I have no idea. I honestly havent really kept in touch with indy wrestling once the kings left roh and jim cornette turned it into smokey mountain of honor wrestling. God fuck jim cornette. Being an roh fan from day one down at the murphy rec center where the christopher street connections was getting destroyed by "da hit squad" it saddens me to see what its become. Cornette drove it towards 1995 wcw and sinclair broadcasting parked in that spot. Ki, joe, homicide, punk, dragon, briscoes, cabana, a double and genext has turned into davey, steen, elgin, roddy, briscoes, lethal. In other words, a shell of its former self
Roh died when tyler black left. At that point joe/dragon/nigel/punk had left. They finally found a future star (hey jerry lynn how ya doin?) to put the title on and he up and left. At that point all you had was the kings, the briscoes, the american wolves, and steenerico to build a company on. Wolves broke up which ended with 18 months of davey vs roddy vs eddie or some variation. Aries left, kings left, cabana left, generico left, wolves got overexposed, kenny king left (when kenny kimg leaves your company and its a huge hit to your talent level youre doing something wrong)
Anyways moral of the story is youre left with a bunch of roderick strong clones kicking people and dping back breakers all the god damn time.
Apparently half of "future shock" is one foot put the door and steen may be following him leaving the door open to another 18 months of davey vs eddie vs roddy, that is davey decides to stick around. Roddy? Eddie? Elgin? Lethal? Thats who you plan to build a company around? Fuck outta here. Theyre all the same guy give or take some power moves. Vince did to roh what he did to ecw, wcw, the nwa, smw, etc. he took the stars, left the rest for the mid majors (samoa joe, kenny king in tna), and in four years will buy the tape library. Its sad and i hate to say/see it but thats whats happening. Roh was a real alternative to wwe (like ecw was) and vince saw this and crushed the life out of them while leaving the clueless wcw (tna) to try to compete with an actual pro wrestling company.
I do apologize for the rant, had zero intentions of it going in but since its there might as well live with it, kinda like modern day roh
