Re: ROH Fans, will you buy another ROH iPPV again?

Do you guys think WWNLIVE should stream IPPVs for ROH? WWNLIVE streams usually work well and have a better track record of providing working streams than ROH in-house streams and the GoFightLive streams?

Here's our boy Patrick Edwards:



Fuck this clownshoes. He's a shill and a half and a horrible writer to boot. I am insulted as a fan of the promotion, pissed as a person who appreciates good writing.

I don't think we'll see that happening. Now I'm not 100% sure but I think WWN is owned by the same guy that runs FIP, and he works with Gabe for Evolve/DGUSA. Sal I think. Basically the companies are competitors and ROH won't want to be working with them.

Can't use Cornette as a scapegoat.

Let's stop all this nonsense, if the first 3 mess ups didn't stop fans from buying nothing will. The next IPPV will probably be the most successful IPPV of 2012 among indy companies.

The next iPPV could be the most successful of 2012 but that's not saying a whole ton. And I'm not even sure if it will have the most buys among ROH shows this year. Though I don't know what the WM weekend shows, Border Wars, and Best in the World did numbers wise. And that's for the most part how to measure the success of an iPPV.

That being said Glory by Honor doesn't have enough for me personally to buy which is a little depressing because if they hadn't had the streaming issues it would already look like a buy for me. Its got Steen vs. Elgin and Cole vs. Edwards so would be all aboard. But if I am going to pay any sort of money for a stream of a show I wanna for confident that I'll be able to see it or that it will melt my mind. Nothing can melt my mind in ROH right now. The closest time that they could get there for ME to buy is Final Battle. They are going to have to build up excitement and that's going to take a some time and great execution.

I remember when I was excited for ROH iPPV's. They felt important. Yeah some were less appealing. I was so excited for DBD VIII, with Black vs. Richards, KOW vs. Briscoes in a No DQ match, Daniels vs. Omega, and Steen vs. Generico. From the start with Steen vs. Generico opening it felt special. They threw in 3 MOTYC for good measure. I even got excited to see Glory by Honor IX with it being WGTT debut. Knowing that they'd fall flat I would have been less thrilled but at the time it just seemed so big. Mix that in with another chapter in the captivating Steen/Generico feud,2 ROH legends going at it, and pretty much knowing that it was Black's last match in ROH and it felt like something a fan should watch. I don't think there has been a ROH iPPV that has given me more than 2 reasons at max to feel like if I didn't invest in a show I was going to miss something.

And I think it is a little odd to say it will have the most among the independents. Ring of Honor is in an in-between area. They are bigger than the other independents but still too small to be considered a major promotion. They should pull in more buys than the other promotions. But they should be pulling in at least 1000-2000 buys on their iPPVs. I don't think I have unreasonable expectations there. Maybe the technical issues haven't stopped everyone from buying and still has a decent audience but if it stops a chunk from buying, it stops that chunk from wanting to talk positive of ROH. They need a lot of word of mouth going about to build an audience further, which I assume is the goal for Sinclair.

It seem like you want Adam Pearce back to replace Cornette?

Ain't no way ROH can take it to the next level with their current set up. They are not in a position to do so. They would have to make a drastic change.
