Frankly,ROH is still doing better than every other indy out there. If you given them less than a year, than the others will be dead in a month.
I agree, they're fine.

But they don't want to keep doing this. Sinclair itself isn't the most financially stable company either.

I do think however, that they get a pass because iPPV in general is kind of new territory for wrestling and everything else.

Was going to vote Yes till I read that ridiculous article by Patrick Edwards. Just spitting in the fans faces for actually bothering to buy the show. The customer service with ROH atm is fucking horrible.

I still think ROH next IPPV will do better than other indies IPPVs from a business standpoint.

Who the fuck is Patrick Edwards? Some PR guy for them? I get they're not gonna post stuff that degrades them on their own site and it was only some blog at the back of the site but it's still on their site and it still basically says if you were upset the feed was down for half the show then fuck you, shit happens, ROH gonna ROH.

You'd be surprised then. For Boiling Point they only did about 650 buys before the show and were stuck on 300 until like 24hrs beforehand and thats almost half of the buyers gone since the prior iPPVs months earlier which did 1200-1400 each.

I stopped reading that shit after the first paragraph. I've continued to buy ROH iPPVs and DVDs over the past year even when people shit over their product and continue to support them even if I think the shows will suck eg Nightmare Begins. I still bought them and then some fucking idiot posts shit that clearly ROH condones basically shitting on the only people that were still even interested in ROH.

Yeah seriously fuck whoever wrote that article for ROH. I was annoyed reading it and I would seriously be pissed off if I spent my money on ROH and read that on their website.

I read that article from Patrick Edwards and I must say that is not the way you want to address a situation like what happened with the iPPV. I don't expect their employees to bury their own company, but humility or apologizing isn't a sin either. I want to see these promotions succeed but when you undermine an audience that wants to see you live up to your potential in such a condescending manner, it's insulting.

As far as the OP, I won't be ordering live shows anymore that's for certain. If the card is good and has some things I want to see, I'll likely stick to replays going forward.

It's a shame that they can fuck up this part of their business so much. A couple of years ago the iPPV was looked at as the future of indy wrestling. It was the answer to the dying DVD market and a way for people to be able to see indy shows live without being their. Now the biggest indy company in the US keeps fucking them up and they've managed to get to the point where people don't believe they can deliver a full show in decent quality. This has to be hurting other companies out there that want to try and run iPPVs. If the biggest company can't do something right it seems reasonable to suspect that the smaller ones would also fuck it up.
True. They need to figure something out to stop the iPPV problems or they should simply discontinue them. Maybe they should just do big matches on their TV show and reduce the amount of iPPV's to like 2-4 a year with only the biggest shit (shit thats just "can't miss") happening on them (also with the iPPV problems figured out)....

I won't buy another for a long time. ROH would have to both create a good track record of stable streams and put on a card with several matches I'd want to see. Right now, they don't do either. We'll see what it's like next year.

That is why it's called organized crime.

I know Patrick Edwards is pretty much a shill for ROH but wtf with that article? Love how he barely acknowledged the problems with the ippv before shilling into the next two but you know who he didn't ignore? The evil dirtsheets out to get ROH.

I didn't really plan to buy ippvs like Boiling Point or DBD anyway because of issues like last week and until they can go at least a half year or more without problems it won't even be a consideration. And that's not even considering whether or not the card's any good or not.
