A WWE Mistake From Ring of Honor
 
A WWE Mistake From Ring of Honor




Well it's that time of the year, wrasslin' fans.



Final battle 2012 is in the books, and weeks later, we're still watching repeats of Ring of Honor Wrestling.



These days the repeats are actually from the pay per view itself. And that's a lot of fun for people like me, who didn't watch the PPV in the first place. But probably not so much fun if you shelled out fifteen bucks to buy the damned thing.



Another complaint for another time ...



Right now I wanna talk to you about how Ring of Honor shit all over the prestige of their TV title.



At the event, Matt Hardy beat Adam Cole with a kick to the nuts. Fair enough, I think. If a guy can just walk up to ya and kick you in the balls, you're weren't gonna win the match anyway.



But my beef with Ring of Honor is this: This was a non-title match. Why?



Wrestling isn't held to the same standards as other story telling mediums. This is a great example.


What's Ring of Honor telling us here? Is Matt Hardy out of Adam Cole's league? Is the TV title beneath him?


Boy, doesn't that drive the prestige of the title through the fucking roof? Why even have the match?


Maybe it's a contract issue? Hardy isn't gonna stick around? Was this was a one time deal?


Then why did he even get a shot?



We see this all the time in the WWE but this is Ring of Honor! The promotion that takes wrestling seriously! That promotes it as a real sport!



In the mythology of Professional Wrestling, why would anyone wanna wrestle Adam Cole? Wouldn't I wanna wrestle Matt Hardy? The guy that beat him?



As far as I'm concerned, until some one else is wearing the strap, the Ring of Honor TV title is a piece of tin. It's worthless. And that's a shame because I think it used to be one of the few second tier titles belts that actually meant something.



Former champ Eddie Edwards went on to win the World Championship. That feels like a long time ago now.

It's building up a rivalry, why do you want to face him? because he has the title

As for why did hardy not win it? he has been a jerk, not caring about ROH and just dont care for the belt, as far as he cares he is better then them all



Not the best finish but its okay
A boxer would not care who or why the person had the title, they just want it, if a boxer wins becuse of judges being stuipd its not going to stop someone form saying "hey I'll face you" so I dont see your whole "real sport" thing

They pretty much said that the reason it was non-title was because Hardy hasn't been in ROH for several years and it was more of a challenge match.

The storyline was Hardy isn't a contracted ROH talent. Therefore it wasn't a title match. Probably have a rematch in the future that will be for the title.

I don't know man, it just cheapens it for me. The champ should be the guy who earned. Non title matches kill it for me. always have.

If that's the case, why even give him a match. Give it to someone who has been around since then. Hardy could have wrestled a non champion.
