RING OF HONOR: THE AGE OF THE FALL!
"Ring Of Honor is the very best professional wrestling company in the world and has been for the past nine years. I've been a multi-time World Champion, I've sold out arenas world wide and I have millions of fans the world over - But the fact that I helped create and mould Ring Of Honor in to what it is today, is in fact the thing I am most proud of in my twelve year career and I am not ashamed in saying that it will forever be my spiritual home."
- CM Punk (2011)

ROH Man Up!
September 15, 2007
Frontier Fieldhouse | Chicago Ridge, Illinois
Four Corner Survival | Nigel McGuinness defeated Claudio Castagnoli, Chris Hero and Naomichi Marifuji The Resilience vs. The No Remorse Corps Best Of 3 Series | Rocky Romero defeated Matt Cross (No Remorse Corps 1 - 0 The Resilience) The Resilience vs. The No Remorse Corps Best Of 3 Series | Austin Aries defeated Davey Richards (No Remorse Corps 1 - 1 The Resilience) The Resilience vs. The No Remorse Corps Best Of 3 Series | Roderick Strong defeated Erick Stevens to win the series for The No Remorse Corps 2-1 ROH World Championship | Takeshi Morishima (c) defeated Bryan Danielson ROH World Tag Team Championships | Ladder War | The Briscoe Brothers (c) defeated Kevin Steen and El Generico
Following the brutal main event, as the Briscoe Brothers were celebrating, a group of rowdy fans began an uproar. All dressed in black with ski-masks covering their face, the hooligan fans began screaming, talking about a "revolution", "the age of the fall" and "project 161". This was not a repeat occurence however, as over the past few events, interruptions from similar members of the crowd would do exactly the same thing. As the Briscoes looked on from in the ring, from behind they were jumped by JIMMY JACOBS, TYLER BLACK and THE NECRO BUTCHER! Accompanied by Lacey, the trio brutalised the popular tag team champions, despite the fact that they just went through one of the most hard-hitting affairs in ROH history with Steen and Generico just minutes prior. The threesome used chairs and even barbed wire to punish the brothers, before they hung Jay by his feet and sent him to the rafters unconscious.

Spoiler for OOC:
I'm back with another attempt at this booking thing. I'll keep this very short and sweet. I've decided on this project because I've fucking tried everything else over the past year or so I've watched ROH 2006-2008 (and I'm still in the middle of 2008), and it's by far my favourite time period for any promotion in the world, ever. I know that an ROH thread may not be as conventional as say the WWE or TNA, due to not having a TV show, but I know how it will work, and I know for a fact that I will be learning and progressing as I move along, as should you.
Due to the nature of the thread, and the way ROH presented it's product back then, a lot of updates and posts won't be shows or previews, it will be bits and bobs from the ROH website: hyping events, announcing matches, online videos etc. (similr to Shock's ROH thread a few years ago, if any of you can remember that). The exact same kind of thing the company used to do it's self back in the day. Will I ever make it so the company has a TV deal? Possibly, but that is not a part of the plan any time soon. Yes, it will be very heavily wrestling based, but there will be promos, there will be character developments and their will be angles/feuds, so don't fear Sports Entertainment fans.
We have WWE threads, TNA threads and created feds. Let's see if a Ring Of Honor thread can work.
So yeah. Do your shit, and I'll try and do mine. Peace.
Always a fan of your work and this seems like a great project. ROH around this time (or ROH in general, really) was a promotion that has an identity, but that you can readily craft into something completely your own. Plus, I'm all for something different. Good luck, homie
This is different which is why I'm sure everyone will be checking this out. I don't know much about ROH, just snippets of it but I'm going to follow this project just 'cause I know you'll write it well. Stick with this one man. You sounded really excited about it when we talked about it, so this should be a good one. Goodluck!
Glad to see someone with a proven track record and as good of a booker as you taking on ROH. With all the TNA/WWE threads around, it's always good to see people try and take on something different and this is certainly a lot different.
ROH was awesome at this point, the roster was stacked and they had so much potential to go on and actually push towards and through the proverbial glass ceiling that they seem to still be struggling to break through.
Definitely interested to see how you're going to work build the shows to develop feuds and storylines.
Most importantly, this title is fucking awesome. The Age Of The Fall are one of my favourite stables of all time, I fucking love the group and was considering bringing them into WWE at one point when throwing around ideas for a new BTB.
Good to see you back and best of luck with this, I'll certainly be keeping my eye on this one.
So this is what finally draws me into the BTB Section. OA badass stable and one of the greatest periods in ROH. I'm stoked to read this and you seem excited to write it. I love the way it sounds you'll go about this. Good luck

- Our "Man Up" Pay-Per-View just three days ago will be one that everybody in the wrestling world will never forget for many reasons. The main talking point coming out of the event, however, will be the disturbing and grotesque debut of the faction led by Jimmy Jacobs, called The Age Of The Fall. The next ROH event: HONOR NATION, will be held in Boston, MA on October 5th, 2007 and it will be there that we will see all of the fall out of the horrendous ongoings that took place on September 15.
- Already lined up for Honor Nation is ROH World Heavyweight Champion, Takeshi Morishima, defending his title against "Mr Wrestling" Kevin Steen. However, we can now confirm three more matches for Honor Nation: Kevin Steen's best friend and tag team partner, El Generico, will take on Takeshi Morishima's Pro Wrestling NOAH cohort, Naomichi Marifuji, in a rematch from Motor City Madness on September 14th, which arguably stole the show. The other two confirmed matches stem from the shocking ending to Man Up, as each Briscoe Brother will take on a member of The Age Of The Fall, as Jay will square off with The Necro Butcher in a No DQ match, and Mark will go up against Tyler Black! The war between The Briscoes and The Age Of The Fall has only just begun, but we know it not going to pretty.
- As a part of the double shot weekend, the night after Honor Nation, ROH presents SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST, in Edison, NJ. The event will consist of six qualifying matches and the Survival Of The Fittest match it's self, as well as some special attraction matches that will be announced at a later date. However so far, we can announce six of the twelve men who will compete in the qualifiers: Austin Aries, Adam Pearce, Chris Hero, Claudio Castagnoli, El Generico and the winner of a newly added match for Honor Nation the night before between Jack Evans and Davey Richards! The qualifying matches will be decided on the day by a random draw! More participants shall be announced later this week.
- More news regarding Honor Nation, Survival Of The Fittest and other ROH events will be released in the week.

Thanks for all of your support so far. These Newswire things will get better as I go, I'm just trying to get used to them. I'll be posting another Newswire which will round off the Honor Nation card as well as the wrestlers involved in the SOTF qualifiers. I'll then post the video wire hyping up the show, and then possibly a preview, I don't know. This is a smaller show compared to others, so it will not be in full, and instead it will be in extended recap.
