Re: ROH Fans, will you buy another ROH iPPV again?
The thing about ROH in the past was that they were losing money. ROH was always losing money which is why Cary was vigoriously looking to either sell the property or expand its audience to pull in more money. It's one of the reasons Gabe got canned to begin with, he knew how to book for ROH's hardcore audience and there is nothing wrong with that, however he didn't know how to draw outside of them which in turn hurt business. I don't know if they're losing money now under SBG but if they aren't then they're more financially stabilized now than they were before.
Their iPPV model needs to change, either outsource to a team that can do the job effectively or go the route of immediate digital downloads, which would be easier on their production. There are options out there, ROH just have to pursue them.
