all was when Shane Haste/Mikey Nicholls won that mini tournament, wrestled on IPPV, were built up as a hot new team... And then they never wrestled there again. I get its expensive to fly guys from Austrilla (however its spelled) but why even have them wrestle on PPV if your not gonna be regulars just to say this is not what we are gonna give you? There are 4 regular teams in ROH right now... Nobody wants to see WGTT, Coleman and Alexander are good but nothing to write home about, Briscoes are great but have done it all, and the Bravado's are fucking awesome. Thats all they got.
-The atmosphere is way to serious:
I really hate how every show feels like "lets be serious no fun allowed", I really feel like someone hates goofy and comedy guys, there is nobody with any personality (with a few exceptions) Its trying way to hard to be a real sport or MMA, and thats how its viewed, as a fake wanna be MMA promotion.
I agree with most of this, but it's ludicrous to think ROH, who are now canceling shows because tickets don't sell
, bought multiple Australia-US plane tickets for a tag team. Those guys were here on their own, they weren't flown in obviously.
Have you guys seen the recent names for their upcoming tag tournament?
Cedric Alexander/Caprice Coleman (a tag team ROH hasn't been able to make legit in almost a year)
World's Greatest Tag Team (enough already)
Young Bucks (this happens after ROH stops using them, good job you idiots, now you bring back jaded wrestlers)
RUCKUS AND SABIAN (holy shit! Team Botchamania makes its ROH debut!)
Fucking just awful.
