If my earlier post in this thread offended anybody, I sincerely apologise. .
The videowire all seemed pretty good, giving some nice hype to the matches. A little early on I think this might get hard to get into, because I don't know how easy it is going to be to be personally into the feud, with just these little updates and what not. I know this company is all about wrestling, but like, I'm not really going to care if match after match is just two guys competing for the fun of it. Not in BTB anyway.
Edwards was probably my favorite out of all the promos. I really, REALLY can't wait until you actually get to a point where you post shows.
Loved the Videowire, Shock. I was wondering how you'd handle ROH's approach, but you seem to have pretty much nailed. Loved the stuff from the HoT, although having Christopher Daniels present and not speaking seems like a bit of a waste. That stable has so much potential right now, it will be fascinating to see what you do with them. Even without the World Title, they still have two of the best wrestlers in the world and the T.V Title going for them, not to mention the beast that is Elgin and the underrated Truth. I hope you give them a big push.
The Eddie/Davey business looks good, but should be handled with extreme care. Just like ROH do in reality, you could have a truly spic feud on your hands right here to rival some of the very best that they have had, and that's saying something. It's not likely to be a blood feud like Generico/Steen or Aries/Jacobs, but a Nigel/Dragon or, to use a feud that most jobbers who book here will be familiar with, a Bret/Owen could be possible. I thinking holding off on their first ROH Title match is the key though. You've got plenty of challengers for Eddie as a face, so there's no need to waste Davey on him right away. Can't wait to see your take on it though.

They will defend the titles against ... THE BRISCOE BROTHERS! These two teams collided for the first time ever back on February 26th at the 9th Anniversary Show in Chicago Ridge, IL, and we will see a dream rematch in Toronto! We will try to get comments on this scheduled match from both duos as soon as possible!
- In the latest videowire, The All Night Express challenged The Kings of Wrestling to a match on "ROH Revolution" weekend. Here is the Kings' response:
Spoiler for The Kings of Wrestling Accept The All Night Express' Challenge:
*The video begins with Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli stood in their locker room, dressed in casual clothes, with Claudio holding a cup of coffee in his hand*
Hero - Well, well, well. All Night Express. I'm gonna tell you a short story, if you don't mind. Y'see, after coming back from the gym, me and Claudio went on the ROH website, and we saw that you two boys made a challenge to us for a match on "ROH Revolution" weekend. And when we saw this ... we laughed. A lot. Hysterically, if you will. So Kenny, Rhett, we've got good news, and we've got bad news. The good news ... is that we accept your challenge.
Claudio steps forward.
Castagnoli - And the bad news ... is that we accept your challenge.
Castagnoli smirks before stepping backwards, as Hero laughs.
Hero - Y'see, All Night Express, it seems like you think that after we lost the ROH World Tag Team Championships in Atlanta, we've become an entirely different tag team, and not in a good way. Well let me assure you right now, that this is the SAME Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli, The Kings of Wrestling, that were ROH World Tag Team Champions for almost an entire year! This is the same Kings of Wrestling that defeated every single tag team that stepped into the ring with us! And most importantly, this is the same Kings of Wrestling that beat YOU TWO back in Chicago Ridge on February 26th!
Chris calms himself down, before continuing.
Hero - And that same Kings of Wrestling ... will see you on "ROH Revolution" weekend. Be careful what you wish for...
Hero and Claudio spin around and perform their elbow/uppercut pose.
Castagnoli - Because you just might get it.
*Hero and Claudio both smirk as the camera fades to black*
- After the challenge was officially accepted, ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette signed the match for "ROH Revolution: USA" on May 6th in Dearborn, MI!
- Grizzly Redwood has signed on to appear at "ROH Revolution" weekend on May 6th and 7th in Dearborn, MI and Toronto, Ontario!
- After the All Night Express/Kings of Wrestling match was confirmed, The Bravado Brothers went to ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette with ROH cameras watching. This is what happened:
Spoiler for The Bravado Brothers Go To Jim Cornette:
*The video begins with Jim Cornette stood backstage with The Bravado Brothers*
Cornette - What can I do for ya', boys?
Harlem - Jim ... with all due respect, I think there's some sort of conspiracy that has been plotted against The Bravado Brothers.
Jim slowly removes his glasses.
Cornette - What the hell are ya' talkin' about?
Lance - Jim, I don't know if it's your doing, but we haven't been given any chances recently. We've tried to get ourselves some matches, but every time we do, you shoot us down.
Harlem - And every time, we have to go back to our grandmother and tell her that Jim Cornette didn't accept our proposal, and she becomes very distressed. We don't want that to happen again, Jim.
Cornette shakes his head.
Cornette - Fine. Today, you can go home to your grandma and you can tell her that you've got yourselves TWO matches, on May 6th and 7th on "ROH Revolution" weekend!
Harlem and Lance both grin.
Both - YES!
They high-five each other, as Cornette sighs.
Cornette - And if ya' want, I'll tell you who you'll be facin' right now.
Both brothers nod their heads.
Cornette - Right now, we've got one team with a match for Toronto but not a match for Dearborn, and we've got another team with a match for Dearborn but not a match for Toronto. Coincidentally, these two teams hate each other's guts, so much that I'm not allowin' them to go near each other at all on the weekend, so I'm gonna give them matches with you so they can blow off some steam.
Lance -(Looking worried) Who?
Cornette - Well on May 6th in Dearborn, you're gonna be facing THE BRISCOE BROTHERS...
Harlem and Lance's eyes both light up in shock, looking anxious.
Cornette - And then on May 7th in Toronto, you're gonna be facing THE ALL NIGHT EXPRESS!
Both Bravados groan simultaneously, as Jim smirks.
Cornette - Give my best wishes to your dear grandma.
*Cornette walks away with Harlem and Lance both looking petrified as the screen fades*
- Talent to appear at "Supercard of Honor VI" in Chicago Ridge, IL on May 21st will be announced soon!
Ken Doane To Debut At "ROH Revolution" Weekend - Matches Announced!
ROH is pleased to announce that Ken Doane has signed on to make his debut at "ROH Revolution" weekend, which takes place on May 6th and 7th in Dearborn, MI and Toronto, Ontario!
Doane is one of the brightest young free agents in professional wrestling, and when contacted by ROH officials, he jumped at the chance to become a part of the best professional wrestling company in the world today.
On May 6th at "ROH Revolution: USA" in Dearborn, MI, Doane will compete in his first ever match in a ROH ring against "The Littlest Lumberjack" Grizzly Redwood. Then, the following day at "ROH Revolution: Canada" in Toronto, Ontario, Doane will face another bright young ROH prospect, Adam Cole! We will get comments from Doane in the next videowire.
Ken Doane comes to ROH on "ROH Revolution" weekend! Tickets are sold out for "ROH Revolution: USA" in Dearborn, MI, but there are still a few tickets left for "ROH Revolution: Canada" in Toronto, Ontario! Don't miss your chance!
Another good Newswire, Shock. Even though it's happening in real life, it's quite hard to go with any other challengers than The Briscoes right now, and they're awesome, so it's not like I'm going to complain.
ANX/Kings should be great. I can definitely see King & Titus getting their biggest win so far now that the Kings don't have the belts.
Poor Bravados. They're a pretty good team, but it looks like they're going to be used as nothing more than momentum gatherers for the Briscoes and ANX.
Wasn't expecting to see Ken Doane in this thread. I know he's been floating around on the independent scene for a while now, but he hasn't exactly been setting the world on fire. I could see him being brought in mainly because of his involvement in OVW back in the day when Jim Cornette was in charge. Grizzly and Cole are two decent opponents for him, as they can make anyone look good. He'll probably beat Grizz and lose to Cole.
I'll be honest with my two cents here, I am not a huge fan of spreading things out for a long time and taking some near five pages to get a show up, however, that is just the way I feel. Then again this is ROH and that is how things are done in ROH I just hope once shows start that they get more frequent and it won't be so seldom.
So far so good, just speed up the process with shows please.
I'll be popping in every so often to check it out. Best of luck.
New match for Toronto. Not a big one, just adding to the card...
Bennett vs. Redwood In Toronto!
ROH officials have today signed a new match for "ROH Revolution: Canada" in Toronto, Ontario, and that match will be "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett squaring off against "The Littlest Lumberjack" Grizzly Redwood!
These two have faced each other before on ROH on HDNet, with Bennett picking up the victory. But now, there is a lot more story behind this match. Bennett has recently been embroiled in a rivalry with Steve Corino, who has become a new man and has tried to inspire young talent such as Redwood, who Corino has claimed he admires.
"The Prodigy" could well use this match as an opportunity to send a message to Corino, who will be facing TJ Perkins on the same night. Bennett will inevitably be the favourite to walk out of Toronto with the win, but could Redwood snatch an upset victory?
Mike Bennett vs. Grizzly Redwood at "ROH Revolution: Canada" on May 7th in Toronto, Ontario! Don't miss it!
This is actually a fairly smart match. Redwood is the ultimate underdog, and Bennett is a prick who's going to try and humiliate him, thus pissing Corino off even more. Plus, if anyone can make Bennett look good, it's probably Griz
